7 Reasons Stacey Dash Should Run for Republican President

May 29, 2014

Actress Stacey Dash

Recently, Actress Stacey Dash joined Fox news as a paid contributor. Looking at this, this inspires a list on why she should run for President on the Republican ticket.

1. She’s black (or at least part-black). Republicans have a hard time attracting people of color.  Having ex-Klan members like David Duke running on their ticket does them no favors.  Plus when the black guy became President, the slogan “Take Back Our Country” really pissed many people off.  All of sudden, it’s take our country back when the black guy wins.

2. She’s a woman. After saying stupid shit about abortion, Republicans should at least fake they aren’t anti-women.  They aren’t even trying to hide the fact.

Stacey Dash would be the perfect front. “Our nominee is two things.  She’s black and she’s a woman.”

Seriously,  GOP, you need to do something about your image.  The white male image is so 20th Century.

3. She looks better than Michelle Bachmann.  On the real tip, everyone knows many people prefer looks over character.  Since both ladies are conservatives, who would you rather look at?

Or this ethnic beauty?

4. Her booty looks better than Sarah Palin’s.  It’s all about image.

Look at Sarah Palin’s booty!  This booty will not attract black and Latino male voters!

Now, as for Stacey?!  Shee-it!  Even a liberal like me might vote Republican. That ass inspires ten rap songs about booty.

5. When it comes to making actors President, Republicans are successful at it.  Ronald Reagan. Do I need to say more?

The only reason Governor Schwarzenegger can’t become President is because his native country is Austria.  If that wasn’t in the way, Governor Terminator would have became President Terminator.

6. She’s a light-skinned black woman.  I have to be real.  The first black Miss America was light-skinned and blue-eyed.

As many praised this as a black first, some folks called bullshit.  They believed blue eyes and light-skin should not represent black beauty.

Also, some people believe America didn’t appreciate booty until lighter-skinned Jennifer Lopez graced the screen.

If people were stupid then, who’s to say they still aren’t that stupid?

7. She probably can spell. If she can read a script, she probably can write clear American English.   So, if she starts holding up campaign signs, we probably won’t see signs like this.

This concludes the list.  Stacey  might not win.  Yet, you never know.  People did vote for George Dubya Bush twice.

3 Main Reasons Why Macklemore’s Jewish Costume was Offensive

May 19, 2014

After writing my previous blog on Macklemore’s recent Hebrew problems, I think I need to focus another blog on why what Macklemore did was dead wrong.

1. He dressed as a stereotypical Jew.  The image of the prominent nose is one of the worst stereotypical images aimed at Jews.

Macklemore jewish image and stereotypical jew

2. Like the meme says. his song was about being cheap.  Being cheap is a stereotype that has haunted Jews far too long.

3. He performed this on Shabbat.   I learned this from my Jewish friends. (Yours truly is African-American). Shabbat is the Jewish day of rest. Also, it happens on the seventh day of the week. On the Jewish calendar, the seventh day is a Friday, the same night Macklemore performed his caricature.

I don’t think he was aware of the Friday significance. Yet, I am not going to believe he wasn’t aware how controversial his act would be.

Then, again, for all I know, Mr. Ben Haggerty might be Jewish himself.

 

7 Things I Learned from My Three Year Old Blog

May 16, 2014

As of this month, The DJ Stone Crazy Spot is three years old.

These are seven things I learned from blogging on WordPress.com.

1. You don’t have to write 1500 word blogs. I really don’t know how that started. Yet, some of my more popular blogs definitely did not have 1500 words. Some had even less than 300 words. Some blogs contained a few words and a kick-ass meme I found on Facebook.

2. Booty pics attract more traffic than the written word. During the blogs first few months, Google sent more traffic my way because of booty pics. As the blogs main focus was music and laptop DJing, booty pics still brought the most traffic. To this day, it still does. Instead of reading about why a song sucks, many viewers prefer looking for big booty MILFs or big ass white girls. Currently, it’s Miley Cyrus pussy shots and Angela Basset’s booty.

