Hiatus, (confused shrug), and the mix for 5-19-17

Well folks, first things first. This is the last regular Friday of work for me until September. There will be a couple random posts over the summer I am sure, but the hiatus starts tomorrow.

Other news: The MS Ride went well. Had perfect weather. Starting temp was 62F with clear skies and no wind to speak of. I rode with my friend Kate. She was better prepared to ride than I was and hauled me along for the 45 mile route (I was really only prepared for 30 miles but with good weather and good company, much is possible). Here we are at about the 36 mile mark. Locals will know exactly where we are.

36 miles MS RIDE

Kate and I at about the 36 mile mark of the 2017 MS Ride.

Love it or hate it: No idea how I got to this mix. I had three playlists that wouldn’t gel and so I mashed them together and started cutting. I think I got hung up on “Good Beat” but I don’t really know. Anyway, it’s 90s dance radio time! Yes, I know, there is no album info. That’s an error on my part but I’m not going back to fix it now.

Roland, Warning, and the mix for 5-6-16

Go ahead and congratulate yourself. You’ve come to the final post in the Audience Participation Series! For the curious sort, there were nine entries in the series. Thank you to everyone who chimed in with an idea. I appreciate your responses which allow this to be more than just a monolog every week.

What you have below is one of the most challenging mixes I’ve pulled together from a suggestion, which was “If you can base a mix around Warren Zevon’s ‘Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner’, I’d be impressed”. Well Jim, here you go.

I’m going to say it now before I forget: My summer hours kick in at the end of May, which means the blog will go from reliable weekly updates into an informal “post if/when I feel like it” hiatus in three weeks. Last summer I think I posted once a month but I promise nothing!
