The first trailer for Wonder Woman 1984 came out recently and it features an orchestral cover of Blue Monday by New Order. Here’s that cover:
This kicked off a search for other covers of Blue Monday. Here’s a crazy one using instruments from the 1930s:
Here’s Orgy’s cover from a while ago
And finally, here’s the original for comparison:
And the search for orchestral covers of 80’s synth songs continues…
This isn’t something I thought I’d ever see. Pretty sweet.
I’m a bit late to this party, but the fine folks over at iA released some very interesting variable fonts. I’ve always liked using their writer; I think I’ll give these a shot in my code editor.
The carajillo at Cicatriz is certainly (and by far) the best I’ve tasted, but it is not, I’ll admit, the one I crave. Because my platonic carajillo is not, by any rational standard, a good drink. It’s cloying and unbalanced and, as Patan pointed out, both utilitarian and over-the-top. It’s irresistibly fusty, the sort of thing my Manischewitz-swilling, Irish-Catholic great-grandmother would have loved. It’s served, as it was the first time I drank it at the classic Cantina Mirador de Chapultepec (a favorite among the city’s famously corrupt politicans), in an oversized brandy snifter under the gracious eye of a bow-tied bartender, elbow-to-elbow with people who couldn’t possibly care less whether it’s actually “good” or not.
It’s a drink that makes you say carajo—fuck it.
