It’s been a damn long time since I made a mix tape for all y’all. Of course it’s been a long time since I really felt like myself but I am getting better. Anyway this one was inspired by a couple of guys I used to work with who really need to take H. L. Mencken quote on the cover of this one seriously and dust off the skull and bones I know each one has hidden in their little black hearts and get on with gettin’ gone. Yeah you ain’t gettin’ an explanation for that statement either. Just shut up and enjoy the music…
OK so I didn’t have a party or even go out and it’s five days late to boot but here’s my birthday mix tape. I did put it together on my actual birthday, Aug 18, but I hadn’t been able to take the time to upload it until today. I usually debate whether or not to celebrate the day at all and end up somewhere with friends knocking back a few but this year that didn’t happen. The reason why doesn’t matter and is personal so I am not going to go into it. I made this mix before I knew what was up and it took sort of a morbid turn for a birthday mix even then. It’s five days late but I figured I’d post it anyway in hopes that someone might enjoy it.
I am off to wreak more havoc on the unsuspecting drivers on I-10 all of whom I will shortly think should DIE IN A FIRE. Yes it’s raining in Houston and a single drop within five miles I-10 turns everyone into complete idiots.
I posted volumes 1 and 2 of the Suburban Home Mix Tape series but didn’t happen to get my hands on volumes 3 and 4 even though I meant to. This time Virgil posted the mix as a download so I grabbed it, retagged the files because he’s sloppy (love ya Virgil) and popped it into the Mix Tape widget. This is one was inspired by the looming release from I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In The House titled Sounds of Dying. I have been digging it for while now and I highly recommend picking it up. If you were a member of Suburban Home For Life you would have it in your email today. If you aren’t then you should be.
So enjoy this little break from the serious side of things ’round here as of late as I have more serious stuff to post. Actually this is serious just in a different manner. Music should not be taken lightly. So enjoy this musical interlude and we will return you to your regular programming shortly.
As usual I am late on stuff like this and most of you probably got it from the horse’s mouth so to speak. But in case you don’t frequent the Lucero Message Board here’s the comp those kids put together back in January. It pretty much speaks for itself so just click and listen.
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.
