The Wrath of the Computer Gods

Posted on Nov 3rd, 2008 by A-Trak

Alright so I mentioned a few times that I’ve had some computer woes in the last few weeks. But for superstitious reasons I didn’t want to get too deep into it until I reached some sort of closure. I think I’m at a point now where I can tell my story now. Be afraid, be very afraid. Read More

Fool’s Gold CMJ Wrapup

Posted on Oct 28th, 2008 by Nick Catchdubs

We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:

- Driven By Boredom photos (whole show / Kid Sis / Voice selects)
- Last Night’s Party photos
- Behind-the-scenes glamour shots (and Q&As) from Metromix
- Prefix Mag photos (more on Flickr)
- End-of-night foolishness captured by Nicky Digital
- NY Times story on CMJ merch w/ Kid Sis tee

My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1′s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.

Posted on Oct 27th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas


I’m sitting in the airport in Phoenix, where due to an unfortunate circumstance (I’m an idiot) I’ve arrived 4 hours early for my flight back to NYC.  In the meantime, I figured I would share some of the highlights from my recent trip to the southwest, namely, the Mexican food.
