Before there was slow motion. There was this.
I think this is the slowest fight I have ever seen. The big Lizard/Dinosaur man just looks like he wants a little hug, Captain!
This is pretty gruesome but I rate anyone that cuts their stomach open and tries to strangle their opponent with their own large intestine.
Code of the Dragon
Actually, I think this is pretty cool.

Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
There are some pretty special moments in this one. The jacket throw at the begging being one of them - but I actually really wanted to BE in this band by the time the guitar solo kicked in.
Red Hot Chilli Peppers - By the way
I didn't know whether to put this in or not because the lead singer is actually so great. But more great in a weird crap way than an actual good, I'd pay money to see way.
Shit rap battle.
Everyone on this show is really weird. The guy on the left most probably has cerabal pausey but comes out fighting around 2m47 with some amazing lines like: "You're like Rosie O'Donnal at a bisexual bridal shower". Winner.
Europe - The Final Countdown.
All songs should be sung in this accent.

And let me tell you - shit is going to go DOWN. Here is a clue as to some of the things you can expect to see in the form of a mathematical equation.

This fat hating ad is going in a slightly different route from the soft porn adverts we usually see from PETA; featuring the likes of Jodie Marsh and Pamela Anderson exclaiming "I'd rather go naked than wear fur!" - er, big fucking deal? I don't rally think it's such an astonishing statement when your whole career has been built around you flashing your tits.
Er - do they really Jodie? I didn't have any udders last time I checked.
Going by their previous ad campaigns, PETA obviously think that Vegetarianism (and especially Veganism - seriously, have you ever met a sexy/sane Vegan?) isn't very sexy. The pictures of bloody, disembowled foxes and cats (who have probably just been run over by a car) teamed with the nerdy/insane panfletting look isn't particulary appealing to the younger generation they're obviously trying to appeal to.
But one of those little nutjobs has obviously got at least one screw fixed tight because they've realised that sex sells!
Sex + Vegetarianism = Sexy vegetarianism.
Sex + Celebrity culture + Saving the ickle wickle bunny wabbits = Duping people into giving us money so we can make bombs to kill doctors who are trying to save human lives.
It's simple math!
I'd just like to see how many of these newly signed up celebrities would refuse to be treated with a drug that was tested on animals if they got, say, a life-threatening disease? I'm pretty sure Jodie and Pam's silicone implants were tested on animals before they were shoveled into their breasts?
Hurrah for hypocrisy.

She is a gay, gay man trapped inside a 20 year old womans body. Saying that - she has an incredibly flat chest, straight hips and sort of does look like a boy in the face...but I prefer to go on the assumption that she's an unbelievably camp woman.
UPDATE: Yep, she's a boy.

Kevin Saunderson looked every bit the Detroit techno pioneer as he stepped into Hearn Street Car Park’s limelight last Saturday. Smooth, understated, assured, he slinked his way on and meandered around his old hooks like the cat that had had plenty of the cream but was now willing to share it around. He’s back on the road with a refreshing duality of purpose; not only is he promoting his new ‘History Elevate’ retrospective, the title of which tells its own story, but he’s seeking inspiration for fresh material for his now two decade-old project, ‘Inner City’, which draws back together main vocalist Shanna Jackson (aka Paris Grey) and Kevin’s wife, Ann. This was an extremely rare opportunity to see these three old cats prowl the boards once more, and they didn’t disappoint.
Mr. Saunderson showed a subtle sense of occasion and an excellent sensitivity to the nature of this now regular East London dance venue. He was able to make the car park seem grander than it is with some stadium-worthy rhythms when out on his own, whilst reining the crowd in for the live stuff later on, a transition he skilfully manned without pomp or swagger. Notable was his readiness to communicate with the crowd; up close you could often see a wry smile or a raised eyebrow as he drew the nicely balanced collective on the other side of the decks towards him in more ways than one. This rang true with his recent comments that UK crowds are acutely aware of what’s happening with dance music, and have been for many, many years. Where better to start your inspiration-drawing tour than in a city where you feel you have to set the precedent for what comes afterwards; both in terms of your live performance and for future material.
Paris Grey and Ann Saunderson had a ball as “Good Love” and “Hallelujah” rang out over the Hearn Street crowd, and Ann’s husband looked delighted to have stepped out of the limelight and beamed with pride as he looked on as the fruits of distant labours were picked and juiced readily. There was a lovely moment as Saunderson offered the controls over to one of his chosen remixers, Claude VonStroke. Two big men exchanged a glance and a genuine grin apiece, the like of which you rarely see in today’s booth. VonStroke didn’t disappoint, seamlessly inviting the crowd to spread across the bays once more, but tonight was about Kevin Saunderson and the return of ‘Inner City’ to live prominence. It was a proper treat to see such frontrunners take things back whilst moving things forward with such stature and humility. Hats off Eastern Electrics.

