Hamburglar Kiki

If you haven’t listened to Random Movement’s podcast #9 you are seriously missing out.  It’s really great.  I had a good workout to it this morning.

It’s my buddy Submorphics bday today.  We’re going to go eat at Kuma’s.  I’ve never been there before.  I’m not overly obsessed with burgers that’s prolly why.  Everyone says they are the best, I guess I’ll find out today if that’s true. 😉

Happy Bday Greg!!!

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. 🙂

Mellow Kiki

I’m excited for the weekend.  I feel like I have fun activities in store.  Fun by my definition anyways.

It’s Jessica’s bday on sunday but we’re celebrating tonight.  We’re gonna be lowkey and just have a nice meal and kick it grownz up style.

Tomorrow I’m gonna go see Madeleine’s new digs as she has moved to my neck of the woods, not down the street but definitely closer than Pilsen.

Then sunday me and Caroline are going to Bed Bath and Beyond to give our bathroom a makeover.

Yes, like I said before, these things are exciting to me and me alone.  LOL.  Caroline moving in has given me the push I needed to inject new life into my flat.  I’ve been meaning to do it for ages but really just never did it.  Sometimes I need some drastic change to happen to motivate me to get a move on.

Un-“organized” Kiki

I had a pretty fun weekend.  I love it when there’s loads of activities to do.

Got my hip hop/rap fix and saw Dj Revolution on saturday.  He is awesome.

In “No One Cares What You Think Kiki” news,  I just want to say that I do not like SpectraSoul’s Organizer.  It’s no secret that I’m actually a big Spectrasoul fan, it’s just that I’m just sick of hearing that track on every mix and I don’t think it’s dope at all.

Hmmm…

There are some days where you just don’t really know what’s going on.  Know what I mean?  You ponder things, you wonder how things are going to pan out, you really just don’t have a grasp on it and it’s not really that bothersome, it just peaks your curiosity even more.  I’m having one of those today.

On that note, in dedication to my post title I figured I would post the link to that horrific video by C & C Music Factory.

B-keyCapacitorXXX 2000
When I first started to learn to mix, understanding the beatmatching concept was not my problem.  I kinda already got that concept.  I’m good at math so it just made sense.  My big problem was understanding how to use the equipment.  It took me a while to get comfortable with all the things you could do with the mixer.  For the longest time I just blended.  No tricks. Nothing.  Then I went through the phase where I understood how the phono/line button could be used in your mix and I’m sure everyone cursed the day I learned that.  Every mix I just went nuts.  This B-key was one of my favourites cuz it’s a really fun track to play with the phono/line button.  All the elements are awesome and just make the blend that more interesting.  Lovesit!  Awesome noisy business.

Lekke! I’ve missed you.  I’ve always enjoyed his mixes, they are just nice to listen to.  I found this one on Doddi’s Blog.  I’m gonna listen right now.

Slumdog Kiki

I watched Slumdog Millionaire last night.  If you’re looking for something to watch definitely see this.  I am a big fan of that British show Skins and Anwar was one of my favourite characters so it was nice to see Dev Patel in this movie.  The little boy that played the younger version of Dev’s character was absolutely adorable.  Awesome movie.

More snow.  Boo.  I told you I bought a shovel for my car so I guess I am more or less prepared to dig my car out at all times, doesn’t mean I’m happy about it though.  😉

Liquid Lovin

I actually had a really good weekend. I’ve been really bored with my life lately. Shit just becomes too stagnant when you do the same things over and over again. I haven’t been frequenting Lava as much. I haven’t been kicking it with the usual suspects at the usual places. It was nice to just change stuff up. I hung out with different people and just didn’t do the same things I always do. It was really refreshing.

I went to see Stepbrothers. I admit that Will Ferrell can get annoying but I thought this movie was really funny. I think my expectations were really low and therefore I enjoyed it even more, but for what it was it was ridiculously funny. I laughed the entire time. As long as you don’t go into something pretending it something else you’re usually not going to be disappointed.

I was pretty busy this weekend and didn’t have time to go to the apple store, hence, I’m still ipod less. I rode my bike today, so no one harassed me on the train. I’m excited to get back into my ipod world but at the same time I’ve unfortunately gotten used to the mundane ipodless world.

Saw this new Commercial Suicide release that I’m kinda digging. Chris SU, Stress Level and Ant TC1, you can’t really go wrong there. I haven’t really bought anything by Stress Level and Ant TC1 over the past year, so I’m happy to see something I actually like.

Chris SU & Ant TC1 / Chris Su, Ant TC1 & Stress Level – The Vendetta / Final Cut

The other day in the Bassdrive chat room, people were complaining about Chemical Records. I was so shocked. They were talking about not receiving records and people being rude. It’s weird when a place doesn’t have consistent service. I feel like it’s important to have uniform service. Not to be a consumer nerd but dang, if you don’t make sure your employees treat people all the same way, it’s a sure fire way to lose business. I’ve never had any problems with them. I’ve always had perfect service. My records arrive in a ridiculous record amount of time. All their employees have been nothing but exemplary to me. Crazy that others would have the complete opposite experience. Chemical should really sort that out!

I don’t usually like to post sendspace mixes cuz I like my downloading experience to be a one click operation but this Dj Clart and Simplification mix looks wicked so I guess i’ll concede for today. 🙂
