This mix has tracks that some of you might not agree with and some I don’t even agree with but this is not my day. This is Veteran’s Day and it’s a day to put politics aside and salute those who keep us free. If you find yourself disagreeing with a song or two on here then suck it up. No politics are welcome on this post. Ever.
There’s a Monday Mix Tape hanging out under this post but since it’s not only Monday it’s the seventh anniversary of the day I stood before God, Family, and Friends and pledged my life to the lovely Michelle. I doubt it’s been easy for her to put up with my craziness over the last seven years but she has and we carved out a fairly stable niche in this world for our clan. I wouldn’t be where I am today without her and her support. Today is seven years and counting and I plan to keep counting for a long damn time.
To Michelle: I have no regrets in marrying you, not even a second thought, not in seven years. You have been there to help me up when I have fallen, you have supported my crazy schemes, and you haven’t stabbed me in my sleep (at least not on purpose). I love you as much today as I did when I married you. Happy seventh baby. Seven is still a small number…I can’t wait for fifty!
As promised here’s a happier mix than last Monday’s mix. It’s a little schizo but it’s happy overall. And after having listened to it all the way through it’s one of the best Monday Mix Tapes I have put up so far. This is not a mix tape for my anniversary…
Here is your Monday Mixtape folks…
This one is sort of a broken hearts with a youthful outlook rather than the cynical outlook I tend to have. I couldn’t pull off the whole thing with youthful optimism on loss and broken heart thing but it’ll do for now and it’s still better than most of my cynicism. I did get to pull out some of my favorite artists that I have been ignoring lately and that makes me pretty happy. Although I think I see a theme in the compilations that could go away. I promise I am not as depressed as these make me out to be. Next week I’ll shoot for a happy tape…Maybe not…
As an aside: I am running out of ideas for the covers so I have resorted to cool pics of the kids for the moment. Maybe I’ll come up something inspired for next weeks compilation.
