Onward, upward

Two days to go.

The folks I work with took me out for dinner and karaoke as a lovely farewell. Friday is my last day here in Jersey City and then I'll be moving on to a new assignment on Monday. I'll be downtown again (aw, yeah) and it seems like the new job will be pretty intense; lots of development to do and maybe some new technologies to learn. As geeky as it sounds, I'm especially excited about the latter.

In a strange way, I'm glad this is happening right now. I feel like starting something brand new (a clean slate approach, as it were) will be very helpful, given all that's been going on lately. A new beginning may put all of the lingering issues in perspective. Or perhaps it's just that it will be nice to have something that's not already fucked up. I can attack it on my own terms.

Very empowering, no?

Power on the hour from:

Monsiuer Leroc - Le Slow Motion Boogie Woogie
(acid jazz/funk inflected downtempo confections)

Puracane - In Limbo: The Lost Puracane Sessions
(a bunch from the vaults)

Various - Comfort Stand Sampler
(uberquirky DIY tunes from some talented bedroom musicians)

Skalpel - Konfusion w/ Konfusion - 1958 Breaks
(can't get enough of the two talented Poles)

Various - Digging Down 01: An Exploration Into Mush Records
(lickle bit o' hip, lickle bit o' hop, nonstop headnod rock)

Oh that's interesting. I've been working in the Wall Street area for almost two months now.
