I said “Hey, Now! Another Mixtape!”





What up, blogosphere? I’m having a restorative Friday night inside in preparation for my (observed) birthday weekend, which will begin tomorrow morning, and last until my real birthday which is November 20th. You all won’t believe what I’m really getting for it, but I will share the joy when the time comes. In the meantime, I decided not to party too hard tonight because tomorrow we are having a night out on the town. We are going to dine out at a fancy restauarant, and then Gabrielle is going to drive me across town where I will probably drink a few beers somewhere before we enter the renowned Cinema 21 and participate(?)/view, I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but the bottom line is that we’re going to watch a ton of homemade porn at this event called the Hump! Festival hosted by one Dan Savage, you know, the gay dude who lets you know (rather harshly as I recall) that it is not cool to not go down on your gf when it’s like totally Woman Season. We’ll have to agree to disagree on that front—the Crimson Tide is a non-starter on the real! Euphemisms abound!



So I spent the evening listen to tunes and checking out this cool website 8tracks.com where you can host live streaming mixtapes. One of my friends described it as a tumblr for music, and I’d have to agree with that. I did both this time. I made a mixtape in Garageband with slick transitions and whatnot, and then I also went ahead and uploaded the same songs in the same order on the 8tracks website. For some reason, I named the mix Billy D Did A Reading Poster, Too. The main reason is probably because I got it into my head that i was going to drink a Colt 45 earlier, for science, but I have as yet chickened out, and it’s chillin’ the fresh way up in my freezer. Which reminds me that I should take it out before it explodes!



Here’s my link to the my: 8track site page.

  1. Happy birthday for today!
    I recently read a book called Dead Europe by Christos Tsiolkas and it was the “crimson tide” scene on the train that made me realise Isaac’s overseas excursion, which was already outside my world view, had gone way off-track. Totally disturbing!

    • Thanks, Naomi! You wouldn’t have known this, but Naomi is one of my favorite names, so I like you even more now! lol I’ll have to take a look at C.T.–sounds like the type of novels I enjoy: horrific, disturbing, but I also like it when they’re sickeningly humorous at the same time. . .

  2. Lol, thanks. I absolutely recommend C.T. His books are brutally honest and disturbing in a good way. I can’t remember if they’re particularly humorous, so they’re probably not. I thought he should’ve won the Man Booker prize even though I didn’t read the book that won. :-)
