“Don’t be a dick”: Turntable.fm talks to its subscribers

tt.fm's Orange Bear Indie Room

tt.fm's Orange Bear Indie Party Room

As a die hard Turntable.fm fan, I’ve been reading the service’s blog for a while. Starting in October tt.fm inaugurated a “room-of-the-week” series and has posted on the activities of four rooms. All include very funny exchanges between turntable users and tt.fm’s jessepedia.

October 31: Orange Bear Indie Party

The convention at the Orange Bear Indie Party room is that you don the Orange Bear avatar when you spin tunes on the deck. Why orange bears? “We spontaneously were all orange bears one time and then we started calling that an “orange bear party’,” explained Ramona Quimby, Age 8. The discussion continued from there:

jessipedia: How do you keep everything so chill?

stress : i think the pretentious attitude leaves the door because of all the orange outfits

DJ Don : rule #1 [“don’t be a dick”]

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 : we enforce rule number 1 stringently

GotMilk? : well, sometimes the room can get a little heated, but not often

DJ Don Started playing Pon De Floor by Major Lazer

luxstache : ahhhhhhhhhh! nice don

Evan Gerold : this is our room anthem

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 : it’s about to get real.

DJ Don : PON DE FLOOR

Steeeeve <3 : BRM BRM BRRRMMMMMMMMMM

(Mike) Suskie : MAJAH LAZAH

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 : OWAAAAAAAAAAAOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAA

DJ Don :ooOOOOOaOOooOoOooOoo

Steeeeve <3 : OOOOoooooooooaooaaaaooaaaaOOO

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 : LAIDIEZ

Ramona Quimby, Age 8 : LAIDIEZ

(Mike) Suskie : LET ME SEE YOUR BESTEST WINE

anhimal : this song never gets old

November 7: Classic Rock Room

The Classic Rock Room appears to be where the drama llamas go:

Maggie Bean: Jessi, this room has become an extended family of sorts. We share music and our real lives on here. It’s both that bring us together. I’ve been in other rooms on TT, none are like this.

Mischievous: and our troubles, one of our friends just started chemo

Pat Doten: BESIDES ALL OF THE FIGHTING TOO. SWEARING. RIOTS.

November 14: Indie and Such

Jessipedia asked the denizens of Indie and Such why they gravitate to this room, rather than similar dwellings. It appears that scintillating dialogue is key:

Copey: the conversation.

BaronVonChang: the people

Violent Tofu: the promise of sex.

Violety Fyre: it’s certainly not the music 😉

Copey: ridiculous, dirty, awk conversation.

Nikki Piecoro: we literally talk about everything in here. poop. babies. personal lives.

m. merrell: haha we are all kind of sarcastic.. and funny..  so it just kind works. we all get each other and we all love music..

jessipedia: People don’t get offended?

Wonderfrog: The ones that stay don’t. 🙂

November 21: Pop/Punk/Alternative/Punk/Emo

The latest room-of-the-week is the Pop/Punk/Alternative/Punk/Emo room. They get the last word on this post.

jessipedia: Ok folks, that’s it. Any last comments?

slickdtc: my cat farted in my face

Tired Tigress: Make sure you let the blog readers know that I need blood.

TheRareCreature: Last comment – our girls are cuter than the orange indie bear room….i told them that’s why we got the ROTW and they said there’s were cuter….YEAH RIGHT!
