1st XV by Grass Cannons



So a while ago Joe sent me a demo track by Grass Cannons called '1st XV'. I don't think it is up anywhere but I'm sure they're gonna put something out soon, it's a really rad track and I think you should be getting excited about this band/release. To be fair, though, maybe I only like this band because every member is a babe. They're like that cute girl from your english class who toys with your emotions using a suggestive glance, and you're thinking "what does it mean" but never take action because you don't want to spoil the excitement of uncertainty.



all your friends, they suck

fauxhound/ax hndl split ep.... coming soon

I'm gonna release a split ep {as fauxhound} with Rory Macmurdo {as Ax Hndl}, it's gonna be good, I have three new songs that are in transit for mixing.

futurnari/fauxhound




So Dove and I made a song once, when I was in chch for this^ {never played the show as well but I don't seem to have the updated poster}, and we released it on the NZ chip compilation {which is here}. I put it on audio archive so you could stream it.... 'cause you're probably too lazy to dl the entire comp.


and you can download it off the compilation here, or find it on archive but you should get the whole compilation because it's super rad.

Everything I love leaves me

Noir (got my dmg stolen) by fauxhound

So my Gameboy + LSDJ cartridge got stolen from Poor/Lonely last weekend, all my song data is gone forever. I've been using an emulator, Gambatte, on my computer, I wrote this wee track, will most definitely add some vocals to it later on. I posted it onto 8bit collective and it's been getting a little bit of hate which has kinda turned into a joke- link. Have a listen, any feedback is much appreciated!

slowbro

A, public, demo for Dove and Ivan (although I doubt Ivan will read this so I'll probably just email him). [edit 2/12/2011] I sped this song up and it sounds way sweeter, 80bpm>30bpm. If you're coming to poor/lonely tonight I'll be playing this first.

equality vs. prosperity
people vs. profits


Which do you value more?

So hear are the lyrics for Kittens.V1.01 .... in case you wanted to know

All my sisters are blue eyed and blonde
They got rings man, they got rings
But I never got mine
Guess I got left behind at every other church camp I failed to attend
To be honest those girls never held my attention
Those girls never held my attention for long
'Cause I got a brain

I got a brain abrasion
I guess you could say I'm retarded
Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it didn't happen
I don't really know how I got to this place
My memory doesn't serve me so well anymore
Some days I think I'm still comatosed
Living in this sub-par faux reality


Don't say you, never ever wanted too

I even listened to it on repeat!
That actually mean a lot

So after about 9 months I felt it again, can't get it out of my head now.
I'm so so pleased.

Saturday, October 15, 2011

Spent last night listening to a drunk artist ramble, he showed us some of his art too.
My opinion of all artists (esp painters) is now at an all time low, so so so much wank about nothing.

Door to Door, words

It's tough being left in a right-hand world
It's hard being single when you knock on doors
And your foot got bit when she got bored
So you moved to the city where you hit the floor
'Cause a drink was your only way of escape
Could you hold my hands and we'll forget the shakes
Could you hold my hands and we'll forget the quakes
You'll never get the stains out of your shirt
Your white collar's soiled a deep dark blue


here's the audio

in love


This music makes me feel like I'm in love, it's really bizare because I'm not in love.
It's like this tease, I don't know if I like it. I should stop listening.

A palindrome by Demetri Martin

These things are so buzzy

Dammit I’m mad.
Evil is a deed as I live.
God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
In my halo of a mired rum tin.
I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
Be still if I fill its ebb.
Ew, a spider… eh?
We sleep. Oh no!
Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
Both, one… my names are in it.
Murder? I’m a fool.
A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash,
A Goddam level I lived at.
On mail let it in. I’m it.
Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
“Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
Evil is a deed as I live.
Dammit I’m mad.

I made a new blog, it's sole purpose is to portray my love for Lindsay Weir....


she's so beautiful, smart, rebellious and a little insecure.... dream girl!

I guess all I ever wanted was a brother, like blood brother.
I mean maybe not even that, just to know what it's like to have a brother.
Wow I've never really thought about this before.

Songs +++ Mods



So I got a song released on the first Pxl-Bot compilation, Pxl-Bot is a bad ass net-label who've released loads of sweet chipmusic! I'm very honoured to feature on this compilation and my next ep will be released by them! On this compilation I especially like the Frostbyte track and the MONODEER track!


Also our Teensy USB circuits came in the mail today. I'm just waiting for my link cables to come and my underclock mod and I can start syncing some awesome chip/glitch with my computer!!!

WAOTS/Rubijaq/$noregazZzm

So I've come across a few sweet tracks and videos lately, here is one from Dunedin it's WAOTS (We Aeronauts Of The Spirit). I met Max in Auckland a few months ago, he plays music on his DS and uses a vocoder and stuff.
by WAOTS

And here is a sweet track from Brisbane it's Rubijaq. It's a bass heavy chip song, I really like this guy's music especially his last two releases; Unreleased Compilation 2, and Unreleased Compilation 3.





Also the latest $noregazZzm video is out and it's pretty rad. I like Joe's kiwi accent (I'd hope Zach would be proud), Lisandru doesn't have a kiwi accent but, his Romanian/Canadian twang does his Romanian/Canadian upbringing proud.



Also I'm heading to Wellington this weekend with Grass Cannons and Nevernudes, it's gonna be an awesome party they're playing at Fred's on friday (don't ask me where that is... it's in Wellington somewhere).

brain abrasion



mountains only seem so high when next to valleys so low.
nothing is lasting, everything is dying.

Friday, August 19, 2011



So last weekend I went back to Christchurch to see old friends. I had a fantastic time hanging out with people I love, my flight almost didn't get to Christchurch because of the fog.

Things I did in ChCh;

-Got to see the brewery for the first time, it was pretty cool, I drunk a milk stout and it was tasty.

