bohemian like skeletor

more oghty than a steven malcamusToday at work was “Clean out the CD Closet for CDs we wont ever play” Day…this means “Panty Raid” for Mat. So basically since my day consists of putting content on the website and taking pictures and since the people I ask to get things done in LA and San Antonio haven’t been doing that, I got to walk around a lot today. I got to see what everyone else did. But most importantly I got to check out the box full of the CDs nobody loved. In a few words: I basically scored. I got around 60 CDs. All indie labeled random gems. Some Majors were in there…but not ones played on the radio. Boohoo…my new name at work is “Alterna-Mat” or “Indie-Mat” Ha! Or something. Maybe it’s just the peeps in LA. Those people are wack. Funny, but wack! The west coast is so bizzare. Bizzare in that Dirty South kind of way…and it’s not even that they are all that different, but they really are…

So I left work at 3.30pm, as soon as Eve6 was done being interviewed and I was done taking some photo shoots of them. Never really heard them before. I think I saw them a few years back opening for someone. I think they are big now, but I wasn’t sure. I usually can tell when a band is big (that comes in to the station) by how many other fellow employees are there as well…this time there weren’t too many, but it was a mad hectic day, with people running everywhichway. They were really nice. They made a point to shake everyone’s hands and what not. Which led me to conclude they weren’t yet rockstars, but still climbing the “Ladder to Bono.” Oh yeah and, one of the people in the said band, while walking out, said to Skeletor, “I’ll see YOU, tonite at the show!” Needless to say she was red-er than my ass after a good spanking. It was priceless…

So you may be asking me what I am going to do with all the extra CDs I dont want that have pretty faces and pop tunes on their grooves! The answer is that Jessica gets them all. I get to see her this weekend, and she so deserves that stuff. See, all you have to do is invite me up for the weekend. A little wining and dining will help as well…and a back rub…yeah…and maybe some funny noises…or something…

Tonight I am going to lay low…prolly watch some VH1, some weather channel, maybe some History Channel and then check out some new tunage….then hit the sack early. I have done 11-12 hour days each day this week….getting up at 5am is no biggie anymore…at least tomorrow while getting up at 5am, I will still get to leave early for my drive to Philly…woo! I wish they all could be California Girls…or something… Speaking of which…do you like that hair cut of mine in that picture above? I am thinking it’s time for a new change and I really like that cut…word?
