Gigs and Other Stuff

8:39 PM August 27, 2008
My DJ gig at Whitebird went well last week. I was spinning for about 2.5 hours and had a lot of fun. I'll probably be DJing there again sometime soon, but no definite arrangements have been made yet. I have, however, lined up plans for a new DJ gig at Earls for this Saturday night.

I'll be spinning some jazzy and funky house at Earls from 10pm to 1am. So come out and have a bite to eat or some drinks while I help create a loungy atmosphere. I'm looking forward to playing at a new venue and this should be a good fit.

In other news, I've been working on a few new designs for this website. The current design has been around for a few years now and I feel it's about time for a new look. I'm toying with some brighter themes for something different from this dark one, but I haven't settled on anything final yet. I'm not sure when the new design will be ready, but it could be anywhere from a week to a few months. For now I'm just playing with some ideas. I'm in no rush.

Anyways, check out Earls this Saturday night for some grooving beats and congratulations to my friends Steve and Dee on their wedding in Hawaii this past week.

Midsummer 2008

5:56 PM August 10, 2008
It's been a while since I've posted a new photo entry, and I have quite a few photos stocking up now. In the last few weeks I've taken about a thousand photos at various events around the city. I've finally had the chance to go through them and pick out some of my favourites.

In taking these photos I've been experiencing more problems with my camera lately. I've actually been having some issues with it for months now, but a few new issues have started happening this summer. For one, the LCD screen has been displaying weird artifacts. Also sometimes when I turn the camera on it will display an error and automatically turn itself off. Focusing has been difficult at times too. These are just another sign that I need to finish saving for that new Canon 40D camera and buy it already!

In other news, I've been putting together some DJ demos to hand out to various loungy places around town. I'd like to start playing out more and the timing for it seems right for me at this point. I played for Davey's birthday dinner at Whitebird Lounge last month along with Davin and it was a lot of fun. I gave them one of my demos and have lined up another gig for later this month. So I'll be DJing some jazzy deep house tunes at the Whitebird Lounge on August 20th. If you're interested, come on down and have a bite to eat and enjoy some drinks and the atmosphere. I will be playing from 8pm-11pm.

Anyways, there has been lots happening this summer in Victoria, such as Luminara, VEMF, the British Columbia 150 year anniversary festivities, and a few other such events. So here are a few photos from the last few weeks of my summer.
