Because I missed it, all right?
International DJ spin
No one reads this blog, but I'll post this for kicks anyhow:
This Thursday night from 8 to midnight, I'll be playing 4 straight hours of:
French indie rock
Chilean electronic shoegazer
Music by film director Pedro Almodovar's 1980s punk band Almodovar y McNamara
Soviet-era organ music and now-era reggae from Russia
Belgian electronic rock
...and pleeeenty more.
Admission is free, and once again, it's going to be on the last Thursday of the month at the Sci-Fi Lounge (http://www.myspace.com/scifilounge) in the Skinker-DeBaliviere neighborhood at 6010 Kingsbury Ave. (next to Joe's Cafe, for the unfamiliar).
Italy + food + blog = yes please

Also, I'm liking the Blue Nile Ethiopian market by Olive and McKnight. I just cooked up half of a 89 cent bag of red lentils as a side with my last batch of enchiladas, and I'm so excited to pick up some ingredients to make injera and a doro wat. In a month or so, they're going to start offering Ethiopian cooking classes there too, so I can find out what I'm about to probably do wrong!
