in the Red Rack'em (aka hot coins) mix & interview on cool in the pool mentioned upthread he mentions his different aliases and says this:

Roughly speaking Hot Coins is the cosmic, balearic, electro disco stuff.

a friend of mine just posted some thoughts to his facebook page, it's good stuff:

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=604087574&ref=profile#/note.php?note_id=76640447886&ref=nf

***SPOILER*** if you have not seen the season finale, read no further. also there will be a small spoiler about stephen kings' THE STAND. i'll let ya know when i get there. ****

so, it all comes down to what john locke told walt in season one. the black rock vs. the white rock. good vs. evil. jacob vs. esau. we now have in place the pieces of the final war. we also have the shucking off of the sub-plots that have made the story so mind bending. of course that could be a bad thing for those of us who love that aspect of the LOST game. anyway, some observations.

RELIGION & PHILOSOPHY
we now know why egypt has been so important to the storytelling in lost. the egyptian book of the dead is the foundation of all the worlds dominant religions (i know some will debate its' importance to buddhism but heck, most folks who follow it don't consider buddhism a religion anyway). so, LOST is exploring the very nature of our religious tendencies. jacob as a christ like benevolent god. esau as the serpent. the island the garden of eden (or mu, or atlantis), a place of alchemy where scientific, magical, & spiritual properties co-exist.

the philosophy part is as simple & complex as free will versus pre-determination. jacob placed our heroes in their spots giving them the chance to make the right choices that will lead to their redemption. the choice is always theirs. esau manipulates the weak, seeing the human animal as a fixed system that will always make the same choices over & over again.

WHAT ILANA SAID TO RICHARD ALPERT
"what lies in the shadow of the statue ?"
alpert: "he who will protect/save us"
(thanks to all the latin scholars over at darkufo for that quick translation last night)
so, my take on this is that jacob is not only our heroes redemptive figure, he is humanity's redemptive figure. the island itself is the reset button or lynchpin for the entire world. jacob & esau fight not just for the souls of the castaways but for the fate of the entire world. will humanity break the cycle of constant war or find some form of redemption (what this redemption will look like i'm not sure of yet).

A MAN WHO THOUGHT HE WAS A GOD
eloise, widmore, ben, the so called leaders of the others have all thought themselves masters of the game. they have all tried to take control of the island. they are just wannabes. the chumps in the casino thinking they've got a system, when the house always wins. each was exiled in some manner for their hubris (though we have not witnessed eloise in this manner, so i'll reserve judgement on that one).

sic & i went to see The Revenge last weekend and one of his sets from that night is up here: http://www.pulseradio.net/studio/Co-Op#studio/Co-Op

i got there too late to hear most of it but it sounds pretty great!

jesus is the man (jabba hands), Friday, 29 May 2009 01:04 (5 years ago) Permalink

noted that night: someone dubbing themself The Revenge should probably look big and intimidating, not like a kid bunking off his fourth-form revision:

(after handing over to Motorcitysoul he went and played another hour and a half in the front room, hope both's other sets get posted too)

The Revenge's BiS mix absolutely kills.

The Revenge is playing some 'upmarket' bar round my way in like a month. This is pretty cool but no-one will care

Regulate Edit left me wanting more or different or something. It just isn't nearly as good as the original version that includes the Michael McDonald chorus.

i really wanted to hate the Regulate edit, but it was actually pretty decent. i am, however, stuggling to figure out why someone thought that "Lost In Music" needed a filter house mix. MAKE IT STOP.

the Atlantic Conveyor EP on Untracked is absolutely phenomenal. i'll be posting it to discohorror later today and will hit you guys back with a link

Great thread. R&B Drunkie has been my favorite track to play for almost a year now. Sounds way too good every time

sovietpanda, Thursday, 2 July 2009 18:54 (5 years ago) Permalink

the new Instruments of Rapture by the OOFT boys is another winner! not *quite* as good as "Just a Memory" for me (which Herb Alpert tune is that, btw?) but i'm feeling it. out soon...

mikebee (BATTAGS), Friday, 3 July 2009 06:46 (5 years ago) Permalink

R&B Drunkie is awesome. I emailed the record label to see if they were repressing the other week, but they haven't replied so I guess not.

I agree! I haven't really heard anything by The Revenge that lived up to Night Flight, which is absolutely amazing.

man i found a white label much-faster rmx of 'love light in flight' about 2 yrs ago that i kinda prefer

"kinda prefer the og janet track

― zzz (deej)"

i like both, i keep the Janet 12" next to R&B Drunkie in the box. i have been playing the Janet much more often recently.

"why?

― dan138zig (Durrr Durrr Durrrrrr)"

i mean, that concept doesn't sound horribly ironic to you? it does to me. they pulled it off nicely tho, without sounding like a joke.

i didn't realise that they were behind that Cadillac joint. that's another one i don't care much for. there are so many better Hot Chocolate jams!
