Notes on a mix CD

I’ve participated in the MeFi CD Swap at metafilter for as long as I can remember. It’s old school fun and I always get a bunch of really great new music I’d have probably never have heard otherwise.

musicThis year I chose not to include a track listing with the CDs I mailed to my five other swappers. (If you already know all the tracks on a mix CD, what fun is it?) The CDs I received from everyone else all did include track listings, though, and I suppose it’s not fair to keep the details secret from them.

Here are the tracks I included on my mix this year:

  1. The Raiders March — Williams, John
  2. California Dreamin’ (The Mama’s En The Papa’s) — Scala & Kolacny Brothers
  3. Some Like It Hot — Club Des Belugas

  6. The Horizon Is a Beltway — Low Anthem, The

  9. Magdalena — Flowers, Brandon
  10. Two Way Action — Andrew Bird’s Bowl of Fire
  11. From a Buick 6 — Dylan, Bob
  12. Big Brown Eyes — Old 97’s

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
