As is my wont, this is all to make a short story long about why my email address and myspace have doowad jones, rather than simply doowad, since the aforementioned DJ beat me to the punch. I picked jones because when I was a kid, I longed for the anonymity of such a simple name, so since I needed an anonymous surname, and since I am a certifiable Dylan freak, I understand that in every breath I take, I am just another know-it-all, know-nothing Mr. Jones.
In any case, since the Clark Kent version of me works with translators from all over the world, I contacted one of my star Hungarian translators, Csaba Bßn ·r, who explained to me that the word itself (doowad) "doesn't make any sense in Hungarian. But it's pronounced as `d·vad', which is an existing word, meaning "small game", such as fowl, pheasant, hare, duck, etc.".Hell, that sounded like a good reason for a mix, at least as good as any I have come up with in the past couple days. And it is one of those mixes I usually complain about, where you let your media library find the tunes for you, rather than your own musical memory/instinct. Many of the songs here were to be featured on my original concept for my Grandpa Bernie, which was to be titled "The Biology of Calling Deer". Then the Rufus Thomas was cut from the latest Gutbucket Brothers offering. And I even included some pizza hippie tunes for Rupert. To make the venture a little more interesting, after sequencing this miscellaneous-genre beast (pun intended), I decided to play with the MP3 upload function at AOTM. And I know I cheated and put a couple songs about deer, dogs and a even about toros, but every great (or mediocre, whichever the case may be) mix should contradict itself at some point.

I can sympathize, d·vad, it turned out there was already a DJ Mixxer out there. Happy huntin', hombre.

Thanks for the mention. Another fabulous effort Doowad. Always a pleasure to see Portishead, GBV and the amazing White Rabbit on a mix. Inspired idea for a mix too. I was married to a Hungarian for several years, a really impenetrable language, just as well she spoke fluent English, oh and I was definitely the duvad in that situation.

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club! I'll also bet that Alejandro track is worth hearing, and one certainly can't go wrong with Python. I'll second K&R's setiments concerning White Rabbit too.

Duelling dualistic doowads, Batman!

Regardless, it looks like the Hungarian hunting is excellent, you appear to have bagged a bunch of quetzal-quality tracks here . . .
