I've finally given in and started my own blog. It was only inevitable, really. Back in the days of Myspace back in the long forgotten year of 2004, I used to post nonsensical blogs all the time. I would dive into my deepest of thoughts whether they were about the wonders of day-long "Law & Order: SVU" Marathons (they've since been replaced by nonstop episodes of "NCIS" which I refuse to get into because of Mark Harmon, a.k.a. the man who single-handedly ruined "Moonlighting"), my inability to do the Robot or to be good at beatboxing, successfully stealing a catchphrase from Kevin Federline, or weird, NyQuil-induced dreams. You know, the important stuff. More often than not, I'd end up posting setlists from various DJ gigs, as well. Then I finally gave in and signed up for LiveJournal, a place I will always ridicule since I usually picture it being a haven for pimply teenage girls writing awful love poems to Pete Wentz or whoever this week's Emo Posterboy is. I did, however, intend on making my LiveJournal my place to wax poetic about music- whatever the hell that means. Well, this all got overtaken by Facebook and Twitter- the two things that take up more of my time than I care to admit. Point is, that sometimes 140 characters aren't enough for me...
So here we are. Simply put, "Random Ramblings of DJ Brian L." is just that. And yes, I realize it's a bit of a mouthful much like "Bob Loblaw's Law Blog" (as Tobias Fünke would say, "you, sir, are a mouthful") but really, it's the most descriptive title I could come up with. And yes, I did consider calling this blog "The Situasian" as a tribute to one of my favorite people on "The Jersey Shore" who, coincidentally, is also the person on the show I most want to punch in the face. That and I really am Asian, so the joke just pretty much works on so many levels. Wait...where was I? Oh, right...Random Ramblings of DJ Brian L. will contain a lot of things: more than likely music-related, more than likely in list form, more than likely a setlist from a DJ gig here and there (after all, I am "DJ Brian L.")
That said, since 2009 is coming to a close, I will be posting my personal year-end best-of lists in the coming days. I'll be honest, part of the reason I created this blog is so I'd have somewhere to post these Best Of 2009 lists. I wish I was kidding. Anyway, my Top songs, Top albums, and Top shows of the year will be up here for all to see very soon.
Oh and recently, I came across my new theme song:
"B.R.I.A.N." I'M Fresh! You'Re Pretty!
"The Situasian" has got everything under control!
