Just Another Mixtape: April Issue.

The theme for this month's [The Monthly Mixtape] was a "geek" theme. I dunno, but I wasn't reeeeeally feelin' it. Maybe it was "a little derivative" ("'A parody's always a derivative.' 'But it's not organic, you know what I mean?'" Ohhh, I LOOOVE you, Kelly and Ryan!).

Anyway, I just reposted my "Open Windows" mixtape (it's a mixtape of music you'd want to hear playing out of an 'open window'. whhhaaa? self-explanatory?!) and it's a litttttle long.

**A side note to the young babies out there: no mixtape should really exceed 12 songs. I know some whiners out there are saying, "WHHHAAA? NOOOO! I have TONS of good music that everyone has to hear!!" NEWSFLASH: No. No ones wants to hear it. Get over yourself and learn some restraint.

With that being said, mine's 17 songs long (I know, I's a hypocrite), but really it's "transitional": first half is a daytime playlist which moves into the last half (aka 'nightime'). Ohhh, that sounds pretty "derivative" doesn't it?? Click on the title to download it (good for only the next 7 days). ENJOY.

**OBLIGATORY PICTURE POST: "Future Native American"/Because my sister dressed better than me:
Jaya FINALLY to wore her awwwesome indigenous necklace (bought in Solvang) outside of her apartment and I FINALLY convinced her that magenta/hot pink was "her color." This was the conversation we had at Sephora:

Jaya: (after applying magenta lipstick): I look like a future Native American.
Me: "Future" Native American? Are you becoming Native American? So, not futuristic Native America?
Jaya: *SILENT "I HATES YOU" LOOK*


***BECAUSE I'M FEELING IT: Minor Threat's Stumped
My sister sent me this Minor Threat song a while back and I just FELL IN LOVE with it. I suggest you give this a listen, maybe when you're getting ready to step out or if you want to dance yourself out of bed. AND DANCE AND DANCE AND DANCE AND DANCE.... AND DANCE AND DANCE!

  4. I love that I have half the songs already. We're seriously so alike! I'm all up on mixtapes; I make them for every occasion: cleaning, getting ready to go out, road-trip, sexxing it up, reading.

    P.S. When are we hanging out? You, me, your sis.
