Comment:

hmm, well with cliff, alex & derek - among others - slowly making their way back to the site, i guess i'll follow up. i really, really hope the site gets back to perfect health sometime soon, & the interaction through comments on our past mixes are somehow restored...

heart-stoppingly, chest-crushingly, slow-as-molasses, crawlingly sad songs for winter & the opportunity it provides to stay in bed & sulk. partly for me, to keep me sane, & partly for my frie nd irene, because i owe her a mix & made it with her in mind. it's not quite time for moonlight on snow & sub-zero temperatures outside just yet, but it always is in my head. title from the pen of mr. molina.

you can listen to it here, sans the space: http://www.se ndspace.com/file/mo68tg

Borrowed Tune is one of my favorite Neil tunes and I'm sure fits in
perfectly on this, thanks for the okkervil river and I am really happy to see you again. Listening yesterday, I really liked the Microphones track and the glen hansard & markTta irglovß, besides the artists you know I already love.

Ooh, just my cup of tea, I believe. Speaking of which, tea would probably fit quite well in with listening to this...

My favorite Leonard Cohen song, and like the Elliott Smith, Neil, and Neko. Been digging the Microphones/Mt. Eerie lately too. This looks excellent, Anthony...

You'd won me over by the time I saw the first track. Nice one Anthony. Makes me think a snowfall wouldn't be a bad thing. Man what a hard time I had getting the site to accept my vocabulary!

beautiful stuff here, anthony. especially liked the Damien Jurado and Microphones tracks. remind me to tell you about the time I rented videos to Damien Jurado at the store where I worked. well, that's actually the whole story. consider yourself told. hope the sun comes out soon in that snowy head of yours.

funny how the winter has such an effect on us that we crave songs like this. i'm on my way to downloading and i'm sure i'll enjoy it.

Gorgeous. Lovely o pener and Neil pick, and your penultimate track is one of my twenty favorite songs of all-time. Re: the closer, apparently great minds (again) think alike (look near the conclusion of my latest mixed-genre mix). *grin*

OK, dude. Now that I figured out how I could comment on here again, I just wanted to come back here and say how much I fucking LOVE this mix. Easily, one of my favorites from you. That Jason Molina song tears me apart every time I hear it. The Nick Cave->Neil Young->Okkervil->Neko stretch is simply amazing, man.
