I just know that something good is gonna happen.
Okay, maybe someone can answer this question for me ... I need to make a video to introduce myself, as a runner. Kind of a try-out video. Instead, just me, being myself, talking about running.
What do I talk about when I talk about running? I mean ... that someone like yourself actually finds interesting.

A return to techno. And a welcome one, at this point. I got a number of extended dance mix discs in the past few years, but never really "employed" them.
The Genius feature in iTunes is dicey ... if you choose a familiar tune, you may get the same mix every single time. You really need to pick an off-the-chart track for the algorithm to choose a unique, interesting mix.
After reading that piece about Kraftwerk at MOMA, I spun off The Model, got 100 tracks and turned them into ten different, ten-song playlists. And I am enjoying them.
