Comment:

This is not my doing. This mix was actually posted a long time (years) ago by Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy lyricist/bassist) on his livejournal in an entry about him missing his someone special. An entry that I copied over, assembled, burned and still listen to when I'm lonely. His journal and subsequent entry, to my knowledge, are no longer in existence or I'd link you to them, but ... you'll just have to take my word for it. He said, and I quote: "Burn. And Play. Repeat play. In The Dark."
Him posting this was my first introduction to the bands; Kent (swede pop), Now It's Overhead (kooky emo), and Damnation AD (recently reunited hardcore). They've all grown into some of my personal favorites. Also, as far as the mix itself is concerned ... Timeless. To me, every song's a gem, and that fact alone makes this mix timeless. I tried to post this last night when I was wracked with this crushing bout of longing, missing my own someone special that prompted me to break out this mix and listen to it to soothe myself. But I couldn't. Thankfully my Internet Service Provider was MIA all night so my super pathetic/ultra needy 'miss you, wish you were here, blah blah suburban yearning, blah, blah blah,' e-mails remain unsent. Even though the longing peaked at about four this morning and has started to recede, I still feel like I have to post this and link my special someone to it. It's almost like it is evidence of ... what I'm not sure, but it's proof none-the-less.

I really like the looks of this one ... and it's a good story as well. A word of caution, though, on listening to too much Morrissey when you're feeling down.

Well, despite including 2 of The Smiths most miserable songs I think I'm going to have fun listening to this - thanks for the link.. And What a closer!
