Comment:

um, so work is boring. and so sometimes my mind wanders. and sometimes it actually creates something. note i did not say good or add any other type describe-y word. anyway this is groundhog day, and this is the point. i cm up with this idea. im sorry, "idea". every 3 months or so, i make another groundhog day mix. the same songs, minus two, and all in a different order, and all the discs looking the same, so that when i pick one up i wont know which is which. i get bored, ok. now, some mix critic types might say, "jab, i could do that with any one of your mixes, because you make basically the same mix every time anyway." and i would say, you know what? youre right. and this gives me the excuse to do it one more gooder. woo.

That's quite a challenge, one certainly worthy of the experimental tag. It's almost like the "stranded on a desert island" mix concept.

I find your methodology more interesting than the mix, though it is a good mix overall. Perhaps it would defeat the point of the exercise, but I'm curious: If you could make this mix only once (and I'm assuming this isn't the first of its kind that you've made), what would the ideal track order be?

It is an original concept to say the least. Do you ommit your 2 least favourite tracks on the cd & replace them with 2 you much prefer? If so would you have a completely different but ( in your opinion ) much stronger mix in your cd player two years from now?

Cool. By the way, here's the answer to your your question from the other day. HTML = HyperText Markup Language; in its simplest form think of little tags that control the formatting of Web displays. (Or, if you want to see the real thing, go to the top of your browser and click "View" and then "Source" or "Page Source.")
