zz_In da club
Oh boy. I’ve never really been the clubbing type. The music is too loud, the floor is cramped, and I find the crowd to be mildly obnoxious. Suffice to say clubs are generally not my venue of choice.
It’s the weirdest thing, though, because I do like the crazy lights and powerful bass. Maybe it has something to do with being unhealthily mesmerized by oscillating screensavers since the age of 8, but that’s a story for a different day.
My solution? The “in da club” kit. Crazy colored lights, controlled by me, in the comfort of my own home. No crowds, and I’m the DJ. Awesome. I’m on the prowl for a mist/smoke machine and some blacklights to go with this too, so give me a shout if you find a good one.
P.S. I don’t know if 50 Cent has a trademark on the phrase “In da club”, but if he does, he really shouldn’t. I mean, I can slur my speech and pronounce “the” improperly too. I’ll bet he wasn’t the first to do it.
