It’s nice to know that you all like the new look, judging from the comments on the last post. Frankly, I don’t like it all that much, but just the same, this will probably be the way things will look from now on. Oh, except the header… watch the colours change depending on my mood each time I drop in.
I have lotsa news (and mixes) to lay on you. Before I begin, let me state for the record that I didn’t forget about the recent milestones that have taken place over the last week or so.
First and foremost, I will shed a tear for the mighty Les Paul…
I also want to send a shoutout to the good folks who run mine and Leslie’s favourite spots in Rehoboth, Superkind and Sunshine Octopus. Whenever you’re in town, be sure to look ‘em up for all your hippie type needs… 🙂 There’s a special mix up over at Fufu Stew Too related to such things. Check it out! Don’t worry, I have a reminder at the end of this post so please read on.
Segue into… Next, what about Woodstock… Some 40 years later, but it kinda feels like yesterday. I did fail to do some type of tribute for the occasion, I know. Damn near everybody else did, so I figured what could I really do that hasn’t already been done. Well, in looking at the statistics, I noticed a lot of you were directed to a post I did last summer. Then I notice that I killed the link. Dumb move! Let me rectify that now.

and now for the closing commentary…
Notice that there’s lotsa *NEW* icons are now over in the even longer blogroll? I’ve been lacking in the maintenance of it, but that will also be rectified real soon. I’m still getting regular visits from the “health department”, so I have to pick and choose my spots. The floors have to be “white glove clean”, and my equipment must be in good working order before I feel comfortable enough to proceed, so thanks to all of you who continue to be so patient while I get my shit together. The target date for completion of the deconstruction will hopefully be sometime before October. That is indeed tentative, but I will still be cooking away from time to time. I just added two classic mixes over on the Second Helpings page.
In addition, I am still in the middle of a very personal research paper this term. A huge project to say the very least, but if I get an A on it, I will consider it a labour of love.
Don’t forget that on the 27th, I will be making a rare live appearance at the Windup Space. If you’re close to Baltimore, please drop by and say hello. Besides, you can’t beat the cover charge… This post here has all the particulars. I’m gathering up my hottest of white hot 45s for this special occasion, so I can assure you that it will be a stone gass, kiddies!
For now, it’s back to the books. Until the next time we meet, have fun(k) and as always, please be safe.
Peace and blessings.
