Out Campaign


Rock Steady
Now that the country at long last has begun to come to it senses, two sensible and fair-minded states in the union have decided, at least for the time being, that marriage should not be restricted solely to people like Britney Spears and strangers who met the day before on a reality television show.  You know, heterosexuals.  This sudden unexpected moment of openmindedness, although limited to two states and the always sensible Canada, has given gays and lesbians the urge to make solemn what long before had to remain secret, and more recently, less secret, but unsolemnized and unrecognized by the civil authorities. 

Two couples who are dear friends of your humble DJ have chosen to do just that: make it solemn, and make it legal (void where prohibited, some restrictions apply, see store for details).  This week's Deedlecast is a salute to these rock steady couples, and others like them, who comprise the new Rock Steady Group.  Cheers and mazal tov!   Dale and Kevin, Matt and Alex, DJDeedle wishes you many years of health and happiness.

Hip-Hop Summer Non-Stop

The calendar tells us that the summer season is winding down.  But the summer still has some partying to do, and on Deedlecast, the gritty summer hip-hop doesn't have to end.

Note:  Rude words in this one

Supremely Special, Supremely Ross
Today's musical landscape would be much different if not for the Supremes, and particularly, Diana Ross.  The Supremes were the most popular "girl group" of the 1960's, and the most successful vocal group of the period after the Beatles.  The Supremes released hit after hit, charting a dozen number one hits between 1964 and 1969.  Ultimately, in 1969, the original group split up, with Diana Ross going more or less solo, touring as Diana Ross & the Supremes, though without Florence Ballard and Mary Wilson. 

The influence of the Supremes was vital in shaping the Motown sound and R&B. Similarly, the influence of Diana Ross and her solo work on R&B and Disco cannot be understated.  The sounds they pioneered can be found throughout today's music, and modern musicians, both female and male, owe them a debt of gratitude for their groundbreaking work. This week, DJDeedle salutes the queens of popular music, both as a group and in their solo careers, the supremely special Supremes.

No Tempo Ordinario
Tempo Ordinario:

In music, either moderate speed or four beats in a bar (as opposed to alla breve, where there are two beats in a bar).

Brace yourself.  This week's Deedlecast is definitely no ordinary tempo.

iWood Touch
DJDeedle has always found something magical about juxtaposing the high-tech and the low-tech, the synthetic and the organic.

DJDeedle's friends at Miniot in Holland have obliged DJDeedle's fascination by fashioning a case for his iPod Touch out of mahogany.  And to top it all off, they have stenciled the DJDeedle logo into the lid.

Electric Pie

There's nothing better than a nice slice of pie.  DJDeedle has loaded up this week's serving with many electronic layers, both familiar and new, and all wrapped the flaky crust you've come to expect.
