When I’m on my way…

Somebody (this somebody’s quite entertaining blog can be found at hipstercrite.com) posed this question in a forum on 20sb.net and I thought it’d be nice to put here on this blog.

Person asked what would be on “the mixtape of your life.” And so I came up with this list. All these songs are linked to youtube videos, so feel free to go enjoy some good tunes. I did complain, however, that I’d want to do a second part of this… because there are a lot of loud songs that just wouldn’t have fit in with these. And yeah, I just like too much music, there are way too many important things that didn’t make it on here (where’s Bowie, for fuck’s sake?!). I will definitely need to do a Volume II. So I’ll keep you posted on that. Okay? Okay!

Also, feel free to tell me what would be on your life’s mixtape! I’m genuinely curious!!

    Yet again.
    A playlist I have to steal.

    Make this a monthly thing and I’ll have lots of badass music to listen to and the most perfect mixes!

    So hey, I had a question. I wanted to start this new sort of section on my blog in the next couple of months- sort of giving back to the blogworld as I tend to get a tonne out of it (great conversation, wonderful stories and some fantastic music. coughcough). I wanted to basically showcase some stuff that bloggers do and don’t really draw attention to- just stuff that I loved and reckon other might too.

    You can see where I’m going with this, yes?

    WouldyoumindterriblyifIshowcasedyourmusicandlinkeditsometimesoon? You can say no. I wouldn’t be upset.

    For long.

      I was a dj at a pirate radio station for a couple years, and I’m not anymore but I miss it like crazy. So really, there’s nothing I love more than force-feeding good music to people.

      As far as the question you asked about showcasing things… I think you’re meaning the music I’ve made? Because yeah, that would be okay I think. Like I said, I’m not that shy about my own music, I just don’t like to push it too hard on people. I know it’s not everyone’s bag, you know? But yeah, I’d be stoked.

Say something brilliant.
