first off thank you all for your comments and feedback on my last post regarding politics. also, thanks for playing nice.
all of the comments were very informational and i'm hoping that over the next couple of months i will be able to make the most educated decision i can.
so earlier in the summer sissy and i were driving to canton from cleveland and she was going through the cd case in my car. i hadn't looked at it in ages because 1. i have sirius and 2. i have about a 5 minute commute to work and i don't really listen to much music in the car.
but that wasn't always the case - back in the day i was ALL about the mix cd's.
sissy decided that we needed to listen to my old mixes and it would be like a trip
down memory lane listening to all the songs.
she was right.
since our little car ride i have found myself listening to some of those old CD's more frequently. you know how you end up listening to mixes and or songs waaaaaaaaaaay too much and you need to just not hear the songs for a year or two till you love them again? well, i think i can listen to these songs again.
also, last week my west coast blogging FRIEND and i were chatting about early 2000's songs and how awesome they are (obviously) - i promised to share, and now i'm delivering.
this may very well end up a weekly feature for me - until i run out of old mixes at least.
so this first one was made on november 17, 2002 which is exactly what is written in sharpie on the disc.
i had recently finished college in may and i had just got home from a summer/fall of working on mackinac island in michigan - trying ever so hard not to grow up and get a real job. i was a bit of an idealist in those days, and this mix will always remind me the island and wrapping up college.
[i found all the songs on playlist.com except for a hip hop version of crash by DMB and a jimmy fallon you can't touch this song that i wish i could find on you tube to share but i can't, oh well]
this mix simply says May 2003 party mix in black sharpie on it.
i vividly remember making this mix while i was still living in canton. my mom was going out of town for the weekend and i was obviously going to throw a party. how very mature of me right?
well i hope a few of these songs made you laugh at my ridiculously random music taste. or you at least had a funny memory of dancing on a table screaming, "bringgggggggg. meeeeeeeeee. tooooooooooooo. liiiiiiiiife! wake me up inside!" i mean not that i have ever done that...
have a good thursday!
