IMP: Bringing People Together

2007-02-15 12:51:53

Mixtapes

Drankin'

This month's mix is all about the tasty adult beverages.

Random

The title speaks for itself.

19 Songs that Rock mah Wurrl...

These are basically just songs I'm stuck on at the moment.

HAPPY B-DAY AMERICA!!

In honor of the birth of the greatest nation in the universe, I have compiled a mix of songs highlighting some great things about the US and A. Since we are the nation where more is more, I supersized this month's happy time fun mix!

Catharsis

The past couple of months have been tumultuous for me, to say the least. These are the songs that have brought me through some of the hardest things I have had to endure thus far. They almost tell the story itself if you listen closely.

Bonnaroo Traveler

In honor of my impending trip this summer, I put together a mix of this year's Bonnaroo artists. I also included a few tracks by non-Bonnaroo artists that I currently can't live with out for poops and giggles.

December Mix

Another random sampling of what I was listening to at the time.

Happy Thanksgiving!

My very first mixtape for IMP!! The idea is pretty simple really...just a random sampling of what I was listening to at the time.

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEYYY!

Super cool, super chill

Angela: Don't know if you're still active on IMP (hard to tell the dates). I've been away for awhile as well, but regardless....up for a side trade?

Trish

dear Angela Im still game for a side trade. My email is trishmull77@comcast.net

Trish

Hi Angela Beauty of a Poem but selling your first borm to see led zep? The greatest band was and always shall be THE BEATLES! iF YOU EVER WANNA DO A SIDE TRADE FEEL FREE TO SWING BY AND DROP ME A LINE ON MY PAGE.TRISH

Carly

Ah!! I'm so excited!! Congrats, bytheway. Hope it all went well. Here's my address: cstorts@uark.edu. But seriously, what the hell does "pdq" mean? Haha.

Kevin

Hey, thanks! I love the Dec. Mix! Any chance I could also get a tracklisting? (I adore the Pavement cover!)

David

Hey, Southern Gul. Will you be playing music to your bebe through your belly button? Will you stimulate him/her with DeBarge? Charlene Carter? Rob Zombie?

Christine

haha. i'm convinced that everyone is a dork on the inside. some people just let it out a bit more than others, which ultimately, makes them more entertaining in my opinion ;).

Christine

so when i'm bored, i randomly click around this site for no good reason. this generally proves quite entertaining... and the point is, your poem about making a new IMP friend is awesome and i had a nice little chuckle over it. :o)

David

Hey, c'mon now. Attacking our back bacon is hitting below the belt. We don't have much to call our own (hockey, snow, William Shatner); so let us have the peameal, please. I mean you guys have pretty much cornered the beef industry; can't we keep the pork? That reminds me, we had a very funny band called; "Corky and the Juice Pigs"; I'll send you a song.

Patrick

hola chica, que going on? i forgot about this venue of communication. after just driving across canada (from east to west), i will concur what space man said, "eastern canada is sketchy". in eastern canada's defense, though, i found almost all of canada to be pretty sketchy. it was one of the few times in the past 15 yrs that i've actually had what the bumper stickers call, "american pride".

Alan

I love my mix! The Avett Brothers track is gorgeous. I'm going to have to hear some more of them. Thanks a ton! Later, Alan

David

I am......ashamed.....to let you know that an East Coast Canadian(and where in Canada he's from will be important later) crematorium worker was charged recently with sticking a few corpses in his backyard shed because he couldn't afford the gas bill or something.............. In my Province's defence, people from the East Coast of Canada are a little sketchy to begin with; I have two Aunts living there and I'd watch my wallet around them.

Carly

woo hoo! let me know when all the aches and pains kick in. the fun is about to begin...but its alllll freaking worth it. it is until your kid starts to talk back and/or poop all over you....haha.

Erica

So what did you think? Was it in tune with your summer by any chance?

Carly

CONGRATULATIONS!!! How far along are you?! How exciting!!

Carly

Facing the sun, like all good sunflowers do. How are you my little muffin-top!? I have a kid, right? And I just messaged this group called "Baby Loves Disco" and am trying to get them to come to Fayetteville. They hijack (with permission) a local club and triple-clean/baby-proof it and parents and kids come and wiggle around to everything from "The Who to the Wiggles to AC/DC to Curious George." OK OK so ANYWAY, if it ever comes this way, you should kidnap a kid or bribe a little cousin into coming with you and we can go dancing like crazy monkeys. OK?! Ok. That's my latest musical venture. OH and I'm going to start "teaching" music at a pre-school next week. Ooooh, its going to be hilarious.

