DNA Lounge: Wherein we now webcast from Above DNA!

Well, we're exactly 13 months late, but we finally have the audio webcast up and running in Above DNA! You can listen to the archive of the Anoraak / Marrow show from last night. There's some static at the beginning from our last-minute scramble to get the cabling right, but it gets going around 9:35pm.

This means we've got two simultaneous webcasts working: both Anoraak in Above DNA and Norma Jean in the main room went out live at the same time.

There's no video in Above DNA yet. Video's a much more complicated and expensive project.

BMC labs is focused on developing biological implants that will make their hosts faster, smarter and healthier while improving sexual performance, and increasing the average life span.

It all begins when you grow your own bionanohybrid cells in our lab. After six weeks of personalizing POD's AI system, the resulting organ is ready for implantation. During that time, you teach the organism about your needs, loves and desires by engaging with stories, games and visual content.

After implantation, your experience evolves into "hands free" mode; visual and auditory experiences immerse you in fictional overlays to the real world. You stay in the driver's seat by simply activating and deactivating POD with a thought. Now able to directly build on your sympathetic nervous system's reactions to the world around you, POD's ability to inspire and fulfill you accelerates.

Costco Apologizes After Local Pastor Finds Bibles Labeled as 'Fiction'

LOL Religionists:

"Costco's distributor mislabeled a small percentage of the Bibles, however we take responsibility and should have caught the mistake. We are correcting this with them for future distribution," Costco said in a statement. "In addition, we are immediately relabeling all mislabeled Bibles. We greatly apologize for this error."

Moose-eating shark rescued in Newfoundland harbour

"It [the moose] had the fur and all the liner on it -- it was about two feet long, maybe." [...]

Greenland sharks are rarely seen on the northeast coast of Newfoundland. It is a lumbering bottom dweller that spends most of its long life blinded from parasites feeding on its corneas. [...]

The creature goes long periods without food, so when it comes across even a discarded carcass, such as a moose, it will gorge itself to near suffocation.

DNA Lounge: Wherein the stupid, it burns.

I must share with you a couple of our incident reports from last night. We get a lot of stupid behavior here, but sometimes people go way above and beyond the call of duty.

At approximately 1:50am, I responded to a medical call in Above DNA. When I arrived, I discovered an Asian male laying on the ground near the stage. Upon investigation, I discovered that there was no medical issue with the subject and that he had previously assaulted the DJ, two customers and attempted to knock over the DJ booth. The customer did not respond to any verbal instructions, but was responsive to painful stimuli.

I informed the customer that he could not lay on the floor in the venue and that he need to stand up and step outside. The customer refused and closed his eyes. He stated that he was "perfectly within his rights to lay on the floor." I informed him that we would assist him physically if neccesary. Security staff and I lifted the customer and began carrying him to the above door. The cusotmer began thrashing and kicking, striking me in the groin with his foot. After placing him on the ground, we handcuffed the customer and escorted him out of the venue. The customer then stated that he was going to kill me.

Contacted SFPD at 2:00am. SFPD arrived at approximately 2:10 am. The responding officers then left the scene due to a higher priority call. [...the guy sat on the sidewalk in cuffs for 3 more hours...]

At 4:45am SFFD unit M89 arrived. After releasing the subject to the SFFD Officers, they determined that he was not in any medical danger and allowed him to walk home. SFFD left the scene at 5:00 am.

And, in international relations:

At about 11:30 pm I was standing outside the front door when I witnessed an individual try and sneak in behind the door person. I stepped between him and the inside an asked if I could help him. He said he was trying to get his coat. I told him I would gladly get his jacket for him if he could give me his coat check ticket. At this time he started cursing and reciting strings of numbers. I replied in kind, telling him the local zip codes. We seemed to reach an impasse so I again asked him for his coat check ticket. He responded that he had the strongest fences in Sweden. He then proceeded to hug random strangers on the sidewalk and pull their hair. At this time I moved him away from the front door and next to the bike racks. I again tried to get his coat check ticket to no avail.

I stepped away to help some other customers when he started to try and urinate on the bike rack. I told him that he would be going to jail if he did not put away his private parts and move along. He started to re-dress himself and I turned again to help some other customers when I felt urine splashing on my leg.

At this time I took the patron by the shoulder and walked him around the corner. I told him he had two choices: go away, or go to jail. I then left him around the corner. I returned to the front of the venue to tell staff about him when he stumbled back towards the club and fell on two customers in line. At this time Arlo pulled him out of line and I told him, "last chance, go away or your going to jail". He verbally chose jail and called us faggots. I called the police non-emergency number at 11:42pm. Unit 103 responded at 11:49pm. At this time they took Jonas from Sweden into custody. They took him to the station to see more of America.

Last week, David got bit on the ankle -- the ankle -- so hard that it drew blood.

The things we put up with for you people. You don't even know.

This is Belgium Part Two: Cherry Moon On Valium

Slowing down music is very in right now. But it's the leisurely tracksuit dancing that really makes this work.

Even though these Belgian records sound very "now", they are actually 20 years old and were meant to be played at a much, much faster speed. At the time this was the devil's music for us, but we have learned to listen through the claps and distorted kicks and discovered that if you slow these really dark and heavy techno records down all the way to about 115 bpm, it suddenly makes them sound less frantic, ballsier and a lot sexier. Belgium at its best when pitched down.

The covers of these records are quite generic and don't really lend themselves to animating , so we figured we would bring you the visual aspect of this musical genre that you can't not be fascinated by: the dance. We were very lucky to have found some people who can still do the typical moves, and with them dancing in front of the record sleeves (and sometimes inside of them) we bring you our ultimate tribute to a glorious period in our Belgian musical heritage.
