Penguin Gangsta Rap

April 21, 2013

Last Tuesday, I performed another DJ gig at The Peacock Room, an Orlando bar.  During my gig, a guy named The Shinobi MC was scheduled to perform.  Truth be known, I was expecting another MC with the name Shinobi.  Yet, this Shinobi’s performance did not disappoint.

The highlight of the evening was his performance with MC Shammers, an MC whose performance I witnessed before at a nerdcore event.

As the instrumental of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ten Crack Commandments” played, the two rhymed about being gangsta penguins.

An arm-wrestling competition was going to take place.  I was asked to play 80’s rock music.  Yep, I had the genre, including the likes of Winger and Whitesnake.

The host was my buddy Mandaddy.

The table was moved to another area.  There was both guy arm-wrestling and female arm-wrestling.

A leg on the table broke.  So, it was replaced with another one.

Oh yea, yours truly was talked into competing.  I won my first round (I believe dude let me win).  Then, got slammed during my second.

I had so much damned fun.  I hope the event happens again. The organizer said it will.   I’ll be there.

A Nasty, Mean-Spirited, LL Cool J Meme

April 13, 2013

I guess many folks are upset about “Accidental Racist” by LL Cool J and Brad Paisely. I’ll let Adam Tod Brown at Cracked.Com tell everybody how silly the song is.

Right now, let’s talk about this nasty meme I found on Facebook.  This is just wrong.  Even I wouldn’t stoop this low.  Bullshit, I definitely would stoop this low.  Robert “DJ Iceman” Anderson, a Facebook friend, reposted this on Facebook.

Seven Reasons I Love Being A DJ

April 9, 2013

happy hour 1

Saying I love DJing is an understatement.  Here are seven reasons I love it so much.

1. I’m a night person. Most gigs happen in the evening.  If being a DJ was mostly a morning thing, I would probably hate it.  I’m usually cranky and easily annoyed during the mornings.

2. Free booze. Well, most of the time you get free booze. I’m mostly a Bud Light drinker.  As I drink that cheap booze, I really won’t be breaking the bar or lounge.

3. I love music.  Even before I got into DJing, I’ve always collected music.  I’ve always bought and read music magazines too, magazines like Rolling Stone and The Source.

4. Young ladies half your age hit on you. Okay, this only happened once, and she was cute too.   When I’m talking half my age, realize I’m a dude in his mid-forties.  Nothing happened.  In all reality, I prefer women who are at least thirty.  Yet, a young lady half my age hitting on me does boost the ego.

5. Gives me blogging material.  Some folks enjoy my blogs involving people’s stupid behavior towards the DJ.

6. The friends.  I’ve met some wonderful people through DJing.  Some turned into good friends.

7.  The fun.  I ain’t going to change the world of DJing.  I have no plans or intentions to.  I’m mostly in it for the fun.  To quote Morris Day from the movie Purple Rain, “I wanna see asses wiggling and titties jiggling.”

Also, I’m not one of those music snobs who always badmouths commercial music.  A person may request the most stupidest song in the world,  Yet, if it gets people dancing.  I’m playing it.  Popped a molly!  I’m sweating!

If you’re a DJ, tell us why you love DJing in the comments section.

Prince Party at Orlando’s Castle Knights

April 7, 2013

Last night, I drove to Castle Knights, a bar located in Orlando.

Castle Kinghts Local Pub

 

My friend Frankie Messina hosted a Prince party, the main reason for my showing up.  All night, Frankie played not only Prince music, but also music by groups Prince produced in the 80’s including The Time and Vanity 6.

For over two decades, Castle Knights was once known as Faces, a lesbian bar.   As Castle Knights, the bar welcomes everyone.

There’s talks of me DJing a Friday Happy Hour.  Because Castle Knights  is full liquor, it just might be the right spot for me.

Regardless, it’s a nice joint that I may return to in the future.

Erotique Derrieres: An Art Book for Booty Lovers

April 4, 2013

Knowing my love for the female posterior, a friend recommended I purchase Erotique Derrieres by Carlton Books.  This was over a decade ago. Soon enough, I found the book  in the local Barnes and Noble bookstore and bought it.   Boy, did I find a shining jewel.  For booty lovers craving an artistic taste, this book is for you.

I only got one problem.  You don’t see any black women.  How are you going to put together a booty book with no sistas?  Despite Carlton Books existing in the UK, you can’t tell me they couldn’t find any European black women or any other European women of color.

Still, despite the lack of diversity, I recommend this to my readers.  On that note, here’s the deal.  Looks like the book is out of print. Yet, for a good deal on a used one, try looking on Amazon.  Starting at $8.95, you’ll see high prices going up to almost seventy bucks.  Yet, I only paid $14.95 plus tax for my book.

Blaming Bobby Brown

April 2, 2013

“Bobby ruined Whitney.”

 

These damned homosexuals won’t let up.

Keep on insisting Bobby Brown

caused Whitney Houston’s downfall.

Repeating the same damned thing

over and over again.

 

“Bobby ruined Whitney.”

 

Shame on me for trying to argue.

Shame on me for defending Bobby.

Shame on me for asking how can one man

cause so much damage to a grown-assed woman.

These damned homosexuals’ minds already made up.

 

“Uh-uh, he ruined her, honey.”

 

How do these homosexuals know?

Where they there?

Did they witness the whole thing

in the human flesh?

 

Makes me want to stop playing

Whitney’s music during DJ gigs.

Play Whitney’s music

and they start that shit again.

 

“Bobby ruined Whitney.”

 

These damned homosexuals just won’t let up.
