So I went to nvision2008 today where a Guiness Book world record was set for longest continuous LAN party: 203 gamers for 36 hours. When I got home I ripped in this 45. Then I went to Smile Sushi with Vao. Now I'm home posting this and realizing that it all pretty much works out.
This is Yellow Magic Orchestra's single from their first album in 1978. The A and B side.

Here's another. Recorded for the EOM Sessions on Pulse Radio, which was hosted by my friend Paul Leath. You will hear his golden voice at the end of the set. My set came right after my then-black-door-partner-in-crime Cole, who recently shaved off his handlebar mustache.

In May 1998 I took a trip out to New York to meet up with my friend Anthony. We started out in NYC for a couple days, passed through Saratoga Springs and Hector, to finally arrive in Mecklenburg, where Anthony was moving into a little farm house. Mecklenburg is almost directly in between Ithaca on Cayuga Lake and Watkins Glen on Seneca Lake. We set up the turntables and I recorded a mix tape. It was the only mix that I actually made copies of (maybe 30) and sold or gave away. People seemed to like it and I would hear stories about it for a years afterwards. Here it is in it's original cassette format. No playlist is available right now, but eventually (this could be an understatement) I will post it.
