Guess Who's BACK!?!?

Posted by ToxicDoom | Saturday, December 25, 2010 | ,

It's OFFICIAL!!!! I'm now back up and running 100%!!!! Let me make ya guys aware of some certain changes in my life that...doesn't really affect much. Unless you're a band, and you're sending me (Or in the process of sending me) promo packages!

I guess the BIGGEST change for me is that.....i'm out on my own now! Yes, it feels kind of weird to be on my own - not answering to anybody or anything....other than my Cats LOL. It does feel freaking good though, as some of you know the drama that i went through for almost 2 years. There's only so much one person can take before they cut the cord. And, finding this house was kind of like a Godsend...even though i'm Agnostic :)

Secondly - the podcast will be in full swing again in 2011! I do hope to make it a little more professional, so my arrival date is yet to be confirmed. Most likely, will be the first week of February! Just because i need a new freakin' headset, and i'm not cheaping out...even though i don't really have the money....i found a set, and hope to set aside some money for it when i get paid in January.

Lastly - I'm as broke as a MoFo LMAO - so, to say the podcast is on a "tight budget" is putting it lightly lol. Though, for the past 5 years - i have worked at making this free. Everything from the hosting of the blog, right down to the hosting of the audio files and Podcast feed....is done for free. I do have plans on expanding the podcast in the near future, but, as it stands right now...on a budget of $994 a month....does not go far when I now have to worry about rent (Which i pay $52 extra what they give me), Utilities, and of course, the internet/phone/TV through Telus. Not to mention a food budget.

I've never really had to worry much about things, other than paying Telus and my food. Now...i have to be on a freakin' budget! it kinda blows! lol.

In January, i WILL BE looking into getting my damn grade 12. Because, ya can't get anywhere these days without it. And, then from there...i do hope to pick up a job...so i can get off the damn system, and back into a work atmosphere. I've already overcome 1 hurdle....just...2 or 3 more to go to really jack up my spirits!

I do wanna take this time to thank ALL OF MY LISTENERS AND SUBSCRIBERS not to mention the BANDS AND ARTISTS and LABELS that are still with me, supporting me through everything that i've done up to this point! I do hope that you'll bare with me through the new year - and, hope that the podcast remains #1 for Canadian and independent music throughout the duration of it's life (Which seriously, i'm NOT gonna be ending anytime soon :)

I will be updating the contact information on the "Submit a band" page - because, certain things have changed (Like, the email address used to contact me.) Not to mention my address that you can send stuff to....which, shouldn't be on that page anyways, and that's how it'll stay. I'll let the artists and labels know personally through email on how to send promo stuff to me directly!

So, thanks again guys! And, trust me...2011 is gonna be a BIG HUGE YEAR for Toxic! :D

Where I am

Posted by ToxicDoom | Wednesday, October 06, 2010 |

Most of you are probably wondering where the hell i've been at these past few weeks. Most notably, why there wasn't a podcast episode on the weekend, like i had promised there would be. Let me sum some shit up to maybe help ya gain a little perspective.

I'm in this...dark depression hole again. My schedule's been fucked up, and i'm still going on about school. I'm very open about what i'm dealing with - for me, writing about it actually helps me when i can't talk about it. I don't have many friends that i...rely on. Or, that i open up to. It's hard when people either just leave ya cause they're only out for themselves - or, they leave because they have their own shit to deal with. Both of which i've experienced. The 3rd is the worst though: people who think they have to treat ya differently or walk on eggshells because of what ya may or may not do.

I may go off in different directions with this post. It's just my thought process - and, i apologize in advance for that. My thought process is fucked up. I can go on about one thing, and then it's almost like that shit spawns something else. And, then i blab about that.

Right now, i'm confused as fuck. Add to that, nothing seems to be going in the direction i expected/wanted it to lately. I know what i want to do - but, i can't seem to find the energy anymore to do shit. It's almost like...i don't care anymore. But, in the same sense, i do.

I wanted to be the fuck out of this house before the end of the year. But, it's obvious that ain't gonna happen. I'm still waiting for fucking housing, and the last time i talked to both of them, i wasn't an "emergency case" - AKA: Still have a roof over my head. But, right now - that's still....up in the goddamn air. It sucks when you're almost 27, and still living with the parents. Sure, there are people that do it - but, i don't want to be. This house is nothing but fucking drama, and it does nothing but engulf me in it. Leading me to the depression, and not feeling like doing shit.

It sucks when you're bi-polar. I dunno if i'm getting worse, or if i'm getting better. Hell, i could be just the same - that things haven't changed since i got diagnosed at 19 with all this shit. Like everyone, i have good days, and i have bad days. Sometimes the good outweighs the bad - but, the other 60% of the time, it's the latter - the bad days outweigh the good. And, when i have my shitty days....unlike anyone else...i get really dark - really down - really depressed.

Thought today would be different. Thought today that since i actually went to sleep at a semi-decent time for me, that i would wake up in a good mood. Well, that's how it started.

DRAMA BEGINS HERE!!!!

Was having my wake up coffee, and smoke - when Kelly (My step-mom) had called me into the office - telling me that dad walked in the door at noon today, and that his job had called about an hour after that, and that it went to voicemail. She wanted to hear the message.

So, i played the message for her - come to find out that dad not only didn't show up today - but, that he didn't show up yesterday. oO

That's fucked up - because, he was gone the entire 11 and a half hours that he was "at work" - walked in the door sometime after 6pm lastnight.

