Wow...It's Hard To Believe

It is hard to believe it's been 5 days since I posted anything. I promise that I will do better - but honestly, things have been crazy. Just when I thought I was finally over Strep Throat (from TWO Weeks ago) - it came raging back with a bad sinus infection to boot....Well thank God for drugs - I got some really good antibiotics that my doctor promises will kill the bug for good...(thankfully.) So, though I don't feel "sick", I must honestly say that I haven't been this ill in many a year......No worries - I should be back to full force in a few more days.

So, even though I haven't been writing in my blog - I have been busy! I decided that I needed to catalogue my 12" remix that I know what I have - and so that I don't buy any more duplicates! (I got really upset when I bought Big Pig's Breakaway 4 times...I guess I just got excited cause I love the song so much).

(Yes, I will post the 12" Remix of this soon - way too tired tonight!!

Also, on the political front - I have yet another new conspiracy theory.....crazy as it sounds I don't put it past this stay tuned!!

I am trying these "teaser" subjects to keep you all coming back! And speaking of you all....I know you are out there - I see the hits each and every day....who are you? I would love to know who is reading my do a shout out!

Til We meet again!

Music From The Edge: Smart E's

In honor of my sister's 30Th birthday, I sifted through all of my remix vinyl and remix maxi cassettes to find a song that she loves. Well, I looked for about two days - and finally found it!!!

Smart E's was a rave group founded by Luna-C (a well known British DJ and producer), who found some success in the US with their single "Sesame's Treet" (a remix of the theme song from Sesame Street). This success was due in large part to KISS FM and DJ Steve Jackson who picked this song to play on his radio show. This is a perfect example of how radio DJ's influenced the music scene (which is now completely sterile - and for those that care generic).

Anyway, Jodi - this is for you, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
