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...

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...

so hip it hurts

there aren't too many artists who stand out as being iconically canadian. it's too easy to mistake us for some other people, mostly americans, who are, let's be honest, pretty similar in a lot of ways. [this is the bit where i apologise for avril lavigne, justin bieber and drake.] the guess who/ bachman turner overdrive held sway over an earlier generation, and musicians and those who appreciate technical proficiency will speak of rush like they are gods, but last night the country said goodbye to perhaps the most canadian of canadian bands, the tragically hip.

for those of you not familiar with that name, the hip emerged in the mid-to-late eighties, among a slew of canadian bands [54-40, the northern pikes, the pursuit of happiness, the grapes of wrath] that balanced on the line between mainstream and alternative rock. all of them played accessible guitar-based music with none of the bombast of seventies dinosaurs, but equally with no hint of the drug-fueled anger that w…

shut up

general reaction seems to be that last night's vice presidential debate was close to a draw, with a slight edge going to mike pence [other than among cnn's panel of independent voters, who overwhelmingly chose tim kaine as the winner]. i feel that's an accurate assessment, although it's largely a question of personal preference. pence absolutely projected the stoic, unflappable, unwavering image that many americans [not just republicans, either] seem to like and equate with strength. for my part, i prefer someone who's a little more mercurial, someone who's able to gets excited about ideas and who's able to expand on them, not just repeat talking points.

so, from my point of view, both vice presidential candidates were pretty disappointing. i found that kaine had a fantastic command of facts and history- he knew pence's voting record better than pence knew his and possibly better than pence knew his own. his opening answers were so smoothly delivered i…

mental health mondays :: parabnormal?

for north america and parts of europe, halloween marked the apex of spooky events, where the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead was at its most diaphanous. but if you're a very traditional roman catholic, you'll know that the 31 of october is merely the beginning, and that the entire month that follows is dedicated to remembering and praying for the dead, specifically for those whose souls are trapped in purgatory. if you listen to dante, purgatory isn't especially pleasant. sure, there's the possibility that you'll end up working off your debt to celestial society, but until then, you get to endure things like having your goddamned eyes sewn shut with iron wire. [much like condo developments, it gets better the higher the floor you live on.]

however, the more common view of purgatory among catholics is that the souls relegated there can't do anything to help themselves, and are reliant on the prayers of their living relatives and loved ones to …
