Channeling Roger Painter* for this post

Gary, I know you're not reading this, so what's the point of keeping a blog if you're not going to see it? So I can say anything I want to. For example, the RIAA can blow my ass for taking Muxtape away from me, even if it's only temporary.

Thankfully I already snuck into the nurse's station and dug up a fair replacement in the meantime: http://8tracks.com/

It works much the same way, except uses are limited to eight tracks (get it?) or fewer, instead of Muxtape's 12. YOU HEAR THAT GARY! YOU ARE MAKING ME SETTLE FOR LESS DUE TO YOUR STUPID COPYRIGHT LAWS WHICH EVERYONE HATES.

To help smoooooove out your bumpy transition, here're a few songs ABOUT mixes to inspire:

Ted Pauly - Your Mix Tape Broke.mp3
Los Campesinos! - It Started With a Mixx.mp3
Avenue Q (Original Broadway Cast) - Mix Tape.mp3
Butane Variations - Mix Tape Honey.mp3
The Brand New - Mix Tape.mp3
Art Brut - Nag Nag Nag Nag.mp3
A record collection reduced to a mix tape, headphones on I made my escape...

And in the meantime, a few choice words directed to the RIAA itself:

*For more of Roger's thoughts, please buy and read Master of Reality by John Darnielle.

Make me a mixtape - the Promise Ring off the electric pink EP springs to mind for me...
