So, yeah, I'm a little behind posting my mix cd tracklistings as of late. I made one for my friend Shannon a couple months ago, which I will post the tracks for soon. Meanwhile, here's one I started making for the trip to see Come Down at Sin-é with Dawn the night we were both supposed to make mix cds, but mine was not ready and she thought hers was too crappy. I ended up finishing it just in time for my trip to Syracuse to see Jismo and surprise him for his birthday the day after his birthday.

So that's the kinda stuff I'm putting on mixes these days. I've got ideas for one or two more right now, with about 10 or so tracks already on deck in iTunes waiting for the call. Going to Manhattan today (pretty soon, actually) to do so café relaxin', people watchin' and writin' before doing a little record shoppin' and then meetin' up with my friend Molly, who is in town from upstate. We're gonna chill and then go see Beulah and John Vanderslice. She hasn't heard of either act, but you know they're so good she will love it. Anywho, that should be all for now. Gotsta get dressed and get the heck out of the hizzouse. Because, a lot like Not, I'm never on time...I'm always....sleeping!

now playing: Canyon - "Blankets & Shields"
