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. 😉

Weekend Fun

It’s friday and I’m excited that there are again fun things to do.  The one thing that has been keeping me sane from the lack of working is that I’ve actually had the opportunity to take part in some fun activities since I got back.  Hopefully this keeps up until it’s nice outside again and I won’t have to worry about being trapped in my flat when there’s nothing to do.

Rap Attack Kiki

It’s friday.  Woot.  I’m playing Smart Bar with Dj Rap and Cringer tonight so if you’re in the Chi definitely come out.  I’m on from 12 to 130.  I can’t even tell you the last time I saw Dj Rap.  I swear it was in like 2000.

I’m hoping the weekend gets this lazy bitch behaviour out of my system and I act better next week.

Kathy and her bf Matt are still here and my friend Jon is in town too.  I feel like I’ve had friends visiting non stop lately.  I will say that one of the things that is a perk of unemployment is I get to hang out whenever which is cool.

No real back story.  I just like this one.  To be honest it sounds better in the mix than by itself.  You can play with it alot, ride it out.

I haven’t posted a Stunna mix in a while.  Here’s a little goodie from when he hit up NYC.  All his own original tracks, collabs and remixes… Woot.

Wild Out Wednesday

Well not really, I definitely wouldn’t classify myself as a person who “wilds out.” I’ve just always thought that phrase was funny. The hosts on 106th & Park always sound so amped when they talk about it “What up, what up what up, it’s WILD OUT WEDNESDAY!!!”

I will however be “wildin’ out” to Mutt today though. I feel like my whole day will be Mutt related. LOL. First, he’s playing Bassdrive from 2pm to 5pm cst for a special Greenroom session with Stunna, and Sinistarr so definitely tune in. Then he’s also playing at Seminar tonight.

This wasn’t one of my fave J Majik tracks but I do remember people going nuts on the dancefloor so I figured it would work for today.

Might as well keep up the Greenroom momentum and post an old Stunna & Pipeline sesh from 2007.

Enjoy.

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:

You Suck

I’m sure you are anxiously awaiting to hear how the rescue mission of my car went yesterday. Trust me it wasn’t pretty. 35 Minutes of digging and begging my car to just jump over the ice mounds surrounding it. I was covered in snow and freezing but I did it… and then it snowed last night and is still snowing right now and temperatures dropped. Nice. As I walked by my car this morning on the way to the train and saw it covered once again in mounds of snow, all I could say is “You Suck!” to the snowflakes and go on my merry way. Boo.

I am promising that this will be my last post about the snow… for now. LOL.

MuttIt’s Pouring Once Again
I’m excited Mutt is coming to Seminar. I love his tunes.

Amaning & StunnaJupiter Rising / Landslide (Blame Remix)
The Landslide Blame remix is dope but I feel like I couldn’t go wrong anyways cuz I already really liked the original as it was. I like the Jupiter Rising too.

Today’s Oldie:
Dj Marky & XRSLKV Recordings 2002
I’m still impatient as far as waiting for tracks to come out, but thank god they take a lot less time than they used to. I waited for this record for 2 years. Bryan G played in Minneapolis this one time and played the most amazing set. I couldnt rememember most of it but I remember when he played this track I knew I wouldn’t forget it. If you know me, you know that I am a horrible track identifier. I always get names wrong, I can’t mimic the sounds for shit. They usually only sound normal to me if I sing them. You get the picture. I asked Bryan about it and fortunately he knew what I was talking about cuz he said that LK was such a big tune that everyone always asked about it. And then I just basically waited for it to come out, and waited, and waited, and waited. A year later I came across a Hospital mix that had it on there and I just played that mix over and over and over. Finally when it came out on vinyl I was just happy to own it but of course barely played it cuz I was sick of hearing it by then. 😉 Summer anthem for sure. Loves it.

Granny Kiki

So I totally jacked up my shit. I slipped and fell in the shower this morning. Am I 80 years old? I think I was just lazily standing under the water. I was taking a shower at 4:30 a.m. so that might have something to do with my cracked-outness. My knee is all jankified and my cheek is bruised. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s black and blue by tomorrow. Great look for bday party photos. Whatever, that shit hurt.

Have you listened to that Hayze Influenza Media Podcast? Awesome. I’ve been listening to it for the past two days.

Spherique – Falling Leaves Russia is seriously on fire these days. I am digging all the producers I’m hearing from there. Love this track. So so pretty! I imagine lying in a forest during Autumn in a hammock. Have you ever asked yourself why I’m always imagining being anywhere but where I really am?? LOL. Track is in the player.

Mutt has an LP out on Inside Recordings. Love it. Really good tracks. I’m especially digging Rumours and Big Lights, Big City. Awesome Style Wars sample in Big Lights, Big City.

Mutt Presents – Treading Water LP

EvesonTricks Another Brandy sample. She is dnb sample gold. Nice track.

Today’s Oldie: Usual SuspectsDoorwayRenegade Hardware 1999 Where are the Usual Suspects??? I loved their stuff. This track is such a good set starter. Eerie and organic yet a deep roller. Love it!