That's not what put me in the bad mood. It made me contemplate shit, yes. Cause, those "What if's" entered my head. The one's that question if i'm gonna have a fucking roof for much longer, and if not, where the FUCK do i go from here? Housing said last month that it could take up to 2 years for me to find a house. I don't have that kinda fucking time! I don't wanna be out on the street.

This is why i've been putting schooling on hold. Cause, since i can't do it from a school setting - the doctor's won't let me, and the intake workers at the college - as soon as they ask me what's wrong with me, and why i'm not working - i told them. And, they won't let me in without a doctor's not. As they say "We don't want to accept you, and then 2 months in or something find out that you can't handle the workload."

So, since i can't do it from school - for the past year, i've been looking into ways from doing it from home. I've found a couple of Canadian home school courses that look really good, but ICS has been the top one. It's a little under $1000 to finish my grade 12, and get the full fledged diploma, and not just the GED.

Trust me, i would love nothing better than to get off government help. I've never wanted to be that guy who's on it for his entire fuck life. Probably why i'm kinda glad that AISH didn't go through both times i've applied. I don't wanna be the guy who's 30 or 40 and still living with the parents. And, i most certainly do NOT want to be like my brother.

Sure, he has a girlfriend, and yes, he works. But, what the fuck does he have to show for it? NOTHING! He gets in debt with people - either owing money to that he borrows - or, his habit. Not to mention the dog he has to take care of, and trying to manage to take care of him and the GF.

Right now, they're bouncing around from house to house. Basically, working on the houses that he has been doing - and, once he's done with 1, they move on to the next. And, the cycle continues.

I've always had dreams of doing something with my life. Big or small. I don't wanna be that failure. And, people think i'm trying to make fucking excuses on why i'm not doing something. It's not that i'm trying to hold myself back - it's everything that engulf's itself around me that holds me back.

That's why i wanted to be the fuck outta here. And, trust me, i've not only looked into housing, but also living with a few people. But, neither have panned out. Cause, being stuck in a house with a Dad who's a drunk - who doesn't go to work - even knowing that we could lose this house if they miss 1 fucking payment....isn't enough.

Listen, i make $770 a month. And, when Grandma was around - i would've been able to file a rent report. Even after she had died, i could've. But, what do i get told from dad and Kelly? "No. Fuck that! If we have to file a rent report, that's just income we have to report on the taxes, and more money we have to pay out." I could've easily been paying $300 a month - the max they'll give me for room and board. But, dad doesn't wanna file that rent report because of the fact that he already owes over $5,000 in back taxes and shit.

So, instead of that - they basically said "Well, get phone, internet and TV - since we can't get it under our name - and, that'll be your rent." I had and still have no problem with that - because, i use all of them. Well, i use my cell phone more now - the only reason i have the home phone right now is because the parents use it - and, it's better than them using my cell phone to make calls, and giving everyone my damn cell #. I made that fucking mistake awhile ago.

But, yea. I'm not trying to make excuses on why i'm not doing shit. But, i know what i can and can't handle. And, yes...i'm in that place of knowing that i CAN Handle school. But, who's to fucking say that when i start that in January....that we don't lose this damn house in the process? What the fuck am i supposed to do then? Cause, the schooling would be done online....and, if i don't have access to a computer, i can basically kiss that the fuck goodbye. $1000 burnt for no fucking reason.

The only thing that i can't handle is the drama that engulfs me in this house - either by them involving me....or, that i fucking hear. Music can only cover up so much - ya still hear the damn yelling.

Not to mention that today - dad woke up before i went down there and he listened to the message that his work had left. His bi-polar shit is cutting in big time. He was basically yelling at..nothing. Thinking that someone was down there, and started throwing shit around calling...whatever he was yelling at....a cocksucker, a prick - and, if he wanted to have a serious fucking talk, blah blah blah.

Which led to the depression tonight. Why? Cause, the realization kicked in again. The realization that always kicks in when he does this shit. That the booze is finishing his life off. That he's on his last leg. And, the imaginary things he "thinks" are real...is basically the booze fucking with his brain. And, when it does that....it's never good.

I used to drink. I have NEVER imagined shit that wasn't there. I didn't see or hear voices. I didn't talk to anything that wasn't there. I also never fought with something i thought was there. I never had hallucinations - or, whatever the fuck else ya wanna call it.

And, him and i are not that different. We deal with the same shit. Though, i'm one step below him in bi-polar crap. I'm "Mild/moderate" - he was diagnosed as fucking severe, and a little bit of schizophrenia - with depression to boot.

Me on the other hand? Depression, Severe Anxiety, Social Anxiety Disorder, Mild/Moderate Bi-polar disorder and Sleep Apnea.

Maybe he's not near death. Maybe it's just the schizophrenia in him. But, i have a tendency to think the worst.

Which leads me back to my whole feeling of complete and utter shit. I'm back to where i started not only last year when i self-admitted. But, back to where i was when i first got diagnosed 8 years ago. I don't wanna self-admit again...but, realizing that it might come to that again...fucking blows.

I don't know when i'll be in the mood to do the podcast again. I don't like putting it on hold. But, certain things right now trump other things. And, i don't wanna give an answer - only to have to back out again because of the depression and not wanting to do fuck all but sleep.

Update!

Posted by ToxicDoom | Thursday, September 02, 2010 | , ,



So, i tried to create a 24/7 radio stream. But, due to confusions - and, me not working with that crap for well over 6 years now....i gave up! lol.

