(25) Days of Summer

•August 8, 2011 • Leave a Comment

I started this mix in late April, and titled it “Almost May.” Then… I forgot about it. It became “May,” “Summer is Here,” “Birthday Mix,” “Mid-Summer” “July, July,” and then I gave up on it. But there’s a lot of good music I’ve been listening to lately, old and new, so I figured I’d resuscitate it (with some recent additions, namely mucho Nicola Roberts because I’m obsessed) and make it a big mix of songs I love. Enjoy, or don’t. I know I do!

Let's pretend this is from 2011...

Hi all,

In looking at my recent account statements, it seems that I’ve owned this website for more than half a year without writing a single word. (Okay, I’ve written two words, but “lorem ipsum” doesn’t reeeeeally count.) I bought the URL so I could have it in case I wanted it in the future, but seeing as I’m not running for president or likely to become a public figure anytime soon (unless that sex tape leaks…), I figured I might as well use it for frivolous things until a better use presents itself. Look here for mixtapes, things I find on the internet, and maybe even a tipsy ramble or two.

xoxo
