New Oneohtrix Point Never album, R Plus Seven, is coming out at the end of the month:
I haven't been this excited in a while. All the art goes together so perfectly. If you're interested, you can preorder it for CD or vinyl here:
On another issue, last night I dreamt that a partner (who I do not remember) and I were thugs in an alternate timeline of the Dark Ages in which some strange reptilian alien race has not only settled Earth, but also integrated itself into human society and learned to peacefully coexist with humans, benefitting the Medieval civilization with the technology of their advanced species while also fusing it with the culture of the age.
We made a living from being hired criminals, robbing and murdering certain high-profile citizens of the land. The job my dream focused on involved sneaking into a large prison by drinking a complex chemical mixture that disguised us as the aliens, doing something I don't quite remember to a prisoner, and jumping out a window, through the courtyard, and safely out the gates before the guards could kill us.
I somehow ended up in a castle of a corrupt monarch, in which my cat and two of his siblings also lived. I forgot exactly what happened, but some sort of fight occurred and at the very end of the dream my cat ended up dead. When I woke up I forgot that he was still alive, and it took unusually long for me to realize that what had happened was a dream.
I may have had that dream because I've been thinking about how strange it must have been to be at the beginning of the Dark Ages, and losing so much technology to war.
