teh (anti)xmas s3quence

even scrooges occasionally listen to christmas music.  it’s just that our taste in christmas music is occasionally a bit twisted.  every year i make a playlist for the holidays.  here’s the latest incarnation with some of the staples that hang around year after year. 01 john lennon, happy christmas (war is over) 02 the pretenders,… Continue reading teh (anti)xmas s3quence

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

teh s3quence, version 3

it’s been a while since i posted or did one of these and i tweeted probably over a week ago that i wanted to do a hip-hop mix next time around, so i got around to doing it.  it’s longer by far than the others, and it only has a few minor effups (well, one… Continue reading teh s3quence, version 3

teh s3quence version 2

i had the opportunity last night to record another live mix.  i played with the cool effects less this time but that was partially because there was a cat hiding/trapped in the kids’ bedroom while they were a sleep trying to get out.  here it is: [audio:s3quence-002.mp3] setlist for teh s3quence 2 1 dead can… Continue reading teh s3quence version 2

teh s3quence version 1

i’ve been listening to mike skinner’s (of the streets) “skinmixes.”  they’ve reminded me what i loved about spinning records; creating moods and the flow of one song to the next, exposing music i love, and throwing some oddball stuff in for good measure.  skinner seems to have a similar approach, which is why i dig his… Continue reading teh s3quence version 1