Not really a lot to talk about right now. I'm still recovering from the dentist. I'm on my last day of Amoxil - thank God! And, also recovering from a hangover. Trust me, it was worse yesterday, and the coffee wasn't helping!

I can't remember if i let ya guys know when the podcast will be back. Why can't I remember that? lol. Well, if i didn't - or, i did, i have decided that October 1 will be the Official comeback. I feel that's a better date, as i will have my bigger hard-drive, as i couldn't afford it this month. And, i'll also have everything back and working!

Not just that, but some new releases are in the works - and, if i come back near the end of September, we'll miss one week of new releases!

So, October 1 will be the comeback - and, i'll have a ton of new music - from Combichrist, The Birthday Massacre....and, a ton more punk that i was able to get back last week! :D

With all that said....i dunno what else to say. iTunes 10 launched yesterday with their social music thing called Ping! It's supposed to be a "MySpace Killer" - but, i played with it lastnight....and, not nearly enough of my friends are using it. And, the features that Apple want to associate with it - won't be put in until a later date. So, that being said....there are just a few artists right now (Like Lady GaGa, U2 and Linkin Park) that I've noticed using it.

Until all artists are using it, and it's fully customizable - i don't sense many people will be jumping on the Ping bandwagon.

Let's hope it's soon though! And, i would really love it if Podcasters were able to use the service too - and, if they do give podcasters something to toy with in there, i wonder what they'd include...and, if it would be worth it. Seriously....that could also be a twitter killer! :D lol

So much to talk about, so little time! I've gotta get to bed early, cause i'm literally littered in appointments tomorrow. Well....1 doesn't classify as "littered", i suppose lol. I also have to do a walk-in with either my family doctor - or, the clinic tomorrow. It's just, this past 2 weeks, i've been hit - and, i've been hit hard.

Ya know that old saying "Things happen in 3's"? Well....Get this!

First - about 2 weeks ago....there was some kinda weird ass flu bug going around this city. Personally, i think somebody went on a cruise, forgot to wipe...and, then got off the boat and welcomed everyone. And, i wasn't the only one in this house to get it. That weekend, dad came home from his "weekend trip" (lol....that's subtle enough, isn't it?) - and, he came home to Kelly and I sick...and, he picked something up too!

I guess the good thing here would be....that we were all sick at the same bloody time.

I'm Just now done with it - all that's left is a little bit of sinus crap...and, some ooey-gooey phlegm that's like....thicker than owl snot hahaha.

That's phase 1. The 2nd thing to happen to me.....Tooth rot!!! Always a joy to have! And, ya know....i used to swear by Sensodyne....not anymore! In fact, i think it actually makes cavities. It doesn't help that for almost 2 years, i drank every day. Yea, i don't make it publicly known all the time that in 2006 through to early 2008, i went down a deep, dark road. I won't go into all the boring details. Cause, that's not what this podcast is about!

But - yea, i have a dentist appointment tomorrow....and, instead of getting the needle in the gum....i'm gonna ask for anesthesia. Hopefully, with the meds i'm on - they can do it. Cause, i don't need to be swollen for 2 hours, trying to talk to another doctor.

That's part 2. Get ready for the 3rd thing....the Tri-Fecta if you will :D

Woke up yesterday - and, i had a zit...or another freakin' cyst under my right arm - underneath the armpit. Not only that - but, i also woke up with one on my neck. Not as big...but, still hurts, and is giving me a little bit of a headache. And...to sleep....don't even ask! This is getting ridiculous!

I either have the worst fucking luck.....or, God's getting ready to strike me down lol.

Let's get into the GOOD NEWS! cause, ironically, there is some. I just got back from another hard-drive failure. I lost track at how many times this is now. Mind ya, this was my doing this time...because i thought i could do the podcast in the comfort of Ubuntu. And, as much as i wanted to....the LTS just isn't quite all there yet. Problem after problem with repositories, certain software not working...the whole 9 yards.

So, when i came back into the Windows 7 world - i had a flash of genius. And, i pose this as a question to all of you.

How would you guys like to see a live, 24/7 Radio stream? As well as the podcast - but, included LIVE in the radio show, and archived into the feed?

I found a free stream host - and, they look really promising. If i get positive feedback, i will run with the idea, and test it out in the coming weeks with SAM3 and the ShoutCast streamer :D

On other news!

New music is coming in 3 weeks! From The Birthday Massacre with Pins and Needles. Also, The LoveCrave with Soul Saliva. The LoveCrave is awesome if ya love TBM or Lacuna Coil. They're an Italian female-fronted Gothic/Metal band - and, they have produced 2 albums with this new one. And, on the new CD, they cover Michael Jackson's "Thriller" ....omg! I have never heard it sound better than from the King of Pop himself - but, it's heavier and amazing!

Also, Elise Estrada has a new single out right now called "You're So Hollywood" which unfortunately, i don't have at this time. I haven't even heard the song...it makes me cry! :(

Not to leave the other Estrada out - Emmalyn released a song called "Get Down" Which i was able to get my hands on.

For those of you who don't know, Emmalyn is the younger sister of Elise. And, they both are really talented...and, they're gonna match each other lyrically, vocally, and talent wise! They're both extremely talented (Not to mention just mind numbingly Gorgeous!) And, if i have to predict....Emmalyn will be releasing her CD along with Elise's Sophomore release!

When i know more, you'll know more!

Also, before i go - Toxic TuneZ Will be back the 3rd week of September! It's been a hectic summer here for me - minus the concert scene. Just haven't had the time, or the money....and, if i do have the money, i'm either sick - or recovering from computer failure's!

