I’m still anti-streaming. I like to own my music (even if it’s digital). This hasn’t been a problem…. until now.
I heard good things about a rapper called ‘Noname’. So, I went to iTunes to check her out. iTunes doesn’t have anything for sale (or for preview in their store) from a female rapper named Noname. They have some other stuff by other people/bands with that name. Odd? You can stream her stuff from Apple Music, though. You can stream it from SoundCloud. You can stream it from Amazon. But you can’t buy it on any of them. You can stream it from her own website, or you can buy her latest record on vinyl for $30.
I don’t understand.
But, you can stream and buy it on Bandcamp.
I really don’t understand.
SAN FRANCISCO — A startup in San Francisco is trying to make an aged whiskey that’s never seen the inside of a barrel and can be produced in about 24 hours.
The first bottles of the result — a product called Glyph, billed as the world’s first molecular whiskey — recently hit shelves, retailing for around $35 each.
Endless West, which manufactures Glyph, begins the process by studying existing popular aged whiskeys at the molecular level, to understand and map the flavor profiles. Endless West then builds Glyph from scratch by adding a plethora of different chemicals to medical-grade alcohol. The entire process is completed overnight.
Don’t skimp on the 5-Butyl-4-methyloxolan-2-one !

NPR goes macabre:
When heated under proper conditions, turkey droppings transform into a form of coal, and serve as a renewable resource. Just think: Someday you might roast your holiday turkey using its own excrement.
[That’s the story teaser on their front page. The actual story doesn’t have that text.]
The Ben-Gurion team isn’t swayed by the yuck factor, though. Their ultimate goal is to try to roast a bird with their homemade hydrochar, and eat if afterwards. “I really hope it’s tasty,” Gross says — and there is a reason to believe so.
Once made, the hydrochar doesn’t emit any stink — it even has a pleasant aroma! “It smells of coffee,” says Mau. “So it would be interesting to see if it the meat roasted on it will also have coffee flavor.”
