making a mix

In high school and college, I made a lot of mix tapes for myself and for friends. Back in the day (See these wrinkles!? I earned these with hours slaving over tapes trying to get the last song to end at JUST the right moment!), of course, it wasn't so easy as dragging a few songs into a new folder and clicking "burn". But I'm not bitter. No, not at all.


geekchick proposed the other week to do a music swap, and that the folks who wanted to participate would make a mix, send several copies of it to her, and she'd distribute them. This is the first time in a long time that I've been making a mix along these lines (usually I'm just burning music I think my mom would like to hear from my collection), and since I don't know a thing about the tastes of the other participants, I'm having some fun running through my collection and trying to come up with a good assortment of stuff, preferably stuff that not everyone is likely to have hanging out in their music collections, too.

And, of course, some of this is music I haven't listened to in ages. I should make a point to run through my music collection and listen to more of it than the typical stand-bys more.