David

Same thing. And just in case you're wondering why it is I have so much time to talk about bacon.....I'm on vacation this week.

David

Yes, a ham by any other name......and speaking of other names; heard of peameal bacon? Back bacon? It's all pork, to me.

David

I stand (well...actually... sit) corrected. I shouldn't have lumped you in with Georgians. If it's any consolation, we get the same treatment. To most people in the South (and to me your entire Country is in the South), Canada is one big belt of snow from British Columbia to Newfoundland and all we say is; " sorry for having health care, eh!!!".

Lisa

i just received it! thank you so much!! nice work :)

Kathlyn

You're mixes are awesome! Just thought I'd pass along the compliment.

Jennie

Received your mix! I'm a fan of a lot of the artists you had so I enjoyed it. A new one for me was Xavier Rudd's "The Missing." I really like his sound.

David

Keeyyyy Rissttt! Ran out of room. It continues; " Is that what you call your selves Arkansans? I'm sure it was some lackadaisical Arkansan postie who leisurely delayed the cd. I mean wasn't it an Arkansan cremetorium worker who lazily threw a bunch of corpses in the backyard a few years ago? Really, if that's your State's employee's work ethic, I rest my case.

David

How do Miss Angela: As a matter of fact, "eh" slides into my patois with no thought whatsoever. Cliche tho' it is (and as one of our famous beer commercials says so eloquently)...I. Am. Canadian. And Canada is spelled; "C-A-N-A-D-eh? Being a Southern gal, I assume your equilvalent is using the word; "y'all" a lot? Would I be right in assuming this? Or would I be making an "ass" out of "u" and "me"? By the by, considering the fact that I haven't sent the replacement CD to you yet; you have actually received the first wayward CD I mailed...let's see...about a month ago!!!! What the fuck!!! I could have walked it down to Arkansas quicker than that!!! How the hell did that happen? Did some Canadian postal worker tear open the package, give it a few leisurely listens and then nonchalantly send it on it's way when he was done? I doubt it. Canadian postal workers are notoriously anal. I'm sure some lackadaisical Arkansan (is that right? Is

Carly

Freakin' chuckleheads. I have tried leaving you two messages and they keep getting eatin' by the little people that live inside the internet. Those fatsos. Not that I have anything against fat people. My message went something like this (in response to your last message)... Sam Walton is dead?!

David

Hey, Hey!!! It finally arrived. Yippee!!! I do so love getting music in the mail. I've only had a quick listen on the way to work this morning, but it sounds good so far. I especially like the Amny Winehouse and Cat Power tracks. Thanks so much. I'll get another cd off to you tomorrow, so if you don't get it by the end of next week or abouts, let me know.

David

I haven't received your's yet. When did you send it? Clearly, however, you should have received mine by now. I sent one to Australia the same day and she got it yesterday. So, I will send you another one this week.

Tanya

Hey there lady, thanks for the comments. I do my best. It's amazing to me how many people don't BOTHER to say a word about anything I send them. It's somewhat disheartening! I mean, damn it, say SOMETHING! I'm starting to think that everyone hates my mixes! Gah! Yes, I'd LOVE some goodness from the South. Hopefully the mailman will be able to bring it to me through all those bears and snowdrifts people seem to think we have year round. Look me up in my profile - contact info should be in there.. :)

David

Hey, congratulations on your nuptuals!!!!

Erica

Hey there! Sorry you haven't received your mix for this month yet... I can assure you, it's on it's way, will just be a bit late! THANKS & ENJOY :)

David

Okeley, dokeley.....does that mean the one I sent you finally arrived?

David

No, eh? Well that's......disconcerting......if you don't get it in this week, let me know and I'll send again.

David

Howdy Hey!!! Did you get that thing I sent you?

Carly

How's it hanging...ifyouknowwhatI'msaying. Are you keeping the good ole LR in line?

David

All rightly then.....my email is dhaw@persona.ca. Email me and we can trade snail mail addresses. Yee haw!!!!