I Soooo need to get my Mac Pro!!!

About Noblesse Oblige

Ex-London, now Berlin based duo Noblesse Oblige was formed in early 2004 by German songwriter/producer Sebastian Lee Philipp and French performer-cum-songwriter/chanteuse Valerie Renay after meeting at a masked ball in Hoxton during which Valerie was performing a live art show.

 
Their debut album Privilege Entails Responsibility (the English translation of the band name) was released in the U.K. in 2006. Its eclectic mix of disco punk, sixties French chanson and raw acoustic folklore combined with lyrical wit and dark humor proved an appealing combination among the London crowds. Its first single releases Bitch and Daddy (Don't touch me there) quickly became indie club regulars throughout Europe.

 
Having re-located to Berlin in autumn 2006, Noblesse Oblige started working on its follow-up album In Exile, released in autumn 2008 on RepoRecords. Written and recorded in the band's own Neukölln music studio, the album is a journey through its writers' diverse musical tastes and styles, taking influences from gothic horror movies, African tribal tunes and contemporary pop music. The songs are accompanied by tri-lingual lyrics that range from child-like nursery rhymes, over the bands ever present obsession with sex and death, to more sensual and dreamlike tales of unfound love and loneliness. Having toured and performed with artists including Dresden Dolls, Vive La Fete and Patti Smith among others, Noblesse Oblige gained a notorious reputation for their wild and spectacular live shows. Taking turns in playing guitar, samplers, piano, keyboards and drums or melodica, Sebastian and Valerie blend edgy electronics with a raw live sound that captures the sleazy, ambiguous tension within the duos sensual performance.

 
From hipster nightclubs in Paris to S&M dungeons in Rome, back to warehouse raves and art galleries of East London, Noblesse Oblige have toured most of Europe and - since their 2007 tour of Brazil - beyond back and forth over the past 3 years, resulting in a steadily growing loyal fan base. Closely linked to the art world through their regular appearances at international galleries and art institutes as well as Valerie's own background in theatre and live art performance, Noblesse Oblige count Turner prize winner Wolfgang Tillmans, Porn legend Rocco Siffredi and contemporary composer Michael Nyman among their fans, whilst the band's more danceable music has been supported by key club DJs such as Mark Moore (S'Express), Erol Alkan and Joost van Bellen.

 
Remaining members of Leigh Bowery's cult 80s band Minty asked Noblesse Oblige to re-record its underground hit Useless Man using Bowery's original vocal takes, which was included on the limited edition of Privilege Entails Responsibility's second single release Quel Genre de Garcon / Lil' Dirty. Noblesse Oblige songs have been remixed by artists including Motor (Novamute), Mona Mur, En Esch (ex-KMFDM) and Musiccargo (Amontillado Music), and their music has been used in several film productions and music compilations as well as international catwalk shows. Their innovative artwork and photography is regularly seen in galleries and printed media, such as the cover of Lydia Lunch's collection of short stories.

 
For hip underground director Edwin Brienen's L'amour toujours, Sebastian and Valerie were asked to star alongside Austrian cult actor Erwin Leder (Das Boot). N.O. also regularly appears as DJs in the club scenes of Berlin, London and Paris.
Between 2005 and 2007 their own club night Caligula was a popular event in London and received positive press attention. It was regularly voted Critic's choice in London's Time Out magazine, following a range of successful events that introduced an impressive range of Live acts including Motor (Novamute), Pam Hogg, Cursor Miner (Lo Recordings), Comanechi and Tetine (Souljazz) to name a few.


Besides her work as half of Noblesse Oblige, Valerie is a successful theatre and performance artist who trained with Philippe Gaullier in London and has directed several theatre shows as well as art festival appearances around the world. Recently she has re-emerged in the Berlin art and performance scene as her alter ego Femme Façade.

 
Sebastian is a music producer with his own Berlin recording studio in which he has most recently worked with The Hidden Cameras and Birol Ünel among others.
For 2010, Metropolis Records proudly welcomes Noblesse Oblige with the release its third album Malady, an occult concept album that cites the visual mysticism of Kenneth Anger, Aleister Crowley's storytelling, and the morbid melancholy of Christina Rossetti's poetry. The album was initiated by the bands' involvement in Robert Pacitti's 2009 London Spill Festival Tarot Deck project, for which Noblesse Oblige (in collaboration with photographer Manuel Vason) were asked to visualize their own interpretation of The Lovers Major Arcana card. Malady blends world music sounds, pop kitsch and new wave theatricality to create a unique musical landscape

orange-sector-cdcover[4]

Formed in 1992, Orange Sector greatly impacted the EBM and industrial scenes with their hard hitting dance songs. Signing with Infacted Recordings (Europe) and Metropolis Records (North America), the band is poised to release their 8th album, Krieg & Frieden. Featuring 10 tracks and two remixes, the album represents a return to their roots with its aggressive synths, kinetic hooks, and unrelenting bass-lines. True to form, Orange Sector has once again raised the bar for others to reach.

