hahaha this is really funny. My friend, Olyvia instructed me to go to google.com and type in ‘weapons of mass destruction’. She advised to click the ‘I’m feeling lucky button’ instead of the regular one and this is the message that I received:

“These Weapons of Mass Destruction cannot be displayed

The weapons you are looking for are currently unavailable. The country might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your weapons inspectors mandate.

I’m NOT lying! See for yourself!

Wassup y’all! Had a wonderful weekend that went too fast, as usual. Went to North Avenue beach on Saturday and it felt like Miami of California. They planted palm trees in the sand that looked like they were ready to die. I love going to Castaways, a bar right on the beach. It’s such a scene in the summertime. I really doesn’t feel like Chicago. I felt like I was on vacation. Pretty sweet. We really do make the most out of our summers here. This town rocks.

Later on in the evening, I went to check out a potential new space for Fluxcore’s TURN ON show. Likalee was the contact for these new people called Artist Relief. The space is called HAREM, and it was absolutely amazing. Man! I almost cried when I walked into this space. I couldn’t believe how beatiful it was. If all things work out, this would be the most beautiful space Fluxcore has set foot upon. And everyone was so nice and supportive. I couldn’t believe it – I thought I was dreaming. They had an amazing DJ booth – Asian style with a gong hanging from above. It really DID look like a harem. I can’t wait to have a show there!

Then me and the Fluxcore gang went to Zentra to check out DJ Psycho Bitch’s debut at her new residency there – and boy did it kick my ass! I had a crazy time dancing. It was out of control.

Damn. Just got in a couple of hours ago from Montreal. Our flight got canceled last night due to severe thunderstorms in Chicago. It was a pleasant accident because we got to stay an extra day in Montreal. We discovered an incredible area closer to the mountain on Rue St. Denis. It was lined with shops and restaurants occupied by mostly locals. You know it’s a good find when you see only locals hanging around. The rest of Rue St. Denis going toward the Old Port was congested with a bunch of stages for the Comedy Festival. It’s amazing how many festivals Montreal has. So my secret wish of staying one extra day came true. The plane ride back home took extra long. We were about a half hour delayed. I accidentally squirted some hand lotion across the aisle onto a woman’s face and her husband’s jacket. It was really funny. They had no idea where it came from. I was trying not to laugh but couldn’t help it – so I pretended to laugh at the tv screen because they were showing some comedy show. I sat next to a couple with a three month old baby who hysterically cried the entire time landing into Chicago. At that point I was so ready to be on solid ground. Anyway, back to the old routine here in Chicago. I am a little revived – ready to plan this next Fluxcore show!

Greetings from Montreal, Canada! It is my second to last day here – and it has been a fantastic time as usual. I went to this great restaurant in the St. Laurent-Prince Arthur area called MED. It reminded me of Sushi Samba in New York City. I met this great DJ spinning by the bar. His name is Omar Cito Perez and he spinned the smoothest Deep House. I was really digging it. Check out his site Ritmo del Sol Recordings. I am always interested in looking out for new talent in different cities.

I saw a great jazz band last night called Pairs Combo. They were very loungy with a bit of a Middle Eastern flare. The jazz west wast amazing this year, as usual. Anyway, not really feeling like returning to the U.S. of A. yet tomorrow, but I guess all good vacations must come to an end. I cannot wait to come back next summer.
