They have a new interface, and you know what? I am thoroughly loving it. There goes my paycheck!

As soon as possible I will be opening my new and weblog. TheBeatMonger concept started as a couple DJs in Florida looking for some good beats to peddle to the masses. It was and still is disorganized because life happens while you plan. I have some free time to rework my writing into a new project that deals with our longing for escape through media and goes far beyong the scope of this blog.

A timeline? I'm not a Senator so I can't promise anything I can not deliver so it is ready when it is ready. I should get back to work now. Chew on this while dinner is cooking.



Data Smog

When I look at the list of music I have bought/downloaded (guilty as charged) / or ripped, I sometimes get a little asphyxiated with what David Shenk calls Data Smog.

I suppose I'm an information asthmatic. It is hard to remain productive, be that selecting new music for the season or keeping track of RSS feeds, or even remembering my passwords.

I however am confident in saying that my information smog cannot begin to compare with Beijing's real smog. And since I am not hosting any Olympics anytime soon, my net-coughing is just a blip on the Inbox.


Eagle vs. Goat

Happy Hardcore is the goat here.


Buddha is Watching You

Interesting technique. The painting is concave. The would make for some interesting deco at a party. What do you think?


We Love You George Carlin

One of my favorite comedians, and philosophers, of all time. George has influenced so many people with his raunchy thought provoking quips. I feel so lucky to have finally gotten a chance to see him live last year. RESPECT.

What You Can Do For Music?

You do what you can, but food comes first (most of the time). As you may or not have noticed, I haven't really been posting much lately, and I attribute that to my preparations to outsource myself.

What if I could work in a geographically independent manner? My preference is a nice secluded beach in Costa Rica next to a nice beach-house-club and decent sound equipment to throw some sandy parties

So I tirelessly toggle Ideas noting what sticks to the pan as I consult pen-pals (remember those days?) for feasibility.

What if I start a blog about outsourcing myself...but of course continue this one which will only happen if and when I make some more free time...

Right now I sit in a cubicle (an open one, mind you)...

...Sitting through a shitty band
Getting dog shit on my hands
Getting hassled by the man
Waking up to an alarm
Sticking needles in your arm
Picking up trash on a freeway
Feeling depressed everyday
Leaving without making a sound
Picking my dog at the pound
Living in a tweeker pad
Getting yelled at by my dad
Saying I'm happy when I'm not
Finding roaches in the pot
All these things I do
They're waiting for you
(Sublime - Garden Grove lyrics)

...or not

Blue it up on South Beach

I would like to thank my buddy Francisco (Arjuna / Franz Martins) and the cool crowd at Blue for the hospitality and great music.

Francisco and I opened the night with a two-hour minimal blast. Let me put it this way: I had so much fun that I completely forgot to take pictures! Francisco filmed some of the mix, and I have to get my hands on it ASAP to post here.