SO. Summer if officially upon us (even though the weather now resembles a torrential pissy river of doom).
We're collaborating with AITBF (Adventures in the Beetroot Field) who organise some of the finest live-music events in all the land. We went to STAG AND DAGGER back in May and recorded the likes of Thunderheist, Rusko and Crytal Fighters. On August 1st you'll be able to find us at FIELD DAY doing more of the same, getting the tastiest aural morsels out of musicans and punters alike. We'll be editing these two events together for a 'BEST of AITBF' show...
Next weekend we'll be at SECRET GARDEN PARTY with our spirtual leader Malcome the red caravan. Come and find us! We're so excited we walk around with sodden pants all day. Literally incontinent with anticipation. Expect FUN and GAMES. See below for clues...

Well, lucky for me I received one of these emails the other day - this was from someone called John Duke, offering me a 40% share in his deceased customers savings! Bingo!
"From Thompson J Duke.
Bank Commerciale Du Burkina Faso (BCB)
I am MR. THOMPSON J DUKE. working in the ACCOUNTING
DEPT OF BANK COMMERCIALE DU BURKINA FASO (BCB).
I know that this message will come to you as a surprise
and I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust
and confident that i am about to repose on you for the
mutual benefit of our both families.
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum
of($14.5)Fourteen Million five hundred thousand Dollar
to your account. This money has been dormant for years
in our bank without claim. I want the bank to release the
money to you as the nearest person to our deceased
customer, the owner of the account died along with his
supposed next of kin in an air crash since 2003.
I don't want the money to go into our bank treasurer as
an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I contacted
you so that the bank can release the money to you as the
next of kin to the deceased customer.
Please i would like you to keep this proposal as a top
secret and delete it if you are not interested. Upon
receipt of your reply, I will give you details on how the
business will be executed and also note that you will
have 40% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to
handle this business with me, hoping to hear from you
as soon as possible.
Mr.Thompson J Duke
Sounds good, right? I ask for more information...
Thank you for your response and I am ready to work with you
and strongly assuring you that provided you follow my instructions
perfectly well, we will not have any problem in getting transaction
I am also giving you full guarantee and assurance that you
will never regret anything at last, in the course of realizing
transaction with me, provided that you have clearly brought out
your full mind and trust to work with me, towards our benefit
and interest .I believe that if we are ment to come to know
ourselves through this business relationship, so let it be.
There are opportunities which may come ones way in
a lifetime, but all it takes, is one's personal decision and
principles to forge ahead." Of course, good risks can be taken
to achieve success and that is what i strongly believe ".
I will want you to understand that in the event of death of any of
our clients who does not leave a receiving next-of-kin in his/her form,
an enquiry is usually set up to search out a possible relative to claim
his/her estate and this search has been concluded without us locating
any of his next-of- kin. It is in the course that I have decided to make
use of this opportunity and portray you as the next-of-kin / beneficiary
to the deceased customer for safety and subsequent disbursement
of funds to your nominated account, hence i am very sure that nobody
is coming for it and i don't want my bank to turn this money over to the
state's abandoned-property division or unclaimed property office.
We shall be required to make some financial commitments to actualize this project,
but it will not be much that both of us cannot handle.
I have also arranged on how to obtain the death certificate from the
registrar of the locality in Benin where the death took place and also
on how to translate it here in Burkina Faso, all these arrangements took
me more than one year to completion, (you will now send to me your full
names, contact address such as city, zip or postal code and your date of
birth & tel/fax numbers) so that i will use your detailed information to
complete the process and obtain the kinship certification and translate
the death certificate in your favour.
Once this is done, I will send you this form with back up letter.
It is on this form that you fill out your bank account
information, where you would want funds remittance to be effected to, as
soon as you complete the form, you will send it directly to the foreign
operations department (Head office) with reference to all legal documentations
and entry forms already submitted on your behalf .
If you are afraid of using your present account, then you can open a new
account for this transaction as soon as possible, but one thing assure you
is that nothing will ever happen to your account. I really want us to treat
everything concerning this transaction with uttermost secrecy.
We are not going to breach international financial laws or to
face any anti-money laundering law charges. We would not breach any law that
could land us into problem or process this transaction illegal as all process
will be pure legal.
As you can see that the transaction is risk free and legal, like i have assured you
earlier before now, and on your side, you will be maintaining absolute
information and absolute secrecy throughout the duration of the transaction,
and normally you will be responding like a true next-of-kin who wish to speed
up the release and transfer of his inheritance.
Please you have to provide time for this transaction in our own interest and
also you have been advised to keep this transaction a "top secret" as i am
still in active service and intends to resign honourably from the services of
the bank, as soon as I conclude this transaction with you.
Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
Where do I sign?

