DJ Rush @ SO36 Berlin.
Thursday, November 09, 2006
Went and saw the great DJ Rush at SO36 last night. It's been a few years since I've seen him. Phenomenal. He's got that charisma 'cause he's tall. He's like a head-and-a-1/2 taller than me, I looked. I play like 138-140 BPM tops and people are always whining and talkin' shit about how I play too hard, I play "DJ tools," it's boring, slow it down, blah blah blah, right? Rush comes on and it's like 155 BPM, just bangin'. Straight-up techno/schranz/gabber beatdown. 2 1/2 hours. Crowd going insane. And they stayed with him through his whole set! The same people were on the dancefloor from beginning to end. He had me at hello, that's for sure. When he finished, they were all over him, taking pictures like paparazzi. Total rock star. When I finish playing it's like OK, thanks, get the fuck out.
OK, not really =)
Saw Dash and Nico a.k.a. DJ Dry, this girl Tina, whom I know from around Berlin, Conna, Pacou, all the usual SO36/Tresor suspects. Hung out with my new best friend Stephi, aka DJ Chroma S.
, also from Berlin. I met her at Watergate a couple of weeks ago, we've been cool ever since. She's got a really sexy Joan Jett-type vibe to her. Funny girl, too. She was on my guest-list =)
Tonight, went and saw a documentary, "Black Deutschland." It was half in English, so I understood half of it. Darius James was in it. He invited me to the screening. We hung out a bit afterwards at this bar. He's a different breed than I usually get to meet, I like that.
Oh, and the "Slices" DVD with my interview in it comes out 15 December.
So the good news is the Dems now control the Senate
and the new Speaker of the House is the first female ever to hold the title.
And fucking Rumsfeld fell on his sword. And Britney broke up with K-Fed.
I can now say I am proud to be an American, something I haven't been able to say since 2000.
The bad news is that Ed Bradley from "60 Minutes" died.
I was really rocked by that news, I liked him a whole lot. A super-cool old guy I wanted to grow up to be like. I still hope to one day. He was 65.
Let me split, I'm kinda sad about that right now.
