Well I thought my signed Tool poster was a pretty good entry, considering it was the best out of the 100 in existence of that particular one.

I suppose shifty's Nazi Crockery could probably get a mention. Not sure if it's 'cool' though.

I am just too poor to get into mixing. Sure, I may be able to afford some basic equipment, but I could never keep up with the cost of vinyl. I dislike using CDs to mix based on my few experiences with a friend's set-up.

i know what you mean... though i am selling my gaming pc to finance that mixer (it's pretty much the same price as as a mid-high end gaming pc).

vinyl though is a serious vice... i love it to death, but if you're dj'ing on vinyl - i.e. buying dance singles and ep's, rather than albums - then you're paying $12-15 a pop for 2-5 songs. some dance ep's only have an a-side. that's a brutal price:use ratio, especially considering most bedroom dj's will never get the opportunity to take those vinyl out and actually play them. it's just a pure love/hobbyist thing, i guess.

and yeah i totally agree with cd-j mixing. in my view, either you're going the analogue route or you're going digital. if analogue, then yes, get a purist analogue-signal mixer (see above) and play vinyl. enjoy warm lovely analogue tones. if you're going the digital route, why bother getting expensive cd-j's, and have to endure the tedious process of burning all of the mp3's you download to cd? digital is digital. may as well get an mp3 controller that can just play your downloaded loot directly. a flac/wav/320 mp3 ripped to a cd is not going to sound any better than the file just played straight off a hard-drive. that's why i mostly use this workhorse, outputting 24-bit 96k audio, which is as good as any digital source is going to get really.

but yeah, i'm onto the analogue-purist phase now. people go on and on about the sound, but the audio quality/signature of vinyl really is gorgeous. pair that with a top-end analogue mixer and even just the prospect of it makes me want to cream myself. going to be surfing on sine waves.

I hear ya. You pretty much feel the way I do in terms of the analogue-digital divide, and the overall favoring of vinyl, but I can see the value in using CDs to mix in only one narrow case: when you want to scribble and are unable to afford vinyl. I'm slowly coming to realize it may be my only entry point into what will be a hobby for me, and maybe once I'm hooked I'll have enough cash to buy some decent equipment and vinyl.

Congrats on the new purchase. Do you get into any small clubs in London, or is it mostly for your ears only and whoever is in the room?

i enjoy house parties and DIY put-on parties more - more control, you know the crowd, everyone's more disposed to have a good time.

though i've dj'd at student bars/clubs a few times, and generally gravitate in circles in the london clubscene that are behind the decks/organising the nights as often as on the dancefloor. to be honest i'm more into writing/criticism and the general 'scene' than i am dj'ing; i don't practice or do it enough. it's just a pleasurable thing to spend money on. i've never really looked at it as something to push and try to earn money / get bookings from. i enjoy the music and i enjoy playing it to likeminded friends/crowds. playing out at clubs turns it into a profession where you've got to go out of your way to please people you don't know. it's more difficult + less enjoyable to me.

nah, it just means you're not obsessive The coolest thing I own is probably my wedding band, the rest is just stuff that will get replaced over time.

Only thing I can think of is my license. Something other people genuinely think is cool.

I forgot about all my war memrobelia.

I've got a bunch of medals from WWI, postcards from WWI France, a couple of steel helmets from the 40s-70s era, my grandfather's WWII navy knife, a medkit from 'nam, and some other misc stuff.

It is really dusty since I don't have it on display and keep it the same place I keep my sexuality. The trigger works. It is just a display item. It is too heavy and unbalanced to use as a weapon unfortunately.
