Me again. 

My roommate conjured up a pretty good joke yesterday about our living conditions.

THE ROOMMATE: You know what's great about living next to a mall during Christmas?

ME: No, what?


In the Spirit of Whatever I've been making up a couple different mix CDs, titled "Chrismannukwanzaa Mix 2004," in versions both elder (for parents and elder siblings and such) and younger (peers). I'm actually pretty fucking pleased with the results, and instead of posting a top 10 list of whatever suits my fancy, as is the trend, I'm just gonna give you the Younger version. Fire up your favorite illegal p2p software, download the tracks, assemble them in order, enjoy.

Yes, the order of the tracks matters, too. There's such a thing as "flow."

(Note: some track selections are obvious, but eternal classics. Others just felt right. You'll note I violated a cardinal rule of The Mix and put in two songs by one band, but trying to choose between them was like choosing which child of mine gets to live. So they both went in.)

My gift to you.

2. "Supercruel," Monster Magnet
3. "I Wanna Make It Wit Chu," Desert Sessions 9 & 10

(And as for where I've been all this time, it's really not that interesting. Let's just file that one under "burnout" and move on.)
