**sniff, sniff. drip, drip. blagh, blagh**

My 2nd day back at work and I'm sick already. Its not really as bad as my title implies. I have some post-nasal drip going on, sore throat, and some stuffiness. Its not quite the plague, sars (remember that?), or the dreadful bird flu, or my favorite, foot and mouth. Mmmmmm. Makes me hungry. I really have nothing of substance to add to this entry; as if my other post had substance.

So kaboom. Here is some substance, some owchie, ochie. Its a bit old, but I just found it today. It is from 2002, its an audio recording for an interview, some might say podcast, but I don't think that word was buzzing then. Its a interview with Larry Kenney the voice of . . .



Lion-O(that is a sweet pic).



The interview. During the interview they play some of those clips of the thundercats outtakes.

Peace.

This sucks.

This is my first day back to work since Christmas eve, eve. I now know how vomit feels. Once your in the belly you don't want to come back. Walking through the hallways this morning I felt like bile traveling up the esophagus. Once I sat at my cubicle, I felt like said bile hitting the water of a toilet bowl.

I was all set to post during my break, I actually had typed one up, but I had stepped away from my computer and someone in my fam took it upon themselves to close the safari window I was using. Needless to say that killed my inspiration to blog.

I had a very nice Christmas, I got 2 mega gifts. One, Serato Scratch Live. My girlfriend got this for me, and man is it sweet. Some people see this as the downfall of the DJ as we know, hip-hop heads fear that anyone who has a itunes collection will go out and buy it and think themselves a DJ. I just think it will only improve the game. I really don't think "just anyone" would go out and spend $400 a piece on some tech 1200s, a mixer, speakers, and the 600 smackers for the Serato Scratch live.

Two, I got a Nikon Coolpix 7.1 digital camera, you can check out some pictures I have taken with it (all pictures added from 12/25 till present are from me). I need to get some rechargeable batteries for this bad boy because it sucks the life out of them like a owl licks a tootsie roll pop.

In other news Arrested Development was very, very friggin funny last night. The SOB episode has had to be on of the funniest eva! There was on specific scene that had me laughing out loud for a good minute, but I can't remember which scene. It is such a good show.




Also, I need a late pass. I just found this dude, Sufjan Stevens, and his album Illinois, it is glorious. Seriously, it is really nice to listen to. Quick story behind it. His previous album entitled (which I haven't heard yet)Greetings From Michigan: The Great Lake State, along with the album Illinois are two of the 50 albums he wants to make about each state here in the US of A. Its a pretty lofty goal but very cool idea.

All the songs on the Illinois album are lovely pieces of sonic art, but the 2 tracks that stand out to me are: "Concerning The UFO Sighting Near Highland, Illinois ," very cool piano, and "John Wayne Gacy, Jr." The John Wayne Gacy track is perhaps the most beautiful song about a serial killer ever.

Finally.

Scrubs is back tonight on NBC at 9. Its on for a full hour.
