DJ Expo 2012 - Atlantic City
DJ Expo 2012 - Atlantic City

My Sweet Paulita and I have been roadtrippin together since we first met. Fa real. Our first date back in '98, we rented a car and took off for Memphis together. Summer of '99 was the "Trippin' Hippie Tour" and we drove a white convertible up to Cleveland for the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame museum. They were doing sick tributes to Parliament and Ramones that summer. Then we headed south and didn't stop til we got to Nawlins. Got hammered on Bourbon Street, few days later and we are in Austin Texas. Drove all the way west through New Mexico, Arizona and wound up in Vegas. Great times.

Anyways, this summer we had to keep things local so I dragged us to Atlantic City for the DJ Expo where we met Biz Markie. I brought all the vinyl, CD's and gear to perform a Top 10 live from the DJ Expo but it was way too loud and the vibe wasn't funky.

Then Paula wanted to go to Hershey Park and to check out the Amish Farms outside Harrisburg PA so I packed all the stuff again hoping this time we could get a Top 10 done at some point on the roadtrip. But first we made a stop in Allentown at a place called Double Decker Records.

15 minutes before we shot the new Top 10....we stopped to dig.

Mr. DJfunktual, or Jaime if I may. Bruddah, i first discoverd you a year back or so, when you did the part on Bradley (Sublime). Since that video, I was literally planted in front of my screen watching your entire catalog of videos on YouTube. I have been a fan since day one, and the knowledge I have learned from you is priceless. I wish you success, if it hasn't happened yet to the level you wish to be at, and I will be looking out for more videos from you. Now that I have discoverd you on Hub Pages, It seems like I'm going to be plastered again in front of my screen reading up on your Hubs. Be safe and thanks.
