I definitely incredibly pumped, but I haven't left yet and still need to go grocery shopping and pack by the crack of dawn on Sunday! So the stress/panic is still there. Basically I only have today after work and all of tomorrow to get my shit together. And I've got a lot of shit to put together.

Drink some coffee and fucking go. It always ends up taking longer than you think. Also, giant freezer bags are your friend for organizing everything and minimizing dust.

If you really wanna get in the spirit, BMIR is now LIVE, with actual jockeys. Not just disembodied endless music streams and ads.

lol... thanks for the link.. tuned in just in time to hear what sounds like some Parliament funkadelics!

Great way to get through the work day before hopping on a plane for a most excelent adventure(Bill and Ted Re-run was on last night).

Hopefully I'll have enough time to clean my BM induced disaster area apartment before I leave.

I have been checking out the internet feed of BMIR, but the audio level is very low. Checked using both the Android app on my phone (which I want to use on my trip up from LA on Sunday) and on a real computer. When I tried the app before BMIR was live on on the air in BRC a week or so ago, it seemed loud enough, but now even with the volume turned all the way up it is weak and hard to hear. I am guessing it is about 15 - 20 dB lower than Pandora for example. Anyone else having this issue? Anyone know an email that I can send this note to? Hoping that it can be fixed soon (maybe just turning a dial? or clicking on a digital adjustment?). Thanks
