That's right, I've received an honor (I'm more proud of this than speaking at graduation for some reason) to DJ the high school dance tonight. Students can expect lots of Daft Punk, lots of random funky boogies from James Brown and Jamiroquai, Michael Franti, Outcast, and lots and lots of secret favorites from my extensive hippie arsenal.
They will probably hate it because they wanna listen to the dam fangled rap music all about getting your booty low and grinding all up on your junk in the trunk and keepin it real, gettin it poppin, icing that blang, crackulating, off the chains and hooks, and doin that thang, and sippin on some scissors, and whats up in the low down, or down low, no doubt, gettin krunk and keepin it twizzled and fizzled triple double nizzled while the bacon sizzled and the weather drizzled. Y' knaw whad-I mean, ya huuuuuurd me? Tru Dat. Flaaaaaavor Flaaaaave.
Oh yeah, I speak their language, I'm cizzool. I'm two legit to quit.
The problem is that I really am just so much cooler than they are. There musical taste has improved so much over the last two years though, they have been good pupils. When I first met them they were listening to Avenge Sevenfold and Creed and Young Jeezy and Linkin Park and all sorts of heinous auditory garbage. After two years of intense music remediation and intervention they now enjoy a wide range of genre's music and artists. Jack Johnson, Bob Marley, Matt Costa, Tegan and Sara, Bassnectar, Daft Punk, Yonder Mountain String, Umphrey's McGee, Sigur Ros, Air, Ray LaMontagne, Les Claypool, John Butler Trio, Xavier Rudd, ALO, the list goes on. It is further evidence that almost anyone can make the transition from mindless top 40 idiot to something more.
If I sound like an asshole right now its because I am, on this topic, an elitist asshole, I listen to good music, if you don't agree, then you don't know anything.
I have a feeling that people won't come and also won't dance, hopefully not, and hopefully no ghetto drama goes down, and hopefully people don't spike the punch.
