....LMB: "Apologies"....

November 17, 2002

For about a year now, I've been frequently been playing a CD on my radio show by a fellow named "Baseck." Baseck's style is called "breakcore," sort of a mix of industrial, drum & bass, and experimental noise: distorted, loud, jumpy yet very danceable (so long as you pay attention).

Saw a great show last night that featured Baseck (along with our Kill Radio pals Mash Up Soundsystem) where I learned that I've been pronouncing the guy's name wrong. For a year (in my defense, I was instructed in the mispronunciation by folks more knowledgeable than myself). Although it is a ridiculous phonetic interpretation, I've been erroneously referring to the guy as "base-check," when the correct pronunciation is "basic." Which obviously makes more sense.

My apologies to Baseck/Basic. And my condolences on his having to leave L.A. for Milwaukee.

[edit]

See Baseck in action!

Nooo! He was rad!! I bought a few self-produced cd's off the guy a year ago, and he was a danged sweet fella who composed some of the most distortedly lovely soundscapes imaginable. Mil-fucking-waukee? Why? For the beer or something? and if so, again, I ask WHY?!??

boo hoo.

Milwaukee's not so bad. It just snows there once in awhile. You Cali people know what snow is, don't you?

It wasn't about Milwaukee per se, but Baseck seemed sad to be going. Sounded like he'd run out of money or something and was reluctantly returning.

I'm guessing that his Milwaukee trip has something to do with Addict/Distort Records, who are in Milwaukee, i think.

Both Baseck and Shane were wearing Addict shirts. You'll notice the "Regret" shirt with the mullet guy in the 'buy stuff' section.

Eric, I don't have any problem with *snow*, thank you very much...
;)
naw, I was just giving the lovely Heartland a tough time, thassall. Good-natured ribbing and all that. Chin up and all.
And as for said snow, I do *indeed* know what it is. It is that white stuff that falls from the sky in...Milwaukee.

Right?

Posted by: michele at November 18, 2002 02:58 PM

No, that's cheese that falls from the Wisconsin sky. I'm not from Milwaukee anyway. But thanks to global warming, it's still late summer in Ohio...or it feels like it anyway.

He got hooked up with Doormouse and got to play loads of parties in europe with him and then moved to Milwaukee where he gets to play way more often and people pack all the little bars where they have shows...Doormouse moved to florida recently but Baseck stayed and now walks through the snow in one pair of sneakers with holes...and his bank account is -$...the glamorous breakcore life ;)

That BLOWS that such a talented artist is broke.

I think we should take up a fundraising campaign to support all darkmatter/mashup/klangklang/twine artists.

Ok then. Er. Now, whom shall we hit up first?

Tales of Media Woe

Senate May Ram Copyright Bill- one of the most depressing stories of the day that didn't involve death or bombs. It's the music and movie industries' wet dream. It criminalizes peer-to-peer software makers, allows the government to file civil lawsuits on behalf of these media industries, and eliminates fair use. Fair use is the idea that I can use a snippet of a copyrighted work for educational, political, or satirical purposes, without getting permission from the copyright-holder first.

And most tellingly, the bill legalizes technology that would automatically skip over "obejctionable content" (i.e. sex and violence) in a DVD, but bans devices that would automatically skip over commericals. This is a blatant, blatant, blatant gift to the movie industry. Fuck the movie industry, fuck the music industry, fuck the Senate.

Music industry aims to send in radio cops- the recording industry says that you're not allowed to record songs off the radio, be it real radio or internet radio. And now they're working on preventing you from recording songs off internet radio through a mixture of law and technological repression (although I imagine their techno-fixes will get hacked pretty quickly).

The shocking truth about the FCC: Censorship by the tyranny of the few- blogger Jeff Jarvis discovers that the recent $1.2 million FCC fine against a sex scene in Fox's "Married By America" TV show was not levied because hundreds of people wrote the FCC and complained. It was not because 159 people wrote in and complained (which is the FCC's current rationale). No, thanks to Jarvis' FOIA request, we find that only 23 people (of the show's several million viewers) wrote in and complained. On top of that, he finds that 21 of those letters were just copy-and-paste email jobs that some people attached their names to. Jarvis then spins this a bit by saying that "only 3" people actually wrote letters to the FCC, which is misleading but technically true. So somewhere between 3 and 23 angry people can determine what you can't see on television. Good to know.

Reuters Union Considers Striking Over Layoffs- will a strike by such a major newswire service impact the rest of the world's media?

Pentagon Starts Work On War Internet- the US military is talking about the creation of a global, wireless, satellite-aided computer network for use in battle. I think I saw a movie about this once...

Conservative host returns to the air after week suspension for using racial slur- Houston radio talk show host (and somtime Rush Limbaugh substitute) Mark Belling referred to Mexican-Americans as "wetbacks" on his show. He was suspended for a couple of weeks, and then submitted a written apology for the racial slur to a local newspaper. But he seems to be using the slur and its surrounding controversy to boost his conservative cred with his listeners.

Stay Tuned for Nudes- Cleveland TV news anchor Sharon Reed aired a story about artist Spencer Tunick, who uses large numbers of naked volunteers in his installations and photographs. The news report will be unique in that it will not blur or black-out the usual naughty bits. The story will air late at night, when it's allegedly okay with the FCC if you broadcast "indecent" material. The author of this article doesn't seem to notice that Reed first claims that this report is a publicity stunt, but then claims it's a protest against FCC repression. I'd like to think it's the latter, but I'm not that much of a sucker.
