I mainly titled this "Crooked French Canadians" (a lyrical clip from the Decemberists track) because I was recently recounting my run-in with the disbelieving diabetic at the Canadian customs post-It. In other words, it has no significance.

This is a mix for Niks, which I gave to her upon arriving at long last for a visit to the city. It features a lot of good new-ish stuff, and some not so new but good-ish. It also involves a lot of cool women, which makes me smile!
Notes: thanks to Kat and the Garden State trailer for the fab Frou Frou track. Thanks to Tom Waits for writing another incredible song. And thanks to Jesus for appearing in the Promise Ring track, which is all-summer, all the time.

And thanks to Jesus for appearing in the Promise Ring track...that line almost made me shoot Dr.Pepper out of my nose in a fit of laughter. Grossness aside, you've a got a nice mix going there.
