erm like Digit I am going to forego the fill blown weekend report... although it was amazingly fun you dont have to take my word for it
and Poor poor drunk Nachtrichter
..just to name a few.
the hilarity that ensued was indescribable. Sykospark informs me that there were 25 ppl at an LA sk.meet once. feh.
Myself& TheTalentedDigit went to Coney Island on Saturday; i love taking people there, its so beautiful... the setting for Requiem for a Dream... it takes a certain mind to appreciate that kind of discarded beauty.
We missed Death In June on Sunday, because funds are tight. Instead we walked around Battery Park City, which is the park directly to the west of what was the World Trade Center. there was this huge space inside the still-standing World Financial Center that had this audio-installation in it.. the space looked like the inside of a mega mall or arena or something and the acoustics were awesome; there were 4 sound designer people's work being played there, the best was the things that were done with violin noises; we totally stumbled upon this thing on accident and were amazed at it/spent like 45 minutes&listened to all 4 pieces...
In front of the World Trade center used to be this golden globe-ball thingie that i used to loiter under, this thing was huge and round and shiny... i remember after Sep 11th seeing it in the middle of the wreckage on the news and it really hitting me that it was gone... well i had already started to tell digit about the gold ball thingie when we were in another part of south manhattan.. and there it was, like a ghost.. apparently they salvaged it out of the wreckage, bent by heat and burnt and twisted.. and put it back up... it was just kind of eerie to see.
later we watched True Romance *or was that the night before? my chronology is fucked* its got a really great Christopher Walken vs. Dennis Hopper scene... yeah that must have been the night before b/c Sunday night Death Condition and Wintermute came over to the DBD/Insomnia house and entertained us... and Digit played his side project moosic... its really pretty... he uses drums like gridlock... death condition fixed my keyboard by giving it a dirty look... it wasnt sending MIDI signal before and i dont know why but either way now it works.. thanks chris!! and we set up FM7 synth on my compu-taar...
as you may well know i am taking a small break from sales/banking... i now work in a factory/warehouse as the office manager *aka the only literate one there*... this was my first day at my new office, it was tough b/c they hadnt delivered the office furniture and we got a HUGE FUCKING shipment of merch that came unexpected, only me and my boss Ray were at the location so i lugged like 8 racks of 48 boxes each weighing 20 lbs up stairs... i knew this job would be tough/ its a pay cut as well. but the stress is less and i get lunch/dinner bought for me as part of the deal... so im blue collar for a while, and you know what? it feels kind of good... im less stressed, i can actually focus on things instead of having that faded copy feeling id get after dealing with bank customers all day... i can actually draw and write!!! amazing!!! i worked my ass off but somehow it feels like im on vacation... oh yeah and my boss likes XMarksthePedwalk.. he called it Perfect Music!!!
so the cats out of the bag, me and Insomnia are keeping the apartment we are in, its the other roommates that have to leave. as usual i had a great weekend/i nearly didnt go out saturday but im glad i did i had so much fun w/all the sk.net kids... my friends are quickly becoming a really integral part of my happiness... its like the high school i never had.
you guys rock.
and Faint rocks too ;)
