me, age 12, uncensored

my mixtape playlists transcribed (scroll down…for a very long time). i emailed this to myself when my parents moved in 2005 (and i had to pack up my childhood), just uncovered it oddly w/ an “impossible is nothing” gmail search. this covers 1994-1997, which is when i think i moved onto mix-CD/Rs. and damn! i didnt copy those. i used to so neatly write the song names on the discs.

most embarrassing item i spy? ina commoze “hot stepper”? no. omc “how bizarre”, now fighting for the top spot on my “worst pop songs ever” list (rivals: blink 182 “all the small things” and that “who let the dogs out” song and len “steal my sunshine”). let me make a mix CD of that, hahaa. i will drop this bomb in your mailbox/folder when you’re having a bad day and this will remind you someone else in the world stupidly loves that music, and you will instantly feel better about yourself.

and my friend just sent me this a minute ago, when i sent her this list first:

it’s like they’re in my brain. except, i love some of those too.
