“Consistently the most enthusiastic feedback I get about any of the mixes I’ve done is for my chill series. Initially I thought I would release one and call it a day. But thanks in part to hearing about people falling in love, getting down and dirty, winding down after a big night out, waking up to it or using as background for their parties I keep seeking out more tunes and ways to evolve this series and still fit together. Volume 4 brings in some beach and indie sounds. Part 1 (which you can find on Deckard’s SoundCloud page in the coming weeks) is the more chill of the two. Part 2 brings a little more energy to the proceedings. I hope you and enjoy and please keep the stories coming.” - Deckard

Edward Snowden, a former CIA employee working as a contractor at the U.S. National Security Agency, leaked details of a top secret U.S. surveillance program, acting out of conscience to protect “liberties for people around the world.”
Both the Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper - to whom he gave the documents he had purloined - published Snowden’s identity on Sunday after he sought to be identified.
“I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things … I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded. That is not something I am willing to support or live under,” he told the Guardian, which published a video interview with him on its website.
“The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife’s phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards,” Snowdown said.
The Guardian published revelations last week that U.S. security services had monitored data about phone calls from Verizon and Internet data from large companies such as Google and Facebook.

Matthew Picton’s Paper Map Sculptures - “Matthew Picton is a british-born artist living in oregon, USA. his work is influenced by cartography and the inherent beauty of lines and forms that arise from natural topography and built environments. his series of ‘city sculptures’ look at the organism of the city as an entity which has been shaped by social, political, economic and topographic factors, illustrating a systemic pattern of human civilization. he explores roads at the micro level, tracing miniature byways in cracked sidewalks and alleys.”
Saw Picton’s show at Toomey-Turrell, 49 Geary, San Francisco this evening. His work is very delicate.
