A while ago Pepsi had a promotion where certain soda caps could be redeemed for free song downloads on iTunes. Luckily, it was possible to tilt the bottle to see if the cap was a winner or not; I started collecting winners, got into iTunes, and downloaded a bunch of random songs I dug, all thanks to Pepsi. In return, I named the mix after them. :)

The songs were picked more or less randomly: just a bunch of tunes I liked by artists didn't quite like enough to buy a whole album. But as I sequenced the songs for CD, many of them fell into a strange sort of loose narrative; a vague story of rebellion in a post-apocalyptic sci-fi world ruled by corporate fascism. It helps that several tracks are instrumentals, and although there are a few songs that don't quite fit the "plot" lyrially, the music flows pretty well, and implies some sort of narrative, I think.
