the final cut
supermixtape DONE. Finally. Less than perfect, but good enough. And I ran out of blank discs, short just one or two, and refusing to buy anything over the next few days, this is a new awesome because now I have to rank my friends! Not really, but they will be temporarily directed to a shared grooveshark playlist instead.
Dear [Former Firm] Friends Who Made My Bcc List:
Congratulations! This means you will be receiving updates from me more frequently than you even want.
This also means you should have received a mix CD from me today** and I just wanted to provide some color on the track selection. Essentially, I am the cheesiest person on the planet, and these songs loosely reflect the course of my last five years from a youthful, never-worked-a-full-time-gig-before start through the learning, teaching, trials, tribulations, transitions, and dealing with all that brought me to who/where I am today. And further cheese: I specifically included a San Diego artist (Tom Waits) and ended with a Chicagoan. These are some of my all-time favorites, so I hope you enjoy them too.
**A few of you have no idea what I’m talking about, and this is because true to my procrastinating self, I left this CD burning project until the last minute and subsequently ran out of blank CDs. Refusing to purchase anything in the days before I commence the Great Road Trip, you should expect one in the mail in about two weeks instead – so sorry for my poor planning!
In the meantime, please enjoy the playlist on Grooveshark:
