Happy Holidays from Chitown.

Just sitting here in the studio drinking coffee and working on this new EP. It's the DJ T-1000 "comeback" record. Forget bringing sexy back, I'm bringing evil back. Putting all my anger, frustration and resentment into the music, where it belongs.
Also did a vocal session for the trip-hop album last Friday, a great experience! My friend Jimmy
is engineering the sessions.
I've been so busy making my own entertainment, I haven't seen any new movies or anything. TV bores me this season. I was out of the country for over a month, so I don't know what's happening in "Lost" or "Desperate Housewives." I think the problem this season is there's too much to remember with these shows. The old-school "Law & Order" format, where they solve a case at the end, is making a comeback.
I did manage to see the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show
last week, though, my God. Those are some of the most beautiful women on Earth. Save your crying about skinny models, blah blah blah. Don't wanna hear it. They're hot. I liked the fashions too, especially when they wore their angel wings. They looked like bad-ass superheroes. They had Giselle Bundchen swoop down on wires at the end, that was the shit.
I wish I was in an industry where I was invited to things like that.
This Friday, 15 December, there's a meet-and-greet for me from 5-8 pm at No Friction Cafe
here in Chicago. I'll be showing the artwork from my L.A. show, and copies of "The Art of Transformation" CD and "The Sexy Adventures of Orietta St. Cloud" comic book/CD/vinyl will be on sale. No Friction is at 2023 N. California (Blue Line stop: California) in Bucktown. 773-278-7170 for more info.
No Friction has the best hot chocolate so come have some with me.
Later that night I'm going to Double Door to see my old friend from Detroit, Lauren Flax
, who now lives in NYC and is spinning for some rock band now.
Then, 16 December, I'm in Cleveland for Blitzen 2. That should rock. I'm really looking forward to it.
If I don't talk to you, have a Merry Christmas, Happy Kwanzaa (although I'm not sure Kwanzaa people actually read this blog) and Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends (strangely I bet more Jews than Black folks read this, let me know if I'm wrong).
PS: I put three unreleased DJ T-1000 tracks on my Myspace page
, have a listen.

Putting the anger and frustration back into the music eh?? this sounds good for a cat like me who likes it hard as steel!

You're not missing shit on TV in regards to LOST. Its been off the air for like 8 weeks and doesn't come back on til early Feb. so you probably haven't missed a beat.
I agree, the VS Models are simply unreal. That fashion show is like my 3rd favorite thing of all time. Can't get enough of it.
Glad to see you're coming back to Detroit for a gig in January. Can't wait!
