IF YOU HAVE 36 MINUTES AND 16 SECONDS, I WILL GIVE YOU THE WORLD
Okay okay, that's not true... but I did make myself a Welcome Back present. Or, I made you all a You-Welcoming-Me-Back present (!) and I did it here. Not even an entire mixtape (err, muxtape) but a few songs that ride with me on the train. I had uploaded six before realizing my itunes bought tracks wouldn't work... so please bear with the repeat artists. A faux paus, for sure, but hopefully a forgivable one.
I should really be going to bed (a common theme lately for this temp worker) but I can't leave without giving credit where credit is due. To this guy.
Nathan Lee was in town! An old friend who some of you might remember from Forever Changed and Cool Hand Luke... we were able to catch up Saturday night and he reminded me of our old mix-sharing days.
Me: "I still have it on my computer - that Elbow song you included. It's been one of my favorites ever since."
Nathan: "(pause) ...didn't you end yours with UnderOath?"
Oh 2004. You were the days.
I included Elbow's "Grace Under Pressure" as my (not so) silent tribute to the man (COME BACK QUICK) and rumor has it that he reads this blog from time to time. Which means that if you beg him in the comments (or if I beg him right now), Mr. Lee might be willing to share a muxtape of his own. And actually, the invite is open to everyone. This could be fun.
Also fun? Memories:
Great memories. Goodnight everyone.
