  1. Instapaper: Simon Reynolds (Phil Gyford)

    I put all those Simon Reynolds articles in a folder in Instapaper and here’s the RSS feed. (I’m on Instapaper, btw, but don’t use it a *huge* amount.)

  2. Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music Culture | Reynolds: The History of Our World: The Hardcore Continuum Debate

    More Simon Reynolds to read after that last lot, looking back at debates over The Hardcore Continuum. (via Beyond the Beyond)

  3. Energy Flash

    More from Simon Reynolds on “the Hardcore Continuum”.

  4. The Wire: Adventures in Modern Music: Issues

    Search the page for links to seven articles (and an introduction) by Simon Reynolds from 1992-2005 on the “hardcore continuum”.

  5. When Internet businesses don’t work out as planned… | Ask MetaFilter

    I’m fascinated (and horrified) by this kind of “Internet business” which… does nothing but SEO, “content generation”, ads, auctions… what’s it *for*?

  6. BeaTunes ~ build better playlists

    Interesting metadata editor/finder for music in your iTunes library. Can also do some kind of Genius-like playlist creation.

  7. LRB · Rebecca Solnit · Diary

    If you’re feeling too happy, well worth a read. “A bayou redneck told him: ‘Osama fuckin’ bin Laden could not have imagined, planned or executed more devastation than BP has.’”

  8. This Window: Close It - Safari 5 Port of Helvetireader

    Helvetireader as a Safari Extension, yum. The version of Helvetireader I’d been using was quite old; the latest one is gorgeous.

  9. The Online Photographer: The Best Photography How-To Books

    Excellent, a short list of practical photography book recommendations by someone who knows their stuff.

  10. DecisionLab » FacilitationCamp

    Next Friday and Saturday in Vauxhall. Might be interesting / useful? (via @wendyinfutures)

    @yoz Yes! Oh.

    I now own 84cm of comics and graphic novels, 93cm of magazines. Hmm, sounds like a lot, put like that, but it's great progress.

    Now, why would this cardboard box, designed specifically to hold documents, be a few millimetres too narrow for these folders? Grr.

    Maybe this is the last time I'll ever remove the perforated tractor-feed strips from the sides of old printer paper. Progress!

    @Zoonie It'd never have crossed my mind to occur to me to consider for a moment that Toy Story 3 contained extended peril. Kids are weird.

    @chrislunch You're a better man than me. I'm just now putting my (admittedly much-filtered) pre-digital life into labelled folders.

    Although it's been raining, it looks like I'm still supposed to water the *indoor* plants by hand.
