here i am


in nanaimo! wooooo!
i went for a walk with my Auntie Arlene to see where I would be working.. it’s about a ten minute walk from where I am living. tonight I think hitting the press room would be fun, and then sleeeeeeep. 🙂
oh and i don’t seem to be able to check my shawlink email from here. so send email to my shaw account. i’ll get that.

deep dish


haha 🙂
krishen left for florida (again) today. sunday i leave for nanaimo.
so anyways, i recorded my mix last night. but i didn’t turn the webserver (this webserver) off before i did it. i should’ve. i had many visitors last night and there are some recording glitches because of it.
ugh, so i have to redo the mix now.
gah!

recording time


the decks are all set up and it is time to do my second proton radio mix. this particular mix is a featured artist mix and it’s going to be aired on proton radio on January the 8th. that’s a week yesterday. the thing that will be extra super cool and elite about this mix is that it’ll be the first time anyone hears the finished version of my newest track, “arctic exploration.” i just finished it this afternoon.
yesterday i wrote a new DJ bio. it was easy. i had a really tough time with bio’s before, especially of the DJ variety. there are a few stock phrases and beyond that, it’s all about what the DJ has actually done besides DJing. most DJ writeups / bios that i’ve seen kinda go like:

DJ JOHN-E HAS BEEN SPINNING EPIC TRANCE FOR 6 MONTHS AND IS A FAVOURITE IN THE INTERIOR OF MANITOBA. HIS SETS LEAVE YOU SOARING IN THE TRANCE HORIZON AND ARE PUMPIN’ IN A WAY THAT YOU WILL NOT SOON FORGET!!!!!! PREPARE TO GO OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

anyway, my bio isn’t exactly too different than that. well maybe it is. the point is… is that kind of writing makes me not want to write. writing on this blog has helped me get past that. yay blog!
you’ll be able to see the writeup on the proton radio site on the 8th. or maybe sooner. i don’t know when they’re going to put it up.
change of subject here. one of the people from ‘the group’ named sandra (of paul and sandra.. they’ve commented a few times on here) is in the hospital for something pretty serious. i’m sending my good thoughts to her and i hope everyone who knows her is too. read julie’s website for more info.
