I guess there’s just something about New Year that makes you feel like you can change anything about yourself. I worked over New Year (DJ gig in London), so I guess that probably added to a feeling of positivity on 01.01.2010.
Plus, this TED talk about how we could actually live forever has had me thinking ever since I watched in in early 2009. Aubrey de Grey might be crazy. I don’t know enough about the science to even form much of an educated opinion about whether I think he is or not. But it’s a cool thought.
Anyway, this mix was taken from a section of the New Year’s Eve set I did.
