ascending into madness

28/08/2009

Went to RedXRed in vancouver randomly on tuesday… $2 glasses of beer & good music… and the dj played this track by Paul Kalkbrenner, and I grabbed the rest of the album today and have been really digging it… a bit more progressive than I normally would be going for (so yeah.. warning gets a bit techy and a bit repetitive.. but if you embrace it, good things can be enjoyed hehe), and I want to check out the movie that it’s a soundtrack for, Berlin Calling…

This is the first track I heard…. was nearly the last track of the night and was a great finisher… but as happens when there’s 3 djs on the decks at once.. someone else interrupted it and mixed out of it…

Sorry I just couldn’t cut it down to any fewer tracks… I listened to this album today on my run and it ended up making it a bit of a mellow run, but on a bit of a meditative tip, the kind of pace you can just keep up forever… (speaking of running forever, the native mexican people, the Tarahumara can run for insane distances, like 160km at a time.. they practice persistence hunting, where they actually run down deer by chasing them until the deer tires out…. this is what I think we are capable of if we try and avoid being limited by the expectations of limits that we are taught as we grow up… their settlements were traditionally very far apart, and probably nobody ever told them they couldn’t run that far… haha or else it has to do with all the peyote and corn beer they drink, who knows)

Here’s something extremely nerdy (well, work related)… this is what my day looked like if you only looked at me checking in my work… (anything in square brackets is a summarization)
