“Look at me, I am the DJ now” - DJ Captain Phillips, my alter ego. Busting out some records new and old for tomorrow night at @nightingalempls! I’ll be playing some funk, disco, r&b, house and more from 10-2! They serve their full menu until close, and it’s a super charming atmosphere. Come hang with me for a while, it’s gonna be funky!!

Hamilton was epic! Gripping, engaging, funny, sad, informative, interesting and just plain cool. The music is fantastic as is the staging and choreography. Go see it if you can!

One of the things I am most excited about at our new house is having a huge fenced in back yard. One of the biggest challenges of living in a condo was never being able to have some friends over for a BBQ, etc. A more recent challenge of this condo life was Charlie the 🦊’s aversion to going on walks. He started to get a little comfortable in my place and walking in the park, but for the last few months (I think due to massive, loud construction projects in the building), trying to walk Charlie has been like pulling teeth (see pictures). But Charlie already loves his new yard! We have to bribe him with treats to get him to come inside. This morning, he snuck out the door as @sarapaulbunyan was leaving for work, to get a little more outdoor time! And that was after he’d already been outside for about half hour while Sara was getting ready! I’m excited for many aspects of having a backyard, but this one is the best! 🦊😊🍃🍂

After a mad dash of packing, clearing, and moving, I am pretty much ready for the movers to come tomorrow morning. It’s really starting to hit me that in a few hours I will wake up for the last time in my home of the past 10 years. It’s the longest I’ve lived anywhere in my life. I’ve lived here longer than I’ve known many of my closest friends. I was just barely starting to figure out who I was when I moved in, I was definitely just a kid then! It’s a strange feeling and I will miss this place and most of my neighbors. A lot of my long time neighbors had sold their places recently, and some kids much younger than me moved in. This weekend was symbolic: one of my new neighbors was having a party, and one of his guests did something rude, so I gave them a piece of my mind. I’m the grumpy old man now, not so much the partier. I’ll take it! But on Sunday after the Communion Closing Party, a few of my closest friends came by for one last hurrah, and I’m sure we stayed up way later than those rookies next door. Still got it!! It’s been a good run, but my time is up, and I am so ready for the next phase in life.
Here’s a picture @afromatics took of me posing in front of the wallpaper that came with the place when I bought it (foreclosed), textured and padded red brick, and the party flyer we used it for - the first ever party Drew, @elijahrome and I ever threw, the legendary Jean Jam

Communion closing party was epic as always! Here’s a little bit of my favorite set from the party by Cloudy Kid! Thanks for all your hard work and another amazing summer @stevencentrific @christianjamesmpls and the entire @communionsundays_mpls crew!

It looks pretty cool at Communion!

One of my favorite parties of the year happens tomorrow - the Communion closing party at Pourhouse downtown tomorrow from 2 PM to 2 AM! It’s bittersweet as it means the summer is over, but it’s a helluva blowout. 3 stages of music, running for a combined run time of over 30 hours, and there’s something for everybody at this. Here’s a beautiful (and mostly accurate) portrayal of the main outdoor patio “stage” by my friend Carolyn Kopecky and the schedule for tomorrow. Hope to see ya there!
