Jesus. I missed Ladyhawke so much. What was it? Like three years ago that I was playing the Sunship remix of "My Delirium." Like. At every party I DJed. In every car I drove. On every walk I walked. Etc. Jeez. Talk about a jammy. And there was "Paris Is Burning" and the Cut Copy remix of "Paris Is Burning" and "Back of the Van" and "Magic" and blah, blah, blah. What I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty darned happy about this whole upcoming Ladyhawke album thing.

So last night I DJed with Musa. Who, by the way, is totally super rad. Like. I met her a week ago when we DJed Pebbles's bounce party at Sway. And she played "Nolia Clap" and I was all, "Gosh darn. I, like, totally forgot about this song!" And then last night. She played "Move Ya Body" and I was all, "Gosh darn. I, like, totally forgot about this song!" I love people that both A) remind me of awesome songs I'm too stupid to remember and B) don't openly mock my Taylor Swift tee.
Which reminded me. The kid DJ Tuggle is now living in New Orleans. Where Ms. Musa is from/currently resides/etc. And so I realized that I haven't been to the kid's SoundCloud page in a second. And lo and behold, a useful lil' "Rack City" edit! Well gosh darn!

I learned to DJ in Sydney. On CDJs. So one day I opened for Fashen back in the U.S. of A. And I'm all, "ZOMG, how craze! He's, like, my favorite!" So I get to the venue and I'm all, "Err, where my CDJs at?" And they're all, "Um, CD-Whats?" So that was the first time I used turntables. And it was wild embarrassing because. Well. Fashen's kind of a beast. And I was. Well. Kind of abysmal. So then we go to the after-party, right? And we both DJ there, OK? And he's got 1200s and I've got Pioneer CDJ 1000s. So everyone's happy. And you know what? It was still kinda embarrassing. Because. Well. He's Fashen and I'm just some nerd with wobbly glasses, an ugly blog, and a scented candle addiction.
So anyways the moral of the story is that Fashen is like the nicest dude ever and I had a great time hanging out with him that one time four or so years ago and oh did I forget to mention that this here single of his is like super tite? (Turbz and Free Magic are also really nice and both of their mixes are really good and I dunno Foamo but this here song is neat-o mosquito.)

I'm gonna eat an everything bagel right now. Plain cream cheese. Wash it down with some orange juice and vitamins. Afterwards I'll take a Zicam. Finally I can do some work. Then I'm gonna eat some baked beans on wheat toast. Wash it down with some water. Take another Zicam. Get back to work. Take a third Zicam. Grub on a Juicy Lucy with fries. One last Zicam. And boom! Asleep by ten. This, friends, is my dream for Thursday, January 26, 2012.

OK. I have a problem. You remember Sixpence None the Richer, right? Duh, right. So yea. I was running through their greatest hits compilation last night. (Spoiler: stick to "Kiss Me" and "There She Goes.") And I'm chatting with some cats about it. And for some reason I keep calling them "Sixpence and None the Richer." What in the wide world is wrong with me? How can I so consistently mistype the name of one of the most influential bands of my childhood?
Also. They're from New Braunfels. One time I played a USTA Team Tennis tournament at the John Newcombe Tennis Ranch there. Which is a pretty darned interesting tidbit about my life, right?!

Bachelor Ben is a C-side Rafael Nadal. Egg everything bagels are just as good as everything bagels. Daniela Hantuchova and Andy Roddick should've won the 2012 Australian Open. Panda Toes is one of the ugliest music blogs in the game. That said, most music bloggers can't seem to figure out the difference between "then" and "than" and "there" and "their" and "they're" and blah, blah, etc. My boogers have been really dry lately. I need to shave. But I'd rather pet my cat. All three of these songs are free downloads. Ugh, you're welcome.

So my landlord texts me all, "OMG! Bed bugs on the third floor! WTF?!" And I'm all, "Ugh, WTF?!" So I search my room. Nothing. And I hit her back. And she's all, "JK, totes weren't actually bed bugs. Just lady bugs. But the exterminator's coming on Monday, so you need to GTFO bro." So I stuff my cat into his little kitty carrying case. Which of course takes two full hours because he's throwing a hissy fit. And he's hissing at me all, "WTF, Greg?!" And I take him to NSR and Turbz's crib because there are toxic fumes and the such at my spot. And I bring them bagels because NSR hates me and Turbz hates cats. Anyways. So NSR just cut his hand on one of the bagels, so that's funny. And Greg the Cat is super peeved and shook, so that's sad. And this Plastic Plates song is a free download, so that's super tite.

