I just finished reading "New York 2140" by Kim Stanley Robinson. It's a well-written book; a good book. I did not enjoy it. I bounced off it pretty hard.

I think what I disliked is that the book seemed to simply stop about once every thirty pages to tell you something interesting about New York. (Or about Economics). It killed the pacing for me.

Los Hermanos' song "The Very Existence" set to footage from the movie Mac And Me:

Lots of Detroit techno. A bit of house, a bit of ambient-ish techno. Kind of messily mixed; I could use more practice with these tracks.

The music is good, though. Particularly those two Los Hermanos tracks...

Movement Through Thought on starts in 30 minutes. My program airs every Friday 6:30 to 7:30 UTC.

I'm going to mash together some techno tonight, mostly Detroit. UR, Transmat, Axis. But also a track or two from that excellent John Beltran that was given away last month.

I reworked my shelves recently, so here's a photo.

Some day I'll learn how to take a clear photo. Probably the day I pick up a tripod.

when youre young, u have a lot of energy & drive and ur impatient, so u never end up finishing anything. when you get older u gain patience, the patience required to never start anything

I have this feeling that I've forgotten something I did wrong in the recent past.

I'm sure there's a word for that. I wonder what it is.

Loose mixing and selection, but good tracks. Electro at ~120 BPM, not too aggressive. Ended with GD Luxxe & Solvent's "Quiet Life", which is a favorite of mine.

My show on starts in 30 minutes. Movement Through Thought airs every Friday 6:30 to 7:30 UTC.

I think I'm going to take it easy tonight and play electro. Long tracks, mostly the same tempo. Delayscape, Carl Finlow, a couple of tracks off Brokntoys.

My best Strikers 1945 score last night was 494,600. Played two decent games four bad ones.

Not my best score, but good enough to make me feel better after playing like garbage last month.

I'm heading into Portland today. Will stop by Powells, maybe buy a pair of shoes. Then on to the arcade.

The 20 and 57 Trimet bus lines are on their new 24-hour schedules. Those are the exact two busses I need to get home, so I'm looking forward to that.

I'll report back with a Strikers 1945 score.

"If you had to recommend someone play 5 games to really get a feel for you/your tastes, what five would you pick?"

1. Quake (SP, QW duel on Aerowalk)
2. Quake 3: CPMA
3. Strikers 1945
4. Shadowrun (SNES)
5. Morrowind

Just video games. Off the top of my head.

Dubstep, Juke, Miami Bass. Lots of music from Om Unit's record label Cosmic Bridge. A weird mixture. Super fun to mix though; I danced like a total fool.

Movement Through Thought on starts in 30 minutes. The show airs every Friday 6:30 to 7:30 UTC.

Bass month ends tonight with a mash of ~80 BPM music. I'll be playing Juke, Miami Bass, and selections from Om Unit's label Cosmic Bridge.

Listen at anonradio.net/listen .

I'm mega tired. Good show, much bass. Lots of ORCH5 and random vocal samples saying "Bass!".

I played three of the worst games of Strikers 1945 ever. I swear, just terrible. I think the best I did was a death on 1-3 with a score of 250,000. Definitely need more practice.

I think this is the tenth August in a row I've played bass music at Ground Kontrol.

Ten years of bass month.
