Monday Morning Pet Peeve/New Track Posting!

Today is two-for-one Monday!! First the pet peeve; The Faux-Hawk and Guido Hair.


The Faux-hawk was made popular by David Beckham back in 2003, and if you've noticed he doesn't wear it anymore, so why do I still see them EVERYWHERE!!!!! It was cool 5 years ago, and it took Japan by storm. I know the US is a little late on the uptake when it comes to trends overseas, but seriously, let it go! The Faux-hawk is almost as bad as the EMO/Flock of Seagulls doo we see ultra-artsy and creative types wearing. Best example is that jackass who won "Project Runway", Christian Siriano ( I can't stand him! ). But what is truly worse is the Guido/Gotti boy haircut! These are the jokers that are in the club with sunglasses on! Made popular by the TV show "Growing Up Gotti", this hairstyle requires gallons of Aquanet and DippityDoo. I believe there is a hierarchy that goes along with the height of the hair. Reminds me of the hightop fade of the late 80's early 90's. Whomever had the highest hair, had the most juice!!!

So, in conclusion, if you see yourself wearing any of these hairstyles, consider this your cease and desist order!! If you are a witness to any of these infractions, it is completely within your rights to slap someone!

Second post: I was scouring the interweb and came across a new Estelle song! We know I love Estelle! This UK song bird has managed to cover one of my favorite artists, Stevie Wonder. I'm not sure when or on what album it will appear on, but check it out.

"GRIPS 'N LOVE" MIX NOW AVAILABLE!!!!!


As most of you know I've been DJing at The Park since May. It's turned into quite a party! I play mainly hip hop all night which I like because it keeps me versatile. Helps me sharpen my skills on the Hip Hop side.

So here is an extended mix from one of my Thursdays at The Park. The 2 hour mix consists of a blend of old classics and their hip hop counterparts as well as an hour of current hip hop club bangers.

I would've posted this sooner, except my data hosting site wouldn't house the file. If the download limit is reached, try again the next day. Enjoy and feel free to comment back and let me know what you think or shoot me an email at oz@djozlive.com.

peace..

Monday Morning Pet Peeve : Update!!!!

There is an update to be made on the last post about sunglasses in the club. It has been brought to my attention by a dear friend of mine, Mr. Lee, that there should be a disclaimer!

"If you wear sunglasses in the club and a Bluetooth headset when you are not on the phone, you have reached the level of "Ultimate Douchery". Now that one has reached this level of 'Ultimate Douchery', said person will be bestowed the proper name of 'Sir Douchness'!"

Wearing a headset in the car is perfectly acceptable! Safety First!! However, wearing one while shopping in the mall may be require you to be called out on your douchery!

Thank you Mr. Lee for bringing this violation to my attention.

Monday Morning Pet Peeve (on Tuesday): Sunglasses in the club!


As a DJ I spend 3-4 nights a week in the club. One thing that pisses me off almost as much as drunk chicks asking for Britney Spears, is dudes who wear sunglasses in the club! WTF??? I feel like shaking the S#it out of them and screaming over the music "DUDE!!! YOU LOOK LIKE A DOUCHE!!!!!!"

Is it really sunny in the club? Is the glare off the bar just to much for your eyes to take? Or is it all the glow sticks from the Asian House heads?? Why do you feel the need to wear sunglasses in the club? It is sometimes so dark in the club that I can hardly see where I'm going with unaided eyes.

I think that these ultra-cool people think they just look so good in sunglasses that they should not just limit their coolness to the day time...Bring on the night!

There you have it! Short and sweet! Thanks Sara S. for reminding me how much it pisses me off.

Monday Morning Pet Peeve : Reality TV


Today's pet peeve is dedicated to Reality TV. I admit, when first season of The Real World (circa 1992) was, I watched religiously, and even to this day I do watch a little but it's confined to "Survivorman" and "Man vs. Wild" and other A&E shows. The Reality TV I'm talking about are the "Love" (ie. "Rock of Love", "Flavor of Love" , "I Love NY", "Bachelor" etc etc), shows like "Keeping up with the Kardashians", whatever show's Paris and Nicole are on, ect ect.... Shows that I feel add absolutely nothing of value to society. At least with "Survivorman" and "Man vs. Wild" you learn something, like urine is 80% water and you can drink it if your stuck in the desert. Paris probably couldn't spell "pee-pee"!

I guess the thing that really pisses me off is when Reality "Stars" think they are actual stars!!! Or more importantly that they have "TALENT!". They begin to host parties and masquerade around Hollywood like they did something worthy of praise!

I understand why TV execs make Reality TV. They are popular, people can't seem to get enough of it, and they are EXREMELY inexpensive to produce. But, we need to step back and see the distruction that Reality TV is doing to our society. You have women doing appaling things and degrading themselves to be with Flavor Flav, a fricken California Raisin!!! What the F*ck? What is this teaching our young daughters, that you should sell yourself and your self-respect to make out with quite possibly the ugliest person since Tyrone Hill (see picture).

And for what?? A shot at becoming a celbrity or extending your 15 mintues of fame like that jackass "Joe 'The Plumber'". How about you try to develope some TALENT!!!! Just a thought......

Monday Morning Pet Peeve: Grooming Edition

Now I am all for men grooming themselves. C'mon! It's 2009! There is no reason why you should be rocking the Bert and Ernie Unibrow!

Luckily in this area there are places like "The Grooming Lounge" that are "salons" for men! That make men comfortable getting waxed, or a mani/pedi (that's manicure and pedicure if you don't know the jargon), or a facial. Let's face it men, if the President of the United States is doing pull ups with a fresh shape up before he drops a speech, it's time you step your game up!

But when does grooming go to far? When does it cross the line from being sexy and natural looking, to being downright GAY?!?! This leads me to my pet peeve for this monday: Men who arch their eyebrows like women!!!!!

I don't know why this makes my blood boil, but it does! I admit, I am the victim of unfortunate genes and I have a unibrow, and I do groom them so I don't look like a Geico caveman. But when in Puerto Rico (and certain parts of New York City), I noticed a large number of Latino men thining and arching their eyebrows. So much so, that their eyebrows looked better than their girlfriends! WTF? What is going to come next? Are you gonna start drawing on your eyebrows? Better yet, just shave 'em off and get new eyebrows tatooed on!! I don't know many women that feel comfortable with a man who is more groomed than they are. Metrosexuals are gone! (They all let their inner Gay come out) Women don't want a man who takes longer to get ready than they do! More and More in speaking with my female friends, women want a man to BE A MAN!! Stop being a punk! Pick out the restaurant! Take charge in the bedroom! STEP YOUR GAME UP!

So please Latino and Non-Latino Men, stop tweezing your eyebrows into oblivion. You look Gay as hell ( no offense to my homosexual friends - you all keep doing what you doing! ).

Later!
