today's theory set - adventures of a red-headed stepchild in the house of love — LiveJournal
mermaid on the mic
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.

I'm feeling: crappy emo

aww, thanks! I don't know if you can have headphones at your job, but that might work.

however, I should warn you that there is no way to predict what I'll do next week... one of the rad things about Theory Radio is that we DJs can do anything (and I do mean ANYthing!) we want. so it's never the same thing twice - at least not for my set. ;-)

usually I am on from noon til 2pm. often I find myself in a rare groove/disco/funk mood... but ya never know!

thanks for the ups! it was just the perfect tonic for my mood - the right thing at the right time. and I ended with more listeners than I started with, so at least I know I wasn't driving 'em away!

hey... what are you doing May 12th? email me...

Sigh. If only Houston radio were that cool... I'd tune in every day!

Wow what a great set

I tuned into theoryradio today at noon and then realized I was 24 hours late for your set. The set list is really great. I'm so sorry I missed it.
Perhaps my Wednesday will arrive the same time as everyone else's Wednesday next week.

PS: Just got a 7 inch reggae cover of Gnarls Crazy by someone named Ghost!
