Hello again,

A lot has been going on over the last month or so but I’ve managed to get this one nice early 70’s African & Brazilian funk-psych mix together for ya. There are some really nice cookers in this mix that have been destroying me daily for the last couple months…I simply can’t stop cranking them on high-fi the second I get in the door after work..Music like this really makes me wish I could seriously dance. Oh, and there are some early James Brown tunes in here as well.

I  hit a pedestrian bulb-out a few weeks ago on my bicycle while biking at night. It was a bad wreck, one of the worst I’ve been in for sure, but somehow I walked away with only emotional scarring and a beat-up bike and helmet. I know these bulb-outs probably won’t disappear anytime soon but I decided to write a letter to the newspaper and they published it, so maybe city official folks will start rethinking these things before they put more in. This Missoula woman wasn’t as lucky as I was.

I’m heading outta town for a bit so I’ll see you in August.

Have a nice one, Collin
