Technology and Its Discontents

The Spotify Effect

Music checks in, but it doesn’t check out

By Kyle Silfer [ Sun Apr 17 2016 9:00 AM ]
Who has made me a stranger to my iTunes music library? Spotify, it is you. Who has made it possible to summon full discographies of interrelated musical artists in a six-degrees-of-Kevin-Bacon hopscotch that I Just Can’t Stop Doing? It’s you again, Spotify.

Ode to grunge

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Thu Apr 11 2013 2:10 PM ]

Depending on your aural upbringing and age, the term "grunge" may conjure up wildly divergent things. Read all about Alibi Copy Editor/Staff Writer Mark Lopez's romance with the Seattle sound in Seattle Wall of Sound: A paean to grunge. For me, Nirvana's Bleach was revelatory; Lopez prefers In Utero. Exploring difference is fun, no? In honor of this myriad genre, I compiled an hour-long grunge-tastic playlist for our dear readers, featuring tracks by: Flipper, L7, Babes in Toyland, 7 Year Bitch, Hole, Nirvana, Mudhoney, Tad, Wool, Melvins, Sleep Capsule, Coffin Break, Soundgarden, Killdozer, Pixies, The Breeders and Green River. Stream it below. Less-than-fresh coiffures, well-worn flannel and Dr. Martens are optional.

Kinky is (Officially) Not a Diagnosis

The DSM Revision

By Julian Wolf [ Thu Feb 18 2010 5:10 PM ]

Getting an update in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a big deal, particularly when it's the type of update that officially means that what you do is no longer considered medically problematic. This happened in the 70s in regard to homosexuality, and earlier this month it's happened for kinky people.

Here's the article from the Center for Sex and Culture and here is the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom's release. Another victory for personal freedom? Something to celebrate.
