The Last Mix Tape

tape

Ever since I’ve known Alex (which is a very long time) he’s had a crate of these that have followed him into every domicile he’s ever inhabited. Even long after he ability to burn things to cd or create playlists in iTunes. In his post on his youthful mix tape habit he at long last delves into the personal matter of collection addiction, and the result is a kick ass mix of songs from the 80s.

The music is buried deep in the text, but it’s there and worth the dig.

Clockwork: (n)eXt podcast, electronica tonight, and new events!

Clockwork is for lovers

(The podcast is at the end, so scroll down if you’re in a hurry for some aural relief.)

Okay, so I told you ’bout the walrus and me man? You know we moved our Monday set to Friday nights (6-8 pm SL)? Well, here’s another clue you can mull, the walrus was Hulk. And Esteban/Hulk will be dj’ing Mondays at Clockwork playing a wider range of favorites and plenty o’ rock. Don’t worry, the funk will still happen on Friday nights, it just means there won’t be a hole in the schedule on Monday. Not only that, Clockwork has added KONA radio dj GoSpeed Racer to our Monday lineup from 4-6 pm to warm up the crowd before Esteban (and to provide a happy hour for those of you who have the live music open mic Mondays bug, yeah, you know who you are).

So now there is music at Clockwork six days a week (I’m still holding Saturday night open for special events), and lots of slots open before 6-8 for any djs in a European time zone, or later for those of you out west or on the Pacific Rim. (Hint, hint.) If you’re a dj looking for a gig and think you might fit in at Clockwork, point me toward a podcast or drop a notecard on my profile with a playlist from a recent set. Please don’t ask me to come hear you live; as much as I’d like to, my RL schedule prohibits me from many extracurricular activities.

(n)eXt Podcast and keTchUp’s kitchen table rant

Clockwork is for lovers

This is a two hour set and I probably should have broken it up into a couple of sections, but oh well. It should stream fine, and if you’re downloading, I hope your connection is fast and smooth. Some weeks, there is just so much I want to get out because there is that much great new music—and I know there’s a terabyte of even fresher sounds coming down the tubes.

If you like what you hear, please buy some music to help support the artists. I think our entire system of “support” for the arts is fucked, but until some unlikely sweeping changes occur, I am a staunch centrist on the music downloading issue. What this means—and this is by no means a legal argument–is that I think the record companies and artists should stfu and not prosecute people who download music even though they have legal standing. It’s just smart business in the long run. In return, people who listen to music should realize that they are participating in a cultural community and whether or not they also make music themselves, they need to do things to support that community. Really support it. This means if you download even one song for free, I believe you should be putting a lot more than the $0.99 iTunes or $0.33 eMusic value back into the community. How do you do that?

1. Buy some music. Duh. Get an eMusic subscription. Support Bleep. Support CD Baby and AmpCamp. Support your local mom and pop store—those people are music geeks just like the rest of us and they run those places because of love and obsession, not to maximize profits for shareholders.

2. Go see live music, especially small venues. Buy music and t-shirts directly from the bands, even if they were mediocre. Doing this keeps them in peanut butter and socks.

3. Tell all your friends about the great bands you discover.

4. Lather, rinse, repeat.

If you download more than one song, you should think about supporting the music and arts community in the following ways: Booking bands to play local venues (your party at your mom’s house, rent the American Legion Hall, help bring good bands to the local dive bar); when small touring acts come through town, make sure they have a place to sleep (your apartment floor is way better than the van, and partying with the band rules); or start an indie label, a promotions company, or write a music blog—do anything that churns the butter and gets people excited. If you do these things, you’re putting back just a bit of what you owe.

What does this mean for Second Life? Same thing. Do it all in both places. No slacking, we’re all in this together and life is better with art.
