Burlington, Vermont author M.K. Thompson is a DJ (known as Fattie B). His first book, 'I Was A 400-pound '80s DJ' is a hilarious collection of true short stories of his time behind the decks in a small town dance club. 'I Was A 400 Pound 80's DJ' is not a book about how cool it is to be a DJ. Rather, it is a collection of short tales shared through a life-long connection with 80's music that boldly bounce from surreal to silly (all while setting the record straight on proper patron-to-DJ etiquette). While most believe a DJ's life is all 'hands in the air' and V.I.P. parties, this book is here to show the underbelly and the reality of its ugly truth. As the resident DJ of a weekly 80's dance party in Burlington for the last 17 years, Fattie B has seen and heard just about everything. Each chapter of this book begins with a few lyrics from an 80's song, followed by a short story about an experience that relates to each songs' message. As a rapper in a touring band and a DJ for over 20 years, Fattie shared the stage with such talents as: The Roots, Kool & The Gang, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Eyed Peas, The Wailers, Morris Day & The Time, Maceo Parker, Busta Rhymes, KRS-One, DJ Z-Trip, Slick Rick, Africa Bambaata, The Pharcyde, Jurassic 5, Common, Big Daddy Kane, Talib Kweli, DJ Questlove, DJ Rob Swift and DJ Revolution.
