The Tree of Song (ToS) has received some upgrades!  I ended up with 
another wheeled base from an office chair to repurpose so I decided 
to make another tree since I also had some spare fence poles.  I 
guess they should now be called Trees of Song since there are two of 

DJ Buttstuf had gifted me with his old Pioneer DJM-600 mixer during 
his giveaways show!  SO RAD, THANK YOU DJ BUTTSTUF!!!  This arrived 
last week and was securely packed to survive the shipping.  It looks 
like he took really good care of it.  I've been messing around with 
the different features and plugging it into various sources.  I am 
hesitant in adding the mixer to the ToS since it is such a nice unit 
and I don't want it so exposed to the heat and dust in the garage.  
For the meantime, I have been keeping it in a brief case and 
connecting it to the tree during the tree sessions.  I hope create 
some music with it and learn some things about DJing.
