“Within our lifetimes, we’ve marveled as biologists have managed to look at ever smaller and smaller things. And astronomers have looked further and further into the dark night sky, back in time and out in space. But maybe the most mysterious of all is neither the small nor the large: it’s us, up close. Could we even recognize ourselves, and if we did, would we know ourselves? What would we say to ourselves? What would we learn from ourselves? What would we really like to see if we could stand outside ourselves and look at us? “
Happy Halloween Everyone!!! Hope you all are keeping extra classy! I did not have time this year to carve a pumpkin like I did last year, but you can still enjoy my craftmanship from last year below. A new 8tracks mix for y’all as well, PTFO – clearly it’s for when you want to pass the f*ck out, not appropriate for times of rage (aka tonight). Enjoy and thank you so much reading, TCC just had its 1st Birthday!
A brand new, hand-crafted 8tracks mix is up here! There is literally a little something for everyone.

One of Brainfeeder’s newest signees, Martyn recently came out with his debut record, Ghost People. Check out this tripped out music video, directed by Komx-om-Pax, for Viper.
In the wake of Steve Job’s death, which really still hasn’t hit me, I thought I’d share my technology history with Apple. As far as can remember I’ve had Apple computers (or back then, Macintosh) and products and I thank my parents for that. Dunno what made my dad buy us our first computer from them, but I think I’ll ask him now. RIP Steve – An Apple a day kept those nasty PC viruses away.
1995 – Macintosh LC
Great machine, did everything I could’ve dreamed back then and more. I have very fond memories of playing Oregon Trail and practicing my typing.
1999 – iMac DV (in Indigo)
This one was a hand me down from my sister when she went off to college. This was the updated version of the original imacs and around the same time that those color iBooks and the G5 were getting lots of hype as well.
2004 – iMac G5
When my iMac died, I got the newly released, fancy iMac G5. I love this computer to death and 7 years later it’s still going strong and still looks in fashion and sexy.
2004 – iPod mini
I had a blue mini after I retired my Sony Walkmen CD player. If you would have told me how Apple would’ve completely changed the music industry forever then, I woulda slapped you in the face with a fish. Really though, I would have called bullshit if you had told me that Apple would shape (and had already started) not only the music world, but the business world, and even the design world, how people look at things, what people like in marketing, what is considered sleek, out of all our associations we have today think about how many have been shaped by one company and for the most part, the vision of one man.
2006 – iPod Video
Videos too! Oh my gosh! “How do I download all these TV shows (what’s a torrent??!) so I can put them on my iPod and watch them on there!?”
2009 – iPod Touch
Got this for basically nothing with my MacBook, and then I ended up breaking it a year later 😦
2009 – MacBook Pro (not pictured above)
Going to college! Gotta get a new Mac and it has to be the new MacBook Pro.
2010 – iPod Shuffle
In between iPods I made the decision to go with the cheapest option now that I had plundered all my money away on booze and foolishness (food).
What’s next for me?
Waiting for that iPhone 5 to come out, not too impressed with the 4s as of yet…or maybe the new iPad!…or perhaps a imacquarium?
A brief history of mankind according to a theory that apes at one point ate shrooms which doubled the size of their brains in a mere 2 million years, aka making us awesome today. This is actually an intro to a Comedy Central pilot, Thunderbrain…woulda never guessed that. It goes hard. #THINK!
Well, it was that time of year again. I’m talking about New York’s own, major electronic music festival, the EDC of the East: Electric Zoo. Yes, it took me this long to finally get around to writing about it because I’ve been recovering. Let’s just say three days is a long time to be raging, and I barely made it through. Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my Days 2 and 3 were cut short, therefore this write-up isn’t exactly complete, as in honest to who, in my opinion were the best performers simply because I could not see nearly all of them. From what I did see however, EZOO was back, bigger, and better than ever. From the organization of the actual event (remember those terrible bus lines last year?), to the actual acts, the Zoo fucking brought it. My Day 1 started off strong, arriving just in time to catch some of Bart B More’s set. This Dutch kid didn’t care that his was spinning for a meager crowd, he still gave us plenty of bass to soak up. He dropped his popular tunes like Listen to This with Harvard Bass and also featured some of his new tracks off of his and Harvard Bass’ upcoming EP, The Ones, dropping next week.
Next, I was excited to see Feed Me, but after a few minutes I grew bored and headed over to the Main Stage to catch Rusko. Rusko churned out much of the same that he did for IDentity Festival last month, but I still enjoyed it. Afterwards I mulled around the crowds and grass areas, enjoying watching all drugged out ravers and bridge and tunnel bros dance like retards (not saying I wasn’t either, the dancing part I mean). I thought I’d check out SebastiAn since I am in love with his remix of the Kills’ Cheep & Cheerful. Unfortunately, he mostly just stood there with a cigarette in his mouth and doing some weird shit with one of his arms in the air. No SebastiAn, I will not bow down or salute you unless you deserve it. I then went “set surfing” as I like to call it because so many acts I wanted to see were playing at the same time. As the sun set, I headed once again back to the main stage to electronic super legend, Moby. Wow is all I gotta say. I had no idea Moby went that hard. Let’s be real, when I picture Moby all I see is his calm facial expression, his lack of any facial hair, and those glasses; oh and also Porcelain is playing in my head. But then when you think about, Moby has been making electronic music since I was born, changing, improving, and adapting his style to current tastes and such. I didn’t really recognize any of the songs, but he did play tracks by some today’s big names like Avicii, AC Slater, Tommy Trash, and Afrojack. I was sad to leave his set early, but the festival must go on.
