    Re: Saturday Night DJ Action (White Ball)

    Ha...so I worked at a game store for most of the Pokemon height. I know how to play it. I also know how to turn parents off from buying it. I tell them "my pit bull, vs your pit bull." and they kinda just shy away.

    It was invented by a japanese guy who noticed all the ponds and stuff near where he lived were getting filled in or drying out, so no one would collect bugs, etc. He wanted to give kids something to do.

    And wow this is a strange thread.

    Or am I missing something?
    I'm with you on this one. I can't understand it, either. Maybe if I was that age, well, no, I wouldn't have been doing that at that age, either. <shrugs>

    The penthouse party is a private function and not an official part of Defcon.

    Well, before you go out tomorrow night, they cancelled the Portland/Seattle shows this week.

    I helped regenerator recover some of their gear on Sunday and they seemed pretty cool, in spite of all the goings on. I think I'm gonna go see them this Thursday when they play locally.

    I promise to still dress up twice.

    I should also say thanks to all those who put in the extra effort to wear something interesting, and to those who booted out the people in jeans and baseball caps.

    What wonderful freaks we are.

    ck3k i can assure you that regenerator will play again next year . I talked things over with them and seeing as they got a awful raw deal with the shutdown of the white ball I felt that they needed a second chance . so provided defcon isnt cancelled next year regenerator will play .
    Awesome, they always have an awesome set. I really hope to catch the full thing next year. I got a couple of their cds, so I am content for a little while ;) I just want them to know how we feel about them getting screwed, and I do suppose we owe them some beer.

    Jackalope, I caught the first part of your set and loved it. I'm a big fan of drumelectrobass. It's always good to have a DJ playing stuff that will actually get people up to dance, instead of sitting around the room. Sorry I never came up to you and said anything, but I was busy getting hammered.
    Yup. I love the electrostep. It gets kids dancing and they don't know why. I knew you Floridians were running around somewhere. If you were busy getting hammered, you were doing your first DC correctly.

    ya know... all of this of course is hindsight.... Regenerator should have been moved to one of the Renegade parties....cuz when I throw raves, when the police shut down a room, we just figure out another.

    Deviant, that reminds me. I never got your DVD to you. If you are still interested, I'll just post the files on my website and let you leach them. Conversely, I could send them snail mail to you, but that would take longer :)
