Jam Session: Recap

On Thursday, March 25th Spoke~N~Heard & WCCR had their first Jam Session of the year. The intimate atmosphere was great for people to come out of their shells and express themselves artistically. After the night I learn many new things about my friends: Nicole & Osasu can sing? Lakeisha steps? My boy Cyrus can spit bars?


Check out all the performances below.








As you see it was a great event. After attending my first Jam Session, you can definitely RSVP me for the other two.

Stop Typing Like a Douche



This has been done time and time again, but I feel the need to rant about it. Maybe in hopes that if you hear it, read it and see it over and over again it'll seep in. I will admit that I'm somewhat harsh, but it's all very simple and hard to believe that people don't have the ability to type properly, all by stupid choice. I don't care if you agree or not but this irritates me and this is my blog, so you're going to have to deal.

Why, why oh why people of the internet? Why must you type like you have no type of formal education? I get the whole internet abbreviations and internet lingo (lol, brb, bbl, etc.) That is not what I'm referring to. I'm referring to the people who cut down words and replace letters with numbers or punctuation. I'm referring to the people who add unnecessary letters in words. (I'm not talking about at the end like thissssss) I'm talking about this: ii'm so tiired)

     Sadly, I've seen it, and not just by the young and naive, but from people who should know better. It doesn't make you seem adorable, you just look like you're making the same stupid typo over and over.

     Also, leaving a letter out of a word is just lazy. That is not abbreviating and it is not cute. There is absolutely no reason for you to leave out letters in words. Abbreviating phrases is acceptable. The word "the" is a THREE letter word. Why do people cut it down to "da" and "tha"? Try saying a sentence using "da" instead of properly pronouncing the word. You'll sound stupid. And "tha"? Really? You can type "thA" but not "thE"? What malfunction occurred? The same goes for the words: what (wut, wat) and when (wen).


Others and their retarded variations:
Girl- Grl (What is wrong with using ONE more letter?), Gurl (Really? What do you have against the letter i?), Giirl (Just one i is needed, thanks), Girlz/Grlz/Gurlz (Just no)

Boy- Boi (What's wrong with the letter y?) Boyz/Boiz (Again, just no)

Like- Lyke (Again with the i), Lyk (Need I say more?)

If you use these or omit unecessary letters, someone should hit you, hard.

     How do you function is school? Do you honestly do assignments typing like that? Oh yeah, blah blah the internet isn't school. I know, but sadly it's been done where people have dumbed down their typing online that it's reflected in their actual work. In school I've done peer reviews and I've seen papers with "u" and "y" and dare I say it: "lol" REALLY? u and y are not words, nor is the acronym lol, an acceptable word.


Basic Grammar
Now, see if you can pay attention.

There: Mostly used for destination. Opposite of here.
ex. I'm going over there. I like that dress over there. Etcetera.

They're: Short for they are.
ex. They're going to be excited. They're going to love this gift. Etcetera.

Their: A form of possession.
ex. That is their dog. This is their home. Etcetera.

You're: Short for you are.
ex. You're 20 minutes late. You're going to get in trouble.

Your: A possessive form of you.
ex. Is that your jacket? I'm shopping for your birthday gift.

It's: Short for it is or it has.
ex. It's hot in here. It's 3 in the morning. It's been 2 hours since we left. Etcetera.

Its: The possessive form of it.
ex. The dog is chasing its tail. The book has lots its cover. Etcetera.

Pretty simple, right? Well apparently online, they're all the same. So many people misuse those words and it's extremely irritating to me. It's really amusing and sad at the same time when I see celebrities twittering and misusing those words. Then again, they're people too right? Sadly.



*In the english language capital letters, when used properly go within titles, at the beginning of a sentence and names and are used for acronyms.

Your Sentence Should Not Look Like This.

THIS IS KIND OF ANNOYING TOO, BECAUSE THERE'S NO NEED FOR AN ENTIRE SENTENCE OR MULTIPLE SENTENCES TO BE IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

Unless, you know, you want to showcase your extreme anger online.


An acronym, for the people who don't know, is a word formed from the initial letters of a set phrase or series of words.

