So, my weekend. Great, actually; despite me eating for England the entire time. Where the previous weekend was all about Lebanese, Kibby, Halloumi and Hookahs (oi! shut it!) this time it was Mexican food and more pertinantly, Sol beer. I'd forgotten about it really, but it all came back: in 1988, a cold Sol and a slice of lime was beer nirvana. Of course it's status as beer du jour was quickly superseded, in a dazzling blur we all followed every trend there was: we went through Grolsch with it's fancy china stoppers, giant cans of Sapporo with tops which completely removed to form a silver pint, Corona, Rolling Rock, you name it. The craze for Sol was forgotten as a welter of beer trends swarmed around us for the next five years. But it's worth noting that before Sol, choice was really limited: bottled beer meant Holsten Pils, or Light Ale. Sol was the first, and it's nice to give it some props.

OK, so that's about 80 feet of 360 air, followed by a 27 foot backside air. Tell me that's not amazing.

('tis about DJing)
The biggest, most important layer at the bottom is what tunes you play The next layer up of a bit less importance is what order they come in. The third layer is the manner in which they are blended into one another. The tip is mix trickery, scratching, eq-ing, FX yadda yadda Each layer relies upon that beneath itself or it's rendered pointless.
Another new year (yeah, I know, WHERE have I been....short answer? partying for xmas...) and i'm still listening to "ha!-ha!-ha!". It's over 25 years now (eep!) and it still fires my imagination like no other. I still listen with fresh ears, amazingly enough....
But anyway, HNY and all that.....
