Memorex Memories

Memorex Memories is a new segment where Impact staffers rediscover their own mix CDs from childhood, pre-teen, and teen years.

If you grew up in the early years of the new millenia you may remember a couple of things that were hip at the time; boys wearing girl skinny jeans, Hollister or American Eagle apparel, eyeliner for guys (guyliner), dial-up internet, Runescape (#NeverForget), etc. Being the white, middle class boy I was in rural west Michigan dealing with puberty, I thought I should be sad about things and listened to music that spoke to the dark depression I pretended to have. I made a plethora of mix CDs until playlists were a thing, surprisingly the magnum opus of my faux-emo phase survived, outside of a museum where it belongs, and here it is for your viewing and listening pleasure.

Track 1 – On My Own by The Used from The Used
Welp. So we’re starting strong in the pop/punk emo pit that was my adolescence and preteen era. I still own a shirt of theirs since seventh grade and wear it on occasion. I like to wear it to bars and describe the cause behind each tear stain littered across the chest.

together PANGEA – Offer

Together PANGEA know how to have a good time AND they make some killer music, which is why we chose them for our Jam of the Day. If you like what you hear, you can pick up the Los Angeles garage rockers album Badillac at a record store near you.

Bleached – Love Spells

Don’t you hate when you’re having band practice in the cemetery, and accidentally raise the dead? Man, me too but Bleached make it look like a lot of fun in their video for “Love Spells.” Their debut LP, Ride Your Heart is out now on Dead Oceans.

Russia President Vladimir Putin to annex Crimea, Black Sea Peninsula

Russia President Vladimir Putin approved a draft bill that would annex the Black Sea Peninsula, bringing Crimea into the Russian Federation. This happened after an estimated 97 percent of Crimea voters supported a referendum for a union to Russia. While that number has questionable validity, the US and Europe don’t recognize the vote, saying that it was illegal. To fully understand the situation and its potential impacts, Exposure Host Abbie Newton invited Assistant Professor of the Department of History Matthew Pauly into the studio.