3. Calling someone out in your blog does more psychological damage than you realize. Sometimes, after my blogs aims something nasty at someone, I  receive epic comments taking personal shots at me and my DJ skills. One coward decided to send me an e-mail taking potshots at me. After unfriending me on Facebook, another person posted my blog about her on Facebook, as she called me a loser DJ.

Why all this overreacting? The blog struck a raw nerve bordering on truth. If it wasn’t true, why write epic comments and aim nasty shots at me and DJ skills? In my lifetime, guilty folks are the only ones I know who behave this way.

4. You’re more likely to get pimp-slapped by a 300 pound transvestite versus getting sued for using copyrighted photos. I’m not condoning using copyrighted material. Still, as far as getting sued for doing it? That’s highly unlikely. First, you might receive a request to either take the photo down or give the photographer credit. Second, the photographer might tell your web host. Third, if you’re small fry, they know you don’t have any freakin’ money to sue for. For the record, I’m not a lawyer. Despite all this, you still might get sued for using a copyrighted pic. Still, that rarely happens to small fry bloggers.

5. Readers like lists. Yep, the blog experts had it right. Creating list blogs attract traffic. Still make sure it’s a subject folks will want to read. If folks no longer care about Jay-Z’s conflict with his sister-in-law, don’t you still write ten reasons why Jay-Z should have smacked her. If it’s a subject folks don’t care about, don’t go writing a list about it.

6. Current trends attracts plenty traffic. When Justin Bieber was arrested, I dug up memes making fun of his arrest. The blog attracted plenty of attention. When some idiots used Martin Luther King Jr, in twerking flyers, that blog not only gained a lot attention, a more popular website linked to it. The reason I always post pics of Miley Cyrus is because I know folks will come looking for them, especially if it’s something she did recently.

7. Making fun of white people attracts traffic. (Controversy attracts traffic.) I once noticed people searching my blogs wanting to know what music to play for white people. I knew the subject was controversial. That’s why I wrote it. I wrote it over a year ago. To this day, that blog still attracts traffic.

After three years on this blog, that’s what I learned.

Seven Important Reasons a DJ Should Blog

December 8, 2013

Some people recommend DJs having their own website, advice I agree with.  Done right, a website proves to be very beneficial.  Yet, I shall give seven important reasons why a DJ must start a blog.

1.     Blogs expose your services to new people:  On a blog, a DJ can advertise their services.  Many free blog sites don’t allow this.  So, the DJ may want to invest money in a self-hosted sited, a site where you yourself control the content.  Free blog sites are known to play the censorship game, which can lead to a blog being deleted.

2.    The DJ keeps a loyal fan base: When folks see themselves in a DJ’s blogs, the more likely they will keep coming back to the DJ’s night.

3.    Fans know more about you:  When people see the real you, they may respect you even more.  Of course, if they see you’re a jerk and don’t appreciate them, they may refuse returning to your nights.

4.    Opportunity to expose the music you really like:  Some people realize a DJ may play certain music as a compromise.  They may play a shitty song because the crowd likes it.  Yet, some folks are dying to know the music the DJ really likes.  They want to know what the DJ plays on their car stereo or what music they upload on their smart phones. This goes back to people learning more about you, the third benefit I mentioned.

5.    Opportunity to expose your mixes:  I’m a little shaky on this one.  If you want to expose your mixes, a blog will help you.  Yet, here’s the thing; many web visitors own a short attention span. Because of that, many folks may not be willing to listen to a whole mix.

6.    Unlike some websites, blogs are easier to post:  Websites you have to learn codes just to post a paragraph or two.  Not so with blogs.

