So, last night was my first live DJ set ever and I whipped together a fairly upbeat and eclectic mix for the occasion (KBGA 89.9 College Radio’s 11th Birthday). The room didn’t really start filling up until near the end of my set, but that was ok with me, I was nervous at the beginning and it was nice not to have too many people looking at me. Anyway, everything went smoothly with the mix and the sound in the place was clear and loud. I am purportedly signed up to do a longer set some time in November, so if that actually happens I’ll make sure and post that up here.

Also, my new radio show, Ink Mathematics, is on wednesday nights from 6-8 on KBGA if you happen to live in Missoula. I’ll probably be posting segments from that show up on this site each week.

As a child my parents gave me absolute free reign over the television and I would spend hours upon hours watching MTV, back when it was good and they actually had music videos. There was one video in particular, Peter Gabriel’s “shock the Monkey”, that used to make me absolutely nuts and I would watch MTV for hours in hopes of seeing it. To see a music artist act in their own video really builds my appreciation for them. I heard that Peter Gabriel nearly died from hypothermia from doing the lake scenes in this video, what commitment!

    The G-Harv sound system will most definitely be tuned to 89.9 this evening.

    I watched Shock the monkey this afternoon. Yeah, I think most professional therapists could probably diagnose Peter Gabriel with something after just watching this video.

    My new favorite video is this one by Royksopp. Intensely nerdy.
