gimme some truth

girls with wings are cooler than those withoutToday was fun. I forget what I did. I got to use the interns for a little to do a little data-entry for me. We get listeners emails and addresses from time to time. They had to enter in like hundreds of that…thank god I didn’t have to. So after they got us lunch i put them to work! It feels good having interns. #1 cos i sometimes have a boat load of work and the trivial stuff always gets forgotten. #2 it’s nice to be nice to them and thank them for all their hard work, cos i was once an intern, and know what it’s like. Regardless, we all know it’s slave labour. But at least it’s voluntary.

I think the Music Director here at work thinks I am swell. When ever there is a new CD that he gets he’ll always come by and just hand it to me or have it waiting for me on my keyboard. Today he handed me radiohead’s new CD AMNESIAC. I actually like this one a lot. It’s spacey, but not Eno-ripoffs. At least blatantly. I think our Music Director is swell. In the latest issue of FMQB which is a radio trade magazine, like MIX MAGAZINE is to audio recording engineers, there is a full page spread of DC101’s CHILI COOKOFF. There are 5-6 pictures there that I took. I am famous. Well not really, but published. Very cool. I also photographed for Billboard incidentally. Bizarre.

Tomorrow is Weezer. Well more than that. I get to go bowling with them. Then they get to perform and sign autographs/chill with us. It’s like 5 hours with Weezer. I am very excited. What is even that much more cool is that GUS BRANT manages them. GUS used to work with SOUL COUGHING. Remember: CLAIRE (danes) – CALL GUS, HE’S LISTED IN THE PENSACOLA PHONEBOOK! Well anyways. It will be exciting to hook with him there…just like the old days of Soul Coughing. Woo! Speaking of Soul Coughing, I got to talk to M’ark last nite. He is doing swell. He’s been working as always on his new love for film soundtracks. He’s also doing a track with Craig Wedren. Mark described Craig’s vocals as “acrobatic.” I think that is the most accurate description of a singer and that particular singer I have ever heard. Very cool. And he’s also working with Yuval and Sebby on TEMPO TEAM. Which is a sorta dancy band (soul coughing sans singer) with neato samples. Be on the look out for an upcoming 7″ on an upcoming label. Be on the lookout! And no, it wont be on LOOKOUT records.
