Anxiety Culture is a subversive magazine/website devoted to defusing the little nagging voice in the back of your head that seems to be getting louder and louder these days.
In their own words, they maintain a VAST, intoxicating mixture of outsider psychology, anti-work philosophy, satire, anti-establishment rants, spoof ads, DIY propaganda, subversive graphics and underground news. Plus "self improvement" articles for the distracted, bored, and cynical.
Posted a similar article on Politics Of Apathy.
Over at coinopvideogames.com, they now have several pages of recordings that the host and his friend made in arcades with a portable cassette recorder. Not only do you get the arcade sounds themselves, but that impossible to replicate ambience of an early 80s arcade. One (read, me) might foll around and isolate the background noise and use it for a "live" track... would be classier than some boring old public domain crowd noise sample.
Thanx to Monica McCoy for recommending the site!
