Swedish House Mafia.
One of the biggest things that happened to electronic dance music in the 00s.
Sad, but happy too. My ex and I were both fans of the Swedish House Mafia and I can equate this trio break-up as the last chapter of my “moving on” :)
Thanks for all the memories SHM! And to all the people around me when we were all recent fans of their music. Only good memories, only good vibes - keep dancing and don’t stop feeling it!
Not my scene, not your scene. Dance music is ours!
I miss my cat.
Lucky to have this. You know how hard it is to score a boyfriend in NYC? Very. Ironic how there are so many gay boys here, but it has been a tough city to get one I like for me. Had countless of disaster dates before this one.
I guess it can be compared to that pattern of having the kid who lives 5 minutes away from school always be the one late in class. You know? Like, you think it’s okay, you give yourself enough time, you relax cause school is just there, but you end up late. The influx of gay in nyc, will make you feel like, ah, there are so many fishes, you give yourself enough time, you relax cause boys are just there, but you end up not reeling your rod.
Or it could be that I just happen to stumble upon someone who really stood out in the school of gay fishes. I think it’s more that one. We have the same name too - it never fails to amuse me whenever I think about it.

Heartbreaking news. One of my closest friends in NY is going back to manila <\3 We’ll take this exact same picture when you come back a few years later! I’ll miss you lil bro (Taken with Instagram)
My NY rave family <3
Yesterday was so awesome. Good vibrations all the way. Maybe because I’m in a better state now compared to my dark days in Vegas. LOL
I’ve seen a lot of people in NY with these 22” skateboards called Penny. And… seeing the ad, seems like it’s target market is clear. Next stop, Williamsburg. Do I want one? Yes.
Butchered my room today. Painted it red, and it was a horrible paint job (got a d in art in 6th grade). So I went crazy and turned it into draculas room. Now if you get too drunk and sleepover and you’re having a nightmare, you’ll wake up to another nightmare.
Never seen a snake in a club before until I attended circus with this cool kid dennis at webster hall last weekend.
I am as empty as this subway train right now. I moved to ny 2 weeks ago btw. What am I doing? Lol
A prick, an injection, and a cup full of piss.
Two days ago I got tested for HIV. The result was negative and all unsafe actions from 3 months and beyond are now absolved. Hoo. The idle moment in the waiting room was almost unbearable, my mind won’t stop screaming and my feet were tapping crazy.
I’ve been called a slut, whore, and a big bad influence homo as a joke (or a half-meant insult) but I never really paid attention until they were the only words I can hear in that facility. If by “slut” you mean to have sex with multiple partners like a bunny, then i swear on my favorite Ben Sherman shirt that I am not a slut! I tend to have long term relationships and I only sleep with my partners.
What about random strangers? What about random strangers… I blame my loneliness! This is probably the only reason why I create minute-relationships with dozens of guys. In case you were wondering, it doesn’t involve sex! Company and presence is what I truly seek and it is amazing when the other person just wants that temporary pacification of loneliness as well!
Anyway, it is starting to feel like i am trying too hard to prove that i am not a whoreifying little asian butt. Which I probably am, because I can be a whoreifying little asian butt at times. My biggest concern was about something I did during the time my sobriety was out of reach - wired like a fuckin overcharged battery! My point is, no matter how responsible you might be and no matter how strong you grasp your moral standards, if you are placed in the wrong time with the wrong people consuming the wrong things, you still might end up doing the wrong things! I’ve learned how to avoid situations like that no matter how much loneliness kills. Make it a point that a negative result is an obvious result rather than a blessing!
Practice safe sex.
Alter your consciousness ONLY with the right people.
Know your status for yourself and for the people around you!
My iTunes wasn’t blessed with an abundance of good songs this year. I had so much going on with my life that I forgot to pay attention.
- Levels - Avicii The year of the Avicii. Didn’t that catchy use of Etta James voice from “Something’s Got A Hold On Me” get stuck in your head. It never got annoying too! Pleasure? pleasure! pleasure?!
- The Wilhelm Scream - James Blake The most innovate artist I discovered this year. I’d describe his music as an orgy of dubstep, soul, chill, and experimental.
- Holocene - Bon Iver This is one beautiful record, but I don’t think I can listen to it in the near future. This was the soundtrack of my life when I was going downhill in Vegas. Maybe in the future, when I can pleasurably emote to it.
- Midnight City - M83

It was the year of Moombahton emerging
It was the year when top 40 was heavily influenced by electronic dance music
