Winter, “Other”, and the mix for 1-18-19

This winter has been unusual in Minnesota. It is a direct consequence of climate change (if you don’t agree with the first part of this sentence, this isn’t the webpage for you). I miss winter. Until this year I hadn’t fully realized how much winter is part of my identity and how much I enjoy being outside during the season. I think all of the self portraits that I’ve really liked have been taken in the winter.

I’ve started an “Other Works” page. Which is accessible via a little grey clickable box at the top right of the home page. If you are interested in other things I’ve don e(photography, poetry, etc) that is the place to look. New publications will be listed there if/when they happen. It’s a work in progress.

You get a twofer this week!
The first mix below is in danger of being buried by time. It was a splinter of the previous post that evolved into its own cul du sac of a mix. Didn’t get posted last week because I was out of the office.

The second mix happened very quickly. I had the beat in my veins and just sat down and started pulling tracks that had the groove.

Disapproval, Organ, and the mix for 12-21-18

I’ve had a head cold this week that has made me very foggy. I disapprove of this.

Looks like we are going to have a brown Christmas in much of Minnesota. I also disapprove of that.

Today is the Solstice and it has been heavily overcast. Gloom at its highest. Totally disapprove.

What I do approve of is good conversation. This week’s mix is based largely on songs and artists that came up in conversations I had with folks.

So you know, there will be a brief hiatus until the first Friday in January. That is when I am back in the office.

I bought this at a junk shop this week. It doubles the number of Christmas organ records on red vinyl I have. Local connection: Its on Soma Records, which was based in Minneapolis.

Seven, Two Acceptances, and the mix for 11-2-18

WordPress tells me that I first registered with the site seven years ago. That seems like too many years. I know, from rooting around in some file folders on the mixing computer, that I’ve posted roughly 150 mixes. So maybe that is right. Who am I to argue with time and the perception thereof?

Good news, everyone! I’ve had a poem published at Moonchild Magazine that mixes music and poetry. And if that wasn’t fun enough, it was announced just today that I’ll be the featured visual artist for issue #2 of Kissing Dynamite! 13 of my photos will be in the issue. I am downright chuffed at these announcements!

Hooray for acceptances!

Before we reconvene next week there will be an election. Go vote. More than that, vote Democrat across the ticket. They don’t have to be perfect candidates, that isn’t a reasonable ask. Talk to your relatives and friends about their plans to get to the polls. Make your own plans to get to the polls if you haven’t voted early. Talk to your elderly neighbors that might need help getting to the polls and give them a ride if they are Democrats. Don’t help racists vote. Be responsible citizens and vote for the values that bring us together such as health care for people, voting rights, and human rights, not divide us in hate.

Earflaps, Bread, and the mix for 10-12-18

Very short on time to write and post this. You have been warned.

Best thing in my week? I fixed the earflaps on a cap I really like. Last winter I noticed that the wind would get in my ears unless the flaps were just right. Well, I put some supplemental material at the front of the flap and now its perfect. If there is something that better defines my aesthetic than altering a wool earflap hat, I don’t know what it is.

At about 2 AM this morning I woke up thinking that it’s pretty rich that Billy Joel is calling someone white bread in “Uptown Girl”. I don’t sleep right and my brain is strange.

This screenshot from “No Man’s Sky” sums up how I am feeling about everything right now.

Plummeting through space at incredible speed toward the black void of an unknown world.

I think the transitions in this mix are hot.

Nope, Hope, and the mix for 3-23-18

“Add More Dudes”. That is the graffiti I saw yesterday scratched in block letters into the hard plastic wall of a bathroom stall in my building. I’ve been thinking about what that could possibly mean and I don’t think there is any sense or meaning of it in which the only possible answer I could be other than “Nope”.

I’ve started training in earnest for this year’s MS Ride. There are new pains in my body this year in new places. This is an unwelcome development. It’s a reminder that I can’t give up on exercise for six months and hope to not ache. It’s a reminder that I am Middle Aged. I’m sure to post a fundraising link in the coming weeks but for now, you are spared the image of me in lyrca.

These next two to three weeks are some of the hardest of the year. Spring is in the air. You can smell it. The sun is sometimes warm on your cheeks. But Spring is not here yet, but hope is, and hope sometimes makes a fool of Minnesotans at the end of March. When Prince wrote “Sometimes It Snows in April” he wasn’t kidding. Sometimes, we feel so bad…
