[music |Random Access Memory - "The Wrath of Virgo"]

Just got back from the Xavier Rudd show. One-man band, playing various combinations of: didgeridoo, lap guitar, lap bass, harmonica, kick drum, shaker egg, xylophone-style thing, and doing vocals. If he's coming anywhere near you, I strongly recommend seeing his show. Amazing.

(Was also the most crowded I've ever seen Winston's; it was definitely standing room only, and even before the main show, two people got ejected for rowdy behavior. Was involved in one of those ejections ... kinda scary. I don't think that guy was just on alcohol...)

Other than that, just plodding along.

deliriumdreams had business in San Francisco, but flew out here first... so we went to the Stone 8th Anniversary party; then to a friend's house unwarming; took the train up to San Luis Obispo; drove up to San Fran; went sailing in a catamaran on the bay, had some lovely food for dinner, and a wonderful night at a posh hotel; then she had to go home early because her mom had pneumonia. Still, a lovely few days of visiting with her.

Had a lovely Labor Day vacation visiting deliriumdreams; we got together with raindancer and her family; N (who first introduced us) and V, his wife; my friends D & J (who were out here this January), and generally goof off. deleriumdreams and I took her daughter K to the state fair, which was lots of fun.

Work has been interesting of late. There's an ongoing project which I find really annoying, and there's been some big news lately about the company, so who knows what's going to happen. (It does seem that I still have a job for the foreseeable future, which is nice.)

Scheming to see Random Access Memory in Tempe on October 1st with deliriumdreams and jettdelirium. chancellor_d, you should join us; they're pretty good future pop.

The Rosarito-Ensenada Ride is coming up next weekend (September 25th). It looks like my friend D, his gf K, and I will try to do a one-day trip (leaving here early in the morning, doing the ride, then coming back that evening...). Will be exhausting but hopefully fun.

ohdhalia is coming out to visit me the first weekend in October; I haven't seen her in three and a half years, so that will be delightful. The plans so far include hitting a bunch of roller coasters...

Longer-term plans include spending the first week of November in New Mexico (in Las Cruces for the annual Halloween party, then up to Abq to pester deliriumdreams and attend a wedding).

Me? I'm just plugging along.

Re: Hang the DJ Hang the DJ Hang the DJ

Actaully, it all depends on a number of determinate factors...

I only made people dance via electronic means from 1991 - 1995, and again in 1998, 1999 and 2001(different project there).

Forgive me if I cannot remember. Tony...set me straight here :)

Re: Hang the DJ Hang the DJ Hang the DJ

This was the 92 - 95 stint. Very good stuff. Id be interested in listening to the other eras if there are recordings floating around.

You prolly don't remember me, fairly unremarkable back then, tiny, lots of frizzy hair and coke botttle glasses.

Re: Hang the DJ Hang the DJ Hang the DJ

Vaguely I do remember something, please keep in mind that we used to consume quite a bit of "the drink" (a.k.a Bud Light...ick) during those shows. It amazing that I remember anything at all of those days...not becuase of show time drinking, but rather ALL of the stimuli that surrounded us at the time.

My query to you is:

> SELECT First_Name, Last_Name from Past_Ulcer_Performance_Attendies where hair = 'frizzy' AND eyesight = 'coke bottle-ish'

Well, at least you didn't select *, that would be a huge resource drain.

Re: 20 Queries

We'll have to establish query time for after I get back from Inland Invasion 4 this weekend.

In the mean-time I will think hard about WHO you are and WHEN we met oh so long ago.

Until then, Cheers!

Fortunately, I've been able to avoid PHP.
