From the Mothership:
"How would you go about introducing humanity to anyone and everyone in the universe? That was the curatorial challenge facing NASA’s best in the 1970s as they prepared to launch the Voyager One probe in 1977. They decided to include the Voyager Golden Record as part of the intergalactic calling card—it featured twenty-seven seminal songs, including Blind Willie Johnson’s 1927 recording, “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground.”

The project managers made an excellent choice; John’s lament about sorrow, pain, and loneliness, pain is timeless. That’s what makes it a great selection: Voyager 1 won’t be within 1.6 light years of AC+79 3888 until some 40,000 years from now. Between now and then, you can always listen to it at the Internet Archive."


welcome to the Netlabel Archive

Last week, i accidentally bumped into a rather new initiative that wants to archive lost netlabel releases; you can also submit or ask for lost releases:
from their website:
"Ever since the existence of digital music, there have been netlabels. Unfortunately, some netlabels don’t last long. Things happen, netlabels disappear, and the music has been wiped from the internet.
This birthed the idea of the Netlabel Archive; a website dedicated to preserving inactive netlabels that no longer have a home online."
