    HaHa, first one home!

    <toot own horn mode on> Gather round youngsters, BigBadBaldy has a tale to spin. A tale of endurance and more importantly, love for letting the music move your soul and body. Time: 7am. BBB shows up to work a fistfuck 17 hour shift in a busy kitchen. Chef. Mega responsibilities.

    Time: 12am, BBB knocks back a few pops to smooth out the 85 Cokes and 73 americanos he drank all day and heads out to a promising party. He's old.. how old? REAL old (32). He knows he has to work at 7am the next day, but the promise of FINALLY catching the dukes spin is enough to motivate (even WITH an inconvenient heat rash on his botty) him to motor out to an old-skool warehouse party.

    Time: 1:30am. BBB makes the scene. Sees several OLD friends from days gone by, and proceeds to shake his ever loving ass for a good 3 hours STRAIGHT. Several people tell him to stop dancing so hard, as the heat he's creating is beginning to cave in the ceiling. When reached for comment, KF had this to say:

    "Yeah, he's not all that. What we need is a motorbooty showdown"(artistic embellishment)

    <toot own horn mode OFF>

    Wow. Seriously, what a great fukking party. Even though it was like dancing inside a volcano, it really reminded me of the vibe at the old warehouse parties I used to go to on Sudbury St back in '88/'89. Wicked tunes, different styles, no attitude, almost NO sketch factor, and only one asshole to deal with curtly (To: the fuck who gave me a hard time for getting him the FUCK out of my way (at first politely, then forcefully) so I could refill my water when I was obviously a BILLION degrees, hyperventillating and dehydrated, BITE ME.). Lotsa smiles, LOTS of friendly peeps who I don't know from a hole in the ground, GOOD FUCKING TUNES, GOOD FUCKING TIME.

    This week, after not going out for the last three months or so (due to an increasing dislike for the "club" atmosphere), and then hitting Element on Thurs and then this has really reaffirmed my love for dancing as well as the need to seek out intimate more "unknown" parties. To those responsible, thank you so much. Great time.

    @m: You fuck, you owe me. I lost about 5 lbs dancing NON-STOP to your set, and I demand a FULL and PROPER headline set from you two.

    ..as well as tequila.

    I tried to catch you at the end to give you a pound, but you slipped away. Props to you an KF for good tunes (albeit with minor tech difficulties) and BOUNDLESS energy.

    KF: I know you don't really post here, but you fukking RAWK! I've admired your dancing and energy for the last couple of years, as I see you EVERYWHERE, and you didn't disappoint tonight. Great tracks, you two.

    Booty Bits: Yay! Of all my first Tribers to meet in one week (you and @m), I'm really glad you were the first one to ever just come up to some big bald motherfucker and ask if I was BigBadBaldy. I've always liked your style, and wondered when someone would do just that. Good to chat with you briefly.

    To the curly haired dude who gave me pulls from his scoobysnak, thanks! Comes around, goes around, naw mean?

    To all who didn't come: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You drool.


    Fuck, I LOVE DANCING!!!

    YEE HAW~!

    Damn, that was a fun evening! So many asses were shakin', I couldn't stop smiling!

    Good seein' so many familiar faces and meeting a few new ones! BBB - i went outside after our set to 'indulge' my green thumb with a small posse. I looked for you when i came back in but couldn't find you either...

    GINORMOUS thanks to the folks who put on this party (and own the space!) - we were honoured to play it.

    tech care,

    Definitely an affirming night. I went there not knowing what to expect. Worse, I went alone and not knowing if I was going to know a soul. Within a few minutes of getting there, I ran into a girl that I met in Australia and things sort of rolled from there. Wicked music. Wonderful chatty people all night.

    I did have one odd experience. 2 guys started talking to me and the folks I was with about what drugs we were on. Being that the only drug I had imbibed was Dunhill lights, I told him so. However, these dudes seemed pretty interesting. I wonder if there is a NOW or EYE article in the works or if I am just paranoid.

    Great tunes all night. Like many, dancing was not as viable for me as I might have liked. However, I had a blast listening and chatting and meeting lots of good people. I even got mortgage advice!

    Nice one! I hope that whoever is mailing invites out will think of me in the future. bobbythrust@yahoo.ca

    Thanks for having us! Brian

    yes, this party was muchos funnos!

    i arrived with two friends, based solely on an email i had received two days earlier.

    i couldn't resist, seeing as how Abacus was on the bill, and the dukes would be playing too.

    i had kinda been waiting for something different, small and exciting to fall into my lap, and it did.

    the space was pretty cool and i kept trying to figure out what it would look like as someone's living space. however, it needs more bathrooms and way more fans for another event like this.
    the music was awesome, and that remix of Sunshine of Your Love that Abacus threw down at the end of his set was killer.

    i met BigBadBaldy, miguel and a nice guy named adam...all by chance. that was pretty sweet [​IMG] p.s. miguel, e-mail me and we'll do lunch.

    i saw Little1 (i think thats your nickname. the guy in the white checked shirt who i spoke to when i first showed up, we'd met at the tribe lunch)
    and nelf was doing it up proper, dancing his patootie off.

    all in all, a great night out.

    thanks to the promise, re:think and scratch free for giving me just what i wanted [​IMG]

    Wicked Party!

    Props to Dave and Irving again for such a wicked jam!

    The Dukes Rocked it once again!

    It was hot as hell in there to the point that my clothes have salt stains all over them!

    I hope to see everyone at the next Promise party on Friday December the 7!

    oops! didn't see your second post...! yeah I had a good time, unfortunately I'd worked all day and was tired and _really_ stoned by the time I got there so I left pretty early.

    Was a truly rocking party. I wasn't too suprised, as anything to do with the Promise boys and Chocolate usually turn out well. Their parties are notorious for having really cool people, and good tunes.

    It was a bit hot there, but I shouldn't complain. They did, after all, invite everyone in to their home.

    I hear there's another one in the works for January!

    BigBadBaldy TRIBE Member

    Was that you I was talking to at about 5am when there were like 10 people left in the club? If so, I don't think we ever even mentioned Tribe.. if my memeory is fucked, I'm sorry! No insult intended, just a slightly addled brain. [​IMG]


    THAT was a great set.
