- You will sweat till you bleed or else!
Transcend: verb (used with object)
1. to rise above or go beyond; overpass; exceed: to transcend the limits of thought; kindness transcends courtesy.
2. to outdo or exceed in excellence, elevation, extent, degree, etc.; surpass; excel.
Ya know, I have never truly understood it when fellow DDPPers have mentioned that they were “transcended” by a playlist. Don’t get me wrong, I have been moved, danced my ass off, dropped it low, chair danced (ala Flashdance), jumped around, sang myself hoarse, tried to emulate Kelley C & her magical booty, wrapped myself in rope lights, wore a tutu & pretty much everything else…just not “transcended”. Well–NO MORE, it is official this killer mix by Da Bride brought me to my knees & moved me someplace I have never been and it was GLORIOUS!
All ladies in attendance not only wanted to Dive In The Pool from the intense dancing going down in the studio, we became pools of sweat as well. Add to that the heat radiating off our moving bodies (+lack of AC) as we rhythmically spun, jumped, and moved to all 14 songs Da Bride put together. This song here, really took me to another place & I am grateful for it…check out the chic in her PJ’s (awesomesauce!):
So for you chicks who missed out…here is the playlist:
You know what esle you makes Da Bride the coolest ever?!?!? She put a RING POP on it (you may die of jealousy–right now!). Da Bride brought a bag of the sweet rings & asked each of us “will you dance with me?”. Seriously…it does not get better than that.

Up for a little quiz?
So our DJ tonight was the wonderful, the melodical, the one and only DJ Fanta. Which of the following is true of her name?
1) She loves her this fizzy drink so much that she wanted to DJ its namesake
2) It’s short for Fantastic
3) It’s short for Fantasy
4) She could not pronounce the letter “S” as a child and every December 25th kept asking “where’s Fanta Claus?”
E) It’s short for Fantazerova – which is Russian for “a person who likes to make things and lives in a world of fantasy.”
Give up? Here’s a clue.
Yes – that is the incredible South Russian Owtcharka dog, which should clue you in that E is in fact the lucky answer! Our DJ Fanta hails from Russia, by way of Latvia, and exported to our American crew a whole slew of international hits. Lucky for us, she smuggled them smartly, stacking them in the perfect order and delivering them with a handshake.
Oh wait – what’s that? You’re not sure where Latvia is? S’Ok. Uncle google is here to help you out, you ‘Merican.
And yes those are the real colors of the country. The big white stripe is a highway of sorts, not unlike the autobahn, stretching the length of the country. There they race home-made boats on wheels manned by small, nocturnal forest creatures.
If that’s not too exotic for you, then check out this mix already. DJ Fanta took us to her fantasy world – a world in which you can circumnavigate the globe in an hour’s time, without any jet lag or deep vein thrombosis.
