New Music Wednesday

This is not a recurring feature, but wouldn't it be cool if it was:

I just found, thru Stereogum, a new music website called thesixtyone. New music streamed and/or downloadable and/or purchasable from Amazon. It's very cool, and I like it from the get go. Nothing is going to supplant Accuradio for me, but thesixtyone is still pretty cool.

Also, if you love remixes like I do, and I know you don't cause like Eminem says, "Nobody listens to techno" Czech out this new project between Stereogum and the RAC - that's a really cool Portuguese artist's project the Remix Artist Collective.

Laid Back

I had a great weekend on Lake Sinclair with the Harden clan. Only a little time in the sun, but that's probably for the best with a week in Tybee only a week away. They had a great band called "Reunion" who played all sorts of Van Morrison, Tams, Swinging Medallions, etc. It was a ton of fun. And I just got a new lens for my camera, which I'm still not 100% on, but happy accidents did happen.

Dangerous Minds

I found this video on a website called "The Art of Manliness" and while I don't always agree with them, I loved this guy. So I explored further. If you want to spend some worthwhile time on the interweb go to TED. This is a huge project with speakers on all sorts of subjects, but the viewpoints and information and sheer brain busting intellect is so cool.

But here's the one I watched last night:

Feelin' Good

The Peachtree Road Race is on Friday. It's only a 10k, but I want to do well, and try to continually improve my time. So, I did the tough hill workout that is conveniently located by office on Cleveland Rd yesterday.

Today I got up and ran with a new running buddy. It's one of the first times someone has actually looked to me for real advice. I hope my advice and encouragement work and are taken well. I love running so much, and want to share it with everybody. But I worry that I'm a little over the top sometimes. Who, me?? Over the top, really?? Really.

The weather was perfect this morning, I didn't have a late night last night. And an old woman slowed down in her car when we were on a side street and starting saying, "Looking good. Nice form" It was kind of unexpected but we both laughed and thought it was pretty funny.

End result is that today was an excellent day from start to finish. Feelin' Good.
