1. Questlove talks to Terry Gross about judging other people’s DJ skills:

Some music acts need cocaine to wind down or something, I DJ. Last night I went to a party for the first time where I wasn’t the DJ and I was telling my friend, ‘I’m so uncomfortable. I feel like Linus without his blanket.’ … I was judging the DJ’s segue, like, ‘Ugh, that’s a horrible segue. You can’t go from 120 beats per minute to 87. It just doesn’t make musical sense. And she’s not spinning on the one.’ After a while I was just too neurotic about it. It was turning into a Woody Allen scene, so I left the party.
