Many things have happened since I last updated the blog. There is now a Farced youTube channel, I’ve been DJing quite a bit and even scanned in some of the film that’s been sitting around for over two years. Last weekend I fell (off a bike), hit my head, had a concussion and suffered from “Post-Concussion Syndrome.” Seven days of a debilitating pounding headache, nausea and dizziness that I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Being a prisoner of my home for those days, I got a lot of quiet time activities done (when my new neighbor wasn’t loudly playing Lady Gag on her acoustic guitar). Namely finally scanning a bunch of negatives, new and old and working on mixtapes.

The first tape I made is for Luke, many, many years overdue. Good thing he’s in LA now, so I didn’t have to wait over a week for it to arrive in Australia to finally post it. The cover is a found photo I posted here in 2008 which couldn’t be more fitting for a film reviewer.

Naturally the tape is Maxell, not a coveted vintage one like in the link or the one Luke sent me a few months back (he made a big stink about that!) The first side is more upbeat and spastic whereas side B steadily becomes more placid.
