dj kali & mr. dna @ the caustic lounge [first anniversary] 07.03.12

here they are, the playlists from our first year anniversary extravaganza! well, really, it was more like most other editions of the caustic lounge, in that there were happy, friendly people, pints of potables and undergarments being removed [if you follow me on twitter, you've seen the proof]. thanks to everyone who showed up for making it such a great time and thanks for making our year a very pleasurable one, for at least one night a month. despite how much march hates me, last night was a lot of fun and a well-needed respite from stuff that's been frustrating both of us. we'll see you next month! [although i normally post cute pictures to represent us, the computer problems i'm having mean that i'm not typing this on my computer, so you'll have to just see boring old text. sorry. i have an appointment this afternoon which will hopefully resolve the technical issues.]

yes, you will notice that my set ended somewhat differently than usual. call it a further effect of march, but for the first time ever, i somehow unpacked my cd with my "end of the night" theme. it actually left everything on a strangely unfinished note... i'm blaming march.

jihadvertising?

i keep seeing this ad for tictac candies:



am i the only one who finds the suicide bomber clown at the end a little unnerving? all the nice natural things like the bunny and the [extinct] woolly mammoth and the fruit get devoured by a trying-to-appear-nonthreatening-but-obviously-psychotic clown who then blows himself up. congratulations, tictac, i think this ad has landed you on about a dozen watch lists.

oh and by the way, showing me that your product will somehow cause my stomach to explode in a rainbow of wtf makes me believe that doing consuming tictacs would be a worse dietary decision than the time i ate two raw eggs and a half a bottle of hot sauce on a dare.

making faces :: chanel's velvet realm

who doesn't love velvet? i know when i was younger, i used to, as george costanza longed to, "drape myself in velvet" and although that phase passed with time, i still think that the plush fabric has to be one of the high points of human achievement, up there with interior heating, advanced medicine and vodka. so to me, it's no surprise that one of the most hotly anticipated launches in the cosmetic world is chanel's new "rouge allure velvet" lipstick line, because even the name immediately makes me want to put it on my lips.

on a more concrete level, chanel describes these lipsticks as "luminous matte", which is sort of like the holy grail for lipstick lovers. we all want those intense, come-hither film noir lips, the sort where young men and sunlight are lost and never heard from again, but historically [including during the making of those films], applying a matte lipstick felt sort of like colouring in your lips with an old crayon that had…

eat the pain away?

nearly twenty years ago, an emergency room doctor took a look at the crushing muscle tension i was experiencing [they were clenched enough that a doctor at my regular clinic couldn't get a reflex reaction on my left side and thought i might be having a stroke] and told me she believed that i had fibromyalgia. a couple of weeks later, i went to see a family doctor that a coworker had recommended to me. when i told him what the other doctor had said, he snapped that i was being ridiculous, because, if i'd had fibromyalgia, "i wouldn't be able to move". after i moved to toronto, i got a new family doctor and told her what the other doctors had said. she said that she couldn't be sure, but it was better just to deal with any symptoms i had one at a time. then i came back to montreal and got a new family doctor, who didn't really buy into the whole idea of fibromyalgia and said there was no way to do any definitive test anyway. that doctor passed away, and my …
