As a lover of all things cute and furry, I'm organizing this year's (inaugural?) Victoria Bunnarchy. I bandied it about with a few people and got a general consensus on March 22. Now I know this is also worldwide pillowfight day, but
really, we CAN do both. Pillowfight at 3pm, then seeing as people
will be loitering about anyway, hit the pubs! Create mayhem and chaos
downtown! Confuse locals and tourists alike! Make total asses of
ourselves (of which we do well)! Get arrested and spend the night in
the drunk tank! No wait, scratch the last one.
So, you may be asking yourself, what do I need to do to prepare
myself? Well, it's not rocket science people, get yourself some ears
and a tail at the very least (special prizes for best bunny outfit),
and it would be helpful to learn the bunny hop. Here's instructions
for the slackers out there:

That is all.
We'd love you to come and join us at Tost from 8.30 pm on Sunday March 23rd, to help celebrate long awaited Spring and the release of Henta's new electronic dream-pop album, "Daisy Dancing".
Henta, originally from the UK, is a singer/songwriter and she'll be performing 2 live sets with Marcell Marias, as well as performing songs with her special guests, DJ Muad'deep, David Miles Huber and Ludington GT.
We aim to create a chilled and downtempo evening with electronic grooves, engaging melody and Henta's strong and sensual vocals, together with some cool visuals and chocolate!
Cover charge $5 and discounted CDs will be available at the Merchandise Booth on the night.

This is the first of a quarterly newsletter regarding musical games/projects sponsored and administered by Beep Repaired <http://beeprepaired.com> and curated by yours truly.
The White Elephant Record Exchange Project was undertaken by 20 individuals in the late part of January 2008 and will air for the first time on Hollow Earth Radio <http://hollowearthradio.com> this wednesday March 19th at 9 pm pacific time and will re-air Thursday.
This project involved sampling, composition, and ultimately all kinds of sound making.
Participants were to find the "worst" and "most unusable" 12" vinyl records they could find. Those were then exchanged by random and by whatever method I saw fit. They then had to compose a piece of at least 1 minute 30 seconds (give or take) by only editing and 'creative' playback of the record itself. No pitch adjustment or time stretching/compressing, effects was allowed by digital means. Just cut and paste, layering, and volume adjustment. This comprises part 1.
These finished pieces were then given to the original chooser of the source record to 'remix' this time there were no restrictions except that the new piece be "based" on the one they were given. Anything goes.
The result is nearly 40 incredibly varied tracks that range from very hummable-mainstream-danceable, to abstract experimental soundscapes.
