are we there yet???

With only three days left until i leave for the cape, i am scrambling to get everything finished on my "to do" list. and each day i find myself becoming increasingly anxious. but in a good way. call it senioritis if you will. part of me has already checked out at work so even the most annoying coworker only bothers me slightly. erik and i were talking about it this evening, like a pair of kids waiting for Christmas to come. I think that I am mostly looking forward to a time away from work and everyday life. to a place that seems so surreal and magical that one can only describe by having actually visited. patience......

you holdin' up traffic green means go

as the scramble to get ready for Ptown commences this week, I can finally say that the CD is officially completed. of course, DJ David LaSalle was no help. I emailed him last week, evening attaching a picture to remind him who I was (as if he needed it) and I never heard back from him. maybe they don't have that high speed Super Net up on the cape. but i have a fairly good idea of what he and Mary Alice are playing.

Here's the tracklist. i will post a download link later in the week if you are interested...


1.amy winehouse - tears dry on their own (alix alvarez sole channel mix)
2.montoja feat chianty - love comes over me (sunfreakz remix)
3.justin timberlake - lovestoned (kaskade remix)
4.freemasons feat amanda wilson - i feel like
5.iio - rapture (freemasons bootleg mix)
6.rihanna - push up on me (moto blanco club mix)
7.shayne ward - if that's ok with you (moto blanco vocal mix)
8.erasure - sunday girl (riffs and rays remix edit)
9.maroon 5 - makes me wonder (trent cantrelle vocal mix)
10.beyonce - green light (freemason vocal mix)
11.kelly rowland - like this (dj escape and coluccio main mix)

souvenirs, novelties, party tricks

the last few weeks have made me realize what truly wonderful and supportive friends i have in my life. first, with Erik and John's show at Mary's, where a large crowd of friends and family came to see the trials and tribulations of Norma Desmond. as played by none other than Erik in full character, makeup included. and to look out and see his entire family in the smoky gay dive-bar, laughing and cheering him on was really very cool. johnbrown played a slightly retarded PTown Barbie/Norma sidekick. the show was creative and very funny. after the show, people stayed around for me to throw down some fun music and give everyone a chance to catch up. on a monday night no less.

thursday night, a group of 70+ gathered at the our old stomping grounds, Gaylo, to send off our good friend John Flippen to NYC. He has taken a position in New York with Google, and i cannot tell you how proud and happy everyone is for him. it's bittersweet, though, as i have really gotten to know this amazing person really well in the last two years, and i will be sad to see him leave. i do, however, see a trip to NYC to visit real soon. yet again, thursday reminded how fortunate I am to have the friends that i do.

then there is Jarrett. while talking on the phone to my mom this afternoon, she replies, "i don't hear from you that often now that you are spending so much time with you 'new friend'". it's funny, as she cannot seem to make herself say "boyfriend" but simply acknowledging that I have someone special in my life is a start, right? and i am sure she meant it in the best possible way. the only thing that parents ever want for their children is for them to be happy and to share their life with someone they care about. it's true that Jarrett and I have been spending a lot of time together. he makes me laugh, and finds humor in my crazy ways. who else could watch me breakdance and do a 'back spin' on my laminate hardwoods and not think that i was insane. well, i just might be sometimes.

and i really don't have any idea why i became very insecure this afternoon, and pretty much acted like a fool. which sent him packing his things and making me feel really bad. there are always time in relationships where the other person will start to get on your nerves, and i clearly became that person with him today.

next up, Ptown. it's a 2 street town, y'all.......
it's the day of the show, y'all!

you never know when love is coming your way...

It appears that Liquified has pulled out of Opera/Eleven50 and made Wetbar their official venue for bringing house DJ to Atlanta. Who could blame them? The space is much bigger, and I am sure that the owners of Wetbar are happy, because I am really surprised the place is still open. It is never near capacity on a regular Saturday night. I was thrilled to see that Kaskade, one of my favorite DJs, will be returning to Atlanta on September 22. Get ready for a an amazing night of music.

And Ryan (Kaskade) will be releasing his next mix CD compilation titled "Bring the Night" on August 21st. Stay tuned for details....

you got the green light

I can't help but find myself filled with excitement and joy for Erik and JohnBrown's upcoming show at Mary's in just a few short days. Tonight, we gathered over free range chicken and butter peas to discuss the evening....from music, to video to costumes. It is going to be brilliant i assure you , so plan on coming out to support these brave boys, and myself of course, as it promises to be a lot of fun.
