Do you remember the Windows 95 startup sound?

Windows 95 Screen Shot
You know you want to download it and set it as your new default startup sound!

My life flashes before my eyes everytime I hear this.

Also, apparently Brian Eno composed this!

A Strangely Isolated Place – Ulrich Schnauss

ulrich schnauss

His music is filled with influences from everything I've ever admired (shoegazer + downtempo electro + samplings). A Letter from Home really transports you into another world and On My Own feels like a cool alien invasion adventure. Like... the aliens didn't turn out to be that bad and they have their culture to share with us type thing.

All these can be found on his 2003 album A Strangely Isolated Place.

This guy really flew under the radar with a few music blogs and I really don't understand why. I guess you can't really 'dance' to this.

My customised Munny

My friend Dittman bought me a DIY Kidrobot Munny when he went to visit San Francisco. It was used for Fei's customised birthday wishes.

Later on, I bought my own (this was a year ago) and didn't get around to it until today. This is my first one so please don't judge!

I used several artists as references, off the top of my head Jon Burgerman.

Shop Cat vs Intruder Cat

Don't we all love small business politics? Especially when cats that hang around the National Geographics and computer books sections get involved. The battle continues between Shop Cat and Intruder Cat.

Found in Gould's second hand bookstore on King St.

Intruder cat... likes sitting... near the National Geographic magazines and the Computer Books section. When we eject him from the shop and shout "Bad Cat", thinks it is just the most wonderful games, and comes in again so that the fun can continue.

If Bladerunner were a musical directed by David Bowie…

... then you would find a song like this in its soundtrack. Or maybe not, but it is a great tune. How would you describe it?

Better known as one half of Digitalism, this is Jens Moelle's solo project as a part of his recently released EP.
