I discovered a cure for chronic bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections and am giving it away for free

EDIT JUNE 11, 2018 After posting this and communicating with ladies online, it seems I am not the only—or even first—person to arrive to this conclusion. Once you know what search terms to look for (namely “hydrogen peroxide” and “bv”) a whole slew of pages come up, mostly from other ladies who have tried and successfully utilized H2O2 to fix their junk. But a few stand-out results had me stewing, […]
My interview for The Stranger’s “Spun Out” column

March 28, 2018 | 0 Comments

Seattle’s notorious tastemaker Dave Segal invited me to grace The Stranger’s content carnivale once more, this time for SLOG‘s ongoing Spun Out column. It was hard to narrow it down to 5, but I also got to wax poetic a bit about how I approach my role as a DJ… and any frequent reader of my blog will know how I love my soapbox 🙂
disseminating conclusion of the day: singularity vs reality

March 24, 2018 | 0 Comments

Here’s a peek into what it’s like to live in my head… a constant stream of linear and non-linear thought “patterns” (pattern is a severe understatement. try all thoughts available at once always.) using nothing but scientific facts, proven in labs, published by peer-reviewed journals of record and searchable by anyone on Google Scholar: brainwaves are electrical heartwaves are magnetic our bodies operate on electromagnetic (EM) power EM power is […]
Nastina on The Vortex c89.5 FM February 2018

February 25, 2018 | 0 Comments

I wasn’t all that stoked on this month’s 2-hour set on The Vortex. In my mind it wasn’t terrible, but there were a lot of places where the mixes didn’t go as I wanted and I was having a hard time getting “into” it. I need new music, really. It’s hard to play well when you’re tired of all your tunes. I also forget that while I may be tired of […]

Throwback Thursdays circa 1999: The Very First Mix I Ever Recorded

November 9, 2017 | 0 Comments

This weekend I found a box of old minidiscs in a drawer and at that very moment remembered that I actually still have a minidisc recorder. So I took the whole shebang and DIGITIZED THAT ISH! I’ll be posting a couple of them, so here’s the first (har har) aptly named “Alpha.” I also took the liberty of cleaning up the audio a bit: smoothed out recording glitches, dynamically leveled […]
Nastina mix: Archive for The Vortex c89.5 September 2017

This month’s 2-hour power shower! I threw back to some ooooooooold tunes that no one will recognize for my own pleasure. And now it’s yours (I hope).

How to get over a breakup: Transmuting pain to power and overcoming depression

September 8, 2017 | 0 Comments

Yesterday I responded to a close friend having trouble recovering from an excessively abusive relationship. I’ve had a bit of experience with that sort of thing myself, so decided to share my Ancient Whitegirl Secret to dealing with post-love depression. Or any type of pain, really. It got quite the response on facebook comments thread so I figured it was something worth sharing publicly. Here is a copy of the […]
2 New Nastina Mixes = 3 hours of Nastiness

September 8, 2017 | 0 Comments

It’s been a while, but Nastina had 3 freshie hours of breaks, bass, bassline, trap and drungle’n’bass go out over the KNHC Seattle airwaves. Now with 100% more scratching! It only took me 19 years to start learning, but after 6 months of flailing it’s starting to sound on point. The August mix has a few scratch sections that sound like I actually  know what I’m doing. I don’t… but […]
How to purge guilt, trauma triggers and all that ‘ish like a boss

June 24, 2017 | 0 Comments

I was chatting with someone today who asked what to do with the soul-crushing guilt they were carrying around. “Oooof,” I said. “Guilt… guilt is a killer.” Guilt is by far the most damaging emotion a human can have. It’s born of fear and contributes to all sorts of sicknesses—physical and intangible—and causes us to do all sorts of insane, damaging things to ourselves and our loved ones. The worst part is […]
