Shok on Acoustic Drums
All other music by Herwig - Backing Vocals by Juliet Beaven (8mm)
"I wanted to combine punk with early new wave ala Killing Joke meets The Police". "The session went for a few short hours. Herwig had a kit and I brought some of my drums and such. I listened to the song a few times and went for it. We did several takes, resulting in what you hear." - Shok (Recorded December 2006)

So... around Midnight, Halloween, my friend, Nick tells me to meet him at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. I had just turned off my computer and was headed to sleep... BUT... I knew this would be a crazy event!
The annual MAROON 5 (yes, that cheesy band) throws a massive event, apparently. Brendan Orourke went with me to join Nick Launay & Jon Marie Mack. FREE FOOD, DRINKS, etc... a huge outdoor fest with IN-N-OUT food trucks and more... Lindsay Lohan walked by us in a Nurse outfit, Paris Hilton was right by us in an Alice In Wonderland outfit. Lukas Haas was beside me for a while...
I do not make a habit of being at an A-list event, but it happened. Surprisingly, people were very relaxed and I hit the french fries cart more than once ;) (I do not drink alcohol, but I surely eat food) Apparently, Christina Aguelelalalearia, Kirsten Dunst and a slew of other people were there too. Anyhow... I did go out on Halloween after all. Photo set to follow as time permits.

1. Electric Delorean
3. Nike Mag Shoes
Electric exotic cars are beginning rival the power and glamour of the petrol-war driven fuel based cars. The rebooted DeLorean Motor Company, in collaboration with with Epic EV, will have a new STEEL beast on the road by 2013. The DMC-12 runs on Lithium-ion batteries (unlike the FLUX CAPACITOR) for the rear placed motor. Expected is a $90-100K price range. The interior has been updated to dock your mobile phone, etc.

Stunning, Breathtaking, addictive, calming set in a cold but warm and placid distant world of adventure is what I can tell you and I hope you are delighted as much as I am." --- MyLiveTube April 2008

am certainly looking forward to hearing "AHK-toong BAY-bi Covered", the covers album included with the December issue of Q magazine, available October 26th.
Which artist interpretations are you most curious to hear?
I am eager to hear Gavin Friday (Virgin Prunes) as it is no secret that U2 was highly influenced by Virgin Prunes. Hearing Depeche Mode and Patti Smith and even Trent Reznor will be interesting too.

U2 - Even Better Than the Real Thing (Jacques Lu Cont Mix)
Damien Rice - One
Patti Smith - Until The End Of The World
Garbage - Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses
Depeche Mode - So Cruel

The first Prince Purple Party recap
There was lots of dancing, smiles, Prince songs and purple.
Positive energy was abound as you grooved, gyrated and got down to the music.
The fashion was spectacular! You are a gorgeous lot!
It was a great way to celebrate a birthday and I thank everyone who participated including everyone dancing, the DJs who spun the music with me (Jason Savvy, Jack Stauss & Henry Self), The Holding Co. (venue), Brian Erzen photography, Lina Lecaro (LA Weekly) and the amazing aerial silk artistry of Pamela Samuelson. Watching her attach and dismantle the silk from the rafters was quite intense!
My feet were sore from Prince-esque dance moves in my tall white boots, but it was worth it ;)
If you have photos from Saturday, please send links.
Here is what I spun from 1:30am until 3am (other sets will be added)
P - Let's Go Crazy
P - Delerious
p - Dance On
Morris Day & The Time - Cool
P - New Position
P - Needanotherloverholeinyohead
Mazarati - 100mph
P - Mountains

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"
The boy takes the two quarters and leaves. "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"
The boy licked his ice cream cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!"

Serbia wants U.N. to honor Tesla birthday
BELGRADE, Serbia, July 11 (UPI) -- Serbia says it will ask the United Nations to declare the birth date of scientist and inventor Nikola Tesla International Science Day.
In 2010 Serbia declared Tesla's birthday, July 10, as Science Day in Serbia with events drawing attention to Tesla's accomplishments, the news agency Tanjug reported.

Tesla was born in the region of Austria-Hungary that is today Croatia and built his career in the United States.
Best remembered for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Tesla was an important figure in the early days of commercial electricity, whose patents and theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power systems.
The events of Science Day in Serbia are intended to bring science closer to the people and show young generations interest in science can be beneficial, the Center for Promotion of Science said in a statement.

An exhibition dubbed De Revolutionibus traces the history of science back to 1500, the year of the beginning of the scientific revolution, the Serbian news agency Tanjug reported.
