Imaginary Stars in Dusty Urban Warehouses

Leftside Wobble's Acid Soul mixes are my cup of tea. Fully expect to hear this original track from Mr Wobble in his next mix.

"A warm deep groove to lose yourself within whilst dancing under imaginary stars in dusty urban warehouses."

The Bus Uphill

This short clip from All.I.Can by Dave Mossop & Eric Crosland is beautifully shot, sublimely synchronised footage of some completely out of bounds skiing.

The film can be purchased or rented in HD or SD versions from iTunes, and it would appear to be internationally licensed if I can obtain it here in New Zealand.

NZ$8.99 to purchase the HD version, complete bargain.

Police on my back

Those with access to the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary should start bugging their librarians to subscribe to the forthcoming online edition of the thesaurus.
