As an ESL instructor, explaining idioms is always a challenge.  I’ve taught units on idioms before, and the “itchy feet” one always gets loads of scrunched up faces.  😂  Anyway, I’m going on hols in two weeks, and I’m pretty pumped to get my travel on.  I’m due for an adventure. 😝

The weather is gorge right now.  I’m excited to have a productive morning, since I logged into Soundcloud, and the first thing in my stream was Bankbeats.  😍

Kiki Lives…

Barely.  I’m tired, crazy, awake, stressed, happy, non-stop on the go, hungry, everything.  This semester is going to be extra cray.  There’s a beautiful, spectacular light at the end of the tunnel and it’s called graduation so all this better be bloody well worth it!! 😉

No real time to write.  The fliers speak for themselves.

I’m guesting on Stunna’s Bassdrive The Greenroom show Wed Jan. 30.  Tune in.  www.bassdrive.com

Then I’m playing at Smart Bar.  If you love deep, liquidy, dnb then this night is seriously not to be missed.  Hope to see you there.

Backpacks, Highlighters & Kiki

Hello!

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. 🙂

Tunes:
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.

Today’s Oldie:
Chase & StatusTake Me AwayRam 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!

I love SirReal mixes.  They are really good workout mixes to zone out to on the treadmill.

The Girl Who Avoided The Snow Storm

That was Lake Shore Drive.  Eek.

Sorry for the lack of posts last week.  The snow storm was quite strange.  All that snow was crazy!  I was ridiculously fortunate though.  The wind was so intense it was blowing into these huge drift piles.  I went to go brave the snow and dig my car out the next day and there wasn’t a drop of snow on my car.  LOL.  Seriously.  Spotless.  It had blown on to the other side of the street and the cars on the other side of the street were fucked.  Someone was on my side that day I guess.

I’ve been holed up at my place studying and working but I did make time to watch The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and was instantly hooked.  I watched  Stieg Larsson’s whole trilogy this weekend.  Noomi Rapace is fierce as Lisbeth Salander.  I hope the American version doesn’t suck.  Watch it if you have time.  Violent and a very graphic at times but still worth watching.  5 stars. 😉

I’ve been listening to a lot of Bassdrive at the gym these days.  I love that there is a radio station where I can just tune in and get my fix whenever I can’t find any mixes to download. ❤

Today’s Oldie:
Stakka & Skynet feat. Konflict Bios-FearUnderfire 2001
Sick tune!  Love this one.
