House Edition 2008 v5 (Take 1)

House-Edition-2008-v5-1Perhaps it’s a bit presumptive of me to post this before the polls have closed, but the current polling suggests that Barack Obama has a healthy 11 point lead over John McCain, well over the margin of error.  If those stats are to be believed, then this country, for the first time in our history, will have put a black man in the Oval Office.  Even more significant, are the record 29 million votes already cast in early voting.  Coupled with all of the voting to take place today, this election has engaged Americans like no other election in history and is quite possibly one of the most memorable events of my lifetime.  If Michelle Obama was only recently proud of her country for the first time in her life, I can honestly say the same thing.

Certainly, we approach that sentiment from a different perspective, but I understand the intolerance, the hatred, the bigotry behind those views.  As a disabled, gay American, I get it from all sects of society.  Nevertheless, I am a product of my Catholic conservative parents and retain many of the same values that were instilled in me since birth.  I believe in the “American Dream”.  I believe that anyone can rise from difficult circumstances to make a better life for themselves and those they love.  Barack Obama’s rise to the top only confirms that belief.  It is for this very reason I continue to persevere in my daily struggles to find a job, to make a comfortable living for myself and my partner.  Barack didn’t give up, and nor will I.  This is truly a time to celebrate.

With that, I bring you the first of four mixes celebrating the ascendancy of President Obama.  Folks, it’s time to P-A-R-T-Y!!!  The first half of this mix is admittedly self-indulgent.  It’s where the old meets the new.  It’s party music for happy people.  It’s funky, it’s fabulous…it’s DISCO!  When I started working on the mix, I didn’t have a lot to work with, so I decided that I would reach back to when I started this blog in November of last year and pulled out a bunch of my favorite funky tunes at the time.  I coupled that with a few goodies from earlier this year, plus a bunch of new stuff and some updated disco classics.  All told, between the four mixes, there isn’t a loser in the bunch…yup, it’s that good!

So, squeeze into those low-riding bell-bottoms and slip on those platforms, because honey, we’re gonna boogie 2 nite!  Don’t be deterred by any lawsuits brought on by those poor loser Republicans.  Once the stations call the election I want everyone dancing in the streets with your boomboxes.  Get down, boogie oogie oogie, shake, shake, shake…shake your booty like there’s no tomorrow!  Just remember, this party goes on all week.  I’ll be back each day with a new mix for your weekend blowout.

BE PROUD AND PLAY IT LOUD!
