Last month Jay-Z proclaimed the death of autotune, a digital effect with it's roots in analog vocoders developed early in the 20th century.

Originally developed with the telecommunications industry in mind, the technology was eventually discovered by musicians who began to incorperate it into compositions as a novelty.

The Sonovox

Here's a clip of Alvino Rey whose 'singing guitar' used technology that would eventually become the Talkbox.

Along with the vocoder, the talkbox was frequently dismissed as a gimmick.
Nonetheless these devices that electronically merge the voice with instrumentation found their way onto a huge number of records, across genres and across decades throughout the 20th century.

weegee's distortions

from matthewmarks.com:

"Arthur Fellig (1899-1968), known as Weegee, began work as a freelance photojournalist for New York tabloids in 1935. A decade later, he became famous after the publication of his first book, Naked City. His images of car crashes, murder scenes, and life in the streets of the city are widely known and enormously influential. Less well known, however, is the work to which he devoted the last twenty years of his life, what he called “his ‘distortions’, ‘creative photography’, or most often his ‘art’.”

for some reason, i've been severely lax on the showing the interweb things i like on the interweb front lately... well no more.

everything is terrible
not that there's much of a chance you don't know about this yet... i mean, if you are bothering to read this blog, you are likely severely addicted to radical insanity, pointless/pointed media, and possibly drugs... or maybe you just know somebody who knows somebody, and you really like inconsistency in updates. but i digress, did i have a point? yes... yes i did. everything is in fact terrible. and i very much appreciate people who can distill shit media down to it's crunchy, bitter awesome. and that's exactly what this is about... and yeah, thats right... i put the same link in 4 times now... so fucking go there (5) all-ready. it's not all perfect, but it is consistently horrible in an oft perfect way. scroll through the older posts... waste some time... if the numbers are right... theres a good chance you're unemployed... so have fun with it...
here's a taste... welcome to my mind.

why am i so different?

Christy Karacas on Youtube

via selfademus

After like 20 seconds into this cartoon I was thinking 'this reminds me of Superjail'.

I looked up the names in the links, and found out that this is beacuse Christy Karacas worked on both of them. True story.
