Mixtape: Video Nasties - I’d Rather Be Hot Knifing Pt. 1 (TLWS-MX002)
Mixtape taken from the Night Bus set w/ CFCF & JRC (Montreal/Blizzarts/Nov. 10).
Here, above, cracks in the buldings are filled with battered moonlight. The whole shadow of Man is only as big as his hat. It lies at his feet like a circle for a doll to stand on, and he makes an inverted pin, the point magnetized to the moon. He does not see the moon; he observes only her vast properties, feeling the queer light on his hands, neither warm nor cold, of a temperature impossible to records in thermometers.
This feeling of disconnection existed long before Night Bus, but the existence of Night Bus makes me feel just a little bit more comfortable. Thank you, CFCF and JRC, for allowing me to join in on the celebration.
This mixtape was mixed live. The tracks are as follows: 1. The Black Hole (dialogue) 2. Hype Williams - The Throning 3. Excepter - Rock Stepper 4. Acheron - Broken Ship 5. G-Side - Shots Fired 6. Colin Stetson - Judges 7. Chris Isaak - Wicked Game 8. Kanye West w/ Rick Ross - Devil in a New Dress 9. Clams Casino - Numb 10. The Clipse - Nightmares 11. The Black Hole (dialogue) 12. Video Nasties - The solar system dies of crib death. If that’s what it takes, then okay.

Video for CFCF’s “It Was Never Meant To Be This Way” off of his c28 cassette. I tried using Youtube to upload it but Paws Inc. deleted it within five hours. At like four in the morning. Say what you will about Jim Davis, but that’s dedication.
Like most of the others, this was mixed with the Edirol V4 and edited by Video Nasties. Gonna put it out there, I’m proud of this one.
For those in Montreal, this video will be screened at Il Motore on December 2nd. Performances by The Breezes, Play Guitar, and Beaver Shepard, and other video shorts. The night is called Count to Eleven and it’s $5 at the door.
