Summer to Fall

So many little time. I would love to be a professional Marcello in "La Dolce Vita." But alas, a real job beckons so I will have to put that on the back burner.

I'm all about this right now:
-Bryan Adams: Playing this Thursday in town, going to try and make it, the catalog is amazing
-the UK (for so many reasons):
1) Upcoming Trip with The Prayers myspace
2) That trips potential offerings
3) pre-Xmas trip with Jennifer
4) The general love of the place
-Books from French Authors
-MCFC's miraculous run
-Colder Weather
-Turzi (a musical group)
-ING Direct / Orange Savings

I'm not into this right now:
-Alan McGee's tude: Still so fuckin hip...sheesh
-CMJ: really not what it was, or what it should be
-my internet connection
-loud neighbors
-meaningless blogposts (like this one)

It's Hot: THE TUSS

Nothing like glitchy electronica! I'm all about The Tuss right now. Rumors reveal that The Tuss is 95% likely to be the Aphex Twin. Brilliant, I love me some Richard D James and anything associated with the man. One of the few artists I really really really want to see live and have never seen.

So the wikipedia genie seems to reveal that The Tuss (wiki) is really the Aphex Twin due to the use of the Yamaha GX1 (wiki) which was originally debuted in 1973 and there are only 10 of them in the world, costing $60,000 each (if you can find one for sale). Not to mention the Yamaha is a few hundred pounds. Get your glitch on, via Rephlex Records (Aphex's very own label) with the "Rushup Edge" CD/Vinyl.
