not much to say, but so much to say at the same time

I've just been so caught up doing a bajillion other things that I have been too lazy/busy to really post about any of it.

Well, the LoveFest was fun, as always. I kept planning to post an entry with a bunch of photos from the event, but just never got around to it (usually because blog entries that have tons of photos take forever to put together). You can check out all of the photos I took that weekend here, otherwise, here are a few of the favorites that I snapped.






I'll try to eventually get the videos I took that weekend up onto Youtube and post them here, too.

E=mc2 (I'm too lazy to figure out how to put the 'squared' in its proper format, lol) will be throwing a party at the Black Box Cabaret for Halloween called The Return of Darkness. The lineup will be:

Viticus (Digital D&A Music)
Jaxxin & Paolo present: The Techslingers (E=mc2)
Matt D.
Katie Blades
Meadux (formerly known as DJ S0ulFree)

Oh, and I designed the poster & flyer for the event!
(my first party flyer/poster! woot!)

This is the 11 x 17 inch poster:


And this is the front & back to the 5 x 7 inch flyer (which, unfortunately, was finished too late to print).



It's been forever since I've done anything design-related, so it took me forever to get this done. Hopefully everything will fall together a little more effortlessly the next time I work on designing a flyer (or anything else for that matter).

Alright, time to get ready for work! I can't wait for the day when "work" will consist of DJing and graphic design, rather than verifying receipts at a hotel all night...

san francisco lovefest 2008: are YOU going???

Man, I really need to update this more often (or at least write something a little more prolific whenever I do update). Anyway, although I should be blogging about something important such as the Vice Presidential Debate, I just wanted to mention how excited I am to go to the San Francisco LoveFest again this year. For those who don't know, it's one of (if not THE) largest electronic dance music events in California (well, I guess Burning Man would probably be THE largest, now that I think about it). I've been going every year since it began in 2004 (when it came to the US as the Love Parade San Francisco), and I have left one of these events disappointed... Well, maybe disappointed at myself for not wearing more comfortable footwear, but definitely not disappointed with the music and energy the event delivers.


Who am I excited to see spin this year? Let's see...

(in no particular order)
Elite Force
Rennie Pilgrem
Armin van Buuren
Above & Beyond
DJ Mehdi
Kyau & Albert

My must-see list isn't as big as previous years, but if I think about it, for a majority of the time that I was rocking out in front of the various floats, I had no idea who the DJ was that was spinning (many of whom were local San Francisco DJs).

Well, here are some videos I took at previous Lovefests/LoveParades.

Carl Cox @ LPSF 2005

Ferry Corsten @ LPSF 2005

A random float @ SFLF 2006

Hybrid spinning at the SupperClub float @ SFLF 2006

Paavo & Tony of Above & Beyond @ the SFLF Afterparty 2006

See you all there!
