"Home Taping Is Killing Music": When the Music Industry Waged War on the Cassette Tape in the 1980s, and Punk Bands Fought Back

This is so good. I only ever had Alternative Tentacles stuff on vinyl.

Let me actualize this:

Sadly the 90s revolution did not actualized except for FaceBook, Google, etc
- we built the information society and provided code and collaboration
- , they knifed us, but maybe we did it to ourselves by not understanding the anti-nature of synthesis,
-but nobody wants to hear this because it conflicts with feel-good memes
- so it goes on

> not understanding the anti-nature of synthesis

Please explain this to me. Genuinely curious.

> anti-nature of synthesis

What do you mean?

>> anti-nature of synthesis
>What do you mean?
Celebration of disease (you asked)

I did ask and am not disappointed with the answer, but am not entirely content with it either. Sounds like the tip of an iceberg I'm unfamiliar with. Is this language ("anti-nature" etc.) from a specific discipline? Puzzled and curious. 😄

Sorry! I either hadn't noticed or couldn't remember.
