The show went well, but was a little stressful at the beginning. The studio was locked and I had to go get the key. Not fun. Luckily, I made it back to the studio just in time to start the show.

It was my birthday. I'm officially 21 and I even had a glass of wine (it wasn't very tasty -- it was like drinking some sort of cleaning chemical, maybe just not the right wine for me?).

Wow, and I'm back on the air. It was a hectic night, getting used to the new studio and all and doing a million things at once. No serious technical difficulties, but I did play a couple of the wrong songs, even though it worked out pretty well in general. My timing was very good and I was able to improvise competently. I'm excited to hear all the new CDs I've burned and of course play them next week (which just so happens to be my birthday!).

I'm currently listening to the new Jaguar Love album. I blogged previously about this band, albeit briefly, and my disappointment. This album is seeming to be pretty hit-or-miss for me. I'm really enjoying some songs, but others are just awful or awfully boring. It's no avant-garde hardcore punk, more like an amped up indie rock band meets retro-rock. But not punky at all. That troubles me.

I played an awful lot of Crystal Castles tonight, but all were good songs and one was by request, which I was so glad to honor. I really loved that Boris track that was sandwiched by the CC songs. It was beautiful.
