Each week our ‘Friday Top Five’ segment, we feature five things we thought were interesting, notable, or culturally significant. This week we are showcasing stories on A-Trak and is all-new Rane Mixer, FKA Twigs drops a visually stunning video for Facebook X Olympics, we found a way to eat Chocolate and keep that beach bod, Phil Mickelson breaks the internet, and golf might have just gotten a little better thanks to the team over at Sandies.
Overview: Turntablists and A-Trak fans, this one’s for you. RANE and A-Trak announced their collaboration today: an A-Trak takes on Rane’s beloved Seventy mixer. It’s a limited edition battle mixer titled – you guessed it – the Rane Seventy A-Trak Signature Edition.
If you followed the site, followed me, been to my old condo, or headed to my current office. You will know not only am I an A-Trak fan, but am also a massive fan of his label Foolsgold Records and Turntable culture at large. The fact that he and his brother Dave1 (@Dave1 and @Chromeo) of Chromeo.

Story-3:: Chocolate X Fitness
Overview: If you have been following my Instagram (@ReedDailey) stories, you will know that there has been an uptick in the number of posts on fitness and the workouts being excited. If you have not been following me, pause listening/reading and go do that now. Once again (@ReedDailey on Instagram and Twitter). Alright, back to the point of this story. So being a massive chocolate fan, am always on the hunt for solid chocolate recipes that don’t crush my macros. Came across this no-bake keto dessert, peanut butter chocolate bars from the good people over at Two Sleever. One can only assume this means badass with tats on both arms, just saying. This weekend, the Dailey Blend Team will be making and consuming a ton of these bad boys!
Story-4:: Phil Mickelson X Calf Content
Overview: Phil Mickelson can't stop, won't stop making (funny) calf-related content. Yes, you heard/read that correctly. Lefty himself might very well be my favorite person on the TV/Web/in my life. This video is priceless and the fact that these are actually his calves makes it even funnier.
“After winning “Best Calves” for the 22nd straight year from the WCC (World Calve Committee) Amstel Light is celebrating with these bad boys”
