Another year goes by, and Tales of the U

Well here it comes.. I will be turning another year older.. 38 this year.. when i was 36 i said it was dirty six.. 37.. well it was suppose to be like heaven.. but well 38.. i got my b day gift from my employer a week early... I am currently unemployed and now applying for unemployment [gosh i kinda feel guilty.. I've only been been on unemployment once b4.. I've always had a job.. and im a hard worker.. heck I've almost alwyas had 2 jobs or did enough for 2's worth]

So anyway thanks in advance for any concerns condolences and what not.. my almost seven year relationship w/ my employer came to a close.. not how i wanted it but anyways its done.. and I need to find work... so i'm blogging to rant a little to 'network ' a little to seek advice and get in touch w/ peeps who i rarely see or blog to any more cos i was always so wrapped up in my job.

I have a ton of experience in the retail management cust svc. field.. like almost 20 yrs worth.. but i think i might branch out or try into insurance/ banking. sales cust svc. or even maybe try the state/ federal area.. I have been kinda looking the past 6 months..but not really cos i was wrapped up in my job.. well now after a week of being unemployed.. i am out to look for something more better and obvious a paycheck too.. hopefully something rewarding and not draining like y past job. I am all in when i commit to something, but there wasnt a balance in a long while.

So the search begins.. any tips network advice, wanna hire me, buy me a drink.. just be a friend, or rant also about the downturn of the
local, national and global economy.. etc.. sure whatever.. i'm game.

In other news.. I will unofficially officially be celebrating my Bday @ Mowhawk place for the Transmission night.. of New order vs. Depeche Mode music battle night on 10/18 fitting since 10/15 will be my b day.. come say hi buy my a drink.. listen to awesome tunes [ 2 of my fave classic alternative bands

it starts @ 1030pm?. and goes till ? its minimal $
and i'll be there. along w/ other cool music and ppl.. hope to see ppl out.. and re'-nerwork w/ ppl i havent seen in awhile.. mayeb have a laugh or 2 and maybe make soem professional contacts too..


thas all

if anyone wants the story and stuff i'm sure you'll ask.. maybe i'll tell ya

thanks in advance for being supportive cool ppl .. you all know who u are...

Come out Tonight! to Diablo and Mohawk !

Come out Tonight! to Diablo and Mohawk ! Please Support!

I hope to see some of you peeps out tonight at my gig @ DIABLO AND TECHNOIR @ Mohawk. I will be dropping a closing set. from round 2am-4am [note i think technoir finishes @ 3am so , one more hour of dancing for the techno hardcore ;-)] but i will be @ TECHNOIR in support of the 2 bands : Silent Auction and DIGITAL GEIST! b4 their dance party! and a cool theme @ technoir [postapocalyptic], where as UV fridays is futurtistic anyways so they both work..

Please support both these nights if you can as I do endorse and support both, I know it's tough and gas isn't cheap. but these nights and venues are within stones throw of one another... you'll be saving gas because there so close, just save those few extra bux [1drink= $5] for admission to both venues so that the bands and dj's can get some compensation for the nights @ both venues! they do it mostly out of the love of music and the scene, but they have bills records or music downloads and future gigs to plan/pay for too.

<img src="">

<img src="">

[note if these don't post or link google search diablo and mowhawk place and im' sure you can get directions]

As an incentive i wanted to get a mix cd to hand out to ppl. who supported both nites, but as fate has it the Cd wont be ready in time for me to hand out 2night [darn work responsibilities! lol] so i will hand out my dj biz cards to those who ask and maybe have a digital download or something like that in the future or meet up at a future UV or TECHNOIR nite. [I will get those interested info in the future.] Please do support these nights as I firmly believe in those parties,[ promoters and organizers] and Dj's and artists who participate in both. etc, who try and keep what left we have of our fading music scene alive.


Dance, Drink, Spin, Party on!

Curt - Dj Soma

below are the fliers and who i am and what i look like for those who donnt know.

Category: Goals, Plans, Hopes

I give thanks...

I give thanks for those i have in my life and those who i have lost... all are not forgotten
i give thanks for the dreams i still have and the hardships... i face despite adversity
i give thanks for having experienced love.. maybe i'll truly experience it again... hopefully next time for keeps
i give thanks for all friends and family both past present and future for they are who that make me
i give thanks for music ... truly what soothes my soul and constantly keeps a beat for me.. despite me marching to a different drum
i give thanks for all the positive and the negative too.. they have truly given me perspective of what i have.. what i had and what i want again and hope to have in the future
i give thanks for all the positive energy and resources i find to tap upon when all seems lost and distant.. sometimes i truly amaze myself
i give thanks for all the truth and upholding of what is right what is often the narrower path despite the world and all ppl trying to get ahead, many by many means neccessary
i give thanks for the good and the bad... i know my path although harder is righteous and true... and to see that i don't want to convert to that other side... and be one of 'them'

i give thanks...
hopefully someday i can be thanked for ... find like minded souls w/ my perspective..

yeah i know long time no post.. life has been quite interesting since last post...

truth serum

I have no idea what the hell happened.. I think there's truth serum in alchol somtimes...

wtf was i thinking in confession;
wtf was i thinking in lowering my cguard
again i played my cards and showed my hand
in the grand game of poker.. they kept straight faces and
bested my best hand

i got cleaned out

i was never very good at cards

i was never good at having a poker face

i never did hear those fabled stories and the absolute of truths

guess its like the song sez, gotta know when to hold em, know when to fold them, know when to walk away.. know when to run...

excellent game..
the funny thing is when u still enjoy the game even though you don't realize you've been bested..

best hand i always draw is one of a kind: me: Soma

whens the next shuffle..?

Dance like no one is watching, Love ....

Well there has been soo much goin on @ work and stuff that I havent had much time to blog though a lot has gone thru my mind this past week and such

1st I truly have enjoyed meeting so many ppl from estrip @ the party.. Tony b-day party.. I realized that i do know sooo many ppl in buffalo and there are only 2 degrees of separation... thas why i never burn any bridges [or at least try not to..] i'm glad i got to meet a lot of you and speak w/ most of u, [tony,paul, timika, carey, yvonne, bill, an more... i did see alex, but i unfortunately didn't get to speak w/ her, and sawa few more.. etc.. well i'll go into it later.. but anyway cool ppl all round

2nd its busy @ work but i see more calm for some reason, must be that i have more things that i'd like or rather be doin than work but the hope and thoughts about doin them has rested my soul a bit than being just work work work

3rd i know more about me who i am what i want where im goin.. just trying to get there is a lifelong process.. but i am enjoying the jorney, sittting slightly back a bit in the chair, of the driver seat, gives a little more perspective.... than the in your face now , approach to life...

4th i am being more patient about meeting ppl. who, some i'd like to be friends with, other i'd like to be friends and more.... the delicate balance of such things... its just yes im cool w/ being friends, and i'd be cool with being more... sometimes being human and feeling invisible aren't the best feelings... esp when you don't want to
ruin either a budding friendship or build a potential relationship...

5th well i need to go out more and well i am dammit... i will be @ OPM tonight for the Quivver [john Graham] and Charles Feelgood show.. it will be an awesome time.. I will be @ the bar.. relaxing and getting my groove on.. who's with me see ya there.. say hi if i don't see ya or recognize ya.. and the science of Soma dancing will be in full effect...

there fore my title in a snapshot

'Dance like no one is watching, love like you've never been hurt.. live like today is your last day...'

simple words... applying them to your life and 'today' is the challenge...

gotta fly off to work see ya later @ OPM club e peeps
