dj kali on the radio 17.07.11

thanks again to eric b. for letting me take over his auditory space and giving me the chance to play a mix of things i hadn't gotten to inflict on people in a while and some things that hadn't been broadcast outside the homestead. hope that those who were able to tune in live enjoyed what they heard. you can listen to it in convenient podcast form by clicking here. it's the one from july 16th, obviously. [because the method of archiving radio are more accurate than the people doing the programming, the show starts at approximately 4m40s into the recording and the end is a little amputated.]

here's the playlist in less exciting, but very easily followed written form [sets are separated by an asterisk]::

konstruktivists :: incognito
 eric b & ckut, neither exactly as pictured
die form :: your reality
fax cerebri :: haiphong
grim :: noble folk

*

bene gesserit :: le chanson d'ugly
human flesh :: wij
pseudo code :: keep smiling
tony wakeford/ steven stapleton :: walk the white ghost
edward ka-spel :: the fool

*

kreng :: le bataleur
bohren & der club of gore :: midnight black earth
88 :: whisper

*

voice of eye :: transmission
life garden :: blue moon child
mekanorganik :: extracting light from cucumbers
mandible chatter :: from whence and to whither
human greed :: gloaming

*

maska genetik :: stradanie
haus arafna :: god sows secrets

A sock monkey? Wow. I've actually been looked for a stuffed plush Kali for years. I collect odd plush toys and Kali is sort of my ultimate goal in this regard (for some reason cuddly Kalis aren't common). I think I'd take her with me when I dj'd and I'd insist that anyone who approached me direct their questions/ requests to her.

as long as you're here, why not read more?

mental health mondays :: the war at home

what's worse than being sent off to war when you're barely old enough to order a drink in a bar? making it home only to get poisoned by the government that sent you there. 
although it's certainly not a secret, i don't find that the opiate/ opioid crisis happening in america gets nearly the attention it deserves. at least, what attention it gets just seems to repeat "thousands of people are dying, it's terrible", without ever explaining how things got to the state they are now. there's mention of heroin becoming cheaper, of shameful over-prescriptions and dumping of pills in poorly regulated states/ counties, etc. but too much of the media coverage seems content to say that there's a problem and leave it at that.

one of the things that might be hindering debate is that a very big problem likely has a lot of different causes, which means that it's important to break it down into smaller problems to deal with it. and one of those problems conne…

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.

digging for [audio] treasure

my computer tells me that i need to cut down the amount of music stored on my overstuffed hard drive. my ears tell me that that would deprive me of some wonderful listening experiences. 
halifax, nova scotia was not the easiest place to find out about music with limited appeal. it was a very music-centred city, to be sure, but, being smaller, things like noise, industrial, and experimental music struggled to gain a foothold, even as the alternative rock scene exploded in the early nineties. i was lucky enough to have some friends who were happy to share music that they loved, but i knew that there were lots of things that i was missing out on.

with the dawn of the internet, and various types of music sharing, i found myself able to discover bands that i'd heard about, but never managed to track down, from the days of underground cassette culture. and, to my surprise and elation, many of them do very much live up to what i'd imagined from reading descriptions of them in catalo…
