Christmas Stress Kiki

Christmas in London.  I think I was about 9.  Christmas cracker party hats and all. ❤

Sorry for the neglect.  It’s only wednesday and already my week has been uber hectic and majorly stressful.  😦

I’m trying to get all the prezzies for my nieces and nephew sorted.  I haven’t even sent out my Christmas cards yet.  I found out yesterday there was an issue with the computers and it was saying that my student loans weren’t processed so I had to trek up to my school and stand in line and sort that out.  My new job is still passing inspections and hasn’t opened yet so I’m still living on a tight budget, which doesn’t bode well for me since I’m going home for Christmas and will miss a day of Small Bar money since they are not open Christmas Eve.  *sigh*  Too much stuff.  I’ll shut up now.

I’ve been thinking about my year end list of tunes the past couple of days and as far as that is concerned it’ll be the same as last year.  I don’t think my blog will ever be like it was the first year that I did it because I am not in an office where I can sit and write everyday and listen to tunes non-stop.  That being said my year end list from now on will only be songs that I heard and liked.  Since I am not able to keep up with the hottest tunes or what came out when anymore, the list will be purely what tickled my fancy, be it old as hell or just released yesterday.  I’m pretty sure that disclaimer was unnecessary because those of you that read my blog know that my ramblings are just that, ramblings.  They have nothing to do with what actually goes on in the industry.  LOL.  I”m just an old lady that likes to blab about dnb. 😉

Tunes:
Kiat – Feeder

Zero T v DweleI Think I Love You
I love Zero T remixes.  Dwele is awesome regardless so it was bound to be a good remix. 🙂

Mellow Kiki

I’m excited for the weekend.  I feel like I have fun activities in store.  Fun by my definition anyways.

It’s Jessica’s bday on sunday but we’re celebrating tonight.  We’re gonna be lowkey and just have a nice meal and kick it grownz up style.

Tomorrow I’m gonna go see Madeleine’s new digs as she has moved to my neck of the woods, not down the street but definitely closer than Pilsen.

Then sunday me and Caroline are going to Bed Bath and Beyond to give our bathroom a makeover.

Yes, like I said before, these things are exciting to me and me alone.  LOL.  Caroline moving in has given me the push I needed to inject new life into my flat.  I’ve been meaning to do it for ages but really just never did it.  Sometimes I need some drastic change to happen to motivate me to get a move on.

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.

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.
