Well my friends, it’s time for baby and I to once again head south to Canada’s winter home, the home of my birth, Flo-Ride-Duh. Should be fun & good times, first to see my family, then her’s (they are snowbirds, you see, two birds, one stone), then the plan is do a little kitschy day date at Disney World, whee! Baby’s never been, and granted the last time I went it looked a little, uh, not so taken care of (seriously, a few tiles were missing in the ceiling of It’s A Small World, not all the lights were working on the Electric Light Parade) and yeah, it’s a bit dated, but two oddball adults in love running around in a giant pop culture theme park??? Fuck yeah!
Now, what does any of that mean to you? Well, it means very little posting until we get back on Wednesday. I’ll try to get a little sumfin up during my down time (I am an early riser, even on vacation), but no promises. But DON’T FRET! I’m not going to leave you empty handed! Never!!! You can count on your boy, Tsuru!
So today, I built a little mixtape for ya, inspired by my love of Dan Deacon’s “Snookered”, a song I literally can’t listen to enough. Mmm.. Anyways, starting there, I started pulling songs and building what I think is a pretty sweet little collection of mostly new loves, “Snookered” ended up being the centerpiece, literally (it just doesn’t work as a leadoff, as much as I tried).
I hope you enjoy, I hope it’s a good journey for you, that maybe a few enemies become friends, a few friends become enemies, but in the end we will know that we are all better for the experience… Do I expect lives to be saved? Yes, but not in a tangible sense, more in that a tiny fork in the road will come up during one of the tracks, and you were going to veer right, but instead, at the last second, you veer left, it’s subtle, but the new path is chosen, and 45 years from now you’ll realize how your life could’ve been so different.
You’ll just cherry pick a few “hawt” songs, ignore this post, and the mixtape in general, and pretend like the whole “TSURURADIO thing” never happened…. but it did, my friend, it did. I’ve got the scrap book to prove it! I just sprayed with Curious, so that seals it, bitch!
