The Kanji Sessions

I’m sitting here practicing my Kanji.  Not like the whole Japanese language, more like just my bloody address.  I had to get Kate to come to the post office with me just so I could send some money home because the form requires that I write my address in Kanji in one of the spaces.  Kate is nice and does these things willingly, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one day she just wilded out and was like “No bitch!”  LOL.

Anyway, it’s actually coming along nicely.  There’s one character that looks extra janky but this S.P.Y. mix is giving me the motivation to keep doing it over and over, and over, and over again, until it looks like it’s supposed to.

Bee tee dubs, this mix is not new.  I know you’re not surprised.  The homie Seb has been telling me to listen to it for ages and I only got round to doing it now and it didn’t disappoint.  I had kinda gone off S.P.Y. for a bit but this mix is def. the S.P.Y. that I like. 🙂

Jetsetter Kiki

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 to Derrick Carter at WestFest this 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

Lazy Days Kiki

I have no excuse for not posting for the past couple days.  I’ve just been feeling lazy and unmotivated and I’m also trying to catch up on sleep.

I didn’t get that job.  I’m not worried though.  I’m still trying to be optimistic about the job hunt and hopefully one will come my way soon.

I have nothing exciting to report since as I told you I haven’t really done anything exciting for the past couple of days.  I’m just looking forward to next weekend when I get to go home and see my fam.  My brother and his wife are coming with my nephew from New Jersey, so I’m going to go kick it Madison for the weekend.  Yay.

Trudge Along Kiki

I had a pretty fun holiday weekend.  Me and Daniela kept each other company and it ended up being really nice even though our hood was really a ghost town.

Packed weekend  coming up.  I’m mixing at an art show on friday (will post details on that as we get closer), our friends John and Journy have their wedding reception, my niece’s baptism and of course World Cup final.  I get to see my family this weekend which is always awesome.

Mix recaps…  I love that Asides Knowledge Promo MixAsides has been killing.  I know that mix was a while ago (a while in mixland anyways) but I haven’t changed the mixes on my ipod in a minute.  Awesome tunes, awesome mixing per usual.  Wouldn’t expect anything less from Mr. Cambridge. 🙂

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. 🙂

Over-age Kiki

So me and Daniela went to see Caspa at Smart Bar yesterday.  I like dubstep.  I don’t listen to it as much as dnb but I do enjoy the genre and all its sub categories.  Yesterday I was up for some rowdy party dubstep.  Apparently no one told me and Daniela that it was a 22 year olds only party.  LOL.  I don’t know why I keep being surprised every time I go to his shows.  He has a huge following.  He’s totally grabbed the new ravers crowd.  Me and Daniela were some of the oldest people there.  These kids love him.  Camera phones, autographs, etc.  It’s awesome.  I love watching it but at the same time it’s definitely a reminder that we are old.  It was seriously like a rave in there except we were in a club and it’s 2010.  I had fun nonetheless.  Caspa is  a good dj.  Good times.
