Back 2 School Kiki?

It’s funny that when you hit a slump it takes a while for you to realise that you’re there.  I’ve been back for almost a month now and it was just yesterday that I realised that I’m over it.  I’ve been enjoying my time back and try to avoid the whole unemployment problem but the situation is still the same and it needs to be fixed.  The jobs don’t seem to be coming.  The prospects seem promising and then they fall through.  I would love to go back to school but I was stressing about the whole getting into more student loan debt thing.  At this point I don’t know really know what my options are, I just know that I can’t keep doing what I have been doing…  This also may be just my winter blues and I might not feel the same way once the sun starts coming out to play.  I still have to at least make an attempt to fix the problem though cuz I hate being depressed.  It’s so not fun. :/

Today’s Oldie:
Robert HoodMuseumAxis 1994
I’m very well aware that this is a techno track.  I was having a very techno day yesterday and didn’t really listen to much dnb.  This is my fave Rob Hood track.  I really like techno and I wish I was more familiar with the Chicago scene to frequent their events but it’s no biggie.  I don’t go out that much as it is so I can’t really say that I would go to the shows anyways.  LOL.  I still download the odd mix here and there and go to the odd event if Daniela reminds me and that seems enough for now.  This track is old and still so awesome. 🙂

Hibernation Kiki

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.

Glowstick Kiki

I frequently think about how strange it is that I rave out to dnb at 5 a.m.

This morning’s gym selections were Stunna & Submorphics’ WMC mix (sorry I don’t have a link for this one) and Alegria’s Influenza mix.  I worked out to Alegria but listened to S & S in my car on the drive there.  I actually stayed in my car after I parked to listen to S & S because the mix was almost over and I wanted to hear the end, even though I’ve listened to it numerous times before.  It’s just a really good mix and I was totally in the zone.  I totally got that feeling after you would get home from a rave and it would be ass crack o clock.

I think one of my fondest memories is after one of the times I saw Andy C.  It was back in ’99.  The rave was called Mental and it was at the Roy Wilkins in St. Paul, MN.  I left the auditorium at 8 a.m. was pretty much deaf cuz the sound was insane and couldn’t have been more content to go to bed yet I was definitely on cloud nine from all the good music I had heard that night.  I’m feeling a little nostalgic this morning I guess.  😉

Tunes:
Brother – Dig Deep (track is in player)
I’ve liked this one for a while.  Paul SG played it on his show recently and it reminded me how much I liked it.

Today’s Oldie:
Shimon & Andy CMind KillerRam Records 2001
Might as well have another Andy C oldie right?  He’s coming to Smart Bar on the 17th.  Stunna is playing so I’ll prolly go.  To be honest though I’m more a fan of Andy C of yesteryear not necessarily of the Andy C of today. *shrugs*  This oldie is another of my faves for sure.  It was the track that I played the most on this Ram Raiders Part 3 release.  I’ve said it before, I really like the tracks that Andy C and Shimon make together.  🙂

Early A.M. Kiki

It’s  really early.  I’ve been an early riser for as long as I can remember but still it never stops being strange that I’m awake kicking it when everyone else is completely passed out.  My gym is open 24 hours so I think I’m gonna head over there once I finish this post.

I don’t really have anything exciting to talk about this week.  It’s a pretty slow week.  I’m definitely feeling the unemployment factor right now because I’ve been working with my friend for the past couple of weeks so my idle time has been pretty much non-existent.  This week he’s out of town though and I’ve had to keep myself busy.  There are activities to do but they are activities of my own creation, so that makes the “I really have nothing to do factor” quite high.

Cough Suppressant Kiki

So I must admit I’ve been pretty poorly for the past week.  My allergies manifested themselves into this horrid cold and I’ve just been surviving.  Now it’s almost all gone apart from this nasty cough.  I guess I’m not taking the right medicine cuz this ish is not going anywhere.  I bought some theraflu so hopefully that helps.

If you’re in Chicago tonight go check out Raiden at Smart Bar.  Woot.

Tunes:
Paul SG – Living in the Past (track is in player)
I even annoy myself with how much I keep gushing about Paul SG.  I just dig his vibe.  He’s my current obsession so I guess you’ll just have to ride this one out like you do all the other ones. 😉

Today’s Oldie:
Ed Rush & OpticalFunktionV Recordings 1998
I find it very strange that I haven’t put this as an oldie yet.  I prolly was avoiding putting the obvious ones and just forgot.  I have a list of all the oldies that I have posted so I don’t repeat and I looked on it and was like huh?  This is definitely one of my fave Ed Rush & Optical tunes.  Lovesit.

My buddy Hwilde informed me that the Nymfo mix I posted yesterday is ridden with emcee loudness.  Boo.  I apologise.  I didn’t listen to it.  I just posted it.  I told you I’m behind on listening. :”(

Here’s Bassdrive’s own Methodus with a summer treat.  Should be a good listen.

Pollen Kiki

So fine, whatever, I’ve come to terms with it, I’m a full blown allergy haver and that shit is not fucking fun.  I’m a sneezing maniac, my throat hurts, my eyes itch, and my nose won’t stop running.  Is that cute?  Absolutely not.  I’ve been   trying to be a trooper and not whine but it’s 4:55 am and I can’t breathe and I’m bloody miserable.

Moving on, it is the weekend, though for an unemployed person that shouldn’t really mean that much since I kinda don’t have a schedule but it does mean that others will be able to hang out with me so at least there will be fun things to do.

It’s Juju’s bday tomorrow.  Yay.
