Shit, man, don't disappear. come to St. Louis tonight for the Steve Earle acoustic show at the Pageant.Seriously, though, the desperation in your song titles makes for one hell of a mix. Sorry about the real-life stuff though.

Sorry to hear about hell week, I can definately realte (I'm guessing most of us can, on some level). This is quite the mix for musical catharsis, though. Hope thinks get better for you.

Oh shit, dude. So, so sorry, my friend. Beck->Neil Young is totally heartbreaking. (that Neil song, especially. my GOD). What Terry said.

I know EXACTLY how you feel... My life has also fallen apart and gone to hell this month, but I do hope, for our sake, that it'll somehow pick itself up again and find it's way back to something better... Normality has never sounded more appealing... :/

Take Good Care<3

Welcome to the club! It's a very exclusive, yet very underground club. In order to enter, you have to suffer deeply... and then look for some easing of that suffering in music.

Luck and good vibes to you. And I swear to god, if I ever have occasion to duplicate this mix... no matter how good or apt it may be... I'm coming after you!

Anthony... life is full of good times and bad times, ups and downs. Cycles. We all got em. Your up cycle is around the corner. Making these great mixes will help keeping you from disappearing in the meantime.

Anthony, great mix but don't take it too seriously. Remember, even though Neil wrote

"When you see me
Fly away without you
Shadow on the <things you know
Feathers fall around you
And show you the way to go
It's over, it's over."
He also wrote

"Hold back the tears,
And keep on trying.
Just around the next corner
May be waiting your true love."

If you were to disappear from here there would be a big hole.

I hope everything turns for the better, and it will, quickly. Mixes can easily help flush out the pain. I hope yours work. It's fantastic, bro.

Know what you mean. Had a similar week, then just when you think the darkness is over there's a handbasket parked in the driveway.

at least you've got a great mix to show for it - not much consolation at the moment, I'm sure, but the mix will outlast the shambles.

In the midst of it all you were able to make this mix. Every song hewn from similar depths... Life may indeed be awful and seem unbearable at times; the alternative is just pointless. Whilst you are capable of making such a mix and empathising with such musical excellence, there is always something to look forward to. Always...Your mix is confirmation of this. I wish you well.

Wow - great mix, heart-rending. And I don't envy you being in that space, though I'm glad you're at least able to use whatever's going on for good mixin. Here's hoping you're putting together a mix of sunshine and lollipops sometime soon.

anthony. i know the feeling -- as expressed in your comments & as expressed in these songs. heart. breaking. but sometimes wading in some pain as expressed through guitar strings and voice cracks can strangely lift you out of the worst part. anyway, i hope you feel better and this mix is beautiful.

Anthony, I'm so sorry to hear your life has taken an unhappy turn. I sincerely hope it starts getting better before long... your pain has crafted a uniquely lovely mix. Keep mixing, it really helps and is a wonderful source of catharsis.

I hope you're doing better, sorry I missed this earlier. I agree with all below; it's really as good as a mix gets.
