when you hear effects in songs on the radio and say to yourself 'hey, thats effect number 48 on my kaoss pad' and wonder why you haven't used your talent to release a number one smash hit.

Thank god for you trent. If you hadn't asked I would never have been enlightened.... You're like a dj Buddha, so wise. You ate a whole wheel of cheese and pooped in the fridge? I'm not even mad, that's just impressive.

I had this the other night:
When your at a club all of your mates expect you to know the name of every song being played, I do love it though when a song comes on that you are pretty confident that maybe 3 other people in there know it...kinda makes you feel a little special....!

-You know most tracks, the labels they came out on, which month they came out in.
-you get constant sms's asking whether to go to gigs or not,

regardless you will end up there anyway once you realise that you hate top40 clubs and the people who froth over lady gaga at 2am .

When you go out clubbing and instead of having a good time with your friend's your too busy listening to the transitions the dj is making and you pretty much know every song that is coming up next because your hearing the bassline come into play

Yeah when I'm drunk I have tendency to tell the person next to me what the next track is going to be. I'm not sure if anyone has ever cared, but I feel good knowing it.
