Ran out of space, all the songs and samples are on the first side of this cassette. (i.e. - side 2 song 1 = side 1 song 31) --------
Title: this will be a present for father's day this sunday. I think it's more for me though. I've been wanting to do something like this for ages, like, songs that make me feel like how I feel whilst reading Coupland, but this is how it came out. Sorry the paraphrased sections of the audiobook parts aren't clear but..mneh. The narrative is mainly based around Karla & Dan. I listened to the full 3 hours of tape trying to find bits I like. It was pretty tiring, and finding songs/parts of songs to reflect the mood didn't work very well so I think towards the end, the samples and songs become less correlated, slightly. I'd like to trade with other Coupland lovers.

Douglas Coupland is a mediocre, overrated writer.

IMO Douglas Coupland is an interesting, smart and under-rated writer.

Might be interesting to apply this mix idea to Coupland's "Girlfriend In a Coma". Very original concept, and very well done. Cheers! -Famous.
