Winter Music Conference Announces 2012 Dates

Winter Music Conference
March 16-25, 2012
Miami Beach, FL

***For Immediate Release***

October 12, 2011 – South Florida, U.S.A.

Winter Music Conference (WMC) opened its 2012 season in South Florida today with the announcement of the Winter Music Conference 2012 dates. This will be the 27th annual program for what is largely regarded as the pre-eminent platform on the global music industry calendar for launching new music, technology and trends. Winter Music Conference Week 2012 happens March 16 – 25, 2012 in Miami Beach, Florida.

For 2012, WMC plans to further enhance the WMC experience by delivering ten non-stop days of music programming in Miami Beach and Miami. This expansion will wrap the program week with two full weekends of parties and events. WMC Co-founder, Bill Kelly, explains, “Expanding the WMC dates was an easy decision given the high demand of artists, businesses and industry delegates. Miami Beach and the greater Miami area boast some of the most celebrated event and club venues as well as the hotels and resorts that comprise South Beach’s famed Art Deco District. Hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops and every sort of possible entertainment venue are filled to capacity during WMC Week to the point where five days just wasn’t enough.”

New for 2012, WMC will be unveiling correlated segments of its industry program dedicated to music and fashion on its opening weekend and indie rock meets electronica programming under the WMC Rocks header on the closing weekend, in addition to its standard programming and events. More details will be announced over the coming weeks.

Blue Thundercat Pokeballs (above).

It’s always a treat when one of our all-time favorite pill reporters checks in.  In this case, our man steamroller out in Southern California gives us news of a so far little known Pokeball, the Blue Thundercat.  You may remember steamroller, whose other report became quite legendary around here.

In case you are wondering, yes, steamroller plugged (anally ingested) these Thundercats.  Let’s take a look at his trip report, recently submitted to

User Report: It’s my second report, thankfully this one had much better results.

11:15: Swallowed the first pill around 20 minutes before making it to downtown San Diego.

11:30: Start feeling onset, really surprised, it was really fast and I had a light meal beforehand. Nothing too intense, my buddy starts to feel it, it’s his first time.

11:45: Parked by Horton Plaza and walked down towards the baseball stadium. Really happy.

12:15: My buddy swallows his other pill, I pop one and plug the other, whole pill I didn’t crush it up and mix it with water first due to being in public. Both not peaked, but rolling for sure.

12:40: Peaked on the first pill, coming up on the other two. We sit in the car when we went back for water and cigarettes. Listen to some music. My buddy tells me this is the best night of his life, first time of many. Eye wiggles start.

1:00 back around the hard rock hotel, can’t get in for some reason, but we stare at the HUGE TV and dance outside to music. Eye shakes get really intense, but it feels good. Jaw clenching utilized to fuck trident layers with my mouth.

1:15: Meet the HOTTEST Ukrainian tourists asking random girls for hugs. They can’t speak english so well, and I guess they had to take off. Best hug ever though. Waves are coursing over my body. I just want to be with everyone.

1:45: Walking in a more deserted area of SD, raced up some stairs which felt AMAZING but made us both ridiculously out of breath for a long time. Eye wiggles make it IMPOSSIBLE to read fine print. Deep conversation flowing. Still clenching jaw.

2:15: No sign of coming down yet, hopped a couple fences and stripped down to jump into a hotel hot tub. Oh good lord did it feel good. Swam, both making sure the other wasn’t overheating or anything, just sitting underwater for a second is amazing.

2:30: abandon our wet underwear and bail, buddy fails to pee hahaha. Being wet in the wind is bliss. Somehow get into a few other hotels that require keys. Stand on balconies and look down in amazement.

3:00: Coming down a little but not much. We’re rubbing each others head which is the greatest come-back ever. Random hugs, tlaking to every sketchy person who walks by.

3:30 we make it back to the gaslamp, buddy gives money to every homeless person he came across. Definitely coming down, we both sit down and play guitar with a panhandler, talk to the most fucked up person ever, buy a hot girl a sandwhich. More random hugs. Legs are SOOOO tired.

4:00: Back at the car, we chill listening to music, almost all the way down. No eye wiggles, but plenty of jaw clenching. Not really depressed at all.

5:00 after a pretty quiet hour I start up the car, I haven’t felt too messed up to drive in over an hour, so I start to drive back. Concentrating is a little hard, but I’m fine.

After I got home, I never slept. Not until the next night. My jaw clenched all day, regardless of magnesium supplements. No depression, only good memories, still in the after-glow 🙂

They were pretty clean, real good pills. They definitely have MDMA, and it was suggested by a friend maybe a little caffeine because of the jaw clenching. Awesome come up time, slammed me from 0 to ROLLING in about an hour max.

Plugging is a more effective method of ingesting ecstasy, IMO. It reduces nausea, shortens the come up by a LOT, and for me 2 pills swallowed = 1 pill plugged. Some claim it’s like three. I swear by it! Look up good methods, it’s not as uncomfortable as you think!

Be safe! When I roll I end up doing stupid stuff like driving (my last report ended with a car crash) or breaking into places, even if it’s just a closed hot tub! But it’s good advice to try to abide by any and all laws when rolling, because if the cops show it’s bad news.

A grade pills, not the best I’ve had, but the second best.

I’d like to take a moment to thank steamroller publicly for his very informative report.  Over the weekend, steamroller contacted me, told me about his experience, and asked if he should make a report.  I’d like to thank him, once again, for reaching out to us, and for going ahead and filing the report, which is an excellent description of his experience.

steamroller, I love your writing!  Your night really comes to life for us.  I can almost feel a hot Ukrainian girl hugging up on me, and the gratitude of the hottie you bought a sandwich for!  And you are absolutely right about plugging.  It is one of the “best” modes of ingestion, and one of the strongest.  It can amplify the effects of the pill dramatically, as you suggest.  It may also give you better insight into the substances you are ingesting.  Remember that it was steamroller, after plugging that Blue Angry Bomb Pokeball months ago, who said he thought the pill seemed dirty.  That was one of the first reports on Pokeballs we’ve seen that wasn’t totally glowing.  Good catch.

We’re very glad that you drove safely and had a great time.  Keep on plugging and reporting.

Be Safe,
