Closer to Virginity (nine inch nails vs. Madonna)

This is a bit of silliness that had its genesis years ago — around twenty, actually — one night when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater up in Anchorage. With nine inch nails’ “Closer” playing, when it got to the chorus, I slap-faded over to Madonna’s “Like a Virgin”, creating (however clumsily) the mashed-up chorus, “I want to fuck you like a virgin…”. Not only did it get laughs, but every so often I’d have people come up and ask me to do it again (never an easy task when doing it live).

Many years later, and with better technology (albeit technology I don’t really know how to use; this was my first real experiment with Logic Pro), I decided to come back and attempt a more modern version of the idea.

Mostly, I think it works. Enough to post, at least. While I’m not sure this one is worthy of the dance floor, hopefully it at least gets a few laughs.

Alligator House Dance Party

Nothing terribly fancy here — just an hour’s worth of playing around, entertaining my nieces (ages 10 and 7) during a visit. But since this was my first mix in a few years, and I didn’t train wreck too horribly, I decided to go ahead and toss it up.

(“Alligator House” is the nickname for our home, as it’s green in color and the angled roof of the carport out front makes it look vaguely like an alligator.)

Sounds From the Lost Abbey 11

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the eleventh (and, at this point, last) in the series!

  1. White Zombie: More Human Than Human (Meet Bambi in the King’s Harem)
  2. The Sisters of Mercy: When You Don’t See Me
  3. Republica: Drop Dead Gorgeous
  4. The Cure: Friday I’m In Love (Strangelove)
  5. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: A Martini Built for 2
  6. Pulp: Common People (Full Length)
  7. Depeche Mode: Blasphemous Rumors
  8. Nine Inch Nails: Suck
  9. The Cure: Close to Me (Extended)
  10. Soft Cell: Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go (Hot Tracks)
  11. Orbital: Halcyon + On + On
  12. Underworld: Cowgirl
  13. Underworld: Rez
