this is why i love the radio. because i can come in all headachey and hungry and thinking of everything i haven't done yet and still have to do and worrying that i just ran past the teacher who's still expecting a deferred assignment (or four) that i'm nowhere near finished yet and planning the upcoming trip south of the border even though there's nothing for me to plan and wishing that i didn't have to do this right now and that maybe i should have called caelen in to cover for me afterall . . .
. . . and i'll be a bit snarky for a minute when there's 5 other people in the room when i get there (it's tiny here. if you don't know that, you should come visit my show sometime) and because torsten (the dj who's after me) got here before me and has already gone halfway through the playlist, taking things out, organising everything and not letting me touch his piles . . .
. . . and then once the music starts playing, one song leads into another, inspiring the whole show right there even though i didn't have a plan at all, and i find a band like hrsta or mice parade or oneida or death in vegas that i didn't know before, or new albums from spoon or but it all just works out, and i'm still hungry and i still have a headache but that doesn't really matter so much anymore and i've stopped thinking about everything else that might matter.
all i've gotta worry about now is that i'm playing enough canadian content.
