SELF-PORTRAIT MEME



The Self-Portrait Meme that's, uh, sweeping The Blogosphere.

Hey, no one said I couldn't do a digital one.

A Me-Meme, eh?

There are no rules, really - it can be a doodle, an oil-painting or blurred super-8 film - the idea is to maybe reveal some aspect of yr inner psyche without actually physically revealing yrself. Unless, of course, you wanna do that. I like the idea of blogging as a sort of secret identity thing. I'd actually wear a mask n robes in real life, if I could.

Let's roll! I tag: John Eden, Martin Post-Implode and Dom Zero.

(Tho thinking about it, John's in pre-Woofah production mode, so probably won't have the time to tit about...so I might have to line up a replacement...)

KONTEXT: "PLUMES"

Really diggin' this track from Russian (?) producer Kontext (aka Stanislav Sevostyanikhin) , wh/ is due to drop soon-ish on Bristol-based label Immerse.

"Plumes" is liquid Machine-Age Funk: deep Post-Detroit smooothnessss powered by tiny, ticcing nano-engines. An oily, streamlined flashback to 1st-gen Modernist beats: panther-lean and nocturnal, a silver faux-futuristic Mercedes cruising the halogen-lit, 6-lane memebahn of Urban Bass music... ominous wisps of grey steam spiral skywards from chrome chimneystacks, while building-sized LCD-infoverts upload glimpses of naked skin flashframed with metallic retro-logos and produkt sublims...

Relax and sink back into your leatherette pod-seat: we're heading into the city...
