The party started at 7pm
I scanned the room at 7:15, it was a packed house, ages 30-45 mostly men in business suits.
7:30 I threw on a little Rolling Stones and I saw a few of them loosen their ties.
8pm I put together a deadly concoction: Beastie Boys paul revere to Jay-z 99 problems to U2 Sunday Bloody Sunday to Eminem lose yourself: at this point their necks were officially loose I was just waiting for the rest of their bodies to follow.
I was grateful for that lame speech. It went on for like a half hour and by the time it ended people were desperate for just about anything. I threw it back to Biggie Hypnotize, their hands went up, then one verse later came Empire State of Mind
and the rest was history
