This week’s effort was a real mess. Somewhere along the line I screwed up the file structure of how I build and track mixes. Would have been quicker to just start a new playlist than fix this one. It’s a strange thing to look at your own work and not know what a previous version of yourself meant by it.
Missed a couple weeks there for mundane reasons. Nothing untoward, just not enough time to pull something together and then not at the computer on Friday to post. If you feel put out by two empty weeks, let me know. Maybe I can do something special to make it up to you.
Last week I came into a surprise treasure trove of old new stock cassette tapes. Like 60 of them. Some good ones too. So, if you pine for the days of tape hiss, let me know and just maybe you’ll get a good old fashioned mixtape in the mail (providing you vouch that you have a working tape player). Also in that box was an unopened 5 Pack of minidiscs.
There is hope in the air. It’s a nice change of pace even if there are many miles left to go.
I fear that once I make a safe return to public interaction that the first few people who humor me (or feel trapped by Minnesotan Conversational Conventions) will have to endure me talking way too much and way too fast followed by random overwhelmed tears. Not sure how to avoid this, but I am aware of its probability.
In general terms I’m getting punchy. I’ve been sending out postcards whereby I make little labels that say “FART” and put them behind people, like speech bubbles. It’s the most joy I’ve had in the last year.
