Muzak Musings 6-13-13


Sorry for the delay, work was crazy, and there was a nail in my tire when I got to work. Okay, the nail got there before I got to work, but either way, I got a flat. Hence the reason why today’s, rather yesterday’s, Muzak Musings is short, and why it’s coming out today. Also, it looks like they went crazy with the cheese whiz with the selection today. 80s and 90s with a splash of 2000s goodness. First time I’ve seen a righteous mix since I started keeping track.

Muzak Musings 5-24-13


It looks like there was another channel change. I also have found the source of our music, and it is in fact actually Muzak, or whatever it is they’re calling themselves now. I also found out that a standard mp3 player can be hooked up to pipe in music of our choosing into the building, so I’m totally hoping we can spring for that option, but I’m not hopeful it’ll fly. Another work shortened list, also I didn’t know half of these songs and I could Shazam them at will either.

Muzak Musings 5-23-13


Today’s Muzak Musings is shorter than normal, namely because I spent most of the last two days rooting and flashing (and nearly bricking) Jelly Bean onto my phone, and I got the reins of another project at work, and also I can barely hear the music today. It’s even more 80s-riffic than normal.
