everyone has their price
Item: Geoff McFetridge is a visual artist/graphic designer, and he seems pretty awesome. His work
is meticulous, smart and funny. He's done a series of figurines that reference his own t-shirt work, rendering both the depicted object and the t-shirt object. The clevering is delicious.
Item: For those of you long on time, here's a seventy-five minute mix from optimo, kindred spirits of the mighty dfa and the best dj team in scotland.Optimo- Banging in Belgium
It sounds like it's been put together with abelton live five, a loop-based production software application that's been co-opted as a dj tool. The passage around 12 minutes is especially good, with the 'hung up' acapella floating over three or more instrumentals. Optimo is rumored to have a new comercial mix out before the end of the year, which is 'ace,' which means good (i think). Their previous efforts, How to Kill the DJ Part 2
and Psyche Out,
are highly recommended.
