DJ Hut is REOPENING this Friday, Feb 1st

DJ Hut
2010 P St. NW 2nd Floor
Washington, DC 20036

i'm dropping by to show some DC love & support and to spend some money over there. it was sad to hear that the store burned down a few months ago and DC hasn't really had a good DJ vinyl spot in a minute since they closed. see u all there.

Will today be the day I replace my drivers side mirror?

We shall see, hahahaha. Damn I need to do this soon so I can get my car inspected before the end of the month, which is tomorrow. Wish me luck.

Back in the day when I used to have a corporate job

hahahaha, i was feeling nostalgic this week and decided to go thru some of my old pics that's saved in my file server. found these from when i used to work at CSC as a programming analyst a few years back. thank god i don't have to do my daily cubicle grind anymore. these pics are from 2000 to 2001, almost a decade ago and about 30-40 lbs heavier, hahaha.

i'm all dressed up for my whimpy ass cubicle

gangsta leanin' in my luxurious window side cubicle, hahaha

accepting an award of excellence for the intranet site my team and i developed

yet another pic of me stuck in a cubicle

I miss diggin' in the crates

this is a video for erykah badu's newest single "honey". the video just reminds me of the days when i used to go record shopping at dj hut, when local djs used to take me to their record spots at all the cities i used to visit during my battle days, when finding that record you were looking for was such a great feeling. i seriously miss looking at record covers, actually diggin' thru your crates at gigs, the dust and grime, the nasty way your record covers looked on top of your record crates/cases with all the wear and tear. back in the day...

Cloverfield & Lost connection

here is the season 4 promo poster for Lost. if you notice in the water, there's a reflection of what looks like the new york city skyline. things that make u go hmmmmm.

Cloverfield warning

Cloverfield warning.
Originally uploaded by quietpopcorn

hahahaha, this is so true. linh and i saw the movie this past sunday and she was telling me that she was getting dizzy and sick thru out the movie due to the way the movie was filmed. anyways, cloverfield was definitely a good movie and from what i've been hearing, there's probably room for a sequel. at the end of the credits, there was some sort of faint sound where it says "its still alive". also, i've been hearing that there's a connection between the tv series Lost and Cloverfield since its made by the same producer, JJ Abrams and Bad Robot productions. kinda does make sense since it seems like they released something when the hatch exploded. probably released the Cloverfield monster. anyways, can't wait for the season premiere of Lost which is Thursday Jan 31st, 10pm.

The Joker is dead

R.I.P. Heath Ledger (1979-2008). I never actually enjoyed his movies, but I must say, I am looking forward to his role as the Joker in the new Batman movie.

Broken tonearm at my saturday gig

The turntable at avenue, my saturday gig, had a broken tonearm when I got there. And when I mean broken, I mean broken off. Doesn't look like an accident at all. Looks like somebody broke it on purpose. Anyways, we replaced that one with another turntable from another dj booth in the club.

Numark & Serato partnership

all i gotta say its like WOAH. motorized midi controller for serato...comes with both tables, mixer, and interface all in one.....WOAH. this is gonna change the game up. are we seeing the final days of vinyl and CDs in the DJ booth?

Collaboration to Deliver New Class of DJ Hardware and Software Interactivity

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 17, 2008 ) – Numark, the world’s leading manufacturer of products for the DJ market, announces the formation of a strategic partnership with Serato, the world's leading provider of DJ software. The agreement marks the first joint effort between Serato and Numark, and promises new levels of performance for DJs.

Numark and Serato have combined forces in an effort to drive the integration of high-performance software and hardware into the DJ experience. With its time-tested legacy of innovation, Numark has leveraged its ability to match its highly recognized hardware expertise with Serato’s software prowess. Together, Numark and Serato have created a powerhouse DJ software and hardware combination.

The results of the Numark and Serato strategic partnership can be seen in person January 17-20 at Winter NAMM 2008 booth 6400 in Anaheim, CA. Of particular note, the new product—Numark’s NS7 motorized software controller—is completely unique to both companies. Officials of Numark and Serato were quick to point out that the NS7 is a first-of-its-kind DJ software controller. With extremely high resolution real vinyl control, the NS7 achieves the most accurate and precise software control available. An integrated high quality audio interface locks to the included Serato "Itch" DJ software to deliver the best possible sound.

Numark's new alliance with Serato will usher in a new era of DJ software and hardware from both companies.

What's up with all this talk about the new MacBook Air laptop?

sure its nice, thin, and fragile, but you have to spend $1700 for a laptop that doesn't even have more than 1 USB port, no ethernet connection, and no optical drive (CD/DVD drive). i know that toshiba and sony have laptops almost as thin as the new Macbook Air laptop and has the same features for less than $1000. seems to me people are getting ripped off for purchasing a $1700 ipod nano, hahahahaha. don't believe the hype people.

On our way back home from pittsburgh

Hanging out with brent in pittsburgh was fun. It was a non-stop drink fest from 6pm yesterday til 6am this morning. Went to diesel and sbar and met up with brent's coworkers (rose, dave and rusty) who also owns a clothing line called blast. Sbar had really dope underground old school hiphop courtesy of dj nugget and zimmie, who brent said are the best djs in pittsburgh. We hung out with zimmie afterwards with mark and brent and he took us out to a pittsburgh staple called primanti bros. Dope sandwich spot, but really unhealthy. My sandwich probably was 2000 calories with piled high pastrami, cheese, tomato, coleslaw and fries all inside the sandwich. Spent sleeping all day today, had a big late lunch at this pizza place around 4pm and watched tv until brent had to go to work which was at 8pm. Now back to virginia, holler

Mike Jones - Drop & Gimme 50

didn't realize how dope this song was until i saw the video. when he dropped that "mr. jones" track last year, i thought his career was pretty much done and since then, i totally refused to listen to other tracks he posted up on the blogs and digiwaxx. well i guess he's got one more banger to prove people wrong. this one's a booty banger.

Wiz Khalifa out of Pittsburgh looks like he’ll be the next rapper to blow up. Here’s his recently released track “Say Yeah” that samples the late 90’s summer trance hit “Better Off Alone” by Alice Deejay.
