So I was in the Best Buy the other day, ticking off a few presents on my Christmas list and sweating the new purple iPod nano with video capabilities when I heard a devastating mix of Marvin Gaye's "Heard It Through the Grapevine" over the hot beat from The Gorillaz's "Feel Good Inc." Every bone in my body wanted to rail against it; who would dare mess with the integrity of Marvin's "Grapevine?" But it sounded so darn gooood with all the mixing and scratching. And I couldn't help but to move it just a little.
Okay, a lot.
After a quick investigation through the aisles, I stumbled across a Best Buy guy working it out on the DJ Hero 1s and 2s, the new Activision game that's all the rage for Christmas this year. Think Guitar Hero, but way cooler, especially if you appreciate the poetry dee-jays create when they're working the wheels of steel. For sure, I gave it a whirl, but sadly, Spinderella I am not. I think with a little practice, though, I could be kinda dope with it—or at least look good trying.
And so can you if you win this super duper giveaway! The company that makes one of my favorite crisp, non-caffeinated soft drinks is teaming up with MyBrownBaby to give away one copy of Xbox DJ Hero Bundle, including the game and turntable.
