winner 08.17.10  
i have listened to a lot of music over the last few days trying to judge the contest for the free room giveaway at the ace this sunday... i was introduced to a lot of new music, and while there were a few mixes that really stood out, we were forced to choose only 2.

thanks so much to everyone who made a playlist and participated in the contest!
WINNER #1 Lou:
In no particular order: 1. Outcast - Good Evening (Dream Big) 2. Camera Obscura - French Navy 3. Coconut Records - Microphone 4. Dick Dale - Taco Wagon 5. Hockey - Too Fake 6. Glass Candy - Beatific 7. Luscious Jackson - Life of Leisure 8. Rilo Kiley - The Money Maker 9. Pharrell & Snoop - That Girl 10. Mickey Avalon - My Dick

p.s. I forgot to mention that my playlist comes w/ 2 bonus tracks. 11. The Streets - Geezers Need Excitement 12. Tom Jones - She's a Lady And as if this playlist isn't already the shit. It also comes w/ 1 tequila shot... and maybe a taco : )

put mickey avalon - my dick on a playlist and you have my attention, add anything by the streets and i'm really listening close... throw in a shot and a taco and you are a winner! i laughed really hard at that lou. thanks for the playlist. please come and say hello on sunday, hopefully you'll have that taco and shot ready to go when i start at 10.

WINNER #1 dana salant:
below is an eclectic mix filled with soul & rhythm & funk - the perfect answer to any sunday afternoon...(ps 10 was tough) ! 1. the way you make me feel (michael jackson) 2. everybody wants to rule the world (tears for fears) 3. raspberry beret (prince) 4. respect (notorious b.i.g.) 5. here i am (all green) 6. double dutch bus (frankie smith) 7. get it together (jurassic 5) 8. i know what i know (paul simon) 9. can i kick it? (tribe called quest) 10. this is how we do it (montell jordan)

i can feel the energy from this mix just by reading the list! that is the sign of a good playlist (if you know the tunes that is!!) thanks dana! now, if you see a guy walking toward me with a taco and a shot will you please follow him to the dj booth so i can meet you too!?! i hope you'll both bring me a cd with your mix on it for the drive home.!

SONGS FOR JULY 2010 08.16.10  
(if you don't know about these lists it is something i have been doing most of my life for my friends, and i've been putting them up on the blog for awhile now... this is just music that i have been obsessively listening to over the past month) i usually try not to think about it too much and just throw it together but this one has been a real labor of love. there are some of my all time favorite songs ever on here, and some brand new discoveries that are haunting me in such a big way!




download?
mac = control click "download as"
pc = right click "save as" (i think...)
