why dj buddha?

Why the buddha is my dj? The short answer is that it was a play off of the phrase “God is my dj,” featured on t-shirts and bumper stickers from these guys. Over time, though, it has taken on a variety of other meanings for me, most simply, a nod to the intentional mixing of disparate musical elements that is a hallmark of turntablism. Only, in my case, since I’m not really a dj, I am mixing my personal and scholarly interests in Buddhism, blurring the (imaginary) distinctions between separate lives.

Or maybe I mean this. Or this.
