A good show this week. Good timing, good music, a good time. No show next week, I'll be out of town. Going to see Marnie Stern and "celebrate" Thanksgiving (mmm... pumpkin pie). Then only two shows left... it's really winding down. I should blog more, but I don't have time and I would actually have to put effort into it. Who wants to read a boring, thoughtless blog?

I really messed up at the end of hour one, there. I seem to often have the problem of cuing up the wrong track. And this time I ended up playing 2 tracks by Blink and totally throwing off my timing.... not fun. Though I love that "Rivers And Tides" song. Awesome.

I forgot to mention on the show some upcoming concerts: Boris & Baroness in Cleveland, OH this Sunday the 16 at the Grog Shop (really wish I could go to this one because Boris is GREAT live -- sooo loud) and Marnie Stern in Cleveland, OH at the Beachland Ballroom/Tavern on Nov. 25 (definitely going to this, super psyched about it).

I was really glad to finally get to play the Ex on the show. What a great band! I need more of their albums (I'm listening to "Starters Alternators" right now).

I think perhaps I should retire Flying Lotus on the show until the final-best-of-'08 show. I've been playing "L.A." so much.

It's nice to get back to normal on the show this week. Last week was Halloween and the week before that I got pre-empted by sports. I played the wrong Marnie Stern track!! I'm always writing down the wrong track numbers! That track I did play was pretty cool, though. I loved that Daedalus track, that new album is awesome! Lovin' the jazz, too. More jazz next week.

Things went well. I was very relaxed during this show and glad to be doing a full show this week. I'm surprised how often my show seems to fall on holidays -- Valentine's, Earth Day, My Birthday, etc. It's fun (and actually very quick) to plan shows for holidays. Good luck to trainee Ashley who operated the board for hour 2.

Next week, back to normal..... no more MMM.
