So i'm in the club Djing that night all going well till i hear the MSN youve got a message chime really loud over the PA - so i think fuck i must have opened it by mistake, then i hear the got email sound, then the send email sound and it slowly dawns on me that when i recorded in the vinyls i had also recorded all the system sounds :oops: :oops: :oops: Never made that mistake again.

In the late 90's, when I was doing "techno" I used to burn a cd and do the whole thing playback. I had no equipment that would look good on stage, so I used to bring fax machines, xerox and whatever stuff was available. So I spent my shows basically copying and sending faxes.

i check my email onstage via blackberry while playing with a rock band. does that count?

i've posted on the forum while driving on the highway. I've replied to threads while on break at the rock gigs, but never while actually onstage. unless i was taking break onstage.

a few months ago Paul van Dyk checked his e-mail in the middle of a gig at Beta in denver. Brad Roulier (founder of beatport) yelled at him. it was pretty funny

funny, I used to bring a vacuum cleaner, a blender (inspired after seeing ministry perform live), and a few other senseless objects on stage as well back in the 90's....

one time i checked in for a flight during a gig, does that count?
i was particularly poorly received....so...i just got a bunch of loops going and then checked into my flight and then got back to work.

we're considering putting this on a cd for when something crashes on us, we press play on the cd and it starts with this :)
