It’s amazing to me how my stomach drops and my heart races with near-romantic nostalgia when it comes to the mid 90s. Maybe because it was a more interesting idea of the future...maybe it was before I’d end up living in the nightmare that is the alternate path my industry and community took with who got the visibility etc. Doesn’t matter. I make my own surroundings...I bend the settings to fit...reality as we know it will be our asset again soon. Also Orbital. #hackers #1995 #zerocool#angelinajolieshottestmovie#theplague#hackthegibson#halcyononandon#orbital#technologicalhybrid
Today we lost big Jack. He and his brother came to us now more than 9 years ago. They’ve been one of the lights of my life and a source of unconditional love and affection both ways in times of both light and dark. He was larger than life and built like a Clydesdale. I’m just in a fog right now...it happened so fast but in the end the alternative would’ve been incalculable suffering. I miss these guys enough as it is since they live back in NY with my folks...but now I’m just kinda flattened. Animals are the most precious of all life. Safe journey, Jackums cat.
Finding out this album was on iTunes today is literally the happiest thing that has happened to me in the last few days. One of my original sources of excitement for moving to LA were all the filming locations of some of my favorite movies being near me. In this case we are specifically talking about arguably the greatest modern heist film of all time, Michael Mann’s Heat. This song was basically impossible to find unless you bought the entire OST album, which I for one reason or another never got around to. I kinda just wanted this. It captured the swagger and sleekness of that film even in the few seconds it appeared in the movie. It makes me think of a time back before I fully saw the true oxygen thieving ugliness and greed and subhuman weasel garbage people shit that makes up this scene out here. A better time. A less learned but more optimistic time. #heat#michaelmann#passengers#brianeno#vincenthanna#neilmccauley#chrisshiherlis#itakescores#fullyautomaticweaponsinDTLA #1995 #the90swerehumanityslasthighpoint