So Wikipedia was protesting SOPA and PIPA and the like the other day. But my boy Spenser is a technological genius. And he figured out how to access Wikipedia on his phone. So naturally the first page we chirp at is Mac Dre's entry. And oh my dear, sweet goodness. The list of dude's nicknames. Is. Like. Yo:
Mac Drizzle, Mac Dreezy, Mac Dregos, Mac Drevious, Thizzelle Washington, Furl, Furly, Mr. Furly, Muhammad Al Boo Boo, Andre Macassi, The Genie of the Lamp, Thizz King, Pill Clinton, Ronald Dregan, The Make it Happen Cap'n, Andre McEnroe, Andre Maccassi, The Thizzard of Oz, The Mac Named Dre, Dre Van Halen, The M.A.C. D.R.E, and Thizzy Marley.
OK. Yea. That's all. Thizz in peace, Mac Dre.

So I started writing a post about how I opened for Telephoned (who in turn were opening for Jason Derulo) two or so years ago. And then I realized that I'd written "Sammi Bananas." Are you kidding me? Not even "Sammie," which makes marginally more sense. Like. It's seriously gotten to a point where my default is to type S-a-m-m-i and just leave it at that? Christ almighty. I hate you, Sammi Sweetheart.

I've posted like fifteen or fifty or so of Turbz's edits and mixes and such. So there are, like, ten million pictures of him on Panda Toes. Handsome bro, right? Yea, I know. Anyways. I get my paws on the mix he and The BladeRunners put together for Karmaloop. So I'm all, "I'll use a picture of The BladeRunners. For variety's sake." But their press pictures were in a format not recognized by Blogger. So I had to, like, open 'em and save 'em with a different extension name before uploading to Blogger. Which isn't a big deal, right? Wrong. Maybe that would be a simple task for anyone competent in either A) computer-ing or B) problem solving. But I am sadly proficient at neither A nor B. Being stupid is quite literally the biggest bummer of them all.
Anyways, this mix is totally rad:

Ordered Chinese food on Monday night. Ate half of it. Put the leftovers in a Tupperware container. Put it in my fridge. Tuesday? Didn't eat it. Revisited the leftovers this morning. Reheated them. Everything tasted good. Great, even. Yum. Yummy, yum, yum. But yikes. How long does most Chinese food stay good? Like. Did OD bacteria grow on my noms? Am I about to yack all over my apartment? Just tons and tons of food poisoning? Or something?

Know what totally sucks? Not smoking cigarettes. What am I supposed to do when I'm walking from place to place? What am I supposed to do when I'm at a bar and I get bored? What am I supposed to do if I'm "out" and get social anxiety and need to remove myself from the situation for a second or two? What am I supposed to do if I get hungry but I'm too lazy to make a peanut butter sandwich? What am I supposed to do if I'm tired but have neither Red Bull (or tea or whatever, whatever) nor time to sleep? Ugh, cigarettes were so useful when they were a part of my life.

Goodness gracious, gracious grannies. The Club Cheval kids are so rad. Myd. Canblaster. Panteros666. And Sam Tiba. You know, those cats. I'd been looking forward to their night at Le Bain for, like, months now. And so finally January 15th rolls around and I'm all, "Aw yeah, let's go!" And I hop on weather.com and it's all, "Sup bro? It's 18.0° out!" And I'm like, "Oh, OK. Wow, that's cold. No thanks." I probably would've been rejected by the doorman anyways.
But on the bright side, I finally went ahead and watched 500 Days of Summer. And, like, yo. Kinda made my heart melt, you know? Flutter, flutter. Flutter, flutter.

Other important things:

So I'm opening for Avicii tonight. Which should be totally radical, right? I'm pretty excited. But like, what should I wear?! OMG. OMFG, ZOMG. Decisions, decisions. Should I wear my kitten sweatshirt or my kitten jean jacket? Should I wear my short white socks or my tall white socks? Should I wear my glasses or my contacts? Should I wear my black pants or just my boxer briefs? Should I brush my teeth or just gargle some Listerine? Le sigh. That was emotionally exhausting, umma take a nap now.

