You scored as Cabaret Voltaire. Sheffield-based band Cabaret Voltaire were formed slightly before punk but are often said to be godfathers of electronica and industrial music. Their music is a innovative combination of synthesisers, tape samples and electronic beats, best heard on 'The Original Sound of Sheffield 1978-82'.

Which Post Punk band are you?

I find it awesome that PIL and Joy Division are my second and third options. Heh.

I'm sorry, though: Gary Numan is post-punk. And punk. And post-post-punk. And all of the above. Gary Numan is, in fact, all music, and all music is Gary Numan.

I finally had some decent absinthe yesterday, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] martygreene, who also introduced me to the Wormwood Society, an online community of contemporary absinthe enthusiasts. I sampled both a French absinthe (Montmarte) and a Swiss Clandestine variety, and was so enthused by both--though the Montmarte was the ultimate winner--that I simply had to leap online and order some.

My association with absinthe is...well, rather spotted. I tried to make some myself ages ago--I think I was in my first or second year of college--by growing wormwood in my backyard and whatnot, but that just went nowhere. Many years later, I had some domestic stuff that...well, tasted pretty okay, but really didn't agree with my stomach. In fact, it made me downright sick. But the biggest reason for that is most likely the fact that I was drinking the shite neat: completely uncut with water or anything else. Funny it didn't eat a hole right through me.

Anyway, after sampling authentic Good Stuff yesterday, I must say that I've found myself an instant enthusiast. To the point that I ordered a bottle of Montmarte (and some stuff for Lilly, too), and have decided to give up my dreams of turning Casa Pegritz into an opium den in favor of dreams of turning this joint in a little chunk of old Paris. Let's see...I've got the low lighting. I've got the antique furniture and other assorted vintage relics, many of a medical nature, but still....I've definitely got the world-weariness and the fin-de-siecle decadence. Soon I will have the liqueur, and then it will be on.

I'm done with Cuervo and the rest. If I'm going to be doing any kind of drinking these days, however little, it might as well be with high-quality imported absinthe. Baudelaire and Huysmanns would certainly approve.

....Wait a second. Does this earn back all the Goth points I lost to wearing a bright pink 2006 AFC Champions Stillerz ballcap to Ceremony last night?

Wow. Ceremony last night was a blast. Kudos to [livejournal.com profile] siliconedreamer and [livejournal.com profile] k3llya for kicking my ass to pieces. And to [livejournal.com profile] mirvana for the lovely picture of myself and Kirsten: she looks positively beautiful, but I look like I'm ready to have a damned heartattack or something. Considering that I'd just been boogie-ing for thirty minutes straight--and was hella tipsy--by the time that photo was taken, I probably was having a heartattack.

I blew waaaaaayyyyyy too much money at Eide's today, people. I now have Ed Wood on DeeVamaDee--one of my alltime favorite movies--and, EVEN BETTER, the new special edition of David Lynch's absolute masterpiece, Dune. It is by will alone I set my mind in motion, and it was by will alone I spanked my wallet senseless on more than just that. I thought dropping $50+ on a bottle of Montmarte was a lot, but you ain't seen nothin' yet.

I also picked up the new Leaether Strip triple-disc album/boxed set, After the Devastation, which I've been listening to for most of the day. Damned good stuff. I barely listen to any new industrial anymore, but...come on, people--this is Claus Larsen here. Nothing he does can suck. Plus, I picked up the new Architect album, The Analysis of Noise Trading, and...jesus, Herr Daniel Meier knows what the hell he's doing, doesn't he? Melodic, atmospheric IDM at its most melodic, atmospheric, danceable, and intelligent. "Vectorize (original manipulation)" is going to be exerting SUCH an influence on my future work. And I also picked up a cheap little CD called Re:Made that is basically a DJ-mix CD of various techno, deep house, and gay-bar house covers/remixes of various pop songs like Nelly's "Hot in Herre" and Phil Collins' "Easy Lover." Straight up, those two songs, and the complete remake of Sheila E's "Nasty Girl," are completely bad-assed. "Hot in Herre" in particular sounds like Peaches or Adult. trying to be slick, but, man, it just works.

I also got some Corpse Bride figures--and almost walked out of there with the DeeVamaDee, too...but they only had the full-screen version. Man, funk dat. They'll have the widescreen editions in by Tuesday, though, so. Doesn't matter to me, though, since I ordered it already from DeepDiscountDVD.com and will have it tomorrow...but, hell, I really wanted to see it. Ohwell. Dune.
