    Some people outright hate DJs. I think it’s because of this stereotype: DJs are egomaniac, know-it-alls. Then again, that could be folks jealousy talkin’.

    Mr DJ who thinks he is the dogs dangly bits just because he’s a DJ. You have to be humble.

    Drug dealers – I always get people asking me if I sell drugs too… That might just be the way I look though… hahaha.

    DJ? DJs are not musicians, they just press play, there is no skill in that!
    Also digital DJs have the computer doing all the work for them! Herp-derp!

    I just do that because it makes it absolutely clear what I do.

    “You don’t scratch, DJs scratch”. GTFO, they’re turntablists, not DJs (IMHO, turntablism is separate to DJing, the skills are so different, but still similar… like bus-driving and racecar-driving).

    I am still Considering what to do with my Name;
    I Feel that for DJ’ing I will Keep the ‘DJ’;
    But Once I Begin Composing my Own Material; Maybe then I will just go with my Name;
    Or even ‘Make up’ something Different; as I have heard that people use Different Names for Different Genres;

    However; ‘Stereotypes’ …
    Female DJ’s Must have Slept With The Promoter; or This Person; or That Person;
    (I am Obviously a Female DJ too; so I am not Presuming Anybody has Done Anything);

    A stereotype around my college is:
    DJs are stuck up snobs who only DJ to get laid/get famous/etc.

    I do it for the music, man! 🙁

    Another one more is:
    DJs are too cool to mingle with regular people.

    That we have every song imaginable that has ever been made and we’ll happily play it at a moment’s notice even if the rest of the crowd will drag us out of the booth and hang us from the highest beam…because you’re so special.
