  • I never know what to say anymore with these little intros. I used to try and describe the mixes but that often seemed like an exercise in futility (since most of these mixes cover a lot of ground). Sometimes I liked to give a little context for how the mixes came my way, but I’m not sure if that’s particularly relavent to most folks.

    Also, I liked to have the opportunity to editorialize a little bit about shit going on around me or the world. Somehow all of it seems a little too overwhelming to get into these days. It’s like I either want to write a massive treatise on the state of world, or write nothing at all.

    This sounds like a little bit of rant. I don’t mean it to. I think I’m trying to figure out where Bird & Whale is headed. The whole idea of a personal blog seems somehow, suddenly, a little antiquated. That being said, I’m super proud of all the material that is assembled within these walls and recognize that it needs to continue.

    Anyway, tune in people. Beautiful angular sounds here from mike d. Please extend him a warm welcome!
