Momiji Kiki

I’m not too bothered by there being no seasons in SoCal. I am so grateful that I don’t deal with snow anymore that I’m ok with that trade. I do love fall though. It would be nice if I could just go on a “Momijigari” like they do in Japan. Momijigari is going on an autumnal jaunt to see the fall leaves.

Doing homework. Listening to some Smote. I used to be OBSESSED with this one tune of his on Innerground from back in the day. More than happy to jump back on the Smote train. 😊

I also listened to this mix while I was at the gym this morning. Not only do I love Zero T’s tunes, but I also really love him as a dj. His sets are just so good. 🥰

He plays Break’s Squash remix towards the end. That remix really is amazing. Still got it on repeat!




So LTJ was at Respect last week.  He played Peshay’s Miles from Home and Total Science’s remix of Dubplate by Wots My Code… Need I say more? 😍  All round great tunes all night, but you know how I feel about my oldies.


Yuletide Kiki

December, man.  Once Thanksgiving hits, the holiday season just speeds away from you.  I’m spending Xmas in California this year, and am totes looking forward to it.  I haven’t spent Christmas with that side of my family in years.

We got our first snowfall finally.  I always like to take a picture of it, because after the first one, it’s just a brown, gross, crunchy and slushy annoyance.


So many mix choices today!  I’ll start with this Total Science, while I go work out and then see where the rest of the day takes me.

Sun & Bass Podcast #36 – Total Science


Blog bday!  7 years.

I stopped doing my livejournal blog in 2008.  I decided that I was always “all in my feelings” in those blog posts and real talk…, nobody could possibly care that much about my thoughts.

I took a year off and then started this one.  I made the decision to blab A LOT less about my life and just talk about how much I love drum n bass.  I figured that would make me only mildly annoying.

I was just telling Kate that between my livejournal and my wordpress, I have now been blogging for 14 years.  That’s crazy.

I’m celebrating this 7th bday with this wonderful Total Science mix that they did for the Sun & Bass Podcast.

Oh Sun & Bass pretty please, don’t stop being in existence before I actually manage to be able to go. 😛

Ghostly Kiki

This Halloween is a sad one as I’m going to a funeral to say goodbye to a kindred spirit.  My friend Reggie was hit by a drunk driver and killed.  Wonderful person.  Always smiling.  Gone to soon.  Rest in peace dear friend.  You will not be forgotten.

Bad Student Kiki

I’m up at the crack of dawn because I didn’t do my homework and it’s due at 4 today.  Surprise, surprise.  Is it possible to teach myself to be more disciplined?  I reallly have been trying but maybe you really can’t teach an old (emphasis on the old ;)) dog new tricks!

Midterm Kiki

Studying for midterms.  Grad school is good.  I’m still enjoying it but dang there really aren’t enough hours in the day.  I am stressed cuz I don’t ever have time for anything.  Sigh.  There’s a beautiful bright light at the end of this tunnel and so I will just keep trudging through. 🙂

Dave Owen is at Smart Bar today.  Go check him out if you’re in town.

Also Natives at Crocodile is tonight. Ike Release is playing.

Should be a fun night all round.  I’m excited that I get to see my dnb buddies. ❤

Here’s a teaser for the April Natives Show with Total Science.
