{September 12, 2005}   It’s Alive!! Mahhhhhh…

I’m so damn happy with myself it’s down right scary!

After a good year of being a lazy and procrastinating ass over my halloween mix that I have failed on several occasions to finish… I am almost finished!

I’m down to the last 2 cds! 2 cd’s good and done and the other two being tweaked with as we speak. (Track listing coming later….)

I have decided to give them away to co workers for Halloween along with some candy. And I’m going to send the all 4 cd’s to my good friend Andrea who has been waiting for me to get off my ass for a good year now. (Note: My co workers will most likely get the 1 or 2 cd mix instead of all 4.)

I wonder if anyone is going to be holding Halloween Mix swap this year? Hmm, maybe I should hold one.

Anyone interested?


{September 09, 2005}   I Heart Audioscrobbler

As if I needed another reason to love audioscrobbler, they changed they’re url to and made it 10 times betters. Better Graphics. Better Design.

Audioscrobbler, for those new to it, is a plugin that attaches itself your iTunes.. Winamp.. and collects info about the music you are playing and then displays it on your profile. This is what is currently on my profile.

And a little gem is the personal radio. If you pay 3 bucks (I paid for only one month) you have your personal hear what you have listening to through your personal radio link on your profile page.

Wanna hear mine? Go to my profile and click on “Personal Radio” and found out, though I can’t be held responsible for any overplaying of Korn or Eminem. I share the computer with my boyfriend and the computer keeps track of everything!


{August 23, 2005}   DEPECHE MODE download arrests


A man has been arrested by police in Poland after he allegedly made a DEPECHE MODE single and video available to download from the internet ahead of its official release date.

The track ’Precious’, which is not due to hit the shops until October, was found on a Polish website and the band’s record label – along with industry groups – managed to trace the origins of the files.

Police said that the video was illegally made public after it was accessed from a supposedly secure copy.

Two computers and a number of CDs said to contain copied music were removed by police after they raided an address in Kielce.

According to BBC News, Polish industry group ZPAV and Depeche Mode’s label Mute helped the International Federation Of Phonographic Industries (IFPI) to have the files removed.

If I wait until October to hear the new Depeche Mode CD (especially being the DM crazed fan that I am and all) then the rest of the world can too.

Though, it does kinda freak me out that they were able to do a illegal music raid that fast. Someone out there must have gotten a pretty sweet reward for ratting out a friend, family member etc…


{July 31, 2005}   Girl Dies at the hands of her very own CD Mix… More @ 11.

I have been working hard revamping my neverending project a.k.a “Expertimental Halloween Mix”. I started this idea some time last year. Come up with a great, kick ass halloween themed cd mix to send out to friends for Halloween. Sounds nice enough, but no copies ever got sent. Why?

The short answer is that this project feels like it will never end for me. I love and adore Halloween and the whole month of October as well. It’s the only time of the year that I feel awesome and god forbid happy. Year after Year, I read blog entry after entry about how people utterly hate Halloween. It’s all about “commercialism”, they say. A night to be stupid and cause trouble. I never saw it that way.

I grew up in the eighties when the second coming of great horror movies was in full swing and for a dysfunctional little girl who never really fit in with the status quo anyways, it was nirvana. Heaven on earth. To spend one night having no rules. Dressing up or down. To dye your hair pitch or hot neon pink.. To be that witchy vamp without people reading too much into it. And there’s the candy. I used love to go trick and treating just to see the various kinds of candy that my brother and managed that night. We would eat all the good candy first and leave the hard bubble gum and foreign candy in the bottom of the candy bowl.

I’m 24 now. I can dress, throw halloween parties and go to haunted houses and such, but I like to get others involved. So I make these cd mixes to get others in the Halloweenie mood.

So for years, I have been collecting a nice amount of Halloween related music. From the classic innocence of novelty of the fifties to the industrial anger of Nine Inch Nails to other wordly quality of Dead Can Dance.

But the question starts to be with all this music, how is it possible to make a simple one cd mix? It’s damn near impossible. At last count, my halloween cd mix consisted of six cds. Six freakin’ cds?!!

{July 02, 2005}   Live 8 with a Reunited Pink Floyd

Oh my. Look hell has frozen over.
Pink Floyd performing together for the first time in a looong time... @ Live 8

Much like last time (Live Aid) London had the much better performances. I mean, come on, a reunited Pink Floyd was the musical “O” I had been waiting for. Roger Waters together once again with David Gillmore’s brillant gutiar was enough to make me weep. This was the first (maybe the last time) that they have played together as orginial “Pink Floyd” since 1981. 24 years of waiting for some people… could you just imagine?

I couldn’t watch all eight hours of “Live 8″ because well, I had a life. I didn’t get off of work until 8 a.m. and spent a good amount running around town (or rather beginning dragged around town by my father) doing some random stuff. (a.k.a driving slowly insane.)

I only caught a few performances.

Kanye West
Kanye West plays the
(Pretty good.. I liked the violists with the black painted square over they’re eyes. Reminded me of later Queen videos.)

Stevie Wonder (A legend, but yet I feel that the crowd wasn’t really in to it. Sad.. really sad. I could done without Rob Thomas though. I quickly changed the channel out of a irrational fear that he’d break into “Smooth”. )

Pink Floyd. (Lovely, though I could done without some of reverb I heard when Roger Waters sang “Comfortably Numb“. Kinda ruins the whole experience.)

Paul McCartney with George Michael. (Didn’t see much of them. Sleep started to kick in for me. So….)
