the times when i have no time to waste are the times when i waste time the most.
so today, in the midst of writing my past-due dissertation, i made a mix.  because apparently every time i have a stupid idea in the shower, i just run with it.
and here it is: all of the songs start with numbers, and none of the numbers can be spelled out (they actually have to be numerals).  i think it turned out reasonably well, considering.
you can click here to listen (it’s an 8tracks link so all of the stuff is gonna be out of order after the first listen…but it’s better than nothing; and you can download using the link below if it doesn’t disappear too soon).
track listing:
1. doves - 10:03 2. phantom planet - 1st things 1st 3. broken social scene - 7/4 (shoreline) 4. foals - 2 trees 5. kevin devine - 11-17 6. grandaddy - 12-pak-599 7. starflyer 59 - 20 dollar bills 8. discover america - 1986 9. colour revolt - 8 years (live at daytrotter) 10. azure ray - 4th of july 11. denison witmer - 24 turned 25 12. baby baby - $20 13. pinback - 3X0 14. modest mouse - 3rd planet 15. el obo - 2night 16. elliott smith - 2:45 am 17. alexi murdoch - 12
click here or on the picture to download.
…and remember: 20 dollar bills will never change your life.

i woke up yesterday with lfo’s “summertime girls" stuck in my head.  and before you do anything else in life, you should probably go watch that video…it’s full of interesting facts like "there was a good man named paul revere" and "billy shakespeare wrote a whole buncha sonnets."
anyway, i made this springtime mix as an apology to myself and the universe.  at first i just wanted it to be sugar ray’s “fly” 12 times in a row, but i’m saving that for my summer mix.
trackz:
1. toucans - oaxaca 2. metronomy - the look 3. bear hands - crime pays 4. why? - by torpedo or crohn’s 5. you can be a wesley - old in florida 6. foreign born - that old sun 7. phillip oskar augustine - internal combustion 8. toro y moi - leave everywhere 9. richard swift - lady luck 10. (the) tony castles - black girls in dresses 11. magic magic - squid hunt 12. ducktails - killin’ the vibe
click the picture to download.  or here.  or here.
dig it.
oh, and that’s a picture i took of my little sister’s dog.  what a goob.
