This Is The Re-Mux

April 3, 2008 Comments off

Thanks to a Twitter post from Sarah Lane I got hipped to a site called MuxTape, where you can upload your MP3’s and make a “mix tape” to share with your friends over the internets. It’s kind of like You Tube but for music, and it lets you create a play list so that you can set the song order.

I gotta tell you that I’m lovin the concept, being a DJ I have come across plenty of songs that I’ve wanted to share with others. Unfortunately other than having them buy the CD solely on my recommendation or illegally download the song (something that I would never endorse) I haven’t really found a good way do this… until now!

So I’ve taken the liberty of uploading a couple of songs that I’ve remixed or extended for play in the club. Most of them stem from the original being just way too damn short to get away with playing or from the “No Rap Rule” we have. So keep in mind that these songs were intended to be played in a strip club and have hot stripper chicks dancing to them while they play… hehehe

Admittedly I’m no professional when it comes to remixing a song, but I’m kinda proud of what I’ve been able to do so far, and inevitably whenever I play one in the club someone always asks about it. Always makes me feel good when something I did just to satisfy the curiosity of rather I could do it or not gets me a little praise from total strangers. I’m generally a shy person, but when you get me in the DJ booth I love to show off, and in a gentleman’s club if you can get the customers to shift their attention from the ½ naked woman on the stage to the 300 lbs Mexican guy in the DJ booth… you’ve gotta be doing something!

Anyway, without further a due… here’s my MuxTape and the play list:

AFI – Prelude 12/21
Digital Underground – April Showers
Kid Rock & Metallica – American Bad Ass (Sad But True)
I.C.P. – Fire Rain

Lockdown

OK, yea I’m still alive. *lol* So where have I been you may ask. Well that’s not such a long story, and I aim to tell ya… those fuckin iPods are evil! I’ve spent the better part of a month building my iToons library, obsessively ripping every DVD I own, editing the ID3 tags for damn near every goddamned Mp3 I have, and manually getting the album art for every fuckin movie and song in my library (before I realized that iToons will do that for you automatically if you register an account).

I’ve neglected almost everything in my personal life, my office is a shambles, I haven’t so much as dusted my toy collection, and other than checking the stats to my blog every once and a while, I haven’t done anything on the computer in weeks. Seriously: Why the fuck do I need to have every episode of Babylon 5 in Mp4 format? Do I really need to carry around all seven seasons of Deep Space 9 in my pocket? And I just finished watching every episode of Entourage, in order, less than a month ago!

*Fuckin OCD*

Geeezus, if you have OCD or even OCD-like tendencies, seriously stay the fuck away from these things they’ll destroy your life. I’ve turned into some sleep deprived audio/video-phile fruit cup. I stay up all night, until I can’t keep my eyes open anymore, ripping movies, I haven’t shut my laptop off since x-mas, and whenever I’m away from it; I have my iPod on… I sleep with the damn thing on for fucks sake!

So what snapped my outta my self imposed iPod isolation? Go-Bots! That’s right, those little generic half-assed transformer wannabe toys from the 80s. While waiting for a movie to download (legally, of coarse), I found an auction on eBay for the Go-Bots Power-Suit Combiner: Grungy with the box, Styrofoam, and enough bots to fill the suits for what I thought was a good price, so I did the “Buy It Now” and now I’m eagerly awaiting a package in the mail (LOL). But that got me thinking about some of the Go-Bots I had as a kid, and started looking for some of them too.

That brings me to my current dilemma. Much like Transformers, Go-Bots were originally sold under another name in Asia, Machine Robo, before they were re-branded and brought over to the States. I found the Japanese version of one of my favorite Go-Bots, Mint In the Box (MIB), from a toy store in Asia for a decent price and now I’m trying to figure out how to finagle enough money to snag him up before somebody else does. I don’t have too many bots that I want to part with, but I’ve been playing with the idea of selling my G.I. Joe collection to get enough money to buy him. I’ve got the entire 25th Anniversary line (Mint On the Card) all the way up to wave 5, including all of the variants except Snake Eyes with the black Timber, that should net me enough to pay for it plus some.

I really haven’t had much of an interest in them lately, but I don’t know if it’s because I haven’t been able to find them for a while or if it’s because I’ve genuinely lost interest in them. I originally wanted to get the complete line and keep them all MISB/MOSC, but I’ve been looking at all of the planned releases for the line, and those little buggers are gonna break me. It was fine when I thought they were just going to be a filler line until the next line was ready for production, but they’re starting to look like they may be Hasbro’s main line for a while. I’ve got the entire line pre-ordered through BBTS all the way up to wave 7, along with all the comic book 2 packs, and I can see these getting really expensive in the future.

On the other hand, I’ve got a really good start on the line and if I sell what I’ve already got, I may never be able to afford to get them back.

It’s a stupid thing to have to worry about, especially with the economy the way it is and all, but… DAMN IT, I REALLY WANT THAT BOT!
