The Moog Werkstatt-01 can be found for $200 or less. Introduced in 2014, it comes disassembled as a kit that just requires a screwdriver for assembly. The components pretty much just snap into the board without soldering. It is a patchable analog synth that can be sonically modified with jumper cables, a CV Expander, even an Arduino microprocessor. Small round buttons on the bottom row of the device act as a keyboard.
Upon initial listen, you may ask what Beatles song is this. Also hailing from Liverpool, The Searchers were champions of the Merseybeat sound in the sixties. They had a Kevin Bacon-esque relationship with the Beatles when one of the drummers replaced Ringo in one of his previous bands. They named themselves after a 1956 John Wayne western.
You are beautiful
You are everything
You are important

Heard this on an old episode of Walking Dead (season 4 ep 4 “Indifference”) and was moved by the music and lyrics.
Bouncing a track back and forth. Came up with this so far….
I discovered two songs that took my down the rabbit hole of music discovery and exploration. I just started watching Black Mirror. Episode 2 features a song called “Anyone Who Knows What Love Is” by Irma Thomas.
The end credits of Aziz Ansari Live At Madison Square Garden features “Hippie Hippie Hourrah” by Jacques Dutronic. He was married to Francoise Hardy. I added him to my short list of French pop music ( which only includes Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot).

X-Ray machines are obtrusive in size, sound and in what they reveal. Used mostly in medical and security environments, they provide a glimpse into what is normally covered by human and non-human exoskeleton. Nick Veasay’s photo book, X-Ray is packed full of photographs of objects scanned under these large, dangerous mechanisms. Seeing the complex structure of plants, lightbulbs and other ordinary objects makes the viewer aware of what details can be observed by security scanners and x-ray machines.
