Radical Fun Day: Cheering For Equality, USE, And Some Shameless Plugging

by matttbastard

BRING. IT. ON!

Bonus:

IT IS ON!

Yeah, it doesn’t get more RadFun than United State of Electronica.

Srsly.

Of course, the lovecats of newmindspace and robotpilot industries also fit the bill, as do those shameless Jagerfiends @ Nocturnal Commissions (pray for their livers). Just remember: there’s more than enough radical fun in the world to make every day Radical Fun Day. Go forth, brethren, make is so, and remember these words of wisdom from Slim Goodbody:

(Damn, that motherfucker freaked me out when I was a kid.)

2 Seemingly Trivial Things That Helped Turn Around My (Overall Not-So-Awesome) Day

by matttbastard

1. Blog For Radical Fun Day – Oct. 19th. Oh hell yeah. More details @ Tom’s place (thanks for the blogroll add, BTW! Hell, thanks to everyone who’ve shown us the love lately – we at bastard.logic love y’all right back!)

2. Northern State!!!11

(New rekkid now out on Ipecac, one of my fav labels – Mike Patton FTW!)

Sometimes the little things really do make all the difference (somewhat trite, but still, when you come this close to the verge…)

Update: Oh, and an extra-squishy *squee* for a not-at-all-trivial certain special someone from Down Under, whom I absolutely adore more and more every day (feel free to retch in comments, if the need strikes).
