An Obligatory Music Entry

13 04 2008

I’ve pissed a lot of people off during the last week so now I’ve decided to put some final nails in the proverbial coffin by writing about, of all things, music.

I used to avoid this topic because many readers just don’t give a shit. However, I have now reached a point where I don’t care about the folks that stop by here just to see if I’m in jail yet. (The answer? YES. And the internet connection here is the shiznit.)

I have, at best estimate, three readers who actually care about my music opinions: Devin, Ed, and Cliff. This entry is for you guys because I made two mix CDs titled “Life In Austin”. Thirty-three songs that encapsulate life here in the hill country. Some are songs that I heard for the first time after the move, some are songs that I hear regularily on the greatness that is KGSR. The rest are songs that just remind me of Austin for whatever odd reason.

If you want any of the following songs emailed to you, you know how to reach me.

“Care” is a very strong word. Only joking. Bedspring Kiss!!!! I love that song. Great list. I can’t top that.
