I made my friend Peter a mix tape of really odd avant-garde/expiremental music.



He didnt even listen to it. He listened to 10 seconds of the first song, and shut it off for being too weird. Broke my heart

This one is lengthy but there's a nice mix in there. I must admit I laughed at the Mayer song even though I dig it. Haha

Before I started the whole marriage idea I was a hookup mix. Thats a remnant of the mix's more seedy past haha. In retrospect, Id rather see Even Now by Dashboard right there. It would probably work better

EDIT: and my mixes tend to be lengthy when I don't limit myself to 1 full CD. Even then I had to fill a whole 3 hour date so this one made sense. You should see my "hey make a mix for me to get me into the music you like" mix. Its like 100 songs long haha

Well, now that explains everything but that's the beauty of a mixtape, it shows the feelings you had at that moment. As time passes and you get exposed to more music you'll always want to edit certain things but then it wouldn't be the same. Haha
