Friday 15th April, 2022 - Midweek Special - Minimal commentary link dump! [Parental Advisory: Mind buffet]
Hello and welcome to my newsletter!
Another season 2 instalment…
This week has been intense.
I was re-listening to the latest Punk News Em More music selection yesterday.
Several of the tracks that I previously wasn’t too keen on, now sounded pretty cool. But the thing that stood out to me was the overall selection, there’s lots of noisey stuff and heavy guitars, which is great and all, but there’s a change of pace towards the end that totally and unexpectedly hit me in the feels. I wasn’t expecting that at all.
It doesn’t languish there for too long though, getting right back to it with some bad ass spanish girl punk. Music is the best software.
Anyhow I remembered that I didn’t have a chance to send out last week’s edition, so figured I’d just send that out, along with a link dump without much comments.
I’m sort of liking this odd music and web programming blend that’s been materialising the past few weeks. I wonder where it will lead.
And of course, the link dump!
