This was my first time going to after-show parties at ComiCon. We started the night at the CBLDF party with some guys from J!nx at a rooftop party a couple of blocks from the convention center. I had trouble computing the fact that I was standing outside in July and there were patio heaters running …
I’m on my bi-annual trip to San Diego to hang with my buddy Chris. We schedule it around ComiCon so we get a couple of days there and a couple dorking around town. ComiCon runs from Wednesday night to Sunday afternoon and the crowds start large and get progressively more bonkers. The plan was to …
I never got too deep into Del but I luuurve The Automator.
This Daily Beast interview is good, lengthy read.
Are there any artists you wanted to work with but didn’t get to?
I tried to sign N.W.A. I went to the studio when they were recording Straight Outta Compton. I was just a fan, but I developed a relationship with them. And the reason it didn’t work out was … there have been a couple of cases in my life where I make some plan with the artist, but then they already have an existing relationship with a company and the company ends up doing something different. N.W.A was one of those.
A Rick Rubin-produced N.W.A. debut would have been interesting.
I love these super-slowed songs. Everything becomes Slowdive.

Not in a Weird Al way but in a “can make computer hardware repairs” way. I finally got and installed the replacement display I mentioned here. Like I said there, as long as the manual is clear I don’t feel like I can get too lost. This laptop is super-small but and there isn’t much clearance for cables but it’s all so cleverly engineered that it is tough to get confused. All of the cables end where they plug in. It’s neat.
And now I have a Windows machine that’s current-gen for work purposes of testing connections and things in Windows as well as the experience of cracking open a laptop and replacing pieces. Good times.
Funny story, I’m typing this up on the repaired laptop and I keep noticing a weird creak in one of the corners. Like the keyboard of top cover didn’t re-seat properly. It’s only then that it occurs to me that I might not have replaced all of the case screws. It is probably fair to say that I’m not *exactly* like a surgeon.
I’m a dork for the MF Doom imagery. That mask is such a great idea even if his last couple of releases haven’t been so great. This “Show Yourself” print by Amar Stewart looks great. I’ve already got my quota of MF Doom art at home otherwise I’d be all on this thing.
