Comment:

This is the first CD of the 'Artificial Dissemination Project'. I'm leaving three copies in 1)the public library, 2)a grocery store and 3) not sure yet, probably a local Kinkos. I've made sleeves with an email addy for comments and hopefully I'll get around to making a website to track them, too.
BTW I totally stole this idea from someone else whose mixes I was checking out here.

Thanks! The title is lifted from an essay by Tom Magliozzi. He and his brother do an NPR call in show called Car Talk, and they're often damn funny, and sometimes strikingly philosophical.

So, they ACTUALLY ended up at 1) a local restaurant 2) grocery store and 3) a coffeehouse.

The coffeehouse one ended up in the lost and found twice before I just took it and put it outside on bench.

I have yet to hear from anybody regarding them though.

I think maybe next time I'll go with places that cater to a younger crowd, near the college or something.
