Rod Rocks!

Rod DJs with me

Last night, after recovering enough music to put together a set, I did my 2-4am DJ gig at Breaking The Rules. It was an interesting set, to say the least. It seems my SAM didn’t like a lot of the music I had chosen and kicked out about half of my playlist. So I was DJing on the fly! He also didn’t want me to speak, apparently – he rejected my voice over music for my first two planned mic breaks. I finally got him to accept “I’ve Got A Lovely Bunch Of Coconuts” for my voice over, only to forget I had shoved my microphone on top of my headset so nobody could hear me. Sighs…one of those “If it could go wrong” kind of nights!

But then, I realised I had a secret weapon – something to watch over me and keep the remainder of my set running smoothly. Would anything in Second Life dare to misbehave if I dragged out my good friend and one-time date, Flat Rod?

Hell no! The rest of my set ran smoothly, although I’m not sure what happened to my host, Hope’s hair when he appeared o.O I guess maybe Rod only protects the one he’s closest to!

I did have one moment, though, when I was a bit suspect of Rod’s motives…

Was he keeping an eye on the DJ board to see what was being played, or was he checking out our bums?

For once, Rod was mute. Probably for the best – the way his eyes were popping out of his head, I suspect the latter 😉

When A Pixie Meets A Chipmunk

Yes, today I’ve got something just a little different! On Saturday, my good friend, Hope Seranade, followed me DJing at Breaking The Rules. From the moment she started speaking, we knew something was very, very wrong, yet very, very hysterical 😀 Somehow, some pixies – or chipmunks – had found their way into her SAM, and she sounded like…well, click play on the video to hear it yourself! By her third voice-over, I was in tears of laughter, but somehow managed to remember to grab my phone and record this momentous occasion. If you listen closely, you can hear me giggling at the end of the recording. Thankfully, I managed to press stop before I snorted! You can view on youtube here.

When I told Hope I had recorded it, she was appalled, but it seems that word of my treachery spread, and I was asked to share it on Facebook. So, this morning, I set out to create a video. After almost three hours of trial and error, I managed to capture the slides AND the audio, convert it to an .avi file and upload it. It was a LOT of work, but just listening to it – and knowing that anyone who stumbles across it can view it – made it all worth it.

Here’s to you, Hope…my homage to you in all of your pixified-glory. Alvin ain’t got nuthin on you 😉

Wrangling Butterflies

1 DJd_007

I didn’t blog yesterday because I was getting ready for a big night – I was prepping to complete one of the items on my Bucket List: I DJ’d in Second Life. I did my audition at Breaking The Rules, the club where I have hosted since it opened. My set ran from 2am – 4am SLT, so I was thrilled to have around 20 people stay awake for my set! I still don’t know if my audition was successful and I’ll earn my DJ tags, but I had a blast, once I managed to wrangle the butterflies and figure out how not to trip over my tongue 😉

I have to say that this photo shows exactly how I felt today – exhausted! I was so pumped after my set finished that I had a hard time sleeping. But I feel very proud that I overcame my fear and actually did it. I also want to thank all of my friends who came out to see me – for most of them it was very, very late, and they stayed awake to support me 🙂 I also want to give special thanks to Kaos, who wouldn’t let me “think about it” and gently pushed me into actually doing it. Hugs and ty, Bubby!

Update: I was working on this post as I was heading into the club to host my normal midnight set. The DJ overslept, so I got to take off my training wheels…I’m officially a DJ! Woot!
