Well, that was... Fun?

Started the Thursday nights at Labyrinth last night. Things started off smoothly, everything was going great. The people were nice, the music was good. I don't know what happened as the night went on, but all of a sudden some 30-something chick was drunkenly babbling at me. Something about the Renaissance and having long hair. I had played my mix of Thorns, and apparently she was angry she didn't get to wobble around like some kind of Edwardian alcoholic with an inner ear infection because the bridge in Thorns just sounded better with some Monty Python mixed in. C'mon, you can't take Wumpscut too seriously. As the night progressed further, the percentage of people there who managed to keep a hold on their mental faculties declined dramatically. All of a sudden some chick is going off on the "paying customer" rant because I wouldn't play what would have been the FIFTH Depeche Mode track that night, with three songs left until close, less than 15 minutes since I completely broke music styles by playing the New Order track she wanted. Quite frankly, if I wanted to be a jukebox, I would have rented myself out to Wurlitzer. Needless to say, if she ever approaches the booth again she's going to have a short and unpleasant encounter with Ron and the street, in that order. I had four people enjoying the Tom Jones song I put on instead. Looking forward to next week, but I have to remember to bring my screwdrivers to take apart the CD deck and get Preety's mix CD back out. Yes, the Lab's equipment _still_ doesn't work.

Long story short, this night needs a better crowd. That's where you come in. Come out for a while, it's cheap and comfortable, and if we all start coming, we'll all have friends to talk to. By all means, bring requests, it's a small club and needs energy. Speaking thereof, sweet mother of god am I tired.

Props for playing New Order. You can never go wrong with that band...

Didn't realize you were one of the other DJ's... you prolly had mentioned it to me, but I can get rather absent minded at times. My apologies for not showing up and I'll try to hit the night in the future - that's a good distance on a weeknight with work the following morning however...

Post playlist and promote like crazy - it should take off

At that point I was just playing whatever came to mind, we were trying to get the damn deck to eject Preety's CD while people were requesting stuff that was on it. Bizarre Love Triangle is a neat song, I didn't mind that.

Definitely, the more the merrier. Hope to see you next week.

Getting people out to the Lab on Thursdays will be tough. Suggestion: Dedicate a night to powernoise and jpop and I'm so there ;)

You got it, I was wanting to bring out some MLada Fonta and/or Noisex, but I was afraid I'd scare the Necto crowd.

Just fine, still looking for a better job. You mean the email from Lexie's journal when I couldn't tell who you were talking to?

No, you gave me your email quite the while ago at city but I don't remember you sending any replies. Heh, we talked about Final Fantasy online and the fat women that play it.
