Some pics from Rainbow, since you asked. :)

My camera ran out of batteries on day one so I didn't get any of the rad stuff that happened later on. :(

In our Teepee.

it was!

here's one that someone took outside our Teepee at 2am which starts to do justice to the light installations happening in the sky. To me, on shrooms at the time, it looked like the sky was split in two and a stairway to heaven at the same time.

thanks for posting photos cob i just posted some in photothread today

so many other great ones about. i find it hard to take too many, much rather be enjoying it. that vicenzi guy had some great shots last year too, and yes outstanding ones the best i've seen this year too!
guess/hope he's getting paid for it..

really needa get me a 70-200 f/2.8L ISII...but then you look like a bit of a douche...hate the white canon lenses, nikon black much more stealthy. though its hard to be stealthy with a 2 foot lens of any colour..

yeh I'm the same way, I can't seem to catch anything exciting, because i am too busy enjoying whatever is happening rather than worrying about photos :P

oh and i thought your username here was different from your flickr username lol

and somehow, at a festival, if you put a holga lens on your camera, people question whether it is a camera at all...
"is that a camera?"
huh? of course, it is not cake!

nice man, gh2 awesome for video with h4x

there may be a gh3 coming this year. rumors of 5d mk3 (overdue), 7d mk2 etc too, but people who keep waiting/worrying about upcoming products never get anything.
better off just getting something good and using it!

i've been thinking about getting a sony NEX-5N as a 2nd smaller cam for a while..great in low light & 50p/slowmo 1080 video!

M34 is the new way for me - get some pretty amazing video out of GH2 at high bit rates. even do keying work with it.

BU first run in a loooooong time going much better than expected. It's been months and months and months, but managed 5km in a reasonable time, easy-peasey. Apparently walking everywhere with a gabillionty-seven kilo backpack keeps you from becoming a total waddler. O'course, the first one is always easiest, but still... :retzielikes:
BU spring break - one whole week off!
BU/eek my mum coming to visit next week. First time in 'merica, hates 'mericans. Should be good.

Dancing is banned in all clubs here! Some apply for licenses for particular events, but on the whole, dancing is FORBIDDEN! Makes it that much more fun in some ways. hehe.

edit: oh, and everything shuts at 11pm. :?

Thanks chaps :D

It was the Steve Bug gig I went to on the weekend. His name rang a bell, but I had no idea what he makes/plays - I just needed to gtfo of the house. If he was the one I think he was, his set was marginally less boring that the other ones, but serially, we're talking mebbe 4 tunes that would've made me dance if I weren't on a mission to not stop moving.

Modeselektor is go, but hopefully will find other tings before then. I'm going a bit mental not having any kind of friends/social life and all I can think to do (apart from drinking) is music.

nic wrote:retzie would hate 6th borough IMO


Chicago has no beats scene of any kind, so I'm trying a new strategy of convincing myself to like house. Reckon it's going to be a whole lot of shit I hate, tbh, but I've gotta at least try...

Wish I had a "Play some breaks" t-shirt.

Yar, I'm kinda getting that vibe, since I somehow still know most of the tracks on NSB :lol:

But still - DnB, not-shit hip hop?? I do not dig dubstep for dancing. Even setting aside the fact that those are the gigs chicks in bikinis go to here (serially, WTF?), it just doesn't make me wanna dance. Secret house music that I've never heard and magically like seems to be my best hope.

NFI about crack TBH. Still living the Oklahoma meth dream :lighta:

BU finally getting proper earplugs. As lolz would have it, the closest place to me is the bloke who makes in-ear shizz for possibly everybody who has ever stepped onto a stage. For cereal, the Stones to fucken Beyonce. Felt like a total retard going there, but it is down the road and they only cost 250 bucks :retzielikes:

Oh, also BU acing the hearing test :)

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, why didn't someone tell me underground is where the party's at??

Went to Modeselektor - music was good, but I didn't realise it was an official 'show', which mean headliners at 11am, lights-up at 1am. While everyone was milling around wondering what to do next, some chick decided to pick a fight with me ( :lol: ) - apparently I had been dancing with her husband. Fair lolz, considering (a) I can't actually dance with anyone even if I try (:shuffler:) and (b) I hadn't been near any blokes all night. Talking to some randoms in the hopes of escaping her led to an invite to the raev, which was pretty good. Best laz0rz I've seen anywhere here. The smoke can fuck right off, though, and I could do without the dodgy as fuck neighbourhood where cabs are never to be found. But apart from that, got a solid 6 or so hours of dancing and have some new friends :)

BU feeling much less like a sad old cat lady* :retzielikes:



*except for actually having a cat.

For sure. I'm more than happy to go out on my own, but when you can't even hear about parties without knowing people, you are all kinds of fucked. Shithouse system, imo. Excited to have an in now, though!

BU another rad night dancing :D

Legit show this time, put on by various Burning Man crews. Music started off a bit naff, but kicked off later on. Generally, I'm not an MC person, but fuck me, MC Zulu absolutely killed it. Am I really, really slow for not already knowing about him?? Also discovered there is not-fruity house I actually like. Thank fuck for that! I didn't think an entire city could be obsessed with completely shithouse music...

In other news, I have a minor ethical dilemma. Is it bad that I have given my number to boys (when asked), pretty much just because I want to hear about parties? It's not like I've made it look like I'm interested... Stoopid secret gigs system!
