Journal / hi, and happy new year. well, happy western-y new year.

i guess for the vast majority of people on the planet it’s not new year. like, well, the chinese and indians (that’s 2,000,000,000 people right there). and the muslims and the jews. and a lot of others, as well. but for the billion or so people for whom wednesday night was new years eve, and for whom thursday is new years day: happy new year.

i dj’ed at a big rave in downtown l.a, and it was really, really fun. if you were there: thanks for coming. here’s a picture taken with my blackberry of my 15,000 new friends at 5 minutes past midnight .

it looks vaguely as if we’re in the belly of a giant whale, or perhaps a big inflatable space ship. my next dj’ing gig(s) will be in d.c for inauguration week. i don’t know details yet, but i’ll let you know as soon as i know. and now i’m going to go to bed, lulled to sleep by the dulcet tones of coke-fuelled drunks yelling at each other on the streets of hollywood. goodnight, and happy 2009.

the economy might be in the toilet, but we have a new president-elect and there are about a trillion things for which we can each hopefully be thankful and grateful. i hope you had a great new years eve and i hope that 2009 ends up being a fantastic year for you.
