Hawaii, the haps and Subphonix

Posted in Audio, MuSaK, Scene, travel, TRNSL by msdisdain on November 5, 2009

I’m going to Hawaii the day after tomorrow. I’m excited. So excited to feel the familiar vibe, energy so strong, so brilliant and bewildering on my pores again. As much as I’m happy to venture, I can never stay away. Click your heels three times, Dorothy, and home I am. So if you’re in the area, as in on O’ahu, come and party with me. You can do so this Friday at one of the bestest monthlys Honolulu has to over:

First Fridays and Subphonix, the November09 edition, thrown by the excellent Pacific Jungle crew. Featuring DJs Toki, Zecha, MC Enemy and my very own Rogue State, not only will this nite be filled with awesome DNB, but I’m expecting good company, ultra-good vibes, enlightening bliss and celebratory madness.

See you this Friday:

Earth is Beautiful

Posted in hmmm, travel by msdisdain on October 17, 2009

i took these photos from an altitude of 35,000ft on a flight from San Francisco to Washington, Dulles and then proceeded to have an existential crisis/enlightenment. Why? Because Earth is beautiful, and sometimes it takes being miles above it to realize just how lucky we troopers are to have a place like Earth to call home.

in-flight wi-fi: what am i paying for?

Posted in Perks, Random?, travel by msdisdain on October 12, 2009

current altitude: 34,395 FT
current speed: 418MPH
current outdoor temperature: -55F
distance to go: 2,622 miles
current mood: wired from that airport latte; transcontinental with wi-fi!

all the mind-blowing, world-changing and revolutionizing things i have done with said wi-fi:
1. bask in glory that i has interwebs at 34,000 ft
2. chat with people, basking in glory that i has interwebs at 34,000 ft.
3. surf news networks only to hear nothing but more bad news
4. update fb and twitter about a) how my toes are cold b) how airplane bathrooms are gross and c) see 1
5. upload mobile photos of this assbackwards airbus:

6. wonder if i can sneak my computer into the bathroom where the only power terminal is to recharge.
7. gross out at the idea of sneaking into the bathroom where the only power terminal is to recharge.
Virgin America:

PROS:
1. in-flight wi-fi at a decent price.
2. club lighting with friendly club bouncers (i mean, flight attendants)
3. replaced lighbulbs – pinks and purples flooding the plane
4. the lead flight attendant introduced the other as “hot mama-rina”
5. you order everything online and it’s instantly delivered to you (hot tea, coffee, food etc)
CONS:
1. replaced lightbulbs – pinks and purples flooding the plane. “it’s too girly” -gay couple sitting next to me
2.  everything on Virgin is an advertisement for something else.
3. because this appears to be a club, men show no shame in hollering at the flight attendants (aka “mama-rina”)
4. once the lights go out it looks like an ordinary plane
5. you can’t just ask the flight attendant for a cup of tea. she’ll tell you to order it. even though you just did.
5a. you still have to ask the flight attendant for non-sugar sweetener. and then she tells you there’s a button on the computer to order non-sugar sweetener. only there isn’t.
