Just For the Fun

Ray is probably going to have a heart attack. I won't go into why I haven't posted in a while. But let's just say it's becoming increasingly difficult. No need for details.

Anyways, I drove around at lunch today aimlessly. Well not soooo aimlessly I had ONE goal...

...and was forced to listen to the radio. Horrible. (They are still playing the as '95 remix of Everything But The Girl's track Missing by Todd Terry. Seriously guys? There has been NO other good dance music since '95? The song has it's own Wikipedia page!!! Proof people have nothing else better to do...).

Oh, why the radio? I'm stuck with a rental while my car is in the shop. Thank god for WVUM. They had a pretty good set going. This tune stuck out in particular. Not sure who was DJ'ing.

Cold Cut - Just For the Kick (ysi)

It's off of Ninja Tunes relatively recent (February) compilation You Don't Know. Fifth in their "Ninja Cuts" series (the label has been around for 18 years!!). And honestly like the title suggests, if you think you know what to expect from Ninja Tunes well this is set to prove you wrong. I think I just found my weekend playlist. 50 tracks on 3 CD's should keep me happy. Especially considering I am quarantined with severe bronchitis and walking pneumonia (even though right now it has progressed to sitting pneumonia and later on it will be couch potato pneumonia).

I'm on heavy duty antibiotics and what not, so if you haven't seen me out in while (you haven't - I friggin' missed Yelle last week and from what I heard a balls-to-the-wall crazy 2nd Saturday Wynwood Art Walk and you probaby won't see me this weekend either), you know where I am... Listening to Ninja Tunes' latest.

Head over to their site where they have a bunch of freebies up for grabs.
