wow

So after 79 weeks of not updating this thing, I am coming out of retirement just long enough to say thank you to those involved in last night's show at Zaphods, as well as to those who came, and to those who I paid for copious amounts of alchool.

It was a wonderful time.

I fucking love playing this town, I love the folks who, after almost 15 years, have become an extension of my family, albeit an incenstous one at times, and in many ways know me better than my bio family ever will. Being away from Ottawa kills me and if it wasn't for the really big gun I get to play with, I might just come back. But it's good to know that it continues while I am away....

Anyhow, I'm off again, maybe for even longer this time, time will tell, but yeah...thanks.

HUA bitches

N.

(no subject)

Alright so played a few dates in Europe and it was great. I came back with a vicious flu, but it was worth it.....big thanks to everyone I met and who helped get shows booked and crowds moving. In no particular order:

Nicolas and Dani (Ad Noiseam team extrordinaire)
Zak for being a great travel partner, thanks for brigning back sexy and for not trying to spoon me in Vienna ;)
Simon/ Mothboy for a killer set and being a swell guy.
Jason Forrest/Donna Summer for japanese trance core.
Earnst, Manila and Betty for the Viena hospitality.
Ritchie for good, albeit sometimes terrifying times in Linz.
Tom, Spectre Tom, Yann (my guy), Vanesssa, Jason, Mika, Herman, Bauke (thanks for the piano), Grit, Brian and Julie, Hello Kitty, and everyone at Maschinenfest for making it a fucking blast. Sorry if I forgot you.

and last but not least, Banana Nectar, you are a god amongst juice and I will never forget your sweet, sweet flavour....

Europe

My bags are packed, 
my laptop is loaded,  
and the beats are going to be phat.....

... so a day and a half from now I'll be in Berlin...

see you all soon!!

Big Ass thank you...

To everyone that had anything to do with the show last night, inc. just showing up…I had a blast.
I especially want to thank Leslie and Jairus for the show/drive.

And last, but never least, Yann for being so much more than just a ninja….

The sets by both Un and Cdrk were outstanding, and the crowd was really great - I made more on merch. last night than in all of my past shows combined, so thanks for that too. (as it happens I ripped almost my entire left leg off my pants in a freak jumping on stage incident, so good to know that I can now afford new pants…cause we need pants…(or do we????)

Cheers…
