greetings everybody!

im changing some things here and there so thnks 4 yr patience *. the [tag-box] thing wasnt working so well lately [made the page load real slow and suspicious like ~:(-oK
and i need to figure out a better way to write one into da skrip--at least so that it isnt ALL up TOP and taking up so much space - I think of this webpage thing as having alot to do with personal aesthetics ya know? i also like simplicity-( i do miss the immediacy of being able to check it, connect, conversate--like, hmm did anyone write anything clever lately? but anyway, while i ponder this... if you "view my profile" my "tag/comment ADDRESS" is there!! -
you can write to me in the meantyme y'all
- : ) Well, enjoy the pictures and rants, and thanks for checkin it all out!

Bizzarre Bazaar at Chop Suey last summer (MP3 post)

Here are some rough sounding mixes (including record skips, false starts, and unexpected rewinds) from the Bizarre market last summer at Chop Suey. Proceeds went to support WRIR's fundraising drive just before we got on the air Thanks to Tommy of Broadcastatic for saving this file for me and uploading it on his site--

Happy (Lunar) New Year!! Year of the Rooster !

(~The Green Wooden Rooster, as some refer to it) (I found this one on ebay, nice! this one is actually more turquoise and sparkly than green, but theres some green in them feathers... )
the seller writes:
"This is an "Oaxacan" carved ROOSTER size: 13" length x 7" in heigth x 5.5" in width."
"it was created by the world famous artist Enrique Ramirez of Arrazola, a pueblo located in the Central Valley of Oaxaca; Mexico .."
i like it, especially with the blue and purple air jordans on.
