    I'm trying something new this month, and posting the mix to sendspace in addition to a friends-only server. So, for the next week or two, anyone can download the mix: http://www.sendspace.com/file/wuk7b6

    For those of you stumbling on this post: As I listen to music in a calender month, I maintain a playlist of the songs that caught my attention for whatever reason.

    2. See the watermelon man a-come.

    3. I heard the words you said, but I avoided conversation. Threw stones one by one in the river's direction.

    4. I'm a radio Joe of the biz called show, I'm a rockin popstar with a get up and go.

    5. Go away from my window, go away from my door. Go away from my bedside, and bother me no more.

    6. I've been feeling dull as a coat hanger, pretty as a picture of a patient on a fresh iv. Giddy as a gangbanger with a set of sutures where his Magic Johnson ought to be.
