EMS
Growing up programming games for the Commodore 64 operating systems sparked Stephen Machnowski's interest in building his own electronic sound experiences, specifically synthesizers. He uses home-built synths and drum machines for his E.M.S. (Electro Music Specialist) project . Influenced by electronic beats he heard in new wave and the electro and rap breakdancers favored, Machnowski plays a robotic style of neo-electro that caught the attention of the Satamile label.

    Doppleganger!

    The Doppleganger has long been a mystery, but now consider it solved. "A double, an identical replica of a person.. The idea behind this is that everyone has a Doppleganger, an identical copy of themselves somewhere in the world.. If the person is good, then the Doppleganger will be evil and vice versa.. It is even said that if the two should meet, then they will both perish.Although there is no evidence that Dopplegangers exist, some people have actually reported claims of witnessing what they believe to be their Doppleganger.

    House Show Rules #2: Bringing Common Sense

    I had intended to post this as a comment following the "House Show Rules #1: No Jerks!" blogpost, but then it sorta became an essay.. Boom Boom Kid @ the Sea Shanty, 2007.. As someone who's thrown a few hundred shows in houses over the last decade and a half, I gotta say that house-show hosts must be aware of the risks of turning their home into a public space, such as cops, assholes, theft, electrical fire, damage to walls and floors, giant messes to clean up, and even violence.. The solution is not so simple as complaining about jerks on a corner of the internet (such as here!) which will go unchecked by likely every such jerk who needs to check their attitude.The solution surely begins with considering what risks are associated with each show before you even confirm it.

They have agreed to give us a brand new box which hopefully takes care of the problems where the uh..site just goes dead for a few hours at a time, or becomes really slow and unresponsive.The plan is for the transfer to happen in the wee hours of East Coast time but who know what will play out..

    We Fucked-Up and Deleted ALL The Flyers...

    Yep, it's true!All 19,637 flyers went kaputznik and made a super bye-bye action with no recycle bin love of any kind.I am uber careful and paranoid of these things and still manage to pull an epic maneuver like this about once a year. -Last year whilst working on a client site, i deleted the entire four-year calendar set for *two* site for the Solano County Library.. YEAH BUDDY.Yep, So - where we're at now is that i quickly dropped $43 to get some magic (Slingblade)"Should'nta done that boy" software so as i can try to get back the deleted info off the hard drive. -IT was a half win.. I think we got back most of the files but there seems to be an issue where the files that came back did so with different data or whatever : The file names no longer match the actual show info they should contain so SHIT IS BANANANANAS all over the site right now.I have since found a version of the flyers folder in our old svn repo from about 6-weeks ago when we made some reconfiguration changes.. I, in all my awesomeness, didn't get these two flyer related folders back into svn sync (because we're virtualizing the directories to share the data with other sites, NERD stuff..) and totally blew the gun in the face.It's okay though.

    Ich Bin der Shit, Bitches!

    I just got back from a drinking tour of Scandinavia which you know was fucking awesome.. I was hanging out with some rad Germans and of course drinking often leads to youtube so we shared a few gems.. I gave them the gift that is Chuggo and what they offered up just blew my mind.. Here, i share with you, the most hardcore gangstarr motherfucker keeping Deutschland real: Moneyboy.I'm not even capable of putting words around this legend on the mic so i'll leave it to Moneyboy himself "ich bin der Shit - Bitches"Money Boy - "Dreh den Swag auf"I might suggest waiting until you've had 9 or 12 beers before jumping into the vid - so, you know, you FULLY appreciate it.
