ALSO is a collection of miscellaneous bits I find during the week, and also the name of the quarterly print zine I send out to members.
:: Watch a playlist on YouTube of songs and videos I liked from January 2018.
:: ‘DC-Area Record Label Cuneiform Has Gone on Hiatus, and It May Not Come Back‘ – “The default now is free, and I can’t run an office on free.”
:: ‘Aaron Turner on Isis, Hydra Head, and Like a Million Other Projects.’ A nice read, but give the website a minute (or two) to load (lots of YouTube embeds).
:: “Maybe instead of checking Twitter as soon as we finish this paragraph, we should start building our RSS readers instead,” from ‘Is 2018 the Year We Step Away From Social Media?’ by Nicole Dieker. I know I’ve been spending less time on Twitter this year.
:: Check out and support ‘Bedrock: A Delicate Exchange,’ which is the work of “three women coming together to form a collaborative relationship that is unfound in literary platforms.”
:: Being that it’s Black History Month, Kim Kelly of Noisey put together a Twitter thread of metal bands that include black musicians. You may have noticed the first two questions of February have featured black greatness. More of that awesomeness in the coming weeks.