Munchies are, like, the greatest snack ever. I've been familiar with red Munchies for a good bit now. Maybe. Like. Five or so years? I dunno, I'm not really sure. But not until yesterday did I know that they make blue Munchies. This is a game-changer, people.
So yea. I'm a fatty and my life's boring. Supwitchoo?

Wait. So the "Bangduck" remix EP is just now coming out? I dunno. I dunno. I mean. It's just that. Wasn't that my favorite song like two years ago or something? More? Less? I can't really remember. I mean. No hate, no hate. The song still bangs, duh. I'm just confused. Why do things like this happen? Just curious. I don't "get" the music industry, you know? I'm just some F-list blogger or whatever. I dunno. Bye.

My love for Taylor Swift in the year 2011 went something like this:
1. Ring in the new year playing "On to the Next One." I secretly wish I were playing "You Belong With Me" or "Love Story."
2. I don't really like "Sparks Fly." Am I not a true T. fan?
3. OMFG, GTFO. Songs as good as "The Story of Us" exist? Why have I ever wasted my time listening to anything else ever, ever, ever? OMG, this song. OMG, OMFG, ZOMG.
4. My hair looks really good in my new Taylor Swift women's XL tee.
5. "The Story of Us" is the perfect last song for my mix Where's My Meet-Cute? The Search for Friendly Greg's Future Wife!. I can't wait for her to meet my cat. And I can't wait to meet hers. Our family is gonna be quite literally too adorable.
6. E-Rock plays "The Story of Us" at Westway, I go honey baked ham, Turbz stares at me like I'm one of these or something of the sort.
7. E-Rock ends his best of 2011 mix with "The Story of Us" and I'm like, "Um, yes! Totally neat, radical, and super!"
8. I play "We Found Love" at midnight instead of "The Story of Us" on NYE because I wanna "do a good job" and "get paid" and "not piss everyone off." And thus 2012 begins just as miserably as did 2011.

Yesterday was the coldest day of the winter in NYC, right? Right. So can someone please explain to me why I chose yesterday of all days to go to the Central Park Zoo? Because I lack even the most basic decision-making skills. Because I'm from Texas and still don't quite understand that winter is, like, the worst thing in the history of ever. Because I'm obsessed with cats and beyond excited to see some big ones prowlin' and roarin' and nappin' (in captivity, sadly). Etc. Etc.
But wait. Yea. No big cats at the Central Park Zoo. So I guess the real question is this: Why is the Central Park Zoo the most SB, half-hearted excuse for a zoo in the friggin' galaxy? GTFO with your polar bears and sea lions and birds. Elephants and giraffes and lions and tigers and hippos or bust.
So HOHME emailed me a new track. Called me "buddy" in the email. So that made me really insecure for seven or ten seconds or so. Why you gotta be so patronizing, HOHME? Anyways. The song. It's big and sexy and this and that and the other and whatever. I guess this would be considered progressive house? Or vocal house? How am I supposed to categorize this tune? I'm piss poor with genres. Which may or may not have something to do with why I have crates called "Big, Sexy House" and "Brostep or Dubstep or Something Dubby or Whatever" in my Serato. Regardless, this song's going in the Big, Sexy House crate.

Fifth season of Jersey Shore. Thursday, January 5th, 2012. Yea, we back in Seaside Heights. Fist pumping and hair gelling and drama llama starting and snitching and whining and crying and yelling and fighting and blah, blah, etc. I'm so excited and I just can't hide it and OMG why isn't it Thursday yet?!
On a related note. Turbz. The Friendly Greg-proclaimed King of Edits. Dude bodied his entire SoundCloud page yesterday. Started fresh today. With a new cut. Which can be found below. OMG, sew ticey, no? Most party rock song I've heard this year for sure.

Holidays are over. So I guess I'll start blogging again. About things like how I was pretty hungover yesterday. So I'm all, "Pizza time!" And I call up my favorite pizza spot in my neighborhood. Carmine's. So hype. Gonna do some serious damage to my wallet, to my body. But there's no answer. So I call back. I call a good seven or eight times before I'm ready to accept that they're closed. So anyways, yea. 2012 is just as rubbish as 2011 was so far. Good, great.
