Ode to Soulseek

Today i just realized that 10 years have passed since i found Soulseek, for anyone that doesn’t know Soulseek (slsk) is a filesharing software/client mainly used for sharing music.

Back in the day the most famous filesharing client (and this is long before “torrent” was even invented) was Kazza used mainly for…porn of course, speeds where very low and connection to the internet was expensive so you had to think twice over which movie to download. Trying to get music was a pain in the ass, Kazza’s search engine would give you results over the exact name of the songs you search so downloading a full album would be difficult. Chances where that the user would sing out and you would have to edit the names of the songs afterwards to look like an album because every file was spelled differently. I also have to mention the huge amount of bogus files, songs like “Korn feat. Slipknot feat. Limp Biskit feat. The Cure feat. A Perfect Circle feat. Orgy feat. DMX feat. Crystal Method – Hey Man Nice Shot” where all over the place. Suddenly Placebo “was” playing Where Is My Mind (by the Pixies, to this day i still meat people who want to murder me because i claim that it’s not their song) Junkie XL was Prodigy and Donnie Darko was a porn movie made in France.

When i say the speeds where low i mean LOW. Think about 4 kbps being the highest speed. I remember downloading Tricky’s Vulnerable in 8 hours (all night long download) and i had the luck to really have all the songs (as i said users could sing off) Also in 2 days i took Donnie Darko (i still have the cd around somewhere) and even like this i was feeling that no piece of information can get pass me. This until i came to a point where Kazza could not find rare stuff like Omikron The Nomad Soul (game scored by Bowie), Divi-Dead (a japanese bishoujo-horror game) Outcast (game) or Tokyo Decadence (japanese film) and so i found E-Donkey, a clone of Kazza but with a more apple-ish look way more sophisticated but utterly empty. Still i could find what i was looking for even if a had to wait 2 weeks until i could have Outcast for example. All good but music was still hard to find until a friend told me “Dude check out this client, it’s called Soulseek and it’s mainly for music” i was like “WAAATH?! i need to rush home”

So 10 years (aprox) have passed. Torrents revolutionized sharing and the main source for music is straight in your browser (hopefully you don’t use IE) through many blogs but still from time to time i remember an album, a most obscure album and Slsk delivers. 10 years after i realize not just that slsk is still alive and kicking but at the same time is the most efficient time travel machine invented by man.

Cheers Slsk


briefing 6.0 “long live the new flesh”

we are approaching the end of 2009; i’m turning into a vampire having in mind that i almost always miss the light of day; 2012 is out and selling and i’m starting to work on a short spin of from my chapter in 2012 and a new longer neo-noir comic book set in the summer of 1942 in arad.


today especially things seem a little wierd on this side of the terminal: before i could realize shit about today the sun was allready gone and that little funny thing i like to check out from time to time is insanely poetic hahaha:


taurus: Your life is like an empty book that other people write in. The ones you choose, allow, or force their way into your life are the characters that make up a part of who you are. By knowing that and the characters of the Zodiac sign you were born under, you can determine a lot about yourself.

and for that i thank you captain obvious.

even the horoscope is mad:

Industrial Taurus, you should have seen the third sign today, think about immediately abandoning ship. If you remain you risk being sucked into the vortex of tomorrow. Run today to survive and play another day.

yeah, in the afterlife


briefing 1.0

Today you’ll find comfort in routine and habit, much to the despair of your friends. You’re in danger of getting into too much of a rut, though. You will need to branch out and take on new interests before life becomes too stale, so don’t settle for an evening in front of the TV!
