Recorded live at dogglounge.com on Sunday, 11 Sept 2016. (Tracklist shown there.)

September 11 is a difficult day for me. It is the anniversary day of my wife’s and my wedding, so it ought to be super-happy.

But it’s also is the anniversary of the tragedy that happened in NYC, when planes hit the World Trade Center, killing over 3,000 people. This evil gets remembered by society at large on this day, so it’s difficult for my wife and to feel like it is a wonderful anniversary day. (For many years, we left the USA during this date just to escape the press remembrances.)

So this day’s set

Book rating rules

I read quite a lot. And I provide reviews on most of them. Most are posted at my Goodreads profile page (and Goodreads then cross-posts them to Amazon). You can see my latest reads in the block on the side of this page.

(I'm a bit ashamed my reviews aren't more extensive; I'm not a good keeper-of-notes while I read, and I'm usually on to the next one by the time I get to writing a review for a prior one, so I don't always have the full recollection of what's in the past-read book.)

I do try to use the star same rating system on each one.

I had guests coming over for a backyard BBQ dinner after the set. It was hot out, and we'd be eating hot BBQ ribs. So, "grilled". Note: This set is about 10 minutes short of my normal 2 hours; I had to quit early to pick up all my DJ wiring before guests arrived. Thanks to all those in chat. It's always nice to have people supporting the DJ's ego. ;-)

Tracklist:

  • Love Hangover (2016 Remix), Joey Negro
  • Seeing You (Richard Earnshaw Remix), Eli Escobar, Richard Earnshaw
  • Day Dreaming (Original Mix), Tebogo J, Komplexity
  • Still In Love (DJ Spen

Recorded live at Dogglounge on 31 July 2016.

For this set I was using full-on pro gear: Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus and DJM-900nexus. Stuff the big boys play at every club. Sadly, this is about $5k of gear, and I don't own it, so I don't play on it as frequently as I need to to keep my skills sharp. Since I've got some dates coming up where I need to be on that gear, so I borrowed some to freshen up.

Tracklist at either Dogglounge or Mixcloud.

I'm not sure why I named this podcast this way. I did the mastering and artwork (which made me come up with a name), then forgot to upload the podcast. In the meantime, I've forgotten. I had just come back from Ibiza; though that doesn't make me remember anything (probably was instrumental in why I forgot...).

Tracklist at the Dogglounge or Mixcloud.
