Plus, all the good things in life are free:

Another one here I haven't had a chance to listen to yet:

The first ten minutes of this is sweet ("Contrast"!) but I habitually skip ahead to "Sansula" (far superior to the original tbh). The 25-odd minutes between that and "Mi Pieza Llena De Cosas" are pretty much the summer techno mix I would have tried to make right now anyway... kind of, Border Community hauls its pasty English ass to the beach (Ryanair microtrance?). Watch the speedometer if you drive on the highway to this.

Meanwhile, uploaded some tracks for tonight's radio show here here (Marianne Faithfull, PJ Harvey, Youssou N'Dour...). And some Dominik Eulberg in the parent folder. I am pretty sure "Wenn Es Perlen Regnet" was the twinkly bit James Holden was playing at Piknic, which only goes to show as Eulberg himself did nothing of the sort. It was very BOOMBOOMBOOMBOOM with decided peaks and breakdowns. And then he played (his own remix?) of "Emerge", and all the ancient ppl in the audience cracked the hell up eg. me, the guy working the official video camera, etc. And then I got to meet Eulberg totally by accident as wandered behind the tents looking for a friend just as dude came down and was collared by half a dozen enthusiastic fanboys in a row.

Let's see if this works:

Who wants to bet Ted Chiang would willingly big up Owen Pallett back? I mean, by day dude is a Asian-American technical writer in the computer industry, right? Who else listens to Final Fantasy, that and MLISes amirite

Children, Wake Up: 20th Century Boys FST

tracklisting )

This is the one I lost via computer upgrade in 2006 or so and had to reconstruct. As such my files are too scattered for easy upload but a listenable version has been cobbled together via 8tracks. Mostly rock, of course, though I intentionally avoided Bob Dylan and so on. XD;

I've also uploaded the Mononoke FST for easy streaming access.
petronia: (more cowbell)

8tracks sinks to a new low every time I go back and look at it: now the mix descriptions aren't allowed to be longer than 140 characters. >:[ I guess they're trying to keep people from doing tracklistings, shock horror vapours, but there are smarter ways to handle that. Was Muxtape only a year ago? It seems much longer.

Anyway, I'm just going to do this the way I usually do. XD;

September 2009 Mix

master impressionist of post-clubbing tinnitus - first time I heard anyone say "big up to Dylan" and mean Jakob - reminiscent of Etienne De Crécy's "Fast Track (Vocal Version)" except uhh not fast - per ILM, genre apparently called "wonky" :| - meanwhile the proper DM single is remixed by Peter Bjorn and John - ppl did warn me Damon Albarn would never go away - waiting on genre-of-moment remixes now, analogous to Depeche circa "Precious" - master impressionist of staying home but awake at 5AM anyway

8tracks randomizes the tracks after the first play by a given user, but instead of abandoning the damned software like a sensible being I find myself treating the limitation as an aesthetic challenge, i.e. trying to come up with playlists that sound just as good on shuffle as in the intended order. This is one of the reasons I stick to the minimum eight tracks, another being that I don't have patience for mixes that run past 40 minutes anyway.

  • 20:49 and here's where to find it, in /some/ form: #
  • 23:06 actually, I have learnt from this that Girl Talk is only Girl Talk by night; by day he is a bio-medical engineer named Gregg. #
  • 23:10 which for the purposes of the film is kind of brill, as it allowed him to talk about the impact of IP restrictions on both his personae #
  • 23:12 copyright law as relative to the Superhero, and patent law relative to the Cover Identity #
  • 23:31 actually, I tend to be irritated by the "copyleftist" sense of cheap outrage - young-people-who-geddit-versus-the-old-fogies-in-suits - #
  • 23:33 as a total lack of /emotional/ concern for artists' moral rights just comes across as entitlement... but that doesn't mean they're wrong #
  • 23:34 it just means that the attitude of a previous generation was to criticize Led Zeppelin for ripping off Muddy Waters, #
  • 23:35 whereas the attitude of /this/ generation is to hold said fact up as a precedent for their moral right to sample Led Zep without paying #
  • 23:38 if I wrote a novel and it didn't inspire ficcers and fanartists to start appropriating, I'd feel like I was getting it wrong #
  • 23:39 but I doubt I'd think like that if I /didn't/ come up through fan culture, because I'm a control freak with my creative work #
  • 23:41 as it is, I think artists have every right to be offended at unofficial "remixes" of their work, but not necessarily the right to stop them #
  • 23:42 call it a hunch, but I doubt Leonardo da Vinci would've been enthused about what Duchamp did here #
  • 23:49 then again, even Lars Ulrich is sort of coming around #
  • 23:50 good thing the film touched on scientific patents, though, as I think that's more important in the grand scheme of things #
  • 23:52 back to brand hegemony: apparently, retailers all want in on Montreal because Montrealers spend 9.4% of their disposable income on clothes #

