new year's was low-key but good; the only oddity was taking a bottle of ketel one with us to 7dayspast's house and being the only one drinking from it. new year's resolution: no more pot. i'm just done with it.

my roommate's a good person to know. i owe her for opening my eyes up to the fact that there's more culture here in phx than i was giving it credit for.

last night we went for dinner at an asian restaurant called fate, with unusual cuisine and a dj playing from a collection about as eclectic as redstickman's (which says a lot, for those not familiar). i need to make them an ambient/experimental mix.

after that, we went to "my florist", an upscale cafe where we had dessert and listened to the resident jazz pianist field her interpretations of music ranging from phil collins to gershwin to coldplay. i thought i'd throw her a curveball by requesting "one night in bangkok", and she didn't know that one- but she threw one back at me with an incredible rendition of radiohead's "everything in its right place". i noticed my mouth was hanging open about 2/3 of the way through; she was that good, and my jaded ass is not so easily impressed lately.

it's times like this when a realization jumps up and smacks me in the face; i need furniture.

heh... i haven't even heard that mix. but honestly i don't think i care to. nothing against hybrid, just that song doesn't need to be messed with.

Done very well actually. The remix is actually what brought a lot more attention to that track...

i've been doing it for a long time... coming up on 8 years, and daily for most of that time period.

i have to admit that a lot of the time i was using it more as a "place to hide" than a relaxant, if that makes sense.

also, even after taking a couple week-long breaks at the end of the year and then trying it in between those, i don't get the euphoria anymore... it just makes me dumb/untalkative.

we'll see if that still holds true NYE2K5, i guess.

yeah, she writes reviews for citysearch as well- and was approached yesterday by the publisher of _desert living_ magazine (which i hadn't heard of, but it looks classy).
