Free Tunesday

Here's an awesome bootleg of Collie Budz "Come Around".

Come Around RMX **Free Download** by Rogue Star

Here's the original if you've never heard it before

Also, here is 5 free tunes from Gridlok (who I've featured in a previous post). This is some more experimental stuff, compared to his usual drum and bass material. Check it out and lets see what you think!

It was a windy one...part 2?

So I found a news report of the windstorm that blew through yesterday; looking at what it did to our city is kinda crazy. I mean, the entire downtown was shut down. From wind. How often are you going to hear about that happening???

It was a windy one yesterday....

As the title says, holy shit was it ever windy yesterday. Out of nowhere, we had this crazy windstorm, causing windows to be ripped out of skyscrapers downtown...which in turn caused the entire downtown to be shut down. No public transit, no driving your own car. Police had certain streets all taped off, and were guiding everyone out on one road (which sucked, as it took me an hour and a half to get out). It was crazy. Apparently, down where my parents used to live, the wind was so strong it was causing grassfires too.

All of this makes me wonder...why is winter not here yet? I have enjoyed the nice weather (minus those damn arctic winds), but the fact that we only have a 1/4 inch of snow on the ground is really odd. Usually we have snow on the ground on Halloween...but not this year.Shit, I can even go outside in just a hoodie some days. Anywhere else been experiencing a weird winter?

And before I forget, here is "Cybornator" by Pixelord. I can never get enough of this one!

Sunday Funday

Well, its a busy one for me today. I still have papers to write, but I have a dilemma. My crew's old bar is shutting down for good...so we're all going down to have one last beer and watch the Grey Cup (Canadian Football...I couldn't care less about it). Hopefully that last beer stays at one, and doesn't turn into too many, I don't think writing a paper drunk would be too good (or would it?)

Here is a free tune from a good friend of mine, Mark Instinct. Its on some moombaton steez. Lets here what you think!

...are not one to fuck wit'

Here is something even more strange. This twitter feed that is all "Sayings for Girls", where "She" (there has to be a few of them), are pumping out like 5-10 of these sayings an hour. Its quite....ridiculous I guess.

Also, yes Bart, West Edmonton Mall does have a shooting range. But there are a bunch of them; I think theres 3 or 4 here in Calgary too. When I was younger, we went to one and got to shoot .44 Mags, M-16's, whatever. It was too good.

Happy Thanksgiving...

..to everyone down south anyways. We Canadians had our thanksgiving last month, but I still like to cash in on the American one too. I wanted to deep fry a turkey again, but this time, I'm just going to sit around all day, watch football, do a bunch of essays, etc. So for now, I wish you all a safe holiday and hope you enjoy this video, and this mix!

War is hell.

Wake The Herd Volume 3 by Susie Buckmaster
This was made by a good friend of mine; its really low, really deep. Give it a listen!

Is it seriously only Tuesday?

I woke up this morning, feeling so good, thinkin it was Friday. Apparently its going to be a long week, but oh well. I have a couple of papers to finish up before the end of the month, so I figured it was going to be pretty busy.

Anywho, here are a few funny things I've found. First off, we got something as crazy as it sounds, and that is Volcano Surfing.

While they Volcano isn't active...these people are still zoomin down! 40 km per hour doesn't seem too fast when you're in a car or on a motorcycle, but when you're just on a sled its extreme.

Then there was also this article I found, with the worst tip you've ever seen at a restaurant. As a bartender, I would kill this dude.

And before I go, my friend's label, Tycho Records, has released a free compilation on soundcloud. Enjoy!

Cheesy Music

I'm a sucker for all types of cheesy music, so when I heard this remix, I had to laugh pretty hard. Its a bootleg of Lady Gaga's Telephone (done by MRK-1). You might be be tired of the original, but this remix is pretty good, for how cheesy it is! And its a free download, which I know you all love.

What are your favorite cheesy tunes? I think my next post is just going to be a bunch of stuff I should be ashamed to like.

I can't believe I forgot to post this...

I am a sucker for those really bad church signs and billboards; I think they're some of the funneist things on the internet. And the other night, when I was out in downtown, I found a sign of my own. I was going to write a description, but instead, I will just ask this; This has to be intentional, right? No one is this daft, right?????

#Occupy Pepper Spray Cop

You've probably seen him everywhere lately (and if not, again, what are you doing on the internet!?), but here is an article with a bunch of hilarious photoshops, now that its become a full fledged meme.


Here is my favorite of the batch, let me know which one is yours!

