Knitter's CD Swap

I sent out my CD’s and got my first two in the mail. Nothing like finding packages in your mailbox to brighten your day. First off, thanks to Marlana for setting this all up. I got your mix and it is fab. I have been listening to it in the lab and everyone keeps wondering who would mix The Beastie Boys with Emmy Lou Harris? Marlana would and more power to her. This is totally the same sort of strange mix I am in the habit of making. Plus it has a Mojo Nixon track on it. One of the first concerts I ever went to was a Mojo Nixon concert at City Gardens. I was dating a bouncer at the time. Crazy but true. This was way back in the early days of mosh pits. Judd put me up in the stands in the corner and forbid me to come down into the pit. Ah High School, good times.

A second thank you goes to Suzie. I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to it, but I am dying to here the Knitters track. I mean how can they not be great with a name like that? This mix also has a Teenage Fanclub song on it. They always make me think of another guy I dated. He made me a mix tape that really was the reason I went out with him. It was just one of those tapes where I LOVED everyone song on it. He got me into so many groups that I had never even heard of before. He’s responsible for a minor obsession I had with The Stone Roses.

Dressy Bessy of course makes me think of my Dressy Bessy Doll when I was a little girl. (Thanks Dressy Bessy for teaching me to work zippers and tie bows). And finally a funny story about Iggy Pop. Iggy lives around the corner from my brother. He has seen him driving his Bently with the top down in a leather jacket with no shirt. All very rock star, except that he is driving his kid to a T-ball game!!!!

I can’t wait for my next 2 CD’s to arrive!
