teh s3quence 015 – HALLOWEEN 2011 EDITION

Because I like to do things out of order (and also because I totally forgot that I hadn’t posted teh s3quence 014…), I’m giving you teh s3quence 015, the HALLOWEEN EDITION! Usually when I make a Halloween mix, it’s pretty straightforward — pick a bunch of songs that are about zombies, vampires, ghosts or are… Continue reading teh s3quence 015 – HALLOWEEN 2011 EDITION

Visit Plague Music on Turntable.fm

I haven’t been quiet about being addicted to loving Turntable.fm.  I took a break from Turntable for about a week, only to be reminded how awesome a platform it is when I came back.  The ability to see immediate feedback to the songs you play is almost better than DJ’ing at an actual club or party… (read more)

Turntable.fm: A place for DJs, wannabe-DJs, music snobs, and — interestingly enough — musicians to hang out

I’ve been playing on turntable.fm for the last couple weeks.  I’ve been on the site so much that if my wife sees a window with a funky red curtain that looks like a cartoon version of the White Lodge in Twin Peaks (enough that I expect a dancing midget to start talking backwards at me at… (read more)

A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part 2

RPM2011 is 9 days away and it seems appropriate to finish this retrospective series before RPM starts.  Part 1 of this series covered the early beginnings of my interest in music up through high school and eventually turning to the computer as a means for producing and recording music.  Part 2 will cover how that… Continue reading A History of Bedroom Music Production — Part 2

teh TOTALLY 80s s3quence

music was a cornerstone of my childhood. i grew up with mtv and what i consider to be the height of radio — back when dj’s played good music that wasn’t dictated by record labels. some people think that 80s music sounds kitchy, dated, or lo-fi, but i say it’s all of these things that… Continue reading teh TOTALLY 80s s3quence

teh s3quence 006

so i finally got around to checking again on what was wrong with my media center.  i hooked it up to my other monitor and a spare keyboard and mouse i had lying around and first checked BIOS for any signs of processor issues like overheating, but there were none.  i turned on all the… Continue reading teh s3quence 006

teh anti-4th(of july) s3quence

i always make these playlists for various holidays that are the opposite of the norm.  so, like alien sex fiend’s “stuff the turkey” or the ramones’ “merry christmas (i don’t want to fight tonight” for christmas.  in that spirit, and in the spirit that dissent is patriotic (even though, for the first time in a… Continue reading teh anti-4th(of july) s3quence

teh (metal) s3quence, version 5

i was listening to a mix cd i made of stuff i listened to in high school and junior high and the beginnings of it is all this old 90’s era metal that i was just discovering through friends and mtv, and it made me nostalgic.  nostalgic and singing along to “hangar 18” at top… Continue reading teh (metal) s3quence, version 5

teh s3quence, version 4

recorded a new s3quence mix.  sort of a mix with some left field stuff in here.  i keep going back to hip hop, i guess it’s just what’s in my head these days.  but i threw in some acid jazz and indie electronic/idm-type stuff, too.  there’s also some scratching, but only some of it is… Continue reading teh s3quence, version 4
