Today is Ryan's 1-Year (Yo!) anniversary at VNS (Visiting Nurse Services) of NY. So I met him and Eugi in Soho to get some cones at Van Leeuwen's ice cream truck, for now stationed at the corner of Prince and Greene streets. Delicious, naturally-made ice cream. We all got strawberry, which was blended smooth without any lumps of strawberries. Which I thought was great because usually, strawberries in ice cream or yogurt have the consistency of gritty rotten meat. Hello summer!
I wanted this to be a mixtape but who even makes those anymore? I am still holding on to this old stereo my friend gave me for Christmas many years ago that has a tape player in it. Because I do listen to mixtapes. From over 10 years ago even.
For this playlist, there are a couple of old tracks. Many are new or recently (like in the last year) released. Not your typical summer mix I guess - some songs are somewhat melancholy and slow, to match all the fragging rain we have been having this year. It's only about 40 minutes long, which gets me door-to-door from home to work. Enjoy.
