www.uptownmag.com diversions UPTOWN October 11, 2012 19 The Internet is forever And Embarrassing Nightclub Photos is a rude reminder of that fact www.alloneword.ca Anthony Augustine www.embarrassingnightclubphotos.com — Before the advent of social media, club photographers and smartphones, you could go out and party with your friends, get as trashed as you wanted and feel confident in the fact that you wouldn't remember what hap- pened in the morning and there would be no evidence—except for maybe some mystery puke at the side of your bed or some phone numbers you don't remember getting. That's all changed. Embar- rassing Nightclub Photos is packed with photos people wish were never taken. Embarrassing Nightclub Photos bit.ly/Ibiza_series — Simon Cowell's reality TV DJ competition is apparently dead in the water after the mega-producer and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith (the celebrities involved) couldn't come to terms. Not exactly sure what the Smiths have to do with DJ culture — wouldn't have DJ Jazzy Jeff been a better choice? In any case, if you're looking for a DJ competition, Burn's new documentary series, which follows 11 aspiring DJs trying to win a residency in party paradise, Ibiza, has recently gone online. The 11 contestants will work with mentors such as Luciano, Jamie Jones, 2ManyDJs and Sasha. "Beatport is proud to support Burn Studios in Ibiza this season with their inspiring program," says Clark Warner, execu- tive creative director. "Having met all the finalists earlier in Ibiza, it's clear that everyone had the drive, talent and passion to be in the final stage. Now we all get to watch the story unfold on what is surely an experience of a lifetime for any DJ." Warner currently works with online music store Beatport, and had formerly been Richie Hawtin's right-handman at the DJ's Plus 8 and Minus labels, so you knowhe's going to do his best to create something interest- ing to watch without relying on clichés, but also make sure the most deserving DJs wins the residency. Burn Studio's Ibiza Residency Series bit.ly/desaparecidos_live — Conor Oberst's (Bright Eyes) little- knownside project, Desaparecidos,has gotten back together after a lengthy hiatus. Recorded 10 years ago, its under-appreciated debut, Read Music/Speak Spanish, tackled the ills of modern America, the failure of urban expansion and suburbia, consumerism and even drone warfare. The band is releasing a two-song seven-inch which it recently performed from on Carson Daly. Protest music for 2012. Video of the Week: Desaparecidos – MariKKKopa and Backsell vimeo.com/imissdrugs—I Miss Drugs is a brilliant newweb series that plays around with themes of getting old and boring, becom- ing less hip and more domesticated. It's a revealing look at the path many late 20-somethings and early 30-somethings are headed down if they aren't careful. Video of the Week: I Miss Drugs writer.
