Cloud And Sun DJ Services Weekly Blog

Hi And Welcome to my regular blog. I will try and keep it humorous which may mean mildly colourful language at times. I hope you enjoy it and won't be offended. In order to protect the guilty; no Customers will be mentioned by name unless it's complementary and even then I may opt for anonymity. This is only because I wanted to impress you by putting in the word "anonymity."  If I can think of any other slightly more pointless and annoying rules, I will let you know in due course.

    Hi all. Haven't done a blog for a long time now. I've been away doing voluntary work. Alas, i missed my life as a DJ and I had to come back. So I'm well and truly back in business. Good news is, my diary is wide open so if you have any doubts about availability I shouldn't worry.  Already done a couple of gigs and it feels mighty good I can tell you. Just sorting out a place to live right now and it can't come soon enough. I don't mind living in a B&B but it get's a bit costly after a while.  

    Where I was working I was doing close to 100 hours per week. That sounds like a lot, but it's actually quite do-able. Only trouble is, you don't really have a life outside of it and it was that plus deejaying that I missed.

    Being back in what we would all call ordinary life is so much more appreciated now I can tell you..

    On the upside, I lost over a stone in weight and though I didn't really consider myself a fatty, for the first time in my life, my stomach is flat! All i have to do is get into my new place and give up eating bread. Kind of difficult to do when you're living on full english and then whatever you can buy at the garage for the rest of the day.... Last week I played at a hotel as I am tonight and I must have looked weird as i was wearing my old smart clothes which were roughly two sizes too big. Doesn't inspire great confidence in one's self looking like a tortoise peering out of it's shell! Never mind, have smaller trousers now so the "pair of flour sacks/refugee" look has gone.

    I've noticed that most TV is appauling. Did i mention I haven't seen any for around 4 months? Some great documentaries of course as always, but reality TV still has all the appeal of a cheese greater on one's privates. No change there then.

    I Was Sleeping in a dormatory for all that time, so it's great to have a bedroom again. You get used to other peoples snoring (and farting) but never the less it's good to be able to spread out a bit and breath cleaner air.

    Aah well, shoes to polish, food to eat so better get on.

    Back soon and have a great Christmas and new year!




    Here's Michael Mac intyre with a bit of Brighton and Hove and Holiday home truths.





  2. Hey all you wedding blokes. I'm not addressing the brides here, because I've never seen a bride make a speech yet, so if you are that bride, Please go somewhere else whilst your fiancee reads up on this lot.


    Blokes pay attention! I've collected some of the funniest quotes to mix in with your speech and in case you're wondering whether they are well worn, Don't worry. I've done tonnes of weddings and I ain't heard any of them yet!

    Here you go. Tuck into this little feast and don't say uncle Mike never does anything for you. OK?


    I was married by a judge. I should have asked for a jury. (George Burns)
    I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. (Rita Rudner)
    Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight. (Phyllis Diller)
    There’s only one way to have a good marriage and as soon as I learn what it is I’ll get married
    again. (Clint Eastwood)
    The secret of a happy marriage remains a secret. (Henry Youngman)

    A man walks up to a gorgeous woman in a large market and says, “Excuse me but, I’ve lost my
    wife somewhere here in the market, could you talk to me for a few minutes?” “Why?” she asks.
    “Well, whenever I talk to beautiful woman my wife suddenly appears out of nowhere.”

    Here’s to our wives and lovers. May they never meet.
    The most effective way to remember your wedding anniversary is to forget once.
    There are only two times in a man’s life when he can’t understand a woman – before marriage and
    after marriage.
    We call him the exorcist in our house. Every time he comes around, he rids us of all our spirits.
    It was an emotional wedding. The mother of the bride cried. Even the cake was in tiers.
    After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, “You know, I was a fool when I married you.” The
    husband replied, “Yes, dear, but I was in love and didn’t notice.”
    Speech-making is a bit like prospecting for Black Gold. If you don’t strike oil in 10 minutes, stop
    I’m told that the best speech makers follow three simple rules. Stand Up. Speak Up. Then, very
    quickly, Shut Up. I’ll try to stick to that advice.
    The brain is a wonderful thing. It never stops functioning from the time you’re born until the
    moment you stand up to make a speech.
    Why does a woman work for 10 years to change a man’s habits, and then complain he’s not the
    man she married? – Barbara Streisand
    The trouble with being the best man at a wedding is that you never get to prove it.
    I can honestly say that in all the years I’ve known him, no one has ever questioned John’s
    intelligence. In fact, I’ve never heard anyone even mention it.

    Man who sinks into woman’s arms, soon has his arms in woman’s sink. – Confucius

    Best man speech: Tim and Patricia, what a wonderful day it is to be getting married. As we all know marriage carries many new responsibilities. Patricia, from now on, you must never argue or even disagree with Tim, because as we all know he is now the head of the family and the king of his castle. You must keep your hair, makeup, and clothes perfect at all times. You should always cook Tim’s favorite foods and encourage him to go out with his friends often. Do these few simple things and you will surely be blessed with many years of happiness. (Pause to let it sink in) Patricia, I know that Tim loves you very, very much… (Slight pause) because he spent a long, long time writing this speech for me. Congratulations to you both!

    Marriage is a 3-ring circus - engagement ring, wedding ring and suffering.

    Marriage is the chief cause of divorce.

    Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.

    With her marriage she got a new name and a dress.

    I haven't spoken to my wife for 18 months- I don't like to interrupt her.

    My Wife Says I Never Listen, Or Something Like That.

    Why does it take 1 million sperm to fertilize one egg? They won’t stop to ask directions!


  3. Just a quicky today. I just went to County hall in Chichester to have a photoshoot done for the only trading standards approved mobile DJ in Worthing or sussex for that matter! Lot's of poses were posed as expected and when I asked to look at the thumbnails on the photographer's camera I was a bit depressed, as it really appears to shows my age! I'm not hiding the fact that yes I am 45, but those flashes pick up on everything, especially on a bloomin' white background! Never mind, They should feature me in the magazine one day soon, so when they do, I'll scan it in and use it here for more shameless self promotion!

    Playing at Landsdown hotel in Hove tomorrow night. First wedding disco of the year and a 6 hour long one. The only thing that bothers me is that it's a noise limited room, so I am going to have to have one eye on the box on the far wall all 6 hours to make sure I don't cut the power out. That's a shame. I'd rather be fully concentrating on everything else, like reading the crowd, choosing great tracks, mixing etc. Oh well, rough with the smooth eh?

    Just included a link to my facebook page on my home page, as various customers have sought me out and requested to be friends. I must say I'm flattered, but it's not a commercial page, so it comes complete with the odd swear word where I get passionate now and then. People, you have been warned...


    Have a great week and See you soon
