i’m crazy for you, mr dj January 19, 2008

the dj has enjoyed a good run of adoration that shows no sign of slowing down. and that is one serious jacket.

clearly, these artists didn’t frequent townie clubs where fat fortysomething djs led the crowd in chants of ‘who ate all the pies?’

see comedy dj ray von from phoenix nights for an example of the wedding reception dj those of us who grew up in the 80s had to contend with. though slowly becoming extinct they can still be found in their natural habitat – a chicago rock cafe.

shit…what is going to happen to pete tong and brandon block in the ‘010s?

i need a little ghetto heaven December 3, 2007

xmas-lights.jpg 

so called ghetto names get a bad press. but why? what are people supposed to name their kids? madison? purlease…it’s the last bastion of racism. although the chavs get a similar pasting in the UK for naming their kids after cars and booze.

why can’t people just leave each other alone? you only have to look to celebrities for the stupidest names. apple? brooklyn?

don’t even get me started on bob geldof. the point of this post? well i was scrolling through itunes and realised that ghetto names are no new phenonenom and their owners are responsible for some cool music.
