My next pick here is gonna make one person a bit embarassed and maybe he may feel a need to "spank" me for doing it, but I don't care. I will not diminish the work and art you have shared and created just cause you think others deserve recognition more. My pick is RobFrostwalker, Formerly known as RobPathfinder. A true Showman, Dj, Leader and inspiration to me and many many others.
Rob is someone who has from the very beginning shown me what true SHOWMANSHIP is all about. I met him close to the time I first began with his wife, "Pandora" now named Ariel Frostwalker.
His "Events" were to say the Least, HUGE and Spectacular. Modest to a fault, he created and built rooms that frankly astounded me. And his LOVE of Heavy Metal music was so obvious. This was also obvious of his wife, the amazing woman named DJ PhrryaElysium. He met her as SexMetalBarbie, and theirs is a marriage made in METAL HEAVEN as it were. Ariel is his inpiration for all he does. That is very obvious in everything he says when he mixes or builds a room. IT is always with her in mind. She is simply His Queen, even others call her "Queenie" and a well deserved Title it is. And he is persistant about his Metal music, so much so that he kept playing all kinds of Metal music until I found some I truly liked! (Before him I kinda hated it) *gasps* I know right? For some reason what I heard to that point I really didn't care for but with his continued "education" of my ears and music history in specifics, I learned to be what he calls "A Metal Head" *grins*
I could go on and on and on about Rob, his abilities, his gifts, generosity and love of his Ohana. I have been fortunate along with my husband, JasonWilde, to be counted as Rob's Family.
But let me assure you ALL, his being put here? Has ZERO to do with his personal tie with me as family, friend or loved one.
HE HAS EARNED THIS ON HIS OWN COMPLETELY!!!
His events had well over a hundred in attendance. He showcased and encouraged dozens of DJ's and Room Hosts to be part of his EVENT Series. He took a lot of flack for them but truly, He showed a great way to build the 3DX community which few others have come close to doing. He is a leader first and foremost.
He doesn't just "Talk the talk" HE WALKS THE WALK through example.
He built me a room "Wet n Wild" and gave me the initial tools to begin to Dj and then pushed, nudged, spanked and invited to set a date to begin and OPEN the club he made, and not only that it was for me, just for me to DJ in, and he pushed me and made SURE I set a date and followed through.
Yeah he was insistant. He was not going to let me lapse into fear and not develop what he felt was real talent.
Thing is? HE HAS DONE THIS FOR MANY! Any time he sees talent in music OR building He does all he can to help that person learn and shine!
That is just who he is ... a warm, generous, *Hard ass* so he says, man. To me, he is Mentor, friend and a determined Leader who will push himself relentlessly to do what he feels is right to do. Uncompromising in his honesty. He says it like he sees it.
So to you Rob, I Salute you, my Pick of some of the Best of the Best out there.
KUDOS to you and Rob" Deal with it" I give this tribute to a truly deserving individual, YOU!
