Like the rest of the #TIMJ community I was bowled over with the announcement of their intent to archive the service in September.
But life does go on and so no grief riddled songs for me, I'm intent to make every one of my last jams to count. I would just like to say that this has been one hell of a journey, I have learnt much, discovered much and this is all down to the wonderful community that is #TIMJ you guys rock! Thank you and for those switching over see you over at... http://www.letsloop.com/Cornishson73 8
'We're off to a good start. Play it cool.'
PSB is a London duo named Wrigglesworth and Willgoose. They take found sounds from old archives, mix them with modern electronic instrumentation, and the end result is for my money, rather eargasmic. Their 2nd album is titled The Race For Space and it should be available for purchase online or at record stores by the time you read this. I don't read books that much anymore cuz I'm lazy, but one book I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend is called Failure Is Not An Option by Gene Kranz, NASA Flight Director for the Gemini, Mercury, and Apollo missions. He's the guy shouting "RETRO.. FIDO.. GUIDANCE.. CNTRL.." in his book Gene explains he never actually said those words the Ron Howard movie Apollo 13 says he did. Failure was very much an option at the time, but it's one Gene never accepted. The NASA space program is one of the greatest achievements in human history. Here's hoping humans will go back to the moon and beyond someday.
