I feel like the past couple of weeks have been a blur. I finished my first session of summer school, got an A in the class. Woot. Had a pretty awesome July 4. Went home to Madison and got to hang out with my bro and my nephew who I hadn’t seen in a year. Got my dance on toDerrick CarteratWestFestthis past weekend. All in all, I can’t really complain. Summer is in full effect and it’s hot as fuck. Still don’t really have time to breathe but I’m trudging along. xoxo
Tunes: Seba – Nightrider Love this tune. Love Seba always. Can’t figure out if the tune is old and only get released now or actually new, anyways, it’s still dope. 🙂
These past couple of weeks have been a blur. I’ve been studying non-stop and working like crazy. I was in extra nerd mode because I was leaving for my trip and wanted to make sure that when I got back I wasn’t behind. Sorry I’ve been neglecting you. 😦
I’m in LA right now. Came to support my good friend George for his art opening and visit with one of my dearest and most treasured buddies Mollie. They are both Minneapolis transplants and the best part is that some of my other Minneapolis besties came too, so it’s a fun group mini holiday. I only wish the weather was a bit better. It’s at least sunny though and that’s good.
I’m being very blogger like and blogging from a trendy breakfast place with free wifi off of Sunset Blvd. 🙂
TonightStunnahappens to also be here so I’m going to go see him and Bachelors of Science. Woot. If you are in LA you should totally come check it out.
I’ve caught up on so many mixes lately and there are some really wicked tracks floating around. I know it was a while ago but dang thatSeba NLDNB Podcast 2is fire. I love every track on there. I also happen to love Seba so it’s a win/win situation. I could go on and list all the mixes I’ve been listening to but I’ll spare you. Just because I’m catching up on a month’s worth of mixes doesn’t mean you have to as well.
p.s. I’d like to repost my usual disclaimer. I know that some of these tracks I might talk about might be a bajillion years old but like I’ve said before, they are new to me. I don’t claim to be an industry reviewer or what not. I just talk about ish I like and if you like it too, cool. 🙂

I ended up not having to work on saturday which was awesome cuz I really needed a day just to relax.
I did a bunch of cleaning this weekend and caught up on all the mixes that I hadn’t had a chance to listen to. There’s some awesome tracks out right now. I actually have a bunch of tracks that I would like to spend money on and that hasn’t happened in a long time. 🙂

I’ve been listening to a lot of really great mixes lately. It makes me crave going to an awesome dnb night. I’m too old to go to raves. I feel really uncomfortable hanging out with 17 year olds… and I should! LOL. They are 17!
I really just miss our dnb nights in bars. All I really want to do is sit in a bar with my friends and listen to some good dnb.
Before people start bombarding me with responses about where there’s all these good nights in the city blah blah, I work. I’m not trying to go see you mix at 3am and I don’t want to always have to go to Smart Bar. I’m talking about the cute nights we use to have all over the city in nice intimate bars. I’m about to be 34 on sunday so I think I’m allowed to be as picky as I want about where I want to go listen to my music. 🙂

I have 3 days off in a row. Woot. Yesterday was a me day. I didn’t write, I just pampered myself and took care of my allergies and just chilled the fuck out. Today I’ve been running non stop errands. One of those errands you’ll be happy to know is picking up my new computer. Holla. I’m happy that I have that old one as a back but damn is it slow. Anyways no use dwelling in the past. I have a brand new laptop and I get to be back in internet land again. Yay.
10 more days and World Cup is over. I’ll be both happy and sad. I’ll miss my new World Cup buddies and being able to watch football pretty much everyday. I won’t miss the nonstop working. People need to have a break every once in a while. It’s not good to go on 9 day, 8 day, 6 day working streaks. It tires a person out.
My allergies are clearing up. I finally gave in and bought the Claritin D. I knew I needed to take it but I just feel so hopped up when I do. It’s too strong. Whatever. I was so miserable that I just decided being hopped up for a couple of days wouldn’t be better than how horrible I’ve felt for the past 5 days.
I’ve been listening to so many mixes and have heard so many new tunes that I can’t even keep up. I hope I remember them all. It’s times like this that I miss my desk at my old job cuz I could always refer to my trusty chicken scratch post its. I just keep having to make a mental note as I’m listening to a mix while working out or while walking to work. Sometimes I remember…. most of the time I don’t. 🙂
It’s July 4th this weekend. I have no plans. I’ve noticed that lately as the years pass, I keep doing less and less on this holiday. For some reason I seem to get left behind and my friends all go out of town. LOL. I’ll be working at night on the 4th but if anyone knows of any bbq’s during the day lemme know. I will gladly come eat your hamburgers. 😉
Oh and btw, if you didn’t listen to that Dj Fu mix, you’re missing out. Really good stuff.
Tunes: All Thieves – Stars: Zero T Remix (track is in player)
Been meaning to post this for a while. This remix is so sick. Everything about it just sounds wonderful. Loves it.
Remember what a fun game that was when you were a kid? You could play lets pretend for hours! I’m pretending today by making up activities to do so I don’t get stuck in my house. *shrugs* The main thing is that it gets me out of my house… we’ll worry about the delusional state of mind later. 😉

Maybe I just needed a week to be lazy. 😉 I have a new approach to this week and I’m excited about it. No more slacking. I don’t think the slothy attitude type is becoming at all.
I have had an awesome weekend. My Oliver Twist bank account status has made my friends take pity on me and treat me to some really yummy meals. I got to spend time with Kathy and her bf Matt as well as my friend Jon and just partake in some really fun activities.
The Dj Rap show was fine. I had a good set but there wasn’t really that many people there. The important part was the people that mattered were there so that was fine. I have good buddies and that makes me happy. 🙂
I’m kinda excited about this week. Kathy’s visiting from London so I’m hanging out with her tomorrow and then I go to Minneapolis on thursday. It’s nice to break up the monotony.
Had a pretty nice weekend. Got to hang out with Mike yesterday as he was in town for a hot minute. Mixed a lot of 2step/Garage. I know my dnb records like the back of my hand but my 2step records I don’t necessarily mix on a regular basis anymore so I’ve been spending the time re-familiarizing myself with the tracks to get ready for the Steppers Alliance reunion this weekend. I’ve even found some gems that I didn’t even know I owned. Woot.

I actually had a really lovely weekend. Friday I just went out with Jessica and enjoyed some good girls night out company. Saturday me and Daniela went to Gianna’s rooftop party for her non-profit, For The Mamas. It’s an organization to help women battling cancer. I had a really good time. You can’t really beat loud music and drinks outside also it’s nice to help contribute to good causes. My weekend was mostly awesome because of the company I kept and you can’t really ask for more than that.
