Regression to the 1980s? In uncertain times, we retreat to nostalgia. I bet we get some more posts here in the near future...

"Bridge To Your Heart"

I'm a little late on this, so let's call it a #tbt ;-)

Back when I was still well, my extended birthday ran all the way out to Monday, where we were allowed to take over the City Room at Grumpy's Downtown and throw a triple belated Gemini birthday party that saw something like 20 to 25 of you putting in at least brief cameo appearances and, by my count, at least 8 of us behind the turntables at one point or another, including some first timers! I don't know if I'm a proper teacher, but Allison and Kristen may be able to provide references. I think I played a whole 6 of my own selections, but here's everybody's stuff I remember (I THINK I handed both of Berni's off to Mark? If I forget anybody else's, hit me up and I'll make edits)

OK, typing it all out. I believe I may have spun:
Bjork - Human Behaviour (Wade)
Marvin Gaye - A Funky Space Reincarnation (Wade)
Michael Sembello - Maniac (Antonio)
Tina Turner - What's Love Got To Do With It? (Antonio)
Dead or Alive - Brand New Lover (Antonio)
Dead or Alive - Lover Come Back to Me (7" Edit)
K-X-P - Labirynth
The Soft Moon - Alive
The Danse Society - Say It Again (Extended Danse Mix)
LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out (Marley '91 12" Remix)
Vincent Montana Orchestra - Ride Like the Wind
The Heyettes - The Fonz Song (Danielle)
Unknown Artist - Impressionist Track (Danielle)
John Travolta - Oh Gosh, I Don't Remember Which One We Played...ask Allison and edit this entry later (Danielle)
Steely Dan - Peg (Chris)

ANYWAY I was clearly in need of sleep, didn't get it, and that's why I've been sick since pretty much the time I got home....but except for some very notable absences I wish I'd had the power to change, and most people's necessary leaving before closing I ALSO wish I'd had the power to change, I don't think I would have had things go any other way.

Oh but if you're still holding out on photos, GIMME :)

After I live another 357 days, let's do it all again!

Thanks again to Allison for patiently but persistently not letting me just ignore all our birthdays until we'd come up with something for us to do together and thanks again to Mason for pretty much making it technically possible because Grumpy's and I combined DID NOT have enough equipment to make this happen (although it WAS amusing seeing everyone have to use my neon green cheapo cans). My story - and I'm sticking to it - is there's no way this would have happened without all three of us and I'm so grateful we were all adventurous enough to embark on this as partners in crime.

Thanks also to Dan, Ryan and Reiner for the support in getting Grumpy's to let us boost their business on a Monday where they hadn't already booked Dan. :)

All in all a fantastic way to close out a solid week of birthday-ing and the second time I turned 30. Should be another good decade!

If I forgot to tag you, either we're not Facebook friends (TATIANA) or my old brain has slipped and I need a swift kick in the shin. Holler!

Another night, another "no adapter needed" double set. If you can read my handwriting, here's what I played. Thanks to Dan for the opportunity and not minding too much when I gave up and just started playing for me (see if YOU can figure out when that happened!), thanks to Hideo and Dave for probably saying "no" before I was asked ;-), thanks to Ryan for sticking it out to the end, and thanks to the other people who were around. Dan let me stretch out after the crowd died down but I STILL think he may have played more records cos his were WAY shorter than mine. OH and thanks Mom and Dad Gary for the bitchin' new professional crate they gave me for Christmas which I used for the first time tonight.

OK so one thing I DO want to say before the year is up is how grateful and thankful I am that I was able to realize maybe the one real goal I had set for myself for 2016, which was to finally unpack every single slab of vinyl I boxed up in California back in 2004 and get them mostly sorted and into some IKEA storage (thanks Dan and Julie for letting me borrow the truck!). This was done by February despite a longish interlude/vacation to go to the Super Bowl (HEY Aaron REMEMBER WHEN WE WENT TO THE SUPER BOWL THAT WAS SO COOL) and it wasn't too long before I was given the great privilege of being asked to join KFAI Vinyl Voices to share small parts of my collection with boutique crowds at fine venues such as Turf Club, Harriet Brewing taproom, Day Block Brewing Company, Palmer's Bar and Clubhouse Jäger. I have been very fortunate to spin nine times in 2016 with a lot of fine partners and one Turf brunch where I did four hours solo - and maybe even more incredibly, on multiple separate occasions people have stopped me and asked stuff like "hey, did you DJ the Turf Club brunch?" and say some very kind things about my curation. Of course, I also immediately went back to BUYING a lot of records - shout out to Raoul at Flashlight Vinyl for making it so easy to drop a lot of money on a lot of reasonably priced 12" singles I never knew I needed - but now my thinking is not only "do I want to hear this in my house?" but also "how bad do I want to play this for other people to hear?" which is a really cool feeling. Thanks to the folks I DJ'd with for their patience and support - Sean Hansen, Amanda Moon, Dana Bogema. Thanks to YOU if you put up with my repeated spam invites and especially if you came out to hear some tunes. (Fortunately and unfortunately there are too many folks to tag here, but you know who you are and I hope I see you again!) Above all else I cannot thank enough MISTER Cruise Control on KFAI, Mason Butler for giving me opportunity after opportunity to ruin his and Vinyl Voices' reputation, but not once when we DJ'd together did he ask me to fade out early (although I did do that myself - once - too many kazoos), or to not play another breakdance track, or to not follow up Pop Will Eat Itself with Boris Badenough - and I even managed to (pleasantly!) surprise him a couple times, which gave me an indescribably great feeling. Also, this isn't related but I bought an enormous keyboard from him and Gretch in 2016 as well. ANYWAY. There will be more invites to more nights in 2017, if all goes well, and maybe by the end of THAT year I'll have settled on a DJ name. Thanks as always for readin' this far and for your support of me and The KZiM Archives as they ever expand!
