Questions about "Trendy" [30 Oct 2006|01:39pm]

I have to do a paper on being trendy for my Writing Class. It's a research paper, and I wanted to sort of interview people, and I figured an easy way to interview would be through livejournal. So if any of you have ever worked at somewhere really trendy...I need your opinions. If you do anything really trendy...I need your opinions. I need to know why those things are trendy, why you do things that are trendy...from your point of view. Just tell me why you think certain things are trends, how they catch on and so forth. Leave me comments with your answers.

A friendly neighborhood reminder [21 Aug 2006|10:07am]

Hey everybody.

This is just a friendly reminder. This Friday, the 25th, Revolver will be back with DJ? Strange and DJ Ernesto spooning out the phat beatz with DJ_DvlsAdvct. The only non-descript dance night in Albany. Is it goth? Nope. 80’s? Nope. Metal? Nope. It’s a little bit of everything for your listening, dancing, grinding and stomping pleasure. Come one, come all and be entertained by the music, new and old, that defines us all.

New music will be brought to you by
Crash Frequency Records
Metropolis Records
and more stuff if I can get it before then
There may be some Glitch Mode Records and, well, some other stuff that may very well be enjoyable.

Hope everyone is well, as usual.

Feel the pain and keep it all until you dieCollapse )

This is no apology
Hey everybody.

Once again, Revolver will be on time, last Friday of the month, August 25th, for your listening and dancing pleasure. Albany’s darkest alternative dance night (literally, we have barely any lights going) would like to welcome you to stomp, sway, swirl and grind to your favorite songs. This month you will be hearing your resident DJ_DvlsAdvct spin your industrial, goth, downtempo, hellektro, EBM, metal, maybe some hip-hop, covers and new shit with DJ Strange? and DJ Ernesto. We will be going from midnight to 4AM, and perhaps, if DJ_DvlsAdvct gets off his lazy ass and stops sucking he’ll get mixes to anyone through the door, included in admission.

Also, expect to hear new music from
Crash Frequency Records
Metropolis Records
and more stuff if I can get it before then
Maybe some Glitch Mode Recordsand, well, if I can get my hands on it some Helltrash

Hope everyone is well, as usual.

So the spouse and I have a nice wooden kitchen table and 4 chairs we're trying to get out of the house, we're asking about $80 for the set

we also have a kitchen island, also wood, for about $35

they're both light wood and we'd like them out of the house

I'd post pictures, but with the ceiling being redone, and the floor being refinished there isn't a great way for me to get a shot of them. We can get to them to get them out of the house. Everything is in great condition, the table is actually separated from the legs for storage reasons...but they can easily be put back on.

Anyone Interested In Booking A Tattoo Party? [14 Jul 2006|06:07pm]

Go visit the site, add it as a friend:


Here's the bulletin:

Right now I'm looking primarily for feedback.
A buddy of mine that Inks wants to do Tattoo parties with me.
We're located in Troy, NY

The concept is simple, You get a bunch of people together, we come over, I show my designs and you either pick one, or have me sketch one, then he inks you.
Minimum cost per Tat will be $50.00, and that depends on the Tat.
Whoever throws the party pays $50.00 to bring us there, but that includes a small tat (Further tats can be purchased or a larger one can be purchased and they pay the difference).
It'll be something like a Tupperware Party, but you won't deny having gone the next day.

Get back to me with thoughts, questions, or even let me know if you want to book one.
If this seems to be popular, we'll start doing them in the next couple of weeks.

I have a huge collection of shoes, every so often I'll go through them ...

I have about 8 pairs right now that are leaving my closet.
They are either from Target or DSW, with one pair from TJ MAXX.
All size 7, all still in great condition.

I'm looking for between $5-$10 (depending on the shoe...c'mon, Steve Madden brocade mules, pale pink Nine West sling backs)
There are some dressy shoes, some sandals and even some winter boots.

If anyone is interested let me know.
