Hey friendlies, here’s the link for my new year’s playlist. The first dozen are there to get you prepped. Then you go about 30 dancey songs deep before you get a breather (and some R. Kelly). Then it’s back to fist pumping, some nostalgia and lastly tradition.

We got some long ones here clocking in at 5, 6, 7 minutes. Sit back and let them brine for best results.

  • #4 - Hot Chip’s back, baby! With a nice little 7 minute exercise in crescendo.
  • #11 - I know, I know, another Blue Jeans remix. But seriously, this one gets at the meaning of the song and lets the lyrics shine the best.

I had no idea The Format had started a new band (fun.). Definitely a positive indicator for the economy. With music that upbeat, there’s no doubt they’re job creators.

 

This mix was a battle. A primordial soup waiting for a catalyst, and all it took was Tycho playing a song without words in Vegas and a Berman diamond in the rough to set it off and then it all fell in place.

 

I know it’s not even spring yet, but all I know is the next one is going to be 100% pure summer-picnic-beach-chill-untucked relaxation.

Mixtape: Goldilocks Planet (click here to download)

This was at the tail end of a NYT article this morning:

 

“Eventually though, Earth’s luck will run out. As the Sun ages it will get brighter, increasing the weathering and washing away of carbon dioxide. At the same time, as the interior of the Earth cools, volcanic activity will gradually subside, cutting off the replenishing of the greenhouse gas.

 

A billion years from now there will not be enough carbon dioxide left to support photosynthesis, that is to say, the oxygen we breathe. And so much for us. Even Earth, wonderful and special as it is, will only have animal life for one billion years.”

 

So not only will you die someday and be buried in the ground, but also the Sun will eventually expand and turn the planet you’re buried on into a molten ball of rock.

 

Hey, fuggedaboutit! Have a great brunch!

Enjoy these with your preferred pumpkin medium (e.g., pie, beverage, bread, candle).

 

 

When it comes to pumpkin beers, these are absolutely delicious:

-          Wolaver’s Pumpkin ale

-          Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin ale

-          Dogfish Head Punkin brown ale

-          Cisco Pumple Drumkin ale

 

These are blasphemous:

-          Blue Point Pumpkin ale

-          Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin ale

-          Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin ale

-          Shipyard Pumpkinhead ale

-          Southern Tier Pumking

 

 

And be careful — pumpkin is known to be an incredibly strong aphrodisiac.

This is a big one. 21 songs. Starts with some pop & rock (1-6), goes electronic/remixey (7-9), back to some quick pop & rock (10-11), does some serious electronic for a while (12-17), and then finishes with a schizophrenic episode of candy pop to R&B to atmosphere rock to a 1:39 audio rip from the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trailer.
