Thursday Thoughts

This morning my roommate drove me to the metro (Thank You!!) It was pretty awesome, until I realized after I got on the metro and was riding for 10 minutes that I got on the wrong train.

Baking is slowly consuming my life. I made pumpkin donuts the other night. Donuts are a million times better than cupcakes. Give me baked confections with holes in them. Now.

Speaking of baking, my friends have pumpkin brownies. I told them I would barter these for said brownies. Looks like I will be having a dance party in the kitchen tonight. I'm not complaining.

It's a rainy, dreary day in DC. Rainy, dreary days in DC call for extra awesome DDPs. And now I'm obsessed with this track!

02 - Kamp! - Cairo (Moullinex Remix) by Discotexas

This particular DDP is from the Canadian blog, The Ambitious C, and part of their mixtape series. I love their mixtape series, and my favorite Drop Out Orchestra mix happens to be from this site - and I've mentioned it before! Mirror People (Rui Maia) is a DJ/Producer from Portugal, and was kind of enough to share his mix via Soundcloud. He has said he has been influenced by such labels as DFA and Italians Do it Better!, and thus Mirror People was born and his mixes and tracks show his love for disco-house oriented music. (source)

The mixtape includes many familiar tracks, and I approve of all them. While they are familiar, I don't think these are 'played out' yet, and haven't been on too many mixes that are circulating currently. I love Rocco Raimundo's re-interpretation of "Foreign Language". That song will never, ever get old to me. LOVE 27'ish minutes in, too. DDP (!!!)

So yea, have a listen to this mix and have a great Thursday because tomorrow's Friday. And Friday means it's basically the weekend. And there are some dance parties to be had this weekend.
