  1. Lol - I went to high school with Ron Watkins. He was 2 grades older than I, but indeed he was a choir dork and in barbershop quartet. His creepy ass Dad used to chaperone the combined symphony/choir trips and I remember his weird face. He was friends with a girl I wanted to hook up with so I ate more than a few lunches with him and her friends. He was SUPER into the Matrix in high school and was a relatively nice and social dude. IDK where the fork in the road came. Watching that doc was surreal, I had to remember where I had seen him before and it wasn't until my sister brought out the yearbook that I confirmed I had indeed interacted with him many times in the past. Small world.
  2. God, could you imagine how fucked up my kids would be if someone let me homeschool them? You can teach them ANYTHING. Grade 1-5:: Math is witchcraft, music actually has 13-23 tone scales, 6 hours daily of masonry for my new BBQ pit, gardening classes, learning ONLY the 'Bosnian' version of events from 1992-1996 in history, daily judo lessons. They'd be warriors. But IDK how fit they'd be for the real world. (to anyone concerned, I don't have kids ((most likely cant)) so no worries, I can only fuck up my cats)
  3. I watched the new Avengers on a plane flight. It was a movie. Nothing good to say so I'll confirm it is, indeed, a movie.
  4. RE: Buying farm in Bumfuck USA -- I want that specific microclimate and seasonal photoperiod(s) in the area I described. I know my farm'n well n' good, sir. Also, as much as I don't really love the government of Mexico, I'm super tired of living here. Foreigners owning land not as weird and difficult as it used to be, especially in more agricultural spots. I know a few folks who have properties down there. IDK how it works, but there are ways about it, especially if it isn't in the super in-vogue tourist spots/cities. Just go with me on this man. I don't need reality on this one. 🙂

    The Tuss

    The pad-ish organ synth-ish sound on Goodbye Rute that comes in @ 1:39 is one of my top 10 aphex sounds/synths. 2:14-3:27 on Fredugolon 6 is absolute master wizardry. In general amazing on both albums, so many little things. It's like audio porn on all the tracks. The Tuss is next to Analord in my top two Aphex eras. Can't say enough good things about those albums. Masterpieces.
  6. Huh... Well, I mean--I can't say I'd be upset at the whole dismantling capitalism thing. But those later parts seem like there'd be a lot more... issues with the whole changing everyone everywhere thing, don't ya think?
  7. My GAS as of lately is all normal stuff. Normal as in not synths or drum machines. I've been wanting a new electric bass, some hang drums, a buncha mic's, a new drum kit and field recording stuff. Got enough synths and samples and drum machines and effects and shit.. but I figured out 10 years in that I like to just make stuff. Make stuff as in:: Learning production in the likes of "IDM" and electronic stuff expanded my knowledge as a musician/producer so damn much. But looking back I spent my whole childhood/teen years playing 7+ instruments in classes for band, orchestra, percussion ensemble -- doing jazz guitar, marching band drumline, junior symphony percussion stuff. I honestly yearn to make stuff sound humanized by doing/playing it myself, not automating the shit out of a bassline lol. Using what I learned to go back has been more fun than making what I've made for the last few years being purely synthesized IDK why I'm sharing that, just good to pass on revelations like a weirdo here.
  8. Anyone wanna catch me up on this China thing? They're destined to consume us all, correct? I picked Russian to learn in high school because I thought we were gonna be reds by 2007, but looking back Chinese would've made way more sense. Oh well.
  9. I can't stop fantasizing about liquidating my assets, quitting my taxing corporate job and buying farmland in the dry jungles/hills of Mexico somewhat close to the Ocean. Year-round growing season for food, everything is cheap AF, can have a pool in the yard, can be waaay more sustainable food/farming/permaculture wise... all of these things sound great. All I wanna do is chill and become slightly more 3rd world... that's my 1st world problemo du jour, my hombres
  10. Bought me the vinyl. Super happy Tom and WARP put this one out. I've wanted it on wax for a long time. Still probably my favorite SP album. At least top 2-3 for sure.
