I am gutted.

35 years + since I heard Rubycon for the first time and Edgar's music, both solo and with the Dream, has been part of my life.

RIP Edgar.

Even though his later music didn't touch me as much, his early work had a profound effect on me and changed my life forever. He will be missed.

Wow, sad news. Edgar Froese has just passed away, according to a post on Facebook by his son Jerome.
The best approach is to be polite, smile and ask her why she hadn't replied to your last email, but before she has chance to answer say " I was worried that I had made you feel uneasy or something, which was not my intention" That is how I would handle it. The worse thing to do is for you to avoid her because that looks like, well; you are avoiding her :-)
A female coworker and I had been getting more personal and friendly recently after 6 years of simply cordial greeting and sporadic smalltalk.  Recently she asked me to help her lose weight because she noticed I had really slimmed down.  I was flattered and really wanted to share my knowledge and what worked for me.  I suggested meeting at Starbucks after work for privacy and curbing nosy coworkers.  I had copies of some great material to give her and planned to help her write out a program she could use to start losing weight.  She said sure, thanks for being willing to help me...but she said she was too busy that week and could we do it the next week.  I emailed asking if she worked the following Friday as it would be a good day for me. 

I never got a reply and she acts like it never happened.  (She did receive and read the email.). No mention of it.  Really pissed me off because I had already invested time in this, gave her a protein drink and a few helpful tips. I think it's really rude not to respond at all and suddenly drop it.  My theory is she thought I had romantic ulterior motives, especially since her female coworker buddies are very catty and gossipy and maybe they gave her this idea.  Or she got cold feet attempting to diet. Who knows.  But it's made it weird for me because I feel she ignored me and was inconsiderate.  So I've been avoiding her and keeping conversations to a minimum.   How would you handle this?

Amen to The Chameleons!!  Been listening to remastered Peel Sessions and using the nifty free key chain that came with it.  The vox tour is not until the fall.  I hope their album is finally released because I think the band will just end up being a nostalgic trip ad infinitum.  Mark must have some more good songs to unleash.

- Alio Die / Montana :: holographic codex
Love the first track, less keen on the others though.
- Loscil :: sea island
Improves with each listen. Excellent.
- Porya Hatamai :: the garden
Liking this delicate glichy sound quite a lot.
- Been picking up a few 12K Bandcamp releases and enjoying them too.
Isn't Bandcamp great !

Steve Roach - The Magnificent Void
This album was a life-changing purchase for me in the 90s and I often return to it for inspiration (Infinite Shore and Altus are some of my favorite tracks in the genre). But I rarely find the time to listen to it from start to finish, in one listening. I did so this past weekend and it was a religious experience. I know some people consider this album to be over-hyped; I'm not one of those people.

I agree - been a while since I listened to this but it is a magnificent album.

Abandoned Communities

This Databloem CD has been on constant play for the past week. Excellent, dark, melancholic ambient.
