Pencil Me In Kiki

Many people have told me that the key to grad school is really just time management.  I would have to agree.  I’m getting better at it.  When I do what I’m supposed to do in the allotted times I schedule myself for, it definitely makes my day a whole lot easier.

I know I posted this mix at the beginning of this month but if you haven’t listened to it you really should check it out.  I’ve been working out to it for the past couple of weeks.  Really good tracks and nice mix. Data – Jan 2011 Mix.

Mr. Sizef – Street, Snow and 10000 Cups of Strong Coffee
Dang, Mr. Sizef’s track titles are always so long.  LOL

Lounge Or Die

I have been doing some serious lounging.  It’s gotten a bit ridiculous actually.  I forgot that I didn’t have to work on President’s day so basically I’ve worked one day in the past eleven.   Geez.   I gotta get back into productive mode!

Sorry no tunes today, my list is at work.

Absolutely love this one.   It’s so pretty.   I remember being in all my early 20s angst glory and just thinking “this remix speaks to me!”   You think I’m dramatic now?   Imagine me at 21!   LOL.  Classic track.

You Suck

I’m sure you are anxiously awaiting to hear how the rescue mission of my car went yesterday. Trust me it wasn’t pretty. 35 Minutes of digging and begging my car to just jump over the ice mounds surrounding it. I was covered in snow and freezing but I did it… and then it snowed last night and is still snowing right now and temperatures dropped. Nice. As I walked by my car this morning on the way to the train and saw it covered once again in mounds of snow, all I could say is “You Suck!” to the snowflakes and go on my merry way. Boo.

I am promising that this will be my last post about the snow… for now. LOL.

Tunes:
State of Mind – Division 10 (track is in player)

MuttIt’s Pouring Once Again
I’m excited Mutt is coming to Seminar. I love his tunes.

Amaning & StunnaJupiter Rising / Landslide (Blame Remix)
The Landslide Blame remix is dope but I feel like I couldn’t go wrong anyways cuz I already really liked the original as it was. I like the Jupiter Rising too.

Today’s Oldie:
Dj Marky & XRSLKV Recordings 2002
I’m still impatient as far as waiting for tracks to come out, but thank god they take a lot less time than they used to. I waited for this record for 2 years. Bryan G played in Minneapolis this one time and played the most amazing set. I couldnt rememember most of it but I remember when he played this track I knew I wouldn’t forget it. If you know me, you know that I am a horrible track identifier. I always get names wrong, I can’t mimic the sounds for shit. They usually only sound normal to me if I sing them. You get the picture. I asked Bryan about it and fortunately he knew what I was talking about cuz he said that LK was such a big tune that everyone always asked about it. And then I just basically waited for it to come out, and waited, and waited, and waited. A year later I came across a Hospital mix that had it on there and I just played that mix over and over and over. Finally when it came out on vinyl I was just happy to own it but of course barely played it cuz I was sick of hearing it by then. 😉 Summer anthem for sure. Loves it.

Dillinjaaaaaaaa

The last of my friends left today. 😦 It’s easy to get used to having your friends around. It just becomes normal having them be part of your everyday activities.

Erin mixes house and wanted to go to Gramaphone yesterday. We totally got trapped in the storm over there. It was crazy. While she shopped, I perused the dnb section and came across a copy of Dillinja’sFluid/Hard Noize on Test Recordings. Who sold that?? Are you crazy? It was obviously someone who decide they totally hate dnb now cuz no dnb loving person would part with that record. LOL. I own it and mine is so scratched up from overuse yet I refused to part with it. I gladly paid my $4.99 for this lovely gem and went on my merry way. What a great gem to come across! That record is sick. I remember when that record came out it was such the buzz. “Did you get your Test 2?” “Have you heard Test 2?” “Test 2 is wicked!” and so forth. It’s really all about Fluid. That’s what was causing all the ruckus. The way that track sounded on a loud sound system just drove the ravers wild. I was very happy with my lucky find. Now I can get rid of my scratched up copy since it wasn’t playable anyways.

Saburuko has some top notch stuff. I have been loving everything I’ve been hearing.

SaburukoA Darker Side / Solstice

I’m feeling a tiny bit better but still a bit under the weather. I think I just have to have a good lie down and just kinda enjoy my time to myself. My roomate is going to Sweden tomorrow so that will be the perfect opportunity to kick back.

Amen

Sometimes the only thing that makes sense to me is drum and bass. I know that sounds really corny but I can’t help it, it’s true.

I’ve got a really jumbled up brain. I have ADD pretty bad. It’s some how morphed into what I guess they now call Adult ADD. When I was younger I used to go to therapy for my ADD because I can’t concentrate, EVER, and it used to stress me out. The funny thing is now I’m older and instead of getting stressed out I just space out. It’s become pretty bad. If my brain becomes overloaded and I can’t take it anymore I just tune everything out and go into la la land. Trust me it’s a lot better if I don’t do it around other people because I’ve noticed that people tend to find it rude if you don’t pay attention when they are trying to tell you something. 😉

Anyways, I’m completely swamped at work. It’s a bit overwhelming. I have til the end of the week to complete my tasks and I’m not being pressured at all but at the same time when someone hands you 35 case files I think it’s natural to panic a bit.

So basically I’m tuning out the rest of the world and listening to dnb while I work diligently, silently saying my dnb prayers.

I decided to post this State of Mind mix because I’ve actually never listened to their installments of the next level show. When Sun King came out I was all about them and then I let them slip by the wayside. I don’t know what they’re up to these days but maybe I’ll find out after I listen to this mix.
