A friend of ours is getting remarried tomorrow night — true story. For her big day, she’s asked my lovely wife Amy to handle some live music and I’ve been asked to do some disc jockeying during the reception. I can handle that. In fact, I love doing that.
Somehow it slipped out to “Chet Chesterfield” that this big event was about to take place. He doesn’t think very highly of my abilities, it seems. It also seems that “Chet” has relatives all over the place. I couldn’t even go to watch Fourth of July fireworks the other night without bumping into a member of Chet’s bloodlines.
Before the fireworks could begin, a big rodeo was taking place at the arena nearby. The rodeo announcer caught my attention with his raspy voice that sounded a bit like Wolfman Jack with a Southern drawl. “Booger” was the name. “Booger Pickens,” and rodeo announcing is his game.
Unfortunately, I gave “Chet” my cell phone number and “Booger” texted me a link to some YouTube videos that he put out there to share in my “BIIIIIIG TALENT SHOW” with a bit of timely advice on how to handle the DJ’ing portion of this upcoming wedding reception.
“Chet” just can’t seem to get it through his head that I’m a big boy, I’ve done this kind of thing before, and he doesn’t need to keep giving me suggestions on everything. But, well, it does seem to run in that family (kind of like their mouths).
So, here he is, “Booger Pickens,” showing how to do a wedding reception DJ’s job “the right way.”
Do you have a “hidden talent” that you’d like to share with the world? Feel free to do so! All I ask is that you keep it at a “PG rating,” because, after all, this is SUPPOSED to be a family friendly show!
How do you do it? Use a camcorder or a webcam, silly! And come up with something original to post on YouTube so I can share it here! Put on your thinking caps, boys and girls, and feel free to send me those YouTube links to (Do I dare give out my personal email address? Yeah, why not, I know how to use the Delete button there too. And we’re all friends here, right? Right?) firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to give me your first name and where you’re from so I can let people know. I won’t be putting them up every day, maybe just make it a Friday-only show. A great way to end each week (if you give me that many each week).
Be sure to give me a subject line on your email of “The View’s Big Talent Show Submission.” And I am serious!
Good luck! I look forward to seeing what you’ve got! And, like the Foo Fighters once sang (a time or two), “KEEP IT CLEAN!”
