today, say FUCK OFF, to someoneI‘ve had one helluva week. It’s only wednesday too! Last nite I was at the station until midnight. We finally flipped the swtich for the new site we’ve been working on for the past few months. It looks great. It also only crashed once today for just a few minutes. It’s bizzare to think that over 60,000 people look at my site on a weekly basis. That is nuts. Not too bad considering over 500,000 people listen to the station a week. Insane. But it’s cool and quite rewarding especiacally when all the attractive sales women come up to you and complement you. It’s all selfish for the, cos a better website means more for them to sell and more for them to profit. So fuck it. No good for me. I dont even get a raise. But I hope to get tickets to Dave Matthews. I am a definately doing U2. That is more exciting. But still. I’ve never seen Dave Matthews before. Well I got to meet him when he came to the studio, but it was kinda a turn off dealing with all the swooning annoying girls. I hate that shit. One large way to not get on my good side is to do that shit. Arg. But anyways. It will be cool to see him and his bad ass drummer. I better get backstage so I dont have to deal with all the dirty white hats. Jessie Belle would definately not like the dirty white hats. Or maybe she does. I sorta hope not. She’s never let me down before. Ick.

Tonight I am going to do nothing. I am not gonna mix. I am not gonna listen to music. I am not gonna burn a CD. I am not gonna return one phone call. I am not going to make calls about Olympus Mons Records. I am not going to talk about it either. I am not going to make my bed. I am not going to fold my towels. I am not going to clean my room. I am not going to do my daily CD filing. I am not going to reply to people on IM who I dont know from MOC who are begining to scare me. Who are you people?! I am not going to make you laugh. I am not going to cry. I am not going to think. I am not going to move. I am not going to jump. I am not going to make Jacqueline a strawberry cake. But tomorrow I will. I just need a day off.

I am of the belief that:
-the mail service blows my mind away

-i am releasing a 7″
-i have a record label
-i am going to be a corporation

-i can tie my shoes…both ways
-i like stickers
-i like candy
-i like the beach (contrary to what Jessie Belle thinks about me and swimming!)
-i like guided by voices a lot
-i dont like bjork
-i like vinyl
-i like vivid
-i like holding hands
-i like bold
-i like blurry
-i like jesus
-i like Jewish mothers
-i like long hair
-i like emotion
-i like intention
-i like predilection
-i like bold

i wants ta get funked up

can you feel the funkSo I have probably had some of the most busiest days of my life these past couple days. I am also about to crash out of this seat on to the floor in a tired rage of sleep. But I will get through this with my Parlament (There is funk after death).

Last friday night Daniel came down to the city of sin or um, DC. We went to Chipotle and I got an amazing Chicken Fajita. This was the one in Rockville. They sorta skimp you there. The one in Bethesda is way more killer. They put so much more funk in there. I felt the funk in that one. Anyways…Daniel was gracious enough to hook me up with a ticket to Rollins at 930 that nite. On the way there we listened to some funkin’ dope ass organic drum and bass and some nice organic house. It very much so made me want to start creating again. I really need to start getting back in that groove. Regardless Rollins was funny as a P-Funk. He talked about so many funny things that we all think about but no one ever talks about. That is the shit that turns me on. In the non-sexual kinda way. It was also pretty funny seeing Rollins come out on stage. He really looked like a GI Joe figure! It was classic when he started skreaching like Gene Simmons. If only Black Flag covered Detroit Rock City!

Saturday I went in to work to sorta break in the new web guy for one of the sister stations. That station is Jamin’ Oldies. I was going to work there if I chose to not work at DC101. That was the only other station where I liked the music they played. (Minus the classic rock station, but they are owned by some other company) So yeah, Jamin’ Oldies rock…they’ll primarily play oldies like Stevie Wonder, and Diana Ross, and Jackie Wilson. So basically a lot of MoTown. The good stuff. I love that shite. I remember from my Pop Music class in college about how MoTown kept their early sound. It was from their bassist. He would never change his strings. I guess for years he’d just use the same strings. Bizzare. What a great class. Even the dude with the excruciatingly obtrusive mullet. Uh, so I basically trained Ben that day. He also worked with me at Discovery Channel before. Uhhhh.

OK. I think i am too tired to type now. Sorta like, too drunk to fuck. Anyways, I just realized that Rollins wasnt friday. Rollins was Sunday. So anyways…before Rollins on Sunday nite was Everclear live in the DC101 studios. That was neat cos that band is relatively big, but i am not really a fan. So it was cool being there seeing all the excited people and sorta being unaffected by it. I did get to take some great pictures.

Today I woke up mega early because Dave Matthews came in. He was supposed to come in at 9ish. So they told us to leave really early because they expected people to clog up the road to get to the station. That happened more or less but I did get there early enough. Damn granola-kids. So Dave Matthews was incredibly good in his performance. Incredibly gentle and friendly. I took mad pictures with him and i’ll prolly post them someday. Maybe tomorrow or the next day. His managers/assistants were telling him he had to leave as they were gonna be late and Dave kept on signing autographs and posing for pictures. He was genuinely nice. I appreciated that. Another one of those things at the station that turned most people upsidedown. All the girls were freaking. I was pretty neutral again. Give me some Johnny Machine man and i’ll whimper like a 13 year old. Anyways. It was a good experience, and I was glad I got to take pictures for such a musician. Oh yeah, why do such annoying people really like his music. Minus Awapy. I mean how can you deny his great hooks and fantabulously interesting voice? I mean I guess I can understand someone not liking it, just like I dont like Le Tigra. But anyways. I used to totally not like them cos of the crowd that liked it, but that is just complete shite…oh well…can you dig it?

So apologies for the lack of updating. I hope i filled in the gaps. I think I missed a day or mixed up one or two there, but you get the gist. I hope you feel the funk like Feets does. Oh yeah, last nite I saw Enemy at the Gates. Go see it! Two thumbs up!
