Both Sides Now
sintalentos: day 1
When I tell people I DJ, I usually get one of two responses: the first is a casual "Oh...," the type that trails off towards an ambiguous path of exhausted familiarity or plain disinterest; the second is the slightly more engaged, "What do you like to spin?"

Back at home for a minute. Man, it's good out here: eating blueberries fresh from the front yard and scoring $1 copies of a Tendaberry.
Travel time for me still means fun time for you. Here's one of several blends for my beautiful friends Laura e Mario. Mario is one of the good folks behind an awesome new Neapolitan restaurant opening soon in the UES Tiella. Which means this blend is on the sip-don't-slurp, nibble-don't-burp relaxation tip. I.e., please indulge heavily this weekend.
