Living 7 years in one of the centers of Mexican Catholicism (Guadalajara) influenced me in more ways than I probably realize In any case, the tradition of giving up some form of pleasure or temptation for Lent is something I didn't really do before I moved to Mexico. This is the second year that I give up a large part of my cyber-life during this time of year..And, as I said last year, although I give up the Art of the Mix (among others), I do not give up the art of the mix.What this tradition gives me as well is a chance to explore new (to me) artists and continue to feed my music jones. Here you have the result of these 40 days and 40 nights (though technically it was 46 since I didn't take the "free" Sundays that the Church allows) And, in some way, somewhat, somehow thematically-related in whatever genre struck my fancy..

This looks amazing. Many of my favorite artists, and I especially like the "Fiddler on the Roof" song breaking up disc 3.

Wow. A lot to digest here, and a lot of it looks really good. I don't take the Sunday freebies either.

Happily you were able to release all that pent-up Lenten mixing deprivation. I, too, cannot understand the concept of "Free Sundays," though my in-laws took advantage (I believe for the sweets).

I'll have to make some sort of penance before indulging in this enormous mix. Thank you for your sacrifice! 40 stars! ****************************************
