SIDE DISH Episode: 104 HIV+ Dating

In: Donovan, Jonny, Stephen, Videos
side-dish-jonny-donovan-stephen

Here’s another segment we filmed over the weekend. In this segment of SIDE DISH, we have Jonny, Stephen and Donovan joined by special guest panelist, Mitch. The four discuss Adam’s much read “Clean and Tested?” article. We decided to dedicate an entire episode on this topic as it garnered a great deal of comments and deserved our full attention.

We also decided to bring on guest panelist, Mitch as he’s newly singled and re-entering the dating scene after a long hiatus. As a person in a long term relationship, I was fascinated to hear the other panelists’ viewpoints about the touchy topic of dating an HIV+ individual. Can you expect to receive full disclosure? Is that fair on the other party’s part? Should their HIV status even be a major factor in the dating decision? There are a few of the situations we discuss in this video.

As always, it was a one take pony- we feel it’s much more real and unrehearsed this way. Heck, we didn’t even know what Jonny was going to throw at us until 30 seconds before filming. Hope you enjoy it and we would love to hear your feedback.

Okay I know I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from the site, but I’ve been DJ’ing up a storm and I just started a new job so cut me some slack.  I’ve still found time to find some pretty awesome tracks to share with you all. 

I’m lovin’ the new La Roux album right now and I can’t stop listening to this remix of Bulletproof.

La Roux – Bulletproof (Tiborg Club Remix)

I pulled out this stellar Chris Moody remix at the club last weekend and the crowd just ate it up, check it out.

Check it out, and a Jordin Sparks remix, after the jump…

So Mariah has released another single.  Or should I say, covered (destroyed) an all time favorite of mine.

This time it’s the classic 1984 Foreigner song, ”I Want to Know What Love Is”. I remember when I was growing up I would listen to the original over and over again; unfortunately, this version will NOT be growing on me. This is a total train-wreck of an amazing track and I am deeply saddened that Mariah has chosen to ruin a piece of my childhood for me.

Mariah, seriously… not cool.

Listen to Mariah’s Version of the classic after the jump (if you dare)

owl-city-ocean-eyes

Okay so someone had to do it…

I’ve been listening to this song for about a week now and I just can’t make up my mind if it’s super cheesy or indie-cool.  The vocals are a little whiny for me but sort of melodic at the same time; stylistically, it reminds me of a cross between The Postal Service and Lights

Owl City is actually the music project of 23 year old Adam Young from Minnesota.  On his newest album “Ocean Eyes” he collaborates with a female vocalist, Breanne Duren on a  number of tracks.  Check out his website http://www.owlcitymusic.com/.  His North American tour includes a stop in Vancouver at The Biltmore on October 15th.

Check out The Saltwater Room (feat. Breanne Duren) and the video for Fireflies after the jump…

Landon’s Music Pick: Pink – Funhouse

Here’s the latest and greatest from Pink… I wasn’t sold at first but now I’m kinda loving it.  The video is pretty cool, lots of great costumes and special effects.  Of course two remixes of the song have already surfaced from Digital Dog and Buzz Junkies.  I’ve also heard rumors that Junior Vasquez may have been enlisted to produce a remix which is a bit shocking to me seeing as the Vasquez remix of Please Don’t Leave Me was a total bomb!
Here is theOriginal music video.

The Digital Dog remix is awesome (as usual), but I find the Buzz Junkies remix a bit too commercial.  What do you think?

So I was in a staff meeting the other day at work and our very socially conscious office manager played us this YouTube video that I found extremely humbling. After watching it I feel a bit apprehensive of things to come… almost a bit scared.

Check it out here:

Personally, the thought of a computer smarter than all human cognitive ability put together is rather discomforting. I guess all we can do is wait for the day when technology takes over and we no longer need to rely on human intellect for decision making. Yikes!

The video was created by Karl Fisch, and modified by Scott McLeod; Globalization & The Information Age. It was even adapted by Sony BMG at an executive meeting they held in Rome this year. Credits are also given to Scott McLeod, Jeff Brenman.

I recently got the chance to try out the Equmen Core Precision Singlet and I have to say, when I pulled the generic looking tank top out of the cardboard box, I was a little skeptical of all of the hype sprawled across the Equmen website (http://www.equmen.com/):
