Happy New Year! - Freestailo #17 - 1/1/12


HAPPY NEW YEAR FREESTAILERS!

Click on this picture. It moves.
This is the beginning of a long night for me, and I had a lot of fun spending the beginning of the New Year with you. Like I said over and over again on the show: I can't think of a better way to spend my year than doing the radio thing, and playing music for all of you. They say that what you do on New Year's is what you'll do the rest of the year, and I hope that's true, because that means that I'll be spending a lot more time with you via the airwaves.

Another great way to spend New Year's is with friends, and I'm lucky enough that one of my roommates and one of my good friends came to the station with me to help me pick out music and stay with me a bit. I also was welcomed by three other DJs in the studio when I arrived to the station after my friend's New Year's party. Thus the Beatles song I played first. 

Another thing: I dressed up for y'all. Do you realize that? I was decked OUT, kids. Dress, heels, make-up...the works. Came straight from a New Year's party to DJ for you. Because I love you.

At The Party:
  1. Regina Spektor: It's always a pleasure playing Regina Spektor, but I try to restrain myself so that I don't overplay her. 'Bobbing for Apples' is the perfect New Year's song, in my opinion. I don't know why. 
  2. Interludes: I like that I used smaller interludes at various times. Wow, that's kind of vague. Specifically, I like the "Moon's Destruction," "Evolution," and Bioshock interludes that I used. I think it added a bit of momentum to the show, and kept me entertained. 
  3. Marathon Time: This is part one of my New Year's Marathon, and I think it's pretty good for a long night, right? 
Not At The Party: 
  1. Skins Mess: Wow, so I really didn't mean to play the beginning of the episode of Skins. I meant to find the perfect scene right in the middle to play for you to make a beautiful layering experience. For some reason though, it didn't register with me that when I started to play Skins, Irony of Fate would stop playing. Derp de derp. 
  2. Transitions: Just a bit off I think. Nothing horrible, but not perfect. 
  3. Just a bit off...: I can't explain it, but I feel like I just wasn't TOTALLY on my game. I made little flub ups that aren't really worth listing here. 
Stay tuned for part two of my New Year's Marathon Extravaganza AKA Heidi DJs for 6-straight-hours yaaaaay!
