lol, nahhh that didn't work out so well last time, so figured I'd keep it simple. 😆

Maybe I'll do some more themes in the future, but this time around it's wide open!

I recently stumbled upon a whole scene of DJs that spin cassettes instead of records and find it all fascinating!

The person behind the wheels in this first video is DJ ooedotechnica... I've kinda struggled to find info on them, but am def interested in what they do! Apparently, they built their own equipment for DJ-ing cassettes — check it out in their quirky performance below for the DJ-heavy YouTube channel, The Moment.

Here's another cassette-spinning DJ that goes by DJ Yew. This set is also from The Moment, and is all Hip Hop. Dig it!

Do people listen to different music on different days. 🤔

I have a set playlist while working and play it on loop.😛

That's an interesting question! I personally don't have set music for each day of the week, but just like to constantly switch it up.

That said, I do have certain types of music that I go to while working... especially if it's really focused work. In those cases, I often am drawn to instrumental music, lofi beats, and ambient stuff.

How about you? What kinda stuff goes on your working playlist?

Even I do like lofi, ambient music when I'm too focused on work but for other times I love hip hops and chill musics.🤗

I totally feel ya on that!

My preferences change day-to-day, but I typically got certain music that I like to work to and certain music that I like to chill to... but even then, the lines get blurred, haha! For instance, I love listening to ambient music while working, but sometimes even while chilling outside of work I like to put it on. For example, I popped on Music for Airports the other day when I had a long drive to take.

Awww man! Nice. I think I hear some samples from Nuthin' but a "G" Thang in there too — was not expecting that, but it fits!
