MTX - songs I used to dislike but don't anymore

Category: Music

This playlist is for the Mixtape Exchange group. I hated country music on principle until around 2005, but I like some 80s and 90s country now.  (That includes a lot of songs that I didn't know existed in the 80s and 90s, but to keep with the theme of "songs I once disliked," all the 80s and 90s country music here are songs I definitely knew existed back then.) My brother loved gangsta rap in its ... » Continue Reading

MTX - collaborations and duets

Category: Music

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMmNZc9rPIA_BJX53YkyjZDwdSHEdAk3i 1) Smooth - Santana featuring Rob Thomas.  The only song I ever heard on the radio four times within half an hour, back in 1999 when it was getting played on both classic rock and pop stations and I used to flip around on the radio dial a lot in the car. 2) Good Time - Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen 3) Under Pressure - Queen a... » Continue Reading

MTX - rarities and album tracks

Category: Music

This is a playlist for the Mixtape Exchange group https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMmNZc9rPIA-chZ921Ki98-QtA99F8uzN The topic was "B-sides," but these days most music doesn't come from physical media, and when it does it isn't usually the type that has sides, so that topic was somewhat open to interpretation.  I went with the theme of artists' lesser known songs, so in order to be included,... » Continue Reading

MTX - covers

Category: Music

This post was originally for the Mixtape Exchange group . I didn't include songs where the cover is more well known these days than the original, since that's probably a good topic in its own right.  I also didn't include any artist or lead vocalist more than once.  I also leaned toward covers that I have specific memories tied to, or out-of-genre covers because those are always fun.  I'm going to... » Continue Reading

MTX - summer playlist

Category: Music

This post was originally for the Mixtape Exchange group So first I searched my playlist for songs with the word "summer" in the title, then I searched for songs with "sun" in the title because I associate summer with sunshine, and that's how I like my summers.  I then threw in a few songs that are tied to specific summer memories, and I narrowed it down. I just realized that I started with Alan Do... » Continue Reading

heartbreak playlist

Category: Music

This was for the Mixtape Exchange group ( click ).  The assignment was to choose love or heartbreak and make a playlist.  I chose heartbreak.  That was an easy one... do what you know, right? As is the case with most of my playlists that aren't tied to a specific era, these songs are all over the place when it comes to era and genre.  I started with songs about having been left, then songs about t... » Continue Reading

ripe for the harvest

Category: Religion and Philosophy

I put myself in a vulnerable position recently. I was talking with someone I had met briefly once or twice before, and I mentioned something about how all my friends were moving away, and I had given some consideration to that thought too. I shared about how I haven't moved away mostly because I had been praying about this in the spring of 2019, and God sent me the same relevant Scripture twice in... » Continue Reading

laptop issues

Category: Web, HTML, Tech

Some of you have heard parts of this story.  It's still going on, so I'm going to share here. In January, I ordered a custom built laptop from a company that was recommended to me by someone whose opinions I trust on such matters.  I named it "Gabilan."  (Computers are named after Steinbeck characters, remember.)  (This was what I was getting delivered when I had my problems with UPS.)  It was a b... » Continue Reading
