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.
