Playlists poppin’!  One major goal I have for californyinz this year is to step up my playlist game.  I definitely fell off, and I’ve realized that music is the one thing that makes me truly happy.  So a message to myself – DO BETTER – in 2018.  I plan to make this a weekly thing, preferably on Sundays so you can enjoy the sounds on your day off and also enjoy them throughout the week to keep you moving.

This first playlist is titled ‘strip club shawty.’  Now before you get all judgmental, chill.  I went to a strip club last February for a friend’s birthday, and I couldn’t help but notice how fire the music was that the dancers were dancing to.  Songs that I love, songs that I forgot about, and songs that I had never heard before.  I mean Sam Hunt’s “Speakers,” which is a country song, was one of the tracks.  Who would have thought:  1) at a strip club  2) that I would have liked that song. So, I decided to Shazam a majority of the songs while I was there and turn them into a playlist. Yes, I know – almost a year later.  Two hours and 12 minutes (33 songs) of strip club sounds. Track listing below and the link in pink.  Check it.

And follow me on Apple Music because that’s where I’ll be uploading the heat.




Serge’s Selections 10.26.15

Happy Monday, yinz!

I feel like I haven’t done ‘Serge’s Selections’ in a while, so let’s start that back up.

What did I do this weekend?  It was pretty chill – my three roommates were up north running their butts off for the Ragnar Relay.  Two hundred miles from San Fransico to Napa!  They’re pretty epic.  So I laid low, stayed in Long Beach, went to a beach bonfire, and was productive for my upcoming trip home.  Oh, and I made a YouTube channel with someone I think you’ll all really like.  So stay tuned for that.

And I’m super pumped for this week because one of my dearest friends from Westminster, Jamie, is getting married!  So excited to be part of her special day. ❤  And it’s a short work week for me, so thank you, Jaim.

Back to the ‘Selections.’  I wish I could tell you I listened to some new music this past weekend, but considering it was Drake’s birthday on Saturday, that’s all I listened to.

I do have a Miguel video for you to watch if you haven’t already seen it.  Off his latest album Wildheart, he released the visuals for ‘Waves.’  SUCH a good song.  And the video is so vibrant, upbeat, and wild… just like Miguel.  J. Cole and Wale make cameos in it as well, just for a hot second, but still!  Dope to see other artists supporting one another.

And here is the video for Travi$ Scott’s hit ‘Antidote.’  While this video came out in the middle of September, I truly cannot stop listening to this song, so just thought I’d pass along the vid incase you haven’t watched.  The video truly takes place at the night show.  Watch below.

One more.  I heard this yesterday on the radio for the first time in a (very) long time.  The Kanye West remix to Lil Wayne’s ‘Lollipop.’  So good.  Please listen if you haven’t – it’s a banger.

That’s all for today.  Have a good one!
