Happy Holidays from Diamond Dave

Call your friends and wish them well with these choice bits from the accapella of "Runnin With the Devil". You'll be glad you did!

I'm In a Dancing Mood

Just got back from vacation, and I'm feeling pretty good. Here's some sweet music for a sweet holiday season and an even sweeter New Year. Could be a rough one, but just remember, you don't need money to feel irie. Take it away, Delroy Wilson!

DnB vs. Church

This is kind of disrespectful, but still worth a look - someone mashed up video of a Baptist Church with audio from a DnB rave, and it really works. No offense intended to any baptists, and I gotta say... your church services are off the chain!

Bizarre Skate Video - Beez

This is my kind of skate video - weird and wacky. Lots of innovative tricks, going for originality if not technical skill. Gotta give these guys credit for extreme creativity.

This is Why DJs Should Use RECORDS

This is what the world will look like if all DJs switch to using laptops. I don't want to live in THAT world.

Lil Jon / Strawberry Shortcake Mash Up

Warning: the audio is NSFW. This is a great mashup though!

Penguin Escapes from Whales

Watch this video if you want to feel happy! This kooky penguin is being chased by a pod of HUGE killer whales, and finally he takes refuge in the cameraman's dinghy! He's just sitting there surrounded by people, like "what?" That penguin's got balls.

Justin.tv - DJ Mudfoot Show #2

(Note: I deleted the video from this page because I couldn't get it not to auto-play.)

This Justin.tv thing is perty cool. The other night I fired up the laptop and started broadcasting, then I got on AIM and invited some old friends from the Betalounge - we ended up having a little late night mashup session with folks dialed in from Northern California, Maine and Tokyo! The above video is a clip, the entire show is archived on my justin.tv channel. You'll notice a couple of things - one, the audio and video quality sucks. That's because I'm out in the garage on a weak wi-fi connection, I gotta do something about that. I think I'm going to take a 100-ft ethernet cable and run it out my front door around the back to the garage.

The other thing you'll notice is me getting up close to the camera and grinning. That's because I'm chatting with 2 old friends, who used to do the same thing with me in 1996! It was a complete blast from the past. Back then we used an ISDN modem and realaudio, we were laughing because while this is much easier now, the audio quality was about the same. I'm going to fix that!

Kid Is Terrified Of Puppets

Wow this is really insane. This clip shows a kid watching a puppet show and completely losing it. I feel bad for this kid because the puppet show is obviously freaking him out in a major way, and nobody has the decency to go hold his hand or ask him if he wants to leave... but props to the cameraman who sat there getting the whole thing on camera. What is he doing to his friend? Make sure to watch the entire clip because the kid really outdoes himself by the end!

I just noticed a lot of my friends on Facebook are sporting these new Touchgraph pictures, so I had to go check it out... it's an app that maps your social connections based on your friends and the photos you've been tagged in. This is pretty cool - I've seen similar applications but they were pretty elaborate and not available for free. The other thing that's great about this is the sheer amount of data available in a social network like Facebook - you could never get that by conducting surveys. Go check it out, it's definitely worth playing with. You can look it up on Facebook or just go to their site:


Mudfoot LIVE on Justin.TV

OK I am pretty excited to announce that I have a channel on Justin.TV. In case you haven't seen this site yet, it's like Youtube but for live broadcasting. Using their web-based 'broadcaster' I can DJ live from my garage and people can tune in and chat. I'll be on there in the evenings whenever I can, around 10pm US-Pacific time, spinning classic jungle and dubstep records and who knows what else.

This is pretty wild for me because I used to do a lot of 'webcasting' back in the day. Some friends and I founded the Betalounge back in 1996 and we used to spin live online every Sunday. I've done live DJ sets over the internet from clubs in San Francisco and New York, and I spun on the original internet pirate radio station in London. It used to take a lot of equipment and jury-rigging to pull this off... So it blows my mind that anyone with a laptop and an internet connection can do it now.

The Justin.tv site is not perfect, mind you... they have a lot of work to do. But it's still pretty amazing, and I'll be in there trying to make the most of it. So drop over there and check out my channel, add me as a friend, and hit me up in the chat when I'm broadcasting. Last night I talked to folks from Chicago and Seattle while I was spinning, it was great!
