March Mixtape: Samples

I try to do a Mixtape every so often with a different theme. Its in no way intended to be "cool" (most of my choices are embarrassingly mainstream) but I like to try and get the flow of the tracks seamless.

This month's mix is entitled "Samples". If the title doesn't give it away, it's a collection of songs that contain samples of other song's. Maybe I'll compile a mix of the sampled song's at some point (interestingly, 3 of the tracks sample The Clash).


And if you want a physical copy, let me know.

Walk Along the Canal

After working nearly all week, Elisabeth finally had some free time, and we went for a walk along the Stoke canal.

Everyone thinks they're such sweet little things.
Every duck we saw was with a partner: it was sweet.

One of the reasons I love walking along the canal is to see the old buildings.

Part of the canal path was getting work done, so we had to be diverted, which led us to a part of Stoke that was like a ghost town: streets of houses completly boarded up.

The sign which caused the argument over how far we had walked (I still think I was right!)

We came across this old abandoned railway track, where we sat to eat our sandwiches. Next time, we'll see where it leads!

Isn't she prettyful?
