Well it’s time for the weekend. Finally, right? Can I get a high-five?
What you doing this weekend? Looks like more snow here, so my riding will be relegated to The Tank. BUT, if that good lard’s a-willin’ and the creeks don’t rise, Tuck and I will be driving out the route for April 3rd Super Awesome NO-FRILLS Bike Ride for Breast Cancer!
Keep an eye out for an update for a start location and route if all goes well!
I’m so excited for the ride. No idea how many will show up. But even it’s just a handful of people, it’ll be great and, of course, SUPER AWESOME! Haha!
Okay… got a little Friday mixtape for you today. Kept it old school, just built a nice collection of songs in the order I’d like to hear them. No “mixing”, no necessity for gapless play (though, I recommend it anyway because, well, those 2 sec gap things are just stupid).
This one was inspired by so many things. Matt obsessing over Rural Alberta Advantage, gud giving us a Tom Waits New Orleans song down in the Society, catching Velvet Underground in a movie the other night, or like when Colin Meloy was having his mind blown by Besnard Lakes. Just little things like that, “Ghost”, of course, appears due to the photo at the top of this post, plus our discussion of The Greatest Song Trilogy Of All Time, & my desire to have the lyric tattooed on my arm ASAP.
So yeah, it’s the little things that seemed to hook onto me, latching to my brain. Feels good, feels right. And after all this #musicblogocide2k10 madness going, I wanted to end this week on a good note. So, I’ll shut up and let’s just get to it.
Have a wonderful weekend, bundle up, and keep riding! Oh, and by the way, got a “special valentine’s day” treat for you this weekend, well, maybe more of an anti-valentine’s day treat, by way of our good friend Neil. Keep an eye out, should be ready by Sunday!!! Okay, let’s do this as…
