File under “occupational hazards”.
If you're playing the clean version of any Snoop track in a club at 2 AM you need to reevaluate your life.

Inexplicable rookie mistake.
Definitely became THAT Dj tonight – giving shout outs to local rappers, their cliques and a dude named GO. Still perplexed about that one.

Some nights, you do what you feel, others you do what you must.
That one Chad with Latino friends just won't let go of "Danza Kuduro".

Don't ask me what I'm playing next. You'll find out when everyone else does.

You’ll have more fun this way.
If you have no idea what the words "upbeat" or "faster" actually mean, you must NEVER use them when talking to a working DJ.

A plea falling on deaf ears…

Problem solved, Meistro
Headed to work sock-less, wearing Crocs, tiger pants, and a DGK Shirt. Can't tell if I've transcended fashion, or given up on #lyfe.

Don’t push him, he’s close to the edge.
All euro dance music requests tonight met with: "Gimmie money and ill play it, this is America we like rap music and money"

It’s not just a mixtape, it’s a way of life.
The bass in club ten makes my booty tickle. At least i think that's the bass.

Tittsworth is no stranger to TMI.
It's official if you use the word trap when talking to me while im djing you instantly become invisible
— DJ Ross One (@djrossone) August 11, 2013
It’s like MAGIC.
My goal in djing was to play dance music I like for people that like it. Now I'm playing macklemore and getting called a faggot by edm fans.

Some douche just asked me to "somehow incorporate a song about eating p*ssy for the first time" into my set. O_o

Saved the best for last.
