Andrew Kim of Minimally Minimal takes a look back at the original Sony Walkman.
That’s not to say that the TPS-L2 pocketable though. It’s too tight of a squeeze in a pants pocket though it could fit in a loose jacket pocket. To solve the portability issue, Sony included a case that let you strap it to your waist. What started out as a necessity eventually became a marketable, fashionable image that Sony used to attract more buyers. You want to be trendy and culturally relevant? Go buy a Walkman.

The guitarist for As I Lay Dying, Phil Sgrosso, has posted a response to the post released on the band's website earlier today.
This morning an update was posted over at www.asilaydying.com on the current happenings and individual futures of all the bands' members. For Jordan, Josh, Nick, Phil, management, and record label, this was an interesting first time read as all parties were oblivious to its construction, intent, and release.

Though Tim is the only one with access to the As I Lay Dying site, the rest of us have been releasing content through our personal social media accounts to reveal that we are carrying on in a new band. Our truest intentions were to make this unveiling...

An Aphex Twin album from 1994, titled Caustic Window, that never saw official release cropped up on Discogs recently, with a seller asking for more than $13,000 for their test press. After negotiations between Rephlex Records and the seller, it appears that a complicated deal to distribute 500 downloads via Kickstarter for about $16 has been established, with the physical copy being sold on eBay after the completion of the campaign. The last album of entirely new music from Aphex Twin was released in 2001.

As I Lay Dying have released a lengthy statement about their current situation. While the future of the band remains uncertain, the remaining members are moving forward with a new project fronted by Oh, Sleeper guitarist Shane Blay. New material from vocalist Tim Lambesis will also be surfacing in the near future.
There have been a lot of questions from fans over the past year and we'll hopefully be able to provide more answers over time. However, this update is only to address things related to AILD's future.

Originally, we said we'd update fans as soon as we knew more. We apologize for not sticking to that. It seemed best to wait until definitive news came in with a specific timeline....
