About Me

Legend has it I was conceived during the third side of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," so I've got that going for me. And apparently the first song my mother heard after I was born was the Beatles' "From Me to You," and you can't make that stuff up.

Favorite Songs

Your Party - Ween My Party - Kings of Leon Weed Party - Band of Horses Polka Party - Weird Al Yankovic End of the World Party - Medeski, Martin & Wood Life 'O' The Party - Prince Soul Shakedown Party - Bob Marley Soul Shakedown Party - Phish Trash, Trampoline and the Party Girl - U2 The Party's Crashing Me - Of Montreal And...naturally.... It's My Party - Lesley Gore

I think you might have picked up on a theme here.

Favorite Artists

The Wiggles. Oh, wait, you meant MY fav artists, not my 2-year-old son's. Then, I would have to say....the Wiggles.

Hey man, I am pretty sure I never sent you your June mix. Did I? If not, I'll send it along pronto! So sorry!

David

i was so late with my november mix that i ended up doing the december one early! So you should be seeing mail from me soon.

Arley

Kurt, your may mix is in my hands ready to go to the PO, and it's not even June yet! I think we have somewhat similar tastes in music, let me know if there are any outstanding tunes on this mix. Peace

Charlie

Kurt, I resent the Feb. Mixtape. It will arrive this week. Sorry for the delay. Charlie

Angela

Thanks again for the great holiday mix!

Katipai

hey there. i just sent off your november mix. but i kinda cheated and did november and december the same. so if you're mix says 12/07 it's not it's 11/07. hope you enjoy

Blaighnid

hallo i will be your june mix person

Meatbreak

Of Montreal is probably my No.1 album of '07 so far too. It's going to take something pretty far out to beat it. Still, Liars was my No.1 this time last year and that got knocked off by a world-beating album that should become legendary, so we'll see how this year pans out.

darren

no `in the city` or `strange town` by the jam? how about `city hobgoblins` by the fall.... `newtown` - the slits? great mix theme - I could spend all day thinking about this!

Cornelius

Muppets? My favorite band is the Riverbottom NIGHTMARE Band!

Ryan Mixtape

I like the new cover of the RIP mix. My girlfriend and I voted yours the second best CD packaging of all time (first went to a neuroscientist who wrapped her mix in an X-ray film of the human skull). I just sent you another copy of the broken mix I sent you in January. Rock that mile high ish!
