I like Quote Marks (Or, as Irish Uriah says, "Inverted Commas")  
I feel like I haven't posted in forever, which I know to be not true. Two days is not a long time. I think I'm a junkie - and I guess the first step is admitting I have a problem. Yeah - whatever.

The shower in my apartment has officially been upgraded from "pain-in-the-ass" to "A Puzzle from Myst." Every day, the faucets do different things - there is not a consistent level of "turn this faucet x degrees for a volume y of water at temperature z." So every morning, I get to wake up by solving my shower's lateral thinking problem of the day - getting the water temp somewhere between "tac-nuke explosion" hot and "breaking off my extremities" cold.

Erragal makes some damn fine curry - even if he uses my wok like a cooking pot. That was just weird.

Thoughts from Dance -

  • The DJ is always responsible for killing the audience - and three times is too many. But even this can be forgiven.

  • Should I be proud of myself for hitting on someone for 10 straight minutes without her curling up into a ball? (This time, specifically) I dunno - the line between "quality time" and "notice me, Dammit!" grows ever thinner.

  • People are "planning" things for me. That involve other people - ???

  • Chase's step-sister is "about Doc tall." WTF?

  • Having your ankle hurt enough to stop you dancing sucks - when Avatar's ankle is even more fucked-up and she dances just fine. You got mad pain-control skills, girl!

Finally, for some reason, iTunes has the Thundercats theme song come right after "Blow up the Outside World." I didn't even know I had the Thundercats theme song.

Ooh -- what kinda dance?

The monthly Gamer dance - techno, metal, industrial. (but mostly techno/industrial) Now, it's usually named after some iteration of Spontaneous Human Locomotion. Always a lot of fun - three sets of one hour each. These dances have been going on for about 8 years now (?), and there's a long history of putting an obsessive amount of time into working out transitions, mixing, soundbytes, and re-mixing for the dance. (or being good enough to do it all on the fly) The uber-dj's (which, I guess, is a category I could fall into) never dance - we just watch how the current dj is using the lights, transitioning, how their set flows, etc.

I'm doing a set next month, so my obsessing began sometime last night ;)

I suck at lights. If I could? I'd just make everyone dance in the dark the entire time. I dance with my eyes closed most of the time, that's dark- why can't they do the same?

sigh. I need to practice djing, as I've gotten mega-rusty. You need a guest dj sometime between now and next dance, doc-est?

Well "Mystery Caller" . . .
Definitely. At this hour, I don't remember who I have lined up for this week, but there will definitely be more. And you've done it enough that I'm sure you'd only need a little practice ;)

I can't stop myself...
I ought to know this, but hld didn't mention it in the e-mail, is the dance the 9th or the 16th? Also? We do need to converge and discuss theme-ish stuff, and I need to know what you're thinking for your first song, and blue for her last, but we can do that later and elsewhere.

I like less lighting, a dark dance floor... with maybe a flash here or there.

::submits official interdepartmental request for a copy of last month's set::

Looking forward to it.

The set to come, and the set that Was, that is. :oD

Three years, doc. Three. You were there for the first one. Remember? If you want to get non-continuous, then just say "since 10K was built". And the one year Cam actually did a year of them--the year before your first--certainly doesn't count; since Cam did such a good job of going out of his way to not advertise them that I didn't know about them until two years later.

And does that mean that mean Phil, Uriah, & I don't count as uber-DJs? (No offense to anyone else--just the first two who weren't me to come to mind).

Okay, you win - I suppose it's not fair to apply the Ubergamer criteria to UberDJ's. It really isn't all that similar.

And wow- it really has been three years.

Meh... it wasn't bad but not entirely up to my standards.

Heh, yeah I use woks like that sometimes. I think it goes back to when my wok worked and I would cook beef vegetable soup in it 'cause it was the only thing I had in the dorms to cook soup.

Soooo much beef vegetable soup...
