Ananya Bhattacharya, writing for QZ:
Surprising fact: there’s a company still making video-cassette recorders, or VCRs. But that will change at the end of this month.
Japan’s Funai Electronics, which makes its own electronics, in addition to supplying companies like Sanyo, will produce the last batch of VCR units by July 30, Nikkei reported (link in Japanese). The company cites difficulty in obtaining the necessary parts as one of the reasons for halting production.
Tom DeLonge seems to be hinting at an acoustic version of Angels and Aiwaves’ We Don’t Need to Whisper.
Ezra Klein, writing for Vox, on the nomination of Donald Trump for President:
He has had plenty of time to prove me, and everyone else, wrong. But he hasn’t. He has not become more responsible or more sober, more decent or more generous, more considered or more informed, more careful or more kind. He has continued to retweet white supremacists, make racist comments, pick unnecessary fights, contradict himself on the stump, and show an almost gleeful disinterest in building a real campaign or learning about policy.
Here is what we know — truly know — about Trump. Here is why he should not be president.
It is downright terrifying that there’s even a chance this man could be President of the United States.

Two months ago, The Hotelier released their third album, Goodness. It touches on themes of Taoism and acceptance and it’s been something I’ve connected with a good deal during the end of my senior year of high school. Last week, on the tour to celebrate the release of the album, I had the opportunity to speak with the group’s lead singer/bassist/lyricist, Christian Holden. We discussed the writing process of Goodness, the band’s first music video(s), and anarchist theory.
With Confidence have released their new video for “Voldemort.”
