YK Summer Mix Anniversary

Pal of mine Michael Eades used to host an annual Summer Mix series. It was before everyone was on streaming sites, so you would have to patch together a zip file of mp3s, or stitch something together and host if yourself.

This week marks the 10th anniversary of my 2012 submission which is absolutely crazy to think about. It still bangs, in case you were wondering.

I cooked it up in Spotify but a couple of crucial tracks are missing. It is still a strong listen but isn’t the same.

Baby’s First Dub

I’ve been swinging and missing on these SNKRS drops for a few months., so I decided to go in on anything that I might wear of flip.

Now that I’ve got these on the way, I don’t know if they’re a keep or not.

Weekend Getaway

Stole away to Nelson County, Va. with some of the tennis guys this weekend. We had one back over the summer, too, and it’s starting to feel like it could be a quarterly thing. That’s about as much of it as I can take.

We stayed up on the mountain at Wintergreen, but lucked into nice weather and played some tennis in the valley. Otherwise, it was eating and drinking. It’s a lovely place this time of year.

The Mets stunk this year but the booth was still great

It was a tough year (again) to be a Mets fan. The promise of the first half was frittered away almost immediately in the second. It was hard to watch. At least they still have the best local broadcast team in baseball. These annual highlight videos of the guys goofing off are fun, but I’d rather have a compilation of great plays that lead to a playoff berth…

Enjoyed a Princeton for recording this week.

It’s still fun to cook up a new-to-me cocktail for podcast recording but I struggle sometimes with inspiration. Googling for cocktails kind of sucks.

That the is The Princeton, according to this great 1971 4th edition of Playboy’s Host and Bar Book. I wouldn’t have considered adding lime juice to a dry martini, but the result isn’t bad at all.


There are a jillion recipes in this book, but also a lot of old-school party hosting rules and advice. Like, it goes into the right kind of ice and explores a wide range of glassware options. Sadly, despite being a Playboy publication, no nudes.

115 with two pars!

I got my semi-annual round of golf in the other weekend. I am not a good golfer.

There was a time in my early 30’s that I played enough to get okay for a casual golfer. Now, I get out there to hang with my golfing friends and enjoy some cocktails at a country club that would never have me as a member.

I’ll check back in after the winter round. I can do better than 115.
