    Trainwreck: when a beat mix goes wrong.

    I always thought of this as even worse, like when someone bumps the table and a needle goes careening off the vinyl.

    "Shoes in a dryer" - Two horribly mismatched drums that are completely out of synch and sound like...shoes in a dryer.

    Some guys at the record store I worked used to refer to certain club house cuts as "Pots and Pans," which I took to mean it was like noisy, non-melodic hard-house that sounded like someone banging on pots and pans. One dude would ask the club buyer "What's this one like?" and the buyer would just give a gas face and say "Pots and Pans."

  • this is more record nerd than dj, but one of my favorites is

    Bacon and Eggs - a record that's all beat up and sounds like someone's sizzling up some breakfast when you play it.

    a similar nerdism is 'rice crispies' - lots of snap, crackle and pop

    I can't be the only one who uses "piss record" to describe a long cut that you throw on when you need to go take a piss.

    NRR - piss shiver.

    when you get a spontaneous shudder through your body while taking a piss. A friend of mine has a theory that women do not get piss shivers...

  • crate whore - a female DJ friend of mine used to used this term to describe anyone helping her with her crates.
    example - "I really need a "crate whore tonight."

    Because of this phenomeonon, we used to simply refer to piss ASW shiver. As in "just going for a shiver mate"

  • Dick Beaters - (adj.) The hands of unwanted or unknown folks who think they are cool enough to just walk up to your crates or bags and start flipping through.

    example -
    THEM: "Hey, Play this next."
    YOU: "GET YOUR Frickin' DICKBEATERS OFF MY RECORDS. YOU DO NOT KNOW ME."

    PS - Can we get this lame "frickin" thing lifted? I think we're all (physically) old enough to experience the grown talk.

  • Cussers - dude's "in the clurb" who feel the need to say fucki[/b]ng and other vulgar words. I keep some
    Heavy D in my bag just for these dudes. Then I hit em with "radio edits only dawg, a child might
    walk by the club I ain't having that on my conscience."

    Cheese cloths - dude's with improper gear who don't make it past the front door. No sneakers dawg.

    Dildo juicers - chicks who spill drinks near your microwave box

    Bathroom Bob - the dude who offers to "get on" and "dj" if you "need" to "take" a "bath room" "break."

    Bathroom Becky - chick who makes a request and when you say no takes a dump on your records. This one is only funny in retrospect.
