have it your way, baby!

have we got a deal for you!!
first of all, a big thanks to those of you who have downloaded "conversion" from vimeo! we've been
thrilled to see that so many people have been interested in watching our little film that could.

recently, vimeo has made some changes to their "on demand" service and we've decided to adjust the settings for "conversion" accordingly. here's the deal:

up until this week, the video on demand service only allowed for paid streaming. so far $5usd, you could were purchasing a feed that remained active for six months. within those months, you could watch the movie as many times as you could possibly imagine, until you set some kind of bizarre world record for number of times watching "conversion". [note :: it would be a pretty significant number of times to compete with dom, who can recite the entire script, with sound effects, backward.]

but now, things be different. now, vimeo have a download option. and we've decided to take advantage of that.

you will still be able to stream if you'd prefer not to clutter up your hard drive or make a lifetime commitment to loving us. it will still cost $5, but from now on, the stream will only remain active for three months. to all those of you who have purchased a stream already, of course, it will remain active for the full six months you were guaranteed. so basically, if you were among the first to buy in, you get three bonus months. [call now and we'll also include this wonderful 100% cruelty-free cat hair sleep mask!! you just pay extra shipping and handling!] [you should probably take your meds now. -ed.]

however, if you'd rather not bother with a temporary arrangement and would like to welcome "conversion" into your home for the long haul, you can now download the film for $10. no cut off date, no having to renew. for just $10, it's yours forever.

once again, the link to make the purchase is right here. operators are standing by.

[awesome conversion shamwow imagery by dom, of course.]

dj kali & mr. dna @ casa del popolo post-punk night

last night was a blast! a big thank you to dj tyg for letting us guest star on her monthly night, because we had a great time. my set was a little more reminiscent of the sets that i used to do at katacombes [i.e., less prone to strange meanderings than what you normally hear at the caustic lounge]. i actually invited someone to the night with the promise "don't worry, it'll be normal". which also gives you an idea of what to expect at the caustic lounge. behold my marketing genius.

mr. dna started off putting the "punk" into the night [which i think technically means i was responsible for the post, which doesn't sound quite so exciting]. i'd say that he definitely had the edge in the bouncy energy department.

many thanks to those who stopped in throughout the night to share in the tunes, the booze and the remarkably tasty nachos and a special thank you to the ska boss who stuck it out until the end of the night and gave our weary bones a ride home…

white trash

yes, my lovelies, i have returned from the dead, at least for the time it takes me to write this post. this is not just another piece of observational drivel about how i haven't been taking care of the blog lately, although i clearly haven't. on that front, though, the principal cause of my absence has actually been due to me trying to get another, somewhat related project, off the ground. unfortunately, that project has met with some frustrating delays which means that anyone who follows this blog [perhaps there are still a few of you who haven't entirely given up] would understandably be left with the impression that i'd simply forsaken more like space to marvel at the complexity of my own belly button lint. [it's possible you had that impression even before i disappeared.]

ok, enough with that. i have a subject i wanted to discuss with you, in the sense that i will want and encourage you to respond with questions, concerns and criticism in the comments or by em…

drive-by musings

i've written a fair bit on this blog about being a writer who waits for inspiration to strike her out of nowhere versus being a writer who puts serious work in on a daily basis and in doing so cultivates those precious lightning strikes and bottles them. i believe in and strongly encourage people to employ the latter method, as does pretty much every writer [or creative person] who is successful at this sort of thing. there have been stretches where i've been very good at this but the fact is that i slack off a lot and my brain has a tendency to grasp at multiple ideas at once without being able to relinquish any of them. basically, my brain is like someone who hasn't eaten in three days arriving at a buffet. everything looks good but the end result is that you end up with a bizarre combination of all of it that isn't nearly as satisfying as sticking to one flavour palette. [don't you dare tell me that cheese sticks go with sushi, because i will end you.]

i've…
