I couldn’t see how to leave a tip that would go towards the National Lawyers Guild, so did it manually after the fact. Hope they get credit.
God bless you Killer Mike. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSWasOhArfM

An interesting essay on the politics and aesthetics of Brexit-era British boomer resentment as seen through the writings of Morrissey, by Owen Hatherley:
As an experiment, I'm going to try a live stream. It's at http://thurk.org:8103 ... as this is pretty impromptu, I'm just going to start now and see how it goes.
Anyone who wants to listen, enjoy! I'll probably improvise for about an hour. I have no clue of the "quality". :)
A technical argument for why vinyl sound quality is actually terrible:
if you know a thing or two about audio cassette decks...
I have a pioneer CT-43 that worked great in the shop when I bought it back in august or so, and I brought it home and it fails to play.
rewind and fast forward work fine and the tape moves, but playing results in a little bit of clicking and whirring, but the tape itself doesn't move. there's a slight burning smell when that happens, maybe a belt burning?
my expectation is that something got jostled out of place while the deck was in transit.
I've uploaded a copy of the service manual to https://buttslol.s3.amazonaws.com/pub/ct43.pdf, if anybody could point me toward a probable cause so I can pop it open and take a look.
Working from home and need some tunes?
My latest discovery: France's 'FIP Radio'
"Curious and sophisticated: Since 1971 FIP offers a versatile program of jazz, chansons, world music and electronic tunes."
Streams here: https://www.radio.net/s/fip
Alternatively, mix their playlist in with others over at https://radio.eldritch.cafe/ by adding the following
instance and hashtag: mamot.fr ; fipradio
Hewwo fediverse, Eldritch Radio is now live at https://radio.eldritch.cafe !
It's a web player for media shared here with hashtags. Maybe you already know https://pouet.audio/ ? Eldritch Radio is greatly inspired by it but allow settings customization and is more user friendly (and gay).
