Beep Boop Boop

Saturday I went to an Atari Djing workshop. For those of you who haven’t heard of this (read: anyone normal), it’s the art of djing using only an archive of Atari sounds. Through an Atari. As in reformatting floppy disks and hard drives to make the keys on an Atari into some sort of mixer. Nerds, our day has come. Let us bask. Actually, without sounding too weird, some of the music is actually kind of awesome.

This is not to be confused with Gameboy Djing, which you may have heard about a few years back. They are warring. No, I’m not joking.

So, without further ado, the tie for quote of the day goes to the following:

8-Bit dude talking about video game djing: “I have absolutely no idea how to do that.”

Voice in the back: “What, how to please a woman?”

And then…

Fan: “(Famous Atari DJ), will you sign my Gameboy?”

Voice in the back: “That’s like asking Tupac to sign a Biggie CD!”

Oh voice in the back, how I adore you…

also on there should be "you can get pissed before a gig, but then you'll forget what you're doing and look a right tit." followed by bad ass swearing in a leather jacket.
