Mixtapes

Singing in Tongues

Pretty lyrics I'll never understand

Summer of '05

Stuff I was listening to around 7/05 (Ryan Mixtape's challenge). Most of it is surprisingly annoying for me to listen to anymore because of countless plays. Oh well.

The State I'm In

Music that has currently consoled me during my post- graduation/job hunt phase.

Yummy. Songs To Salivate To

Culinary songs with a hint of eroticism.

A Soundtrack For My Unmade Movie

A mix of songs for the movie in my head

Thanks for the great mix!

I love your 'yummy' line up. Great idea. Seeing all that food made me hungry for something other than souls.

Erika

absoultly! I heard the song a year or so ago and I was nodding my head agreeing with every lyric. It's certainly a good song for those in limbo.

hey Karen! I'm pretty sure your the one who sent me the fantastic mix tape that's currently getting me through my work day. If not you and another girl named Karen are both post grad with the same musical taste. :) I was so excited to see Jamie Cullum on this, I adore him and twentysomething has been on my theme song list since I left college. Love it. Thanks a bunch. and your picture is grrreat :)

stumbled on the Yummy mix... not sure if you're a Blur fan but "Coffee & TV" is one of my favorite songs. perhaps i will have to make a yummy mix of my own, hmm...

Hello: Am glad that you enjoyed the 'anthems' cd, and that it wasn't too presumptuous for me to pontificate on americana from my vantage point in Melbourne, Australia! (They say that all great art is specific rather than merely abstract and general, but I suppose that we experience art/music/etc in the intersection between those two streams - the specific (or the regional - as in 'American') and the more universal.) Best --Howard

Got a favourite Velvet Underground song? If you're still depressed, I suggest the Coney Island song.
