The degree to which I like this depends greatly upon (a) who is paying for said booze; and (b) who get's stuck with serving bouncer duty.

I'm totally down to spin record ANYTIME.

I could do this if my plan w/ warrenpchi works out,

as somebody could cover my gear at the table while we spin.

 

I really dig that idea!  I've got some KILLER headphone tunes on wax (Atoms for Peace, Aphex Twin, The Haxan Cloak, Flying Lotus, etc.)

Hmm, and we know two people coming that also got some skills (because you can't be doing that for 8 hours bro).  That's not like a challenge or anything, just more of an "it ain't right" kind of thing.

 

So then the next question is, how do we snake live feed taps to everyone that wants to run that as a source?

Lol, I think he's got better stuff than RAM...  biggrin.gif

 

HOWEVER, if he wants to pull a track off of RAM, I wouldn't mind Doin' It Right to test bass response.  wink.gif

DJ spinning tunes whose signals are cabled to anyone who wants the signal. Anyone who is tapped in would be listening to the same thing, like a silent disco. People would take turns spinning whatever they wanted. Alternatively, we could have different genres segregated with different DJs and different signals to tap into.

 

Segregated BYOB booze room (with ID check) supplied with brandy snifters, tumblers, a fridge/cooler with ice, low tables, plush couches and shared signal ports.

 

Anyone else like this idea? If so, can we actually make this happen?


Great ideas. If we can figure out the logistics and setup the first might be doable. I think we may need to leave the drinking to an after (or before) meet get together.........but a cool idea nonetheless.

I am getting more excited about this by the day!  DJing would be fun but then I would need to bring a lot more gear and I can't commit to that right now. Though this thought especially the Silent Disco one is being bounced around by some of us around here.

Signed up on eventbrite but I may have some possible work issues to get through. Hopefully I'll be free that day. Not bringing anything stationary. Probably wiill bring an iem of my choice. Haven't decided yet.

I know right?  You know what I temporarily forgot?  That it was NEXT month and not this month.  Still like 5 weeks away, ugh!

Roger roger.  Just remember that the most important thing to bring - if nothing else - is you.

Although I don't mind adult beverages on the whole, during an event like this my concern is Any Beverage.

 

As in any beverage near equipment, set down on a table while listening.

It could be a catastrophe.

FYI, there's an unspoken tradition that there's always a hidden bottle of Scotch somewhere at a meet.  And other than temporarily enhancing certain people's personalities, no lasting damage was done.

I'll do my best to bring a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label...

But - other peeps will have plenty of headphones to try 

w/ the Studio Six right??

post #238 of 665

I don't think I worded my question correctly.

 

Will there be precautions taken to prevent someone in the aisle from inadvertently spilling a drink on an exhibitors gear?

I don't know how crowded the aisles are, but, if congested, someone gets knocked or goes to sit down unnoticed and "liquid" spills on the gear.

 

I think you should consider limited drinking and food to a safe area.

Yeah, I think almost everyone is going to bring a pair to go around listening to stuff with.

Well, there aren't any aisles per se.  Plus, its always understood that we don't bring food around the gear anyway.  No need to worry, not gonna wreck any gear with food/drink.

The Scotch is generally separated from both the gear, as well as the main meet itself.

BTW guys, please feel free to use my avatar in calling attention to the meet.  We're getting close, and if there is to be a last minute influx of attendees, third_eye needs to know sooner rather than later in order to book the rooms.  Here's the avatar I'm using:

third_eye, might want to put this avatar in the first post?  Just so more people know about it and use it.  smile.gif
