In the eighteenth century it was often convenient to regard man as a clockwork automaton. In the nineteenth century, with Newtonian physics pretty well well assimilated and a lot of thermodynamics going on, man was looked on more as a heat-engine, about 40 per cent efficient. Now in the twentieth century, with nuclear and subatomic physics a going thing, man had become able to absorb X-rays, gamma rays and neutrons.

I guess I could be considered a mega Actress fanboi as I’ve been fucking with dude since No Tricks and listening to Hazyville when it came back was like having my own dreams of Detroit techno played back via the Black Atlantic’s infinite throughlines.

As Octo put it when he sent me this gem of a pop jam, ‘this is the best 80s JPop tune, although it was actually made/released in the 00s.’ Time doesn’t always move according to its label, huh?
