YOUR WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH

YOUR WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH

Every Monday, I update this YOUR WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH Spotify playlist with a different mix of 95 great tunes. 95 tunes that you can through on shuffle to help get yourself through another week of the '9 to 5s', whatever it is you do in the hours between 9 and 5.

And if a 95 track playlist that you can take with you anywhere is not enough, keep scrolling downwards for a run-down of upcoming happenings and 95EH reading material. Win win winning.


YOUR WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH | To listen, you can either press play on the embedded player above or—and probably the better option—you can jump over to Spotify and listen there (I think Spotify still lets you create a free account, but I could be wrong as I have a subscription included in my phone bill). When over on Spotify, you'll want to press the 'follow' button on this playlist as that way you can save it for offline listening + it will automagically update every Monday when a new batch of 95 tracks is added.

If you don't have a Spotify account, you can also try listening over on Soundsgood (as they give you a few more non-Spotify listening options). Alternatively, you can also tune into the 24/7 stream of ace tunes that Mountown Radio pumps out all day (and if you do use Spotify and are looking for more playlists to dive into… you'll find a bunch over here).


BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE…


EVENTS COMING UP AROUND HWY 95EH…

If you live in the Highway 95eh area (or are here visiting)… why not grab your weekly planner out and have a gander at some upcoming events.


AND HERE'S SOME RECENT HWY 95EH BLOG POSTS…

Because sometimes it's nice to catch up on some casual internet reading when the boss isn't looking, right?


This Week's WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH Cover Art…

…was made with a photo taken from a recent chill at Wasa Lake (it a few attempts, but we eventually found a spot with no mosquitos). If you'd fancy having one of your own Highway 95 / 95a photos used for a future YOUR WEEKLY 9(to)5 EH playlist cover - just use the hashtag #hwy95eh or #95EH to put your photo on my radar (or you can also just tag @95ehdotca on Instagram or even go old skool and shoot me an email). 


IS THAT IT?


OK, that is it. For now. Get a similar "Musical + What's Happening" update at the end of the week (1 week COFFEE, 1 week BEER) and swing by MOUNTOWN RADIO at anytime for even more tasty ear candy.

And, as always…

A MORNING COFFEE CATCH-UP

A MORNING COFFEE CATCH-UP

Every other end of the work week, I update this MORNING COFFEE Spotify playlist with a different mix of 30 tunes that shuffle well with that reflective morning coffee (you know the one). And then I pair that playlist with a rundown of upcoming HWY 95EH events and recent reading material, plus sometimes some other things (and on the end of every other week, I do the same thing, except with an AFTERNOON BEER playlist).

So, downwards with your scrolling…


MORNING COFFEE | To listen, you can either press play on the embedded player above or—and probably the better option—you can jump over to Spotify and listen there (I think Spotify still lets you create a free account, but I could be wrong as I have a subscription included in my phone bill).

If you use Spotify, you'll want to press the 'follow' button on this playlist as that way you can save it for offline listening + it will automagically update every time a new batch of 30 tracks that taste right with that early morning caffeine hit get added.

PS - If you don't have a Spotify account, you can also try listening over on Soundsgood (as they give you a few more non-Spotify listening options). Alternatively, you can also tune into the 24/7 stream of ace tunes that Mountown Radio pumps out all day.

EVENTS COMING UP AROUND HWY 95EH…

If you live in the Highway 95eh area (or are here visiting)… why not grab your weekly planner and have a gander at some things you can do once you finish enjoying that morning cup of goodness.


AND HERE'S SOME RECENT HWY 95EH BLOG POSTS…

Because sometimes having a warm cup of day starter is a good excuse to catch up on some casual internet reading, right?


IS THAT IT?


OK, that is it. For now. Catch a similar update every MONDAY or hang tight until next FRIDAY when this update comes in the flavour of a cool afternoon bevy. But until then…

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED W/ JAMES GRAY

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED W/ JAMES GRAY

ON THE LATEST EDITION OF HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

James Gray—the folk singing songer from Ontario, who will have wandered his way back to Green Door for the third time by this Saturday night (June 17th)—metaphorically stops by the blog to kindly give us all some recommendations from the top shelf of life's important categories.

Because there is no better way to find out if a person is your people than finding out what that person likes, right? Right.


NOW ONWARDS WITH THE LIFE TIPS…

WHAT IS THE ONE ALBUM (OR EP OR SONG) THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE THE VERY NEXT MUSICAL THING THAT EVERYONE PRESSES PLAY ON THE NEXT TIME THEY FIND THEMSELVES THINKING “WHAT SHOULD I LISTEN TO NOW”?

Anything John Prine really, he has these lines that are so intense and evoke so much emotion and make me think for days. He sings his words with such charisma and wit in such a humble way. That's my recommendation!

