Comment:

This is a mix for the purposes of sending a friend a book that I promised I'd send him and I had to include a mix cd. This friend...he and I have been through a lot of the same things but he's further away from them than I am, right now. And I'm happy for him but we are growing more distant due to the spaces in our lives that are filled up with other things and people. And this mix is supposed to be fun and obscure and startle him and make him remember how he is yin and I am yang.

I understand your reliance on the Decemberists for modern sea shanties, but your Flight of the Conchords selection is absolutely awesome.

Well done.

Woah. Wrong comment, wrong mix. But now that I'm here... It's hard to tell where you are and where your friend is from the mix. That's a deeply personal thing and hard to convey so don't worry about it. But you do have a well varied selection which is good. I like the use of covers for a concept like this.
