    Not quite elementary school - but far enough... it feels like a lifetime ago. Especially when I realise the girls I had a crush on are now 46 and so on o_O

    I know, right. I bought the single - and even listened to the remixes. Of which singles at the time seemed to be stuffed with.

    From that era, I feel British music was on the cutting edge of electronic music. Happy Mondays are interesting to me from the Madchester scene in making what we call alternative rock danceable. Chemical Brothers are one of my favorite groups and I really like The Prodigy as well. The downtempo/trip hop group Massive Attack was very groundbreaking and made a collage of genres which the mainstream is just starting to catch up to today. Radiohead's OK Computer is my favorite album of the 90's.

    This was actually 1988 but was a major influence on the following decade none the less.

    cg3d w/freestyle filter was fun. the music with it was meh, but the animation was fun.

    89 kzap was gone but kvmr had come into existence. in the mid 90s i married for the first time at the age of 40 something. four of five years ago she up and died on me.

    90s i thought/hoped the election of clinton would reverse the raygun doctrin. still think it slowed it down a bit, but made a lot of mistakes too. and it was only a temporary semi-reprieve.

    got back online after a bit of hiatus from the late 80s to early 90s.

    trains and furrys the internet rewarded me with, despite bizdroidism screwing up what the net was supposed to have been for when it first went public.

    hearts of space, celtic, and music festivals for the music context. r.i.a.a. and clearchannel pretty much turned what it touched to crap.

    ambient and filk are my genre. (filk being the folk music of fictional characters and settings, most often from science fiction and fantasy universes).

    space music becan with the therimin and the melotron and the 70s introduction of modular analog synthasis. entered the digital age with midi and keeps i don't know getting better, but keeps being better then most things else.

    and now we've got singing robots/programs; aka u.t.a.u.

    never could much care for anything that romanticized aggressiveness, so that mostly leaves out country and rap.

    still don't pay a damd bit of attention to what is commercial. i have my favorite semi-professionals and non-professionals i like to listen to.

    those who give stuff away legitimately themselves are pretty much all i listen to any more.
