Sunday Mix Tape – Number 407
It’s been almost four months since my last Sunday Mix Tape. Sorry about that. If you’ve kept up with the past few months of my life you already knowÂ why I was M.I.A. for a while. If you’re visiting this site for the first time feel free toÂ nod and smile and play along. Are you the voyeuristic type? Do you enjoy slowing down to look at accidents on the highway? Scroll through my posts from February and March to relive my emotional car wreck. Just here for the music? That’s cool too.
It’s kind of hard to believe the year is 1/4 over already. I guess I spent the first three months of 2017 vacillating between depressionÂ and elation so while it has felt like a roller coaster ride…I didn’t realize how long the roller coaster ride has been going.Â Thankfully now that thingsÂ are settling down a bit I can pause and take a breathÂ for a couple weeks. My schedule is quiet for theÂ first half of April. Later in the monthÂ I’ve got a moreÂ concerts on my calendar, then my birthday (so I’m sure some fun meals around town will be had) and finallyÂ I’m heading back east for work at the end of the month. Between now and when things start to pick up I’ll do my bestÂ not to ignore this exercise in futility I call a blog.
That feelsÂ like enough of an introduction for this week’s Mix Tape. ThreeÂ innings of a baseball game have played out in the time it has taken me to pen two paragraphs. At least in terms of time investment, I’ve done my part for today.
RULES for uninitiated noobs: I give birth to a weekly Mix Tape to be deposited on your iPhoneÂ or iPod or iBrainÂ or whatever the industry is currently pushing on you. Sometimes there will be themes that link all the songs together, other times Iâ€™ll just throw songs at a wall (not literally – iPhones are expensive!) and see what sticks. It should come as no surprise that the music I’ve been listening to lately mirrors the highs and lows I’ve experienced. I’ve tried to sequence the tunes here to mimic the unevenness one feels during times of strife and growth. Maybe you sleep like a baby one week, and the next not a wink. That’s this mix in a nutshell.Â The goal of this endeavor, as always, is to pique your interest in these artists so youâ€™ll support the artists and buy their albums.
