There's nothing like your office being evacuated while black smoke belches out from the roof and the channel 4 _and_ channel 7 choppers hover over to take me out of a Friday funk. Seriously, two floors of my office are ruined due to the elevator system catching fire. Not cool. Four fire trucks, swarm of cops. Got evacuated to the front lawn for about an hour, then corralled in to the cafeteria and kept there for two and a half goddamned hours by some snarky, bitchy lady in a leather trenchcoat. Finally, at 5:30, they let me leave to smoke. There's only so much time I can stand hanging out with the second level workstation guy and his wonderful college stories. Might've seen it on the news, pretty much every channel but UPN sent at least a van, even WWJ was there. Can't wait for the deluge of file recovery tickets to pour in from people whose workstations got blasted by a fire hose. Of course, this was follwed up with nasty rains and much freeway asshattery. People, it's water. Perhaps you've seen it before. In the SHOWER, maybe? Get over it and fucking drive. The problem with AWD is that pretty much no one else has it. Don't mind me if I'm shit-housed tonight. Oh, and come to Necto Monday to hear meta_x spin her first DJ set ever. It's going to own.

UPN dissolved their news department about a year ago.

That would explain that. Don't really get news from TV any more, wouldn't know. Great set last night, by the way, tons of good stuff. Where'd you get all your fancy vinyl?

Some from Record Time... some from Metropolis Mail-Order... some from COP International (their store is a mess but there is great stuff if you take the time to look)... one from Ant-Zen... a couple of pieces were borrowed from friends (underworld, delerium). It was fun. Once I expand my personal collection a bit more I'll likely do it again. Glad you liked the set!

Heh, COP International.
I miss Rock & Roll Records in New Orleans. Someone dumped their entire collection of EBM there, after three trips I think I own most of it. BTW, you missed some good stuff not buying from Denis.
