not me! an accurate reflection of the events would be that i was hired to play a more 'glasgow' style of music (whatever that means) in the new style bar they had built called text - which i did for the first few months and it was all going quite well.... however, the guy who owned it then decided it wasnt making enough money and advised me to start playing the usual pish to get more people in, to which i refused and resigned!

some pleb was in the job within days and normal service was resumed. the universe realligned...

i moved to glasgow about 6 months later and the rest is history.

are you sure he didnt ask you to play tunes taking influence from the glasgow style bars? maybe this is why he was disappointed with the results.

Yeah, it happens in every new bar/club that opens up in this shitehole of a town. They have the idea of wanting to do something slightly different but balk at it after a few months and go for the familiar cheese and ned music that appeals to the vast majority of Greenock's population.

Probably makes sense to cater to your core market but as a DJ it sucks.

naw they just wanted to make as much money as possible! having initially vowed to do something different they then gave in to the capitalist monster. sadly in my experiance 90% of people in greenock WANT to hear 'hey baby' every weekend... and that other 10% isnt financially viable to cater for.

plus the guy who owned it was desperate to bum you and got a bit disappointed when it turned out that short fat bald coke heads weren't your thing

thats pretty good, as long as they work fine. if you can go and see them first then take someone along to check them....

in fact i see they are based in clarkston, which is just up the road from me. so if you want i will go with you.

Alright guys

After waiting a while, i managed to get myself a good deal on second hand mk2's.

Lighting Monkey - i had already bought the behringer bcd3000, as suggested by you. However, the guy who sold me the decks chucked in his mixer for free, and,I bought (for a very good price) 400+ vinyl off a dj who had decided to go digital...so thinking i might send that back now.

Loving it so far, thanks again for the help

vinyl is more fun though isnt it? plus it makes you feel like a big man!


I disagree, holding 12 inches of black plastic in your hands is nothing more than a pathetic phallic substitute.

Yes, that is what I was implying in the comment.

From Wikipedia 'sarcasm' entry:

Quote:
Sarcasm can be difficult to grasp in written form. To prevent this some people emphasize sarcastic comments on the Internet with an emoticon, such as ^o); or surround them with a made-up markup language tag, e.g. *sarcasm*, <sarcasm> or <snicker>.... Whilst this happens it is not universally the case. For example, Shakespeare regularly used sarcasm as a literary tool to emphasize a point or joke and rarely ever used quotation marks or italics.


Hahahahahah, that made me laugh a lot. What a breathtakingly stupid example. "Shakespeare regularly wrote speeches in which people were sad, but rarely ended them with Sad"

Pleeeeease let someone rewrite Shakespeare with emoticons for the Facebook age.

... WTF, frighted with teh false fire?!? Lols, FTW! Twisted Evil
