Soon July

This is an update to Soon June. The June events I listed will end tonight. I wonder if anyone went and saw a Ckwal ‘clone’. Nelly would be fun to party with in Vegas tonight, but I’m just dreaming about these events. I’ll scour the internet tonight after work to see if I can find pictures from these countdown to summer events. Besides that I haven’t had any thoughts about the virtual wedding. It is probably an incorrect term because I’m a traditional guy in that arena. I’m not optimistic about it as I’ll be turning 38 next month when I take a bus to Houston. So I’m still debating how to live up to the event and make a fun celebration and mix. So please try to have patience. It’s not even halfway through the year and Ariana Grande was already flicking us off (they took it down). She knows the lyrics to that popular country song ‘Marry Me’. Do you?

Update:
Mariah is going some exotic places before the end of the year.

Mid June Update

I typically haven’t been moved to move on a move with so much time ahead of the trip. It’s is proving to be challenging in many ways, but probably has it’s positive advantages. I’m thinking of putting together a mix before the end of this month. I did one this morning and it’s hodge-podge though I almost thought it was going to force me to post these tracks today, as the first section was melting together naturally. Then I tried to follow Ariana Grande with Michael Ray and it fell apart with a booing audience (metaphorically). Anyways these are mostly from Mix in the Making #5 which as of now is incomplete, in part because I used some of these already. I bought this vegan sunscreen which is pretty terrible. If it could be used as glue, like a few house tracks, then I would do that.

*Update 6/18/18 – I found the tracks I needed on the same page I made in March and one new track from a great album by Naux Faux discovered on Bassnectar’s Soundcloud page. I also updated and republished this update from May. It’s about my volunteer work I am on and off with in association with my commitment to a vegan lifestyle which is beyond what goes in and on our bodies.

I listened to this mix by Miss Monique. It is live at Radio Intense, so I am not positive if this is considered Mind Games Podcast anymore.

Extra Tracks for Mix in the Making #8

It’s possible to do two mixes with the combined tracks of the previous Mix in the Making post. Also, most of these posts have albums full of good choices for mixes. You may have noticed or will notice that I am making mixes based off these lists that borrow from each other. I guess that is because the tracks I’m feeling when I get to make them change as well as the spirit I’m trying to save. This period has been emotional and I am closing this list section now because it is a natural stopping point*. There is only one more Mix in the Making (#9) for the year and then I will be either mixing off these or doing something else until 2019. Right now my goal is to return to four mixes a month in 2019.
