There was a bit of a struggle with what to cook up next… I haven’t really gotten the live music bug out of my system yet as the following hyperlink suggests. Feel free to click on it and check out this mighty comp that I shared with my man Ronnie over at the Psychedelic Lion but before you do, remember that I did promise y’all more AntiDivas. Now this one has been lodged in my brain for quite some time, so please allow me to express myself for a bit here. It’s been an awful long time since I had a blues fix, so for your enjoyment…
Now as most of you know, the Blues as we know it is the culmination of a lot of different feelings, so it’s here that I plan to present all of them. The introspeak is presented by Minnie Riperton. Therein was the “conflict” which I rectified, because as much as I enjoyed doing the guest post for Ronnie, I still had a couple more joints that I wanted to add to those mixes, so listen for them in this mix…

Thanks once again to the Psychedelic Lion family for the love. Be sure to drop by and check out my guest post. And since I haven’t done too many shoutouts lately, let me say hello to my friends at ShoMerde.com and La Colmena de Humo. Feel free to fall by their spots too… Well, that’s almost it. For something totally related yet completely different, I left yet another AntiDivas special mix at my other spot for you…click on the image below.
Time now for another round of midterms, which means three weeks of cramming. I’ll be back soon so until then, have fun(k) and as always, please be safe.
Peace and blessings.
