song stuck in my head

Whereas, breakbeats have been the missing link connecting the diasporic community to its drum woven past

damn thing won't leave my head, and I don't have any copies of it available! ARGH!

the only copy I had was on a mix set 6Q did, that I can't find my copy of right now.. I'm sure I have it *somewhere*, but I can't find it right now.

So, I went today and paid Tobin for his services. I think he'll be quite happy with his cut.

On the way there, however, I ran into someone I hadn't seen since she was living in Paris, many years back. I got her phone number and we shall be endeavouring to do lunch sometime next week. Nothing special, just a "catching up" social thang.

After I did the drop-off I wandered around and went picture hunting. I tried an idea I've been toying with in my head for a while now, and I'm not entirely dissatisfied with the results. I would post them here for you, were it not for the fact that I forgot to take the cable with me, so such must wait till I can get my proverbial "act" together.

I then went to Jamba for dinner, they have some new pinapple flavors available right now for the season, I was pleased with the option I had. I can't recall the exact name, but it's something like Pinappalooza or somesuch. It was yummy, whatever they want to call it.

Following that I had a complete breakdown of will and went to The Beat to peruse the used CD selection. 4 CDs and $32 later, I left with some pieces I've been wanting, so I guess it was worth it. Faithless Sunday 8PM, Moby Early Underground, Mr. Bungle Disco Volante, and one I hadn't heard of before but looked interesting: Blue Order: A Trance Tribute to New Order. The last two were impulse buys, I'll readilly admit, but I was feeling rather keen after the earlier bout of theraputic photography.

I really must go picture-hunting more often. I had forgotten how great it feels afterwards, just wandering with the camera 'round your neck and snapping pictures whenever your eye catches something.

I'm really looking forward to the day 25MP DSLRs hit the market. Then I'd be able to actually do this for fun and profit, instead of just fun alone. :) I mean, the focus will allways be what *I* want from the pictures (this is a hobby, and will allways remain so), but if I can convince someone to give me a hundred or so for a print of something as well, all the better!