- Hung out with Fionn, he let me ride his bike around town while he was visiting the doctor, we had lots of good talks I miss him alot :c. Netta was pretty busy studying, I only got to see her a little bit.

-Got to see the Archive in construction, it's looking really cool, T'Nealle and Jasper have been working really hard on it.

-Hung out with Joel, he left for Europe/Australia at the start of 2010 was really cool seeing him again!

-Went to a Skab/Skub party with T'Nealle and Jasper, we had a killer time ripping up the dance floor!

- Saw Arrietty with Alice, Matt and Hollan at the cinema. I found some free popcorn afterwards too!

-Ate lots of T'Nealle's bread/pizza it was delicious, fresh bread is probably one of the best things ever!

-Went to a 21st, I didn't know the birthday girl, but had a super fun time partying with Joel. I sung Limp Bizkit on the Karaoke.

I did lots more as well but my memory doesn't serve me quite so well. I had such a fun time but I realised just how much I miss my ChCh buds. Oh well this is life, I can't have my cake and eat it.

Courage Club- I am fearsome!


Courage Club at Campus was so awesome! I think I am the third most fearsome second only to; T'Nealle and Dove... actually, I am the most fearsome in this photo! My left hand is about to perform 'vice grip' while my right is totally gearing up for 'comet punch'.

You have to listen to this album!!

I had a dream the other night, that I got a kiss from this girl I know. It was an awesome dream and when I woke up I was smiling, and then I realised it was just a dream but kept smiling because sometimes dreams come true in real life.

SOMETIMES DREAMS COME TRUE
SOMETIMES DREAMS COME TRUE

SOMETIMES DREAMS COME TRUE

$noregazZzm and Rackets in Wellington


So $noregazZzm and Rackets played in Wellington a weekend, or so, ago. We packed out three cars and road tripped down to the cold mid-west {it's not really west... but it was cold} the trip was sooo much fun we stopped lots and partied on the side of the road in excitement. When we got to Wellington Rackets gave us an unwanted tour of the cbd, later I meet up with Mark, we drunk beers and talked in his apartment. Before the show I got really excited and engaged my party mindset mode {I'm really a computer running algorithms, so party mode is easily obtainable}. The show was amazing, I think all the bands that played that night simply killed it {in this case 'killing it' is a good thing} , Rackets, $noregazZzm, and Dave Currie's DJ set were simply superb. The following evening was somewhat shadowed by the first, it was still great though, I really enjoyed meeting up with Alice and Sam, I haven't seen those cats in ages :c !! Also I made really good friends with Maddie... actually both nights were really great, but the first had better music.


During the daytime Mark and I saw the Colossal Squid at Te Papa, it wasn't colossal really it was just gross. We had lots of really good talks which kinda made me sad cause I missed our flatting times in ChCh, I also met up with Tyne and Hannah which was cool, a little weird, a little like salt on cuts but not really that bad..... hmmm overall, though, I had an excellent time, now I'm back in Auckland working and partying and making tunes.




ps pictures are from Rachel Brandon, she put them, and more, on FB

Serval Two by $noregazZzm/MoodSmiles

Friday, June 17, 2011


Welcome back to the real world, I'm listening to The Divine Liturgy of the Wretched Exiles by the Psalters it's an amazing album. Every song is equally as amazing as the next, I have spent the night awake thinking about alternate realities and this album describes, to me, a glimpse of the best possible reality. I want to say more but can't find words to describe the terrifying nature of brilliance, if this seems incoherent then click this link <Psalters and listen to this album.

So I have finally finished mixing the debut release for Fauxhound. The EP will be released for free download online, I'm looking for chip net labels to release it on, also I think I'll press a few CDRs which will have a bonus Fauxhound/Futurnari song on it. Anouska Van Der Werf, is designing the artwork (this is what I'm waiting on for the release), she's a graphic designer from Auckland and is doing an amazing job!!

Milo and Otis

This movie freaked me out when I was a kid, especially the scene where Milo floats away in the box. Watching it now though it's delightfully hilarious, although some of the situations they put those animals in weren't so nice. The narrator is classic!!

New room ++++ Comic swap

These are two Liz Prince comics that Alice has let me borrow, they are such lovely comics, probably two of the best comics I have ever read. Made me feel really sentimental and a little sad [but a good sorta sad... if you get what I mean]. I will send them back to Alice along with Blankets and Lost at Sea so she can read them!

This is my new room... I used to live in our lounge but have recently upgraded to a small room in our garage, the privacy is nice! I have set up a small recording 'studio' for chipmusic, in the photo my computer is perched next to my mixer in the studio! Really it's just a faux-studio {do you see what I did there?}!!

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Comics


So my comics came today, I haven't read them yet and really have no idea what to expect. Today I will drink coffee, read comics and possibly play gameboy {most likely play gameboy}. I think I will read "Lost at Sea" first because it's substantially shorter than 'Blankets'. Comics will be sent away, and hopefully returned, for a long distance comic swap.


Also I will give Little Scale's new EP a thrashing.

So I'm trying to catch the Mew in Cerulean City on Blue, but every time I battle the youngster with the Slowpoke my cart freezes.... *Sigh*

Hypothetically I turn and slap my hypothetical girlfriend
"This is how you changed me, with your teases, with our love. Now an asexual life is what I desire, one where the only rush I get is from coffee and a level 7 Mew locked in a pokéball trapped in box no.1"

Girls with crushes vs. Girl bit crushers



Here's a chorus that, hopefully, you can all sing along too when the collaboration with snoregazzzm is complete.


"girls with crushes are pretty nice
but girl bit crushers got to take the cake
banana bread or carrot - they can eat what they like
don't take shit from the cosine wave"
