    Calvin Harris isn’t pointing at anything. Why isn’t he pointing at anything? He looks lost in thought. What are a DJ’s deep thoughts? He sucks.

    You laugh, but Tiesto knows that airport gigs are like printing money.

    Interesting that out of all of these “DJs”, not one of them appears to actually be mixing.

    I was at the party where that tiesto pic was taken!

    Wet Republic pool party at MGM Grand for EDC Vegas week.

      Oh and a bottle a water was $14 so I believe that the guy made $36m last year if all his venues are priced that way.

      I bought one bottle at the beginning of party and filled that shit back up in the bathroom.

    I like to see people thrive inside their endeavors. Unfortunately they’re no beneficial remedies for myself in this bullshit ! At 50 and faced with dying rapidly, I’m gonna kill up as many crackers and Jews as I can before I go on Wall Street. You must pay for stealing my ability to be comfortable on my death bed !
