Pick Your Poison: Thursday 6-21-12
Happy Summer Solstice! Yes, my friends, today is the day in the northern hemisphere with the most sunlight. If you’re planning to do something outside, such as grill or play sports, there’s no better day to do it. Maximize your productivity and have some fun while doing so. Even the graveyard shifters get a little more light than usual, though that may be a detriment if it makes it tougher to sleep. And hey, solar power earns an extra boost today too. But who am I kidding. Yesterday was really bright too, and tomorrow will be as well. These additional amounts of sun amount more to minutes than hours. Today’s sun is probably no more than 30 seconds more than yesterday’s. I guess the grand point is: it’s summer. Enjoy it. This edition of Pick Your Poison is a nice soundtrack to it as well. Pay close attention to tracks from Acid House Kings (THREE of them!), Chandeliers, Donnis, Lorelai, The Royal Concept, Western Affairs and Zulu Winter. In the Soundcloud section there’s also a great remix by Four Tet of a track from Neneh Cherry + The Thing.
