Mixtapes

transatlantique danse partie

Half features this side of the Atlantic, while the other half the other side. All good for dancing.

clap your hands say yeah

8 songs about clapping, 9 about saying yeah.

new loves // old faves

Just a mix of good tunes, old and new.

unknowns

Songs randomly selected from albums that I hadn't yet gotten to know.

( )

Just a bunch of at-the-time favourites.

An MTA Soundtrack

It might be cheesy, making a fellow New Yorker a CD of New York songs... but I did it anyway.

ESL

This is when I feel dumb that I can't speak another language.

The End

This tracklist was inspired by the plight of those sad last tracks on a CD that just never get enough play; in other words, it's a tracklist composed of songs that are the last songs on the disc that are ALSO the best songs on the disc (in my humble opinion).

eh.

A collection of Canadians (except for Neko... well we've accepted her as one for a long time).

Jonathan

no problems kurt you now have another wonderful mix coming to you as i had allready gone out and posted it .the new one has a very brittish flavour,but i am sure a sophisticated new yorker will have no problems in bangin out these sounds and influencing his friends.will ryan be deactivating me? lets hope not.

Jonathan

Help me I'm an ex-pat trapped in a christian police state! When my wife and I traveled in Europe we put Canadian flags on our back packs and would only speak quietly to each other so no other 'Mericans would hear and gravitate towards us.
