Violin battle

I stumbled across this vid on the internetz yesterday and I can’t help but being utterly amazed. I’ve been quite a good fiddler as a youngster, learning to play the violin before I learned to properly walk and talk. However, I always thought it’s kinda ‘uncool’, so I quit before I turned a teenager and experimented with a bunch of different instruments before I eventually ended up as a turntablist (which obviously wasn’t too bad of a decision after all). Nuff respect to Nigel Kennedy and Miri Ben-Ari, but THIS is truly swagful violinism and on some next level 2011 live show shit IMO. Highly inspirational.

Beijing NYE recap

Jeez, Beijing, why is you so effing frosty at the turn of the year. Many thanks to Bar Punk, The Opposite House, DJ Beware and Saul D and everyone who came out, for helping me cozy it up a bit with this massive NYE soirée in the basement of my (still) favorite hotel lately.
