more like space... radio

i'm over the moon about this new development...
after months and probably years of procrastinating, mostly because i can get strangely obstinate about starting projects i don't already know how to do, i am taking the plunge:

behold, readers, the very first more like space radio podcast.

this is obviously going to be of interest to those of you who like to follow my playlists from the caustic lounge, or from my occasional live radio appearances. if you haven't followed those, you can find them by following this link. if that looks like something that might appeal to you, you might want to have an aural gander at "more like space" the radio show.

my aim is to have a one-hour show up approximately once per month, which should be doable, based on what i've managed to figure out thus far. the initial product is perhaps a little rough around the edges and figuring out the process of creating, hosting and publishing a podcast is something that crawled from under the floorboards of hell, but this now that i've taken the first step, it should be all sunshine and roses from here, right?

you can listen to the show within your browser here.

or download it from archive.org [recommended].

since this is a first swing, i'd really appreciate any feedback that would help improve the broadcast for future episodes.

if you are an artist and would like to have your work included [or specifically excluded for copyright reasons], please feel free to leave a comment, or email me at info@fsquaredmedia.net. if you'd like to suggest themes or tracks for future shows, you can also feel free to do so.

here's the playlist for episode one ::

aavikko :: el cebo/ intro

crash course in science :: kitchen motors
heimstatt yipotash :: lituya bay
crash worship :: wild mountain
militia :: new world view
militia :: the fragment and the whole

[set break/ announcements]

korpses katatonik :: shatok

hope that you enjoy this first foray into a brave new world. thanks, as always, to dom, for the lovely "the girl in the moon" artwork for the show.

eat the cup, 2018, part one :: open up and say 'da'

as always at the beginning of the world cup tournament, i spend my first couple of days trying to decide which country to feature first. i had pretty much made up my mind that i would follow last cup's example and honour the hosts first off, but then i decided that it would be even more fun to come up with a meal that combined the cuisines of both teams in the first game.

of course, that would mean accepting that there were two teams on the pitch in the first game and i think some fans would say that was arguable. no one expected much of saudi arabia, to be fair. but no one expected a lot from russia, so having the hosts welcome everyone by stampeding over their first opposition like a herd of rabid camels was, to say the least, unexpected. their 5-0 mauling of the saudis gave produced a new hero, denis cheryshev, a man who didn't even rate inclusion in the "panini" sticker booklets that fifa produces, and the first meme of the tournament when russian president vlad…

making faces :: a lip for all seasons [summer edition]

this may seem like an odd time to think about summer, but not to think about coolness. it can be hard to wrap your head around the idea that summer is considered "cool" in colour analysis terms and, in my opinion, reads as the coolest of the cool, because everything in it is touched with the same chilly grey. winter may have the coldest colours, but its palette is so vivid that it distracts the eye. everything in summer is fresh and misty, like the morning sky before the sun breaks through. in my original post on the season, i compared it to monet's paintings of waterlilies at his garden in giverny and, if i do say so, i think that's an apt characterisation.

finding lip colours touched with summer grey and blue is, as you might expect, kind of tricky. the cosmetic world seems obsessed with bringing warmth, which doesn't recognise that some complexions don't support it well. [also, different complexions support different kinds of warmth, but that's another…

eat the cup 2018 :: welcome, comrades!

even regular followers of this blog might be surprised to learn that the longest-standing tradition on more like space is not tied to politics, makeup, mental health or even writing, but sport. i started the quadrennial eat the cup "challenge" [in quotes because i'm not actually challenging anyone but myself] way back in 2006 as a way of combining my growing love of soccer, my love for cooking and my still-new blogging habit. i determined that, as i followed the world cup, i would cook dinners to honour the winners of different games, meaning that the meal would, as far as possible, feature traditional dishes from those nations. in subsequent iterations, i started to do dishes that were combinations of different winners from the same day or, as the competition wore on, combinations of the different combatants.

finding certain ingredients can be a challenge, even in a diverse city like montreal [and i live on the cusp of some of its most diverse neighbourhoods], but what…
