  1. A Conversation with Jason Kottke

    Jason Kottke started in 1998, making it one of the oldest, still maintained blogs on the web with over 26,000 posts spanning topics from art and technology to design, culture, and general knowledge. This is a peek behind the scenes of Jason’s process, his philosophies, and general thoughts on the internet––where it’s been, and maybe where it’s going. We talked about what running the blog looks like now, how it’s changed over the years. The evolution of patronage models, and his current thoughts on them. We talked a bit about burn out and managing that tension between what you really want to do versus what may appear to be the path of success online. And about the increasingly challenging task of maintaining ownership over what you create online. We also compared and contrasted our experiences as an OG blogger versus an OG vlogger, and how terrible both of those words are.

  4. Frosty w/ guest John Shepherd — Celsius Drop: Project S.T.R.A.T. Special (08.20.20)

    On his weekly Celsius Drop show, dublab co-founder Frosty guides you through an exploration of the vast Future Roots music spectrum.

    John Shepherd had a special mission in life: to make contact with aliens. Over the course of thirty years John transformed his grandparents’ home in rural Michigan into an incredible laboratory from which he broadcast experimental music millions of miles into space. Matthew Kilip’s mesmerizing film, John Was Trying to Contact Aliens charts the rise and fall of this one man SETI project, before opening up into a broader story about the human need for connection.

    On this special Celsius Drop episode, John Shepherd joined Frosty to talk about his deep space focused music transmissions and share some archival Project S.T.R.A.T. broadcasts. John Was Trying to Contact Aliens is available to stream as of today on Netflix.

    He discusses the reasons for his enforced absence from music of ten years – including issues with his father and the Australian iteration of the ATP Festival – plus reveals his love for The Avalanches, Woods (who he made the new record with), and the great American songbook.
