this is a night to be happy isn’t it?
happy new year to all my east coast peeps!
Sifting through old music, I found my old Wax Trax box set and playing old industrial faves from Reptile House (hi @artemiswinter!) in Mich.
Happy Secretaries Day everyone!
Walking around downtown, you can feel the electricity in the air, people are excited, or as I just heard a tie-dyed crew say, “fired up!”
What ever happened to Jell-O Pudding Pops?
In full-on hardcore work mode on the last day of the year. However, a year ago today i was bidding farewell to a job. Happy to be working!
#10yearsago Was in Portland, OR, staying with friends in a house lacking a heater. Quite cold. For Y2K, at a house party, fairly uneventful.
Inexplicably listening to Yes’ “90125” album incessantly the last few days. For some reason, it’s connecting with my brain right now.
My father is retiring from his job today after working there for 41 years. Crazy. Congrats to my dad, Dennis!
i have to agree: ‘wow’ is right. heh heh. RT: wow. just… wow…. “man talk” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynoiBF7OjkI (via @burstein)
Very excited to mark the return of monthly storytelling to SF w/ Fireside Storytelling formed from ashes of @memoirspool (via @FiresideStory
My corner store has 4 free calendars for 2010: america is great, catholic images, kittens, and “builder babes.” Which one did I pick?
This is good news. RT: @datn Rush Limbaugh rushed to hospital: http://bit.ly/8oyk8M

Day 2 of my addiction/obsession to Zero 7’s “Ghost sYMbOL.” This is such a bizarre track. The vocals are totally warped. Quite a departure.

I think a trip to Lee’s Deli for a damn fine sandwich is in order. I hunger.
I just walked for 15 minutes to montgomery street to find that lee’s deli is closed for remodeling till jan 4. FAIL
in 2010, i resolve to step up the DJing. i’ve neglected it a bit in the 09 but it’s high time i step up. it’s my passion, dammit!
Yay! I’ve seen nearly of all these too. RT: THE 10 MOST NSFW MUSIC VIDEOS OF 2009. http://tinyurl.com/yecmbdy (via @ericwareheim)
Already starting to plan for my brain-melting ambient/chill/bizarro dj set New Years Day morning at 6 a.m. Melting brains is a top priority.

Zero 7’s “Yeah Ghost” a nice & dark aural comfort rite now. Track i posted, “Ghost sYMbOL,” was completely insane live at Warfield 2 wks ago
Who needs a keyboard? Take the web everywhere you go, use whatever surface you want. Bad ASS. http://bit.ly/6cxFn8 This is the future.
We’ve decided to keep our christmas tree. Till Easter.
It’s 5:13 p.m and i’m just realizing i never ate lunch. Then again, i ate so much crappy food over the weekend, my body is still readjusting
Why is it that every year news orgs trot out holiday shopping stats without taking into account changes in population?
The nextmuni tote board has changed from next bus coming in 13 mins to 3 mins in the last 4 mins. Gee, thanks for the updates.

Stuck at home while the plumbers replace the water heater in my place. This also means no access to shower or bathroom. Joyous.
On a positive note, I’m thinking our water will be hotter and (hopefully) better, more intense pressure.
Wow! “Fantastic Mr. Fox” was more than aptly titled. Brilliant.
I have an important announcement: Today, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2009, is World @Joann_K & @timmmii Day. Please celebrate appropriately.
Is it a requirement that if you live in SoCal, at least a third of the population has to wear Ed Hardy clothing or a crappy knockoff?
Can’t believe we’re missing thunder & lightning in sf but ah well. Enjoying these last margaritas before our flight back tomorrow in the AM.
Whoa. Nice boots! RT: @clocklear Clara Mae tries on her new black vinyl boots— teenager!! http://radar.net/c/iUQz

Feeling glad I’m not flying in or out of Detroit like I normally do this time of year because of the added security measures.
Just watched the film “Paranormal Activity.” Wow, that sucked. Why was that film so popular? Horrible, what a waste of time.
It’s amazing how much a few pitchers of margaritas can liven up a christmas day party. Having a total blast with @joann_k’s family!!
Christmas in SoCal is a bit surreal, i must admit. This Christmas morning, I scrubbed a frying pan quite thoroughly. Quite a gift, eh?
We also got MORE tequila! Yay agave!
Nice! RT: @thedailyswarm Hear WFMU’s Xmas Music From Before 1929… http://bit.ly/8QFWU6
Picking out tequila, cointreau, limes and salt for the requisite christmas eve margaritas with @joann_k for her family. Deeelicious!
No, sorry, I just can’t do the menudo, despite pleas by @joann_k’s mom that it “tastes good when you’re not so sober.”
Just was wondering if anyone’s ever done a Three Wisemen-related prank on Christmas Eve or Day? Seems like there should be.
i love giving cool presents i know people will be happy to have. Gets me excited and in turn, makes me happy.
Listening to The Verve with the back door open, cleaning the house up and packing for impending flight to SoCal this evening outta OAK.
