So here I sit with Elly, the YMCA song playing over the loudspeakers, and I feel weird.  Today I had a lot of stuff going on, and then I got to this set up and I started playing music.  It was a good time, I just felt sad for the many people who are trying to study in the building as stereotypical Bar Mitzvah music was playing.  I felt very emotional.  You see there is a lot of vulnerability and tenderness in playing music very loudly.  When you do it, you need to have confidence because it will piss a lot of people off.  So how do you DJ music of the early 2000s next to a library?  Well, you have integrity, you play music and think about the positivity, joy and utility coming from it.

There were many songs played; I was going to write what they were, but I had to go to a QPOCC meeting. But it was real, and there were people and they danced.  You all should come to the next Hillel Party for a guaranteed good time.  Also QPOCC is the Queer People of Color Coalition and it is  club of beauty, love, compassion and empowerment (just like Hillel).  Contact me for more info (soglesby@brandeis.edu)

Haters gonna hate, so be yourself.  Whether it is playing music loudly or making incoherent Innermost Parts posts.

Love, Scott
