– if you have both scratch (or itch) and live 8

the offspring of ableton and serato is shown off at NAMM ’10

yes it is awesome, but if you are already djing with ableton – there’s really no reason to use the bridge for serato maybe except for the waveform visuals. (what happened to good old fashioned beat matching, guys?) this is more for serato users who want to embellish their tracks with Live. and how about your laptop running two programs simultaneously with other plug-ins… now there’s cruising for a bruising.

we think its more important to focus on the task at hand rather than to submit oneself to the violent and delirious throes of gadget-worship. don’t get us wrong, we do not kid when we say, we LOVE machines. but we remember the dog is wagging the tail, and not the other way around…

two alternating chords formed by the syllable ‘ha’ and text is spoken through a vocoder

very simple, very effective, performed in the 80s but had a special meaning for 911 – “here comes the planes”, “your petrochemical arms, your military arms”

once in a blue moon…

…which happens when passing through a residential area, id wonder what it would be like to live in suburbia. to live in the cute boxes made out of ticky tacky, to own a landrover, a mid-sized dog and parents who retired from normal jobs. plus a husband and two kids on the horizon. but then id enter into the jungle, the hustle-bustle of  gotham’s dwellers, into the clubs filled with drugged up people seeking to escape the monotony of their lives …and i’d wonder how i ever thought i would want to give this up. haha fuck mediocrity, fuck 9 to 5 jobs and balls and chains, fuck malls, and all the crap of a package that comes with white bread.

this kid has a nice dad though. with too much time on his hands, but sweet nonetheless.
