Wanna be down?

A misconception a lot of people have about me being a DJ is that "Oh, you must get all the chicks hollerin' at you!" It's only partially true. They're usually not there to hit on the DJ because he's got elevated status or his method of scratching and cutting produces a spike in hormones (though that would be awesome)... they're always playing nice and flirty to get their requested song played. Typical scenario is a hot chick comes up and asks "Can I request a song?" or "Can you play a song?" or "Do you take requests?" or "Do you have..."

My boy, Felix, has the best response ever when this happens:

"Ohhh...I'm sorry...but requests are reserved for regulars and groupies. Since you're not a regular, I AM currently accepting applications for groupies..."

This is how much I cared about that vid. I plugged my iPhone into the Camaro's cassette player just to amplify the music while I drove up to Blake's.

If that ain't love for ya', nothing is.

It's like being Bruce Almighty... without the ability to fix the lottery. *heh*

What might need to be added to this application is the very important question:

"What songs or artists do you consider as "hip-hop"?"

WAHAHAHA... You Sir have won a free drink for that one.

I always thought that it would be a cool thing to be a club dj. What song do think always gets a reaction from the crowd when you play it?

This is actually a good Q. I'll answer that in an upcoming post since I can go deeper into the psychology of DJ'ing.

Damn, I just realized that this application could be adapted to a multitude of other different things, stand-up comic and barista come to mind first for some reason.
