Bo and I were talking about making a mix for the weekend and gave me the inspiration for this. Most of the songs were dedicated to specific people, to highlight a memory I share with them. (For instance, during a past session of hanging out, I introduced my friend Eric to the Scissor Sisters by way of "Filthy/Gorgeous", and I knew he'd get a kick out of hearing it again.) I met a new friend that night, and coincidentally, he loves Fiona Apple ("Criminal" was one of the songs that I didn't have a person in mind for).

The only thing that I didn't like about this mix was that I had "White Orchid" in my head all night and again when I woke up in the morning.

The title comes from a stunt that the Fiona Apple guy performed: a cartwheel across the yard before careening into a rose bush. Ouch.

All in all, it was a fun mix for a long night of partyin'.

(Oh, and Bo specifically requested the Hanson song. Turns out the Fiona Apple guy loves Hanson even more.)
