more are here.

LCD Soundsystem are my favorite.

They heavily influence my songwriting and production style.

They have some new shit just around the corner and I, for one, am VERY excited!

clip 1 from lcd soundsystem on Vimeo.

Also when I was living in Los Angeles, I recorded an album for a band that rented out a mansion (that was usually used for shooting porn) to record in. It was awesome and I totally agree with James Murphy about recording where you live. It is the way to go.

Say What!? Poster

Shameless and OFS are starting a new 18+ dance night. That's right, kiddies, it's time for you to have fun again! Expect this night to jump off so tell everyone in high school. First night they got Mash Hall & Sap'n.

Tonight! Helladope Fund Raiser

Down at the Rendezvous tonight. I'll be DJing and rapping and dancing with Katie Kate all in the name of goodness for Helladope.

Garage Voice - Freeze and Thaw - live video

I have known the gents from Garage Voice since I was in seventh grade. We all went to school together in Berrien Springs, Michigan. Now, as fate would have it, they live in Seattle only a few miles from me.

I really dig their new album "Freeze and Thaw". It has been on heavy rotation since they gave me the vinyl a few weeks ago.

This is a video of a live performance in california of "Freeze & Thaw" and "Trust, Love, Suffer." the double track opener from their new EP .

Lou Pal - Zombie Girl

Ninja Love

This is pretty much how it always goes for me too.

"much like a garment that can be worn collectively by 180 people"


In an amazing response to the Guggenheim Museum'sContemplating the Void call-for-ideas, architect Minsuk Cho has proposed Art Trap.

Explaining their approach, the architects write that "the Guggenheim has become, in a sense, a victim of its own success due to an over-saturation of human movement in a singular space. Our proposal aims to accomplish the seemingly incompatible: to restore a museum environment conducive to experiencing art and to maximize and heighten other experiences brought about by the iconic status of the museum itself."

The specific strategy here is "to trap, i.e., to force a pause. This programmatic component was not considered by Wright, who envisioned a space defined by tireless motion."

"The resulting project is a gigantic membrane stretched throughout the interior, supplying "180 saddle-like seats along the entire ramp for pausing and viewing the rotunda."
    "These seats protrude into the void with access ladders arranged in between the floor and the ceiling over the guardrails. Each of the 90 access ladders holds two cantilevering seats, which are angled gradually as they ascend to allow a view of the central area at ground level that functions almost like a stage—as though the rotunda were a new hybrid of opera house and arena. The 180 protrusions over the void are draped with a single, soft and translucent membrane that functions as a safety net."

This is amazing!
