I had a pretty nice weekend. The cold is settling and I’m starting to feel the hibernation mode kicking in. I’m starting to get excited about my trips coming up this year, Minneapolis, New Jersey, New York and London. Being unemployed gives me ample amount of time so if I have the money I have no excuse but to dip out.

Well I guess Theraflu was the cure all. I actually feel physically better. The cough is still there but at least I don’t feel like I’m dying. Woot.
Raiden last night, woohoo. There wasn’t really anyone there but his set was fire. Awesome. I’m definitely digging his style these days.
How is it friday? Unemployment just blurs my days together and since I don’t really have anywhere to be, ever, I just kinda float through the week. LOL.
The 48 hour film contest is this weekend. Tonight I meet with the other screenwriters and we write the script. Should be fun.

I’ve been listening to that Blame on Charge Recordings that I posted about recently, Stay Forever. I feel like it’s a good way to start your morning.
Speaking of Charge, can we talk about how much I used to love “Feel Good?” Those were the good old days. I don’t really listen to much of Mampi’s stuff anymore though. You’ll have to get me to tell you the story one time of driving back from a crazy outdoor rave with him and R Notorious J and Skibba with Mampi driving my roomates car… Priceless.
Anyways, moving on. I was thinking about how most pretty vocal dnb tracks have super sappy lyrics. High Contrast’s - Eternal Optimist is one of my personal faves. I think that song is so pretty. I think the girly pretty nature of most liquid funk tracks is why some people tend to hate on it so much. *shrugs*
If you were to look at my music history, the back catalogue definitely shows that I would invest in sappy dnb songs in the future. I used to listen to a lot of sappy R&B songs. I probably still would if I actually listened to the radio or watched videos but since dnb and dubstep take up most of my time I don’t know any new mainstream R&B artists. Word on the street is that they’re rubbish anyways. Bummer.
I remember being twelve and getting ready to move to America and having to leave this boy who i had just started making out with. Of course being twelve, I was convinced my life was over since I didn’t want to move to America in the first place. I listened to Karyn White’s Superwoman over and over and over (see this caning tracks to death thing isn’t new to me) to assuage my discontent with the move. Pretty dnb does the same thing for me now. Not necessarily in assuaging making out with boys but appeasing my occasional discontent with life in general.
Stunna’s my main man when it comes to pretty dnb mixes. He switches it up every now and again but I’ve got a ton of old mixes to keep me happy. For those of you that live in Chicago he’ll being playing with Pipeline at Seminar tonight so you should stop by.
Here’s a little old jam loveliness to keep you busy.
