Join us as we thrust into house music..
As of 10/13/03, we are slowly getting back on to a new server. We are told that it will take a few days before everything is linked properly.. something about "nameservers" yadda yadda. Thank you for your patience!
I have been in a Hollywood pressure cooker for the last few weeks, and so this is the worst time for something like this to happen. Many have emailed to suggest hosting options; unfortunately what many don't realize is that this site was about 1GB big, and growing larger even still because of all the music clips.
One option would be to cut down on the music, but that's unacceptable. There are children out there who have no idea what "drop a house" means. There are those who think that "atom bomb" is only a weapon. No.. the music must remain. All of it.
We could reduce the sound quality of all the music; but that solution is also unacceptable. This year in fact we began the laborious process of improving the sound quality of every single last one of the clips.
I have had hardly a moment to really think this through, but I hope to soon. Thanks to everyone who has written so far, and apologies to all who have written and not received a response. I haven't had time to read all of your email, but I will.
The House of Diabolique has been kicked off of its server.
Anyone who can make suggestions or help hosting this site, please make contact.
I would like to say that if I had been able to write a real web page this week, I would have written about how much I despise two words, along with the people who use them and the people they refer to. These words are hipster and fashionista.
To hipsters I say this: "hippies" were once considered hip too, thus their name, but today hippies are seen as an anachronistic joke. That is exactly how I see you; that is exactly what you are: a joke.
To fashionistas I say that searching endlessly for the perfect bags or outfits upon which you can advertise your enslavement to corporate fashion entities is not just stupid but a complete waste of your potential as a human being. Do you follow all instructions given to you? 20 years of provoking.. thoughts. Fucking insidious, indeed.
Recently I found some D&G sunglasses at a club. Most of my friends considered me crazy for promptly blacking out the D&G logo, but I had to. I felt compelled and I was aroused as I did it.
The hipsters and fashionistas who cling to anti-corporation and anti-globalization politics (only because it's fashionable) are the same ones who fetishize clothing with the biggest designer logos. Vapidity strikes twice.
But let me go. I am too busy trying to figure out how to get this website back "on the air" to write in detail. As for why the website was booted from it's old home, I am not quite sure yet; but the expulsion is permanent.
I hope to return soon.. ideas and suggestions of hosting options are appreciated.
PS. I am also morally opposed to stylists.
Week of 9/15/03
If youi're like me and have any brain whatsoever then you hate Jennifer Lopez. She's a rotten, talentless whore.
