"It's The End Of The World As We Know It, And I Feel Crampy" : THE week-END MIX"
I can't get too worked up over the end of the world THIS time. I thought it was over the minute the rave reviews for "Napoleon Dynamite" started rolling in. When I woke up the next morning, I thought, "Aaah. A new lease on life." Then, BOOM. The Fleet Foxes.
Maybe this time we will all learn a lesson. Maybe this time, it's for real.
If so, I'm going out strong. This mix is for me, as much as it is for you.
It's more than a few of my favorite things.
There are no guilty pleasures here. I am in love with every one of these tunes for one reason or another. If we're alive tomorrow, feel free to ask me why. In the meantime, try to enjoy this mix.
Don't be smart alecks and start with Track 2. Give Lemmy some respect, and let Mikkey D blow you away on drums.
