Latergram from BOOOM BOX where I did two hours and then a bonus third hour after a late cancellation. Of course I forgot to take a photo of the outside as well as a selfie with the silver twins (I'm just glad I got the memo and wore the gold!) Quite a few people with REAL cameras did try to capture me from outside but I doubt I'll ever see any of those photos...which is probably a relief. It wasn't THAT cold, but it WAS cold.

After a boatload of stress leading up to actually arriving JUST on time, super fun and relaxing to just test the patience of the very forgiving and open-minded Dark Horse staff with another three hours of my bullshit on vinyl - then again, they have to deal with three very different selectors every week, so I'm sure by now there's no problem rolling with the punches. I think I ended up eating something like three pounds of fried chicken and may not need to eat again until Thursday. Thanks a heap to Krista Wax for coming down for moral support and laughs, thanks to the nice person who asked if I could play some Kraftwerk ensuring I snuck in BOTH of my radio themes, thanks to the weird brand new regulars who I never should have said "DJ Slurpee" in front of, no thanks to the Wild for not winning.

I'll probably look back at the Betty Boo autograph pack as my most questionable outlay of funds on media for 2022 but damn if that light pink vinyl isn't as seductive as that bonus second CD of remixes and....hell might as well have a BOOTAPE cassette

Technically, it won't be released until Friday the 9th but I guess the vinyl gods were pleased because it was in my PO Box this morning SO I am now playing this VERY sexy double gold vinyl compilation of Charles Stepney's home recordings called "Step on Step" which I encourage you to either buy a copy of your own from Intl Anthem's Bandcamp site and/or stream it Friday when it appears on your favourite streaming platform.

DJ'd "Spins From the Bin" at Caydence Records & Coffee with DJ Carl
12.2 20:55 
LATE ADD: I'm leaving the house AND awake at noon? I must have been given the run of Caydence's used bin AND get to hang with Carl for two hours. Come on up, come on down, come on over and you have my word we'll all still make it home well before the commercials start! Also, at some point during the set, it's quite likely that at least one of us will play a record at 33⅓ rpm that was intended to be spun at 45 rpm.

Still recovering from Wednesday night, sorta - at least it's logged now. Snuck in more Kraftwerk than usual and a couple 808 State as well as some stuff I haven't played in a lotta years AND about an hour of Dollar Bin fare. Best surprise was (Brian?) getting very excited I played Camouflage and learning he was a fellow Californian expat. Thanks to all the folks who attended any part of the night (or even just meant to)!

Oh wow I actually own this? I wonder when I bought it! This was sort of Ian Flomer's request one week on the radio show...is that a Cheapo $4.20 price tag? <consults my web site> Oh wow, so apparently I bought it December 22, 2001, when I was still great about keeping track of that stuff... that's also Kim's birthday so it must be from a Christmas-adjacent trip I took from California to the Twin Cities to meet her (then in New York) and we stayed at her folks' place. Wild! (Yes, I'm going through the Ks for a future Dollar Bin...this one's too expensive, tho)

Hey! Third time with the vinyl in under a week as I hit @republicmn to curate Sunday Vinyl Happy Hour from 10 to midnight! Fantastic food/drink specials and maybe the BEST part is you can avoid me completely by sitting out on the patio in the lovely weather
8.3.20 14:58 
HAVE VINYL, WILL TRAVEL: One last trip for the crate this week as I spell birthday boy Christian Fritz at Republic • Seven Corners Sunday Vinyl Happy Hour 10PM to midnight! There's good cheap beers including a Beer of the Day, Happy Hour food, a FANTASTIC "Sunday Special" combo AND you just might get to see non-regulars stare confusingly at the TouchTunes jukebox trying to figure out what's happening while not seeing the guy at the turntables directly to their left. Fun fact: I am almost exactly nine months older than Christian....I'm not saying he was conceived on the day I was born, but I'm not NOT saying it either

Great time bringing in 2020 at BLB last night! Somehow ended up I loaded up on "F" Artists (haha FARTISTS) because F 2019, am I right? Thanks to Christian Fritz (EDIT: another fine fartist!!) for the opportunity and being a very enthusiastic audience, along with the almost always full house for the full 5 hours. Here's my piece of it, hope you can decipher my handwriting. If you ever have two turntables sitting around at YOUR establishment, I got crates - call my booker. (...who is also me.)
