A birthday mix, and I'm pretty proud of it despite the fact that my head is so obviously full of somebody other than the recipient. An aside: that's three uses of Metric's "Combat Baby" in a week. Does mix etiquette frown on such things?

There's "mix etiquette"? Why wasn't I informed? I know that there's "Indie Cred", that's a given; and this mix has it in abundance.

You can use a song as much as you like, if you ask me. There you're mixes, after all, made to suit you, not anyone else.

I think I have that problem, too...anyway, naw, that's a good Metric song. Keep on using it. Although frankly, I'm blinded by the beauty of a few other tracks on here, namely Mt. Goats, BLLT, Sufjan, and that aching Dylan cover. Expertly put together and full of goodies, this is