Fueling Change, and some other new stuff

First off, TGIF. I hate using that abbreviation, but I could not be happier with the fact that it is finally Friday. For one, most of my marks for midterm exams/projects were up today, and its nice to see most of my marks ranging from B's to A's. I'm glad to know all that slaving away in my room wasn't for nothing!

Anywho, for this update HERE IS YOUR CHANCE TO GO GOOD IN THIS WORLD. Some of you might have looked on the side of the blog in the twitter feed and seen something along the lines of "I voted for Fueling Change"...and have been wondering what that is. Essentially, Shell is vowing to give $25,000 in funding to a company who is "fueling" environmental change in our society. My girlfriend and her colleagues in Student Energy have entered this contest. In a nutshell, they put on international conferences to educate University students (and eventually, anyone and everyone) in the world of Climate Change and Environmental Sustainability, specifically energy. Now, back to that contest. The company with the most votes wins the $25,000, and there is probably some prizes for second and third place. However, if you could take a few seconds out of your day to sign up, and vote for this, it would be much appreciated. If you are a person who really thinks this is a great way to change how we think about the envrionment (or if you just reaaaaaaaaaaaaally like me that much), you can get 40 more votes by logging in with Facebook or Twitter, giving you a grand total of 50 votes! Again, voting on this would be much appreciated by me, the whole Student Energy fam, and our planet!

So enough of that sappy stuff. Here are two tunes I've been feeling lately. They're more experimental than usual, but I think you'll still enjoy them!

This first track comes from Old Apparatus...who I'm sure I blogged about before, but I can't find the post. Oh well. Theres no real way to explain this song...you just must listen. He had a pretty cool mini-mix as well, which you can find here.
Old Apparatus - Hand to mouth by Old apparatus

This next one is from Kromestar's new "Parallel Sounds" EP (which is marvelous). It has that super old school 80's synth vibe; to be honest, it sounds like it should be the theme song to an old police/action show, or possibly a game show. Anyways, it is awesome.

Have a good weekend all! Don't forget to vote!

Juggalos: The New Threat!

I'm going to assume most of you know what a Juggalo is by this point in time, but in a nutshell; they are fans of the Insane Clown Posse (if you by chance don't know who they are...here is an example. If you haven't heard that before, what are you doing on the internet?), dress in facepaint, drink terrible soda, and feel like they are misunderstood.

I have to agree that they are misunderstood, because the FBI just released their annual Gang report, and have listed Juggalos on there (pg 21). This is pretty ridiculous, as they are the grown up equivalents of that fat kid in elementary that got picked on. Yes, I'm sure some commit crime. Yes, they hang out in groups and identify with one another. But is this enough to make them a gang? Are they even that organized? I fucking doubt it. And to be honest, having them above the section for Human trafficing and prostitution is pretty ridiculous...

I dunno about this one guys; what are your thoughts?

But apparently it is...yikes!

After getting sick the last week, and now, just recovering from getting my wisdom teeth removed, I am back for good, and here is a good post to come back on. I usually like to look at a webcomic now and then to get a good laugh, but this is surprisingly inspirational. I highly recommend you all check it out yourself! Its written by an 85 year old man who has seen all the economic downturns of the last centery, so if there is any point where you are feeling like the world is keeping you down; remember his words!


I would embed this, but it is far too big

Its Been a Long Time...

I shouldn't have left you (but I did, and I am sorry about it)!

(also, h8ers gunna h8, this song is sick and I don't care what you think!)

For the last week, I have been recovering from some sort of black plague (or flu...but I still say its the plague) that I caught at a party the day after my last post. I felt better a few days later, then alas, we hit a cold snap and it came right back. It has been brutal. However, I am now better, and with good timing, as I'll be getting my last two wisdom teeth out this weekend. Fun times all around for this guy! I'm actually pretty stoked to get them out though; I get to take a week off work, sit back and relax for the weekend and watch a bunch of movies....ahhhh I can't wait.

Anywho, that aside, here is a special halloween article for you guys (although I guess technically halloween just ended...unless you're on the west coast). In Colorado, a family was shocked to find a masked intruder in their bathtub. Given the fact that it was a 40 pound Raccoon, they were probably shocked, stunned by cuteness, then shocked again, since it is a fricken 40 pound Raccoon. I mean, that thing is the size of a small child, it could probably maul you no problem. Personally, I'd like to know what Rafi would do if this happened to him!

And in a last minute addition, here is an article about an old jewish guy from New York who was a pen pal with Muammar Gaddafi in the 1980's. He then thought it would be a good idea to catch up with him over the last few months. Sadly, his letter got returned unopened (who would of thought?).

Happy (belated for the most part) Halloween everyone!
