Asleep in Aeon.

Asleep in Aeon by R-Lex

This is a Coil mix I made last night in tribute to Peter Christopherson. Tracklisting is on the Soundcloud page.

The Dreamer is Still Asleep.

Hush; may I ask you all for silence?
The dreamer is still asleep
May the goddess keep us from single vision
And Newton's sleep

The dreamer is still asleep
The dreamer is still asleep
He's inventing landscapes in their magnetic field
Working out a means of escape
We'll cut across the crop circles

The seer says no
Not much time left for these escape attempts
Look at it this way
In ten years' time
Who'll care? Who'll even remember?
One dies like that, deep within it
Almost inside it
It's there for a reason

I'll give you my old address
And take that little book
To tear and cut the paper

The beginning is also the end
Time defines it, time defines it
It will end
Like close friendship
Nothing could be further
We forget the space between people and things
Is empty
We forget, and don't notice the loss

Crossing into venerable degeneration
Such radiant pollution
The god with the silver hand surveys this vast contamination
The dreamer is still dreaming
The dreamer is still dreaming

In the heart of your heart
Your eye remains
Is that hurt you? Is that blister you call loveless?
Your whole life is a cold slow shock
Your whole life is a cold slow shock

Take all your time
Track the shabby shadow down
Through hissy mists of history

The dreamer is still dreaming
The dreamer is still dreaming

Hush; may I ask you all for silence?
Will he wake in time to catch the sunset?
Hush; may I ask you all for silent?
May I ask you all for silent?

My Top 10 Records of 2009.

My perpetually late list is here! Rejoice, disagree, call me a jerk, whatever. But the first person to use the word "Fail" as a noun is getting blocked.
Navel-gazing bullshit behind the cut...Collapse )

10 years in the game.

My first time ever DJing for a dancefloor was at a shitty little indoor skatepark in Haifax, right across from where I went to High School. You can check out a post (including playlist) I made on usenet about it right here. Aside from a six month period when I first moved to Vancouver in 2004, I've been playing pretty regularly ever since. I've had some detours, got into some bad habits and been involved in more failed nights then I'd care to mention. But I'm still at it, still love doing it and am proud to have residences at two of Vancouver's most prestigious and longest-running alternative nights. That first night was 10 years ago, exactly. Tonight me and DJ Pandemonium are gonna leave the dancefloor at Celebrities a smoking ruin. Love & Sex & Industrial is a special party for me, a decade in the game and still loving every minute of it. Mad love to DJ John MacMaster for getting me started and for teaching me so much. Love to DJs Rune, Tobias and Miss Hell for being my early partners in crime, and to the Blender crew for my first Vancouver residency. Special love to my brother DJ Contrasoma for constantly making me step my game up just to keep pace with him, La Gotha Nostra fool. Love to DJ Catherinna, and Betti Forde and the other Sin peeps for making the parties so wild. And a thousand thank yous to DJ Pandemonium, who's tireless efforts and support keep making it happen in Van City and for me personally. And as dopey as it sounds, thanks to everyone who danced, or made a request or asked after a song. Hallelujah, kid.
