I’ve fell off the wagon and deep back into addiction. It was at it’s worst about 3 years ago but i gave it up and my condition steadily improved but recently i’ve found myself plummeting back into the downward spiral and never ending joy of………

I’m sure most of you are aware that today is the summer solstice. The day when the sun stands still. The longest day of the year when the summer is at its brightest.
Todays solstice has certainly lived up to it’s billing so far, it’s been yet another fantastic day weather wise. So to celebrate the summer getting into full swing and the beginning of the long, long summer nights, barbecues and parties here is a list of summer based tracks i had lying around on the laptop. They vary from summer holidays through to summer romance and more.
1. Wavves – Summer Goth
2. Girl Talk – Summer Smoke
3. Refused – Summerholiday Vs. Punkroutine
4. Raindear – Childhood Memories Of Summer
5. Incubus – Summer Romance (Anti-Gravitiy Love Song)
6. Avi Buffalo – Summer Cum
7. Crocodiles – Summer Of Hate
8. The Manhattan Love Suicides – Indian Summer
9. Singapore Sling – Summer Garden
10. Taking Back Sunday – You’re So Last Summer
MP3: The Unwinding Hours – Solstice
Summer also means festivals. Sadly though this year will be the first year since 200o that i have missed T in the Park. In previous years i’ve also managed to take in summer festivals in Germany and Austria. Both were unforgettable experiences. In fact the only musical festivities i’ll be taking in this year is that of the West End Festival in Glasgow.
I suppose it’ll be a nice change and for once i won’t have to wake up boiling hot and hungover in a tiny polyester tent……….who am i kidding? I’m gonna miss it big time. Festivals made my summer to an extent but the new house takes priority this year and if i’m lucky i may be able to fit in a big festival of some sort at the end of the summer or maybe even September. There’s always ATP as well at the end of the year.
MP3: Deftones – My Own Summer
Summer also brings that old tingling warm sensation, literally. It’s called sunburn and a few of my friends have already been “lobsterified” this summer. So has this dude below, why is he still smiling!? Feel the burn!
MP3: Muse – Sunburn

Ps. Today is also my big sister Lisa’s birthday. 29 today! I’ve tx and phoned her so i might as well go for the treble and wish her a good one on here as well, Happy Birthday Lis! xxxx
She’s away on holiday at the moment so i gave her the prezzies a few days back. Among them was Iggy and The Stooges “Raw Power” Special Edition. A fine choice if you ask me.
Woke up really early yesterday morning, couldn’t get back to sleep so decided to fuck about with a Jay Z instrumental track i had and use some of the random acapellas i had lying around to make an interesting piece of bootleg material. The resulting piece of bashed up glitchness that emerged pleasantly surprised me. This is just a rough demo version, like i said i put it together in the early hours of a sunday morning (probably whilst still under the influence of alcohol). It only took about an hour tops to make this version but i’m going to redo it and maybe add some more acapellas and maybe even some different beats.
MP3: Someones In The Wolf – 9999 Problems (rough version)
Instrumentation: Jay Z
Acapellas: (in no specific order) Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Muse, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers, Bon Jovi (yes,….. Bon Jovi)
Feel free to download the track from here or if you just wanna listen to it and listen to a few other tracks i’ve done head over to http://www.myspace.com/someonesinthewolf

Ok first things first, Jukebox Cinema is a new section were i’m going to be putting up posts about films. It could be a new upcoming release, it could be an old favourite of mine, it could be an absolutely devastatingly bad film that me and my friends have vocally torn to shreds over and over (Cradle of Fear springs to mind) yet still find ourselves somehow drawn to watching it or last but not least it could be just any old film i fancy writing about. So why the jukebox part in the title? Well all the films will be accompanied by mp3’s that are somehow related to them either through subject matter or title so thats where the “jukebox” comes in….
District 9 is an alien/sci-fi film set in a pre-millenium Johannesburg. It’s directed by Neill Blomkamp, you may recognise the name. He was apparently due to make the movie adaption of Halo before the project fell on its arse, so to speak. Its also produced by Peter Jackson (he of LotR fame).
The storyline is pretty simple so i won’t go into to much detail. Aliens land in South Africa, the military and government find them, house them in a Government refugee camp and keep them quarantined from human society in an area called District 9. Then the fun begins….
It’s released over here on the 4th September (next Friday), i can’t wait to go see it.
1. Blink 182 – Alien’s Exist
2. Monster Magnet – Space Lord
3. Prodigy – Out Of Space
4. Radiohead – Subterranean Homesick Alien
5. Unicorn Kid – Wee Monsters
6. Mogwai – Angels Versus Aliens
7. Spacemen3 – Take Me to the Other Side
8. Muse – Space Dementia
9. Suicide – Spaceship
10. Babylon Zoo – Spaceman
Postal Service – The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
I was the one worth leaving………

2009: A Robot Odyssey is my second mixtape. Yet again, recorded all in the one go and yet again under 1 hour and 2o minutes in duration (fits on a cd no problem). On the first mixtape (VCPE) i went for an almost kinda rock vibe, electronic as well but mostly rock. So on Robots i’ve decided to go not quite as guitar orientated and tried my best to stick to a dancier side, although there are a few more rockier types in amongst the mix and they do work quite well alongside the rest of the tracks.
Once more i’ve decided to add bits and loop, cut and sample again over most of the songs to make them “edits” as such i suppose and not really remixes, there are a few that i’ve properly remixed, the rest are just edits though.
Just as VCPE had outtakes from some films, Robots does too. There’s also a small introduction and end speech by Microsoft Anna so listen closely. The mix starts off slowly then builds up. About 3 or 4 songs in i decided to use some more “commercial/poppier” material (AVH, Daft Punk, Soulwax etc) but then go back to more beat driven music. I had to do a slight edit on the last track by Black Strobe. Just shortened it down a bit to allow the mix to be under 80 minutes long. You might notice the jump in that track too. I can only apologise for that.
I;m gonna put this mix up on Mediafire soon so it will be available for unlimited download but for the moment just left click once on the mp3 below and it’ll open in a different page then simply right click and save target as.
