Not a cassette, simply divided thusly to make the conversation easy on the eyes. I think the one on the left is a man, but perhaps that just because in my (limited) experience, he's always the one to do the leaving. It doesn't seem to be a hostile conversation, though, which is intentional on my part. When you gotta go, you gotta go, and you might as well do it in style. And there's no way more stylish than with a bunch of interconnected song titles.

Wow, did you actually follow the Descendents with Alison Krauss? That's a transition you don't see every day. Pretty cool.

Eep, Descendents then Allison Krauss? Yeah, that would be a little ookie. Fortunately, the order flip-flops back and forth between the two sides, so it goes Descendents --> Poe --> Allison Krauss. Much better.

Very, very, VERY nicely done. The tracks work rather well, and the conversation idea is flawless.
