hmph. Oh, and that setlist thing...

You know, sometimes I wonder how some peeps can live with themselves. How they can live with the evil/bad/mean things they do, the lives they affect, and the people they fuck up, and not take accountability for their actions. Not necessarily thinking of anyone in particular (kind of lying, kind of not), just thinking out loud.

Anyway, Right Round was kewl - 270 on the clicker, and lots of sound issues. It was special, but not as special as me face-planting on the stage that is now a good 5-6" higher than it was last month. I was trying to jump up to fix a lighting issue, and went ass over teakettle. Me and my big, dumb shoes, I swear...

I'm a lazy sod...

I realized recently that I haven't really posted anything of a personal nature for quite some time now. Just set lists and such, but nothing of substance. Nothing of matter.

I can be quite an overworked little monkey when I set my mind to it. Seriously - I literally work about 60-80 hours a week between my day job and my dj job - and with so much of it done on the computer, often the last thought I can bear is putting any more words into the world.

Anyway, I hear the lilting strains of the world's tiniest violin, playing just for all of the overworked Creative Agents / djs.

You know, though? I do have one tiny little thing I'd like to rage on for a couple of lines. That is, people I have known who have done me wrong, then get surprised when I am tired of dealing with their mess, and decide to cut them out of my life in one way or another. I wouldn't say I'm a huge grudge holder, but there are definitely a distinct handfull of individuals who fall into my lifetime grudge category. Sometimes I lean toward forgiveness, then the past pulls me right back into bitter focus. Don't really like to admit that about myself, but it's true.

I mean, I try to be a good person in my life, really I do, but being judgemental is so much more FUN!
