nice vid. i always find it hard to believe that these animatics are the official videos, but this one is amazing. great production art and voiceover work over a cool Dilla beat. worth more than one watch.
MN=Coleman over Franken (and by such a slim margin)?
CA=Yes to Prop 8?
Two minor setbacks/heartbreaks.
Otherwise, a beautiful day.
Muxtape updated for good weather soon come. Have a listen.
I made a trek back to my old stomping grounds in the suburbs the other night to spin at a friend’s party. Proper club, big sound system, so on. I was worried I’d be asked to DJ first – groggy from the train ride and not many people in the spot doesn’t make for an energetic or enjoyable set. Instead, I was told my slot was late/last – around 3, “so people will stay until the end.” This, however, was presuming that lots of kids wanted to hear me spin. Versus get home on the last train and make it to work the next day. No problem; I was happier to talk to old friends who were able to come through early on.
But, of course, 3 turns to 3:30 and the crowd starts to thin. The organizer is gone somewhere, and the rest of my DJ friends are congregating outside somewhere. I’m recovering from a cold, so I give up and lay down on a sofa in the back “VIP” room. Get woken up at 4, “Do you want to DJ? Everyone’s pretty much gone.” I make a go of it for about twenty minutes, but shut down when I realize that we can all leave whenever. Anyway, here’s what I was thinking of spinning. Have a listen. By the way, it starts at about twenty seconds in, so hang in there. It’ll give you time to close all of the pop-ups.
