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 […]

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 […]
Take back your power. Declare your sovereignty.

April 11, 2017 | 1 Comments

The concept may sound trite, but if you don’t disagree with something… don’t make a mental note and consciously declare your stance… if you dig your head in the sand and ignore something because the idea overwhelms you… at the end of the day you are signing up for it. The world is a disaster. Life is often almost too much to handle, many of us struggle with depression, financial […]

HOLY SHEET ON A SCHEECK! I’ve spent the last day and a half going down the most amazing rabbit hole of… water. the newest re-discoveries of water. did you know that water: is the best antibiotic, antiseptic and antiviral? Will change it’s molecular structure (without changing it’s chemical makeup), resulting in being toxic or medicinal? has colloidal properties? Has memory? Has magnetism? Reacts to electromagnetic frequencies as weak as the […]
On-point breakdown of DNA’s little-known functions, fractal structure, sound, emotion, timespace relationships and more… presented by the most adorable scientist ever

April 4, 2017 | 0 Comments

From birth through high school graduation I was an art nerd. Math was never my strongest area, and while science and technology interested me, in my mind they were guilty by association. I managed to make it to 12th grade without taking a single science class and still graduated with only 4 quarters of basic intro sciences I cruised through with little homework. But that lack of interest took a […]
