Hideki Kaji's Ice Cream Man, reviewed by Patrick St. Michel

Hideki Kaji: Ice Cream Man

Indie-pop artist Hideki Kaji has been one of the most consistent forces in Japanese music over the last two decades. The Tokyo singer-songwriter’s latest album, Ice Cream Man, is his 15th original full-length, and it marks no major sonic changes from what preceded it.

The #1s' The Number Ones, reviewed by @jason_m_heller

The #1s: The Number Ones

Power-pop foursome the #1s have been kicking around the Dublin scene for a couple of years now, and their self-titled debut album marks the point where this scene may start to get noticed a bit more. It's more ambitious and unabashedly brilliant than four modest walls can contain.

Rolling Stone Australia — Exclusive Stream of Geoffrey O'Connor's New Album 'Fan Fiction'

by Jonny Nail | August 4th, 2014 11:32:AM EST The nuances of pop has always been Geoffrey O'Connor's explorative focus. The band he once fronted, The Crayon Fields, were experts at warping the genre's defining characteristics. An unforced catchiness twisted into experimental territory. Uptempo optimism dragged into dark, cold spaces. There was a te...

Actual Water's Call 4 Fun, reviewed by @jeremydlarson

Actual Water: Call 4 Fun

Actual Water are a Toronto-based band that makes garage-y power pop, and nowhere on Call 4 Fun do they take themselves too seriously. Their music is steadily becoming simpler while putting more focus on the hooks, which turns out to be a good thing.

### What the gets wrong about hackers

source: http://kernelmag.dailydot.com/issue-sections/staff-editorials/9925/media-hackers-wrong-housh/

The majority of “hacks” that you might hear about on the nightly news or in publications are simple automated attacks. You download a program someone else built, set the target, and click a few buttons. Sometimes you don’t even set a target, you just release it into the wilderness of the and hope it hits something. It takes no whatsoever.

### Wikipedia Zero and Net Neutrality: Protecting the Internet as a Public Space

source: https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/08/01/wikipedia-zero-and-net-neutrality-protecting-the-internet/

We believe that policymakers should make global communications policies that serve the public interest. It is not in the interests of the public to have an Internet with slow and fast lanes where few commercial players dominate our information . And it is absolutely in the interests of the public to use the Internet to provide free access to education, knowledge, medical information, or other public services. We believe that these goals are entirely consistent, and we hope Wikipedia Zero can serve as a model for how to balance these interests carefully.

**So Wikipedia has now a monopoly of knowledge and that's not against neutrality?**

Music trivia: the singer on "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea is Charli XCX who also co-wrote the song. If she sounds familiar that's becuase she sings on I Don't Care' by Iccona Pop (which she also wrote), however the only line she sings on this track is "I don't care, I love it".

Facebook have managed to chew my data this week with the all new pop up already playing videos on my time line. Not impressed. Keep clicking on "I do not want to see this" When it asks me why, there is no option to say you are chewing up my fucking data without my permission. So just fucking cut it out FaceBook! Or offer us a free data package.
