Well...here we go. It's Independence Day, y'all. However, more importantly, in my world, it's Charlie's birthday! Charlie has remained one of my best friends for the past 15 years. He has also remained one of the only people in my life that constantly inspire me. He is a true friend, a true artist and a true free spirit. Charlie and I really connected on a dance floor. We had been friends for yeeeeears prior but it was over some sick twisted house beats that we really were taken away. Charlie has gone on to create some of the most brilliant mixes himself that still, to this day, astound me. I could go on for hours writing about what an incredible actor he is or how he survived cancer or how he has changed each of his friends lives for the better and I'd still have more good things to say. He has the most amazing heart and I could not say enough kind things about him. I feel like I'm part of his family and I value each and every memory with this guy - past, present, and future. Here is to many many more, Mr. DJ.
