The End

It's funny how every end-of-year, I always look back how truly amazing/weird/awkward the year has been, and of all year prior to this one, 2008 has by far, been the most amazing/weird/awkward. Hands Down.
Of all the brilliant new mixes, the live shows, & the 'sorry kid, you must be 18/21 to get in there', the ones that stand out [they don't really stand out, it's just the ones I can remotely remember!], I think the following events have been the most crucial to me having a good/bad time in 2008:

- Free Movies at McCarren Pool hosted by The L Magazine [thanks to
 the strangers/hipsters smoking what I & Co. believed to have been the best weed in the area]
- Getting accepted at St.John's [technically, this means little, but if it weren't the case, there are some cool individuals I probably wouldn't know *hint]
- Skipping to London for the next 3 years [where all the doors are fucking OPEN]
- Graduating [Goodbye uniforme de merde]
- Getting a bike [Vital, much?]
- Barry Obama [self-explanatory] 
- News of a possible new Daft Punk Album in the works [ohmagahwtfbbq!]
- Skins, axing out the entire cast [& the replacement ain't that much 'wicked', folks]
- Laughing my ass out at 'fights' on williamsboard
- The 'Closing Down' of McCarren Pool [ahhhwtf?why?]
- Meeting possibly the biggest junkie [yet, so well dressed] I know, who's now my barely legal partner in crime, & fellow francophone.
- Pillow Fights in Union Square, Manhunt in Washington Square
- Justice at Matter
- The 'Closing Down' of Studio B, & The End
- Realizing that if I do not back away from my iPod & it's unrealistic level of volume, I most definitely will lose my hearing by the age of 23.
& Finally,
- Getting a camera [wisest decision of the year]

If I remember correctly, this is a music blog, so here are the tracks that I seriously overplayed all year [New & Old]:

- Daft Punk - Voyager [Revolte Remix]
- Dragonette - I Get Around [Van She Vocal Remix]
- Kleerup feat. Lykke Li - Until We Bleed
- SebastiAn - Dog [Choreo Edit]
- Mystery Jets - Half In Love With Elizabeth [Foamo Remix]
- Van She - Kelly [Breakbot Remix]
- Timbaland - Miscommunication [Bloody Beetroots Remix]
- The Presets - This Boy's In Love [Lifelike Remix]
- Ghostface Killah - Charlie Brown [Guns'N'Bombs Remix]
- Knobbers - Crookers
- Danger - 11h30
- Maroon 5 - This Love [Cut Copy Galactic Beach House Mix]
- Elvis Presley - Crawfish [Pilooski Edit]
- College feat. Anoraak - Fantasy Park
- MGMT - Electric Feel [Justice Remix]
- Pnau - Baby [Breakbot Remix]
- Lil' Wayne - A Milli
- Bon Iver - Re:Stacks
- Van She - Strangers [Strip Steve Remix], honorable mention [Yuksek Remix]
- autoKratz - Stay The Same
- Louis La Roché - Love

Now I'm Going To Stop There, Cause Seriously This List Could Go On...

God knows what 2009 has in store, if the Mayans were right, it only means were closer to annihilation. Not that I am pessimistic or anything, I do look forward to seeing the earth graze a black hole and make it unharmed*. HA.
No, but seriously, if that does not kill us, the electro war will for sure take one of your limbs.
But Bam Bam's in charge now, so it'll all go smoothly. Half of Europe & All of Asia's already welcomed 2009. Guess it can't be that bad, folks!
