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!
