today's theory set

today was my second time back on theory.

I tuned in to the DJ before me, and heard her make an off the cuff comment about how DJ Mermaid would be on next, to take us all to the Dark Side. this meshed perfectly with how I was feeling, so I decided to take it as a challenge and see where I would go. (I don't have a lot of dark music, but I was in a dark mood, so...)

it went pretty well.

as you can see, I couldn't keep up the "dark side" thing for the entire time, but I did pretty well. DJing just makes me happy, so it usually turns my mood around when I come at it feeling down.

this was like a 4 hour set! I like to go long, but just had to throw in the towel. still, sooooo glad to be back on theory radio.

I'm not having such a great day, so I'm gonna go. just wanted to get this setlist typed up before I forget it.
