it's almost 10am. three women just passed in front of my desk. they each had a baby strapped to the front of their chest in a tiny pack, looking like crazy reverse parachutes.
the last couple of days passed in a tornado of activity that i am only now getting to sit down, take some deep breaths, and recover from. 2 bands, 3 DJs, a symphony, 3 films, some laundry, and a little sleep. in the middle of all of this, i used a few restless, after-midnight hours to partake of a favorite pastime...no, not that...i crafted a mixed tape. i won't go into the philosophy of the mixed tape or how good it makes me feel while i'm doing it. for that, go rent high fidelity
. instead, here is a track list for all 120 minutes of sho' nuff goodness.
