Donnacha Costello – Ten Years Later

Donnacha Costello

Donnacha Costello’s ‘Color Series’ first debuted on his own label ‘Minimise’ in 2004 and over the next year or so, evolved into ten releases which to this day remain some of my favourite vinyl records. With influences ranging from Aphex Twin, Plastikman, Autechre, Model 500 and Farley Jackmaster Funk, Donnacha reached into new territory with this series, combining his love of synths, techno music and in many instances, ambient music, to produce a collectable and sought after series of vinyl, and a defining style of music for many of today’s producers.

A fairly quick and dirty map of the roadtrip to and from Black Rock City this summer. I’ll try to improve this over the next few days, ideally at least changing the color!

Why NORAD tracks Santa

One morning that December, U.S. Air Force Col. Harry Shoup, the director of operations at CONAD, the Continental Air Defense Command — NORAD’s predecessor — got a phone call at his Colorado Springs, Colo., office. This was no laughing matter. The call had come in on one of the top secret lines inside CONAD that only rang in the case of a crisis.

Grabbing the phone, Shoup must have expected the worst. Instead, a tiny voice asked, “Is this Santa Claus?

A Christmas tradition is born on the United States strategic defense nuclear hotline.

AppleTV 2 1602 error

After hours of frustration after a failed upgrade attempt, try restoring without the power plug. The usb alone should be enough to power your AppleTV 2, and for some odd reason, causes the restore to actually work.