About Orange Sector:

In 1992 Martin Bodewell and Lars Felker met in a Club called "Index" and discovered that they had the same interests in music. Martin and Lars each had their own musical endeavors at the time, but after only one meeting, Orange Sector was born. The legendary band DAF was a big influence on the dominant sound of Orange Sector. The name was a result of the band simply playing with various words. The Orange Sector was the name of the environment on stage. This is the place where everyone would meet, forget their problems, and have fun. The band rented a studio to produce their demo-tape "The War Comes Home." In the early years this name and lyrics represented the problems with society. The album art showed an American farmer who buried Agent Orange barrels in the ground. Lars and Martin only sent the demo to one record label, the legendary 90's EBM juggernaut Zoth Ommog. Label mastermind Talla 2XLC gave it to the producer Andre Schmechta (of "X Marks The Pedwalk") and said "I like, make it!" The dream came true. It did not take long for "Orange Sector" to get signed to their favorite label.

 
1993 saw huge milestones for the band: the first record "Faith" was recorded at the T.G.I.F. Studios, The song "Kalt wie Stahl" was a huge hit on the club dance floors. The song landed in the Frankfurt Techno Club charts at position #4. Orange Sector embarked on its first major tour with the Swedish band S.P.O.C.K.. The band became known for putting on a great live show. Orange Sector's "body show" was full of energy, gaining many fans, and lead to the founding of the Orange Sector Fan-Base "Bodysmashing".

 
During the Faith-Tour the band worked on new material for their next release. In 1994 the band released the album Flashback, which is considered their greatest album to date, and still hailed as a classic in the EBM genre. With the songs "Götter" and "Für immer", Orange Sector was ruling the dance floors. Not long after, the band released an EP of cover songs and original material, putting its own distinctive spin on classic songs like "Kids in America" (Kim Wilde), "Polizisten" (Extrabreit), and "I Was Made For Loving You" (Kiss).


Both personal and professional reasons caused Lars to leave the band, though he and Martin still remained in contact. Martin decided to carry on with the project, and after a long break released the record Love it. The new songs were much softer and more melodic. The old fans did not accept the new sound. In 1998 Martin rejoined Zoth Ommog with two more releases, Scars of Love and Masquerade. After a while, Martin lost his motivation and decided to leave the music scene.

 
In 2004 EBM was reanimated. The classic EBM sound was taking back the club scene once again. Torben Schmidt, label owner of "Infacted-Recordings," and the mastermind behind "Lights of Euphoria" played the old Orange Sector songs during his work as a DJ. He decided to contact Lars with a plan to release a compilation through the history of Orange Sector. Lars convinced Martin to have the album released. Martin said yes, and the band in the original line-up was together again. The Compilation Here We Are [BackAgain] was released in March 2005. A reinvigorated Orange Sector followed the release with an all new album in 2006, their first in over 12 years. Bassprodukt took Lars and Martin back to their roots: Hard, driving old school EBM.

 
Now, for 2010, the electro legends join Metropolis Records to release their 8th album, Krieg & Frieden. Featuring 10 tracks and two remixes; the album represents a return to their roots with its aggressive synths, kinetic hooks, and unrelenting bass-lines. True to form, Orange Sector has once again raised the bar for others to reach. This is what true EBM is all about.

This was SUPPOSED to Air a few hours ago, but thanks to the hard drive failure awhile back and, me having to get everything back...mixed with hosting changing how they're doing things...made for an interesting night to say the least! However - nothing changed about the show! It's Can-EH-dian all the way!

And, if my Mutt ways don't shine through here....lol.

Seriously, the music is off the wall tonight! Things you normally don't hear on the podcast - mixed with some stuff that ya do - it was fun to play around with stuff i normally don't get a chance to play, and i'm thinking about hosting shows now that go with my mood. So, some things will be permanent fixtures!

Some news about the Lilith Fair Cancellation dates have been included (Psst: You can also check the Facebook fan page for the link to the article. Brings it to 12 as of July 1.

Lastly - this is a little bit longer than some of you are used to. Where i normally only do a 2 hour show at max...this ran about 45 minutes longer. Which, isn't a bad thing!

Be warned: Some of this music is REALLY off the wall! Amanda Marshall, Sarah McLachlan, Feist, Stars..among many others have been included. Even a little bit of a surprise near the end of the show!

Will i give it away? I think not!

 

You can tune in with the Listen Now button up top – or, hopefully the player below will work! lmao.

canadian-flagWell, here we are again – Canada Day!!! The day where booze and fireworks – not to mention BBQ’s and outdoor events are sure to be plenty! In Medicine Hat, however – we are lacking festivities. Not saying that the Canada day people and volunteers here suck….but, the Music festival we had – Sandfly Festival…..has been dampened. I think the “Highlight” for most people, will be The Stampeders.

So – I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. I will be taking a day off from the Business plan – to host a new episode of the podcast – and, will also be doing another one on Saturday as well.

Tomorrow’s episode will be released sometime after 9pm or so MDT – and, will feature music from Canadian Artists and bands! How cool is that?!?!

This will give me the chance to bring in some of the other independent bands and artists that I haven’t had much of a chance to play – and, even some new one’s that I’ve brought in – or, Artists who have released new stuff!

Here’s what I have in my head for what’s gonna be on tap!

  1. Scatterheart
  2. Sarah McLachlan (her new CD, “Laws Of Illusion just dropped last week!)
  3. Manafest
  4. K-os
  5. Classified
  6. Stars (They’ve got a new CD out, “The Five Ghosts”)
  7. Ten Second Epic
  8. Swollen Members
  9. Framing Hanley (New CD "A Promise To Burn” – OUT NOW!)
  10. The Birthday Massacre

…….And Many, MANY more!

So, if your plans are lacking – or, you’re out there partying – let me be the DJ of your party, and tune into the podcast tomorrow!

