Opened Wikipedia today and saw that the featured article is about The KLF, a leader in the British acid house music of the late 80's and early 90's. KLF is a fantastic story: a group of art student dropouts who created hit music for the sake of irony, made a bunch of money, and then burned more than $1,000,000 on a Scottish island just to make a coffee table book. As if that wasn't enough, they had the audacity to write a book called "The Manual" on how to make your own Brit chart topping hit, which mocked not only their own music, but also virtually every major electronic dance hit in the UK for the previous ten years. I love this story.

about me

I'm Blake. I like to learn stuff.

I like to learn about history, art, culture, sports, and politics. I like learning about what happens when you mix Diet Coke and Mentos. I like learning about Britney's latest flameup, Beckham's newest haircut, and how to make little origami gift boxes out a piece of 8.5x11.

I started this blog for me to have a place to write about the things that I've learned. I hope that you enjoy reading.