David

Hey Lady.....want to side trade?????

Kristina Pia

guess what? thanks!!

Kristina Pia

it's fine. really really. i'll hit green before the 15th and will let you know when you're here. looking forward,

Douglas

yours is going out tomorrow, sorry for the delay!

Alan

Oh awesome! Glad you like it! :)

Kristina Pia

ohh don't worry i won't tell on you. soon!

Steven

Angela, I hoe you get to read this. I am having trouble on posting a note on your blog. As some of you know my dad died on Feb 27, 2007 and my mom(his wife of forty three years) myself, and my wife witnessed his death. It was a peaceful event and no one should be afraid of dying. Skip forward two weeks and we are face with my moms challenge of living with terminal cancer of the breast, lungs, liver and spine. I am hpoing to find some strength out of these events. Back at work. I have returned to work after a mentally grueling 5 days of care for my mom who is living with terminal breast cancer. Being the son who will ensure my moms wishes are met is challenging and exhausting. Mom is in as good as spirits as the situation would call for and I am along for the ride. Just like my dad's recent death I will ensure mom has a quality of life and is as pain free as possible. She has the best care to assist her medically and spiritually. Mom

John

hey angela, i think it's because i'm the baddest mofo around: http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Dillinger : ) anyone who loves "in the aeroplane" is allright by me ! cheers !

Carly

God I miss our over-enthusiastic banter. I'll be back in the game soon enough. Big changes are going on for me so I've had my head up my ass (not in a good way) for a while. I'd be a kiwi! I had to google the pinwheel thing. I don't remember that. But I did a lot of drugs as a kid.

Ian

have fun at the 'roo!

David

Ya know, you have some sweet skills. I consider the ability to do the "banana-bana-bobana" thing to be an under- appreciated plus. I can't do it. Neither can I do the clover-leaf tongue thing. Or take my bra off from inside my shirt (obviously). I guess there isn't a male version of that is there? Other than removing tighty-whiteys without taking off your jeans. Actually I think that's impossible. And probably illegal in some of your Southern states.

Patrick

nice van. looks like a real piece. reminds me of my first ride...the "shaggin' wagon" (although it was a moving van and not technically a wagon...and i never actually shagged in it unless you count a little "just the tip"...but whatever, it rhymed). anyway, looks like a sweet mix (and line-up at bonnaroo). wanna trade for a "memory lane"? i've been dissed the past two months and am craving a mixtape (someone elses mixtape that is). what do ya say?

Douglas

Hi, I'd love to trade you for the Bonnaroo Traveler mix.

David

I can't say I have as fond a memory of that song. I put it on the last mix I sent out only because it stands out so strong within the 20 year period I refer to in the mix. I heard that song ad nauseum one summer when working in Edmonton. Over and over and over again. It was inhuman, the number of times that song played on the radio that summer. But I'm glad it's a warm memory for you.

David

No, no. I'm not going to be baited into having Toto running through my head for the next week and a half...cripes!!! Too late. I only imagined it and it's already started. Blast you!!! Okay, you asked for it. "Elvira" by the Oak Ridge Boys. "My heart is on fire...for El-vi-ra". Now listen to the deep- voice Oak Ridge Boy going; "giddy- up...oom...pappa...omm...pappa...mow-mow"...in the background. Try to shut it out. Just try.

David

Hey, you know who Charlene is!!! I'm impressed. Strange isnt' it? It's a song sung from the viewpoint of a world weary gal who's "seen some things.." talking to a bored housewife who wishes she had a more exciting life. But the gal who walked the "dirty-side-of-the-curb" actually missed out on the really important things (like having been to.....me). And here I am, a lonely astronaut living vicariously through your posse's wild gun-fueled drive-by. Isn't it ironic? Don't cha think.

David

Hey, Angela...it looks like you, Matthew, Holly and Maggie were all in the same car (Corrina's?) the day someone ran over Emily and her bike. What happened? Did Marc's Jiffy Lube sign throw you off? Or did that other Mark guy try to car-jack you? And Nora's looking awfully calm in the backseat for a hit and run.

Alan

I know who you're getting a mixtape from in April...

Carly

YOU and your LOGIC! What's your favorite fruit?

Carly

Do you copy&paste your password in? Or is there some 'change password' feature I'm missing? HAPPY BELATED ST. PATTY'S DAY!!

