OG Barcodes Accused of Rape

Japanese company Design Barcode has taken a militant stance on the aesthetic value of our old school barcodes.

They say:
"Unsightly barcodes have been raping the beauty of package design long enough. That’s why we came up with a way to give barcodes a fun and beautiful makeover, while keeping its functional utility intact. We christened this new type of barcode the "Design Barcode" and pitched it to various manufacturers throughout Japan. As a result, many companies adopted it into their package design, and we helped to turn barcodes into a new channel for companies to communicate to their consumers."

Tinariwen!

So for the past couple weeks I been bumpin this CD, Ammasakoul by Touareg group Tinariwen. I done played it out, so now it’s your turn. Peep the song for a little taste.

AAtinariwen_color_300dpi_9x6[1].jpg

From their page on Calabash Music:

"Tinariwen is a Touareg group from the southern Sahara whose music is close to the blues of Ali Farka Toure. The band’s name means "empty places" which certainly reflects their desert homeland…
Radicalized by war and drought, Tinariwen invented a new style of music known as Tishoumaren, or music of the ishumar. Ishumar, which means unemployed, refers to a generation of young, enraged Tamashek exiles: people who left their stomping grounds for work after much repression and drought in Mali. Tinariwen wanted to carry on traditional music, but in exile they could rarely find the 30 or more musicians necessary to play the style. They have combined traditional musical forms with a modern rebellious and radical rock sensibility — traditional instruments such as the teherdent lute and shepherd flute were discarded in favor of the electric guitar, electric bass and drums.

Their Music is loosely based on traditional Touareg music and the harsh melodies of the one-stringed Touareg violin, but also incorporates influences such as Bob Marley together with the other disparate influences, both western and middle eastern, which managed to penetrate that far into the desert."
