TSURURADIO Presents… Do The Shuffle (50 Seriously Random Songs)

Photography by Alejandra

Big weekend, my friends, big weekend… Tonight! CNote Art Show!

You gonna come by and see some art and buy some art and say, “Allooooo”?

Right behind, Midpoint Music Festival down in Cincinnati Saturday…

Ready to get my “fest” on! WOOT WOOT! Even got an invite to a party! Hell, people at work don’t even invite me to parties.

Then Sunday…… Two new photo shoots at my warehouse studio!

All the while prepping for Craftin’ Outlaws!

Baby & I doing the show, I’m also doing the music! Displays to build, playlists to build, prints to, uh, print.

Seriously big, seriously fun, seriously random weekend deserves a seriously big, seriously fun, seriously random mixtape, eh?


Old game, something I rarely ever “played”, push shuffle/random on your mp3 player of choice, and list out the songs that come up. Boop, boop, boop. Did that. 20 songs, 30, stop? Nah, 35, 40, can we make it to, yep, to 50, done!

Did I cheat for cool points? Nope, but I did skip over a band if it was already on the list — my iPod seems to really like Heartless Bastards for some reason, makes you wonder how “random” the randomness is? Can I drop a few bucks at Apples door step and my songs happen to show up most on shuffle?

I’ll keep it real, I’ll keep it honest for you, keep it random, no conspiracies here. That’s “random”, not randonneuring, which I want to do too. Not today, tired legs, sleepy head, feeling too random, not randon, gonna keep it that way today. But, I’ll ride home, 20 to 30 miles? 50? Don’t know, going to keep it random, keep it randon?

Seriously random.

Have a great weekend, have a big weekend, but no matter what, just have a weekend.

    Nr 14 is not Taken By Trees, she doesn't sing in Swedish. It sounds a lot like Anna Järvinen though :)
