Anyway, my favorite Daft Punk song:

Discovery is a landmark album and I like the earlier stuff even better, there was great techno around already but these guys helped drive into where it is today in terms of generally appealing vs 4am in club getting so happy I'm angry time (one of my favorite places to be ever fwiw). I bought the album on the champs-ellyses on a trip with my then gf now wife and we scored some hash and played it in our hotel overlooking the Seine. Total Francophile moment. We also bought Air Moon Safari. Cest bien.

My paper is about using music as a historical source and the impact music had on youth culture.
Arguably four of the groups who most represent the disillusionment ever before and since present between children (teenagers) and their parents and the world they've been forced to join and do not want a part of perpetuating; the Brit bands in late 50s/early 60s response to the classist post industrial post war UK where little opportunity was offered amidst the demand for loyalty to an outdated system and the US bands in the late 60s response to failure of the post WW2 American dream mindset and of course the Vietnam war. The general message: don't tell me what to do and your plan sucks, open your mind and be free and find love and sex and drugs and things that help you tap into the truer meanings of existence.

Get off of my cloud won't get fooled again dont you want somebody to love light my fire baby.

Beatles did all four.

If that's the cause, should be a cheap part.

Except it's a Benz, so probably over $100, lol.

I don't know what you're on about. Apart from the wheels, I like it.

Hardest of hardasses without ever lifting a finger to fight. Faith, forgiveness, force of will, love of fellow man. All harder than firing bullets. Dude couldn't be broken. Had a heart made of tempered steel.

(Sorry if I'm misinterpreting but I had a Lithuanian neighbor who was a tremendous person and his entire family was murdered in Russian takeover. He only survived while playing dead while soldiers walked around and emptied rifles into his brothers and sisters who were moaning their death sounds. He was like 6 and moved here and taught kids to play piano for like 50 years and was such a devout Catholic he had seen fit to forgive and move on vs seek revenge or hold contempt, he even donated $$$ to Russian orphanages after the Wall fell. This man was stronger and more kind than most could imagine, and yes, he had a mint 2002 sedan that he worked on himself until the day he died).

Everything you ever need to know about the failure of communism is expressed in Plato's Republic written 1000s of years before CCCP. Despite all the good intentions in the world, our inner nature as dictated by survival of the fittest is to want to rise to the top of the food chain. In contemporary culture this is largely manifested via the collection of material wealth since we're no longer allowed to hunt, kill and eat eachother, as our ancestors surely did.
Oh, I agree. I was trying to get Nick to respond to me.

Discovery is an amazing album. I can't say that I like the path that electric music has taken, though.

Dunno, the guy was just having fun making carbon fiber panels for the most part. Started with just simple stuff, and moved to larger and more complex pieces. He did a nice DIY style write up of how he did everything, which was in his backyard and garage.
