Summer Jams

Summer is coming to an end.  School has started.  I’m sitting in the office grading summer vacation journals.  The weather is gorge today.  The window is open and there is a  lovely breeze coming through the window.  I’m listening to this sick Sinistarr remix of Random Movement’s “Dancing Feat” and reading the students’ hilarious journals.

Dude.  This track is everything today.  LOL.   I love when you are in the mood for a song and you just feel like pressing repeat a bunch of times cuz you are vibin’ so hard. 

Hearts to the max.

 

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. 😉

Midwest Kiki

I retract yesterday’s statement about hibernation.  It’s lovely outside today!  The high is supposed to be 63…  you know you’re a midwesterner when you rave about how nice the weather is even if the numbers are just in the 60s.

I’m back on a Dan Marshall kick.  I never stopped really being on it, it’s just that now that I’m unemployed I tend to forget to listen to him and Jamo’s show but when I was working I remembered to tune in all day everyday because they came on after Spinn.  I work out to their archives constantly.  Love the show.  Big up Bassdrive.

I have a couple of tunes that I’m coveting.  Unfortunately I don’t know the names and I can’t ask anyone cuz I’m on some straight up “it kinda has that one kick and then goes dun dunn dun tsch” bizness right now.  LOL.  So I’ve decided that I will just hopefully discover the names of these tracks at some point and leave it at that. 🙂

Tunes:
Jubei – Outcast (track is in player)

SinistarrTwo Tone (track is on Facebook fan page in music section)
Love this one!

Today’s Oldie:
Dj DieNastyFull Cycle Records 1995

I used to have an unhealthy obsession with Optical.  Like his old skool production drove me insane, in a good way.  I got anything and everything I could of his.  I haven’t listened to this but I’m sure it’s lovely.  I know I can’t listen to liquid funk all the time.  Sometimes you have to switch it up. 😉

Dubstep Kiki

So Chicago only comes out for big names I guess.  Andy C was packed last night and everyone was acting like they rave out to dnb on a regular basis.  It was very interesting to watch.  There was definitely a lot of rowdiness in the place.  Stunna killed it. 🙂

Going to see Skream tonight.  I like going to big dubstep shows.  They are fun.  I don’t necessary like going to Smart Bar for 2 days in a row but what’s a girl to do?

Anti-Social Kiki

Yesterday Jessica made fish tacos with mango salsa.  We’re so fancy I can’t even stand it. 😉  Going out doesn’t interest me at all these days.  I would much rather stay at home with some good company, testing out recipes and eating yummy food.

Theraflu Kiki

Well I guess Theraflu was the cure all.  I actually feel physically better.  The cough is still there but at least I don’t feel like I’m dying.  Woot.

Raiden last night, woohoo.  There wasn’t really anyone there but his set was fire.  Awesome.  I’m definitely digging his style these days.

How is it friday?  Unemployment just blurs my days together and since I don’t really have anywhere to be, ever, I just kinda float through the week.  LOL.

The 48 hour film contest is this weekend.  Tonight I meet with the other screenwriters and we write the script.  Should be fun. 🙂

Rainy Season

Isn’t it supposed to rain a bunch in April?  I love the rain.  I would much prefer rain to grey, murky skies.

Went to Wisconsin yesterday to hang out with my mum.  I like hanging out with my mum.  It’s fun to become and adult and actually enjoy spending time with your parents.

I’m really behind on listening to mixes so I’m just catching up.  One I’m caning right now is Sinistarr’s March mix.  Really great track selection.  Love it.

Scorpion Kiki

Submorphics is trekking across the pond  for the next six months so we’re having a little Chitown dnb posse going away dinner at the hot spot Wing Hoe.  I’m excited cuz I’m totally in a Wing Hoe mood and will definitely indulge in a signature scorpion drink.  Yum.

Lots of dnb goodness today in the Chi.  Sinistarr and Submorphics will be joining Stunna in the Greenroom for his Bassdrive show which will definitely be dope and the new dnb monthly Shakedown starts at Lava today so if you’re around you should tune in and stop by.
