How've you been?
Yeah, things have been weird here, too.
I took a solid month's break from spinning regularly. Sorry folks. I really needed it.
Lots of things have been put into perspective and lots of steps have been made to take care of a lot of shit.
But it's okay.
Here's the last set I did at The Box. It was before Xmas, and I wanted to get all up in that yuletide gaiety while I still could. Necromos helped.
Death In June - The Calling (Mk II)
Light Asylum - Dark Allies
Virgin Prunes - Pagan Lovesong
Necromos: Specimen - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
Siouxsie and the Banshees - Monitor
Joy Division - Transmission
Ninja Lounge is still kickin' out beats. We'll be switching to a bi-weekly format, but the guests we're booking are exciting and the word's spreading nicely. Our most recent guests, Fem Mystique and Skarkrow, tore it up with me this past Wednesday, and I can't wait to get them back on board.

Well there you have it.
I will be spinning regularly, again, starting this Sunday. Technically I'm kicking things off tonight for a birthday party in Oakland, but, you know. Ninja Lounge will be back on the 22nd this month, but we're keeping the guests on lockdown.
You know I treat you right.
I have to be honest.
I've been making music, again, in my time off. My brain was allowed to shift its focus more towards doing that.
And I want that more.
So, my brain needs to make a bit of a shift in priorities.
(But I still love to shake with you guys, as well. Fear not.)
One more thing.
I have an idea for a new short story.
