back in the big league

yes my dear friends, i have been mixing again, and it was SO GOOD…. hurrah, ppl were downstairs and it just seemed to get better and better (a few did drift i admit, but it wasn’t so noticeable).

yeah, so i’ve put in my order request to sapphires to try and get them to barter down to £1000 (thats for 2 technics sl1200m3d’s a vestax pmc270a and 2 ortofon concorde pro carts), i dunno if they will but i bloody hope so!

on the gowry front then, hows it going, well apart from a minor hickup on friday (damn hickups!) its going swimmingly :) :P and she seems to be happy too :P
what else we been up to, well not a lot really, just chilling, driving, drinking (ah! you see the order ;)) and sleeping… oh, and of course, having sex :P
hmmmmm…. i hope her mum don’t ever read this….

anyway, fathers day, a fantasic event, me having to get up early to make it back home to give darling father his present (a cool little man in a suit on a skateboard which is radio controlled! :)) but we didn’t have any batteries…. bummer….. :) and then just to dinner, before i left him and spent the rest of the day at cheryls :)
today, ah! yeah, my brakes went, the front one just locked up and was making nasty noises. i coulnd’t afford to fix it so dad kindly said he would pay.

so this morning i took it to the garage, come back at end of day and it all done :) woo hoo! ask dad how much it was ……. £160 madness! they changed the pads, drums and cleaned everything up! wow!!

anyway, i was happy cause the car was fixed, so i got in a drove it off….. like, 1 minute (perhaps even less) it was doing it again! so i took it back tro the garage…

hang on says the guy, and calls another chap over, who promptly jacks the car up (30 seconds) rotates the wheel (2 seconds) scrapes dirt off the inside (5 seconds) lowers it down (1 second) and then proceeds to say its now fixed!!!


well as it turned out, the brake fluid seal was broken and leaking…… so i guess the moral is, believe the signs :) hehehehehe…. what if i’d been on a hill :)
hahahahahahahahaha :rolleyes:
anyway, i’m in a hyper mood now and need to go ring gowza to proclaim my undying love….. or something like that :)

hello to the borkas!

well, i am at the moment quite drunk so the spelling may be a little off, but i am trying my best ok!

taken rest of week off to spend it with gowry :) and as had gone to bed so late, slept until like 1:30, but i was reading fhm in the bathroom until 3 or summit, so like a lazy start to the day.

then whilst gowry was washing i went into the basement and started on my mix machine for about an hour…… OH MY GOD!!! it was the best i had ever fucking mixed, it was fucking ace on top fuck it ruled!

yeah, it started of with general trance and stuff, but then got onto the hard house and was banging and i ruled and its all cause of the headphones (and cause i am just great)

woo hoo! then we went to argos to get a record holder and the common and stuff but we had to leave to get borka (yeah i know i am writing shit but i am drunk ok :)) and then she came round and……

AHHHHHH! slow down!!!!!!

OK, borka came around but i wanted to build my record holder (which was £34.99 from argos) so i set to work, unfortuantely though it didn’t fit and so i need to take it back tomorrow, damn!

borks needed to work on her project, so we went upstairs and started working through c++ (which i had not learnt before), but we soon got sidetrakced and started taking loads of photos :D 8) (which will soon be uploaded)

damn, well, i dont think i should write anymore, but i will say i’ve been hacing a great nite with gow and its a shame it all has to end (cause parents coming back and all) and i will miss it.

oh, new accounts for inetfx….

woo hoooooo! xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

what a wicked day!

today has been cool, got loads done and, well i’ll tell you later on.

Had to get up to go airport to take family away to greece (i think :D) but it was ok, cause they wanted me up at 9, and i had gone to bed early cause i cant talk to gow anymore cause she ain’t paid her bill.

So like, that was pretty uneventful cause it was just a straight drive there, but i did notice that the wheels on the car are fucked as they were shaking like crazy, hopefully though the new alloys will solve that.

Got back around 12:45 and went to pick up cheryl (who was comig round to hear me christen my new headphones) she was asleep, so tickled her until she got out of bed :)
Came round and OH MY GOD, the headphones (sony mdr-v700j) are the ABSOLUTE BOMB! they are so clear and the mixing just went SO WELL! itr made me so glad i started it, as each mix was just flowing and it was in time and I ROCKED!

Sorted out some new photos for this site after b4 taking cheryl back home and going to the post office to collect a parcel for mum (shame she just missed it huh).

gowry who was supposed to have left at around 6, still had not arrived by like many hours later, so i just sat on the sofa watching the tv.

It turns out she hadn’t been able to go out for the day at all as shima’s car had broken down and they just stood by it all day :)
oh! reminds me, MTV have this kewl features called SMS vote or summat, they put two videos head to head and you have to sms your votes. then you can send messages also and they appear on the screen, its cool!

anyways, gowry arrived eventually with my replacement record (the 6th one!) but it still had the same damn problem :( cant be arsed to go into it. so like, now shes here and in bed cause shes little and doesn’t have much energy :)
hehehehehe… anyway, shower awaits, anything i forgot i;ll report tomorrow :) LAAAATTTEEEERRRZZZZZ!
