Two Hundred Nine.
Sunday, 2017.11.12, 8:01 AM CST.
Current Mood: Kind of uncertain.
But not bad.
Current Scent: Boss in Motion by Hugo Boss. Yum. Orangey.
morning, I woke up at about 5:30 AM. Part of me wanted to go back
to sleep, but part of me just couldn't. I had been craving to
do something creative all weekend and still hadn't been able
to properly scratch that particular itch.
I got up and I fixed myself a combination of two Asian instant coffees
that I had recently purchased at Tulsa's Nam-Hai supermarket:
Super Power and X2 (or, maybe I should call it "Strong X2").
I know what you may be thinking: "Badger, instant coffee
- really? Blasphemer." I don't blame you.
yet, I can attest to the fact that these two together - or even X2 by
itself - can make a pretty impressive cup of coffee. You can even
see in tiny print on the X2 packet: "for vigorous personalities."
That's me. A vigorous personality. Heh.
here's the big thing today:
more DJ bookings until the end of the year.
off, unless some REALLY amazing opportunity comes along, I am not doing
any more public DJ appearances from this point until the end of the
year, with a possible New Year's Eve performance on the horizon (stay
tuned). In fact, I am even holding off on taking on any more private
Bravo Pro DJ
Retro DJ bookings until 2018 as well - which I will announce on
Facebook pages soon.
in a Blender is even skipping December due to scheduling issues,
but it should start back up at Lot No. 6 in January.
I've just got too much going on for the next several weeks. Besides
various scheduling matters and kid-related stuff and whatnot up through
the holiday season, I also have some family-related issues that I am
continuing to address at this time (nothing really horrible, I assure
you), and I also have an enormous project at my "day job"
upon which I must direct a heavy amount of focus.
top of all of that... I have other, less taxing, creative projects upon
which I am working, some of which will have very little to do with DJing
or music at all. I've been planning some of them for years.
is my own personal miniature maelstrom. There's no particular
part of it about which I should be particularly worried... but, all
together, it's enough to drive me a bit nuts.
I mentioned, these other "creative endeavours" of mine take
time, but nowhere near as much time as a DJ performance takes.
If people knew how much time I often put into the preparation for a
DJ performance, a lot of them would wonder why I would even still do
course, those who do know me well know some of the reasons
been doing it so long (28 years so far!) that I don't want to stop.
feel the need to keep being one of the rare "good" DJs in
an industry saturated by crappy wannabes, clueless newbies, and shallow
jackasses who are strictly in it for the money.
an obsession, plain and simple - something that's part of me that
I don't want to give up.
for the time being, I hope that you all understand that I've got a lot
on my plate, and I look forward to performing for you again in 2018,
if not a few hours sooner.
the meantime, I'll continue to work - on occasion - on Project: Mercy,
and Project: Recollect, and Project: BK30A.
on those later. I have so many things to tell you someday.
for reading... and, for now, take care.
