Last night I popped into SL to pay on rentals and to ask for a little technical SL advice from my good friend, Bookstacks co-owner Kghia G. Since the Friday night dance was underway on Awen, I stuck around for the music.
DJ Walt was there spinning virtual tunes, his selections always fun. It amazes me how often I find myself liking most if not all of what he plays. I say amazed, because I'm not really into the music scene these days, but I love hearing 'new to me' songs that make me tap my foot or want to dance, and Walt seems to play a lot of music that soon become my iPod favorites.
Last night, DJ Walt played some great dance stuff, plus a bunch of mashups I'd never heard before. Being traditionally rooted in classic rock, you'd think I wouldn't like song mixing mashups, but for once, I enjoyed them and I think it's because of the song mixes he played. Mashups like: Brat - I Am The Mashup (The Beatles vs. The Beatles), Brat - So What'cha Want? A Whole Lotta Love! (Led Zeppelin vs Beastie Boys), and Loo & Placido - Skrillex Rock (Skrillex vs. Daft Punk vs. Queen vs. House Of Pain).
Since I've been fleshing out an idea for another story, I threw on my Blondie tube top and white leggin' pants and went totally retro except for my virtual hair, which I left as is. Back in the day, I would have worked the big hair, and I am embarrassed to say I probably used more AquaNet than the bands Cinderella and Poison combined. lol.
