Is that a zmobie? No, it's an opai!
hello. my name is opai, and I.. am a dj.
i've been a dj on RKoL for around a year and a half now, and despite getting away for a few months earlier this year, i'm now back on it.
i try to cope with being a dj mainly by playing music, but also through talking and interaction with those around me.
sometimes, to fuel my addiction, i have to play music so bizarre and obscure that i don't think people really understand me.
one day, they will. one day all will bow before my aural might.
The Dead Air Show
while some might consider opai's show the flagship show of Radio KoL, it's actually not, which is a bit of a surprise.
i'd give a description of what you might hear but to be blunt, the show's all over the place. imagine something that combines old punk with modern electro, and fills in all the gaps with some sort of grey and orange-flavoured intelligent noise. And if that actually helped you, probably nothing else can.
yeah.. i'll write a proper show description soon... heh.
also, feel free to discuss or ask me about anything by clicking on the discussion tab at the top of this page. :)

i list the GMT times because i'm not foreign like most of the others.
Hmmm. I don't normally play requests so getting one played on my show isn't usually an easy task. If you do want to request something though, first make the request in the /radio channel to see if it's the type of thing I might play.
I'll warn you now though, I will never play any Queen or Pink Floyd, as I despise them. It's also pretty unlikely that you'll hear any 'classic rock', ska-punk, modern 'pop-punk', or anything made by a commercial band that apparently understands the misunderstood youth of a nation.
Fascinating Facts Fabout Fopai
i use alliteration even when it doesn't work
i don't capitalise sentences, only titles
there is no third fascinating fact
no, it's not real blood on my face. it is made from red (and blue) food colouring, brown sauce, and golden syrup.

What A Stupid Name. How Did It Originate?
the name 'opai' came from a typo of the last four letters of 'monofiopia'. yes, it bears a resemblance to a japanese word meaning something rude, but i had no idea of that at the time, honest. i was told about it about a week after signing up on KoL, and just hoped no one would realise.
Uh, What The Hell Is A 'monofiopia'?
'monofiopia' is a completely self-fabricated word. it has no meaning whatsoever, symbolises nothing, and can not be technically interpreted in any way. monofiopia is me.
ok, here's the deal... everywhere else on the internet and in real life, i am 'monofiopia' and have been for about six or seven years. monofiopia is, essentially, my 'stage' name - i use it on all music i make, i used it in bands i was in, and i use it on all non-KoL stuffs on t'internets. i used the four-lettered variation when i first signed up on KoL, and it never really occurred to me that it would matter. i kind of became well-known-ish in the game as opai (even though i had and still have a monofiopia account) and then later became a DJ as 'opai'.
and yes, it is kinda annoying that the one thing that the most people know me for, know me by a name i never normally use ;)
Where Else Do These monofiopias Lurk?
funny you should ask that, anonymous wiki questioner, as i have two whole currently-empty-but-work-in-progress websites for you to gawk at and listen to some of my 'amazing' music.
