Around The World

This clip might not hold you over till I get back from Sicily. But it'll make you chuckle and in case Daft Punk doesn't make you think of me already, you may now.

Random FM3 Fact: Daft Punk's "Da Funk" was the first dance CD single I ever bought and opened my eyes (and ears) to electronic music. Therefore being the song that really began my career (loosely used) as a club DJ. It also has an amazing video by one of my favorite directors, Spike Jonze.

BTW - Daft Punk ROCKED Coney Island last week. Despite the fact that they could have been doing absolutely nothing, it was an amazing show. Truly a spectacle. The Rapture was great as well. If you happened to make the show, you know that the Rapture song "whoo alright yeah uh huh" didn't apply to the thousands of dancing maniacs on infield of Keyspan Park. See you soon!

Been A Long TIme

So I'm sitting here in my apartment. Finally having my PC with me. Not that that's an excuse for not writing in over 2 months... but its my reason.

I'm pretty situated here now. It's been an interesting few months. Moving out has been great for me and I'm really getting acquainted with the space and myself. Well not in that way. OK well in that way too. Since the last time I wrote, I've been to Ibiza, Spain again - which was great and in 5 days I leave for Sicily. I performed a few songs at my "whoops - I guess last year wasn't the last" 4th of July party.

But whatever - I've been writing a lot, writing some songs, and enjoying the quiet of not having to have someone yelling at me to do whatever it is. So along with some records, a kick ass sound system, my computer and a queen size bed - I'm out on my own. Which i know for many people its you're 27 - whaaaa? But if you're reading this, you probably know me and understand. If you don't know me or don't understand - feel free to drop an e-mail to someone else.

So it's definitely strange to live closer to one of my best friends at 27, than when we met at 4. Since we lived a whopping 2 blocks away - but now we live 2 doors away. Jack and his wife Laura have been great to me and its been great to have the ability to socialize, eat and drink with them whenever we desire. There is something college like to it. We've made jokes like "got an early class" to "shhhh, we don't want the RA to hear us." It also doesn't hurt that Laura is an amazing cook and that they always cook more than they can eat.

But in any case - I'm off to Sicily on Friday. I'm very much looking forward to it, as I've always wanted to go there. It'll be the longest flight I've ever been on by myself, and to think of it - I don't know if I've ever been on a flight by myself. So thats a bit odd, but I know I'll be sleeping most of it.

And btw - keep Friday September 14 open.