WHAT IS THE ONE MOVIE OR TV SHOW THAT YOU THINK SHOULD BE NEXT IN EVERYBODY’S NETFLIX QUEUE (OK, DOESN’T HAVE TO BE NETFLIX, WE’RE ALL INTERNET ADULTS HERE AND KNOW HOW TO FIND ANYTHING ONLINE, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER)?

I don't watch much TV but I do love Planet Earth. Lots to learn in a fun way. And.. David Attenborough is the man!

I (AND BY “I” I MEAN “THE PERSON THAT IS READING THIS”) AM GOING TO THE BOOK STORE (OK, PROBABLY AMAZON) TO FIND THE VERY NEXT BOOK THAT I WILL BE PUTTING SOME EXTREMELY VALUABLE ‘ME-TIME' ASIDE FOR. WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU GET, IF YOU WERE ME (AND, I SUPPOSE, YOU HADN’T ALREADY READ WHAT YOU’RE ABOUT TO SUGGEST)?

This topic is hard for me to have a strong opinion on as I haven't sat down and read a novel in forever. I love reading local history about where I grew up and about different cultures around the world. So I guess I would suggest reading up on the history of whatever place you find fascinating. It's always nice to know a little bit about what you are seeing.

WHAT IS THE ONE WEBSITE (OR JUST ANY OLD INTERNET THING: APP, GIF, SERVICE, YOUTUBE VIDEO, WHATEVER) THAT YOU WOULD GET REALLY DOWN IN THE DUMPS ABOUT IF IT WERE TO SUDDENLY GO AWAY?

YouTube. 100 percent! YouTube is where I find most of my music. There is so much amazing content from long ago and from all over the world. So much to explore.

AND FINALLY… PLEASE GIVE ONE COMPLETELY UNAIDED RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU THINK EVERYONE SHOULD START DOING / USING / WATCHING / EATING / THINKING / QUITTING / ETC-ING TO MAKE THEIR LIVES A LITTLE BIT MORE BETTER / BEARABLE.

Finally I think we should all work less, and learn to enjoy ourselves more. And learn to actually enjoy ourselves. I spoke to a friend the other day who is in his 70's he said "the best thing about growing old is you let go of all of the pressures and forget about this high bar that young people feel they need to meet". This is something that I am trying to learn how to do at a young age. I think these pressures occupy a lot of emotional space that can be used productively in my Art/work and enjoying my life.


OK folks, there you have it. Things that James thinks you should maybe consider incorporating into your day/life. Before you head off to go ask the boss for a personal day, go follow James Gray on the Facebook and don't forget to swing by Green Door this Saturday (June 17th) to catch him slinging tunes.

I'll leave you with a video of James singing in a Swiss back alley… and I guess we'll internet see you back around these parts for some more HIGHLY RECOMMEND Q&A's with even more people swinging by our little mountain neighbourhood in the very near future.

Or maybe we'll see you back here for some Q&A's with folks that are doing the opposite of 'just passing through'. Or maybe for a musical coffee or beer or a never ending handful of ear candy. But until then…

AN AFTERNOON BEER CATCH-UP

AN AFTERNOON BEER CATCH-UP

Every other end of the work week, I update this AFTERNOON BEER Spotify playlist with a different mix of 30 tunes that shuffle well with that tasty afternoon indulgence (you know the one). And then I pair that playlist with a rundown of upcoming HWY 95EH upcoming events and recent reading material, plus sometimes some other things (and on the next end of the week, I do the same thing, except with a MORNING COFFEE playlist).

So, scroll downwards for a fresh batch of tunes + a rundown of happenings happening around HWY 95eh…


AFTERNOON BEER | To listen, you can either press play on the embedded player above or—and probably the better option—you can jump over to Spotify and listen there (I think Spotify still lets you create a free account, but I could be wrong as I have a subscription included in my phone bill).

If you use Spotify, you'll want to press the 'follow' button on this playlist as that way you can save it for offline listening (ie. take it with you / listen anywhere, innernetz or not) + it will automagically update every time a new batch tunes hat taste right with that cool afternoon reward is added.

PS - If you don't have a Spotify account, you can also try listening over on Soundsgood (as they give you a few more non-Spotify listening options). Alternatively, you can also tune into the 24/7 stream of ace tunes that Mountown Radio pumps out all day.


BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE…


EVENTS COMING UP AROUND HWY 95EH…

If you live in the Highway 95eh area (or are here visiting)… combine sipping your beverage whilst listening to tunes with having a peak below for a summary happenings happening soon.


AND HERE'S SOME RECENT HWY 95EH BLOG POSTS…

Because sometimes having an afternoon cold one is a good excuse to catch up on some casual internet reading. And if you read one of the Q&A's, that's kinda like having a drinking partner, right?


IS THAT IT?


OK, that is it. For now. Catch a similar update every MONDAY or hang tight until next FRIDAY when this update comes in the flavour of a hot morning bevy. But until then…
