DJ Xotec: Marcella’s White Party VIII (redux) part 1

06.03.2008 @ 2:41 PM in Culture

I had to barback the White Party at Marcellas, and I was so busy with drunken VIP's, I barely had time to listen to the music spun by our three favorite resident DJ's: Charles Masters, Dj Lil Joe, and DJ Xotec. Alright, so Xotec is really just once a month, but he USED to be resident. Anyways, after realizing we weren't going to be able to record the whole night, Xotec promised us a White Party mix, and here it is.. well the first half at least.

Bonobos: Pants for Real Guys

06.03.2008 @ 11:30 AM in Culture

My workday is half sitting on my ass in an office, and half roaming about the community with a recreation group. I need pants that fit well, look nice, and can flex without ripping or rubbing my leg hairs right off. Up until now, I've been stuck wearing chinos's, taking a hit on fitting, because I need the casual cut to get around. Till now, I've been looking for a pant that wins on all three, something I can wear that was made for me, my style, and doesn't cost me tailor prices. Till Now. I ran across Bonobos first on Uncrate, a site devoted to gear and goods for guys. They called them the holy grail of pants, and I liked the look of them so I meandered over to to take a peak. First glance at the site, it looked like Bonobos were made for preppy well-off guys that wouldn't dare walk into a department store for anything more than a wedding gift for a cousin he despised, let alone a pair of slacks. But damn, were the pants enticing, so I took a deeper look. Bonobos are pants that feel like your favorite pair of jeans.  I'm sitting at my desk now, in a fresh pair of Shoguns, and my ass feels SOOO good. There's no bunching, I feel supported and very comfortable. The material is sturdy, yet light corduroy.
Bonobos exists to solve to two problems we had ourselves. (1) Men's pants do not fit well; they are either baggy, frumpy, and unflattering. Or way too tight. We make pants that fit and look better, on most gents and especially on guys with athletic builds. The second problem (2) is retail. How could we enjoy paying 120% markup to try on clothes in an uncomfortable public environment where sales associates—who are total strangers—either scrutinize our figures, or pay no attention to us at all? Meanwhile, pricing games are no fun. We're tired of waiting for sales... but paying full price makes no sense when inevitably everything will go on sale. We got tired of the traditional retail shopping experience. So we are building a different kind of clothing company, one that offers a fantastic customer experience, innovative low-cost distribution, and a stylish product that fits well.

Bonobos come in various style, materials, and colors; each style has a limited one-time run.  Each pant is also gracefully bootcut, with a playful, colorful lining. And, on the Shoguns at least, a hybrid snap/slide fly button which I thought was the coolest thing ever. To ensure that each pair fits, they all ship one length. If you have a puerto rican living with you and a mini sweat shop (like I do), you can get them sized the same day. Prices aren't bad either (most are between $110 and $130), but what I thought was the most amazing thing was the Band of Brothers discount they gave me for working the field of non-profit/human service. For that, I am incredibly grateful. Pants this sweet, you won't be able to find in stores. Bonobos only sell online, with a understanding open return policy, much like Craftsman, or Tupperware. If I could replace my wardrobe with one line, (and I probably will over time), it will be Bonobos, 'nuff said.

Snap! Bowling Blues

In light of LoLo coming all the way from Vegas to visit, im making up for all the Snaps! he has sent me this week that I haven't been able to upload thanks to wonky Windows Mobile.

Today is a very mellow bowling day. A few of my guys are in some sort of funk, and are quieter than usual, which is a hidden blessing.

Monday Tunesday: Ratatat – Mirando

06.02.2008 @ 2:39 PM in Culture

Eli turned me on to Ratatat during one of his self important rants where i was inclined to pay attention; I'm glad I did. The NYC Electronic duo has been turning up beats since around 2004, and they've been on tour with Bjork, Daft Punk, Interpol, and CSS among others. Their sound is upbeat and purely instrumental, a type suited for walking down a sunny street, or as soundtrack for a mellow indie house party, involving Pabst Blue Ribbon. Their Latest release, "LP3," is slated for July, with the single "shiller" released on 7" vinyl. Here's the latest release, the unofficial video for "Mirando", an video mashup of Predator, created by band member Evan Mast.

Firefox 3 Download Day: Help Set a World Record

05.30.2008 @ 2:30 PM in Technology

Download Day

Back when FF1 was released, I was a real active member of Spread Firefox. I'd shoot my badges all over the web and preach the ways of alternative browsing, life free of pop ups, and a general Exodus from all things IE. I was really into it, even made a few flash sigs for forum use, like this one..

[Totally Unofficial ATHF FTW] So, I've been kinda lax on the FF preaching, despite a few sermons on addons and tricks. Maybe I've realized that Firefox isn't a perfect browser, and that all those wonderfull addons can drag the poor fox to the ground, and that effing flash issue.... Or maybe I'm just lazy in general. Well, praise be to the gods, because Firefox 3 is here to save us, with load of new features, upgrades to the rendering engine, (Gecko 1.9) and bit more polish all over. You can download the RC1 and see it for yourself; and more plugins are syncing up to make the upgrade easier and more attractive. The SpreadFirefox team is also planning on setting a Guinness world record for the most downloads of a software title in a 24hour period with the launch of Firefox3. Since this is the first attempt on record, there isn't really a goal, but we want to make it as high as possible. One, thing though, they don't actually have a date for this event, so hit the badge above and pledge your download; you will be emailed when the time is nigh.
