Saying goodbye to beloved gear
This morning I gave away my old DJ system. After upgrading all my equipment, my old gear — a constant companion for 10 years of gigs — has finally become obsolete. I tried to sell it on Craig’s List and Facebook, but didn’t find any takers. So I decided that I would try to find a good home for it. Somewhere it could live out the rest of it’s years surrounded by good times and good people.
As we carried the big box out of my basement for the last time, I felt a little sad. It’s like seeing an old friend go. We had so many great times together. A DJ residency in New York in 2004, a few summers in the Hamptons, weddings in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland. But it’s being adopted by someone who plans on putting it to good use on Manhattan rooftops, Burner parties and back in the Hamptons.
I miss you already, Old Friend.
I better learn how to face it.
