it took me 30 years to achieve, but i've finally made it to the mile high club! that's right, i'm blogging from 30,000 feet (though a mile is only 5,280 feet). so i'm a many mile high club member.
there's not too much excitement on a flight, in fact i've take a picture with my eee pc's built in webcam.
granted this post itself is pretty unamazing, the fact that i'm doing what i'm doing is highly amusing. and the next time i post something like this will either be free wifi at the bottom of the ocean, or on the moon.

while surfing new music a few days ago i came across the website for this pacemaker device. the pacemaker is some sort of ipod/dj/do-hickey. i can't say i was impressed by an overpriced and under powered portable dj solution, but after the quirky black light dance video explanation of the device was over, something caught my eye. free desktop dj software? oh i want, i want! where do i test drive this?
so i downloaded the program and imported my 26,000 songs. this wasn't a great idea, as it took 2 days for pacemaker to analyze each second of each song, in order to count bpm and song pattern. i don't have 26,000 songs worth putting into a mix, so in retrospect that's one thing i'd do differently. however, after two days of waiting for song analysis to complete, i stitched together 11 songs creating my first programmed mix.
i can't say that this is the best mix ever, in fact some of the transitions need a bit more tweaking, but the track selection is good (in my opinion).
1. Animal (Peter Bjorn and John Remix) - Miike Snow
2. Delorean - Big Weekend
3. I'm Not Alone (Deadmau5 Remix) - Calvin Harris
4. Tivoli (Original Mix) - Steve Angello
5. Jump In The Pool (Thin White Duke Remix) - Friendly Fires
6. Hometown Glory (Axwell Remode Mix) - Adele
7. Last Dance In Tokyo (Gloves ReWrite) - Golden Bug
8. Make You Mine (Fred Falke Remix) - Miami Horror
9. Death And All His Friends (MMMatthias Remix) - Coldplay
10. Until We Bleed (Adieus Remix) - Kleerup Feat. Lykke Li
11. Shooting Stars (Cassian Remix) - Bag Raiders

and here's a screencap of the mix and software, it's pretty simple to use:
