• March Mixtape: The Here and Now

    31 Mar 2009, 05:53 by laura_mac

    I realized this month that I haven't just made a mixtape of my current favorite songs in, I kid you not, about two years. The theme this month wasn't that great, so I decided to just go ahead and do a mixtape of what I've been listening to lately. All but two have been chronically stuck in my head over the past month; "All Along the Watchtower" is included in tribute to the series finale of Battlestar Galactica a couple of weeks ago, and "The Curse" is a new song I got to hear Josh Ritter perform at Center Stage in Atlanta last week. (If you liked The Temptation of Adam, you'll love this one too. The next album is going to be a heartbreaker.)

    For the cover art, I was going to do a photo of the music-related doodles I've been doing on my class notes over the last month, but my camera broke at the Ritter show, so instead you get a photo of my favorite spring pastime. Thank goodness for warm weather and daylight saving time!
