Many, abounding moons ago some of you may bethink "The Screwdriver E-NI- MKII", which is what I assuredly acclimatized on afterwards trying/tinkering with abundant kits. I fell in adulation with the screwdriver, and accurately so, its stood the analysis of time as a bedrock solid, bullet-proof device.
Wear and breach takes its assessment however, and abundance is starting to not action as abundant as it already did, and award backup locations is acceptable added and added difficult (for example, the button awning I had has continued back broken, and I ran out of my spares, and you just can't acquisition them anymore, so the button about will get accidentally pushed, afire out atomizers, etc). This is just one of abounding issues I've been accepting in contempo history, so its become bright its time to get a new device.
I started looking, and I'm addled at what to buy. I accept no clue. I accept been accomplishing some account through the forums and such and still can't absolutely put my feel on what I should get. Oddysey? Electron? Something else? I accept no clue.

A somber sleep falls upon Saturn,
as the Golden Age of Man comes to and end,
passing like silver moons' phases to another cycle of time,
and the fortunes of both man and of woman,
they are paid for in currency of toil and strife,
like the coin paid to the ferryman of the River Styx,
in which mortality meets finally it's end.
His rings orbit no longer in joy for opulence and wealth upon the Terran sphere,
as the arrears of humankind causes humanity to pay for the wages of its sin,
and the din and misery of war starts slowly to creep forward,
as The Sun,
before a source of warmth,
it blazes forth in oppressive heat,
breeding the locusts that come from corruption of matter in rot,
as the trials and tribulations of humanity,
they now come to be to the gods to be as naught.
how I mourn for Saturn in his mysterious sleep,
the mystery of how this silver age that has come to pass,
it settles upon my brow,
and I fear now that this age of silver that just now dawns,
that it will recede further to an e'en more corrupted age of bronze,
in which humanity shall strive to till the soil with broken back and heavy heart,
asking in his soul what has come to pass,
after a time in bounteous glory,
the gods have come to abandon them to sorrowed repast...

We've had such amazing turnout for the Nevermore project. This weekend is, for now, our last on-air edition of the project, and there's still room for a few more tracks (another hour's worth). If you haven't yet submitted a track and would like to, or if you want to submit another edition, please do!
As a reminder, here is the brief: http://relaxedmachinery.ning.com/profiles/blogs/nevermore-project-brief-call-for-ambient-tracks-for-release
The link to the raw stems is available at the end of the brief. If you haven't yet participated, please do read the whole brief.
Listening to Meltstream should accomplish two things: solidify Steve Brand as a vital name in the current ambient canon, and introduce you to new talent Roy Mattson. (Having listened, I immediately headed off to Mattson’s site to check out his solo work, and I suggest you do so, too.) The duo’s chemistry first bubbled up during a 2007 sound workshop hosted by Steve Roach, and Meltstream is the initial culmination of the work that began there. All in all, it is a lush and gorgeous drift packed with big ambient vistas, wisely utilized field recordings, and skillful organic touches. As it gently makes its way through an hour, Meltstreamnever feels the need to raise its voice above a confident and confiding whisper. There are times when things get so quiet, I have actually stopped to check if I’d set my player’s volume too low. This, obviously, makes it an excellent open-air listen as it drifts mistily through your space, just another element in the atmosphere;…Continue
US soundscaper and one of the Relaxed Machinery recording aces Steve Brand has released during the last three years several phenomenal albums, which include "Over-soul", "The Great Hoop", "Subtle Movements Inside" or his 2014 collaborative recording "Meltstream" with Roy Mattson. So no wonder my expectations are again really high. Just the same as with "Meltstream", the pro CDr album comes again in a very attractive 4-panel digipak (images and design by Steve Brand). According to the album's liner notes, Steve was working on initial tracks for this album since early 2011 and as far I remember, this album was originally scheduled to be released on Kristian Kotarac's renowned Nextera label (the home of many exceptional Oophoi, Klaus Wiese, Mathias Grassow... CDs). Unfortunately, this never happened due to Kristian's unexpected death at the end of February 2013. Thus life events with personal loses and changes are deeply reflected in "The Space Between", which was released at the beginning of October 2014 on Relaxed Machinery.
The album consists of four lengthier tracks, all clocking between 15 and 20 minutes. "A Thousand Little Wounds" unveils the journey with unfathomable dronescaping, powerfully immersing and drifting through magnificently nuanced sceneries, masterfully permeated with dramatically massive tensions and transcendentally culminating, ear-piercing dissonances. An array of contemplative tinkles occasionally sneaks in to diminish the magmatic flow of mammoth soundwalls. Credited as guest on this drone tour de force is Peter James for his bass craftiness. Stunningly transporting odyssey awaits here, join…
Here is a sample of my new album, tracks are as follows:
Commodity Is A Fetish
In The Crimson
Memory of a Voyage
Real Life Is Elsewhere
The Art Of Conversation
The Glass Key
The Impossible Invisible
The Mysteries of the Horizon 3

UNESCO World Heritage Sites + Ancient Aliens
Watched a couple episodes of Ancient Aliens - the first season. Part of me loves shows like this and part of me doesn't. I've seen other episodes over the years.
They go to ancient places - megaliths - temples - all around the world. They sometimes pop one up I haven't heard of before or remind me of a place and I start doing internet searching on them. I love ancient history. I love when archaeologists find something that was long buried and it turns our ideas of where we (as the human race) came from.
Obviously everything on this show is Alien related - kind of hard to complain about a show linking everything to Aliens when the show is title Ancient Aliens. This part makes me laugh every time... "we don't know how this was build. I'm not saying it was aliens... but there's no proof it wasn't aliens." That sort of circular logic could be used for anything here... I'm not saying it was my imaginary friend, but there's no proof it wasn't, therefor, it was my imaginary friend.
So - where's UNESCO come into this post? If you want to find these ancient places... and some modern ones. Places that are unique to the culture of specific areas and the world... UNESCO is a place to go visit.
There's a wonderful interactive map: http://whc.unesco.org/en/interactive-map/
And an easy to browse list: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/
You can literally take a cultural historical tour of the world from your computer. I've found so many awesome places using this as the jump point to further research.
There are places in this world, but natural and made by us crazy humans - that are ASTOUNDING. Every so often I go into a phase of…Continue
