As part of the many things I do, I occasionally DJ. While this sounds pretty glamorous, its not really, unless you happen to hit the right spot at the right time and you get swamped with barely legal boobies. Here's a clue: never happened to me.

The stars denote requests. Oh, and those requests were played through a goddamn ipod. I hate spinning with an mp3 player. Its just fucked. Also, the stuff requested isn't part of my game. It just threw me off. That's because the audience was meager (worse than usual) and was mostly composed of death metalheads. Now, I dont particularly hold a grievance against metal (I am more of an old school gent in the sound I prefer) any more than I have a grievance against Jesus; its their fans I cant stand. Metal fans are the absolute worst as far as disrespecting protocols, as in thematic nights. I really dont care how many of you are out there, or your proportion in regard to the attendance, if you're not out at a metal night, or some sort of open alternative night, then fuck you, we're not going to play your shit. Its like expecting the Rolling Stones to play some Iron Maiden, cause you're a bunch of Maiden fans. That is disrespectful.
Also, you guys seriously grunt and growl way too much. And your shit all sound the same.
All that to say that was off my game and I cant say that I was very focused in my set, with the interference, some screw ups and some missed spins due to distraction.
And fuck you, death metal dudes. Seriously.
