Out-of-Work DJ Finds Nirvana

OK, I'm am unabashed music snob, but this comes close to perfection (close only cos' the DJs get in the way of the music - i know, i know, for those in the know, ironic, eh?)...

* Instant Ear Candy (albeit in mono - for the aurally atas, click here and figure it out yourself!)
** With hearty kowtows to Cleversponge's impeccable ear.

Really, my word should be good enough, but this sample playlist should convince any self-respecting muso:

On a different frequency, last night I dreamt I went to a Hollywood movie premiere, dressed like a rock star, walking down the red carpet, bulbs flashing, arm-in-arm with Lindsay Lohan (on the left) and Kate Moss (who mysteriously turned into Paris Hilton just as we entered the movie theatre). Both proceeded to behave very badly i.e. run up and down aisles, tossing popcorn and releasing giggles/ squeals, while I tried to apologise to other cinema patrons.

What does it all mean? I'm hideously embarrassed.
