Time to put to rest one of the worst kept secrets in the area. Today I am burying the name and my association with “Reed Rothchild”. For the new readers who are unfamiliar or anyone else out of the loop, My real name is Jake Komara, not Reed Rothchild. I started the name back in 2007 when I lived in Las Vegas and every time I got put on a bill to DJ, my name would always be spelled wrong which drove me crazy. Since I kind of look like an even more mongoloid-ish version of John C Reilly, I decided to change my DJ name to “Reed Rothchild”. Another awful idea looking back at it. Get tired of people spelling your name wrong so change it to a longer one. Plus, I was really a big fan of the movie Boogie Nights.No more nicknames, no alias’s, it’s just Jake from here on out
Right now half of you are saying to yourself “who gives a flying fuck” and like, 4-10 of you are saying “what’s next, Jake?” Well, let me address the 4-10. I won’t be changing the Head of Rothchild name or brand since I have been fortunate enough to get it to the point where HOR isn’t about just “Reed Rothchild”, It’s become more of a general movement, mindset, and follower base. I am simply the Kim Jong Il serving the republic and founding president which has died today, Reed Rothchild. I will work restlessly to continue to build the republic by providing laughs, discussions, and music to all who choose to listen. In addition, we will be relentless in crushing fuckery, hypocrisy, and all enemies who stand in our way. I have since put off DJing indefinitely to focus bringing up younger, hungrier people, who are humble, work hard, but need help getting noticed. That challenge starts today. For all of you who came out to a DJ gig of mine, listened to a mix, did a shot with me, hit the after hours shenanigans, I just want to say thank you and I will NEVER forget you and the times we had together. Here’s to making 12 more years of great memories!
Now we mourn today. For that skinny jeans, Starter Jacket, Jordans wearing bama is gone, just call me Jake. All Hail the HOR Republic.

We seem to have stumbled onto something after launching our first CORNY DJ PROMO SHOOT post back in October. Since then, I’ve received hundreds of pics from readers who have come across DJ’s cringeworthy promotional pics. As the pictures kept coming in, I noticed a trend with a lot of female “DJ’s” in their photos. Most of them were either half naked, doing strange poses, or doing things that have nothing to do about being a DJ but involving DJ equipment. This prompted further research about female DJ’s around the world and in particular ones who label themselves as being a “Sexy DJ” or “Skin” DJ who market their physical appearance as opposed to skill set.
The more I looked into these skin DJ’s the more I was blown away about how bad and corny they are. At first it was enraging going through all the pics and promotional videos of girls standing around in a booth making sure they looked good before sounding good. The bad news is that as long as promoters keep booking them, they’ll still have a gig. The silver lining in that is they only really play at upscale, douchey bottle service clubs where shallow, plastic face people go to overpay for drinks and listen to terrible music anyway. The day they start to get booked to play major EDM festivals is when you break the glass and pull the alarm. Now before we unveil our pics, vids, and DJ’s I just want to throw out that there are a lot of amazing female DJ’s out there who MURDER IT on the tables and are booked based off strong production, top tier DJ sets, and most importantly just being themselves. Not a two channel stripper with headphones. So in no means is this post a blanket statement to all female DJ’s because most of them are out their killing it, this looks at the ones who are ruining it for everyone.
Corny Promo Pic Criteria: Usually involves people standing anywhere but in a DJ booth trying to look “epic” and usually holding at least 1 piece of Dj equipment which most of the time is a CDJ, Serato Record, or headphones. The best part about these pics is that there never plugged into anything nor are said Serato records on a turntable. Just out in the city or the woods holding DJ equipment.
These photos, videos, and DJ’s are the best of the worst that we found through the bowels of the internet and what you the readers sent in. If you have any you would like to share, please post them on the HEAD OF ROTHCHILD FB PAGE
DJ Lab on the Periodic turntables droppin the base. ooof sorry, Ill show myself out
When did Iggy Pop start DJing?
Noticed a few promo pics of ladies floating? Don’t know what thats about but I’m pretty sure this one is on PCP
Hurts the soul being reminded that this happened
Seriously, what are you doing? Nothing is connected and that looks incredibly inconvenient.

