Early devotees included John Joseph and Harley Flanagan of the band Cro-Mags, Ray Cappo of Youth Of Today, and Vic DiCara, former guitarist for Los Angeles band Inside Out, who established quite possibly the most famous of all of the newly dubbed “Krishnacore” bands, 108. Krishnacore bands sang about Krishna and Krishna Consciousness the same way that a Christian band would sing about Jesus. Notable Hare Krishna punk and hardcore musicians have included: Shelter, Cro-Mags, Youth of Today, 108, Run Devil Run, Request Denied, Poly Styrene, and Lora Logic of X-ray Spex.
"The question comes up from time to time, who’s the greatest hacker ever? Well, there’s a lot of different opinions on this. Some say Steve Wozniak of Apple II fame. Maybe Andy Hertzfeld of the Mac operating system…Richard Stallman, say others, of MIT. Yet at such times when I mention who I think the greatest hacker is, everyone agrees (provided they know of him), and there’s no further argument. So, let me introduce you to him, and his greatest hack. I’ll warn you right up front that it’s mind numbing. By the way, everything I’m going to tell you is true and verifiable down at your local library. Don’t worry; we’re not heading off into a Shirley MacLaine UFO-land story. Just some classy electrical engineering…"
"Created totally with NewTek’s LightWave 3D modelling and rendering software and NewTek Video Toasters on Amiga computers, Todd released this video in the early 1990s, in support of what was pretty much the only "hit" single off his album "Second Wind."… This video was a monumental achievement in 3D animation for its time in the early 1990s and it was done COMPLETELY on affordable, personal computers. Todd actually used a stack of ten Amigas (because it would have taken forever to render this many frames of 3D animation on a single machine).. and was sneakernetting SCSI hard drives between them since Commodore, Amiga’s maker, would not provide him with networking hardware to make the rendering of the thousands of frames in this video easier. He did most of the 3D object modelling and animation scene plotting himself. So he’s not just a singer / songwriter, but a VERY talented artist and computer wizard too. He originally intended the video to be 100% 3D rendering but Warner Bros. insisted that he appear in it, so he filmed himself in front of a black backdrop and then overlayed the film of him singing the song onto various 3D objects in the final rendering"
