Southern Outpost Record Launch at High Jinks

SO Flyer

To celebrate the release of TWO RECORDS at one time (which is a record in itself), and our new distribution deal with Submerge, the reclusive people at Southern Outpost have decided to come out of the lab and wreak sensorial havoc upon those who grace us with their presence.

The night off with a live audio-visual experiment featuring Miss Memory and B.A.S.I.C
Live performance by the newest Southern Outpost member SOL-37
DJ sets by Miss Memory, k.loc, The Sentinel and Da Debonair.

Look out for a scathing yet (hopefully) enlightening interview with Miss Memory and k.loc in next weeks 3Dworld magazine.


John Peel RIP

I guess I’ll chip into the collective sadness about the death of radio Legend and champion of new and awesome music John Peel. John passed away in Peru yesterday. If it wasn’t for John, the landscape of music might not be what it is today.

Obituary: John Peel


Imagine this, the lights in the universe are all on and at the flick of god’s switch all the lights in the world are all out.. you can run, but you cant hide. Cuz if we dont change quick, it is coming, a world eclipse… BLACKOUT.

Lil’ Louis – Blackout Phase 1

Just about everything just blacked out here at work. Luckily I’ve got a laptop and the network seems to be OK. 🙂

Party Bus

Toyota Hi Ace

Get on board for the party bus!

According to Babelfish:

This car the exhibition from Toyota!? With you can be surprised, チョイ badness it is the high ace sound satellite which engenders image, but use agrees upon is known with strangely. To tell the truth by the car which was made as the portable studio which mounds this car and the field event etc., the body side ガバッ and the opening, it has become the mechanism where acoustic equipment and the DJ booth appear from in. As for theme “the customization car which works pleasantly”. When so this car is running throughout the city truly, just a little we fear! ?

Should be great for spontaneus bush doofs or perhaps random suburban dj assaults 😉

Ubuntu and Java

Update: This post is a bit redundant now. Please read this post for more information.

I’ve been installing Ubuntu Linux on most of my computers (one to go). One thing that gives the shits about Debian-based distros is Java support (or the lack thereof). To get a java runtime installed, add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list:

deb unstable main non-free

Other mirrors can be found here.

And then apt-get install j2re1.4. Too easy! This gives you Blackdown Java for Linux.

“This is the greatest gift idea this year, some even say ever.”

Donald Trump Doll

Looks like everyone’s favourite capitalist and “The Apprentice” star, Donald Trump is now available as an action figure. You can recreate those great scenes such as when Omorosa was fired from the show. The Donald action figure can say great phrases such as “I should fire myself just for having you around”, “The one’s easy for me…you’re fired”, “That was a tough one”, “Think big and live large”, and “I have no choice but to tell you, you’re fired”.

This could possibly be the greatest gift idea this year in North America, if not the world.
