So I was going to Nationals. But then I got sick and some other stuff happened and it didn’t make sense to go anymore, so I didn’t go. That meant I was staying here, in Craftsbury. Then there was a trip to Canada to race that I also didn’t go on, because if I shouldn’t race in Alaska, I shouldn’t race at all. So then for a few days everyone was gone and I was home alone. I only felt like McCaulay Culkin a little bit. Three things got me through this time:
1. The skiing is incredible.
3. Techno music.
This post is about the techno music.
I like lots of music. If you’re an avid reader of this blog, you’ll know already that I like pop music. But I also like classic rock (used to a lot, sometimes still do), soft rock, dance, trance, a lot of other stuff, and techno.
I really like techno mostly when I’m training, like in the gym or on my iPod if I want to listen to it while I train, which is not that often. But this week, for some reason, I started listening to it everywhere I could. It all started with Bashunter’s All I Ever Wanted but now it’s really blown up. I’m starting to think of all sorts of techno remixes I want to hear of the other songs I already liked. I’d say it got to it’s most extreme point when I started to make up, in my head, a remix for “8 Days a Week” by The Beatles. I only realized how bad it had gotten when I realized I was making this thing up out loud.
So where does all that leave me? First, I’m happy that my buddies are back. Second, if anyone knows a good techno remix of 8 Days a Week, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. My version just really isn’t that good.
I’ll leave you with my old favorite remix (besides Ignition Remix, if that counts). You’re welcome.
