What is the craziest thing a fan has ever asked you?
To play Shakira during a house set. Oh, and there was the time that two girls asked to make out in the DJ booth while I was spinning at The Limelight.
Rising South Korean model Daul Kim was found dead in her Paris apartment last Thursday, November 19th. The 20-year-old, who moved to Paris from South Korea, is said to have been depressed, although she jokingly denied it when asked. She had graced the runways for leading designers including Chanel, Dries van Noten and Alexander McQueen. Despite her success, she had hinted at her desire to end her life in her popular internet blog – a series of poems, photos and thoughts called "I like to Fork Myself". The fashion community is saddend by the lost of such an incredible talent. She will be missed dearly.
