Oneohtrix Point Never's synths are probably going to take over the world

Hearing Daniel Lopatin talk so anthropomorphically about his musical setup kind of makes you think that they might one day actually gain sentience and take over. Until then, though, we get the spaced-out and soothing synth sounds of Oneohtrix Point Never. This interview that did with Lopatin is pretty cool, he talks about his equipment, there’s a little live footage from his performance at Coco66, and we basically just get some insight into him nerding out about sounds and mechanical doodads. Going back and listening to Returnal after this, you get a better sense of how he constructed these dense soundscapes Neat!

Last Minute Black Friday To-Do: Free Bowling

How much do you love bowling? Enough to fight off all the other Thanksgiving orphans left in Brooklyn to get a free lane? If so, head on over to Brooklyn Bowl today from 2-3pm where they’ll be offering free bowling. Shoes not included.

Black Friday to-do: Indoor Adventure Land, With Zip Line

Not interested in joining the teaming masses as they fight each other for $5 a blu-ray player? Not to worry! The folks behind Swimming Cities, the artist collective involved with Brooklyn street-artist Swoon, are holding a huge Black Friday party in, what they deem, a “12,000-square-foot indoor adventureland.”

They’ll have Zip lines, hot dog skeet shooting, a heated pool, non-conventional exercise machines, croquet, ping pong, badminton, dirty uncle pony rides, bike blender smoothies and maple/ bacon infused shots. You’re encouraged to dress “Hunter Casual,” but coming with thanksgiving leftovers in hand will get you a discount.

The Great indoors black friday party, with DJs Dirtyfinger (Blacklabel), $mall ¢hange (Rubulad), and Uproot Andy (Bulgarian Bar).

55 9th Street. bldg 61, Brooklyn.
F or G to Smith/9th St.

From Dreamin It Vegan:

3 whole bell peppers, cut in half and seeded

3 cups cooked brown rice

1 med. yellow onion, diced

1 cup corn, cooked

2 T. pine nuts

2 tsp. cumin

1 1/2 tsp. oregano

2 T. cilantro

1 package of vegan sausage crumbled

If using tofu I used firm and crumbled it and add following herbs: oregano, red pepper flakes, sage, garlic, fennel, caraway seeds, soy sauce, cumin, olive oil. and sauted until cooked through.



Preheat oven to 375. First saute sausage or tofu. Put into a bowl and set aside. In another pan saute onion & garlic in oil. Add corn and saute. Add pinenuts and saute for about min. Next add cumin and oregano for a couple more min. Add rice, sausage and cilantro to the pan a stir through.

Lay the halved bell peppers in a casserole dish. Fill up peppers. Top off with a Tablespoon or so of tofutti and salsa.

Pour hot water into the dish about 1/4 inch or more and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour until peppers are soft.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

David Wain reminded us on Twitter today that it is Thanksgiving and that means we can watch this classic Stella short.
