    Marijuana smack

    Ha! Actually, I think you're right, but I must admit my gears get a bit gummy, always takes me a few days to make the switch.

    bLectum From bLechdom.....

    I really don't have anything particularly constructive to add to this except to say that I'm totally psyched to see the pair addressed so positively on this forum. Bitches w/ Britches rocks my world whenever I put it on. The banjo can't be fucked with, and the cover of Private Dancer is...

    Union Pool Katrina Benefit last night in Brooklyn

    Anyone else at this last night? I thought the event was really top-notch, and it seemed like it was probably very successful in terms of raising money. I also thought Celebration put on a wicked show, inspiring, heartfelt, put the meaning of the night in perspective, and the drummer just...

    Marijuana smack

    I definitely knew a dude once who went WAY out of his mind every time he smoked. Predisposition to be sure. And I've definitely had my moments of extreme paranoia. I do think people downplay the addictive qualities... I find when I get high it's basically just an exaggeration of what my...

    Rebirth software now free (303/808/909 emulation)

    For mac they've got just the disc image up to download, so you don't have to load a cd to use. but they've only got it up as a bit torrent download now, which would be fine except that it seems there just aren't enough people w/ it online at the moment to get my download started. Maybe if I...

    When the levee breaks

    happened to catch c-span at 6 this past morning, they were showing Bush on his jaunt through the region. Watching him striking poses w/ governor of Alabama, Mike Brown of FEMA, some other dudes, all very well dressed and, you know, keeping their composure- Bush getting this completely silly...

    grime geniunely edging closer to US consciousness?

    nor how you can make sweeping comparisons between US taste and British taste... there are a lot of people in this here country, into a lot of different things. If somebody sells a million records, it's a lot, sure, but a super-small percentage of the total population.

    Sex and sensuality

    Maxinquaye was an album-length immersion in mysterious sexuality that was a bit over my young adolescent head. Martina's voice just absolutely squashed me.

    Grime/Bassline Mixes Audio

    not that my opinion is authoritative at all, but the first bassline mix put an hour of boring, boring work behind me right quickly. Thanks!

    Coldplay "sampling" Kraftwerk.

    In defense of not liking Coldplay: listening to that live bit there, Chris Martin really can't sing, can he? I mean, it's not like he's not trying...

    what are you reading now?

    Fairly new translation of Don Quixote (by Edith Grossman). I have nothing to compare it to, but it seems great and also seems to have gotten a fair bit of praise. I'm at this point where a side story is read aloud by the priest: it's about a newly married man who asks his best friend to try to...

    I hate Sigur Ros!

    So my subjective enjoyment of Sigur Ros from time to time is actually a bullshit, bogus experience? And it was really wierd too- the whole time I was reaching for that lever with George Bush's name next to it, I was wondering, "why the hell am I doing this," but I just couldn't stop myself...
