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.

armchair centre back :: finding your best boss

everything i know about bosses, i've learned from watching the premier league this year. 

it's been a long time since i posted about my love of football [soccer], possibly because i was traumatised by seeing my darlings swansea city getting mauled week after week, all the while looking like they were playing for the right to choose between being executed by guillotine or firing squad. it's been a very long season. well, half a season. suddenly, however, it doesn't seem so bad. the reason for that is very clear: carlos carvalhal. swansea's new portuguese manager is a breath of fresh air, and a complete switch from the focused and pragmatic paul clement. now, i liked paul clement, and i think that his internship at some of the best clubs in the world made him a real catch. it's just that sometimes you need to find someone who connects with your team, your people, which carlos definitely seems to have done. as the days lengthen and the weather shows some signs of…

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…