Tanya

Thanks for the compliment. When I lived in Japan I ended up getting dressed like a Geisha for a day - talk about a beauty regimen. I could NOT do that everyday! It was a lot of fun though! Hmm.. I'll have to check her out ..

Tanya

1) I have a belt buckle that's red glitter with a picture of the Fonz on it. I LOVE that belt buckle. 2) My last name is Kearney. LOL.

Carly

Haha, also. In response to Patrick's story. I concur. When in doubt, Google it. I've saved myself from plenty of embarassing trips to the ER by just calming myself and reading online posts. I know the interconnectedness of the world wide web and the public opinion can be pretty dangerous and stupid-inducing, but isn't it also a bit heartwarming? If we are going to cure our bloodied, broken nose by douching it with a mixture of salt water and PGA, at least we go down together. I've never done that. I just wanted to use the word 'douche' in a comment on your page. Ha.

Carly

Lovely girl! I've obviously been MIA. I had to take care of some mafia business. You know how that goes... I missed you. I think its very hilarious that there is a discussion going on about anal beads. Maybe we can write a joint article about it. We are probably going to have to connect it to music somehow. That might be hard. Actually even if he would, I don't think Ryan SHOULD let us get away with that kind of nonsense. We have to draw some kind of line somewhere...for the sake of something.... How are you? How's your health?

Patrick

Actually, i nearly died laughing, but it wasn't my arm. i was the one administering the wiskey and duct-tape in my kitchen. meanwhile, other less rational witnesses were googling "crazy glue + deep arm gash". the duct tape turned out to be a good thing in the end, b/c when devo finally did go to the ER the next morning, when the nurses removed it, the cut was ripped back open and they had a fresh wound to work with...thus the lovely scarring. feel free not to answer this, but have you ever actually used anal beads? i don't see how they could possible be that cool...even for people who like stuff up their ass. then again, i guess it is one of our more sensitive spots. sounds like a slippery slope to me though. i mean if you find out that 1 bead (the gateway bead) feels good, it's only a matter of time before you've got a fricking string of pearls up your bum. and it's not long after that before you get something stuck up there and you're forced

Ryan Mixtape

Hey Angela. Sorry about the delay. Could you please e-mail me the name of your February 2007 recipient. I'll follow up immediately. Thanks!

Carly

I don't believe in marriage (not until I'm 90 years old anyway). But I do believe in Hawaii! Let's dooo it!

Carly

(You know the drill. Bottom one first) the stuff I've said about them on here. Anyway.) would come and play/live with us. Eventually all the intelligent music- lovers in the US would get jealous and move to be near us and our superiority. And THAT is how we will ultimately rule the world: through music and our striking good looks. All because of Bertha and her medicated jewelry. Thank you Bertha. You are one screwed up lady, but you are still in prison and we aren't. Word.

Carly

I seriously thought I'd already commented in reply to your saucy tale of imprisoned love affairs. Basically, HOLY CRAP. I have a whole new respect for your imagination. It has inspired me to walk the straight and narrow. I don't think I'll ever be ready for the kind of love Bertha intends to give me (or anyone). I'm just no man enough. Or maybe I'm more of a big Bertha than Bertha is, and I counter! I'd slap her with a copy of the SCUM Manifesto (which I always keep a copy of whilst in prison, don't ask where its hidden, you don't really want to know) and then run like crazy! Then I would probably call you. And you would come get me and we'd go to Mexico and build a commune. And all our favorite musicians (ahem...Ben Nichols possibly? Did I tell you I slept on Lucero's loft floor one time? Long story. Ben never came home from the show, of course. He's probably booked for weeks, if you know what I mean. I hope to God they never read the

Sean

No... you leesten to me, my underage bichon!

Carly

My imagination always has some profanity in it. Its hard to keep it rated G. Luckily, I didn't drop the soap...or get arrested. But we did dance until we threw out our hips. And there was some other stuff, but it was more like PG13, so I'll save it. However you should NOT save, but share, the "lady prison" story. I'm pretty sure it could somehow be the greatest comment yet on this page. Glad you came and went safely. -----------Looking for a link to give you regarding local music fare------------Still looking---------Hating the internet--------OK! http://www.myspace.com/thedeliciousbasement That's the little, weird venue that I haven't been to. But its probably worth visiting if its convenient. Ok! I'm off to see the Wizard!

