“All white people like hummus. In fact, if you find a white person who does not like hummus then they probably just haven’t tasted it or they are the wrong kind of white person. In either case, they are probably not someone that you want to know.”—
This was one of the songs we had played at my grandmother’s funeral a few months ago. I generally don’t get upset at funerals until the music starts playing at the end of the service. This is going to be one of those songs that is forever tied to a certain memory.

Keyboardist Merl Saunders died over the weekend. Merl was probably best known for his collaborations with Jerry Garcia, but also had a great solo career. I was lucky enough to see him live a few times years ago. The Hammond organ never sounded so sweet. RIP, Merl.
“People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.”— Mother Teresa (via lavenderlines) (via skysignal) (via hellovagina) (via unicornology)
Looking through a pile of my old mix CDs I found a Halloween mix I made 2 years ago when I was a college radio DJ. Seeing as how I will be going on a mini roadtrip to a Halloween party tonight, and my friend asked me to make some cds, I figured I should expand upon the original mix. So here is the 2 disc Halloween special edition mixtape in all it’s glory. I didn’t make the album art however. If you look close enough you can see where I made crude alterations by blocking out a few words haha. Anyways download it and enjoy for the next week at least.
