Blank

So I had an iTunes nightmare Friday night which ended up in me losing all my playlist, client work and DJ selections. Everything I do is based on my organization so the magnitude of this fail is so ridiculous that I’ve found it hard to even have an emotion about it. Instead I’ve been up for the last 48 hours re-doing all the work due in the next few days and pretty much rebuilding my work life. I haven’t had much time to think about it because the consequences of not bouncing back immediately don’t allow it but I’m realizing that this is how all problems should be dealt with – objectively. I could sit here, cry about it, look up to the sky and ask why me or I could void the unnecessary emotions and immediately get fixing the problem. I don’t know if it’s experience kicking in or what but I’m digging this new reaction, it feels kinda like that picture up there – blank.

You ever see Roger Federer lose a point? You ever see him win one? The reaction or lack thereof is pretty much streamlined no matter the outcome. I was always fascinated by that nuance and now I think I’ve really starting to understand it. Win or lose a point, 40-love or love-40, the ONLY objective is to win the next one. When you think about it that way it’s hard to justify worrying about some things.

Anyways, I should be working right now but I couldn’t leave you guys hanging for another day so I had to take a break. I’ve been listening to nothing but world music for a hotel chain in China but this morning on my way to poison my body with more coffee I was playing the latest playlist from the ShaveUrLegz.com crew and it fit the mood perfectly so I thought to share, enjoy…

EMPT Presents – S U M M E R : a n t i – w i n t e r 2 c by Ryan Radler

I was in complete denial about summer ending till I went to the Caribbean this weekend and felt that amazing Cabarete beach weather – yeah summer is over. I’ve been traveling a lot my whole life, there’s something about waking up in different countries within a matter of days that does it for me. I’ll never take that for granted and music has made it possible so cheers to that.

I woke up this morning still feeling like an islander but regaining my New York State of Mind and the first thing I did was put on the new anti-winter tape. The weather in NYC is fantastic, it’s in that perfect limbo between hot and cold, it feels like change and this new tape compliments that to perfection. The opening sequence here is wonderful, Trophy Wife to Poolside’s blissful cover of Harvest Moon and then Fleetwood Mac and on and on, all I could do was lay in bed with a smile. Ryan has a knack for blending traditionally unrelated beautiful music in a way you’d be hard pressed to find anywhere else and I highly appreciate it.

We sparked a doobie at like 8 am on Sunday morning after our DJ set with the one of the executives behind the weekend long event. Long story short, he was telling us how his companies creative approach is to introduce people to art they’re not familiar with. He goes out of his way to fly in acts from around the world to give the Dominican audience something new and refreshing. I loved hearing that and listening to Ryans eclectic selection brings me right back to that moment. Life is full of endless possibilities, limitless offerings and  keeping an open mind to explore all of it makes ones experience that much richer. Anyways, press play in the latest installment of anti-winter, start your day off in style and expand those musical horizons, enjoy.
