the biz of the weekend

having my own camera back is nice.
myself and maria went up to a party last night near lake cowichan called stimulate. it was cool to see something going on that we had nothing to do with.. it was good to see some younger promoters putting on a successful party. tonnes of new DJ’s that had not spun out before.. some trainwrecking.. but tonnes of enthusiasm and energy. skills will come later.. some of the mixing was actually quite good, and there were a lot of really good tracks being spun.
it was great to see jessica, someone who i don’t see enough of ..
one of the girls working the islandkidz booth is named jessica as well, i helped her and jeremy get set up..
the waitress at the beagle yesterday that i went to college with is called jessica..

dinner at süze on friday night with chrissie and rich was just sooo yummy. süze is where chrissie and rich first met. later that night they showed up at the extreme 107.3 FM studios together. that’s when i knew chrissie had met someone special.. she brought him to the radio station! rich is one helluva cool guy. it’s awesome that chrissie and rich live close to where i work now.. i can drop by to visit them any time now! ha ha! so long süze.

the sheer amount of paper that collects in my room every month is insane! it clutters up my desk.
i wanted to show you something from monday magazine but their new web presence is a powerful display of the way not to put together a dynamic website. augh, it’s awful! here, look: some of the website looks old, some of it new.. and it bounces you to a portal to do all of this. weak sauce. and how do you search the damn thing? i hope they didn’t pay for their website.. by the looks of it, if they did, they didn’t pay much and they got what they payed for. heh.
so anyway, that old phone was a piece (nokia 5125). pretty good for a year though.. only the odd problem every now and then.. usually involving the battery coming off on its own.

i have a new phone now. it is a motorola T720. it’s a flip phone with dual LCD displays.. big color one on the inside (good for phone book navigation etc) and a little b&w on the outside which is good for call display, time, signal strength and battery power. neat little thing. it came with a clip but i think a clip and a phone like this is recipe for disaster.. its really little when it’s flipped in so it’s small enough to fit in my pocket and i wont even notice it’s there. so why put it out on my belt? yeah. forget that!
kimli is highly entertaining. i know her from STS days, a weird era of geeks of all subgenres uniting to make fun of eachother online ’cause they could and no one else had figured it out yet.
it looks nice out. today i want to get into the fresh air and also i want to work on some music. slept in yesterday, slept in today, and i’ve been taking care of stuff that davin needs to do. although uneventful, this has been a really good weekend and probably just what i needed.

stupid phone

my stupid nokia 5125 is convinced there is a headset plugged into it and i can’t hear anything that is being said over the phone. not only this, it is convinced that the headset is being plugged in randomly every second or so, so i can’t navigate through any of the menus or anything. i don’t know what’s wrong with it. it started doing this last night for no reason.. help!

moving into the blog

resonance will be moving into the blog tonight because our website (on is shutting down and moving to the conkrete concepts webserver! yay tech nerd junk!
i will be DJing on the show tonight from Midnight – 3 AM on 101.9 FM. expect to hear some new goodies from AFK, Tiebreaker and Formulate.. as well as others!
things are moving and shaking for pacific front recordings. we finalized logo this week and are working on finalizing a web design in short order. we have secured web space and are putting together a release schedule which is actually more fun than it sounds! we’re also scheming up remix competitions, gathering more people for a&r, setting up “flagship DJ’s” who will get Pacific Front material ahead of release schedule, and having a blast doing it! it is kind of daunting to realize how close we are to opening up shop. i don’t know what our timeline is but we seem to be moving a lot faster than i had realized was possible. justin is a big reason for this — he is a production machine and gets a lot done in a short amount of time. wicked! soon you will be able to hear all the AFK material i have been mentioning here for all this time..
there are few things cooler than designing, earl grey tea, ulrich shnauss, and burning rubber in the parking lot. okay that last one i didn’t do, someone else did.

what happens at midnight?

wtf is it that happens at around 11 pm actually? time accellerates. i look at the time at around 11 PM and i’m like “okay it’s time for sleep in a sec.” and then i look at my watch again and it’s almost 1 AM! woah!!!
anyone seen fahrenheit 9-11 yet?

screwed up!

it’s weird how as i feel more introverted i get more creative which makes me extroverted once i have stuff to show and/or play for people. what up with that.
my birthday party on sunday was really quite good. nathan volunteered to host the gathering after i told him about the uncertainty with the weather for julie’s place. the weather turned out great, but i had already sent out my invitation with directions by the time julie had decided to go ahead with her original plans. i would have liked to have gone over to her potluck as originally planned but i did not want to confuse people by sending out different directions twice in one day. i missed those who were not able to make it (too much in one day).. some did make it though, which was great! anyway, nathan doesn’t read this but i’d like to thank him for having me and my friends over. we weren’t too messy, i think. and thanks to julie as well for the potential potluck. hee hee hee.
i realized that i have a lot of friends that have not met eachother. erik was looking forward to meeting julie since we’ve known eachother the same amount of time and they’ve never met. what! and there was a whole crew of my buds from The Old House that didn’t show up for whatever reason i don’t know. i saw those guys on thursday though (at hush when i was DJing with azim) so it’s all good.
ooh, i gotta go!
