C60, the music site my friends Bob Burnett and Kim Kirkpatrick and I started in 2007 (Bob and Kim now do almost all the writing, since I'm so busy with TOP), now has music! Check out Bob's interesting and pretty 33-minute mix for today, "A Winter Morning." Both these guys are incredible dj's, and they're both really superb listeners. I'm sure there will soon be more.
UPDATE: Some people may have had problems accessing the stream; Bob used an older mix and thinks he might not have followed all the proper uploading protocols. It's a work in progress. You can check the site from the top to see if there are newer mixes. Sorry if you had trouble.
Featured Comment by Bahi: "Played it in the early hours of the morning and absolutely loved it. I'm a Stereolab fan anyway but it was good to hear that King Crimson track again (now there's something I never expected to write on this site) and be introduced to a couple of things I hadn't heard but which I really liked. I'll get around to creating an account and leaving a note at some point but Bob, if you read this, thanks!
"Playback was a little slow to begin ('analyzing' for a minute) so I minimised the browser window and just let it do its stuff and eventually the music kicked in through the headphones I'd forgotten I was wearing and made me jump. Worth it, though.
"In other news, I'd say you TOP folks were on a roll with recent articles but you seem to be on a permaroll these days. Long may it continue, and may you find effective protection from the Phantom Comment Italiciser (PCI). He has clearly upped his game :-)"
Mike responds: In re the PCI, there doesn't seem to be a rational way for me to integrate actually looking at the comments into my workflow. I read every one, check links, not infrequently edit or correct typos and misspellings, and sometimes contact the commenter to iron out a problem, small or large, and then post each one individually; but to go back into the posts from the site and check the way they appear to you more than once in a while would actually add a lot more work to what is already a pretty heavy load. The only alternative is to turn off HTML as an option in the comments. I've resisted that so far, but I might have to if the PCI problem continues. In the meantime, a plea: you have to use a backslash when closing HTML tags, and, if anybody sees the comments go all italics or all bold, shoot me a quick email, would you? I just don't see it. Thanks.
