Oscar Night at DDPP

It was rather fortuitous that your den mother scheduled DJ Lux’s movie mix right after the Oscars. And it was our good fortune to be on the dance floor last night, as the mix was nothing less than magic. Movie magic. DJ Lux, aka seasoned vet Lindsey, claims that the music came from TV as well as movies, but I noticed that some songs had a fair amount of overlap into both.

But I digress. Last night was incredible; it turned this den mother’s day from a -3 to an 11 (on a scale of 1-10)! It was a mix that made dance vet and dance rookie alike (cheers to our two new ladies!) jump for joy amidst old movie memories. Following the event, I was contacted by the Academy, and was told about numerous nominations for next year’s Oscars, including:

Best Music: DJ Lux
Best Sound Editing: DJ Lux
Best Sound Mixing: DJ Lux
Best Choreography: Ladies of DDPP
Best lighting: The new faux lava lamp donated by Barb (Thanks prettty lady!)

Needless to say, we are flattered and honored. We’re preparing our thank you speeches now.

Hi fives go out to DJ Lux and all of the ladies that came out last night! And now, the nominees for best song are:
