    Thought I'd come back and say Hey!

    Thought I'd come back and say Hey! It's been an interesting summer and now that Fall is upon us, I've got nothing set up for next year. I made some friends this year and gained a little notoriety, but I'm a afraid that I slit my throat with the Chamber of Commerce. The COC runs just about...

    New DJ Controller

    I will be getting my first new DJ music controller since 2002. I have to admit, I have no clue on what this thing does. I'm not out blowing a ton of money on some top of the line thing, it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, it's pretty simple and straight forward from what I can see...
