Renting the film is worth it as there are some informative extras on the DVD that are worth seeing. As wonderful as the movie was (and it really was) seeing the few that are left with the addition of some newer Funk Brothers in concert was so incredible. All this feel good music with a crowd of peop...

I was reading through an old thread that pointed to this one. For those interested in the historical aspect of this, I found a really interesting -- 95 tracks on four CDs and it incl. 60-page booklet thats a good read.

I recall dancing to "Shake Rattle And Roll" with a fairly prominant DJ and he mentions it was one of his favorite songs. He was all kidding around and being silly (which is cool and fun) - I mention something about it being such a dirty song. Said leader is literally hoping around being a one eyed c...

Ooh I love Sinners Prayer... only have two versions, Eric Clapton & Ray Charles, I wonder if it will be any different than the one I already have. *shrugs* Back to the request stuff. It was at a wedding and not a swing dance but the stuff that was being spun for hours before was; instrumental jazz t...

I think its a matter of expectation and perspective. When some small scenes have tried to make an exchange, their expectations can be unrealistic and try for a huge extravaganza. To me some of the smaller events I have been to were fun because they were, what they were - smaller events. I see nothin...

Kalman, if just over a month was like a million years ago my friend, then that would make you ten-thousand years older than sand! I've always been an advocate for showing off the city of the exchange. What makes the city unique? Do things dance and non-dance that are fun and social that show off you...

Long story...

This happened to me last weekend only it was not just a question of a bathroom break. I was feeling quite ill. Luckily the WC wasn't too far away. I tried to stabilize myself and then looked for a long song and hightailed it to the Women's WC. Well, it turns out there were 2. One was out of order an...

I wasn't able to do it at the time... both cause I was tried, overwraught and busy but also cause I make it a habit of not dealing with things I am angry about till I have calmed down. It prevents me from doing stupid things. Now this is after the fact... should I do this on my own? Talk to the 3rd ...

A few weeks ago I was at an event that I was asked to DJ at. It was a fun event but there were many hours of DJ time to fill both during the day and at night and there were only 3 of us. I still found fun from DJing but there were times where it defiantely was 'work' and a royal pain in the ass. Whe...

DJ: no penis required

I might have registered here when the board 1st came out... or I was just lurking I don't remember. What I do remember is that for some time it was really NOT appealing to me. There are/were a lot of Female DJs and dancers out there who feel/felt similarily and a few conversations seemed to have gon...