Apart from the massive slapping fight that me and a few others partook in for about 20 minutes (many of us had bleeding lips by the end of it) the best time I had was watching 2manyDJs play.
It has long been known that I have a mild obsession with Soulwax/2manyDJs.
I pre-ordered the DVD about 2 months before it came out (it was worth the wait) and try to see them at any given occasion.
If you've listened to our report from the secret Soulwax show you'll probably get an idea of how over excited I get at their shows.
Anyway, instead of just your standard DJ set where you're just watching someone put records on they had the album cover of every song that they played with amazing flash animation to add a bit of humour.
But no, no. The piece de resistance was when they exploded huge streamers into the crowd which hung from the ceiling and thousands of bits of confetty that made the whole dance tent look like it was snowing. Wow. My love is confirmed.

Every so often you see an event you feel you should queue for. Dance School at the ICA slotted snugly into that bracket, so a couple of hours on The Mall was the least I could offer in return for what promised to be a mix and blend of some of club culture’s more seasoned selectors. The excellent creatures at Dollop showed a real appreciation of the wave of nostalgia that’s threading its way through nightclubbing at the moment; syrupy disco, 90s hip-hop, UK garage and plenty of the Balearic gave a platform for a straight-up shindig to rival anything laid on anywhere else on Saturday night. Without question, the ICA was where to be. The promoters knew it, the staff knew it, and as it all slinked together, the crowd knew it too.
The whole of the ICA was transformed into a club-space, so its subtle white walls were awash with neon. There was plenty of giddy anticipation as the Night Train DJs gave things a soulful start, and when Work It took over the crowd was certainly at its happiest. They’ve operated at the ICA before, and their warm embrace of 90s hip-hop and R’n’B can’t help but draw broad grins en masse. In the main theatre, Rinse FM’s DJs showed how a dangerously laid back roll through some seminal UK garage still gets even the most eclectic of crowds up and down collectively. Spyro looked almost embarrassed at how much the crowd lifted at the first drop of his needle. He epitomised the effortless cool that tends to go arm in arm with those associated with the capital’s premier piration-steppas.
Cocadisco treated the main bar to a challenging soundscape from the aurally-arresting, ever-alluring Leila who borrows her space from Warp Records. For me, her sound would have been suited better to one of the darker less chatty rooms, as at times all I wanted to do was cock my head and gaze. The highlight for me was undoubtedly seeing DJ History legend Bill Brewster charm the knickers off the main bar area. He drizzled his dubby disco around the place with a subtle sense of occasion, peering out over the decks and surveying the scene with the same sensitivity with which he writes and lives. Read him, but don’t let him turn you to Grimsby Town!

