First Splash Edition 2008 | Pt. 1 & 2

Well, it looks as if I’m way ahead of the curve. I managed to clean up my computer, replace the motherboard, backup everything to two external hard drives (for anal retentive sake), and reinstalled Vista now that SP1 is out. I also switched to DSL from Cable (good riddance).

So where did I find the time to knock this edition out you ask? I threw all the songs together in a giant mix and burned it to an mp3 disc so I could preview the tunes I wanted to use for this mix while I was working on the computer. Not only was the mix spectacular, I was able to go back and make a handful of tweaks and of course, edits to cut the time under 80 minutes per mix for those that like to burn to disc.

All told I might have spent 3 hours in total in the mix. I can assure you, it’s rare that all the songs I want to use just fall into place, but it does happen. Even though First Splash isn’t until the end of the Month, I wanted to ensure there was no overlapping with my Pride Edition that comes out in June. So spacing these mixes out just made good sense.

For those of you who may be wondering what First Splash is, it is Memorial Day weekend in Austin, TX. Much like your White Party and its brethren, this is a major Gay celebration that goes on all weekend. Typically considered the time of year when you’re ready to shed all your clothes for more suitable attire befitting the season. You can certainly do that at “Hippie Hollow” a nudist area just off the lake. If you’ve never been, you ought to check it out.

There’s a newer First Splash that started on South Padre Island back in 2000. I was asked to spin two years in a row for the event and the accompanying “Last Splash” which occurs on Labor Day weekend. Though small at the time, it’s well on its way to being a viable competitor to the one in Austin. “The Upper Deck” owner has been buying up all the property down the street where his hotel is located and had plans to build a giant indoor club to allow the party to go on all night. I haven’t been back in a while, I guess maybe I should.

I really like this mix. Side one is chock full of cheez. Mind you, not that government cheez, but grade ‘A’ quality cheez. Nevertheless, still cheez…LOL. As the mix progresses, it begins to get deeper about 2/3 of the way down. Side two picks up where mix 1 leaves off and holds steady until the end, where I had to throw in one last slice of cheez, an updated version of the eighties NRG classic “So Many Many, So Little Time”. All in all, this is one solid mix that I’m very proud of and I hope will get the boys all excited about Summer! Yay, the warmer weather is on its way and it’s time to get all sweaty on the dancefloor again.

I still have a few more things that need to be taken care of, so I may or may not be back this next weekend with my next update. I decided to go ahead and knock out my next Electro-Funk Edition followed by the next installment of the Classix Edition that was originally promised. I’ll see how everything pans out, but those of you that regularly visit my blog, know me well enough that I just can’t stay away. Until then, everyone have a great weekend and as always…ENJOY!
