The last in a three tape collection, along with "Pen and Paper Thin Dream" and "Walt Disney Cannot Make Me Happy," that were made in an attempt to turn my ex-girlfriend on to some of the best independent rock artists of today.

Also on this, the last album of the set, around the time David Mead's "Only in the Movies" starts, I purposely entered a realm of some of the most poignant songs I know, pretty much keeping that tone until the last two songs, which suddenly explode with energy once again.

The last track, Death Cab for Cutie's "Why You Want to Live Here," an anti-L.A. rant has a special meaning, as I was recording this shortly before moving to L.A.

great mix, but uh I wouldn't exactly call Ben Folds and Semisonic 'indie'
Yeah, I certainly wouldn't call them indie either. I probably wouldn't call Pete Yorn or David Mead indie either... but I still feel "indie rock" is by far the best way to define this series of albums.

i might call ben folds indie on the grounds that he works like a fiend and has begun to do more and more of everything himself! and he still doesnt get his clothes new-- noticed? this is a charming charming charming mix. if i'd gotten this at a random anonymous tape trade at a basement venue and went home to listen to it the same night, i would set off on a mission to find the creator who was definitely my soul mate. that of montreal song is SO good. and the Plan song! and the death cab song. and the ben song. and the elf power and the shins songs! holy crap... yeah. you get it. sorry to ramble.
