Call Me (and Vote)

Today is Election day! (happy b-day keevs!) Don't forget to vote! It's also a great excuse to call that special someone and remind them to vote, catch up, or just say hi. Here's a little something I cooked up last night that you can play all day to help you remember to call them (and vote)...

Turtles for Obama

Funny bug when I sent out the canned email thing on my.barackobama.com. It somehow swapped half of the names and emails I entered. Which means, Blair is getting an email addressed to Kim. And Hannah is getting an email addressed to Ben. Weird.

Black Tie Elephant Videos

Black Tie Elephant has a myspace page with 2 rough demos you can preview.

Also Rahul posted some videos from our last show on YouTube. The quality is decent, although sometimes the levels are off.

Brendan's Week - o - Chi music

Last week Brendan went to a show every day at a different venue to explore and learn more about the Chicago scene. I went with him to 5 of the shows. Check out his writeups at: NOT Danville days

From the dusty old files of A. Suave and Q. Perav...

New picsound by Kaveh Ardalan! Check it out here.

Last January Kaveh sent me a picsound that had been inspired by an SF blackout about three or four years prior. I didn't want to post it until I did a little housekeeping with the rest of the picsounds (they've all been broken since last January, too). Anyway, apologies to the K.A. and to denying the world from hearing/seeing it. Wicked stuff.

You may also note that the rest of the picsounds finally work too! Some of them haven't been loading right, or don't load, etc.

Even Max's Day Off works now, which for the past 3 years has stopped playing halfway through!

Well holleeee-crap!

For one week only, you can stream Blip Festival: Reformat the Planet, a documentary filmed by Asif - yes - the great Sadisky! himself. Congrats to him, Paul Owens, and the rest of the crew. It's great to see good peoples getting the respect and attention they deserve. No doubt this is just the beginning...

After having attended last year's Blip Fest, I'd be lying if the Chiptune scene in New York didn't have an affect on me. I was really struck by how much energy the music had. And while I can't say I am as hardcore as these guys programming directly on their old gameboys, I can say that I do have an admiration from starting from raw waveforms and building up interesting sounds and songs. Hipshooter was definitely influenced by these ideas.

Thanks!

Thanks for those who showed support at the BTE loft show. Rahul is takin' off tomorrow so it was great getting a chance to play before he left. We might try and continue the BTE tradition with some new members, I'll be sure to keep you all posted. We definitely need to create a myspace or something for BTE.
