music and stuff like that
so my theory set on tuesday actually went really well. I've recently been having a bit of a crisis of faith in myself, dj-wise. I've taken on an apparently herculean task, and it can be slow going.

on the upside, I really did enjoy my set at the campout over memorial day. I did dj scheduling and gave myself the closing set - which seems (to me) like a plum spot, but no one else *ever* wants it (honestly I have only ever been able to give it to one other DJ and she did great but most of 'em don't appreciate what a key time it is, and bitch about having to go last) so it's also just easier. that went REALLY well and even the tracks I suspected no one (but me) would like really went over. so, that helped. but, I'm still not there yet, and I just want to hide out and practice until I am!

unfortunately there are a number of other things I also have to attend to, many of a higher priority (work, making dinner, home maintenance stuff, etc) and then at night I'm tyord - and also really REALLY would prefer to practice when no one has to hear the bad mixes.

but, yes... it is coming along. and I have ben receiving encouragement, from both likely and unexpected sources. so, that helps.

I've been really quiet here lately. part is that I have a tendency to clam up unless I have something nice to share, and part has just been an energy issue, and the fact that a lot of my computer time lately has been devoted to music stuff - online research, and I'm also cataloging my many CD compilations in a database so I can more easily locate (and, for that matter, know) which tracks I have and where they are. I'm still here, just quiet. also not always reading as much, so if you made a big announcement via LJ I would love to hear about it! you can ping me through my userinfo here, or through the bunnywarez site.

also, bummed that I can't afford to get to my sister's wedding... stupid money. I just looked at Amtrak and there is no way! and flying, especially flying alone, is even worse (plus UGH AIRPORTS). so, no go. dammit.

Yay for dj'ing! and yay for you! I'm glad the set went well over memorial day. I'm sorry to hear you're gonna miss your sister's wedding. :( that sucks.

hugs to you!

don't give up! breaking new ground is always harder than just playing circuit house for chump change. if you need anything re-edited for better dj play, give me a shout! i love doing stuff like that.

wedding travel

not sure where your sister lives, but have you checked out installing the Southwest Ding! application? It allows you to put in up to 10 cities you are interested in flying to from destination airports, and then lets you know when there are special fares to those areas. You can get some really great deals.

Seems like there are actually many good flight deals these days. Don't give up!
