Today I was listening to my favorite new podcast, Untitled Rothfuss, when I thought of this blog entry. The podcast is basically just Patrick Rothfuss (fantasy author of The Name of the Wind) and Max Temkin (Cards Against Humanity) telling stories about their lives.
Near the beginning of this week’s episode, Rothfuss revealed that he had decided on a DJ name. Not that he’s becoming a DJ or anything. It’s just kind of whimsical thing, like using the street you grew up on to pick your porn star name. Nobody does that and then immediately becomes a porn star. This is just for fun.
I preface it in that way because of the name Rothfuss chose. This is a man who creates beautiful words for a living. He selected: DJ F**k Beets. (Yes, “beets” as in the vegetable.)
When I heard this, I was reminded of my favorite DJ name of all time. It’s from the movie “The Goods.” The name is DJ Request, which is okay by itself, but it’s his mantra of “Nobody tells DJ Request what to play” that takes it to a new level.”
So with Rothfuss claiming his DJ name, I figured it was time for me to claim my own (even though I haven’t been to a club in years and have no intention of every returning to one). After much deliberation, I’m going with DJ Party All Night (availability: 6:00-9:00 pm, Fridays and Saturdays).
What’s your DJ name (and slogan, if necessary).
