I just received an email from Newsmax… (dont ask why I get them, and yes I know I could just use a spam filter… but I like to know what the bigoted idiots are saying….)

anyhoo.. they are pimping for people to support an effort to put these despicable ads on air…

this one in michigan specifically….

this one too…

and this one nationally…

who is behind these disgraceful ads?

Howard Kaloogian,Sal Russo, Russo Marsh & Rogers principal Joe Wierzbicki, and Marine mom Deborah Johns. the same douches behind “Move America Forward” this time, going  by the name “Our Country Deserves Better PAC”

as you can see … truth, and context appear to be a premium for these folks and the production values are “stellar” 😡  (yeah, right…. my 14 yr old daughter can do better with her pocket cam and a freeware editor)…. not surprising though… these guys are a joke… I wonder what sort of people would actually donate to this crap? or associate with these type of people?

these idiots will be in michigan on these dates with their “stop obama tour”….

the title above is an old phrase i used to say all the time, and it has been creeping back into my vocabulary again as of late. I truly believe it. when it comes to music, after that first time you play it, it becomes nothing but auditory masturbation. this is why i try to make sure I am always recording when I compose. the best stuff i have ever done has been done on the fly. and when I am recording a band, I highly encourage the same sort of behavior from the musicians present. give me something new. . . play it like you never have before… with feeling… the first time i roll tape. I HATE overdubs…they always seem contrived.

I have been ACHING to lay down some new musical ideas lately….and because of that, I have been listening to some old tracks and studying what we did in studio. I came accross one of the best examples of what I stated above. this track was done I believe in the spring of 2001 or was it 2002(deacon help me out on this)… during which a bottle of sake was consumed.

deacon came over to the house with the bottle of sake, so we were in the right mood for sweet sweet musical love. we went down to basement where my studio was… set up his laptop, my latoptop, studio computer, and i believe a keyboard(I think he brought along his microkorg for the first time… again, could be wrog on that). deacon had the thought of aping an underworld track… while i was in one of my 808 state forever moods( it ended up sounding like something Dr. Patterson would do with the ORB).

we ended up making 3 or 4 passes at the track… never overdubbed a single instrument… just added as we went along. a short bit of tightening on the production, and this was the result.

I STILL love this track… and miss those recording sessions….

in celibration of 80808, what could be better than some 808 state?

timebomb-track is just a JAM… deacon should recognize the baseline that I have ripped off time and time again….

OLYMPIC-since the olympics open today… this one seems fitting…love the hair too… and check out the atari providing sync

pacific-is there a more beautiful start to a techno track? this track pretty much launched the entire genre of “trans”…. everyone wanted to emulate those string lines.

IN YOUR FACE- this goes out to .. well, if you have been reading comments… you know who.

One In Ten(with UB40)-quite possibly my favorite remix the 808 boys have done. yes, I know the song by definition, and content is UBER gay…. but it is a F’n JAM)

gotta have 808080808

and the classic… CUBIK

nope… none of this EVER influenced my music… never…..

with the swirl of activity that I have been involved with lately, getting the new business rolling along, new songs I am working on, working with the fab guys in Maceri… one thing keeps rearing its ugly head… and frankly, I am not sure what I should do.

I am talking about DJing. I keep being presented with different opportunities to get back on stage…. I used to do pretty good with it, I was never knock down drag out fantastic, but I was quite good. did some REALLY big parties, clubs, etc. I occasionally miss the performance…and with a minimal amount of practice, and with the modern gear… I would be FAR better than I used to be…….it just always seemed to me to be an activity for 20somethings.

now, I know there are a ton of guys older than me that have a superstar status, hell isn’t Oakenfold using a walker to get on stage now?

speaking of guys that age…. I am currently watching “Fatboy slim/Big Beach boutique” old bastard just worked into “get me off” by basement jaxx… DAMN I LOVE THAT SONG!!! the Danielson got pissed at me on air one time for using that as a bumper on the Lockerroom show….hey, they were talking about strippers… it seemed appropriate. . .

as far as fatboy slim…. it is guys like him that give me a little bit of encouragement to get out and gig again. on the other hand… I always liked his stuff he did with The Housemartins (he was the bass player) better than most of his dance music…..
