​ Mix in the Making #5

This is homework for May. It’s a long list and if I add anymore to it you won’t be able to choose. If you are doing an encore it might be easier, but I would guess someone wouldn’t use this list exclusively except for myself. Even when I am mixing from a list like this I make some impulse buys and tracks are released on the day I decided to buy and I can’t resist the freshest track sound to go along with the rest. The only section to check back on this post is the mixes section which I will be optionally updating until the next ‘Mix in the Making’. Thanks for reading and it’s exciting to share that this summer will be jam packed with way too much good music for everyone to remember it by and enough to save some to find for another year.

Update (End of March, ’18)

New ‘Mix in the Making’ will be posted in a week or so… It’s already nearly thirty tracks long with choices for a mix to complete by May 1st. I’m keeping the new album section for now and will be updating a new section like I sort of had before with mixes I have listened to and pass on to you.

Side note: Most of the stuff I approve to post isn’t normally excessively explicit unless that is what I think is needed at the time. In general I think people swear too much. Any words one uses over and over makes them loose their sting, meaning or seriousness. I guess I am guilty of this sometimes because society is numb to certain concepts. There was a song with J.Lauryn singing that sounded like she was swearing, but it was listed in the lyrics as ‘He knows how to fun me like that’. This is not proper grammar, but that is a lyrical license songwriters have to break different rules to make new meaning that isn’t tired.

Also, Ckwal’s only album is not going to iTunes in April as I updated in several posts.

Commitment to Veganism

Recently I just passed the 18 month anniversary on the journey towards being a Vegan. Yea, with my new definition it’s tough to believe anyone has achieved such a goal. To celebrate I have continued my diversion into the art of forever altering one’s appearance. Skin art number two, is a series of five symbols in Chinese possibly originating from an artist signed ‘js’. The phrase called out to me on the internet along with this track by Julian Calor on Musical Freedom. The symbols translate as said on the site as, “chinese symbol for vegan”. There are several definitions and ways to add meaning to this; I will try to explain that later in person if we get the chance. Caution: This website (no longer active) on some browsers will say ‘Danger’ or ‘Deceptive site ahead’. Partial photo in May of 2018’s Update. The most recent milestone is one of never turning back. It used to not bother me when seeing or smelling all the options of food I used to eat, but now it hurts differently. In my journey which is now at trying to be cruelty-free in everything, I found Rit Dyes is a good option for making clothes from the basic beginning. I will update when I find out more options (asking companies by email), but I knew this for a little while that almost everything on me or us may or may not have been tested on animals (at least if it was dyed) even if it was animal product free, so I knew I was behind my thinking process. If there are any new readers out there, you can catch up with the important info at this compilation page. It is also a quick link on the right sidebar. Again if you can’t go on with this information and need a place to start, by all means dive right in the deep end. I started at what I thought was vegan which is further along than vegetarian because I knew it would be too easy to fall back. This tattoo by Church Hill translates in layman’s terms on google as ‘absolutely vegetarian’ and without going into all the possible definitions, I’d say that is fair.
