Big ups

Props to the ISA of Lehigh University and Zeta Psi @ Lafayette for a great dj'ing weekend! Shout outs to Mumojay for helping out at the Zeta formal. Great times!

Coming up next weeked - non-stop music at March Field in Lafayette for All College Day! Time to play some chill hip-hop blended with a flavor of sunny house.

In other news - I had an interview for the FOCUS/AKYSB internship in Tajikistan for this summer. I think I was way to nervous, but hopefully, things will work out. Inshallah.

Not much left to say except I have a book review to write. That's all. Badaye.

Time flies...

So I'm sitting in Mumojay's room, and listening to "Face The Music" by Conjure One (house mix). And I'm browsing through my CD cases, through some music from a long, long time ago. I saw a CD dated "September 2004". Wow - that makes it almost 3 years in college, still loving the music.

Wow.

2 gigs this weekend!

Lehigh ISA formal tonight, and Zeta Psi formal kesho. Busy but good times. If you're reading this and want to come, hurry up! I'll be spinning my favorite desi tunes mixed with a flavor of progressive house and bongolized treats!

DJ xmms is spinning tonight


For some reason, my XMMS can play at two different instances on one computer! I can DJ using linux now! PLUS the equalizers for each instance works individually! Check out the screenshot.You can thank me for your easy Xubuntu DJ'ing experience later.

Cheers,
Kheraj

Pursuit of Happyness

A great movie! And for a great past weekend! 2 gigs this past weekend - Lehigh and then Lafayette for the ISA formal - brilliant times :)

This coming weekend is going to be just as crazy - hopefully 3 gigs lined up! Lehigh Indian Students Association formal, Youth empowerment day at Fisher Field @ Lafayette, and then the Zeta Psi formal! Meatpacked.

In other news, the weather is getting warm, which is solid, very solid, news. Also, I've been thinking a lot about where my senior year will take me. It's going to be an interesting ride, considering what might happen this summer. I'm still waiting to hear on the FOCUS internship in Tajikistan, but I'm also trying to meet the FSD deadline for Kenya. Fast times...

Talk badaye.

Chakra - Home

Don´t be afraid, your world is dark tonight
For without love, how can your spirit sing?
You are a bird with wounded wings

You´re not alone
I´ve come to take you home
You´re not alone
I´ve come to take you home

I´ll show you life
I´ll heal your heart tonight
Everybody needs a helping hand
I can help you understand

You´re not alone
I´ve come to take you home
You´re not alone
I´ve come to take you home

You´re not alone

Virginia Tech Shootings

Yesterday, a student at Virginia Tech shot 32 people at his university - professors and students included.

You can read today's latest article on the shootings on the BBC website.

Things like this make me think about how safe we really are. You just never know. May the souls of the deceased rest in peace.

w00t!

Wow... Campus Pizza (of all places) was one of my favorite sessions last night. I played a mix of everything, and felt really good about it. People seemed to have enjoyed it too. Next weekend's sessions - at Lehigh and Lafayette - are hopefully going to be (at least) just as good, because I've been sampling some hot tracks lately.

I also went to Boston on Friday night, and I have to say - that 6-hour road trip with Mumojay at the wheel was completely worth it. Props to Neechi and Gebre for hosting some interesting conversational pre-games. We'll do it again sometime soon.

Back!

I'm back from spring breaking in Myrtle Beach - good times, but while the sun was shining, it was still chilly. Global Warming is really beginning to take on the world...when will we step up? That is a multi-billion-dollar question.

In other news, I am hoping that I'll be able to be accepted into the Aga Khan Foundation's FOCUS program this summer in Tajikistan! A few things are on the table, but it would be great to have the chance to do some humanitarian work on that side of the world. I can't wait to hear back from them. Inshallah, things will work out.

More updates coming soon...

Gloomy

So I'm still at Lafayette, just lounging for the day. Should be going back to New York in the next couple'ours. It's gloomy out, and seems like a typical Sunday. Can't wait to get all my work done in the next two days and then get out to Myrtle Beach!

I'm hearing Armin Van Buuren is going to be in Canada soon (or is playing out now), and that's pretty crazy...how he's been on the roll for a number of years now, and may be getting the djlist.com's voted number 1 position next year.

I've been thinking about getting monitor speakers for a while now, but when I heard Serdar's solo today (a small project he's working on), I went insane! Those monitors will definately be on the 'need to purchase' list. And next semester, deadline December 2007, we're going to try to come up with a track... from scratch. Good times.

For now, I'm going to kick back for the next 2 hours, welcome Mumojay back to Lafayette and then bounce.

Carpe Diem.

Gigs everywhere!

I am very happy to say that since the last time I posted on my blog, I have been successful in scouting out a few underground gigs here and there, mostly around Lafayette! I DJ'ed for an RA formal at Lehigh last week, and last night I was at Campus Pizza... good times.

I've been getting some insane electro beats, it's even surprising me! On top of all this, I had spring break, which is perfect for the coming warm weather. Going to be going to South Carolina on Wednesday to enjoy some beach and sun!

In other news, we (FAAP) hosted yet another successful fundraiser today - Change the World. The mapping out of the world went perfectly as planned, and pictures for that will be circulated pretty soon.

More news after spring break...
