More new remix acquisitions and other updates-o-rama.

Happy new year and all that crap.
Well, the last time I wrote an update, I was very down-in-the-dumps about the holidays. Well, I'm happy to report that things are at least a little bit better. I've been doing what I can to stay a bit happier, I've been cleaning my apartment, I've been working to lose weight, and I've even done what I can to try to keep a positive cash thing going on.

Remixes!  Remixes!  Remixes!
Since the last update, I'm happy to say that I've been acquiring more rare remixes like a 14-year-old acquires pimples.  (Yes, I've been able to do so even while climbing on top of my personal financial behemoth.)

Although I won't go into tall the details (I don't want every other DJ trying to track them down), I will say that many of them are from an extremely cherished and tough-to-find remix company from England, and in fact most of the new remixes were flown to me from sources outside the USA.  Some of the new mixes I've received have been of such famous tracks as Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart," Robert Miles' "Children," Tears for Fears' "Shout," Duran Duran's "The Reflex," Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love," and Moby's "Natural Blues."   Really swank stuff.  The "Natural Blues" mixes were so rare that I didn't even know they existed until a few weeks ago!

Oh, and I've gotten some interesting rare mixes of a few more obscure tracks, like Telepopmusik's "Breathe" (you may have heard that one in a Mitsubishi ad) and Fischerspooner's "The 15th."  Oh!  If that wasn't enough, I've obtained both of the rare promo 12" singles of Dave Gahan's "Bottle Living."  That means nothing to most of you, but for the Depeche Mode fans out there, you know how hard these things are to get hold of.

I cannot wait until I'm able to share these mixes at a party in the near future.  Things like these are what keep my DJ blood pumping.

When is that party, again?
Crap.  I don't know anymore.  We're now within the two-month mark of the infamous March 20th, and I don't feel I have enough time to do everything I want to make this party really go right. 
I even had a dream about it last night.  I might just wait until September or October to have the EKG 15th anniversary party.  *shrug*  Who knows?

However, I do have something else in the works... I am considering DJing a major bash (not for my 15th anniversary) on Saturday, June 12th.  I can't say any other details, but if something does start to develop in that vein, I'll be sure to post it here.

[I got sidetracked while writing this update and didn't complete it, but it's actually being posted on Saturday, 01-31-2004.]
