>>_IN LA FOR NYE

I'll be in the Los Angeles area for New Year's Eve (from Dec 29 - Jan 2). If you have any events going on during that time I'd love to come play. Drop me a line.

>>_ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS TUNES

If you're like me, then you're fairly well burned out on the standard Christmas songs (with the exception of Bing Crosby's "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" and Andy Williams singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year"--which will both be awesome until the end of time.)

Luckily, one mashup compilation and one mix are offering everyone a little something different to listen to. Check out DJ BC's "Santastic" mashup compilation and DJ Riko's "Merry Mixmas 2005". Ahhh. That's better.

>>_FINALLY GOT AN IPOD

I suppose I've been a very, very good girl because for my birthday I received the new 60GB iPod video. I am so overwhelmed by its awesomeness that I'm almost afraid to use it.

I've already ordered up a nice case and am just trying to get all the media set up. Which takes some doing. Unfortunately, this model iPod doesn't take firewire and my motherboard is only USB 1.1 (hey, I put my money toward other gear) so I'll need to get a USB 2.0 PCI card. Once that's done, I'll be primed to put more than just audio on there.

Any suggestions on great downloads to trick out my iPod would be appreciated!

>>_SAN FRANCISCO NEWS FEATURES CLUB COVER STORY

The front page headline (front page! headline!) on today's San Francisco Chronicle reads "Club Scene Grows Up". (And to think locals make fun of our city's major newspaper! What about the hard-hitting weeklong coverage of Burning Man?)

Ok, I should be grateful our local media even considers covering club- and alterna-culture. Maybe I'm just bitter because this article includes statements like, "Raving with the masses is out. Sipping in selective company is in." This city has already been plagued by wussy tastes in parties and music--and now I'm being told the trend is to slow down even more?? Fine, give me a pillow and a blanket and let's just take a nap instead of going out. Wussies.