Trust….it’s gonna be the BEST!

Thanks to my friend, Janelle - i was able to find this video! Insane Clown Posse. They're interviewed on nightline - and, bring into question the "mental capacity" of the Juggalos.

Insane Clown Posse on Nightline March 9th 2010

These are the same people that bring into question the music industry as a whole. Comedians really word it best. Denis Leary for example:

"Heavy Metal bands on trial because kids commit suicide? What's that about? Judas Priest on trial because "my kid bought the record, and listened to the lyrics, ....." Well that's great! That sets a legal precedent. Does that mean I can sue Dan Folgerburg for making me into a pussy in the mid-70's. Is that possible, huh? Huh?! "Your honor, between him and James Taylor, I didn't get a blow job 'till I was 27 years old. I was in Colorado wearing hiking boots eating granola. I want some fucking money right now!"

-Denis Leary, "More Drugs" (from "No Cure For Cancer", 1990)

Hell, Chris Rock also said it - not quoted, cause i can't remember it off hand. But, it went something like....

"Rapper says Gun: Congressional Hearing"

Music CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be held responsible for the shit that these people do!!!

My question: Where the FUCK are the parents?

That's why this shit happens. It's not the fucking music! God almighty! These are the kids that are in Desperate need of medical attention. They're going through issues, and i personally believe that it's their way of reaching out. As twisted as it sounds.

Fuck - if ya wanna blame music, shouldn't we be pointing the fingers at the RIAA??? They're the ones that put the music out. Fuck - i figure that if the RIAA wants to sue people for downloading music....their asses should be sued for putting out bands like Marilyn Manson, Judas Priest...Eminem, 50 cent....etc...you get the drift.

Now, let me make myself clear: I DO NOT have ANY issues with any of these bands or artists! Music is a self-expression, a mean to express your thoughts - regardless of how "Fucked up" they are.

You wanna blame someone? Ok...here it is!
It's you fucking parents! If you took the fucking time to notice the "Signs" of depression - like my parents did when they got me help - we wouldn't have some of these school shootings, or murders. Don't put your fucking failure on the music industry as a whole. It's YOUR fault!

All you parents who are using your kids as "Trophies" - and, pushing them to be better and smarter than they are....and, you're only proud of them if they "Win" or, they do good....



I'll leave you with the words of George Carlin. Maybe these "Proud Parents" will take something from this shit!

"...Here's another pack of low-grade morons who oughta be locked into portable toilets, and set on fire. These people with bumper stickers that say 'we are the proud parents of an honor student at the franlin school' Ya know? Or the 'Midvale academy' - or, whatever other innocent sounding name has been assigned to the indoctrination center to be stripped of his individuality, and turned into an obedient soul , dead conformist member of the American Consumer Culture."

"Proud Parents?!? What kind of empty people need to validate themselves through the achievements of their children? How would you like to live with a couple of these 'misfits'?"

"How's that science fair project coming along, Justin?"
"Fuck you dad! You simple-minded Prick! Mind your own business and pass the damn cheerios!"


"Here's a bumper sticker i'd like to see! 'We are the proud parents of a child who's self-esteem is sufficient, that he doesn't need us promoting his minor scholastic achievements on the back of our car!' Orrr...'We are the proud parents of a child who has resisted his teachers attempts to break his spirit, and bend him to the will of his corporate masters.'

-George Carlin, "Parents and Honor Students" (From 'Complaints and Grievances" - 2001)

Nothing major guys! I swear! I just wanted to let you guys know a few things!

First off - the podcast will make a slight return this week! I'll be playing some NEW MUSIC! Most notably, from Kutt Calhoun, Bizarre, Stone Sour....And, i'll be unleashing the new Methods of Mayhem Song, "Fight Song"

Now, to keep you guys here in the loop as to why i've been gone so long! I normally take the summers off - though, this time, that's not the case. I am actually in the middle of putting together a business plan, and a business model to take the podcast to the next level - A dedicated 24/365 (or, 362) online radio station!

I am going through a company based out of Toronto - Leadership Grants of Canada. Although, nothing is set in stone yet - i'm feeling bery confident! Even if the grant doesn't go as planned, i will be taking this business plan to a local company - regardless - because, i do need a proof-reader. Someone to give me feedback, and make changes where needed to give it that extra spark.

So, that's where i'm at right now! And, the business plan is nothing to sneeze at. I've completed almost 3 sections (not to mention the sub-sections that come with them) - and, have already put together 40+ pages. I still have 8 or 9 sections left, and the deadline is next month - July 23. 6 Weeks from start to finish!

In between - my weekends will be dedicated on pushing out new shows - as i know i only have 2 thanks to the fucking old feed going down (Which is really weird, because if you go into iTunes - episodes 101 to 115 and beyond are still there, but...can't be downloaded. They'll play from the storefront though! lmao!)

My next task before Saturday's episode unleashes upon ya guys - will be going direct to the labels that i work with, and basically tell them what's going on - and, how much support i'm going to need for this idea to come together!

Anyways guys, i AM reading all your feedback i've been given - and felt that it was necessary to let ya guys know where i'm at in this world - even though it's not set in stone yet. I didn't wanna jinx shit, hence why i didn't get into it when i applied for this grant, and even still, i feel like i might not get anywhere with this, and the idea of launching a full blown radio station.

This is where i need your support - Now, more than EVER!!!

I'll keep you guys updated, and in the loop starting today - and, throughout the rest of this process! I'm hopeful for this, and hope you guys will be too!

