To the guy on the cellphone walking down Ontario Ave. around 11:50 last night:

While I'm fully cognizant of the fact that I'm losing my hair, it was still nice of you to point it out to me.

Just back from Laurent Garnier @ Soundbar. It's the first time I've been out specifically to see a DJ in a long while and he didn't disappoint. From house to techno to micro to electro to breaks to industrial to rock'n'roll, he fused so many disparate styles so seamlessly it was mindblowing at times. It's not often you here a track sequence like: The Prodigy - "Out of Space" (remix) - The Rapture "House of Jealous Lovers" (remix) - The White Stripes "7 Nation Army" (remix) - a Nitzer Ebb remix - Nirvana "Lithium" MIXED together.

There's only one word for that: retarded.

He also played a Stone Roses remix, a New Order remix and tons of stuff I've never heard before but am gonna have to track down now...

The only downside of the night was forgetting my earplugs. It was loud in there and my ears are paying for it now.

I'm done with weekday shows for awhile. Besides feeling ubercrappy today, I'm still pissed that I completely hit the wall around 12:30 (just as LCD Soundsystem was about halfway through "Losing My Edge") and had to head home as I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. Regardless, LCD was even better than I expected and it was great running into a bunch of random people I wasn't expecting to see there.

Perhaps it's time to revive that speed habit I left behind eight years ago. At least then I'll be able to stay up till 1am.

ps: Jen: Please leave the setlist post "Edge" in the comment section. I might as well know exactly what I missed.
