Comment:

I've been promising my friend Jim a mix for quite a while now, and I've finally gotten around to making one for him. This is kind of all over the place. But he's got good, wide-ranging taste, so I know he'll appreciate it. The title is from the Magnetic Fields song.

You almost have to listen to this to hear how it works. Good effort, though.
