The Video For Nero’s Two Minds Is Like A Lost ‘80s Cyberpunk Flick

Posted by in category: entertainment

The video for Two Minds, the latest single from British electronic trio NERO looks just like it’s a lost cyberpunk film from the 1980s. It’s got that early digital look to it, and the story that plays out wouldn’t be out of place on a stack of forgotten VHS tapes.

The video single, which is on the band’s upcoming album, Between II Worlds, follows a being made of static who can jump into televisions. Like any good ‘80s movie, its pursued by a bunch of grim looking men in trench coats who are deadset on taking it down, for … reasons. Throw in a hapless hero who gets caught in the middle, and you’ve got the perfect science fiction adventure.

The song is pretty catchy, too. Between II Worlds is due out on August 28th.

What If Authors Were Paid Every Time Someone Turned a Page? — Peter Wayner | The Atlantic

Posted by in categories: business, entertainment

“The maker of the Kindle is going to flip the formula used for reimbursing some of the authors who depend on it for sales. Instead of paying these authors by the book, Amazon will soon start paying authors based on how many pages are read—not how many pages are downloaded, but how many pages are displayed on the screen long enough to be parsed.” Read More
