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!

  • I am madly jealous of you. I love Dave Matthews. Does that make a a granola girl?
    I shave! And you got to see Everclear. I love Everclear. I want to marry Everclear and
    Dave Matthews. Does that make me a bigamist? Yes, Dave is a totally nice guy. I saw
    him in Syracuse when he was opening band for one of the HORDE shows. No one was
    there in the audience except for about 15 people. The sound was shite because the
    sound guys were all not paying attention, it being 3 p.m. and they were all hung over
    from the massive, continuous party that the HORDE tour was. Dave was having mega
    problems with his acoustic guitar and very unhappy. But he kept plugging away. That
    night after the concert was over, I was walking back to my car. Dave came out from
    between some carnival rides (the HORDE concert was part of the NY State Fair). I
    told him how much I enjoyed his show and he was really sweet and embarrassed.
