That’s how you say goodbye in Indonesian. My Chicago days are ending. 8 more days and I blow this popsicle stand. I’m both excited and sad. I love Chicago to pieces. I’ve enjoyed every minute of the past 11 years that I have lived here.
I’m going to Indonesia to teach for the summer. I have never been to Indonesia before and I’m really looking forward to it. I plan on starting a tumblr when I get there.
I honestly don’t know what to do with this blog. I think it’s definitely time to hang up my hat. I still look for dnb mixes and tracks every day but I guess my adult life has gotten in the way and I don’t have time to blog about it and share my internet dnb traipsing with you anymore. It’s something I do really quickly before I leave the house so I can have something to listen to on my ipod at the gym or something to listen to as I do my homework. Deleting seems so final though and that’s why I’m hesitant.
On another note, today is my blog’s bday.

Hi. Countdown to Bye Bye Chicago has officially began. I’ve got 8 weeks to finish my thesis, somehow pass my last 3 classes, and not die of sleep deprivation. I see no one unless you work at my job. It’s all worth it, I’m sure, but for now I’m pretty much consistently on the verge of a nervous breakdown. LOL.
I was awake freaking out one night and was so happy to find that Fabric had posted Calibre’s mix. It was like I took a valium and had 30 minutes of reprieve. LMAO.
Heart you Calibre.

Alix Perez feat. Peven Everett & Spectrasoul - Forsaken – Shogun Audio
Not really old enough to be an oldie but my friend Melissa reminded me of this one the other day and so I had to post it. I played this to death… I mean like ridiculously. I totally had an obsession with Alix Perez back then. I was all about ominously, sultry, sexy, liquidy dnb at that time. All you needed was some dark melody, sexy vocals and some dark bass and I would buy it. LOL.
There’s only 4 weeks of school left and I’m spending pretty much all my time with my head buried in books, staring at a computer screen and not sleeping. December 10th come quick yo.
Pennygiles you rock my world. Listened to this mix while doing my homework the other day and it’s awesome. Hearts all around.

This Halloween is a sad one as I’m going to a funeral to say goodbye to a kindred spirit. My friend Reggie was hit by a drunk driver and killed. Wonderful person. Always smiling. Gone to soon. Rest in peace dear friend. You will not be forgotten.
Feeling these pretty melodies at the mo.

Oh man. My life is kinda hectic. I wish I was as calm as that headless chicken in that pic above. I just chose this pic cuz I thought it was funny. The chaos is the result of all good changes happening but I’m just a bit pressed for time so it’s a wee bit stressful. I’ll fill you in later.
I have been on an old skool jungle kick all day. I went to Internet Rave Archive and just listened to mixtape after mixtape. It was a good afternoon. Great homework music.
I don’t really have any tunes to highlight today. I’ve been listening to a lot of mixes but nothing has really been standing out to me. I can tell you though that I’ve developed a mayjaaah obsession with Roy Green & Protone. Really digging their stuff.
This one is seriously dope. Such a goodie. <3
Hired Gun – Dem Gun Mad (Pow Pow) – Jungle From Kniteforce 1994
School started once again. This is my last year. May will be here before you know it and I will have my masters! Woot woot. I’m excited for the next chapter of my life to begin.
There’s a lot of things going on with me these days but I actually don’t really feel like writing about it. All good things so don’t worry. Today I just got the urge to find the time to post some tunes I’ve been hearing and liked so let’s get on with it.
Calyx & Teebee – Elevate This Sound – Ram Records
I heard this and was speechless when Danny LO told me it was a Ram record. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I bought anything on Ram. It’s definitely been a minute. Quality tune. I just picked it up the other day.
Dj Chap – Don’t Wait For Me – Liquid V
I have had an obsession with Dj Chap ever since I heard “invisible” on a Random Movement podcast. Love his productions.
Chase & Status – Take Me Away – Ram Records 2008
I was curious when the last time was that I had actually bought something on Ram so I looked up their discography and voila it was this Chase and Status tune. LOL. A tune I was ridiculously obsessed with. I remember sitting at my law office job tuned in to Bassdrive for hours on end and being mighty pleased every time I would hear it played.
I don’t have access to be my chicken scratch memo pad notes on what tracks I want to share cuz I’m in the computer lab at school but I did remember those two tracks for now and since I haven’t written in a bajillion years I figured this post would be a good start. I think that I might have more time to post this semester because I’m relieving myself of the burden of having to post long entries. I always feel guilty that I go so long without posting and always want to post really long posts to make up for it. I’m going to make an attempt to be satisfied with just posting a track here and there or a mix whenever I get a free mo so hopefully that will get me in the habit of posting more. We’ll see. I promise you I really will try though!