Ex:
ASPCA- The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
PETA- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
USA- United States of America

Then there are the ones commonly used online, which are acceptable:
BRB
TTYL
LOL
BTW
Etcetera. I know I don't have to elaborate on those.

WoUlD yOu WaNt To rEAD aN eNtiRe pAsSaGe oF wRiTiNg TyPeD oUt LiKe ThIs?
Pr3Tty Pr1nCeS$
B@biI33 GuRrL
$3Xy kItTy
Oh mAi gAwd!!!1!!1!

     I rest my case. That hurt my fingers just typing the above examples. It's also sort of a mind fuck for my eyes. My point is, it isn't hard to type like you're not stupid. One extra key to hit to complete a short word won't kill you. A lot more people will respect you if you type properly. Who enjoys looking like a jackass? Save yourself the trouble and headaches. =]

Q+A w/ Darius

Name: Darius Hoyte
Age: 20
Birthday: 7 August
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
Type of DJ: Laptop/Mouse DJ



What got you into DJing?

Well, when I first came to WCCR - City College Radio, I was instantly surrounded by Laptop DJs and Turntable DJs, that knew how to rock a crowd out. Coming from high school, I was pretty much a lame, that was hardly invited to anything. So, I thought,"I can get good at this...then..the same people would have to pay me to do their parties! Plus, this is fun!" So, I asked for the Traktor program from one of my friends, and got it.


How long have you been a DJ?

For 1-2 years now, and still going.


What was your first experience as a DJ like?

Well, A friend who had a laptop would practice DJing all the time. I kind of knew how he ran it, and I wanted to learn. So, one day, he had left his laptop inside of the production studio at the radio station, and I jumped on. When I realized that I could sync, and sync good - not well, good - I wanted the program for myself. When I got the program, instead of being told, "Hey, here's how you do it", I was told, "Have fun,and learn it yourself." So mostly, all of what I have done, I've learned to do by myself, with the exception of Tear-Drop, one of the Pro DJs at WCCR.


Why did you start DJing Anime music, and what got you into it?

Well, I wanted to start DJing clean music. I didn't want to DJ just the rap/hip-hop, dancehall, etc. anymore. The main reason is because I received a revelation kind-of, and I wanted to change myself for the better...(church does wonders)..so, I decided I'm gonna try DJing Anime. I first had 250 songs to work with, and that's how I started.

What got me into Anime Music? Nappy Did. Alex, one of my dear friends, one day, introduced me to Genesis of Next. We were sitting in the on-air studio, and he played something from some anime, and I was like, "Whoa...they actualy have the anime these songs as whole songs?" When he showed me that they did, we played Anime music on air for 2 hours that day, and 4 hours the next. And I had FUN. It was new, fast, happy, and everything else you could think of. I'm glad for that day; I would not be where I am if it wasn't for that day happeneing.

Who are your DJ idols?

All of the Pro DJs at WCCR. These guys know what to play, how to play it, and can make a crowd go nuts. Especially Scoop, Tear-Drop, DJ M.E., and DJ Sassy Baby.

However, my Anime DJ idol is DJ Jinnai. I was looking for the longest 2 years ago who was DJing Anime right now. There are a lot now, but not as much back then. I saw Jinnai on Youtube, and he seemed like a cool dude. However, he said he just DJed anime conventions ONLY. I didn't want that, so I set it out to become better than him.

I actually am in conversation from DJ Jinnai. I'm not trying to be better than him anymore, because he is teaching me well. I ask him questions, he answers me back..he enjoys my mixes,..It's someone I am very, very glad that I found and talked to on Youtube.


What has been the best encouragement you got DJing?

Jinnai told me that my approach of using mostly original songs has inspired him to use more originals as well, and he thanked me for my mixes. When I read the PM he sent me, I feel too good inside...for me to have an effect on him, it is mindblowing. I would have never dreamed to be told this so early.

So, what do You DJ Now?

I DJ Anime (contains a various amount of genres, including Electronica, J-Pop, J-Rock, DnB, Eurobeat, internet meems, etc.), Rap/Hip-Hop, Reggae-Dancehall, and R&B.


What is your goal in DJing?

DJing at an Anime Convention (preferably NYAF/NYCC 2010.)

Best DJ Moments?

The random practice..>_>.."sessions".
.at WCCR.
