There are as many ways to love New York as there are things to love about New York. One of the things DJDeedle loves about New York is its sound. In the same way the city's diverse inhabitants mix and mingle in to make New York one of the most extraordinary places on Earth, the diverse sounds and musical styles of the city, from the refined and classic to the gritty and cutting edge, come together into something compelling and fresh.
Just how do you love New York?
Warning: New York style language throughout this Deedlecast.

1. To coalesce into an extremely hard, ordered repeating pattern extending in all three spatial dimensions.
2. To make clear and more comprehensible, and to take on a definite meaning.
DJDeedle liberally applies the Crystal Method to create a hard, ordered repeating pattern extending in all auditory dimensions.
This Deedlecast contains a couple of clearly rude words.
UPDATE 12/24/208: This Deedlecast was featured on Synthopia.com, a portal devoted to electronic music.

is a form of reflex or affective epilepsy, and involves
autonomic, behavioral, cognitive, and emotional reactions to selected
stimuli. The associated musicogenic seizures are generally believed to
be caused by the juxtaposition of musical sounds and frequencies that
are incomprehensible to the human brain, or that evoke emotional
reactions shocking to the psyche.
Sound frightening? It's just the normal state of things on Deedlecast, and this week's Deedlecast is designed to get all your synapses firing: This is your brain on music. If you happen to be prone to such seizures, please refrain from enjoying Deedlecast while driving or operating heavy machinery.
Also, if a rude word or two flips your switch, be warned there are a few in this show.

1: a large suitcase
2: a word or morpheme whose form and meaning are derived from a blending of two or more distinct forms or words (as smog from smoke and fog)
In fact, even the words Deedlecast and podcast are portmateaux.

Once the cornerstone of hand-made mixing, the art of the mixtape essentially has been lost, a casualty of sometimes cruel technological progress and fickle fashion. Somehow, a drag-and-drop iTunes playlist just doesn't have the magic of a lovingly and painstakingly crafted mixtape labored over for hours in unglamorous real-time analog. The casette tape has gone the way of the dodo, and even the compact disk rides off into the technological sunset.
But there is life after life for the mixtape in the virtual afterworld: a place where every song is selected with utmost care, enjoyed in real-time, every minute savored, and variety and innovation transcending what many saw as the cramped and archaic medium of the cassette tape. DJDeedle presents the mixtape essentials. A salute to cassette culture.
Caution: As with any good mixtape, there are few choice words in this one.

Hipsters, flipsters, and finger-poppin' daddies -- knock me your lobes.
Hipster or Hepcat, as used in the 1940s, referred to aficionados of jazz, in particular modern jazz, which became popular in the early '40s. The hipster adopted the lifestyle of the jazz musician, including their manner of dress, slang terminology, use of cannabis and other drugs, relaxed attitude, sarcastic humor, self-imposed poverty, and relaxed sexual codes.
What does it mean to be hip? The hip thing is to be able to perform the exactly appropriate action at all times, and that not easy, daddio. When in doubt, be cool. That's all there is to it.
Regardless of whether you are hepcat or a square, this week, DJDeedle's got you covered and will get you into this 21st Century reinterpretation of the Hepcat Club.

DJDeedle's friend, Nick, has launched a tasty new website all about food. Nick calls his creation, "Macheesmo."
What is Nick's website all about?
Food and cooking have become much too serious. This thing which should be fun and somewhat whimsical, but at the same time essential, has been lost to a world of processed, fast, and unhealthy food. The goal of this site is to explore cooking and food and also show people that it can be fun, exciting, and rewarding.What does "Macheesmo" mean? Let Nick tell you:
Macheesmo is about empowerment in the kitchen. I want people to feel confident around food. One thing that we can control is what we eat and what we feed those we care about. That’s why the motto for this site is: Cook something.
When you proudly go out on a Saturday night in a black t-shirt with flour stuck to it, that is Macheesmo. When you spend two days carefully preparing ribs that your friends devour in ten minutes, that is Macheesmo. When you can confidently cook for your girlfriend’s mom… Well, you get the idea.
