Recent Unwashed Tomato releases!


As some of you know, my friend Andy and I recently released the debut album of our psytrance project, Unwashed Tomato. It is available for purchase as a digital download through our own web distribution hub, Tomato Music Online. You can find more information and samples of the album, as well as info on our upcoming shows and releases at our website
unwashedtomato.com
We can only accept payments through paypal, but if you dont have an account, it is simple and free to set one up! We did all of the work on the album, (production, mastering, artwork and promotion) and the websites (design, coding, etc) ourselves, so if any one wants advice on how to create a website or to make an online store, we would be more then willing to help.


I also had a short EP of one of my solo projects (Kabayun) released on the Canadian label D-A-R-K Records. The artwork was a collaboration between my friend Jeramie and I where we photographed an acrylic painting he had done and manipulated the colors in photoshop.

etymology

Recently you may have hear this quip: "blah blah blah, economic crisis, blah blah blah...but we should all have some faith, for in Chinese the word "Crisis" is composed of two characters, the first means "Danger" but the second means "Opportunity", blah blah blah, therefore there is a silver lining in this economic shit storm apocalypse.I read something along those lines in the NYTimes recently and thought to look it up. Turns out, it's plain wrong. The first part of the word "危" (wei) does in fact mean danger. The second part 机 pronounced "ji" simply means "time." So 危机 (weiji) just means "dangerous time" - the ship is sinking, there aren't enough life-boats, ohshit ohshit.  It does not mean "Danger-Opportunity".
The confusion comes from the fact that the word "Opportunity" is 机会 / jihui, which contains the same /ji as in 危/weiji. So it is assumed that 机/ji must also mean "opportunity" - but it doesn't. Literally translated the word for opportunity is "Time机 - Able会" (会/hui means "able") as in: time-when-things-can-be-done. Here again, 机/ji just means Time - that's all it means. It has never meant "opportunity" and their word for "crisis" will never mean anything other than a "dangerous time".. so bascially, we're all screwed.

sharing a song

Hey friends,

all of your work is so rediculously rediculous. I'm pondering/crafting some work of my own, but mostly I'm on the acting grind. That's not an excuse or anything- seriously. cause like one day I'll be big right? and then who needs a forum for adventurous thinking and original ideas because I'll be hanging with Paris- am I right?

.....

Now- I just tried to post a song to share- that didn't work. And I'd like to share some of my radioplays. But if a song doesn't work how will my radioplay work? Do I have to post it in print format? Do you guys even read?

Do you guys read?,

ULTRA-UNCLE

My nephews' father thinks he's a "POWERDAD," he's full of it.  His Sons don't love him, they hate his guts, I stay in shape and take care of his kids on the weekend.  my nephews ask me, "uncle teddy, how do ya have so much love," and i tell'em "'cause my ex-wife is your father's sister, and there is stregnth in that bond."  

Learn about the stregnth in your bonds, and be an ULTRA-UNCLE now.




Don't waste your time with blender's or books
My brother in law's shakes taste like tree bark, and his book is expensive off the shelf. 
My double-bi-weekley e-newsletter is free
Fuck You POWERDAD, I'm an ULTRA-UNCLE.

POWERDADS

I'm A Toy's 'r' Us Kid (from the future)

Future Boys and Future Girls,
As we move further into the future we approach the inevitable state of being that we so distrust.  Thats right future friends, as we journey forward through time and space we continuously cycle closer and closer to becoming..... GROWN-UPS.  The sad unhealthy state of consciousness that is triggered by the acknowledgment of sexual relations between santa clause and the easter bunny, leading to santa contracting a terminal case of leprosy.  Yes, I know, as we grow older, Santa is slowly dying, while the easter bunny hovers like a jackal over not so jolly saint nick's rotting carcass. 

BUT WE CAN STOP THIS NOW!!!!!!!!

by taking our vitamins everyday we can stregnthen the covalent bond between us and the cosmos, and by acknowledging the stupidity of grownupness everyday:

Here's my 8 step program to eternal youth!

step1: drop some vitamin tablets in your mouth, and tuck them under your toungue.
step2: gargle with warm salt water
step3: spit out the vitamin salt water mixture into a thermos (to keep proper temp)
step4: motivate yourself with a few positron phrases (i.e. youre a cow, or i love you and i love cheese and cookies, or simply point at yourself and laugh)
step5: reintroduce the vitasaltwater mixture into your mouth
step6: blink
step7: swallow
step8: SMILE LIKE A CHILD! (in the business we call this "smild")

Don't worry future friends: by preserving our youth we are not living in the past, we are merely moving through time as observers of innocence and style.

REMEMBER: like and egg, we are the yolk space is the shell, and time is the increasingly hot frying pan. DON'T GET COOKED!!!

on that note, as some of you may know there's gonna be a huge ragin' party in new brunswick at which some dj's you all are familiar with will be preforming, namely me, dave mos (the mossface killah) zach attack lickstrawwww, zenon from the future, and mike robinson (cheerios).

The idea is to preserve the spirit of the future folk, party our asses off, and in doing so preserve our youth.

The Party's goin down on Thursday January 29 
BE THERE OR GROW UP

The date is set but the party itself is still in a developmental stage, and i want all of you morons to get involved and continue the beautiful tradition of partying in the future!

stay young and get involved assholes

LOVES!! JASHAJASHAJASHAJASHAJASHAJASHAJASHAJASHAJASHA

future folk fests


Anyone know anything about sound engineering? I want to build some kind of sonic wall to enclose the Hollow next time around so the neighbors won't call the cops. I think it needs to be 8-10 feet high, curving inwards, and really cracked out looking. Or maybe we don't even need one continuous wall but a couple of segments, strategically placed?

any comments, questions, funny stories?

I hope you had fun at the MOSSDOLLARS (is that how they spell their names? because that is so cool cool)
