I spend most of my time working at a place with the local crappy lite pop station piped in to all the examination rooms. I guess the labotomy-esque quality has a soothing effect on the patients. Today Andy sent me the link to KEXP. I am at my desk tonight working on charts and LOVING the programming...

When I used to run ISDN DJ stuff, I was contacted and asked to buy an ASCAP/BMI license. The purchase would have worked out the the equivalent of like $1/song played each Wednesday night. I responded with proof of our NFP status and also with the average amount of $ brought in each week - barely cov...

I have loved him for years. I am kind of backwards. I discovered Red Allen through Pee Wee. My favorite work of his isn't really danceable - it's a vinyl of his called Ask Me Now! Pee Wee plays Monk & Coltrane - it's kind of a weird concept, but it's damn good. OH COOL - As I sit here looking at it,...

Julius has djed ONCE in his life, by the way.... ...which supports MY theory is that a post count is completely UNRELATED to one's ability. More specifically, I just think that a vast majority of posts, ESPECIALLY ones that are spent validating one's own quality, are a waste of my time. I DO love po...

I have to admit that I agree with Mike. The reminders that have been issued re: conduct are random. Though I like the idea of this board and many of the discussions, I tend not to post. I truly do enjoy exploring different viewpoints, but when I had to read Lawrence's derogatory post re: Reuben's lo...

When I first read Julius's quote, I thought, "YES!" Having mulled it over for a bit, I now realize that his view is my opinion of how I choose what I will dance to at this point in my experience. Bear with me on this slippery slope. I am not going to be so obnoxious as to tell ANYONE what sucks. For...

I play what I want. Sometimes what I want is guided by what I see happening on the floor. Sometimes I want to break up an energy; sometimes I want to build it. Sometimes I just don't give a shit and I play to the voices in my head. It works. I've gotten flamed in the past on forums for seeming not t...
