In Good Company…
A little less than a year ago, the lovely Melissa, brainchild behind the amazing website NonPretentious, asked my to create a mixtape for her new series on music and bloggers. Of course, I said yes.
But this was as the persona I hold in another space–at my years long music blog, Pulp and Circumstance Juiced.
Of course, I wanted the theme of the entire affair to feature fruit (what else, really?) and worked hard to strive towards keeping it all in the theme (god, I love themes) while managing to express and flex my greatest of music tastes and desires.
It worked out well.
That being said, Melissa has since asked me to make a mixtape for this here persona; my domesic, crafting one, that is. I happily obliged.
But, I’ve failed to actually get it together. It simply consists of a bunch of scraps of paper lying around with potential tunes (but why that tune? I ask myself when I look back at the paper, crumple it up, and throw it away to start again from scratch). It’s now turned into an electronic piece of paper that I can add too from anywhere.
The list has gotten so long it’s ridiculous. So now, the pairing down begins. And the reasoning starts.
The theme? Something to do with crafting, of course.
I’ll let you know when it’s actually finished, and if Melissa still agrees to publish it. If she does, I will once again fall within the ranks of the great mixtape makers on the interwebs–even Martin Starr, who played the ever-amazing Bill Haverchuck on the short-lived but nontheless amazing show Freaks & Geeks, has a mixtape at NonPretentious.
