#15 at CiTR

For whatever reason my Google alert didn’t tip me off to this one, came in to do my radio show [The Vampire’s Ball] at CiTR Radio and saw my name on the wall by the music director’s office – on this week’s top 30 chart printout. So, Futureghosts has re-entered the chart and done so […]

Kila

For the last few weeks I’ve been thinking I’d like to find a Tibetan phurba [wikipedia tells me they’re more properly called a kila]. Not too sure why the notion came to me, though I figured it had to do with me working to get back into regular mediation and other such work. Ages ago […]

One good song

Maybe it’s just my asshole planet talking [Mars in Scorpio], but I find it amusing that the guy who wrote Rent had a song lamenting how he’d love to write just one good song before he died. And then he died just before the initial opening night. [Which was really the best thing that could […]


Beavis and Butthead in Astrology

Decided to take up astrology again, it’s been years since I used to study it a bit. As a refresher, I’m reading Raphael’s 1905 guide to astrology and I’m using a chart for a friend’s birth date as a reference. So, in the part about the mundane houses, Raphael mentions that the fifth house references […]


Ashes to ashes

Whenever I hear someone bitch and moan about horrible things that happened to their ancestors 200+ years ago all I can think is “wow, you actually know where you came from that far into the past?” [also a liberal dose of “you really have nothing better to do than to be pissed off about shit […]


Scarab

I came home to find a aqua-green scarab sitting on the threshold. About an inch long, not iridescent as they usually are [or at least he didn’t seem to be, other than on his six royal blue feet], more like the soft understated sheen of fine turquoise – not too shiny, not at all iridescent. […]


Possible New Wave cover picks

As I mentioned the other day, I’m excited about Coma Music Magazine’s upcoming covers compilation – industrial versions of hair metal songs [disc 1] and New Wave [disc 2]. I wrote the other days about possible choices to cover and submit for the hair metal portion, now I’ve managed to narrow down to just a […]

Tuesday is chart day for Canada’s college radio folks, and Futureghosts has a few more chart positions this week: #2 on the electronic top 10 at CFRU in Guelph. #4 on the electronic top 10 and #30 on the top 30 at CJAM in Windsor. #8 on the electronic top 10 at CJUM in Winnipeg. […]


No Monday Nite Noise this week, but in case you missed it when I posted it a few days ago, here’s “Alabaster (Creep Mix)” via YouTube: Download it off of Soundcloud for free.


Hair metal covers

Super stoked to hear about Coma Music Magazine’s upcoming covers compilation – industrial versions of hair metal songs [disc 1] and New Wave [disc 2]. Now, it’s always been kosher to like New Wave, but naturally it’s been about 25 years since it was OK to admit to liking hair metal. Fuck it. I was […]


Abracada-boo-hoo.

So some stage magicians are getting snippy again because people can find out how their sleight of hand is done [YouTube this time, of course]. eg, slow news day at the CBC here Boo hoo. This information on sleight of hand/cold reading etc. has always been available. in all sorts of manuals. Hell, I have […]
