In the Airport


4 fév. 2009, 2h16m

Did a little traveling over the weekend - flew down to Nashville to see Girlfriend in Bowling Green (KY) and The Killers at the Opry. Both were successful, highly enjoyable endeavors. I have plenty of raving to do about The Killers (and my girlfriend, too), but that's for elsewhere.

Sitting at the gate at Port Columbus, I was struck with an idea for a mixtape to celebrate the inane, the boring - the airport. I threw together a handy little set of tunes to fit the mood (though not boring!) and then I had the feeling I've had so many times since last fall:

"Maaaan, I miss Muxtape."

The site just relaunched as a MySpace-ish service for bands, but it will never be as awesome as it was in its glory days. Inspiration led to some truly awesome mixes, and I discovered quite a bit of new music there (including Lykke Li, who made my top ten albums of 08 with Youth Novels).

But, the mix lives on, and in that spirit, I give you In The Airport
