How’s about that, it seems that it’s that time again

Cupid's Hunt

In the 365 days a year we have, there is only one set aside for love. I’m not here to debate how wrong that is(because it is), but what I am hear to tell you about is that during this time of joy, there is an event of monumental proportions happening. What is this event I’m speaking of? It is the annual Cupid Hunt Podcast Event sired by Mr. TGrundy aka “Mr. Brilliant”. Recall, if you will, my mentioning of it(pause for dream sequence). Done? Good, well now it’s that time again, and guess who’s joined in the fun? ME! Kind of makes sense, I speak on music occasionally. I’ve posted playlists in a couple of places on the net. Natural fit, right? Of course it is.

So I know you’re asking the question: “Roddy, where can these mixes be found?” Well, younglings, I will tell you. The Great List of mixes and also information on the Cupid Hunt can be found at TGrundy’s site, Rhythms In Black Satin.  I recommend you go there & have at all of the mixes available. You will NOT be disappointed! Now, if you are possibly saying to yourself, “Didn’t he just mention that he did a mix? Where is that?” Well, that was nice of you to notice. In addition to a link to my mix being found at TGrundy’s site, you can go directly there from here:

More on that particular site next post. For now, enjoy the music. 🙂

* I almost went with this as the title of my mix. Almost.

Cupid's Hunt music podcasts

It’s that time again. Once again, it’s time for the annual Cupid Hunt Podcast Event masterminded by the one TGrundy over at Rhythms In Black Satin(RIBS, for short). This is the event where a group of music podcasters & DJ’s all release mixes with the theme related to Valentine’s Day and the subject of love. Information about this annual affair can be found, here. This year, I decided to join the fun with a mix of my own. It was no easy task even when knowing what I’ve wanted to do since last year’s Cupid Hunt. Needless to say, I encourage you to go check out every mix that’s being put out for this event. Most of the people in my Blogroll will be providing mixes for this event. The master list of mixes is being kept here. It will be updated as the weekend progresses. Here are some of the ones that I know are posted already:

TGrundy

I would like to thank TGrundy for the opportunity to take part in this event. That said:

I’ve always loved making slow tapes. You either had a mood-setting mix, straight baby making music or some combination of the two. I wish I hadn’t gotten out of doing them or mixes period. That’s another story. Right now, it’s about a soundtrack. As in from a movie. Back in the 90’s, it seemed like most every urban themed or starred movie had a great soundtrack with some notable slow songs attached to it. Sometimes, the soundtracks were better than the movies themselves. I thought I’d make a mix that incorporated some of those songs in my mix. So without further ado, here it is.
