Because best things in life aren't things.
Through all of youth I was looking for you
without knowing what I was looking for
or what to call you I think I did not
even know what I was looking how would I
have known you when I saw you as I did
time after time when you appeared to me
as you did naked offering yourself
entirely at that moment and you let
me breathe you touch you taste you knowing
no more than I did and only when I
began to think of losing you did I
recognize you when you were already
part memory part distance remaining
mine in the ways that I learn to miss you
from what we cannot hold the stars are made

It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination.
Happy holidays to everyone!

There is something bizarrely heartwarming about raw sin/saw waves. Maybe it’s pacman & nintendo brainwashing a whole generation or maybe it’s the mathematical perfection they provide to our ears.Somehow our generation has deeply engrained the unnatural as the natural. Whatever it is, these sounds that no living creature’s ears had the opportunity to hear until a century ago are here, and they are here to stay.
To cut a long story short, I miss electroclash.

3 warm-up weapons of choice from the latter half of 2011. Mam delivers thumping french-touched, sample-crazy house music, while Miguel Campbell smashes everything out of the way with the sexiest track of the summer. If you’re feeling more relaxed and want to go with something with deeper feel to it, Tanner Ross’ enchants the ears with hypnotizing woodwind melodies and a very very fat bass.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
By Robert Frost

Richard X’s remix of Saint Etienne’s Only Love Can Break Your Heart (which itself is a 1990 cover of Neil Young) is melodic ride that resembles the experience of being love-struck. It is beautiful, naive and kind of expected. The euphoria fogs up your judgements and cleanses your senses of all objectivity that, the naive cheesiness of the track actually enhances the overall experience. I heard this heavenly remix very recently as a set opener and I was completely hooked from the very first second. I personally believe the instrumental version gives one the chance of appreciating the melodic subtleties and is also much better suited for dj sets.

Here’s Todd Terje’s new EP Ragysh released on Running Back.
Snooze 4 Love, as it name suggest, is a call to a cosmic dream, a hypnotic trance dance. For those who can’t get enough of these gentle arpegiated tickles, introverted Snooze 4 Love (Version) continues to lightly massage one’s craenium. If you just want to dance to a brilliant tune, Ragysh is the most dancefloor friendly track out of the 4 tracks featured in the EP.
