I'm never gonna dance again

No, that's not my foot, but close!I hate only being able to watch half of ProjRun before heading in to work. Once at work, I'll peruse the usual blogs and, inevitably, I will find out who got auf'd. No big whoop. I'm not one of those spoiler queens who insists that knowing how a story ends ruins the actual telling of the story. I don't, however, believe that I can watch poor Allison's dreams become shattered in the final half hour of last night's episode. Add to that the ridiculosity of Benji winning So You Think You Can Dance, and you might just get a whiff of my pungent ire.

Oh, that wasn't my ire that smelled so bad--it was my feet (which have, at times, smelled of broccoli).


Speaking of my feet, my left foot looks like a ham hock. I thought I had Fred Flintstone feet before my mysterious injury, but now I could easy power a prehistoric vehicle to the drive-in (if only there were someone with whom I could park--hell, I'd even settle for an order of ribs that tips the car over). How did I get said injury? I'm guessing a pair of dress socks that were worn all day Saturday that are quite constrictive--but I literally (and I mean literally, not figuratively) have no idea how it happened.

Even though the results of SYTYCD are disappointing (Travis should have totes won), I think that Risa, her sisters, and I are going to attend the September 12th
SYTYCD performance at the Paramount. Tickets are priced $37-$50. I say, spend the extra $13 bucks, but we'll see.

So that's on September 12th. Two days later, the third annual
Decibel Festival will be underway. The line up is pretty impressive this year. Green Velvet, Telafon Tel Aviv, The Dead Texan, Apparat, Andreas Tilliander, and Alex Smoke, to name a few.
If you're a househead and you're coming to town for this festival, you're more than welcome to crash on our couch. We accept beer, pot, sex, or cleaning as forms of payment.

And since I'm talkin' 'bout music again (funny how that happens), here's the latest:

OKDJ vol. 7

I know I said I wouldn't release another one until I figure out Acid, but I just don't get Acid. I mean, do I have to just work two songs together and save it as a new track then add another song? And why can't I change the tempo?
Plus, I had all this awesome music to share. Oh, and I've been really bored down here in the vault.
So, you get more music! Yippie!

Here's the tracklisting:

Ladyflash (Simian Mobile Disco Mix) - The Go! Team
Toop Toop (Oliver Koletski Mix) - Cassius
SadomasochistUS - Creme de Menthe
Weird Fantasy - B-Series
Cuz of You (Mark Grant Mix) - Green Velvet
The Minimum of Life - Joakim
Wake Up (Justus Kohncke Remix) - Lo-Fi Fnk
Bells feat. Linda Lamb - Vitalic
You Take My Breath Away (Mylo Mix) - The Knife
Shemale (Black Strobe Mix) - Sir Drew
In White Rooms (Elecktrochemie Remix) - Booka Shade
Les Djinns (Trentemoller Remix) - Djuma Soundsystem
Young Folks - Peter Bjorn and John

If you'll notice, I reviewed the first track
over here. You have been keeping up, right?
And, not to toot my own horn, I think this mix is easily one of my best. Hard to go wrong with Vitalic, Green Velvet, The Knife, Trentemoller, Mylo, Joakim, and Booka Shade, though.

your foot is yucky. it sort of resembles this problem dirty homeless people get when they don't shower and lack proper nutrients...perhaps its time for a scrub down and a trip to the health food store....

Jesus what happened? How could you not know what you did?

Oh, that's not my foot guys! If you mouse over the picture it says that its just a pic I found on the webs. I can still wear my shoes and crap.
So, since its not anywhere near the scale of that picture, perhaps you can imagine that I have no idea how it happened. Cuz, well, I don't. Unless I fell down drunk or something--which is very possible.

I feel lied to about the foot photo.

That aside, tell me more about your Boston trip! We can have lots of fun. We will have tickle fights, do each other's hair, and talk about boys!

Sorry, y'all. Didn't mean to do any misleading. But if you do a search for "swollen ankle" that's what'll come up.
And now to make my predicament even less consequential--my foot never hurt--it just kind of, um. . . got swoled.
And Prof, looks like it is a go for me. Sept 22-24. I'll email you all the deets but if things are wonky then, that's cool, too!

A happy ending. I saw the foot foto a few days ago and was going to leave a Dude, That's Messed Up comment, so I'm glad to know it's not yours. I've gotten mysterious foot injuries twice in the past few years but without visible swelling. Just sudden limpiness. Curious.

Thanks for the OKDJs. Like.

You should check out Tiger Baby and IAMX (Sneaker Pimps Chris Corner's new band)... I think you'd dig both of them big time... not just because I'm their publicist ;-)

Hey thanks Rey! I'll check 'em both out fer sure!
