madirid, bam bam brother (estate remix)

My friends in Minneapolis electronic jamz Estate sent me a promo remix they just finished and I’m going to post it. I love the synth work – almost reminds me of Royksopp at times. One thing I don’t really care for is the vocals. That’s weird too, because I listened to more of Madrid’s songs at their Myspace and the vocals sound good. It’s just something about vox for Bam Bam?

Anyway, it’s a great remix so click the picture to check it out!

NyteTraxx 001 Party at Too Much Love

NyteTraxx 001 Party at Too Much Love


Well, my first release is hitting and this isn’t the time or place to talk about it. I should be talking about the PS3 I have not even opened, or perhaps how my dog was trying to eat a plastic sack full of liquified (past moldy stage) bananas that were hidden somehow in the kitchen. Anything but my record release party.

So, on Saturday I played wii for the second time in my life, which is probably a surprise to some. Cheetara and I went over to the neighbors for Valentines day and played “wii fitness”. I excelled in Soccer heading (duh!) and boxing. In fact, soccer I was pro status after the first time I played. Boxing I was having no problems whatsoever. Everyone was impressed. The events I weren’t so good at were ski jumping and cunninglus.

On the topic of feeling dirty, today I got an apple iTunes refund email that for some reason, made me feel dirty. I think the specific language that got me all hot was.. recipient, satisfied, and pleased:

“You’re very welcome. I’m glad to hear that I was of help in refunding the gift that had the recipient in another country. It’s always nice to hear a Thank You from a satisfied customer. It helps me with my work day. Glad to be of help. Nothing makes Apple happier than to hear that we have pleased our customers. I hope that you continue to enjoy the iTunes Store. Have a great day! Sincerely, Philip – iTunes Store Customer Support”

I think I’m going to try and request a “follow up chat” with Philip and see what else he says about how pleased and satisfied I was with the experience.

hold my heart

I’m starting to get more promo music now that I started the label. While a lot of it is shit… um. yeah, a lot is beautiful, soul inspiring music:

Jana. I ask you again. Hold My Heart.

“Hopefully, as Solid Gold’s musicianship and confidence improves they will no longer feel the need to rely on synthesized gimmicks.” –RIFT

This is the most ignorant quote I have seen out of Minneapolis music press in a while.   So wrong.  There is such a big world out there MN., why don’t you go investigate it?  

I only wish I could more often.

Go ahead and take a moment to look at my profile.  Appreciate every detail.   My games.. my blogs.. my “favs”.

Then think back – maybe even log in.  Were you my friend?  Did we ever have a meaningful conversation about videogames?  Did you hit on me?  Did you think I was pretty?

UGLY AND OR GOOD LOOKING Multi-Cultural GUYS (and 2 girls) GAMING CREW – this was phase two.  This was my dream, which was taken from me before I could enjoy the fruits of my labor.

I’m testing video, and I’m actually kinda pissed it’s so difficult to post videos and flash audio players into wordpress.  But I suppose that’s why they call it wordpress – not videopress.  Anyway, I was testing VIMEO videos, IMEEN sound capsules, FAIRTILIZER, and having problems so if you know the trick, please let me know.  I think I may be onto something though-  because I noticed YOUTUBE videos are really easy to add and that WordPress automatically adds a little piece of code at the start and end of the link.

Anyway, since you’re here you may as well check out the video.  I think at some point I’m going to do a tribute post just for that night.  I have a great quantity of pics, audio, and video footage of the weirdest show of I attended in 2008.  It was my friends’ band Athletes in Slacks playing at this little hole in the wall bar, The Terminal Bar. 

So then, this video shows (well, it’s dark but maybe I’ll edit this and the others for the mega post later) my brother getting teased by the Eastern European sound lady.  It starts with her telling him he has love handles, and just keeps getting better from there. It goes without saying the 1rudecrudelewddude blog with have some stinky language, so put your headphones on.

there’s this young kid in minneapolis who does techno called Bankie Phones:

www.myspace.com/bankiephones 

We did a show in October and recently made a track –  he sent me some harsh techno sounds and I added cut up pieces of an old disco song called LOVE AFFAIR w/ some more of my own drums and synth stuff.  this is the result of the first song:

 BANKIE PHONES/ CON Joint #1

I want to mention that this blog isn’t a music blog – or even a promotion blog for my music projects really.  But I will be posting tracks as I make them.  Because it’s one part of this complex being, known as fuck con.
