DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Penumbra

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Penumbra

Eclipse mania has passed and no one I know went blind.

I watched it as it happened in the safest possible way: The NASA live stream.

Granted, you lose some of the wonder you’d get by seeing in person. But you don’t have to drive anywhere, crane your neck, or shell out any money for those glasses you’ll only use once.

Good job, solar system.

Check out this tune…

DJ Mondo, terrified the summer is ending, breaks for (Beat) lunch.

I’m not going to lie. I hate Fall.

It’s mid-August, so I’m getting that pressed-for-time feeling. That feeling that I have to get in all the beach, ice cream truck and outdoor grilling time I can before I have to start wearing a sweater.

On the ‘up’ side, I’m doing more music stuff outside lately. Native Instruments Maschine Mikro, Maschine Jam and I had lunch on the balcony Sunday. We were joined by the iPad and the Korg Gadget app, kept in sync by Ableton Link.

I’m getting it all in now, because I won’t be dancing in September. …I’m looking at you, Earth Wind and Fire.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Mythical

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Mythical

With a perfectly good, solid material world under their feet, humans are constantly trying to jump off of it and live somewhere else. It’s usually some conceptual version of heaven (i.e.: field of flowers, 72 virgins, the 1950s, infinite smoke shop, etc.).

As attached as they are to these insubstantial concepts, they dump them when things get serious. If they’re shackled to a railroad track with a train coming, the vast majority will choose a hacksaw over self-help DVDs, prayer beads or some holy book.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Fire and Fury

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: Fire and Fury

Everybody, calm down.

The summer is getting short and you’re wasting time and energy, if you’re not hanging out at the beach.

Shouldn’t we be trying to have fun and make each other’s lives some degree better? Or is that completely off the table, going forward?

Check out these repurposed Maschine loops I dragged into Traktor.

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: App Fight!! – War of the Robots

DJ Mondo’s Atomic Luau: App Fight!! – War of the Robots

Feeling homesick for the warm, radioactive glow of robot combat, I decided to take a break from music and play some War Robots (www.pixonic.com).

Multiplayer with great graphics, fun maps and customizable robots, it lets me get back to the business of repelling evil.

Check out my General Patton-like strategic maneuvering and piloting skills rarely seen outside of Japanese anime.
