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
human greed :: freeview

[set break/ announcements]

korpses katatonik :: shatok
rapeshower :: feel this
sobre a maquina :: rotina

[extro/ announcements]

thomas nola et son orchestre :: kinderbund

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.

long suffering

i've been meaning to write this post for a while, but, every time i get started, something happens that makes me rethink portions of it, to add or subtract or consider a different way of looking at things. the post was originally going to be my take on a #metoo statement, but i ended up making that post on my personal facebook page. [it's not that i don't love you all, but there are a few things i'm not comfortable putting in the entirely public sphere.] but beyond joining the #metoo juggernaut, i wanted to write something about the wave of sexual assault revelations that continues to swell over the north american media landscape that wasn't about me. then i realised that that was a little more complicated than just writing "so, lotta sex rapes happenin' these days, ain't there?" or whatever it was that i was going to say.

so i tried writing something about just a part of it: the media coverage or the entertainment industry or the politicians or …

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 :: getting cheeky

blush might just be the last thing that a beauty lover comes to appreciate, seeing as it can be a matter of slight degrees that separates one product from another, and it's most difficult to tell from just swatching a product how it's going to look. and it did take me a long time to appreciate that, despite loving my refined pallor and believing that my natural rosy flush was more than enough of a blush for me, blush is my friend. it softens, sculpts, perfects and, although you might not see it at first blush [yuk yuk yuk], it is something that subtly harmonises with the other colours in a look to make it "complete". yes, it's the most tricky thing to pull off when you're wearing something that doesn't mesh with your own undertones. but it's also the thing that can take a face from gloomy to glowing with a swish of the magic wand known as a makeup brush.

highlighters are an even trickier lot, since many of the more brilliant ones have a tendency to e…
