what can i say? two weekends of out-of-town guests, working like a begrudging mule at my job, and i had to tend to my moustache. i can only hope that i regain some momentum (read: the discipline to wake up a little early and post). thems the breaks.
shitdisco - disco blood
went to the knife show at webster hall yesterday - definitely one of the best shows i've seen this year. they pulled off what the gorillaz failed to (when i saw them supporting the self-titled lp) and used projections, multiple screens, and lights to transform show into spectacle. i've been trying to think of a good analogy, and i think the closest i've come to is "laurie anderson meets bez".
highlights of the night included a stomping version of "we share our mother's health", a sexed up "heartbeats", and a rollicking "you make me like charity"

there will be no excuse for missing this party at galapagos tonight. i'm going to avoid as much cmj nonsense as possible in the city and just go hear one of the most amazing electro lineups in recent memory. it'll also be a trip to see the mstrkrft guys spin at the same place that i've dj'ed a whole bunch of times.
the presets - are you the one (van she mix)
and, although not playing tonight,
the teenagers - fuck nicole (sluttt ketateen remix)
