Wash, Rinse and Repeat Kiki

I won’t talk about school for long cuz that’s all I talk about these days.  Basically this semester is really hard and I’m trapped in a study/work cycle.  Boo.

Looking forward to seeing LTJ on the 16th and SPY on the 22nd.  I have to plan my let loose days way way way in advance.  LOL.

I’ll post more deets on those two shows as we get closer to the event dates.

Tunes:
CalibreForeign Bodies
Been waiting for a sample of this for ages now.  I know it’s just a podcast rip but you can hear it nonetheless.  I heard it on a Marky mix a while back and just loved it.  I can’t wait to hear it on a loud sound system.  Some serious bass there.

Intelligent MannersStill
So good!  I love tunes like this.  I actually really like all the songs on his Everybody Knows EP.  Nice one.

Mob TacticsThe Machai
Nice rowdy tune.  See I don’t only listen to pretty stuff.  😉

Flaco – Gonna Take Time
Love it!  I heard this on that Makoto Human Elements 5th Anniversary Mix and meant to post it then but totally forgot.  Wicked.

Studious Kiki

It feels so much better when one is busy.  Good busy.

In my past year of unemployment, that is what has caused me the most depression.  It’s just not fun to feel useless.

I have Joia again today.  Her dad will be back this weekend I think.

My biggest problem right now is that one of the programs I’m applying to requires a writing sample, like a research paper of sorts…  Hmmm.  Nope.  My programs that I studied second time around at school were very creative:  screenwriting, sitcom writing, sketch comedy writing, public relations marketing plans and the like.  None of that will work for a writing sample and I’m completely screwed.  LOL.  I did have one paper that I wrote for a psychology class and recently threw it out with numerous other piles of crap as I was trying to figure out why I had papers that I had written in primary school in London still in my room.  I just purged numerous nonsense piles of rubbish that were creating mayhem in my cabinet.

Anyways, now I have to  spend this week writing some semblance of a writing sample to turn in.  Wish me luck.  This is something I am horibble at.  Hence the reason I went the creative angle in my studies.  I remember when I was in high school my teachers always complaining that I was not allowed to write how I spoke.  That is the only way I know how to write!!  LOL.  APA style was definitely not my friend.  This paper will be very interesting. 😉

Computer Fail Kiki

Ugg.  My computer isn’t working again.  It’s an old laptop so I really can’t complain.  It’s just annoying that’s all.  I really need a new one.  The second I get some money that will be the first thing I buy.  Alas I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to post everyday if it doesn’t get sorted.

Apart from the computer business I actually had a pretty lovely weekend.  Good friends, good times. 🙂

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. 🙂

I’ve been having a really nice time here in Madison.  I really needed to get out of Chicago.  Now I’m milking it though cuz I don’t really want to go back to sitting in my flat reading Craigslist so I’m hiding out.  I’ll come back on tuesday. 😉

Midwest Kiki

I retract yesterday’s statement about hibernation.  It’s lovely outside today!  The high is supposed to be 63…  you know you’re a midwesterner when you rave about how nice the weather is even if the numbers are just in the 60s.

I’m back on a Dan Marshall kick.  I never stopped really being on it, it’s just that now that I’m unemployed I tend to forget to listen to him and Jamo’s show but when I was working I remembered to tune in all day everyday because they came on after Spinn.  I work out to their archives constantly.  Love the show.  Big up Bassdrive.

I have a couple of tunes that I’m coveting.  Unfortunately I don’t know the names and I can’t ask anyone cuz I’m on some straight up “it kinda has that one kick and then goes dun dunn dun tsch” bizness right now.  LOL.  So I’ve decided that I will just hopefully discover the names of these tracks at some point and leave it at that. 🙂

I used to have an unhealthy obsession with Optical.  Like his old skool production drove me insane, in a good way.  I got anything and everything I could of his.  I haven’t listened to this but I’m sure it’s lovely.  I know I can’t listen to liquid funk all the time.  Sometimes you have to switch it up. 😉

500 Days of Kiki

I apologise for my absence on Friday.  I sadly report that I spilled water on my laptop.  I have never darted so fast but alas it didn’t really help.  I should be grateful that it still works though.  It’s been drying for the past 3 days.  The keyboard is shot so I had to get an external one.  Fortunately it’s a wireless one so it’s not as annoying as it could be, but it’s still kind of annoying.

Smart Bar was cool.  I’m so used to playing gigs where me and my friends just sit around and drink so it’s nice to have gigs where people actually dance and they definitely do that at Smart Bar.  Not quite sure where these people come from cuz I never see them at Lava for the dnb shows there, but I am still grateful for their enthusiasm and appreciate their dancing. 🙂

I’ve had a pretty lovely weekend.  Sam and Katie are here so I’ve been enjoying really good meals and some good hang out sessions.

Yesterday I went to go see 500 Days of Summer with Melissa and Zora.  CUTE!  Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are my two favourite indie actors so it’s a double pleasure having them both be in the same film and they were adorable.  I loved the movie.  Fun fact:  I found out that the guy that directed the film went to my high school.  Not like oh in 1948 or whatever but like he was in the same year as my older brother and Melissa.  Melissa  knows him. (Melissa and I went to high school together but she was just two years older than me.)  I think as you get older you realise that at some point there’s a good chance that at least one person you went to high school or college with is going to be famous.  There’s at least 5 people that I knew during that period of my life (high school/college) that are famous.  Props to them.

Tunes:
Metrik – Time to Change (track is in player)
I was a huge fan of Stranger (also in player) last year, Spinn turned me on to it.  Metrik’s tunes give me that Video Killed The Radio Star feel.  Don’t ask me why.  LOL.  It’s not a bad thing.  Video Killed the Radio Star was my favourite song when I was like 5 and I still love it to this day.  Big up The Buggles.  Eek… my age is definitely showing!

Geez.  I must have missed you.  I’m all chatty cathy today. 🙂

Today’s Oldie:
Scorpio aka Dj Die & Roni SizeTroubleV Recordings 1997
This tune was one I loved to mix.  It’s definitely not a good stand alone tune but it’s fun to ride out mixes with.  I remember I mixed at a Minneapolis outdoor fest called Cedar Fest one year and it was so ridiculously hot.  It was a horrible gig as they had asked me to mix between the bands but the bands kept doing their sound checks while I was mixing and they were really loud and annoying as it was some weird rock station stage (I was the queen of getting random gigs back then.  LOL.) and it was like 95 degrees out and the tables were set up directly in the sun and my records were warping as I was mixing.  I kid you not.  I remember being annoyed that I had put my records in such hot heat for people that couldn’t even hear my set anyways.  This record suffered the most.  I turned it into an ashtray for the apartment as the warping was so bad I couldn’t even play it anymore.

Fresh To Def

I think it would be really funny if I always used the terms that I write in my everyday speech. Most of them are made up mish mashes of terms I think are funny. Other times I just know they sound funny when I say them so I purposely use them. If you know me and you ever hear me use the term Fresh to Def please slap me.

I’m having a pretty good morning. I love those days where you wake up refreshed and ready to attack whatever’s coming at ya. Amit tonight at Seminar. Stop at Lava if you’re in the Chi. I don’t know how I feel about Amit these days. I actually don’t even know any of his new stuff. I just like going out to hear dnb so I’m sure it’ll be a fun night nonetheless.
