To the Coast!

I am headed out early today for a short trip to the coast and I am ready! I have been uber stressed lately working on all the new records and need a little refresher. There's something kind of magical about it there, I always come back feeling a billion times better...until Monday!
lots of shows tonight with lots of krs/5rc bands past and present spread out across the usa...

if you are in portland, oregon you should go see the new bloods w/ explode into colors and yellow fever at dekum manor.
if you are in new york city you should obviously go to the free deerhoof show at prospect park because it's free and they're going to play songs from their excellent new album (you can also listen on a bunch of npr affiliates and online at, by the way) and then take the subway (or a few, i didn't look up online) to cake shop for the mae shi and imaad wasif show...
if you are in anacortes, wa for what the heck fest owl and the pussycat are playing a rare show... you remember them right? lois and greg moore?

Vinyl Mastering / Timing Guidelines

I found this interesting since I do is the time guidelines for vinyl mastering ( this is just one mastering house's perspective )...

Timing Guidelines:

Speed: 33 1/3 rpm

12” Single
10:00-12:00 = Great
12:00-14:00 = Good

12” LP
15:00-18:00 = Great
18:00-20:00 = Very Good
20:00-22:00 = Good
22:00-24:00 = Fair
Above 24:00 = If you insist.

They don’t sound good but I’ll do it.
0:00-7:00 min

Speed: 45 rpm

12” Single
6:00-8:00 = Great
8:00-10:00 = Good

12” LP
12:00-15:00 = Great
15:00-18:00 = Good

3:00-3:30 = Great
3:30-4:00 = Good
4:00-4:30 = Fair
4:30 & up = I’d rather cut it low at 45 than at 33 1/3.

Amazing Deerhoof video

I just found this on YouTube. Sooo good! It makes me wish I was going to New York to see them on Friday, I am a dummy...

MTV loves Portland

shuff shuff shuff

is this dumb?
i saw this in a magazine.
they asked people in bands to shuffle their ipods and write what came up
it seemed clear that people were editing their answers to not seem lame or to seem lame.
i am lame. and i am not lame.
i bought a couch with monkeys on it today.
oh crap i just did this and i swear to God the first thing that came up was a new xiu xiu demo. wow there is nothing lamer than that. this really did happen though.
it will not be on the list to prove that it really did happen.
the rest is also true. if more bullshit xiu xiu demos come up they will be on the list just not the first one.
wow it is really hard to not sound like the southern california not matter how hard i try. hi!!!!!!!

Summer is my favorite season but for some reason this year I can't sleep at all. It might have something to do with the new house and all the bedrooms facing east? I seem to wake up with the sun in my eye quite early no matter what. It also might have something to do with throwing my back out last Sunday afternoon (picking up after Jackson sadly).

Tired or not the Summer activities must go on! Tonight I will be Djing at Dunes with Whalebones and The Winebirds and will be trying my hardest to start the dance party:
