Welcome everyone. Chat is open!
TAndy 10:51:26 AM
Sick show so far Casey
Casey (host) 10:55:25 AM
Thank you!
TAndy 10:55:59 AM
Dude that Froth!! Just got added to my wishlist
Casey (host) 10:56:53 AM
That album is great! I remember seeing a lot of buzz around it when it came out but not much since then
TAndy 10:58:42 AM
Before I buy I'll have to check out their KEXP liveset, possibly later when I'm out ;)
TAndy 10:59:57 AM
Also appreciate the bandcamp links when applicable, wish Spinitron had that functionality by default.
Casey (host) 11:09:40 AM
Yeah definitely a perk to using it vs. the old playlists on our website
Casey (host) 11:10:05 AM
Fortunately I am of the MySpace generation, the last to learn HTML on their own
TAndy 11:11:15 AM
Oh sick. If Tumblr stayed caught on for another few years I would have been proficient enough myself.
TAndy 11:11:55 AM
Just wish things were as simple as BBcode lol
Casey (host) 11:17:22 AM
I actually learned from writing wikis. Tumblr had some interesting stuff though. You don't see people using custom cursors anymore
TAndy 11:18:55 AM
oh hell yeah king tubby. And yeah, the whole customized individual look is almost extinct now, you're lucky to even change your avatar on some sites anymore.
Casey (host) 11:23:19 AM
There is a new platform called NeoCities that's trying to bring back some of the amateurish (for lack of a better word) 90s style. I think Pax is working on one for consolidating their playlists and portfolio
TAndy 11:25:52 AM
oh word?? I completely forgot about neocities, nice!
Casey (host) 11:30:41 AM
Yeah I helped them collect some of their old playlist data a few weeks back. Idk how close it is to finished though
TAndy 11:33:22 AM
Can't wait to see how that looks, building a website must be dope
TAndy 11:36:31 AM
About to head out, thanks for the show Casey! That Yo La Tengo album is def getting a listen in the car
Casey (host) 11:48:00 AM
Have a good one! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday
