I’m doing the thing that all “good” DJ’s say they will never do. But I am no DJ, and I need those sweet, sweet clicks. I put out the request call, to see what the people want to hear.
I will get back to the requests here in second, but I would be re-missed if I didn’t touch on a little something from Mississippi. Do you know what I hate more than Longhorn/Aggie dick measuring contests and wet socks combined? That would be wedding line dancing. It was 100% banned from my wedding last year, and I was in constant fear that someone was going to insert a boogie, of the Boot-Scootin kind.
It is the cringiest of cringe-worthy activities that, for the most part, pasty white Dads seem to love. But, dammit if the Mississippi Shuffle isn’t a stone cold banger. Have a listen, and try not to have a good time imagining people “dancing” to this.
OK back to the meat of this post. Like I said, I put out the bat signal for requests and Jesus tap dancing Christ was this a temperature check of Aggie Fandom. First off, our in house, illustrious, former student athlete Jay Arnold suggested just playing Bob Dylan’s Desolation Row because ‘that’s what 2019 feels like.’ Uh-oh, I think I might have made a mistake because this is what came next:
I didn’t think this would be such a morose reply from Aggie fans, but by God can we BTHO self loathing. Now the playlist this week will a different breed, I am going to tag all participants, and this was a really fun experiment. I love commiserating with my internet friends and getting a peek into what they like. Next week we will get back into my weird corners of my brain and music most people have not heard of.
Going to change it up and put the song description in the middle of the post so all contributors are recognized.

Another early kickoff means a 6 PM game here in Deutschland, and while I am not a fan of the Ags being just above the Mendoza line. Mediocrity means I get to watch more football. I have my Murder Coffee @thacktor posted in the Tailgate brewing right now. God’s speed for kegs and eggs to everyone in College Station. Be safe, have fun and #BTHOmissst
