Curriculum Kiki

Not to bore you with my work gripes, but I’m designing this curriculum for this course and man is it kicking my behind. Creating materials is extremely time consuming.

I’m listening to Missing & Trex and making worksheets.

I love starting my mornings with dnb. I know many people think I’m crazy to start my a.m. listening to 170 bpms, but I’m such a fan of getting the day cracking with some deep bass, drums and a liquidy vocal.

Good vibes. 🥰

Kiki vs The Remix

Sometimes I have irrational anger towards bad remixes. 😂 I didn’t make it so there’s no reason to get so angry. SMH.

I just feel like if you are going to take the time to remix something, do it well! Do the original justice while also giving us a new take.

Anyway, SATL bringing the goods on this refix sparked joy on the elliptical this morning.

Versatility

DnB you are so versatile.  I zone out to you when I’m planning a bunch of lessons and,  I zone out to you when I know I have no intention of planning said lessons.  This morning it’s the latter.

Thanks Juju for the reminder, I am now in full-blown Atlantic Connection mode.

It’s gorgeous outside this a.m. and I’m only planning on listening to tunes from 2006 – 2007 today. 🙂

BCee Promo Mix

Man, I used to stan so hard for BCee and Spearhead.  I’m sure they still do a ton of stuff but since I’m rubbish at keeping up with the ins and outs of the dnb industry, I really have no clue what they’ve been up to.  I’m happy to see this mix.

Here’s a good old Spearhead flashback.  Not really a big Netsky fan but I’ve always liked this tune.

 

Currently listening to this gem as I try my best to avoid the urge to nap on the couch in my office.  No classes to teach til April when the new school year starts.  Must be productive!

I actually have a schedule that I made for myself today so I think there’s hope for me yet.  🙂

 

Weekend Fun

It’s friday and I’m excited that there are again fun things to do.  The one thing that has been keeping me sane from the lack of working is that I’ve actually had the opportunity to take part in some fun activities since I got back.  Hopefully this keeps up until it’s nice outside again and I won’t have to worry about being trapped in my flat when there’s nothing to do.

Tunes:
Mutt feat. Kevin KingForget (track is in Spearhead Records player)

I’m not to familiar with Liquicity but I found this mix on H!ghtimes and listened to it while working out today.  Takes a minute to download but definitely worth the wait.  ❤

Neglectful Kiki

Hello.  Yes I’m rubbish.  I didn’t mean to neglect you.  I honestly didn’t realise that the main reason I was able to write in my blog everyday was because I spent all day sitting at the computer.  I’m seriously not home long enough to come up with the time to write posts these days.  I’m going to make an attempt to do them first thing when I wake up now.

My 4th was pretty cool.  Beatchemist and some of our Bassdrive buddies were here through the 4th so I kicked it with them at Juju’s and drank ate and watched the fireworks on Juju’s street… yes I did say street.  True Chicago style people just having firework wars from block to block.  Woot.

I’m still not to stressed out about not having a job.  I’m still optimistic that the situation will sort itself out.  I think that stressing about money is really annoying so I’ve just chosen not to do it.  The thing that is making me a wee bit depressed though is not having anything to do.  I’ve become quite adept at filling up my days with activities but when you wake up at the crack of dawn like I do, it makes for a pretty long day.  I guess it’s just nice to feel useful sometimes. *shrugs*

Anyways back to dnb land.  I’ve actually been listening to a lot of stuff but just haven’t written about it.  Lets get back on track Kiki!
