Well, that would make me "Pyret Ragnaröksgatan", meaning something like "Small Thing Twilight of the Gods Street".

Thats a fucked up name, and I´m not gonna use it.

just your name, or a stage name (your name with a twist) for publishing your stuff

no need for the DJ in front of your name, for any venues where you play the promo should make obvious your a dj in the context

I agree. The DJ in front of the name cheapens it, IMHO.

Seriously there a 'mash up' dj in seattle who plays these Hipster shows named

DJ Fucking in the streets

sometimes when your not super huge like carl cox your at the mercy of the promoter

my real name is Adonis but it's easier to go by Adonis but when my name gets put on a flyer it's DJ Adonis

my mom calls me Don

there was a time when having the DJ in front of your name ment alot - still does in my book

go figure

There's a dj in denmark called Ned Flanders. I always thought that was a cool name for a dj.

Back when I was in college, someone had a show on the college radio station called Radio Ghost Invisible*. He only had the show one semester, and as far as I know didn't lay permanent claim to the title.

I always thought that name had a real ring to it, and would make a rather good band name.

* An actual term used in radar scanning.

The Disc Jockey is Dying.......Long Live The Wav Jockey......

WJ hasn't quite got the same ring to it though.....maybe L J then for Live Jockey.........

I've always liked DJ Booth though............
