Fuck femcon

A little op-ed here. Y’all might wanna skip this if you drink the PC Kool-Aid. Found this little sign on the wall of the station I DJ at, urging DJs to play more “fem-con” [works by female artists] while also refraining from playing anything misogynistic, or if you’re going to play it, “discuss it”. Some […]

Some new charts etc.

Haven’t checked in to !earshot’s charts in a few weeks, and lo and behold I’ve been on them a couple times lately: A couple weeks ago on November 22, 2011 blood.black.haze was #4 on the electronic top ten and #29 on the top 30 at CFBX in Kamloops, BC. And this week’s charts aren’t fully […]

MoPho in action

Working on a new song called “Voodoo Doll” today – I’ve had the drums done for a while but it was time to start adding some meat onto the bones. Which is to say time to start putting my new MoPho to work. Here’s a little taste, just a fragment towards the end of the […]


Planning ahead

Just realized CiTR Radio’s 24 Hours of Radio Art will be here in just 2 months, time for me to start thinking of what I’ll do for it. The last 2 years I’ve prepared work in advance, in 2010 it was audio collages of spoken word about the Olympics and wasted money mixed in with […]

The Age of the Import

Today’s announcement of the closure of the HMV store at Robson and Burrard in Vancouver sparked a bunch of Twitter commentary, including me giving a short version of this soapbox rant. Basically, it comes down to the chains ceased to be relevant years ago when instead of maintaining a broad stock they became more and […]

Happy Hallowe’en!

The pumpkin’s carved, the candy’s in a bowl by the door, waiting for dark and the first few trick or treaters as I listen to my friends Caroline and Marie chat on Marie’s radio show, Synchronicity [on citr.ca]: Synchronicity, Hallowe’en edition I spent most of the weekend working on music stuff, most will wait to […]

Pumpkin waits for dark

A couple good songs

“Fuck Me Pumps” by Amy Winehouse Chatting with my friend Val about skanks who figure they can sleep their way to the top, she mentioned this song. Love it, never heard it before. “Country Boner [Disco Viagra Mix]” by Puscifer Stumbled upon while deciding which Puscifer track to play on tonight’s Vampire’s Ball. Didn’t pick […]