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs are the newest signings to the London/Berlin based Greco Roman label.
The twosome have been injecting massive amounts of dino bass into our lives for a while now so we thought we'd share the wealth and have a little chat with them...
Hello, who are you then?
We are Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, and we are up for a soundclash ... anyone?
What kind of dinosaur are you?
Lots. Mostly stegosaurus in appearance, but in spirit ...
How would you describe your live shows?
Quite loud and chaotic. There is a strong element of spontaneity that frequently backfires. Its an equipment breaking session that you can dance to. Well we hope you can dance to it, you might just stand there drinking your drink feeling sad about the recession.
Who are your totally enormous extinct influences?
Currently the weather and what it's doing to everyone.
Favourite dino joke?
I heard someone say something funny about T-rex's having real issues with how tiny their arms are, but i can't really remember, maybe because they can't even reach their own nipples ... The gay dinosaur one still gets me.
Boxman vs. Klaus in a dance off: Who would win?
That probably depends on the category, Klaus would win in a minimal techno mince-off, but Boxman would take him to school in the interpretive dance battle.
Any collaborations in the pipe line?
Where can we see you play next?
Saturday 6th June at Cargo , Saturday 13th June in Bristol, and a Pure Groove in-store on Tuesday 16th June for the launch of our new EP.

Have you found yourself being a bit more calorie conscious now the summer is coming?
With predictions of a long hot summer you are, at some point, going to have to bare that little bump of blubber that you've developed to keep you warm over the previous winter months.
Gym's are expensive and dieting is too fucking hard, so what are you going to do? Hide indoors whilst all your thin friends are frolicking in the glorious sunshine? Tanned, sweaty bodies writhing up and around each other over another great game of rounders?
No, no. Not you. Because you've got Arnie.
A couple of decades ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger made an amazing audio work out tape to the sounds of Gladis Knight, The Weather Girls and Denice Williams - how hetro can you get?
With the help of the ex-Terminator and Governor of California, you too will be able to have shoulders that 'will be so big you will have difficulty fitting out of the door'.
This is a 13 day plan, so keep checking back to get your next taste of the Schwarzenegger.
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THE WHOLE WORK OUT PLAN IN ONE EVENING AFTER CONSUMING ALCOHOL - the Showerman got a bit over excited at the thought of being as pumped as Arnie and couldn't walk for 3 days afterwards.

Have a listen to the footage from the Peanut Butter Jelly Time warehouse party a couple of Sunday's ago. Lots of jelly filled fun was had.
So have a listen on the player to the right, or if you're extra good you would have subscribed to the podcast and it will already be downloaded into your iTunes ready for you to listen to. Excellenté.
We're doing another PBJT collaboration next Sunday bank holiday (24th) at Monkey Chews in Camden...more information about that to come soon...

Well, in your eye bitches! Le Cool think we're cool too...and that's probably the coolest you can get.
So, why don't you join the gang and come to the OFFICIALLY COOL WASTEradio pub quiz this Sunday, 3pm-12am (quiz starts at 5pm), Upstairs at the Horse & Groom pub on Curtian Road?
Saturday, 11 April 2009
And I don't mean that in a derogative, 'uhh, you're so gaaaayy maaann!' way. I mean it in the 'holy crap, did he just grope his arse?' way.
Granted, they're not your typical macho, rugby playing men who have a bit of bum time in the showers after a match and then go home and wank over their wives back whilst looking in the mirror....but I think they're definitely on their way there.
Here's a little conversation they had recently:
Murat: You're so fucking gay it makes me sick
Murat: have a wank
Jonangelo: when are you back
Murat: Monday night
Murat: I know
Great isn't it?
Jonangelo: how am i supposed to hold out for that long
do i look like a NUN
Murat: Don't worry, I'll be there soon, and I'll have a free house...
Nina: wwwoooooooowwww, i'm putting that on the blog.
Murat: No fucking way! That's private!
Jonanagelo and Murat are anything but private. Their friendship has slowly evolved into a sordid, gay, heterosexual love affair. Jon's catchphrase is 'Stay FABULOUS!!!' and Murat...well, I've never seen a man 'accidentally' being photographed in so many homosexual situations.
My dream is that one day, push will come to shove and the two will realise that they're actually gay and become an item.
Look how cute they are!

Technology 1 - WASTEradio 0
Only for today though, we're going to employ a WASTEradio techno-geek and keep him locked in a cage until he works out how to get this whole broadcasting live thing a kick up the arse.
To show how sorry we are we have two offerings:
1) A 'Get to know Klaus' Q&A session which you can listen to on the right and download on iTunes.
2) Hot Chip - Defeated by technology.
