(cross posted to my other cartoon blog thing that's basically hidden on my website and nobody reads)

Here's a mixed cassette tape (psych!) that I made, all on computer for you to give a listen. This is what I've been into lately. I think it's a good mix.

Although I think it is sort of neat when songs literally blend together (but, in the end, big whoop), I don't enjoy it so much when mixes that I download are one gigantic file. I'd rather have the individual tracks. So that's how I did this. I renumbered the tracks, though, so hopefully they will show up in your playlist in the correct order. And it's up to you to turn on the magical "songs overlap by a few seconds" feature, so you can feel like your very own skilled DJ!

summer playlist

I just now named it Material Sensations. It's hard to get a theme-read out of this. A few songs seem to be about the physical appearances, and the inaccessibility, of ladies. As a summer mix, it's mostly upbeat-ish. My favorite type of upbeat song, though, are ones with minor chord melancholishness running with the beats (featured prominently in Sabali and Both Ends Burning). And I ended things with some coming down songs. One is actually called Coming Down. I like when mixes end in this fashion.

That Material Issue jam has made my top 20 for the last um, 25 years. I remember singing it in my room at 12 years old, in my car at 17, at dance clubs at 25, and in the shower last week.

Wait a minute. Maybe I didn't get that from you. I thought you put it on your Spring Mix last year. But I'm looking at that mix, and I don't see it. curious...

There were several more people after you left who came up to the table and said "So this is the McGriddle zine that everyone is talking about!"

Well played, sir. You were truly the belle of the ball.

I was reading in the hallway at one point, and some people walked by discussing their Golden Girls buttons.

When I left I heard someone mention "mcgriddle..."

Hopefully people like the content as much as the cover and stuff.
