    Kidkanevil is a fucking remix King Midas. There is nothing he touches that doesn’t turn to gold.

      @zei JavaScript is stupid and awesome simultaneously. Knowing which bits are stupid and to avoid — that’s the difference between loving and hating it.

        @hazardwarning Even watching something set in Glasgow (glaahsgih!) I was content to switch the subs off. @matigo @rabryst

          @hazardwarning As an Australian, I’ve never had issues understanding various English accents - I put it down to exposure. We get a lot of UK and American TV here, and our accents are similar-ish to those of South Africa and New Zealand. @matigo @rabryst

            @matigo Haha! The CDN is only 1% of the problem. The rest is encoding, listening experience, and community. I’d be happy to partner with you on this if you care about it! :)

              @matigo That’s what I was doing with sonogr.af. But then I got distracted and busy. I wish I had your patience!

                @matigo Nope, the shit sound is for big names and nobodies alike. :’(

                  @matigo I’m also speaking of my own music. I want to deliver it with greater fidelity than soundcloud allows — and this is despite me paying them not insignificant sums.

                    @matigo The record labels and artists put their own music up there for listening! It’s not stealing if they endorse it. :) (As a side note, I have quite literally thousands of physical CDs. I needed an entire truck trip to move them back in January.)

                      @matigo Where audio quality sits on a spectrum between ‘unlistenably awful’ and ‘unappreciably perfect’, yes — it could be worse. It could also be vastly better.

                        I don’t know how many times I’ve winged about this before, but SoundCloud’s audio quality is _awful_.

                              @annatarkov I’m sure there’s a way to make it tax deductible, right? :) A speaking engagement? @nguarracino @discoveradn

                                @annatarkov You could always swap with me and come to Australia! @nguarracino @discoveradn

                                  @chriskrycho Well since @matigo’s podcast is about discovering new people, I would’ve been a bit disappointed if you’d just endorsed me again! :)

                                    The juxtaposition of the happy little images and the soul-crushing dialogue really just nails the existential dread. http://timeisaflatcircus.tumblr.com/
