I’ve played a ping-pong bar! I’ve played a karoke bar and tonight I add another to the list: an arcade! Yes, tonight you can enjoy half-priced drinks (it’s service industry night!), pinball and lots o’ video games all to the sounds of my DJ set. I’ll be up on the deck (singular as it’s a literal elevated deck) playing a set inspired by electronic gaming. Think Comic Book Fever, old school Foals, Tom Vek and No Doubt’s “Making Out.” Let’s get pixelated and party down!
See y’alls later! This is likely to be my last set in a long, long time. Entry is free. My 3 hour set starts at Ground Kontrol at 9!

Holocene Happy Hour with DJ Nine Inch Nilina
DJing today during Holocene’s Happy Hour 5-8pm! The esteemed Michael Horowitz will be doing live portraiture as well! And the menu of free gourmet bites is UP! I’ll be playing a bunch of hot jams including new favorite songs by Mapei, Sarah Winters and of course enough Shlohmo x Jeremih for an overdose (though we all know that’s not possible). Fuck, and even JB’s “Wait for a Minute” - Tyga’s verse over that Whisper Song-esque beat? Ummm… Yes!
And here’s a bonus illustration Michael did of me last week at the Pop Culture Party I DJed:
His portraits are free y’all - like you get to take ‘em and keep ‘em! Since meeting last week we’ve already made plans for him to do live portraiture on my family vacations, my wedding, baby showers and Real Housewife-style birthdays for my future kiddos. Match made in heaven! ha

Oooooohh! I’m DJing this Friday night at East End! It’s a momentous occasion because it’s my first time ever DJing there! I’ve seen my share of great shows from Monotonix to PRE and the Mae Shi and now it’s my turn. Will I be upstairs or downstairs? You’ll just have to come and see, but you’ll know yr in the right place if you hear Ciara and Zendaya on blast. I *might* even break out my iPad and do a Traktor set. Who knows? Just say you’ll be there :)

Last night was epic! Photoshoot for my birthday flyer with Lina and Arya followed by craft night with Tyler, Lauren, Henry and Daniel. These past few days have been major bummer town (broken hearts, former friends and a lost wallet), but today is the first day of October! My birthday is days away and if last night was any indication, I have some of the best friends in the world and can still party down! I hope the people who went on a spending spree in Gresham with my credit card are having just as much of a blast! Birthday photos coming soon - PREPARE!

"Operation Iraqi FreeDOOM"
4th of July at the Abandoned Iraqi Embassy of East Germany in Berlin
It’s funny because it wasn’t until I saw these photos that I realized I’d tagged the American flag and my ode to Gil! Scott! Heron! with “Freedoom” that I’d painted over the word “spied” that was already there. Oh hiya NSA!
The atmosphere was definitely creepy. Burned out with various homophobic captions tagged throughout. No homeless people there. Absurdly easy to break-in; the barb-wire we’d been warned about nearly completely removed from the fence. This was one of my big goals in terms of Berlin’s abandoned places and we accomplished it. Then we traveled from Pankow to the Mitte and went our separate ways for an evening of debauchery.
