the plan...

I’m sitting at my computer, wondering what to write about first…  There’s been so much happening lately, I don’t know where to start.  I’ll start with yesterday…  Santiago (S2) and the gang came over to my house for dinner – it was very nice.  MMMM, I made my lovely pan-fried chicken, skin-on mashed potatoes (which are LOVELY, by the way), macaroni salad…  And the big finale:  My infamous, award-winning banana pudding.  MMMMMM!!!  But the highlight of the night?  Just being able to entertain people at my house…  It felt good.  

Terry Christopher and I got into a little fight, which is another reason why I’m not going to NYC tomorrow for the Outmusic Awards.  Yes, I’m nominated.  No, I’m not going.  Since I start shooting the scenes for the movie (which is now called “UNCUT”) tomorrow, I guess it’s alright.  But gottdamn that Terry…  Out of the 4 remixes I had to do for him, I only completed 2 of them.  I promised him 1 remix per week – but he took so long to approve (can you believe he actually had to “approve” them first?) the first mix, there was no way I could finish all 4 of them by his deadline.  Well, so far I’ve gotten paid for ONE of the remixes.  After he tried to call me (and I wasn’t home), he left me the rudest e-mail imaginable.  He basically accused me of lying and making excuses (for why I couldn’t finish 2 mixes from scratch in 2 days) and he told me I was “finished.”  While he also said he’d send me a check for my second remix, I have yet to see it.  Had he sent me my money, I would’ve bought my ticket to NYC and attended the ceremony anyway – the movie could’ve waited until I got home, as I feel like I actually have a good chance of being this year’s Outmusician.  But noooooo…  Terry wouldn’t even answer my e-mails.  He whined like a bitch in HIS email, but totally ignored my response.  (oooh, what a diva… had to have the last word… LOL)  Granted, I could care less if he’s pissed at me.  But don’t fucking play with my money now…  He KNEW I was waiting on this check to buy my ticket to NYC.  He probably held out on purpose, just so I could miss the ceremony.  If I see a check on Monday, my suspicions will be confirmed.  

Speaking of money, OOOH… I bought myself an IRiver…  I LOVE this little machine!  Not only can I record all of my DJ sets without a computer, I can also record automatic voice MP3s…. I can watch movies (don’t ask), and basically use it as a hard drive as well.  It’s so much better than the Ipod.  Fuck the pod.  Gimme the RIVER!  LOL…  

Today, we also looked at (what is soon to be) our second house…  Nestled deep in Detroit, right near the neighborhood I first grew up in…  A HUGE 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom house.  This place was so big, I swear it had 4 levels.  Walking through it today, I thought I would get LOST.  I’ll have to take pictures of it, but I’ll wait until AFTER they say “the house is yours!!!”  We’ll have to update the house and all – but hey…  Once all the work is done, the house will be more like a palace.  I’ll probably rent it out, just because I absolutely LOVE the house I live in right now…  But lord, if I ever need to just “get away,” that second house would be like a mini-vacation…  I’ll pray about it.  That house has so much potential, I hope that everything works out.  Wish me luck?

Well, I guess I should be going to bed.  I start shooting that movie in exactly 9 hours from now.  I don’t wanna look TIRED on the screen…  And I don’t even know what to wear…  Shame, shame, shame…

Oh yeah…  the next time I post, I’m gonna tease y’all.  I will put some of the new songs I’ve been working on and remixing (both mine and others), just so you know I haven’t been slacking in the studio!  (  (Brother’s got a plan!)

Love on u…
