Wowowow. What a weekend. As many people are forgetting their resolutions of last month, I have decided to make some. The first and foremost being to stop working after hours and on weekends. Clearly, wanting to write about music is what I would love to spend my days doing, but I “moonlight” from 7:30am-10:30pm at an advertising agency. One thing you hear often in this line of work, is if you don’t show up on Saturday, don’t bother coming in on Monday. Blinded by the sexy suits (thanks for nothing Mad Men) and plagued with the ability to sell sunshine to Florida, I know this is my wheelhouse.
But my new resolution is one I plan to keep. This weekend I went to a bingo night at a club. It is exactly what you think it is, a night club that takes 10 minutes out of the dancing and boozing to play bingo, which is run by lingerie clad ball turners. Followed by more dancing, lounging, a very cold sit on the beach. And that was just 4 hours of what used to be a very work-riddled Saturday night. Sometimes you need to take a moment and live in it. You plan and work and make lists, and sleep, and eat, and shower, and then do it all over again. I got caught in it too.
So, if you are still wondering what you should do this year to make it better (or hey, plan ahead for Lent, whatever you’re in to) then do this with me. Take a break.
And then listen to this tune. Star Slinger, killing it this past year with a many a tune to listen to, is a producer from Manchester, England. He always seems to be able to integrate a strong percussion to each of his remixed songs. Adding in a fresh synth and a tone gives this track the energy you need to do nothing you need to do and everything you don’t.
Enjoy the time we got.