Been Awhile!

Posted by ToxicDoom | Thursday, April 01, 2010 | , , , , , , ,

Well - i'm back from break for a little - just to kind of update ya guys on what's happening in my life right now :) One entry that would normally go to the personal blog - but, one that i think ya guys should know about.

During my time off, there has been a little bit going on in this house. Actually, a lot. First, we're in the process of losing the house. Parents went and got a second mortgage a few years ago, screwed up - dad lost his job. But, the real estate guy came 2 weeks ago, and appraised the house. A little bit below what was originally given....but, gave us basically a 2 month time frame. Wants us out by mid-May, which means i have to find a place to stay.

I've been running around a little bit, trying to find a place - and, i think i may have found a place. With one of the people i met during the 2nd stay at the hospital. Problem is, i can't take my cats - therefore, i have to leave them with Dad and Kelly - which isn't really an issue, cause the cats know i'm not abandoning them. They're well taken care of with them, and i don't have to worry about them as a whole.

Yea, as you can plainly see, i'm an animal person. And, the things that half these people who own pets don't do, i hate with a passion. When ya have a bloody animal, you're supposed to treat it how you would like to be treated. Food, shelter - LOVE.

....But, that's off topic :)

So, now that's taken care of. It sucks when you're on social assistance though, and they'll only give ya $323 a month for rent. lol. Ya barely make enough to survive. Stupid Canadian politics. If it wasn't for the deal i hammed out, i don't have to really give up anything. I only pay for BellTV and Telus internet and phone. She's got a dish - so, 1 terminal can go back. That'll lower my bill a little bit. Plus, she wants away from Shaw - so, me brining up the Internet and a phone...yep yep.

I'm hoping to get back to school soon too. I can't do it from a school based setting - last time i was assessed. So...i can do it from home. This house is just not doing it for me anymore. I need to be on my own. Lotta bad shit that i just wanna....be done with. Stupid demons lol. (No, not in the paranormal sense.)

Oh - and, then now...my computer crashed LMAO. Perfect fucking timing if i do say so myself. And, the guy has had it since...Saturday. Maybe Tech2Go in Medicine Hat wasn't my smartest move. Yea, ok - it all crashed. Hard drive failed - and, burnt out. Dust and Fur (That should've actually been cleaned by the last guy - no name's.) But, everything that failed burned out. And, everything was running on low power. So, MDG kinda sucks in my book's.

So, now i lost everything. Labels and Bands: This is why i ask for HARD COPIES! lol. Cause, now - i gotta put all my crap back in there - and, download what i can get back. Lost everything on that drive i had over 3 years. Now, let's just hope that Telus likes me....cause, they're gonna see bandwidth increase lol.

That's why i'm still gone. Plus, i've been sick these last 5 days, and am just getting over it. I'm using a bloody netbook that's hooked up to the monitor and keyboard....and, using wireless right now. Kinda sucks lol. So, i haven't really been around as much as i used to. I don't think i ever will be on like that for awhile. I'll be here when i can, but other than that.... lol.

Please understand that if i'm not here, and not doing the show right now....it's not cause i don't want to. I have to, because there's a lot of crap right now that's happening that i need to take a break from. To get my life on the track i want and need it to go....and, do it without getting overwhelmed.

And, i'm still trying to figure out who my friends are. That takes some time. Not only offline, but online as well. I've had some fake ass people just drain it out of me. First, there was "Nat". And, i really don't know shit cause she's blocked me. I didn't start to really judge....But, Chad had me too, and i stopped following him and talking to him. He's come off fake. He talks all this shit, and then does something to contradict himself, and be proved wrong...and, makes up shit. PLAYA! lol.

Fuck - half the friends i used to consider friends have seem to come up as well. Yea, there's some i hold true - but, some that i consider....Associates lol. But, some of them are just...don't want anything to seem to wanna do with me. Is it cause i'm broken? Maybe i'm just a wallflower - well, i know i am, but to a point. I dunno. Maybe it's just cause i have the depression and bi-polar shit. Maybe it's cause people can't seem to drop shit in their heads that i have taken the blame for, but are just made up....cause, i don't "Cougar it up" lol. Not to someone i've known for 20 some years.

Anyways, i'm rambling on and on. All this shit that's been following me a month and some have now come out. Take it as ya will. :)

Girlicious singer arrested on cocaine charge

Posted by ToxicDoom | Wednesday, March 10, 2010 | , , , , ,

Now, i'm not here to judge....becuase, really - That's not our place in the world in my opinion. That's left for whatever or whoever the higher being is. And, there's enough damn judgment in this world to last a bloody lifetime.

HOWEVER - i can say that i'm extremely disappointed in her. A chick that almost every girl looks up to (And that some pretend to be...lol) - gets arrested on a damn cocaine charge, and sits in jail today.

They found this shit in her purse! And, she was a passenger of the car, and got busted heading up to a concert in Canada with her driver.

Now, either way ya look at it - she's guilty as sin. Passenger or not. Anybody that traffic's this shit deserves punishment by law - to the full extent.

There - that's my 2 cents! Now - here's the full article that came in 4 hours ago! (And, yes guys - that's her REAL mugshot taken just hours ago after the bust)




GLENDALE — A singer from the pop group Girlicious was arrested Tuesday night after police allegedly found more than a dozen individual packages of cocaine in her Gucci purse, officials said.

