Anonymous asked: Any albums you can recommend listening to for reading Neuromancer? Cause I listened to the Mirror's Edge soundtrack while reading Snow Crash and it worked really well. I gave the Akira soundtrack a try but by the fifth track it gets really trippy and wets the experience a little. thanks
No shit, at this exact moment, I’m writing notes about what I’d put in an adaptation of “Virtual Light,” and the last note I made was about The Dead Kennedys “California Über Alles.”
For Neuromancer, my main soundtracks were The Prodigy’s “Music For The Jilted Generation” and Future Sound Of London’s “ISDN” and “Dead Cities.” I’m actually listening to the latter as I’m typing this. Tangerine Dream’s “Exit” sets a different tone but it’s way ethereal and atmospheric.
An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), or drone, made by the French company Fly-n-Sense, flies over Mont-de-Marsan, France, on July 12, 2012. French firefighters were testing it in the Landes forest region as an innovative forest surveillance system which will enable a real-time monitoring of fire outbreaks.
