    First wedding in 20+ years...

    Forgot to mention.... Did you say FORGOT to mention? Do I detect just a smidgeon of forgetfulness setting in? Of course, that could not possibly be attributable to certain people becoming somewhat long-in-the-tooth could it? Personally, I intend to remain 39 (plus S&H) for some time to come...

    First wedding in 20+ years...

    And???? C'mon Lou, don't keep us in the dark... How did it go? Enquiring minds need to know.

    What’s Happened To This Forum?

    For many years I would pop by this forum at least once, and often two or three times every day. Now, it's once a month.... if that. I can't really put my finger on why I chose to stay away, but I can give you a few contributions... (a) It seemed to me that the board's demise started at about...

    Okay, okay. I'll admit it.

    Howdy Lou. Nice to see you. Are you still in upstate New York? (at least, I seem to recall you moved there from Joisey.) I still have a ton of Promo Only, Morganstern and several lesser known subscription discs gathering dust in my down-stairs store room... I'll probably donate them to the...

    Member Since 2002

    Mine says member since 2004, but it actually goes back further than that... 1996, I think. Back when the site was just starting out with the two co-founders (Ryan & Glenn). Seems to me I purchased a new computer in '04 and couldn't figure out how to continue posts under my own name for whatever...

    Only Retired DJs Are "Real" DJs

    When I left the very real hustle and bustle of the DJ business over ten years ago to concentrate on karaoke, I found my mental fatigue all but disappeared. As a karaoke host, I get to see many of the same faces every week, and as a result, I've been able to remember pretty-much all of our...

    What Has Happened To This Site?

    Another reason not to come back... Buh bye... (and NO, I won't let the door hit my arse on the way out...)

    What Has Happened To This Site?

    I'm also one of those who were "Regulars" for many years beginning somewhere around 1996 (when Ryan and Glenn Miller were still partners)... My dis-interest began with the name change... the site will always be "PRO DJ" to me... and was exacerbated when karaoke was dropped. So, instead of...

    Big E Passed Away...

    Just come back to ProDJ after a very long absence, and the first post I see is this horrible news... To quote one of my favorite songs - Go Rest Easy On That Mountain Eldon.

    Just Got The Diagnosis

    Apparently I've been afflicted with (but not suffering from) lalochezia. I'm told I've had the condition for over sixty years, and didn't even realize it.

    It's Scammer Day In Atlanta.

    I am never impolite with these calls. After all, in many cases these are relatively young people working in a call center for minimum wages. They don't need abuse, but they get it all the time. Please remember, these are fellow human beings on the other end of that phone line. On the other...

    George Jones... R.I.P.

    Country mega-star George Jones passed away this morning at the age of 81. Arguably the finest, purest country singing voice that ever was, has been silenced. R.I.P. "Possum", and thanks for the music.

    The Oscars......

    Just watched "Searching For Sugar Man". One of the best music-related documentaries I've ever experienced. Highly recommended. Question for Mark & other Detroit-area DJs... Had you ever heard of Sixto Rodriguez before now? I hadn't. How can a man/musician/poet be bigger than Elvis in a foreign...

    AMS Customer Service

    I purchased my SRM450s from Bill @ ESC nine years or so ago, and have never had a problem with them... They do 120+ mostly Karaoke events per year without them even breathing hard.... and that's without subs. As far as I'm concerned, Bill could branch out as a consultant to the industry on...

    Official DJ New Year Resolution Thread:

    Does that include the urn Sarge?

    What Songs Make You Cry...or develop untypical humidity in the vicinity of your eyes?

    I'm not too proud to admit there are a number of songs in this category... At the top of the list, for very personal reasons, is "Daisy A Day" by Judd Strunk. A very close second would be Josh Groban's "To Where You Are".

    Wait...what? we're still HERE???

    I was so sure the Mayans were correct, that I even let my dog pee on the living room carpet.

    Howdy Y'all from Texas!

    Mr. Gryphon (you old dust-monkey, you) So.... I was driving through Regina this past summer on my way to Calgary, when I spotted some old "Wanted" posters of you in the main post office and on various telephone poles... They're at least 20 years old and getting a little faded, so you might want...

    When is it time to...

    When I knew I was "losing my edge" as a DJ - both from the physical demands, and from age catching up... I turned to Karaoke. Mind you, I can, and often do still do the set-up and strike, but I normally have lots of help. (Karaoke "regulars" love to assist.) My point is... perhaps you could...