Petronia Radio has been off the air for a week. The feed from to Twitter works fine, the LoudTwitter feed doesn't - and I can't figure out what's wrong with it. ^_^; I'm guessing a casualty of the LJ server move. Anyway I'm still alive, here if you have blip, and here if you have Twitter. BTW when you guys friend me could you drop me a note one way or the other, the fashion is not to pick the same username as LJ and I often have absolutely no idea who you are. XD; There's a lot of spambots too, and stuff. OTOH if your username is the same on as it is on Twitter @[user] replies are replicated through the feed, which is neat.

As I say I don't really like the idea of turning my LJ into a feed, it's ridiculously self-indulgent but at least it's proof of life. I leave comments too; it's just posting I don't have the gumption for, because I put too much effort into it under normal circumstances.

Didn't get around to finalizing this until just now (made it three weeks ago).

Been replaying a lot of mid- to late-nineties stuff - songs I didn't own but that were on the radio and part of one's general consciousness at the time. Trying to make a point about how various sounds are making a return IMO: in uncertain times one turns to Lauryn Hill, or something along those lines. I was reading The Beautiful Fall to cheer me up but all it did was give me anxiety dreams about being cut by Hank Paulson at a house party(!). EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: high fashion is like one of those BL manga-verses where 95% of everyone is gay. Also, was that photo of Karl Lagerfeld in the one-piece swimsuit w/ plunging neckline really necessary? Really? FUGBACK TO THE FUTURE.

Currently watching this and frothing with rage because they keep cutting away from the good stuff (Robyn DJing BV3 and Erasure! Lindstrom backing Earth Wine and Fire!) to the inadvisable (terrible afterhours DJs, terrible tuneless indie, terribly dressed hipsters posing in front of the Diesel logo wall. When did this logo wall thing at parties start? It feels like it couldn't have been more than two years ago. I try not to be like "I hate contemporary pop culture" because it just comes off old and grumpy but sometimes I hate contemporary pop culture).
petronia: (dot dot dot)
One of those reunion thingies they do from time to time. I am trying not to make fun but it is hard. )

Here's a question: is 8tracks not supposed to play tracks in the order in which they're placed? Because they've always done so for me, insofar as I know. ^^;
petronia: (candy)

It was going to be either entirely hipster disco or entirely acoustic guitar noodling. Hipster disco won out... FOR NOW??

Should probably have gone for the Midnight Meat Train adaptation but it'll live without me, methinks. XD

The Moss [trailer]: Ced had the impression this was much longer than the 90 minutes it was. The brutality can certainly be gruelling - no clean gunshot deaths in this one, all digging implements to the skull - but for some reason it didn't leave the unpleasant aftertaste these things usually do. Maybe it's the dark fairytale aspect (the trailer makes it look more like a conventional mob thriller and less like the quasi-Carteresque Beauty and the Beast riff it actually is), or the fact that it's beautifully shot and edited, and the actors have faces that hold the gaze.

I have to say, though, and not just about this movie - the recurring "Indian illegals who are psychotic machine-gun wielding rapists" trope is seriously wigging me out. I've been watching, on average, a few HK triad movies every year at Fantasia since the late 90's, and the genre's reflected a shifting palette of anxieties: the handovers of Hong Kong and Macau, the rise of competitive Southeast Asian economies, the influx of cheap and/or illegal labour from the mainland... It's a dark and un-PC glass, but assuming it is still a glass, the zeitgeist right now is a massive upswell of xenophobia (always unfortunately latent in Chinese culture). And frankly I haven't the slightest clue what's going on in reality.


petronia muxtape will be revamped pretty soon, as they've upped the file size limit to 24MB - finally, an end to discrimination against fans of 15-minute techno cuts! \o/

Other recs from my favorites list:

soulfonicsource: for people who like to listen to minimal at work, with a bit of melodic indie woven seamlessly in. Soothing and gorgeous.

narie: has gone pink. (Possibly I have never actually heard "Stars Are Blind" before? I didn't know it was ska. Er... >_> Speaking of which, eventually I'll figure out which Pizzicato Five song Lily Allen is pakuri-ing there.)

ricforsale: the other other Brit indie + jpop fan on muxtape.
