Could be totally off-base here but what about Mixmeister? Have a buddy with no DJing experience who's knocked out some good mixes using that.

Would've loved to have been there for Tyrant but, alas, too young for those experiences.

Demolishing, every track better and better, isn't a very good track..... were you on drugs mate? tsk!!

Maaaaayyyybeeeee.

And surely you've had those moments where a track you know isn't that great just happens to sound great at a given time. I'll also add that a lot of that sort of "acid-electro-house" stuff of the mid-2000's hasn't aged that well. Sounded fresh and interesting during the era though.

Him and Mark Farina used to hold court pretty regularly here in the Bay way back in the mid- to late-90's. Always smashed the place to smithereens. Nice interview. Cheers for the link (usually avoid FACT tbh).

It's pretty cop. Sans a few non-cop vocally songs. Very percussive if that's copable.

Agreed. It was like when there were rumors that Twilo was to reopen on the old GU board. People lost their marbles. But you can't go back. You can't recreate. It will never be the same.

Two, it's pretty obvious where the motivations behind the push are grounded. Republicans do better when less people vote. They do very well when less poor people vote. Their tactics are motivated by vote suppression. That's just the reality. Three, the right to vote is protected under the constitution. The constitution has also added amendments over the years relating to voting rights. If the Right is going to be so damn literal about amendments such as the 2nd, well they have to take their lumps with voting rights as well - unless, of course, they want to pass a new amendment, the first of its kind in US history limiting voting rights, one that requires an ID, they can try and push that through Congress and the Oval Office. Simpletons try and say, "well, you need an ID to drive sooooo." Driving isn't a constitutional right. Voting is.

I'll also add that as someone who works with the undocumented in the area of public health, I can assure you that they are totally and completely terrified of putting their names on anything official and anything related to the government. They are not showing up to elections in any meaningful way.

I never said there was rampant voter fraud. Except for the dead in LA...lol. Your controversial state laws just make it very simple to do and is in violation of Federal voting laws. California passed law that allows illegal aliens to obtain DL's. On the back of that your state passed into law automatic voter registration with your DL. They would have to opt out but come on...its a no brainer. Your last comment makes me think you don't care much for voting and immigration laws. Have to ask..have you taken the Oath of Allegiance?

This is certainly a bipartisan issue. Not sure you need to worry about the rino's in your state. The Latino vote is holding strong.

No, you didn't. But voter fraud is routinely brought up as a justification for requiring identification to exercise a constitutional right. This despite there being zip, zero, zilch evidence that voter fraud is even an issue. If this country has any problem in regard to voting, it's that not enough people vote. Yet the Right is trying to erect further barriers, in this case a barrier that's more or less equal to a poll tax, to further their hegemonic political goals. Yes, I have taken the Oath of Allegiance and I do care about voting laws; I care about those that are currently on the books, not the discriminatory backwards step of requiring identification. Don't really care about immigration laws because they are totally and completely out of date (with one side refusing to even discuss the issue other than wall building). Not to mention the sad reality that segments of our economy, specifically farming, are dependent upon an underclass of people who work for sub-minimum wages and who pay taxes, but who have non of the protections legal documentation status allows.

I had an idea some time ago, that the presidential two-term limit be 10 years; the first term being 6 years, the final being 4. The rational being that the President, learning a brand new job, really only has 2 years to show they're worthy of the position as the final 2 years of the first term is pretty much just campaigning in hope for a second.

All hypothetical obviously but why not just remove the 'two-term-limit'?

So if Obama had wanted to run again - and who's to say whether he would - then he just makes himself available to the Democrats as a candidate and then goes through the same cycle as their other candidates and, if successful, goes forward to the Presidential vote for another four year term - as he did at the end of his first four years.

One thing you Americans should do as-soon-as-fucking-possible though is legislate to limit the time your whole election cycle takes - this Presidential campaign will have collectively been on the road for well over 18 months by the time votes are cast - frankly that's pathetic and there is absolutely no reason why a mature, sophisticated, democracy cannot get the whole sideshow over and done with in one third of that time at the absolute most...

Obama  can run again in four years -  consecutive terms are limited to eight years of course, but considering how little gets done in 8,  I vote for three terms of four years each.   jurisprudence absolutist would argue of course  that would upset the system of checks and balances between the other two branches of government – the executive and legislative.  The ostensible term of a 12 year president may put more power in the appointment process that goes into Supreme Court nominees – that is the argument they would make.

I don't think he can. If Hillary had Bill as her VP, she won, and was then killed or something, the presidency would fall to Paul Ryan as the Speaker of the House as Bill cannot be president for a third term. If I remember correctly, it's a relationship between the 12th and the 22nd amendments.

"Age Of Love" has also held up really well over the years. Hell, even the guy who "revived house music", Luciano (#cunt), was playing it for a bit there.

And I agree on all accounts. No need for another radio show/podcast. Sasha has his own schedule for releasing mixes (for those that are fussed). Renaissance are hardly the brand I'm looking to for new, innovative music. Their only noteworthy release was 22 years ago! Nobody other than oldies and nerds even know who they are.

Everyone knows Trump's a cunt but watching this man in full rhetorical flow simply hammers home what a pathetic figure Trump truly is...

I had an idea some time ago, that the presidential two-term limit be 10 years; the first term being 6 years, the final being 4. The rational being that the President, learning a brand new job, really only has 2 years to show they're worthy of the position as the final 2 years of the first term is pretty much just campaigning in hope for a second. At least with my proposal, they get a bit of time to learn, the mid-terms aren't a complete deal-breaker, they get two years for pushing policy before heading off on the campaign trail.

I just don't think in the current format we really get a good idea who the president even is before we're expected to head off an vote again. That said, it's been pretty easy for me to pick given the complete mongoloids the Republicans have been sending out election after election.

And agreed. Obama has been great. History will be kind to his 8 years.

Interesting read, and he has some valid points, but him stating that minorities and people that live in poverty are not going to have an easy way to get the polling station is absolute nonsense.   If anything these people are more pissed more than ever,  and will find a way to get to the polling stations, get a ride, get a taxi, wait in line and basically do whatever it takes to ensure that Donald Trump is not elected.   Now more than ever people are concerned with their future, and a future that does not include Donald Trump.

Would have to disagree with you a bit here. Minorities and impoverished people will have difficulties voting but not because of having an easy way of getting TO the polling station, instead they'd have issues getting IN to the polling station. So many voter ID laws and other barriers of entry put in by the GOP to "combat voter fraud" really in turn disallow a great number of registered democrats to vote because they can't produce the necessary identifying documentation to allow them to do so. This tactic is specifically aimed at this demographic. While this may not be so common in California (where I reside) or other 'wealthy' states, but plenty of the southern border states as well as those in the rust belt will have minorities and those living in poverty feeling this form of legal discrimination.
