oh boy.. being sick really sucks. it’s kinda like.. whoah. i am actually sick enough to take two days off of work. i don’t think this makes me a workaholic, but i really dislike taking any sick days from work. er except for when i worked at Randy River. hahaha, taking sick days from that job was okay. i didn’t mind at all.
i have got the beginning of James Holden’s double CD stuck in my head. such weird.. strange and great music. i got an email this morning from his agent asking if i am interested in doing some radio stuff with mr. Holden.. the answer is a definite yes (of course)! the man is brilliant — there isn’t anything by James that I either don’t love or respect from a production point of view. Luke Chable has developed a sound that is (in some respects) similar to James Holden’s and i wouldn’t be surprised if the immaculate mr. Chable cited mr. Holden as one of his production influences. word on the street is that they have made a song together anyways, so that’s pretty cool.
the James Holden stuff wouldn’t happen til january or so..
by then nickgurns may have moved away! do i want to do a radio show by myself? hmmmm…… i have done it before many times.. less fun though.
i sorted through all my records yesterday, except for the ones that sit eternally in my closet in a wooden ikea box that i got when i was living in vancouver. i seperated the ones i am interested in playing (for fun) from everything else and i still came up with a fairly large pile of music. most of it is pretty straight forward quivver/chable/holden style progressive house, and also some momu/fretwell/starecase style breaks. one track that is really kicking my ass right now is a new one by Morgan Page and Gregory Shiff featuring Astrid Suryanto .. the tune is called “All I Know” and the M.A.S. Collective remix is [censored] huge. i almost said effing huge there but i’m not on the radio right now.. haha, so how well trained am i?
my throat has cleared up a bit, but in that clearing up it has revealed that it is incredibly itchy. ack, did i eat some nuts by accident?!?! grunt.
i still have that present for justin sitting on my table. i gotta give that to him.
the canucks spanked detroit last night, 5-1. they’re #1 in the nhl standings early in the season. nobody figured it would be last year that the canucks would rule — everyone said it would be this year. well, so far, so good. keep it up boys, see?
i haven’t been able to watch any of the games this season. seems like less of them are on tv.. i don’t have sportsnet and i don’t think i want to get it just for canucks games. although really, that would be the meat of what i would watch on tv. right now i don’t watch any tv at all.. i caught a bit of the 5:30 – 6:00 ish news last night and i had trouble taking the anchors seriously. i know they are paid to act serious. which is exactly why i can’t take them seriously. bye bye, anchors.
holden! huge! and huge congrats. and feel better really soon.
aww..po’ davin. get lots and lots of sleep!
p.s. t.v. is evil.
Hope ya feel better soon Davin!
I don’t like taking sick days either, because even though I’m sick, for some reason I feel guilty. But the thing I DO like about being home sick (as long as you aren’t heaving every 5 minutes) is being able to just relax and do nothing. If I’m not sick, I feel like relaxing is a waste of time when I’m home, so I rarely do it. But if I’m sick, I can just lay on the couch and read and veg without feeling like a bum – because I have a good reason to be doing it!
So I hope, despite feeling sick, you can get some decent relaxing in there!
P.S. if you are feeling better Wednesday, Adam and I (and whoever else wants to come) are going to the 10:15pm showing of Matrix Revolutions – come out!
Hi Dav, I am sorry to hear that you are sick, but I am a little concerned. Leslie is also sick. I find this to be a little to coincedental. There were many times in the night when I was preoccupied with your friends. Btw, what news was it that you were watching? Talk to you soon…resonance?
Canucks are rolling along nicely indeed. I too have missed most of the games so far this year.
I don’t have to pay for cable where I am at, but I still don’t watch much TV at all. So many years of being busy days and nights. Those evening jobs meant I missed those thursday night shows. On another note that means I haven’t seen most of the re-runs:)
I was also thinking of that damn rock and bowl tonight (wednesday) if anyone is interested.
