Any Downers?

Read up on the Forbidden Library and be confronted with list after list of banned or challenged books.

(via presurfer)

What’s Up Doc?

120 years of electronic musical instruments. First mention of the Synclavier as early as 1975. Prize for silliest name of an electronic instrument: the Composer-Tron. (“It sounds really good, but I’d add some Composer-Tron into the mix.”)

Zappa Of The Month Club

LA Times: “Not Just In It For the Money” (subscr. req.). A notable quote: “The details are still being worked out, but Gail Zappa, Frank’s widow, says that the concept is pretty simple. Fans will pay an annual fee (probably around $100) and receive a set number of new releases each year (probably five), some of which will not be available elsewhere. Subscribers will have some level of choice as to what titles they receive from an ever-expanding catalog, and will also likely get bonus material and other special merchandise.”
