Everything about this makes me want to spit. So, Bono & the Edge are completely blameless; give a (critically acclaimed and award-winning) female director complete artistic freedom and she’ll totally FUCK THINGS UP beyond repair. Because when something goes wrong in a musical, it’s clearly about the direction alone. Who cares about the story, or oh, you know, the score? Sheesh.
Man, this is such a great idea — but the user interface of the timeline is horrible. As someone who grapples with this kind of thing every day, I feel some sympathy for the design team at the Guardian, but oh my! It’s so ugly!
Well hello. “The Library of Congress presents the National Jukebox, which makes historical sound recordings available to the public free of charge. The Jukebox includes recordings from the extraordinary collections of the Library of Congress Packard Campus for Audio Visual Conservation and other contributing libraries and archives. Recordings in the Jukebox were issued on record labels now owned by Sony Music Entertainment, which has granted the Library of Congress a gratis license to stream acoustical recordings. At launch, the Jukebox includes more than 10,000 recordings made by the Victor Talking Machine Company between 1901 and 1925. Jukebox content will be increased regularly, with additional Victor recordings and acoustically recorded titles made by other Sony-owned U.S. labels, including Columbia, OKeh, and others.”
Somewhere in this piece (I think) is a reason as to why, though I am an otherwise wonderful person in a good place spiritually, mentally, and physically, I am currently suffering from the worst case of unending access fatigue of all time.