If ya man is gonna hold up the controller, least he could do is plug it in.
Who plays like that?
Here is where things begin to get a little weird. A lot of our image searches for “Female DJ’s” would lead us to Shutterstock, a site that sells stock photos and videos of people doing random stuff. When you type in “Female DJ” these stock videos come up. Basically, this is their general consensus of what a “Female DJ” does.
It gets weirder
“WORLDS SEXIEST DJ” JUICY M As we ventured further into the abyss of female skin DJ’s, we came across this laugher who goes by DJ Juicy M. She bills herself as the “The worlds sexiest DJ”. When she’s not buying likes on her Facebook page, (lives in Ukraine, most fans in Mexico, C’mon son!) she is trying to get people to take her serious as a DJ. She attempted to put out a promo video of her cutting and beat juggling but as you can see by the timing but most importantly, looking at the channel outputs on the mixer clearly, it is a pre-recorded mix. Thanks for playing though, at least check out 1:50 – 2:30, straight clown shoes.
Not gonna lie, taking a selfie in the booth while DJing is some next level Johnny Cage shit right there.
To this point things have gone from funny, to strange, to douchey, and now it’s going to get really fuckin weird. A HOR reader from the Netherlands sent me a link to a page where this female DJ starts a photo shoot then things get freaky. I couldn’t understand the language on the site but it’s a photo shoot with this this chick who goes by DJ Sabrina. The first photo is a typical one of her wearing headphones, no big deal. But after that she’s outside on a farm somewhere gettin fresh with animals. The fuck did I miss? Here is the photo sequence. Where the hell am I? Have the weirdest boner right now. After seeing that I waived the white flag because my attention deficit internet journey had taken me so far off the beaten path, I never want to see a female “skin” DJ again. Damn you internet! Just went to look for a couple of photos and look where I ended up. However, this adventure did teach me a lot. I learned not to get upset over these ratchet, half naked DJ’s that still get booked because there will always be douchebags somewhere in Your City USA that will book them. If these girls are going to try and get by on their look then they’ve already limited their shelf life because nobody is trying to see a 35 year old female in a Budweiser bikini train wrecking DeadMau5 Harlem Shake Mash Ups, fuck outta here, B. I need to shower to get this article off of me. GOODNIGHT!
It was an incredible journey but it’s finally come to an end. Thanks to everybody that took the time to vote and share all the March Sadness posts. This year response was huge over 2k votes were casted. We had blowouts, upsets, and matches that were decided by a single vote. This is the last year we’ll be doing March Sadness so in a way it’s actually a little sad knowing this is the end. Yesterdays matchup was fun to watch as far as voting goes. March Sadness has taught me that anyone can win in any given match and thats why it comes down to the people. With that said,
Is this real life? My #1 and #2 favorite podcasters in one podcast? Yessir! Bill Burr went on Joe Rogans podcast for 3 hours and when you finish listening, you’ll think it was 20 minutes. I don’t want to spoil it for you because Bill tells a wild story about this creeper on his flight along with the usual Bill Burr “wisdom” because you know, he overheard it at a bar.
Guys. Go outside today. Don’t make me beg you. If you’re posted up in the DMV with us, it’s gonna be upwards of 60 Degrees Farenheit today and I strongly urge you to abandon all obligations and hit the streets for some springtime shenanigans. Go run through a sprinkler. Pet your neighbor’s dog. Let your pale winter legs out to get a little sun.

Without a doubt one of the most exciting and closest round in March Sadness history. The defending champ Ashley, went down being upset by Aleashia who is going to the final four. Brittany took care of Aspen in a hard fought battle and Amy easily advanced to her second final four. Best match of round 2 had to go to Ash VS Sam. There was about 5 lead changes throughout the day when we checked the voting results. When it was all said and done at 11:59PM, Ash sealed it by 1 VOTE.
FINAL FOUR SCHEDULE
We decided to move things ahead by having the final four match ups on Monday with the Championship on Tuesday. We will have a March Sadness Champion announced on Wednesday.
(Insert a Trap drop here) Bet all you ridaz are just gettin back in the mix from WMC (hood rich) while going on a 6-72 hour out of body experience where you could taste colors and thumb wrestle the Trix Rabbit. This style post is for both Trap music heads who actually go out to shows and blast 808′s out of their Acura Vigor and for the ones who just started listening. REAL TRAP MUSIC HEADS. You know your Trap. You’re not some degenerate bandwagon rider who just jumped on because dubstep died. You’ve been here since Day 1, we’re talking the Flosstradamus years, and before Baauer dropped Harlem Shake (so last month). For those of you who just started listening to Trap music, here is a quick history lesson that goes back to the roots where the genre came from. ─╤╦︻
︻╦╤─Taylor Swift paved the way for Trap DJ’s─╤╦︻
The Orgin: Trap music was created in 2012 by Josh Young & Curt Cameruci by remixing “Original Don” The rest is history! LoL ─╤╦︻ pew pew─╤╦︻
Now that we updated the newcomers as to how it all started, we can begin our fashion tutorial to get everybody up to speed on how to Turn up!™.

Good, here’s what you gotta wear. ─╤╦︻

You can’t leave the house without your shirt matching your shorts no matter what season it is!! TURN UP SHORTS *Required We inquired with Luis Vuitton and Jordan but neither of them have a shoe out with Turn up flames on them or anyone in their office who can return phone calls so we had our own custom Turn up™ shoes made by a kind Korean lady who runs a shoe kiosk in the middle of Lakeforest Mall. Nothing but the best for the Real Trap Runners. ─╤╦︻ ─╤╦︻ ─╤╦︻

Oh, hey yawl. Stoop here with your weekly installment of Mixtape Monday. Today I’ve got Bok Bok‘s latest mix for the Fade To Mind camp and it’ll be an awesome soundtrack to your life once March Sadness kicks back up later this week. Heavy bass, sexy vocals, and freaky future sounds will easily counteract all the ratchetness of those nasty brawds.
If you’re not in the know yet, Bok Bok is a part of the Night Slugs/Fade To Mind collective with artists like Kingdom, L-Vis 1990, Mike Q, Nguzunguzu, and the like. They’re on some future club tip which is actually pretty dope. These guys aren’t following the leader in the studio – they’ve created a totally unique sound that you can really only hear when you’re fuckin’ with their crew. Here, Bok Bok demonstrates the most up-to-date cross-section of the very best of Fade To Mind and Night Slugs music. Something totally different from the standard big room bangers that are rockin’ off today. Enjoy!
