Today's post narrated with images found through a search for the term "wallawallabingbang"

Friday was a crazy internet day for me, inasmuch as the internet actually has days. We'd been sitting on a new mixtape for some time now and finally kinda leaked it... and then said "we should wait, actually"... but it was far too late by that point. We did it on commission for our buddy's blog but said blogger has some major technical issues currently and couldn't actually listen to the thing or post it. (Isn't a blogger without a computer just "a dude?") With no end to the digital drought in clear sight, we decided to go the "aw fuckit" route.

Long story short, I forgot to post the "Fog Machines and Laser Rays" weekend preview, which has essentially become shorthand for "hey, I'm DJing." Played at Bleached Black last night, and there was free pizza and it was generally an awesome time. I played Miami Bass Machine and a number of songs from the new mix, including Shaker Shake, Mickey Dreidels in Rome and Yo Yo Get Funky by Fast Eddie. My scheme to play a whole shitload of Miami bass was foiled when I correctly remembered that everybody loves the idea of Miami bass, but nobody except really freaky transsexuals have ever (in my experience) had Miami bass hold them enraptured on the dance floor for more than one song. So my apologies to Drac and Dom, who I had told would be privy to "Shake Them Titties," not as a song, but as a general social statement.

A good time was had by all- in no small part because there was a ton of free pizza, and as Jeffery astutely reasoned, everybody loves pizza. More accurately, nobody hates pizza... except the girl who I saw pass out in the arms of her boyfriend, who himself was so drunk that he fell down with her and they got broke off the hood of a parked car and then he started slapping her in the face like that's some way to actually wake up somebody who has just passed out. As a result, their entire crew was ejected from the premises, in an appropriately draconian disciplinary maneuver on the part of the management. Kudos.

OK, I'll chill because this is turning into a livejournal entry, and that shit's for Skinny, not for a reputedly bristling, emotionless ass like myself. This post is also rapidly spiraling towards "worst post ever" status, so I'll just slow my roll and get right to it.
