the ghost of friday night past
i should be writing a paper now. i should be well into it. i should be in the middle of typing a paragraph, supporting the topic sentence with a quote from a peer reviewed scholarly journal article, or "unpacking" said quote, with a smart and precise analysis that breaks down the main subject and eases forth into the next sentence with a steady, intellectual flow. i started it earlier, the paper, or at least i wrote the outline, but i exhausted myself with doing that and had to take a break. so i rolled a spliff and ate some food then smoked a couple cigarettes. now im drinking a beer and watching Inside the NFL and typing this instead of writing my paper.
you should listen to this mix [two parts]. its Greg Wilson live at Apt., here in new york about a month and a half ago. i was there on that friday night and it was truly inspiring. he came on at 1am and the floor was only half filled when he started. half hour into his set the place was getting sweaty and there wasnt much room left to shuffle. an hour into it the place was jammed and all the heads were going mental for every tune he dropped. his only US appearance and an opportunity to get floored by the grooves of heavy funk re-edits. highly recommended. if for nothing less than when he drops the Amerie "One Thing" vocal under an elecro beat with the "Sympathy For the Devil" bass line on top. thanks to Deep House Page for the link.
so listen to that. let me know what you think. ill get at you cats later.
