In addition to the Friday night party, Arisia '17 invited Dirge & I to do a sequel to last years full-on retro party on Saturday night!
We called it "Timey Wimey Dance II: Back To The Timey Wimey!"
I wore my "MAKE BELIEVE NOT WAR" shirt done in the style of shirt popularized in the 80's by WHAM!, which was my tribute to George Michael.
I'm sure I looked every bit the idiot as I did last year from watching everyone dancing and having so much fun while I got to play even more of the great music from the first 30 years of my life, including songs relevant to that recent "10 albums that shaped your teens" meme!

I'm once again so grateful to all who came and enjoyed the party and as always thank Arisia for allowing me to be part of your experience! Also big thanks to my booth-partner DJ Dirge, without whom I may not have been involved in these amazing events! Hopefully we'll be back next year! Be sure to tell them we did a good job for you!

If you want to join he and I at any other events we spin (and we do quite a few together,) please check my website for my schedule, info, links, etc...
Thank you all again!

Ok... Arisia '15 invited me back to spin the cross-genre Saturday Night Party with DJ Dirge.
We called it "Knowhere," re: Guardians of the Galaxy!
Here's a bulletpoint recap of some fun highlights:
* My cosplay: Minute Man. (If you get the "meta" of it, that's "special.")
* DAZZLER skating on the Dance Floor! Seriously cool! Dazzler was one of my first collected comics!
* Dirge and I "Roxbury'ed" to What is Love and "cage danced" to Elastic Heart!
* I punched Dirge in the butt and drew blood on his overly zippered ass!
* I played at least one new track I'd never used before in each set. All were pleasantly well-received!
So Super-Thanks to all who came and enjoyed the party and much gratitude to Arisia for allowing me the pleasure of participating again! With any luck... next year? ^_^
Also a special note of thanks to DJ Dirge. Over the years of our working together, he has been instructive, respectful, encouraging, and a remarkable ally & friend to me. He got my foot in the door for last year's Arisia dances and I can't thank him enough for his role in getting me involved!
