As 2012 comes to an end, we are taking a look back at some of our favorite posts of the year by our guest editors.
Jason Miles has been around for a long time, programming synths for and jamming with the likes of Miles Davis and Luther Vandross, let alone producing other side projects over the years. DJ Logic has been around, too, working with ?uestlove, Vernon Reid, Marcus Miller and many more. The two have been through a lot together, traveling the world from Japan to Marrakech before finally releasing the first Global Noize album in 2008, later joined permanently by Indian vocalist Falu on their latest, A Prayer For The Planet (Lightyear/EMI). Global Noize will be guest editing magnetmagazine.com all week. Read our brand new Q&A with Logic and Miles.
Miles: I remember seeing the initial HBO show Curb Your Enthusiasm and loving it. It then started as a series, and slowly we were introduced to this guy Larry David. He made tons of mistakes and got lots of people pissed at him all the time. He created this world of Larry. All of a sudden people are talking about him. The word spread and soon so many people I know after eight years know every episode and anecdote. I am in the supermarket and find a person with more than 12 items in the express line—I feel like it’s a Larry David moment and a few times I’ve said something. Larry is fearless and doesn’t care what people think. The smaller his world is the better. It also helps to be worth a few hundred million from being the co-creator of Seinfeld. Best Curb episodes: “The Ski Lift,” “The Car Pool Lane” and “Palestinian Chicken.” Viva Larry David.
