I already did happy hour for real tonight.

Gimme a Blue Moon, whoever's behind the ol' bar.

** Props open front door and walks in with an air of change. I make a mental assessment of the room and it's layout and proclaim **

There! ** and points to the far corner **

The DJ booth will go there.

** Walks outside and whistles loudly. A few minutes later 4 guys wearing jeans and wife-beater T's stroll in with wood and construction materials. I don my own Black Hardhat with a red-apple U2 insignia, ready to get to work **

Ok boys, here is what I'm looking for ** Spreads blueprints on the bar, and begins to point excitedly at the different aspects of the DJ Pit **

I hope the girls don't come in while we're under construction, I wouldn't want these hunky men to get distracted by our U2 babes.

** Directs traffic for the linebacker sized workmen until the new DJ pit is finished **

Hey, don't forget the mirror-ball. This place wouldn't be complete without one of those! ** Flashes back to the last mirror-ball in the Octagon and what happened to it **

http://www.faulguy.com/Interference/Jungle.htm (Check out 2nd link)

** Inspects the new pit and points out various additions **

With all this digital music going around, we absolutely needed a killer computer backending this process. I was able to *ahem* borrow some stuff from work. OK, let's start with the dual processor RX2600 using the Itanium chip, running Windows server 2003. But what we really need is storage!
So, I've arranged for a Disc Tower with 14 72GB drives. That's about a Terrabyte of storage. That should keep us dancing for a good many years. I'm still working on the iPod, iTunes interface, but we'll work it out.

I'll feed that all into our stereo system right here, and we should be able to answer any and all requests. I've had them include a few turntables just in case we actually have someone who can mix.

Hey Guys! Thanks for your help, I need one last thing from you. Haul that out of here!!! ** Points at the Jukebox and then gives it the thumb **

It's been replaced by a touchscreen that you can use when the DJ isn't home.

And let us not forget the speakers ** Walks behind the dj booth and grabs the remote. Walks up to one of the new bass bottom speakers, puts on Vertigo and turns it up loud Captain**

** As the volume increases, my clothes begin to flutter like the guy in the memorex commercial and as Bono's voice reaches a crescendo and he sings "You give me something I can feeeel, Feee-eel!" my clothes break free of body and fly toward the fireplace. **

** I'm left standing there with the remote and the hardhat which was tightly secured **

Oh st, ** hurriedly scoots over to the couch and grabs the blanket that Merc used yesterday to stay warm and modest **

Glad no one saw that. I better turn this down. This could be a powerful weapon in the future

Hey Tara come over here, I've got something to show you. Stand right about here...

**Walks into the bar**

Tim! You're... only wearing a blanket-sarong...!

**Tries very hard not to stare, and look too **

**Walk up to the bardesk**

Ehmm... Could I have... Ehhh... I would like...

**Is indeed very distracted by the bartenders new outfit! **

Just give me something to drink, ok!

**Realises shes all alone in the bar**



**Goes over to the new touch screen music thing**

Yeah, this one...

**"Dreaming with tears in my eyes" starts playing**

**Grabs a pillow in the couch and starts dancing around alone on the dance floor, eyes closed and pillow in her arms**

... will do fine tonight...

**Imagining the the pillow is Bono... **

**The song ends - goes over to the couch with the pillow**

Thanks for the dance - It was a pleasure dancing with you!

**Walks out of the bar**

G'night!

***strolls into the bar and stops quickly in the doorway***

Wow, lots of new faces in here. I remember back in the good ol' days and being a regular. Times do change, don't they.

*spies Stars4U2 and winks as she slides into a seat by the bar*

You know what I like to drink. Make sure it's nice and cold or I'll have to dig up the old bar wench uniform and show you how it's done!

Can I be in love with a piece of electronic equipment? I think I might be. It's like a new pet...I can't let it out of my sight. I got the matching black iTrip on the same day and I was driving around aimlessly in my car and listening to the iPod just because I could. I don't know how I've survived without it.

Did you name your iPod 'COS-erator'?
