Spanners & Kiki

I’m not going to get too in to it, but people derailing your grieving process sucks. I’m just taking everything in stride. My dad has been gone for 1 year and there are still people taking actions that hinder me from getting closure. It’s definitely not fun. I’ve moved on from crying because I’m sad to crying because I’m angry. Is that growth? 🙃

My new position at work has me back to working 8 hour days. I’m enjoying it, but I’m trying to get used to working at home 8 hours a day. When we first went to WFH, I was furloughed and only teaching part time in the evening. I spent my days as I pleased and had more than enough time to prep for my evening classes. Now I’m back in grad school and working from home full time. I fully understand that others have been trying to find this balance for the last 2 years. I’m new to the game though, so my time management definitely needs a little tweaking. I’m working on it.

I’m listening to old old old old old Andy C mixes. It’s funny to be doing serious work and be sitting at my desk full on raving with the volume at 100% at 10 am.

This came on and it made me really happy. This tune is 22 years old. 😲


Early Morning Brockout

It’s 4:32 am.  If you know me pretty well, you know I am a terrible sleeper.   There’s no use griping about it so I’lI have a solo brock out instead.

This morning I woke up with this intro looping in my head and I must say, in my world, this probably means I’m going to have an awesome day. 😛


Happy Birf DnB & Kiki!

It’s my blog bday.  Woot.  3 years!  I know I’ve had to scale back because of my schedule but I still love sharing my dnb likes and dislikes with all of you. ❤

Spring Break Kiki

So much for Spring Break. I have a ton of work to do. 😦

Wish I was going to Miami with my dnb peeps and enjoying some sun and good music.  Have fun without me!!

Lots of good stuff out still.  I keep listening to all these mixes while I study and am geeked about all the good tunes.

I can’t believe I hadn’t posted this one.  It’s one of my faves from the Wormhole album.  (That’s not really saying much cuz I pretty much love every track on that album. )  I just got reminded of it listening to that Renegade Hardware History Session mix.

Jungle Rave Kiki

I’ve been listening to this song a lot lately.  The tune is ok.  Not really my type.  But then it breaks down into this wicked jungle rave at the end and I’m obsessed.  It totally takes me back to my raving days of yore.  I think I keep reflecting back to that time cuz I’m so busy right now and I would long for those days where all I would do was brock out to some rowdy jump up and hug the speakers.  Fast forward to about 3:20 and everyone starts raving.  I have the actual mp3 and it’s a full on minute of lovely dnb rowdiness.  Love it. 🙂

Back to my homework. 😦

I’m really digging these Renegade Hardware History Sessions.  Totally brings me back to what made me fall in love with dnb in the first place.  I totally owned this Renegade Hardware tape pack that this mix is from.  I’m glad I now have the mp3 of it.  Win.

Bromantic Kiki

I would ask one of my friends to come to the old Lava dnb nights with me quite frequently and he would always say “is it gonna be all dudes in there again?”  LOL  The truth is yes.  Dnb is always ultra bromantic and it’s just something that you get used to.  Today I was listening to Lenzman’s Flamethrower as I was working out and the dj had thrown some Kemo over it and it just sounded like such a dude track and it made me think of how most dnb events are usually packed with men… oh and please spare me the comments about me being sexist.  I’m fully aware of the fact that lots of women like this tune.  I was just saying that the sound of it at the time with Kemo rhyming over it immediately conjured up the image of a bunch of dnb dudes in a club getting their steady screwface head nod going. 🙂

Can we talk about how much I like this tune?  I keep hearing it on a bunch of mixes.  It makes me want dance every time I hear it.

Weekend Shenanigans Kiki

Considering the fact that I did nothing of importance this week, I’m surprised at how fast the week went.  I anxiously await fridays because the weekends means that my friends can hang out with me and I don’t have to create activities to fill up my day. 🙂
