Oh, the cult #JRock music video from L'Arc～en～Ciel finally made it officially to YouTube last month. The AVI/MPEG file used to be quite popular 20 years ago in a few Japanophile FTP/FXP/VCD sites. Looks like the official version is just a quick upscaled/deinterlaced version of the crappy SD digital source that was circulating at the time though :/

@alcstrt I tried my best to do them in respect of the original vision of the author :)
The Man in the White Suit (1951)
Completely fascinating 50s comedy/drama about a chemical engineer who comes up with a fabric that is virtually indestructible and can't be stained. As a result manufacturer owners/boards want to get rid of his invention because of the damage to their business, but also the manufacturer workers/unions because of the threat to their job.
How the U.S. betrayed the Marshall Islands, kindling the next #nuclear disaster (2019)
"U.S. authorities later cleaned up contaminated soil on Enewetak Atoll, where the United States not only detonated the bulk of its [40s and 50s] weapons tests but, as The Times has learned, also conducted a dozen #biologicalweapons tests and dumped 130 tons of soil from an irradiated Nevada testing site. It then deposited the atoll’s most lethal debris and soil into the dome.
Now the concrete coffin, which locals call “the Tomb,” is at risk of collapsing from rising seas and other effects of #climatechange."
@paul My biggest issue with MIDI is the resolution. I still have a small Doepfer Pocket Control that I bought almost two decades ago to use with Pd and I love/hate it. Perfect size, and the thing is indestructible, but the need to smooth/interpolate the incoming values to have anything usable was really a pain.
@paul "MIDI sucks. This isn’t just an opinion, it is a philosophy." :)
@grafton9 true... I guess in that case it becomes a sign of authenticity to the collection :)
@grafton9 shame they rar'ed most of the issues, makes a PITA to browse.