Steven

Angela, Just wanted to let you know to be sure and check out the whole article on the home page about Steve and I. You may have already seen it, but it called Love, Marriage, Mixtapes: A Musical Yin and Yang. At the end is a great picture of us I'd like you to check out. I was intitially concerned about bearing my soul in such a public way especially after it was so hard to make the CD and say those things to Steve...things he never knew about me even after 15 years. Keep in touch and may good things come your way. Kim Wright

Steven

Angela, Kim and I are honored you are enjoying your mixed tapes. I am at work listening to my wife's cd and it fills with emotion. Thank-you for the comments and Kim and I will keep our IMP friends updated with our struggles. In life we are individuals but we all have a common thread. Keep your self well, positive, and happy. Blog or e-mail us back if you want. Steve and Kim Wright

Carly

Yea! We are pretty! It IS too bad we couldn't meet up, but I work for the Man on Friday nights. Actually, I import exotic animals for the mafia. Okay, that's a lie. I wish it was true. I'd hook you up, since we are IMP sisters and all. And too bad you couldn't stay longer. Tomorrow (Sat) night I'm throwing a bachelorette party. Pinatas, wang shaped cakes, and busting a move to the Michael Jackson(old school)/James Brown/The Faint/PFunk/Etc Etc Mix. I'm hoping none of us escape the night without a criminal record. Maybe its better you went back to LR so soon...we'll get arrested together later. There's plenty of time! Hope you had fun in Fayetteville!

Carly

Dang it. It must have cut my genius, never again, super awesome, Nobel prize winning comment-ending off. Oh well. I was going to say that someday IMP should have a convention or festival or adult-chaperoned function. And then I suggested we should get a billionaire to sympathize with our cause because it would be hard to wrangle us all in. I'll make a pinata for it. I'm excellent at pinata-making. Its pretty much my only natural talent.

Carly

Is it too soon to tell you I love you? Maybe so, but I'm throwing caution and good sense to the wind! I promise I won't start mailing you underwear or anything. Ha. Yes the Oompa Loompas were a little...well they are a lot of things. And most of those things were creepy. I mean, who the heck has a song for every disaster that ever occurs! Its like they PLANNED for Violet to turn into a giant blueberry! Its like they WANTED it to happen! Soooo wrong. Oh man I want to hit a festival super baaaad. We used to have on up here The Great Unknown, but after a couple of years they shut it down (due to funding maybe). Bonnaroo, maaan. Someday, I'll be there. My daughter is still tiny, so when she's older I'll feel more free about things. I want to hit up Burning Man too, but I'm not sure how live music-centered it is. But I don't care, I'm a major art-junky. And, of course, a music junkie obviously. Like the rest of us IMPers. Someday IMP should have

Ryan Mixtape

OK, so kind words from pretty girls who write poems for their new mixtape friends are totally the cat's, as far as I'm concerned. Really, it's great to see people hitting it off so well! Keep up the scintilation, and keep checking on the new mixes -- I should have a newbie posted by the end of this weekend.

Carly

Haha since I've already said too much: I agree with the sigh-inducing Ben Nichols. Though I have to say Roy ties with him (for personality) but my favorite was their once- guitarist Todd Gill (from the Paper Hearts too). He always reminded me of Willy Wonka. In a somehow attractive way...

Carly

Deal! There's a fairly good "underground" pulse up here. There is this one place, The Delicious, that is just the basement of someone's house and they get much more cultural shows than the main drag usually does. I'll reread your favorite music list and give you a heads up on anything I hear that I think you'd like. I used to live in Conway (going to UCA) and we'd hit Vino's (probably just for the calzones). Somehow I never made it to Juanitas. I've been out of touch with the LR scene for a few years now. I'll find the info for that basement venue and give it to you. Sorry my comments are so freaking long. I'm the least wordy person in my family too...haha.

Carly

Yes ma'am! I'm in good ole Fayettenam. I saw your profile a few days ago and noticed the Lucero show, which made me suspicious of you. But then I forgot to comment. So I'm glad you did. I last saw Lucero on Dickson and they were playing a Paper Hearts reunion show. It was freakin' awesome.
