I'm celebrating Thanksgiving at my boyfriend's this year and was asked to play DJ for this dinner event which will consist of a 10-course meal prepared by him and his two buddies. The three of them are 20 year restaurant veterans.
I'm very excited.
My other job is preparing an Amaretto Charlotte or Charlotte Amaretto or something along those lines that I've never had in my life, i don't think. I will probably fuck this up so I'd like to make sure that I can at least deliver on the dinner music.
So I've been asked to make two mixes: One for the pre-dinner and the other for the actual dinner. I'm thinking string renditions of Radiohead songs and some jazz (my bf likes jazz a lot and so he's made his suggestions). I'm thinking my favorite mellow songs of my favorite albums, and hoping that those aren't totally slit-your-wrist depressing.
My friend Xiomara sent me this nice mashup which pissed off the newly resurrected KarenPlusOne. She said that mashups should be for mosh pits (or mash pits?) and not elevators. I disagree. I am quite happy to have this to play on Thursday night:
Lionel Richie's "Easy Like Sunday Morning" x The Cure's "Lovesong"
Lastly, when Brandon left me I went kinda super utterly sad for a few weeks or a month and then went to see a "spiritual adviser" or "psychic" ... anyone interested in hearing about it? Should i blog about it or is that kinda too personal?
