Sunday Coffee v3

Sometimes I wonder how much of my life I've wasted re-watching things I really didn't have to. Some examples:

  • This week I watched Klay Thompson's 37-point quarter against Sacramento four times - twice on highlight videos and twice in its entirety.
  • I watched this week's Kroll Show three times - once with the commercials. "Ottawana Go To Bed" music video made this one worth it.

Less recent examples include watching the 2002 Kings/Lakers Western Conference Finals in its entirety no less than a dozen times - most of those coming over this previous summer. As for 90's Bulls games... I couldn't even put a number on it.

Whether or not I'd be a more productive and successful human being after not watching all these repeats, who's to say. Putting it all together, though, it might be wise to spend that time taking in something new.

Wallowing in self-pity over this productivity crisis, I was busy this morning putting together this Sunday Coffee v3 mix, featuring a half hour of the best songs I've taken in over the last couple months. There's a couple originals from Purity Ring and Joey Bada$$, with remixes from Tom Misch, Illenium and Chachi. Track listing:

0:00-4:20 - Amy Winehouse - Rehab (Tom Misch Remix)
4:20-7:55 - Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment - Sunday Candy
7:55-10:10 - Joey Bada$$ - Paper Trails
10:10-14:42 - Purity Ring - Begin Again
14:42-18:14 - Odesza - Always This Late (Illenium Remix)
18:14-22:49 - Timbaland - The Way I Are (Chachi Remix)
22:49-28:42 - Sunny Lax - Daenerys

So, I know, there are many more talented than I at putting songs together in a nice order so it sounds good, but I wanted to try my hand at it. Save your mean comments for in-person, I'm very fragile.

Have a great week and please, if it's three degrees Celsius out, you have my blessing to put away your winter coat.
