Bummmmmmer. Volunteering for Northern Spark every June was something I really loved doing for a lotta years and I so cherish the resulting collection of ugly, ugly T-shirts.

Dear friends, we have some important news. After 15 years and 851 projects, we have made the difficult decision to sunset Northern We are not in a fiscal or leadership crisis, but the current economy prevents us from fulfilling our mission and vision with integrity. We are so grateful to everyone that has been part of our work over the years.

Sometimes you encounter a series of words and are like "does ANYBODY need this?" but you buy and try anyway because you BELIEVE in PepsiCo's Frito-Lay company and if anybody's gonna innovate in the ranch arena, it's the original Cool Ranch ranchers.

So these had more vinegar or something? They were fine. I'm sure I'll never seen them again.

Great times with KFAI Vinyl Voices at Dusty's! Today I went back to my albums and packed a crate of "I can't believe I still own - or ever owned - this stuff" instead of my usual batch of 12" singles. (There were still some 12" singles.) After starting with my recent trend of going fully pop, somehow Miguel and I settled into a battle of smooth yacht rock sets, which is not where I thought the night would go and was definitely all in the crate. We ended up with a pretty nice size crowd, some of whom tried to line dance to everything for some reason, a couple very enthusiastic folks who knew all the words, and overall a very open-minded crew of generous tippers - I can afford another Harry Styles album maybe! We traded off with half hour sets and then lingered on pretty far after 1. Sorry, as usual I only wrote down my spins but here they are..

Beastie Boys - Shake Your Rump
Cover Girls - Show Me (Florida Mix)
