Kiki Likes To Eat

Going out to dinner with my dnb besties today.  I’m milking the bday events as much as I can.  Lao Sze Chuan here we come. 🙂

My cousin Nima is coming from London tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited.  She is awesome.

Sze Chuan Kiki

One thing I like about Mike being in town is we always go out for good eats.  Yesterday I had the best Chinese food I’ve ever had.  Lao Sze Chuan in Chinatown is awesome.  So many options.  The menu is huge.  There are things on there that I have never even heard of before.  All the food was non greasy and really flavourful.  I will definitely go there again.

When I was in college I used to be best friends with this Chinese girl and her parents owned a Chinese restaurant in South Dakota where she was from.  I went home with her once and eating at their restaurant was wonderful.  When we ate dinner they made absolutely nothing that was actually on their menu.  There were all these entrees that I’d never seen and they were so full of great seasonings and yummy.  I guess it’s easier to keep the Americanized versions for us and keep the good good ish for themselves. 😉

Leaving tomorrow.  I will try and write while I go on my two week excursion but can’t promise that I’ll actually get to.  I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday!  Safe travels if you are going anywhere and just enjoy spending time with the people you care about.  I plan to. 🙂

Tunes:
Simplification feat. Command StrangeMelody (track is in Simplification player)
Loving the flow of this one.  I love tracks where you can just get lost in the head nod.

Wobble Kiki

Last night was awesome.  I went to go see Caspa at Smart Bar.  I can’t believe how many times I’ve been to Smart Bar this month.  It’s usually a place I don’t go to too often cuz I hate driving there and I’m not really on the electronic club tip that much these days .  I’ve seen some great shows there the past month though.  Caspa was def. my favourite one.  It’s so lovely when the room is just filled with enthusiastic people who are just as excited about the music as you are.  Last night was really packed.  Whoa-B and Timid had awesome sets.  Caspa murdered it.  The crowd just ate him up.  They knew all his tracks,  freaked out at the right times, danced a ton and even sang back lyrics really loudly?  I know.  I was in awe too.  LOL.  Made for a really great night.  I didn’t even feel like I was in Chicago cuz it seemed like there was, dare I say, a healthy scene that wasn’t just house music.  I had a blast. 🙂

The record organising continues.  Thankfully I can say that I do actually see an end in sight soon.  Yay.

I have been digging this tune ever since I heard it on Soultec’s July Studio mix.  I couldn’t find the artists cuz it was spelled wrong in the tracklist.  Thanks to Dvus and the Bassdrive Chat posse for filling me in.  Love it.  Big up Japan.

I wish I lived in the pic.  It just seems like it would be a really peaceful existence.  Daydreaming at work at 9 am… what a cliche?  Whatever, the best part about  3 day weekends is the week goes by fast, right? 😉

This track was on that Stunna mix I posted yesterday.  I’m digging The Square and Eros vibe.  I pretty much like all their tracks.

Jetset Kiki

flight-of-the-conchords1

I don’t mind the cold as much when there’s good tv to watch.  Flight of The Conchords season 2 just started and Bret, Jemaine and Murray are back to their old tricks.  Murray is definitely my favourite.  This show is hilarious.  Lovesit!

Small Bar was fun last night.  I got tired real quick though.  I feel like I’ve been running around a lot lately.  I keep saying I will just chill at the house but it doesnt actually end up happening.  I’ll work on it.  🙂

Tunes:
Horizons Music PresentsInternal Affairs Vol. 1
Lovin all these tracks on this LP especially Bachelors of Science – The Beautiful Life and also that Naibu remix I wrote about the other day is on there and Mutt’s -Open Wide.  Just ordered it.  Awesome.

Today’s Oldie:
CommixHung UpLiquid V 2004
Not as old of an oldie today, but I was thinking of it this morning so I figured why not?  Lovely track.  I love Commix and this is definitely one of my faves.  A lot of really great liquid came out in 2004.
