la store

lastore-fixtures.jpg
we got some new fixtures at the LA store this week. there so much space there, we don’t know what to do with it… it’s the complete opposite of our nyc store, where we have to use every inch of wall space to show the product (seen the new cd racks?). the feeling of the two stores is completely different. I like the openess, light, and relaxed vibe of the LA store, but there’s also something about the dynamics of the manhattan spot that LA will never come close too. i hate to wet our own whistle, but it’s one of the few places left in the east village that has that old buzzy feeling about it.
other places that i feel the buzz in the village
1) Yokocho, Go and Decibel – old japanese reliables in the east village
2) Academy, Sound Library, A1 (probably Good Records too, but i’ve never been there)
3) used book store on 12th between 1st and 2nd ave – nice selection
4) that milkshake + hotdog place around the corner from the store, bad hotdogs – good service
5) gray’s papaya – the workers are awesome, what race are they?
6) max’s and nublu – these places do not change
7) porto rico coffee – the best kept secret, awesome coffee
8) autumn skate shop – right by the park
oh, and while we’re riding the lloydski, roc, woodman wave on the blog,
here’s a vintage pics of the nocturnal crew (minus woodman now)

Fireman.

Me and Commish were just talking the other day about how weird Weezy looks lately. I mean, he’s been looking like a tattoo’ed steroid’ed black Predator for a while, but it’s gone to new heights. And the whole “daddy” thing with Birdman on the new album is super-weird… and compounded if you take into account the rumors…

Tear for the fans

This will probably be the only time you see me do a sports post, but I happened to catch the Met’s game last night. Holy crap. Although I don’t really know the team, I do know that this wonderful crazy city loves them to death and vicarious bliss they give is something to behold. Everyone from thugs to sweet ol’ grandma’s care. Anyways the shit was too epic as you already know, classic storybook style. Tied 3 games each, bottom of 9th, Met’s down by 2, bases loaded, 2 outs…… then a the biggest anti-climatic strike out ever. Snack tells me everyone at the local diner this morning was pissed, grumpy, and moral sucked. What a diarrhea dookie of a nice try.

Edit!

Yo Pop Rocks and all you other bootleg records that lock the beat and put 8 bar intros on everything, here’s a wishlist (I also invite anyone to add to this list):
Violent Femmes: Blister, Kiss Off, Add it Up
Danzig: Mother
Asia: Heat of the Moment
Radiohead: High & Dry
Dion: Runaround Sue
Billy Joel: Only the Good Die Young
80% of Queen songs
INXS: Never Tear Us Apart
By the way, the music videos for INXS and “Your Love” by the Outfield are extended versions. If you youtube them there’s like an extra 8 bars on them already. If you guys are really horny to get that extra guitar riff, you can burn them off the videos…

SYKE!
Its about 530 in the morning right now so Im gonna keep this brief.
il admit I said alot of things in my first post. some things i meant and some things that were play. i said i planned to bring the heat to keep you warm all winter. are you not entertained? cus one thing i cant deny is the heat. i carry the heat with me where ever i go. i sleep with the heat, feed the heat, wash the heat and give it a place to sleep at night. i keep the heat close. therefore, i always bring the heat. that being said, heres a small sample of the heat.
Always,
Lloydski (youre favorite)
PS..Contrary to popular belief DJs dont actually like breakdancers. You bore us, take up space and reak of desperation (HEY, LOOK AT ME)…im over it!
PPS. Pitts. Almost but not quite…
PPPS. “I am the heat”
enjoy,
Lloydski
