    See WTF am I gonna do without this thread periodically melting my face?!
  • Soul Strut 25. This is the End.

    Also... the Strut 200 continues to reveal new dimensions to me (though while I understand Sayer being on there, it hasn't blown my mind yet). I got a new dedicated music player (mainly cause I hate doing that stuff with touchscreens) and have been going through my digital stuff filling it up. That pile is turning up some stuff I'd ignored before.

    Raj's work on stuff like that, beyond just keeping the site up, shouldn't be overlooked.
  • Japan digging 2024

    Osaka is great. I'd say it actually competed with Tokyo, in my individual experience with records, though maybe that's just me. It was a while back now though so I can't drop any particulars. I think King Kong Records was good? I dunno, there were several and all pretty accessible from each other. And Osaka itself is really fun for non-record stuff.

    Kyoto had only a few shops but I had a good time at Jet Set.
  • Rap You're Liking

    This is not a "new rap I'm liking" post, but I am liking the MOBBULATOR releases of west coast mobb music obscurities mixed and chopped by peninsula legend Luke Sick. If anybody wants a download code for vol. 3 I happen to have some, hit me up. of course the real way to experience this kind of thing is in a car system via tape deck though

  • Soul Strut 25. This is the End.

    Damn, the announcement comes down just as I'm on a two week vacation away from computers. Sad to see it go, but it isn't what it was, for sure. I still have the pre-crash HTML archive, I listened to "Rockin' With Seka" in like 2000 on RealfuckingAudio as a mid-teenager just getting into music that wasn't on the radio, read the forums for like 10 years but didn't get around to posting actively till things were slowing down. Oh well, I hope you do the exit justice, Raj, and thanks for the decades of effort. 

    Stuff like this is the only thing electronic communications have that approaches a real community - a dude devotes his own time and effort to sustaining a place where one can form. Once ad sales are the business, or subscriptions, or automatically harvested personal data, that community shit is out the window.

    So much of the music that's sustained me in life, whole genres and such, I found out about from the Strut, so thanks to all of you, especially Superpoaster and Puto Bong Bong.
