I feel a little accomplished this morning. Normally Im up no earlier than 4pm, hung over, sweating out the Jack Daniels from the night before. Today however, I was up an at em by noon, still a little hung over, but feeling a lot more alive than I should be.Beginning my stroll down Elmwood, I bumped into some folks from the New Bank of America Elmwood Branch, and started the accounts that I was planning on moving. Im used to BofA from the South and im tired of how dodgy HSBC gets with authorizing cards at kiosks like the ones for the metro. The Elmwood BofA branch should be open next week, and the inside is simply amazing and very spacious. Im excited to bank there. I also stopped by Firebrand on to pick up some relief for my feet. Found nice pair of white with brown Converse sneakers that you can see from the pic above. I'm going to my first Lacrosse game with the Buffalo Bandits tonight. I have a media pass, so ill be in the press box with my friend and co WNYMedia rascal, Andy Kulyk. Ill post a few pics tonight.>
He's gonna kill me for this, but since Lil Joe has been filling in on Friday at Bayou down on Chippewa, we get the pleasure of Richard, our club manager, spinning the night at Club Marcella. Not that Richard is a bad DJ, its that he is the manager and and can't dedicate the whole night to the music. This makes three fridays in a row with out lil joe. Im hoping the dj he's filling in for recovers from her surgery so he can come play some electro beats.>
I've been working real hard this week, this new schedule really eats my day up but it can't be helped. Since a new project is to rebuild the agency website, I decided to brush up on a little bit of code and refresh my blog. Upgraded to 2.5, enjoy it alot. Fixed my theme and took out the flash text headlines, they were affecting flash video playback.I also put the snap form back on the sidebar, like it was originally. Try it out!>
stopped down to the ArtVoice Best of Buffalo awards. I didn't win anything, and neither did WNYMEdia, but its the one place to bump into those people you can only stand once or twice a year.
However congrats should go to my buddy DJ Lil Joe for winning Best Dj for 4 years in a row, and Jimmy "Mamma" Hill for winning Best Male Bartender again.

I first mentioned coot when he showed up in my radar in January, and I begged and prodded for Beth (of Hero Design Studio in Allentown) to get him. She happily obliged, knowing my affinity for tall, beefy, nekkid lummocks, and even held him for me while I whored up for the scratch to pick him up. Reason number #573 that Hero Design is the best toy shop evar.
Since Flickr launched video capabilities for pro members, I've been taking advantage of it to show you a little more than a just a picture when I feature my new vinyl. Here is Coot in 90 seconds (flickr limits video to 90 secs and 15MB, to keep video at the raw clip level.)
A 19 year old Cincinnati mother was arrested along with three other when police say she broke into a candy store, stole $400 worth of sweets, all with her infant baby in tow.
Police say around 1:00 am Thursday night, Christine Ruther, along with her three accomplices (don't forget little baby Ruther!) broke a window to get into Minges Candy Store. Police also say she removed her baby from the stroller to carry all the sticky loot. Police responded and simply followed a trail of wrappers which led them to Ruther and her friends. Ruther is charged with B/E and child endangerment.
Now why would anyone want to rob a candy store?

I don't watch BSG, never have, though I promised John I would sit with him one day and watch S 1-4, as long as bj intermissions were included. Anyways, when I came across this cute little CG short, i figured it had some major relevance to the BSG'ers and even though i found it mildy amusing, I'm sure others will find it more endearing.

A funny thing happened when I opened Ableton on my laptop a few days after I performed a special b-day set for dekoze aka, “filthy bitch” (it’s a term of endearment) at Footwork a few weeks back…“Program closed before saving, do you want to recover your work?”Hmmmmm….ok! I discovered that I must have hit the red record button at some point, as I managed to capture about 35 minutes of the set….certainly didn’t intend to, becasue I wasn’t going to risk a glitch by overloading the RAM…The nice thing about Ableton Live - it’s real easy pick up where I left off, so to speak, and add to the 35 minutes I had recorded to make a full length mix…so I did…now I can share it with you…Download and enjoy exclusive re-rubs, tweeks, and re-edits as usual…this time I manipulate and re-rub the likes of Jaydee, Justin Timberlake, Primal Scream, Ian Dury, M.I.A., GTO, Peaches, and more…oh…I also give birthday shout outs to filthy with special sample drops lovingly prepared by a radio legend…there’s about five of them…I just had to leave ‘em in… -Xotec

I haven't even listened to all of this yet, but looking at the tracklist, there are some serious winners in the mix, especially the "laidback jaydee vs jt - plastic technology (xotec’s hips and thighs re-rub)" bit, sure to get the vogue queens new waving all over the floor.
Saw this Fireplug at Subway while I was with my rec group. Reminded me I haven't done a a hot Bear du Jour in a while.
While he had a nice butt and an even nicer belly, I ommited the head because, well, he's a bit of a butterface. That's ok, I'll support my local firemen anytime. now im off to go set somethin on fire.

Oh Hai! I'm Nate and I live in the sometimes beautiful, always exciting, city of Buffalo, NY. I'm not too focused on this blog, but you'll probably end up reading something about Buffalo, my toy obsession, burly bears, club drama, Google Android, and some damn good music. This is my blog. Read it. Cheers.
