Somehow I managed to schedule two posts for yesterday. At this point Ren would yell at Stimpy 'Stimpy, you eediot!!'.
Pulling something out from my hard drive for Friday, the end of a long week at work, leads me to Scandi-disco, one of my sounds of now. This was from Lindstrom back in 2017, a drum machine led piece that brings the synths in gradually and ends up with something that keeps on rising and ends dramatically. Brought up in Stavanger, Norway and raised on country and western Lindstrom moved to Oslo and practically started the whole Scandi-house scene off back in the early 2000s.
Ren and Stimpy were a TV cartoon in the early 90s, a short tempered, emotionally unstable Chihuahua (Ren) and a good natured but dim cat (Stimpy). A cartoon for adults with innuendo, violence, darkness and trippy absurdity. It was rather good.
