  1. now now people, no need to lay down categorizations. a bunch of wayward youth at an mtv hiphop party dont exactly strike me as the creme de la creme of good society, but dance music lovers are denigrated just as often for being on drugs all the time. people that start conflict like this for no reason are just ghetto in general...
  2. I always thought that a better solution than banning smoking outright would be to enforce a tobacco use license whereby if an establishment wanted to allow smoking, it would have to have 1) a designated smoking section 2) a set of code requirements for the smoking section that would define a minimum level of ventilation and air cleaning apparatus, which would make the air in the smoking section nearly as clear as the non-smoking section. ionizers are key to cleaning an airspace of smoke-sized particles, and theres no reason not to have them considering their relative inexpense and easy operation. that way everybody can be happy. since the smoking ban, i've been relishing how I can come home from a night of clubbing and not stink of smoke, but at the same time i do like to enjoy the occasional cigarette while out drinking or dancing. with proper air cleaning systems in place, i think that i could have the best of both worlds. thoughts?

    the ritm show passed out diffracting lens glasses, making all the stage effects a lil extra trippy
  5. what a load of right-wing bullshiat, there are too many holes in this guy's logic to count...
  6. i'm also dying to get my hands on some live sets. i've taken a hard look around, but the only thing i've been able to find is the sandra collins/pete tong sessions from radio1. please gimme if you have any live sets from ultra
  7. worddd up on this one... here's the rest of the lineup btw - Royksopp (Live!), DJ Harvey, Miguel Migs, Lisa Shaw (live), Jimpster, Sven Van Hees, Audio Bullys (Sound System), Aya (live), VHS or Beta (live)
  8. "horrid" is a rather exaggerated statement, eh? md compression schemes are far better than mp3, and even an mp3 recording would be more than appropriate for a a live setting where you have a lot of noise to begin with. here's a paper that describes the md compression result as -better- than cd quality ->link. imho the recording bottleneck exists not at the media/compression being used, but in the microphone equipment. you can use a no-compression dat recorder, but the show's still gonna sound like dirt with a $40 bestbuy sony mic. a good pair of mics can make a cassette recorder sound good. but i'm not here to debate md quality anyway, just wanted to know if i can bring my equipment in. well, if i can manage to get just my md recorder itself past the gate that should work, since my mics are pretty undetectable. we'll see what happens i guess.. or maybe its not worth the trouble... <sigh>..
  9. If that's your view of things, you'd probably be quite surprised at what i can pull off. i use separate binaural mics (one hanging over each shoulder or ear), powered by a tiny amp, which allows the mic to handle much higher sound pressures. the cardoid design allows the mics to be pointed at the speaker stacks, and the end result is low noise and a good sensitivity response regardless of whether the music is playing heavy or softly. And of course there's no better medium for live music than minidisc. The recordings i make with this setup don't sound any worse than a typical 'live' (non-studio) essential mix. you hear some crowd noise every so often, but being able to fine tune the stereo imaging by moving around or adjusting my mics yields a very reasonable recording.
