OH SHIT, PARTY.

I was up all night Friday night doing work. I couldn't start until 3 am because I didn't get off of UCB 'till 2. My deadline was 10 on Saturday morning (I was an hour late) and I was seeing an apartment at 1 on Saturday afternoon. That went well (signed a lease and everything) but it took a while, so I didn't get back in the city 'till 4. Had to cancel a Derrick meeting at 5 'cause I was drunkenly, hallucinatingly tired and woul'dve been useless. I slept 'till 10:30 PM. It felt like morning, being the first sleep I'd had in a day. But it was not morning. It was PARTY TIME. Purnell's birthday, to be exact, which is always a ridiculous, margarita-soaked affair aptly named "KEEP IT FUN."

"Oh, hi. Didn't see you there. Come on in."

I spend most of every UCB party in the tech booth playing music off the computer and a couple of iPods (last night, six).

When it goes well, people do this:

(dance)

When it doesn't, they do this:

(wince)

Donald was helpin' me out for a little while. We played "Return Of The Mack." The dancefloor response did not at all correspond with what a great song "Return of the Mack" is.

I got to play "Throw Some D's." I was worried it wouldn't work, but I wanted it to work so badly, which is why I was glad when it did. It was like introducing your girlfriend to your parents. You love them both so much and you really want them to like each other. I wouldn't mind if my girlfriend was "Throw Some D's." It's a fucking great song. People did this:

The big hit of the party was a live link-up between the party and UCB people in LA.

New people kept showing up on-screen in LA. "Holy shit," you'd say, "that person's out there?" At a certain point it would not have been totally outlandish to see somebody I'd just seen walk out of the booth in NY walk on-screen in California. It was really awesome and genuine to see people simultaneously wowed by cool new techonology and excited to connect with their absent friends. It was also awesome to use said technology to call said friends dickholes.

By request:

I gotta start playing a shorter set at the parties. You can only drunkenly hit on so many people when you're shuttling through six iPods to see if anyone has "Rumpshaker."

Thanks to anybody who came back to keep me company/request a song. Thanks to anybody who flashed me from the dancefloor (two girls and counting!!!) Thanks, Purns, for throwing such a monumentally fun party and being a cool enough dude to have so many wonderful friends.

Also: I updated the "I Write Short Stories" section of the sidebar, so it now has a more accurate representation of stories/blurbs I've written in the past couple of years. You could probably kill an hour reading them, if killing an hour is something you need to do.

Highly useful article. Myself & my neighbor were preparing to do some research about that. We got a high quality book on that matter from our local library and most books were not as descriptive as your information. I am highly glad to see such information which I was searching for a long time.