Natalie Mejia, 21, of Diamond Bar is being held today in Glendale City Jail in lieu of a $30,000 bond, according to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Mejia and Peter Asencio, 28, of Burbank were taken into custody after a police noticed a 1998 Ford Mustang driving at a high rate of speed, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

The officer stopped the car at Victory Boulevard and Winchester Avenue, just before it went onto the Ventura (134) Freeway, he said.

Mejia, who was a passenger in the car, was apparently heading to an airport for a concert in Canada, Lorenz said.

Police searched the Mustang after discovering Asencio’s driver’s license was suspended, Lorenz said.

During the search, police allegedly found multiple individual baggies of cocaine in Mejia’s Gucci purse.

"She doesn’t know how it go into her purse," Lorenz said.

She and Asencio were immediately arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine for sale, Lorenz said. Asencio was also arrested in connection with driving on a suspended driver’s license, he said.

In 2008, Mejia was a contestant on the CW reality show, Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious.

Time off

Posted by ToxicDoom | Saturday, February 13, 2010 | ,

I'm sorry to have to do this again guys, i REALLY am but, my mental capacity to deal with shit has just....gone down. It's a long story to get into right now, and really not for the podcast blog. Those of you that can get to my personal blog, because ya know the address - or, something else that makes ya find it (lol) - it's all on there.

I now need to take the time off during the Winter games to "Reflect" on shit. To put shit into perspective. Hopefully for the better...maybe not. I'm not too optimistic right now about that whole front.

Duing this time - i will rarely be seen. And, if i am, it'll be on msn. And, that'll be once in a blue moon.

No, i am NOT quitting the podcast. That's not what needs to be put into perspective. So, don't worry about that. Regular episodes will begin again in March.

Hopefully, i'll have a clearer head to do shit - and, get shit done.

Again, i do apologize for the downtime once again - but, every now and then, this is what a person has to do. And, mental capacity trumps other shit in a heartbeat. Not like i need to end up back in the hospital because of stress again.

Roadrunner-Records-Logo

Don't adjust your web browser -- we know it's February 2010, but as we move through the first couple months of this new decade, we can't help but reflect on some great music from the not-so-distant past.

Since 1986, Roadrunner Records’ US contingent has proudly carved itself a niche in hard and heavy music. In later years we’ve branched out to radio rock and even the alt/indie field, but when it came time to rate the Top 10 albums of the first decade of this millennium, our staff and artists alike kept with Roadrunner’s traditions, and focused mainly on metal – with a few surprises in the mix.

Though you’ll find a lot of Roadrunner releases in our consensus list below, know that this Top 10 was compiled of over 40 entries from Roadrunner employees around the globe and even includes the opinions of artists like Max Cavalera, Corey Taylor, Matt Heafy, Joel Stroetzel and much more.

So here’s the Top 10 that most of us agreed on, and judging by our tie for the number four position and three-way tie for number 9, it wasn’t all in perfect harmony.

 

1. Killswitch EngageThe End of Heartache

2. Killswitch EngageAlive or Just Breathing

3. System of a Down - Toxicity

4. Deftones – White Pony

4. At the Drive-In – Relationship of Command

5. OpethBlackwater Park

6. Tool – Lateralus

7. Mastodon – Crack the Skye

8. GlassjawEverything You Ever Wanted to Know About Silence

9. SlipknotVol. 3 the Subliminal Verses

9. Radiohead – In Rainbows

9. Iron Maiden – Brave New World

10. Muse - Absolution

Roadrunner Records Signs Madam Adam

Posted by ToxicDoom | Wednesday, February 03, 2010 | , , ,

Roadrunner Records is pleased to announce the signing of Charleston, South Carolina rock band MADAM ADAM. The band is currently finishing up the recording of their as-yet untitled Roadrunner debut in Nashville, Tennessee, where they are working with producer/mixer Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, Saliva, Skillet, Sick Puppies.) Roadrunner expects to release the album in summer of 2010, and the band will be announcing some Southeast tour dates shortly.

The band - vocalist/guitarist Scott Gould, bassist Kenny Varner, guitarist Drew Reindollar and drummer Matthew Reindollar - has posted webisodes from the studio sessions on their MySpace page.

Roadrunner Senior VP of A&R Ron Burman commented about the signing, saying, "I'm really excited to be working with Madam Adam. They have really catchy rock songs, the kind that I grew up listening to on rock radio. Madam Adam write songs that stick in your head after one listen, which is rare. The singer, Scott, has a great voice and they are an exceptionally good live band."

"We're grateful for the opportunity to work with Ron Burman and the staff at Roadrunner -- to have such an accomplished team behind us is that dream every kid with a guitar hopes becomes a reality," Gould said. "Last week, we laid the final tracks to the debut, thanks in part to producer Skidd 'The Wizard' Mills and at the moment we're describing it as Casablanca starring Conan the Barbarian."

RiseRecordsDave Shapiro (Booking Agent at The Agency Group, Los Angeles) and Portland, Oregon’s Rise Records are pleased to announce their recent partnership to create a new imprint in the Rise Records family - Velocity Records.

Dave Shapiro will own and run the new label with the help of the Rise team, and will be working directly with Rise on all upcoming and future projects. This exciting new partnership will further develop the successful working relationship that Shapiro and Rise already have together, which can most notably be seen in the current popularity of metalcore buzz band The Devil Wears Prada, who they have worked with together since late 2006.

This is only the beginning of what can be expected to result from this pairing. Velocity Records will be making its first official announcement very soon so please keep both Velocity and Rise on your radar, as there will be much more to come.