7.    Venues respect you more. (At least, the smart ones do.):  Most venues welcome any publicity.  Because I can easily post it on Facebook, I usually don’t post upcoming gigs on my blog.  Yet, I always post details of how the event went on my blog.  If it was good, that’s good publicity for the venue.

There are other benefits.  Yet, because I didn’t experience them personally, I avoided posting them.  I have heard of people receiving free things because of blogs.  Companies give free products for bloggers to review. Plus I have heard of people making money from ads placed on blogs.  Like I mentioned before, I have never experienced that.  Still, it doesn’t mean that won’t work for other DJs.

So, there you have it, seven reasons for having a DJ blog. Digital DJ Tips lists more reasons. Hopefully, this inspires other DJs.

Five Real Reasons Why Your Favorite Bar DJ Is Now Gone

December 6, 2013

One night, you go to one of your favorite bars and you notice the DJ’s absence.  What happened?  Usually, not what you’ve been told.  Here are five reasons.

1. Responsibility for the night changed hands:  The DJ probably talked to a different person before gaining a spot.  As that person is no longer in charge of the night, the new person comes along and screw things up.   Sometimes, they may replace the DJ with mediocre bands or with another DJ.

2. The venue pissed the DJ off:  Some folks are skilled leaders.  Others aren’t.  Non-leaders need to sit down somewhere because they are prone to fuck things up.  If the DJ is bringing your venue money, why would you want to piss the person off?  How do venues do this? I’ll give an example.  First, some folks who think the world revolves around them complain about the music.  Some of these people show up once in a blue moon, or they rarely spend much money in the venue.  Yet, they complain when things don’t go their way.  So, what does the venue do?  They cater to them anyway and attempt persuading the DJ to the do same thing.  The DJ must now play music for people who don’t bring the bar much business.   Now, the DJ is pissed, pissed-off so much they leave.

3. The venue doesn’t respect DJs: I think live entertainment is overrated.  There.  I said it.  Nothing against musicians.  Yet, the right DJ can bring in as much money or even more money than a mediocre band.  Still, some venues desperately want to be seen as a live venue bar, even if it’s putting them in the hole.  If one now sees bands instead of the DJ, not respecting DJs is exactly what happened.

4. The venue is being cheap: If another DJ now plays, one may want to compare what this person is being paid compared to the last person.  If the new DJ is making less money, there’s the reason why the last DJ got fired.  The venue wanted someone cheaper.

Also, some venues think playing Pandora off a laptop can replace a DJ.  They do this by hooking a laptop up to the venues sound system. Why go this route? Again, the venue is trying to be cheap, which leads to the last point on why the DJ is gone.

5. The venue is having financial problems:  Of all the reasons, I’m willing to bet this is the main reason a DJ gets fired.  The venue itself may have pissed-off too many patrons, too many patrons that are now not returning.  Instead of admitting their screw-ups, the venue blames the DJ.  Some will even publicly badmouth the DJ.  Yet, the real reason may be the venue no longer can afford the DJ, one of the reasons they may all of a sudden want to play Pandora off a laptop.

So, there you have it.  Can DJ skills contribute to a DJ being fired?  Of course.  Still, experience tells me that is the least reason a DJ gets fired.  More than likely, one of the reasons I mentioned may be the real cause of the DJ’s absence.

Facebook Booty Pages 2

April 11, 2013

Again, I’ve decided to hook my readers up with some Facebook booty.  First, let me say this.  These are not porn or nude sites.  WordPress does not allow blogs connecting to those kinds of pages.

Big Booties & Thick Chicks: Much of the booty is camera phone booty, the kind where the lady poses her booty in a mirror and photographs it.

Big Booty At Its Best: I ain’t going to front. Some of the booty shouldn’t have been posted on this site. Plus I don’t care for its advertising ad space for businesses.  Yet, most of the booty on this site will not disappoint.  On here, the viewer will see different shades of booty.

Big Booty Stars: This another site promoting different shades of booty.  Here you will find Grade A booty.

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.
