cpm.1 FastCaps[.df] by power_of_heavy_metal

cpm.1 FastCaps[.df] at youtube.com. The latest (and sadly probably final) Quake 3 Defrag compilation video from power_of_heavy_metal. 15 minutes of fastcaps performed with cpm movement and fastcap 1 rules (so no weapons, teleports, or jumppads).

Content warning for flashing lights and first-person gameplay that might cause motion sickness. Same for all Quake videos.

power_of_heavy_metal has great taste in music and the selections for this video are no exception. I particularly like the second track, Io by Concealed Identity from their Nightingale Floor EP on Repertoire.

Linking this today because I found it recently and it's rad. I'll probably link the other power_of_heavy_metal compilation videos when I get around to rewatching them.





Media Shelves in FG Before Disassembly

A blurry photo of my shelves. I'm moving to a nearby city in a few days and wanted to document their state before I box everything up.

Two full-height wire shelving units containing books and movies, CDs and vinyl, video games and et cetera. Most of what's pictured was purchased used at donation centers, secondhand shops, and thrift stores. The DVD cases without artwork contain secrets.

I'm sure there's something to be said here about consumerism and embarrassing displays of conspicuous consumption but I haven't figured out what.

More breaks and electro this week, letting tracks run long, something smooth and easy on the ears. This mix features one pretty new track from the Imaginary Pathways album by Lindsheaven Virtual Plaza & SkyTwoHigh on No Problema Tapes and some recent tunes from CPU Records and Kouncil Cuts.

Right-click save-as here or on the spectrogram above to download this mix. This mix is also available at mixcloud.



Edge Habitat mixed by dequalsrxt

Edge Habitat mixed by dequalsrxt (AKA DRXT, AKA DJ Megaphysics). Released August 2021. Duration 61:09, 320 kbps 44.1khz mp3. Brilliant mix of Drum & Bass, IDM (?), and Jungle. Tracklist (with links to where you can purchase the music) is available at the soundcloud page.

dequalsrxt / DJ Megaphysics is my friend and partner in crime from way back. Together we hosted the Logical Aggression night at Ground Kontrol for nearly ten years. We have similar but slightly different tastes - we tend to go for the same records but where I might play the A side he might play the B.

Megaphysics puts a lot of time and effort into crafting his released mixes. He uploads one every year or two to his mixcloud and soundcloud pages and they're always sweet. Edge Habitat is no exception. An hour of Drum & Bass and Jungle, ranging from ambient and smooth to hype and noisy, all mixed pretty quickly (21 tracks in an hour!).

This is all a long way of saying: I think this mix is great, and if you like my taste in music I think you'll like his too. So I suggest you give it a listen.
