dj kali & mr. dna @ the caustic lounge 06.07.11

ah, the first wednesday of the month, time to let my hair down [which i can't do anymore, since dom helped me cut it all off] and inflict my musical taste on the assembled masses [masses being relative]. tonight's playlist featured an abundance of fuzz from mr. dna and  an abundance of technical issues from myself. thanks to all those who came out, we look forward to seeing you again in august.

dj kali & mr. dna "au naturel"


dj kali on the wheels of rusting steel

the pop group :: she is beyond good and evil
the stranglers :: get a grip on yourself
oto :: blue arrow
chrome :: you've been duplicated
[this unfortunately started skipping like a school girl with a new jump rope, which led me to slam on the first thing my hand came in contact with, which was...]
the danse society :: my heart skipped another beat
annie anxiety :: turkey girl
portion control :: chew ya to bits
maska genetik :: ernste stunde
the residents :: blue rosebuds
shockheaded peters :: blue rosebuds
[aw, you see what i did there? playing the original and then the completely unrecognisable cover? it would have been awesome except that there was a problem with one of the cables and all the audience heard was a wall of static, so tech support had to come and frig around with the cables until a track that i didn't intend on playing at all suddenly came on and that was...]
these immortal souls :: marry me [lie! lie!]
xiu xiu :: ceremony
sleep chamber :: the light pours out of me
sol invictus :: looking for europe
zero kama :: prayer of zos
coil :: ostia
death in june :: only europa knows
the monitors :: loch ness
novy svet :: en possession de te

so yeah, the final track was something i intended on doing, which was closing with the track that i've always used for closing [in the last few years], because i hadn't done it in a couple of months.

and then there was...

mr. dna's "there will be fuzz" mega-crunchy guitar set

I could not stop giggling at that photo when I saw it on my camera. I'm just glad he let me use it... the lipstick is Hibiscus by Mac, from their "Surf Baby" collection. I was planning on doing a post on looks using coral shades... Now I'm hoping to get Dom to photobomb all of them...

presidenting is hard :: these people are not your friends

hello mr. president! a while back, i promised that i would periodically be giving you some advice on how to do your job, since you seem a little unclear on how everything works. i didn't mean to go so long between missives, but the fact is that i've been busy and you're administration has been in overdrive giving me things to write about. what i've realised is that many of those things are ones i can't help you with: if you or anyone in your immediate circle worked with russians to compromise the 2016 election, that shit is done. robert mueller is going to find that out, because he's the kind of person who looks like the theme from dragnet just automatically starts playing every time he enters a room. so that's your problem. i'm just here to talk to you about what you can do now that you are, by law, the president. because, while chief detective mueller is doing his thing, we all need to live with your decisions. i'm even less happy about that than…

write brain

i was talking to a friend of mine about coffee, specifically about our mutual need for coffee, yesterday and, literally as i was in the middle of a thought, an idea occurred to me that i felt like i had to note. so there i am, scribbling a note to myself that was really just a word salad of related terms, which i later transformed into a weird but more comprehensible note that i could refer to later. [i don't want another beatriz coca situation on my hands.] i feel like this idea isn't a story on its own, but something that i could incorporate into a larger project, which is good, because i have a few of those.

now, of course, i need to sit down and do research on this, because it's become terribly important to me that the details of this weird little idea that i'm planning on incorporating into a larger thing be totally plausible, even though no one but me is ever going to care. i'm increasingly convinced that the goal of every writer is to find someone who will t…

making faces :: can grown-ups wear glitter?

i'm uneasy with the return of several nineties trends in fashion and makeup, despite the fact that it was the defining time of my young adult life. i was not into the dark-outline/ light centre colour on the lip. i wasn't into the over-plucked brows. i wasn't into the robin's egg blue eyeshadow. and it took me a long time to feel comfortable with brown lipstick. [i was into the blood clot-coloured lips, but you probably guessed that already.]

but of all the trends in the nineties, there was none that i avoided so completely as glitter. whenever i saw people out with chunks falling all over their faces and bodies, it made me think of children playing with their art supplies. the damn stuff never seemed to stay put, so you could walk into a club or a party looking like a dark fairy, but it always ended up looking more like a wannabe vegas showgirl gone on a bender in short order.

my only direct experience with glitter came one halloween just a few years ago, when i dress…
