w00 h00!

For a lot of reasons recently the computer biz had to take front & center stage. Sometimes a girl has to buckle down & discipline for her own long term good. That has been this past fall. It has been one of the hardest of my life but has also reaped some serious rewards. So as a result, I haven't focussed on music production as much as I would like.

But. The reason the subject line of this post is titled w00 h00! is a very good one. for years i have been working towards something which is to be achieved!

but even more than that, i can't believe i am on my way to over two weeks to celebrate my birthday in the city that stole my heart back in 2009, Berlin.

and here i am. happy. with my new berlin hair do.

28 Sep 2013 @ Project One in San Francisco

Yes I'm back in SF! Sorry I have been neglecting this blog & missed posting a few gigs.

 You can always like me on face borg or follow me on twitter or ask to be added to my text blast list or add yourself to my e-mail list. I recommend the text blast method as that gets you last-minute guest list privileges.

A Day In Amsterdam

I had a great adventure today. These were the only pair of sandals that I have that I can walk far fast in & they broke. I was trying to avoid buying shoes but apparently providence had another idea.

I got to talk to one of my favorite shop owners. His shop specializes in making you spend money on things you don't need. I almost walked out of there with a Dalmatian or lady bug back pack for my DJ gear but then realized I don't have the nerve to use it. Aren't these hilarious?

If you are ever in Amsterdam you have to check out this store.

Friends N Family FRC 2013

I had an amazing time slot (3:20 - 4:40 am Sunday) at an amazing campout this past weekend. Most of you probably know this but California is an outdoor lover's paradise. This campout was at a magical space. I apologize that I don't have the time at the moment to get the pics out of face borg over to here.

As soon as I get the wave version of my set I will post it though.

Terri Gross interviewing Ray Manzarek about Light My Fire

It's sad that Ray Manzarek just recently died of cancer. This morning I heard a great interview on NPR that I wanted to share with you.

It's not the whole interview but i bet you could find that, too. it's totally worthwhile:

More in Flyer adventures... Next month's party

I got up at 4 AM to get this little number rocking before work. It took me about 4 hours... Mostly going through all of photoshop's fonts then going to the internet trying to find the perfect robot fonts. I hope I rode the line between good robot font & legibility.

So my partner wants a "Zenomena Productions & FreeDub presents in the first line but I think the text will end up looking ridiculous or small or something. I am still just a newb graphic designer after years of trial & error & still no formal training... Maybe i haven't been creative enough yet? He asked me to try.

I do ask everyone what they think of my flyers though :-) You get a surprising amount of info this way. a lot of my friends are graphic designers as it turns out. or at least went to art school for it. Anyway... the adventures continue

Labor of Love Flyer, V2 (part duh)

So here's version two. We got a photo in more wishy colors :-) I must confess I like the way we're going. Especially when one considers I have zero graphic design skills. For the curious, the artists will go on the back once this front is approved.

Labor of Love Flyer in the making

So I'll admit I have no graphic design talent what so ever and zero formal training but I've learned a few things over the years of working parties with little budget.

Yes yes the text needs to be re-aligned. We need to add a bleed zone.... but...

I kinda like this flyer. This came from a shooting of the new bay bridge lights show... I wasn't so happy with the pics & I need to go re-photograph it but I kinda like this one! I don't know why... It's missing a lot of text. There will be a flyer back where the text will likely move... But here it is so far

I guess the added coolness is that I've been playing this party for almost 4.5 years now so it adds an extra smile for me :-)

This is my favorite set ever, Nighttime - 2 Dec 2012

I think the reason this set is my favorite is because of the experiences that went into it. I went to my favorite city in the whole world. I spent the first week of it sharing one of my best friend's first time in it.

Then I got the 3 weeks after to re-connect with my long-time first love of a city. I reconnected with a part of myself that I hadn't seen in a while.

I hope you like it as this one is near & dear to my heart.

Thank You!

I know some of you don't do face borg & I get that. As an up & coming DJ & new producer I really don't have much choice in the matter. So I wanted to say to those of you who didn't get my face borg message

Thank you *so much* for all your birthday e-mails, texts, chats, showing up to my sets, & all the love you've given me period. This past year has been amazing and I am blessed. I don't know what I did to deserve all of this but I am going to do my best to give it back to you with interest.

I love you guys! mwah
