Comment:

i made this for fellow AOTMer Patrick C. Taylor at some point last year and fully intended to get it to him then, but life gets in the way sometimes. i'm moving halfway across the country soon and was packing some stuff a while ago and found this mix so he finally has it and i can post the tracklist to it. i don't know, man, i feel like i am so bad at making mixes now because i am so unreceptive to new(er) music; i'm still stuck on stuff that was released ten or fifteen years ago and i can't get over how amazing it all is, sometimes i feel like i just need to catch up but i'll never have the time or the money to buy all of the amazing music that exists. i am doing the best that i can. the title comes from the tullycraft song.

I really really dig this. Love your title track as well as 2,5,9,11,16,18,21,22,25,26, and 27. Keep on being "bad" at making mixes.

I understand what you mean by stuck on stuff from a certain era ( I have been stuck in the '60s) but by doing that you miss an incredible amount of other music. This same applies to different genres. "Make new friends but keep the old, One is silver and the other is gold".

Indie Rock, indeed. Examplary compilation, here.

Hey, why does your mix for me get so many more comments than my mix for you?!Loved the mix, the girl block of songs at first, then the boys' block, then the more eclectic stuff at the end. You managed to hit on a bunch of bands/musicians that I've meant to check out.And I love that "Box Elder" cover! One of my favorite Pavement songs.

Sorry Patrick, but I guess ash is a little more popular ;) Great mix! I've made a couple mixes for Mr. Taylor myself, but this is out of my league.
