weird day.. spent most of it and the night.. in some narcoleptic half conscious daze.. (hmm.. I wonder, can too much caffeine and no food, actually make you sleepy?)
I get home.. check me e-mails.. G man buzzes me on MSN - "hey you want free beer + food?" um.. HELL YEAH.. so, I shoot out.. and wind up gatecrashing some official "music biz adelaide" launch party.. with a bunch of dudes in suit's.. and the state premiere rocks up to do a speech (yawn)..
so, there we are downing free beers, surrounded by all the "important" people of the Adelaide music industry.. (note: do "MUSIC" and "INDUSTRY" really fit in the same sentence?), and I'm the dude looking like a sore thumb.. coz I'm the only guy who actually LOOKS like a musician.. ;)
(yes.. look, OVER THERE.. it's.. the HAIRY GUY! YAAAAY!)
still, I managed to recognise the DJ there.. "DJ TRiP".. cool dude.. does all his live stuff on an oldskool amiga + some vinyl decks.. I told him this funny story - when I had that car accident last year, I had his music playing in my portable CD player (for those who didn't hear the story.. I wuz riding a bike.. hit a car head-on taking a turn into a side street, went stunt-man over the roof, smashing the windscreen and hit the road landin' on me back.. the funny thing wuz, the CD player I had on me.. didn't skip a beat :-).. anywaze.. when I said I wuz playing his music at the time.. he wuz actually proud of that.. how odd?.. "things to be proud of - people choose YOUR music.. to have a near fatal experience with.. YAY!"
then again.. I almost DID get killed when I accidently decided to let me friend Stuckey play "SYSTEM of a DOWN" in his car stereo.. and it only took the 1st song for him to run a red light at 150 km/h with me screaming like a maniac.. "STTOOOOOOOOPPP!!!"
hmmmm.. perhaps I should have a top 10 list for that..
