It's last Wednesday, which means DJ Megaphysics and I are playing music at Ground Kontrol tonight. Free play arcade, music from 9 PM until close, 21 and over, $7 at the door.

I've packed a bunch of downtempo, instrumental hip-hop, and big beat. I know Megaphysics is bringing Florida breaks and faster underground stuff.

"Spring breaks". Should be a fun time.'s avatar image // / 101821052156491537 Origin link. Source file.

Late night tea.

I'm digging through old downtempo and breakbeat releases for a show tomorrow. I left it up to the last second, unfortunately. Won't have much time to practice.'s avatar image // / 101798711575557549 Origin link. Source file. This is a reply.

*sigh*. 2019-03-22, not 2018. I mistyped there. Not worth deleting and reposting.'s avatar image // / 101764927300104316 Origin link. Source file.

Just finished reading "Babel-17" by Samuel R. Delany.

I'm a fan of Delany, but this is my first time through Babel-17. It's amazing. Sometimes a swashbuckling pulp sci-fi adventure, sometimes an exploration of language (esp. linguistic relativity, sapir-whorf). I really loved it.

I've got the Vintage trade paperback edition that includes "Empire Star", so I'll read that next.'s avatar image // / 101763583864914990 Origin link. Source file.

I'm watching Bryonato's speedrun of Titanfall 2 at Calithon. I'm amazed at the game's movement. It's the first big budget FPS with complex movement I've seen in... 10 years? Since Mirror's Edge.

The game would be better with q2 doublejumps and q3 wall clipping, though. That'd smooth it out.'s avatar image // / 101752796259661381 Origin link. Source file.

Spring forward, fall back... still surprising me days later.'s avatar image // / 101752359332979311 Origin link. Source file.

I managed to get an old rackmount spring reverb unit working. Plugged it into my DJ mixer's aux send / return; sounds great. The controls are too scratchy to use, though.

Dub techno tonight. But first it's tea time.'s avatar image // / 101735575820774088 Origin link. Source file.

The band on my second pair of RP-HTX7 headphones broke a few days ago. The first pair had other problems, so tonight I got to swap parts between them to yield one working pair of headphones.


I'm sad that Panasonic discontinued the RP-HTX7s. They're great to work on.'s avatar image // / 101725753395330681 Origin link. Source file.

And now I'm rocking out to the Project A-Ko soundtrack.

I guess I'm on a nostalgia trip tonight.'s avatar image // / 101725278684350065 Origin link. Source file.

Phantasm is my favorite horror movie.

The pacing is perfect. And the editing. And the performances. And the story - the two brothers, their relationship.

It still scares me. I love almost everything about it.

Screengrab from Phantasm (1979) from the beginning of the movie, picturing Jody walking towards Morningside Cemetery.'s avatar image // / 101723903098457905 Origin link. Source file.

MTT 105 / Unfinished Business

MTT105 Spectrogram

Ambient, downtempo, and weird stuff this week. Winding down from DJing at the arcade last night.

This episode’s recording did not stop when the show did, so unfortunately it ended up being nine hours long. One hour of MTT, eight hours of robot DJ Kumata. It's still available here, or linked as the spectrogram above.

This show (like most of MTT Year 3) is no longer available for download here. Get in touch with me at the email address listed at the top of this page if you want a copy of it.
