I’m Not About The Money

Ever since the mid 80’s, I have been what’s known as a bedroom DJ. I have to say, that I do what I do, only because I love and enjoy mixing House music till the end, not because I lack the experience or because I have been a novice all this years. I remember back in the days, when my friends and I, used to throw house parties just for the hell of it. But I specifically remember the day, that a friend of mine and fellow DJ decided to sell his tapes and mine in the streets. A club owner had bought one of my tapes and offered me a job at his club in downtown New York City. To make the a long story short, I didn’t take it.

You see, I’m not like some people out there, who have the need for attention. Unlike others, I’m not about money and fame. I love mixing House music in the privacy of my home, because it is a hobby that I have loved and enjoyed for many, many years, plus mentally, it takes me to a place where I can just chill the fuck out, without drinking alcohol or getting high. Who knows, maybe if I had taken the job at the club back then, I could have been rich and famous. But you have to understand, that I’m not about the money. I’m about doing things for me, not to please others. I’m about enjoying what I like and not being famous, recognized, rewarded, awarded or criticized for it. I guess that what I am trying to say is, that for me, mixing music is not about making money and or being famous. It’s just about doing something that I have loved and enjoyed for so many years. Plus I like my alone time.

With that said! I am Audi 5000 y’all!

Big Wigs Are Out Of Touch

Ever since I dropped out of high school at the age of about sixteen years old and started working in factories, I learned a lot about how the big wigs think and work in corporations. The one thing that I came to realize is, that they are out of touch with their employees and customers. What do I mean? Well, for one, most big wigs have never ever in their entire life, done hard manual labor like the rest of us. If they would have, then they would appreciate their employees more. On another hand, they tend to worry more about what it is good for the company, than what their customers actually need, want and would pay for. In other words, the big wigs, really need to get their heads out of their assholes and connect with reality.

As an employee, I can say that many, many, many times, I was underappreciated. I’m not saying that I should have received the employee of the month award for just doing my job. But I can tell you, that when I was given more work and responsibilities, my paycheck stayed the same. Even after I was promised a pay raise for taking on more responsibilities, nothing changed. As a customer, I look at how so many companies are more about profits than providing good products and services. You have to understand, that I don’t get a weekly paycheck just for sitting down on my ass doing nothing, I earn my money the honest way. So for me to pay for something that sucks, it doesn’t make sense at all. Meanwhile the top executives are making a lot of money, their employees  and customers are suffering. To be honest, top executives need to get out there and get to know their employees and their customers, before making stupid decisions.
