  • Dirty South's in town. The DJ/producer. Not the genre of hip-hop music.

  • The DJ/producer chats about a 3-D show, why he wears sunglasses at night, and “Sex Weed.”

  • He’s collaborated with Snoop Dogg and the Black Eyed Peas, but this weekend, the German producer/DJ is bringing jackin' house.

  • A DJ that received death threats? He seemed like a pretty nice guy to us...

  • Face-melting Turkey Day meals, carols with Liberace and a drive to the North Pole (Experience)—it's time to shake your holiday season up!

  • Opulence, decadence, excessive ornamentation and extreme wealth.

  • The most common mistake they make is thinking bigger equals better.

  • The program places local youth from single-parent and low-income homes on skate teams, pairing them with adult skate mentors.

  • Whatever you do can and will be used against you in a court of public opinion.

  • It’s similar to the magic trick where the woman is sawed in half, except in this trick, she is known as the Zig-Zag Girl.