  11. Some stuff I took a while back while on acid and climbing slimy limestone cliff things turned out neat
  12. Just got shot numero dos, Pfizer variety. I’m now 100% into dudes. Gotta go break it to the GF. No side effects tho
  13. Hey just gonna drop in here because it’s getting tense and I know we all know capitalist whizz-boy Bill Gates is getting a divorce. I wanted to let everyone know I am going to continue to get Melinda Gates to pay me as a boy-toy. I’m down for some real weird shit so long as I get loaded up. If successful, I will have not only acquired millions for the therapy I will eventually need - I will have cucked a capitalist demigod. I’ve shot my shot on Twitter. Prayers up for me. It’s getting real in the USA and I have kids to feed (cats) *edit, I have been blocked by Melinda Gates on Twitter. On to Bill. I’m honestly just looking for money. What’re you guys arguing about? Capitalism? Huh...
  14. I love that intro, the little tape manipulation and reverbs that come back at the end.
  15. I recently finished buying all the EP's and filling my Analord binder. Took 15 years or so, but I'm glad. Analord was what inspired me to get my first synth after 10+ years of guitar playing and drumming. Some parts of the series will be in my head almost constantly. Absolutely perfect 10/10. I'm not the hugest fan of analord 9, but it opened me up to some harder acid stuffs
  16. Dude, with how tight your country's customs are and how much weed I'm around constantly, there is no way we wouldn't both end up in jail for that package. "man accepts package of 5kg of cannabis Gumbo, both parties arrested" 😉
  17. Without a massive change in material conditions for the hoards of poor and depressed people and education about drugs in a non-draconian way: I don't think there is much to be done. The Chinese will keep supplying cartels with precursor material for fentanyl and meth and there's not much we can do about it on the supply side. People will keep gobbling up these drugs due to dependance and kicking the can of whatever relative trauma they hold. As cliche as this may be for me of all people to offer as a solution - legalizing cannabis and psychedelics and destigmatizing their legitimate therapeutic potential could help. I've always said that two things keep the gun out of my mouth. Meaningful experiences and a sense of purpose. Some people don't have one or the other, a sad lot of folks don't have either. (stoner thought) I think drugs fill the void of the complete lack of spiritual/personal fulfillment inherent in the soul-crushing reality of constant work, debt, strife and no light at the end of the tunnel. Too easy to blame it on people who are addicted IMO. PS. Missed you, chen 🙂
  18. COVID be damned, my mans need his gumbo and I have a debt to pay.
  19. It happened again. Hi friends (idk how many of you are still here)
  20. Oh I feel that. I'm in Seattle and it's pretty bleak out here. I recently moved out of Seattle to a more suburban part of that area partially due to how bad it has gotten. I rented a house in a pretty sketchy spot and we had it all; people sleeping in the yard, pimps beating working girls out in front of the house, dudes shooting up on my porch, my gf's old car got stolen 3 times in 2 years. Brutal shit. Portland is a little more chaos than Seattle. Too many bridges and too much apathy to be as badass as Portland with that stuff. I was down there for a bachelor party in September of '19 and there was a dude meth'd out of his gourde just swinging a 8" blade at cars coming on the on-ramp. Dude proceeded to chase/stalk us (a buncha fried-out 30-somethings) for a solid 4 blocks. West coast is all kinds of fun!
  21. Damn that is so fuckin sad... His poor family. RIP to a genuinely good dude on here.
  22. It's so nice living here. Daily shootings, wide-scale poverty, huge opioid addiction issues. Just a few off the top of the ol' noggin. Feelin' Fine...
  23. Just swingin' on by to say -- You guys suck almost as much as we do. ?
  24. Always busy these days. Up to the same ol' stuff mostly. Moving this next month and setting up a new studio + spending money on building it more - should be dope How's life in the great North? I imagine the winter car is out and the summer car is in storage now? ?️
