I look forward to this marathon every year, I really like the RPGLB crew. I think the first of their marathons I saw was their third, RPGLB 2017.
RPG Limit Break 2023 - a video game charity marathon like GDQ but for RPG games - started today. There's a run of Parasite Eve going on right now, still in the early game:
Working through an odd mismatched selection this week. Electro and IDM then into four-on-the-floor house, techno, '90s bits, etc. . Nothing new I'm afraid but some nice old tunes from Cabaret Voltaire, FSOL, Legowelt, Safety Scissors, and more.

I found My Dinner With Andre uploaded to Youtube yesterday & spent the afternoon watching it. I last saw it around 15 years ago I think.
I generally like small conversational movies and My Dinner is one of the best, of course, a classic. Everybody's great in it. Could not stop laughing at the waiter. Their talk is a complex thing, a lot of it goes over my head and I'm sure there's multiple ways to read it. It's kind of exhausting (in a good way).
Something I noticed this time: Lloyd Kaufman was apparently the production manager & Troma is credited with "additional production services".
Was kind of a weird thing to do on the 4th of July now that I think about it.
CW: Mental Health, Self-Reflection
So June was a bad mental health month for me. Depression, the boring anhedonic kind, very strong this time. Just totally empty and grey. When I get that way it becomes impossible to do anything.
That's why I haven't published a mix in a few weeks. (If anyone has been wondering). I've been creatively exhausted for a little while anyway, as far as DJing can be considered "creative" I guess.
Just needed a break. My first in over six years. With a little time I'll get back on track.
