Ry X | Bad Love | Song Of The Quarter | 4Q

September 23rd, 2017

tumblr_or0xdqtZB21w4motno1_540

[Verse 1]
Tell me all your little thoughts
Tie you up, not enough
Give me that bad love, bad love
Show me you’re a criminal
Bite it up till it talks
Give me that bad love, bad love

[Verse 2]
We could be high on feeling requisite
Under the thoughts, give me your love, give me your bones
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Verse 3]
Tell me you’re another girl
Heavy lust, heavy touch
Give me that bad love, bad love
We could have love on fire
I give it all up for bad love

[Chorus 1]
I’ll be your warmth here
I’ll be your back
I put you in the corner when you open up
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Chorus 2]
I’ll be your warmth here
And how can I wait?
I’m holding your bag for you
Please, baby, back for bad love, bad love

[Outro]
How can I wait?
Holding your bag for you

Streetball + Hoops + Old Love = Needs Rekindling

September 21st, 2017

wallup.net

horrible summer with not getting out and being active.  with the summer coming to a close… i miss my passion.  i miss the courts.  the courts are calming and it’s my church.  nobody has any problems when they play.  they can’t see outside the lines.  only the things happening inside the lines matter.  you can’t hear the world.  you only hear the game.

fall is upon us.  the evening dew will kill the outdoor game at Simcoe.  the welly will have runs this fall and into the frost and into the snow we will go.

i want the love back.

i will get it.

Quarterly Update | Welcome!

September 19th, 2017

 

File_000

summer moves quickly into fall…

September 19th, 2017

this summer has come and gone.  where did it go.  honestly this summer is a blur.  what is happening?  where did it go?  will it come back soon?

my name is dan and this is my little blog that i try and bookmark things, thoughts and moments.  no idea who looks.  it doesn’t really matter really.  this blog is more for me to look back on and use it as a reference point to people when i need to tell a story or highlight something that i bookmarked.

m

my last post is here in Feb.  all my past little updates are here.  three sweet songs were selected for the songs of the quarter.  “lost in the light” and “black oak“.  the song from bahamas gets me in feels and no comment on NW.

i suck… it’s so hard to pick a song for the 4th quarter and hopefully knocking out this post it will come to me.  my little boo turned 16.  she is so sweet.  i must say that i’ve gone nuts on spotify and have created 44 public playlists for all types of moods.

the cold war is over.  little man has my old phone and boo has a new one.

it was nice to see Dan in a new little unique venue and also listen to some music at the folk fest.  lisbon… let’s try that again in nov with the kids.  it was nice to visit ottawa for a little last minute jaunt.

summer where did you go.  not enough patios, walks, hikes, tennis, hoops, concerts, sunsets and sunrises.  too much work.

33% of my heart goes to little man above and the other 33% goes to boo down below…

too much of you lufty this summer.

not impressed with the effort.  fail.  need to get up and get to it.  more on that soon in another post.

i miss many things.  i can name 9 things.  i will keep that list to myself.

lyrics eat me up.  they do.

w1

too many things to look forward to.  enough with this post.  let’s move forward since this summer didn’t give me a chance to say goodbye properly.

until the next update… i promise to have more to blog about.  promise!

Jordan Eleven’s | GOAT

September 19th, 2017

air-jordan-11-space-jam-2009-3

in 2000, i picked up a pair of size 13 elevens.  i remember when they came out… i was not that much of a fan of them and they grew on me and now i just love them.  they were in the movie space jam.

air-jordan-11-space-2009-2

i’ve played basketball in them inside and i honestly can’t believe i’ve had them for 17 years.  wtf.

jordan

landscape-1456420673-space-jam-air-jordan-11

these were released in 1995.  created by Tinker Hatfield and he wanted to use materials not used in any basketball shoes.  in 1995 they retailed for $124.99 back in the day.  in 2000, i picked them up for two hundred bones.  when money started the season after coming back at the end of the 95 playoffs, the bulls went 72-10 with J in the 11’s.  J won the championship on Father’s Day one year after his father was taken from him.  this shoe was his comeback shoe and sealed his second three-peat.

Chill Hop | New Mixes

September 13th, 2017

maxresdefault

i found myself in the evenings on my way home pushing the button to play my instrumental beats… which i have now renamed “ChillHop | Home From Work“.  i really liked the vibe and i wanted to have a couple more mixes broken down in segments…  so this is what i came up with…

one for the morning that is more “morning happy”… one is for when you get home from work and one is for when you are going to hang with peeps…. while we are at it… one is for when you want to have a shower in the dark with a woman.  gotta dream right.  hell… might as well make it in Bermuda.  😉

Gj-yyJHYoQ

here are the 3 new mixes and the rebrand of the first one that inspired the new three…

tumblr_ow8a0i2CPW1qeqfrto1_400

You can listen to the “good morning mix” on spotify and follow the playlist to add it to your library here.  it’s a hour of songs if you want your ass to wiggle instead of sleepy folk songs.

tumblr_ow8a4nXBFM1qeqfrto1_400

You can listen to the “getting home from work mix” here.  right now it’s 54min’s to let you pour yourself a drink and change your clothes to get out of the 9-5 that you are wearing.

tumblr_ow8a1vleNd1qeqfrto1_400

you can listen on spotify the mingle mix here.  right now it’s a little over a hour of a mix with a little bit of groove.  keep it low in the background when people come over.

you can listen below to the mix if you are playing this on your laptop below:

tumblr_ow8a35M9Nj1qeqfrto1_400

you can listen to the shower mix if you can get your ass in the shower with someone.  follow it on spotify so it’s in your collections of saved mixes.  you can find it here.

You can find me on spotify here.  right now… i have 44 public playlists to help with keeping me in a mood or helping me get to a certain mood.  you always need help moving up or down in the mood department.
