Wherein we discover the hidden link between disco and Downton Abbey.

We’ll admit, it got hairy there for a minute last week. What with the SOPA protests and Wikipedia going blank for a whole day on January 18th, thousands of high school and college students were forced to consult primary sources. Worse, your den mothers were at risk of not having a reliable reference point from which to begin every single one of their blog posts. The horror, the horror! Thankfully, it appears now that plans to move the bill along in Congress have stalled and once again, we can count on the Hive Mind to explain the world to us. To wit:

Gorgonzola is a veined Italian blue cheese, made from unskimmed cow’s and/or goat’s milk. It can be buttery or firm, crumbly and quite salty, with a “bite” from its blue veining. It looks a little something like this:

Morganzola, on the other hand, is a DDPP regular who finally treated us to her very first mix last Wednesday night. It looked a little something like this:

Like her namesake, Morganzola’s playlist ranged from buttery smooth (Erykah Badu’s voice on “Tyrone,” the evening’s cool-down song) to, well, quite salty (Kelis gettin’ all capital B-Bossy at us). And the assemblage of women present that evening displayed some of their, well, cheesiest dance moves for the occasion. By “the assemblage of women” I am, of course, primarily referring to your den mothers, whose minds landed somewhere in the gutter at the beginning of “Ring My Bell” (because, I mean, really…) and couldn’t be rescued until several songs later.

We’re quite certain some of those moves would have incurred the ire of one Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham. Who is she, you ask? Only the most hilarious character to pop up on British television in ages. If for some reason the words “Upstairs/Downstairs-style BBC soap opera” aren’t enough and you STILL need convincing, we highly recommend the whole “Shit the Dowager Countess Says” video. Suffice it to say, she’s the type of woman who gets what she wants and isn’t afraid to, ahem, ring a little bell to make it happen:

Thanks, DJ Morganzola, for making us laugh long and hard and, even better, work up a great sweat while doing so. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for your next mix!
