Not exactly the wheels of steel

So last night Ben and Wes let Melvin and I take over the DJing duties for a little while (roughly half the night), starting with a very brief detour into rap* in the midst of Punk Night and then continuing until we shut it down around 2 in the morning. Melvin knows a lot more of the catalog than I so I was mostly on CD-swapping duties with the occasional "hey, why don't we play X?" comment. I got a lot of my standards** out which was nice, but Melvin did the lion's share of the actual brain work. A fun night, in any case, although of course when you're figuring out what to play next you're not paying that much attention to the music...

*(consisting in its entirety of Ol' Dirty Bastard's "You Don't Want To Fuck With Me", "Careful (Click, Click)" by the Wu-Tang Clan, "Run" by Ghostface and Jadakiss and then "It's Tricky" by Run-DMC)

**("Bankrobber" by the Clash, "Crack Rock Steady" by Choking Victim, "A Little More For Little You" by the Hives, "Party 'Til You Puke" by Andrew WK, etc)
