TWO FUCKING FRIDAYS IN A ROW??? It's a rhetorical question. Knowing how many friends/fans/dj ho's Mike has, there was no doubt in my mind that this party is going to kick some serious ass. A whole bag of ass. And so it did.
Turns out that the completeness I felt at the barn party last friday can feel even more complete. All you need is a full set close friends on the dancefloor in front of you, dancing their asses off like there's no tomorrow (and in some respects, that would be correct), some cake on the turntables (Otis was aiming for Twitch's head, honest!), plenty of good, moment defining tunes (LAMB's GORECKI IN DA HOUSE!!!!), a room-full of pure emotions and singing people, and a guy that's leaving us so we can all feel blessed when and if he does eventually come back.
Bouncing my ass off to Mike's set despite the sauna-like condtions was easier than ever. Apparently not only for me, as the whole goddamn floor was pumping for the entire 1.5 hours of his sonic insanity. I mean INSANITY
!!!! Can I say much more? And if I could, what cliches would I use? Oh, I got one - HAD TO BE THERE!!!!
I mean really, if you were there - you KNOW what i'm talking about. For the rest of you, the recording of the set, complete with cartridge slides, shouts of joy, and everyone and their mothers trying to get on the mic to express their appreciation for Meehow, will be available on-line, sometime within the next few... years (<--- i'm being realistic, hehe)
Plenty of pics and videos coming your way as well I believe. I still got the strobe-like action of many cameras shooting stuck in my head.
Thanks to Satori for playing "It's Hot!", a yet another moment-defining tune, and one of my all time favourites, dating back to '96ah!
Happy Birthday and MANY Thanks to Nick/Twitch for organizing every motherfucking aspect of this party. Teh venue, teh decor, teh flyers, all - great - work! The idea was for it to be his b-day bash, but as soon as I mentioned Mike's approaching departure he selflessly turned it into a THERAPIST FAREWELL PARTY. There is not enough respect in the world to cover that gesture Nick, YOU ARE A WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL PERSON!!!! I know you enjoyed the cake, hehe, and I absolutely loved spinning 'longside the one like TWITCH!!! You my ni..a, and you knows it!
Much respect to everyone that came out and got the place rammed with postive energy, I'm not about to list everone I know, but you were all there, and it was a great pleasure seeing all of yous.
Shouts go out to Highsteppa, props for going ahead with your plan to get ripped beyond walking, and seeing the plan through to completion!
Shouts go out to Allie/TT - sooo, what do Mike's tonsils taste like? I always wanted to try frenching him, but didn't wanna fuck up what we have, hehe... Nice with the "going away present"...
Big smiles go out to Kelly/Turtle, and my new found "biggest fans" - Brad and Nicky, you guys rock! ROK!
If I have any more thoughts later, I'll be sure to share them with you. Right now i gotta rest up for a yet another night of sweaty, out-of-control drinking action. Actually, all of this does not stop until Tuesday, then I fucking retire. And get a job. (Yeah, riiight...)
