New Tunes

here are two new CDs I got for Christmas! The Jefferson Starship CD I had on vinyl many years ago and the barefoot man CD is a new release.
I listened to the barefoot man CD once and enjoyed it but I want to listen to it again to give it a good review!

dig these cracy tunes

First up music review
I first heard about Afro Bop Alliance reviewed on youtube and a small sample was played and I liked what I heard so I wrote down the name of the Band and searched for it on the library wedsite and they had it!
Afro Bop Alliance is jazz with a Latin flavor. There are tracks to sit down and relax after a busy day and others that will get you dancing.

Next up is Life is a Dance. its my latest mix filled with world music oldies, dance grooves and a sprinkle of country!

I had a good year on the beach and most of my regular patrons returned and so did most of my regular coworkers.
This has been the year of renovations.
My kitchen and upstairs bathroom were redone and just when I thought the end was near I discover if leak it my den ceiling. Go effing figure!
BHS is getting a new gym and construction will start soon.

The DJ biz went well except for a brief setback that is now resolved. Thank you God, Chip and Amazon. In that order too!

In Early November my sisters dog Bayou crossed the rainbow bridge and soon after that My friend Joan Sherman was given that much longer to live.She entered the gates of heaven last week.

Dec Thoughts and Ideas

 So Far this years Christmas mix is getting nice reviews! I have enough music to make a new mix but I want to focus on Getting my Christmas mixes out first.
 today was the first snow of the season. luckily it was a light snow but it was enough for me to postpone a trip to the post office to mail out Christmas mixes for the cousins.
Perhaps by the end of the week.
   I dare not say tomorrow because we are supposed to get heavy winds and rain. There's also a chance of coastal flooding.
   In my hurry to get out to clear the car of snow I forgot the bag of CDs I need to take back to the library!
 I didn't however get to work safe and sound and yes on time. Frank informed me that my friend Joan Sherman isn't expected to live much longer and they reserves the firehouse for her wake and he offered to take me there. We were discussing life, death and the fact that we are saved and we know where we are going. I sometimes call him Reverend because he has so much faith and knowledge and is a real man of God and lifts he up and encourages me! He's my big brother and I adopted him in my heart! I call chip my younger brother.
I am blessed with many awesome friends!

a nice weekend

OK weatherwise it stunk but that didn't ruin it for me.
Friday at work the Kids were Making Ornaments for our Giving Tree!
I volunteered to take pictures.
One of my coworkers asked me are and a photographer and a DJ?
I answered Yes I am!
Today I deejayed at the Santa Breakfast at the Bay Head firehouse. It felt good to be behind the deck again! after the technical failure at the firemans dinners I though I was done!
I was a few kids doing some boppin around. That made me feel good.
 The adults just want to socialide but as Bryan Adams would say the Kids wanna Rock!
     As Things were winding down I saw many of the kids breaking down tables ,Folding chairs and sweeping! That' Rocks!

Furgession and todays protest Rant

OK folks here's a rant!
OK so Michael Brow holds up a convenience store runs out and assaults a police officer. Eo defend himself He must use force and use his gun and the suspect dies.
So there's a trial saying the officer is not guilty and people go ape s--t and start riots, looting and nation wide protests.
during all this B.S Our President does NOTHING  to stop this! NOTHING!
 OK so disrupting traffic and looting are sending a message and making a difference??You want to make a difference?
Go spend time with your kids and help them with their home work and teach them right from wrong!
  Spend time and your kids and listen to what they have to say!
   Michael Brown was a murderer and a thief.
Wake up people and get your Priorities straight!
When you call 911 for anything who are the first people to show up?
I know many friends who are in law enforcement and I admire and respect what they do! They get up each day to serve and protect!

oh man!

I have DJing for 15 years, 7 years on my own.
Lat night I was playing at the BHFD annual dinner and 10 minutes into the gig my power supply cord decides to crap out on me.
At first we thought it was the circuit breaker but the speaker and disco balls were working but it turns out to be the cord..
I was bummed. I felt like such a failure.
I was able to stay and join my friends for dinner and there was a duet there who I'm sure enjoyed the extra time. Chip kept assuring me I was ok.
I hope to get a new power cord this week.
   The good news is I have mailed out 10 Christmas mixes and hope to mail out more this week!

a bast from the past Christmas mix

  I was digging through my entertainment center for Christmas music and came across this. I think this was the year I started interacting online and discovered a few mixtrade groups. The International mixtrade project being among them. Mixtrade friends have come and gone since them but this holds fond memories. I might revive a few tracks to introduce my current mix trade friends to them!

My exploration and education in world music continues

 If you have a curiosity about Latin music and world music in General this is a great CD to pick up.
 a Great addition on my Putumayo collection!

Pics of the day

 Today it was a tad chilly but its fall so I went to Mueller's Bakery and got a large coffee and a blueberry Muffin

I'm not a big fan of cold weathers but it does provide beautiful things to take pictures of like this tree changing colors before it drops its leaves!
