Modern Retro(spect): My 20 Years As An Artist – Part 1

old-school-vs-new-schoolLadies and gentlemen - I am pleased to announce that as of today, I am celebrating exactly 20 years in this business! That's correct. my delusions of grandeur began August 21, 1993. So, since I love of storytelling... I give you my Top 5 most memorable moments of the time I have spent as an artist, a DJ, producer, and showman (in no particular order).

Anime Weekend Atlanta 2012

Kamikaze Test Dummies (Ma’ku and myself) were green lighted by AWA 2012 to be one of several DJs to perform for their Saturday night party (aka, “The Rave That Is Not A Rave Because The Word ‘Rave’ Implies There Is Drugs And Alcohol Involved”, so says AWA management).  Ma’ku has been to several of these Japanese animation conventions, and he is well versed in the Anime subculture. I, on the other hand, took this gig as a whole new experience. All in all, we had a blast. 

Below are some fan videos I found on YouTube after the convention. Both videos offer a true feel of the crowd, the costumes, and what happened over the course of the weekend.

At 3:14 of the above video, you can get a quick peek of the 3500+ people dancing and going nuts Saturday night while we were on stage.

Check out the roller coaster rat maze style line that waited in the lobby while we set up for the Saturday night party (at 2:30).

Much thanks to DJ Auptimus, Jinnai, Innubito, Pixel8, and Bishop for taking us in and letting us share the stage with you.

Amore Arte Amore

Quick video recap of the fun that was had at the gallery1526 exhibit opening event for Encyclomedia Atlanta on 10-22-10. The gallery curator specifically requested if I could come play an all-vinyl late 90s / early 2000s Breakbeat set. I was happy to oblige. Check it out.

Bubblicious 2.0: Perspective from Behind The Decks

murphyMurphy's Law happens to everybody and believe me, I'm no exception. There is no such thing as a concert, event, or massive party that goes on without a glitch. Whatever can go wrong, usually will. The success of that event depends on how quick you can recover from what goes wrong. This seemed to be the general theme for this night in particular.

Dragon*Con 2009: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

hot-burning-speakerI'm awake now. It took me a few days to recover from the festivities last weekend.  It's amazing what a handful of Advil and 14 hours of sleep can do. I needed it though. I didn't get back to my hotel room until at least 3AM to 7AM from Friday through Sunday night. I got plenty of good networking done. Some know the holiday as Labor Day Weekend. Nerds like myself count down all year to the same date so we can return to our mecca in the South East known as Dragon*Con. Leading up to this year's freak fiesta, I had been negotiating with Dragon*Con management since last April. I received a call from Mr. Eric Watts, Trek Track Director for Dragon*Con, during my lunch break at work. I was pleased to hear him tell me that since last year's Trek party I DJed was a big hit. (Yeah, I already knew that. I was there. But every now and again, it's nice to get that kind of validation.) Eric went on to ask if I wanted to DJ again for the Klingon Disco and the Party at Ten Forward. This year would be nothing out of the ordinary - sponsorship by Outworlders and will double as Dragon*Con's Rainbow Flag Party for the geek LGBT community (translation: my mix needs to be a bit girlier than usual with more 80s / 90s flavor). Naturally, I accepted the invitation without a second thought. I love convention crowds, and have had a good amount of experience spinning at gay clubs.
