The Last Word—Albert Lao

Albert Lao
Owner of Play by day, Bedroom DJ by night

What is your chief characteristic?
My rationality and humility

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
I’m blessed to have “flat tire” friends and “moving” friends—the loyal ones that will pick you up at two in the morning if you’re stranded with a flat and the ones that don’t suddenly make up plans to help you move on a Saturday afternoon.

Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
Hulk Hogan—he always would say, “Say your prayers, and eat your vitamins,” but he was a bad guy for awhile. Then he became good again, and he’s been doing it for a very long time. I think I could relate.

Who is your favorite heroine in fiction?
Mary Poppins—a spoonful of sugar and that bag—the bag was awesome. It’s all in the accessories.

What is the best thing you have ever won?
Two things, all this past year—I won “Best Nightclub DJ” of the year voted by the IN Weekly readers (thank you!) and I won a 32-inch flat screen TV at a golf tournament thrown by police officers. I’m glad I’m a law abiding citizen.

What did your mother always tell you?
To remember to always go to church

What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
Let’s just say that everybody goes through rough times and makes mistakes.

What is your favorite food?
The steak my mom makes and anything I can microwave in under two minutes or less.

What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
It’s a toss-up between Seagal’s “Under Siege 2: Dark Territory” or Van Damme’s “Hard Target” and/or “Bloodsport”—I’ll take either one.

What was your most embarrassing moment?
Sometimes when I DJ and the party is going, someone will trip over the power cord, knock the needle off the turntable, or trip a circuit and the music will stop;  whether or not it’s your fault, everyone’s suddenly looking at you like you just killed their grandmother.

What historical figure do you despise the most?
Judas Iscariot

What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
“Forensic Files,” “Full Throttle Saloon,” “Party Heat,” or anything on truTV because it’s “Not Reality. Actuality.” Ha, ha.

What is the last book you read?
“The Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell

What is your theme song?
“California Love” by 2Pac and Dr. Dre—California knows how to party.
