I realize it's been quite awhile since I’ve visited this space and quite frankly, that kills me. Having written for various online journals in the past, I’ve always found writing to be a form of cathartism unmatched by any other creative outlet...well, except maybe music. On that note, I thought what better way to make a new year entrance than with a loving little "mixtape?"
Remember the first time a crush or significant other gave you a mixtape or (if you're a millennial such as myself) a burned CD? They were always covered in Sharpie transcribed song titles, artists, and scribbles, signifying the curator had carefully arranged then rearranged the songs until they reached the perfect symphony of self-expression they knew would burn a hole right through your soul. Whew! That's hand lettered passion straight to the eardrum right there.
So in hopes of triggering some of those first-love-status goosebumps, I've crafted a funky, fun Valentine mixtape just for you. Hope you find some new beats or possibly even inspiration to curate your own V-day playlist for that special someone. If you do, do me a favor, burn it on a CD. It will mean so, SO much more, I promise. ♥
