Okay, before we begin, just a tiny tiny follow up to our iPad-related post the other day:
Okay, movin’ on. Were was we about to begin? Oh yeah, hot digitty! AdventurerNeil’s first post already went up while I slept? I LOVE it when that happens!!! Wonderful post Neil, it really was great to have you up, hang out with you, and battle those ridiculous wind to save a few boobies!
Alright, it’s Thursday and MIXTAPES WEEK is still in full-steam-ahead mode!!! Today’s mixtape comes with a tiny little story. You see, though I’m not the most anonymous blogger in the blogging universe, at work, except the people who are my outside-of-work friends, the TSURUNATION Celebration & Jubilation Actuation does not exist. Well, I’ve been outed.
Got an email the other day that basically went like this, “I just figured it out. YOU are Tsurrrrrrrrrrradddio guy!” haha! Love it. I wondered when & if someone would put the two things together. Well, it turns out, not only is my new friend DanaMonstah a music lover (and TSURURADIO fan, woot!), but she has a music blog of her own chock full of mixtapes!!
Well, it’s MIXTAPES WEEK, I told DanaMonstah, how about I share one over at TSURURADIO? She said she do me one better and made a brand-spanking new one for us today, appropriately called For TSRU, 4u!
First off… Adorable album art!!! I just want to keep him in my pocket and play with him in lines & in meetings! But, album art aside, what a sweet mixtape this is. It’s actually a bit more dancey than what I normally listen too, making for a sweet & super infectious groove for a rainy Thursday that needs all the super infectuous groovin’ it can get!!!
I think I said it yesterday, but on man, I’m LOVING MIXTAPES WEEK!!! So many new tunes, so many new genres, so many new, uh, just everything!!! I love it! So without further adieu let’s get our next one a-playin! Thank you so much DanaMonstah! Make sure you head on over to her site and show her some proper love, okay? But first, push play and get ready to shake what the good lard a-gave ya!!!
