Last night a TA saved my life

It's funny how students sometimes think that their teachers have no social life. Students may do sport, drink themselves into oblivion or engage in activities that are better not named on a public blog, but teachers... no, THEY can't be doing anything more than... teach or grade papers. Sorry, but this could not be further from the truth. I for one have a perfectly normal and healthy social life, but needless to say I won't go into detail here (that's just private, right). There's one thing I'm willing to share with you: my love of electronic music. I'm even willing to dj at one of your student parties, provided you like the music I usually play of course. I've included a few links to some stuff I'm listening to right now. If you like this kind of stuff, you might like my dj sets. Enjoy

"Students may do sports, drink themselves into oblivion or engage in activities that are better not named on a public blog"
--> Are you thinking of someone in particular?

"but teachers... no, THEY can't be doing anything more than... teach or grade papers. Sorry, but this could not be further from the truth. I for one have a perfectly normal and healthy social life, but needless to say I won't go into detail here (that's just private, right)."
--> Are you referring to the "activity" that you mentioned last Tuesday?
(A hint for those who weren't there: it has to do with a way of punishment.)

"I'm even willing to dj at one of your student parties, provided you like the music I usually play."
--> I can say "You're hired!" (unlike Donald Trump and his famous "You're fired!" on the show The Apprentice).

I forgot to say that I only have vinyls... so I need turntables to dj

I mean records of course

Have you been to "I Love Techno" this w-e, by chance?
Electronic music is a bit repetitive, but enjoyable nonetheless...
Still, I can't picture anyone else but ecstasy-lovers who would listen to that more than 20 minutes :)

No, I'm not into mass clubbing anymore. Too many people and the music is just too loud. I used to though, not so long ago. But then again I've always preferred organizing small-scale parties (say 200 people or less). WHat makes you think every electronic music lover does E?

pierre-yves said...

small-scale, huh :)
i don't know, it just seems you've got to be in an abnormal state to be able to stand this music (i really have trouble writing, as i'm letting Anne discover your Youtube links...i have the impression that my mind is working slowlier...)
Although, as it is already the second time that i listen to theses songs, i think i'm beginning to like it !
never say never...

pierre-yves said...

see, i knew i'd forget something with this mind-numbing music :)
I meant to ask you what "TA" in your title stood for ?

pierre-yves said...

moreover, the I Love Techno logo looks like two E pills intertwined... :)

TA is short for Teaching Assistant
