Weekend Update. . .

wow. . .

Got home from Phoenix, got the car washed, went home, read my e-mail, and passed out until around 11:00pm. Got up Checked e-mail, started coughing a little, so took some Nyquill and passed back out until this morning.

Was a great weekend, it started on Thursday when I picked Ben (far_and_distant)up at the airport and got him to his hotel. We got food at Gordon Biersch talked music and music production and then ended up at the double down for a while. Then it was off to Divebar, where we were assualted by absolutely mediocre band playing bad covers. Eventually, agentubel, Michael and Karyn (Cherry Cheesecake) Suffered through more band from hell, and then decided to go to the beauty bar. . . which ended up being closed. . . we screwed around waiting for Michelle to return, Hillarity and oddness in equal amounts occured and when michelle finally arrived, the only thing she would say on the topic was. "I hate femminists", even more amusing because she had been riding with a guy.

Got Ben back to his hotel, went home crashed out, got up completed my errands, went to the gym, and then went and rescued ben from the boredome of his hotel, and brought him back to my house, so that he could at least have teh intarweb while I made Demo Discs to give out at club.

Got to club and got set up, had fun Djing, saw my friends from Swingshift Sideshow do things, that if the regulatory committee in vegas found out, whould close the club. Ended up at Breakfast with Ben and enjoying $4.95 10oz steaks. . . dropped ben off and wsent home to crash out, returned 6 hours later to pick up him and head for Phoenix.

4 - 24oz can's of energy drink, 1 lb of Beef Jerky. lots of good conversation, and a horde of strange text messages later, and only a slight detour we arrived 1 minute after 6:00pm at Juggheads in Scottsdale. Got to meet squidb0i and not_eurotic in person, and got set up for sound check, and recording the djing and show out of the sound board and into my laptop, and then headed out to the hotel to get checked in and ready for the show.

Came back, drank more energy drinks, said hello to 5arah and listened to the Dj's and bullshitted with plastic_glitter and the guys from Alter Der Ruine (Congrats on getting signed), who told me that Franck at Bunker had been telling them about the PA track for the DB 54 comp. Was talking with Jason and Matt at the merch table when I stopped mid sentance. . . wait a minute. . . that's Polluted Axis on the P.A. who's playing my band. . . (Thanks 5arah) waited for the other people I came to see to show up. cphae eventually wandered in, got a good hug and declinded nibbling on her hip bone (I soo should have) but was bearing the bad news that thermopylae had decided she didn't want to leave Tucson that night. :( <- sad face.

Overall, I really Enjoyed the show, watching people beat the crap out of eachother, and ended up dancing my ass off, and even though the technical difficulties, that plagued the night, were not limited only to the caustic PA. . . I did get some good sections of the show recorded. From now on, I'm bringing the Zen V to all the shows and doing the recording with that. . .

Ended up at Denny's for breakfast with Ben and Matt and then got them over to their Hotel, and me back to mine. Assed out, and woke up at 10:30am got prepped and left Phoenix at about 11:00am. . . got back to Las Vegas at 4:00pm.

Great to have you out for another Sadisco*. You should come down more often. I promise I am normally more with it. The drive down from LA just kicked my ass. I think thats what happened to Danielle so dont be too angry with her.
Jan. 23rd, 2007 01:50 am (UTC)
eh, we talked last night, and I made it clear I'm definately not angry.

I bought a shirt from thermopylae and am yet to receive it. She won't answer any of my emails! and all for $40! that's fucked up.
Jan. 23rd, 2007 09:15 pm (UTC)
really. . . interesting. . . I wonder if she'll see this?
Jan. 23rd, 2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
Hey man, great to meet you too.
(FYI, the lj link above, not working, change the 1 to a i, heh)

We'll definitely have to sort something out for Vegas, maybe in conjunction with another S* night. =]

Lemme know when you get the audio squared away, definitely want that. =]

heh, awesome, I thought I might have pissed you off, glad to know I didnt.

Regarding the recording, I need to offload the file to my audio editing machine, my laptop only has 768mb of ram, and it chokes on a 2.2GB Audio file.

Once I get it offloaded, I'll load it up in Soundforge and clean it up and make it into a 192KB MP3 and host it for download at www.death-by-corrosion.com.

Pissed me off? lol.

If I gave off that impression, keep in mind the sheer quantities of alcohol I ingested that night. =]
Jan. 24th, 2007 01:06 am (UTC)
lol, well, it was after the don't treat this box merlo like a flyer comment. . .so I wasnt sure ;p

Jan. 24th, 2007 01:26 am (UTC)
I have no clue what you're talking about, but ok. =]We cool, baby.
Jan. 24th, 2007 09:47 pm (UTC)
hah...I thought might I pissed *you* off with my stupid-drunkness :P

You need to come back though....May is an open dj-free-for-all. And a lot of cool shows are coming up.
Jan. 24th, 2007 09:53 pm (UTC)
nah, you didnt piss me off, you were VERY drunk. . . and very. . . flirtations would be a generous way of saying it ;p

I'll see what I can do each trip puts about 700 miles on my car (not a big deal), and subrtracts 2 days of PTO. . . (Big deal because it cuts into the other things I have do at the end of summer - I.E. Autonomous Mutant Festival and My Sisters Wedding in Portland)

After I get my promotion and have weekends off it will be less of a big deal.

Jan. 23rd, 2007 06:05 pm (UTC)
DUDE.. you rock. :D
Jan. 23rd, 2007 09:16 pm (UTC)
not sure what I did to deserver this. . . but thanks.

(I mean beyond being my super special awesome rocking self)

/me looks around for nailgun to deflate my suddenly truly prodigious ego. . .

Jan. 24th, 2007 05:01 am (UTC)

Jan. 24th, 2007 05:02 am (UTC)
