hahaha looking back over my writing it lookse so goddamn CHEESY sometimes.. sometimes i'm on point.. but sometimes i'm melodramatic...
we interrupt 'deep thoughts by DBD' to bring you..
the long awaited weekend report...
Friday i was all like 'screw valentine's day' and after cutting some strings i went to Nowhere, Brooklyn and made music with Doktor242... long live the novation nova..
SaturdayCROSS PLATFORM was fucking AWESOME for the last night, even if no-one had showed up i would have been happier than a pig in slop b/c of how well the DJ's did... but almost everyone showed up.. almost.. which was good enough.. it was bangin' downstairs!!! not as packed as Cybertron but we didn't pander to idiots by playing dumb techno!!! ironically, this was the best night downstairs we ever had but i lost money because of upstairs doing badly.. but the night we made the most money (aka enough to cover flyers AND cab's w/equipment) was the night we had three ppl downstairs (Wintermute and DP included!!!) so it all balances out... i have to say i have learned alot trying to do something like this; i knew the format was slightly different and its not your usual accessory to an industrial night.. usually industrial nights are paired up with 80's or bad goth nights.. so i wasnt sure how industrial kids would take idm/dnb/triphop.....but now i know what's possible (with the right venue, of course) and the right atmosphere.. i honestly am boycotting the batcave from now on. they threw out my flyers every time i put them out.. which is just childish.. if you really run the 'best night' you shouldnt have to resort to b/s tactics like that.. the music is terrible. the atmosphere is negative. i am officially boycotting batcave from now on. i will hang out with ppl, i will go to q's.. i am contemplating boycotting pyramid b/c the mgr is such a dick.. I'm even giving up the NCC show in 2 weeks.. oh well. they just run off their DAT anyways and i can get their kurzweil patches and sit at home trying to figure out their songs..
but jesus christ saturday night was fun. thats what i really wanted it to be like; i got attitude from the club manager because (he's a dick) but also because there were so many ppl downstairs that it was making upstairs look bad.. so ppl pop their heads in and all they see was upstairs.. which i heard was empty for a while... and then they wouldnt come in club.. which i understand.. but seriously, thank you for everyone who came out, a super fucking thanks to my dj's aaron spectre and G-DAM (you guys fucking RAWK), Bio, prusik and doktor242... bio you fucking rocked... everyone give me or d242 their set lists so i can post them.. im going to make a dj demo cd of my own slickest segways etc.. just a sampler of what you would have heard at a typical CP night.. haha the manager was so pissed about ppl being there that he cut power at 245 when there were still mad ppl downstairs and i didnt get to spin; but i don't care and for only 3 nights running... to have one night that good.. and its been mad snowy and whatnot..
sundayi went to contempt , stayed out till 4 hanging out with someone i never thought i'd get a chance to know.. (lol its all about the industrial uber elitist yahoo group!!! yah!! got hit on HARDCORE by a famous techno dj who i will keep anonymous.. but he def. came across as an asshole.. and i was trying to get rid of him for awhile.. i didnt know who he was.. didnt catch his DJ name.. so i was just like 'eh its just an anonymous creep telling me he's famous' he was all like 'i BROUGHT techno to the NYC scene' i was all like 'first off you creep, if i had a dollar for everyone who told me this..' little did i know he was actually telling a half-truth.. then i was all like 'well if you're responsible for this then its my duty to STAB YOU. hahaha im really not saying who this was but it was really fucking funny.. i stayed out really late & had to walk home in 3 feet of fcking snow, fortunately work called off.. mine and justine's.. so guess what
WEB2ZONE HAS BEEN HAXX0RED. yes it has.
it is closed for business, but not so closed that myself and INSOMNIA cant be here on the inter-web listening to converter.. dicking around eating candy and drinking soda... i dont feel bad b/c we're snowed in, i already wrote for a good 2 hours today.. theres nothing else to do.. i may go out to CBGB's art gallery to see someones band that i met last night.. i'm supposed to give him a copy of reason2.0- for the Maelstrom graintable synth but my copy is scratched.. his band is called Eisdrive i think?
i havent slept at all.. not since 2 days ago.. i'm pulling an izzy.. but i'm having fun.. me and insom took pic's in the snow.. and i'm all hyper.. so yah.. i just wanted to take a break from the deep journal entries.. still studying.. still working on the book.. still going to go for architecture school.. but goddamn do i deserve a break.. thanks to everyone for making the last cross platform night fucking kick ass.. i love you all...
