WOOF, busy day Wednesday. Oy. Sorry for the delay… But let’s get it on!
Our little music brigade had ourselves a little contest over in the mixtape room. The challenge seemed simple enough, build a mixtape of essential songs, songs everyone MUST here before they die. But like I wrote the other day when I presented my 3 hour failure, the task is harder than it seems. The sheer weight added to a song by making it an “essential”, you become super critical of every little thing.
Fortunately, our bold members were up for the challenge, and come November 8, we had ourselves about 9 full blown entries, resulting in over 10 hours of amazing music, music that means a whole helluva lot each member! Listening, you really get a peak, not only into their music soul a bit, but into their history. You get an incredible since of the music that led them to where they are at this very moment.
Yeah, pretty heavy… pretty fucking cool.
Our polling for a winner of a super sexy Society Shirt starts soon and will run for about two weeks to make sure everyone gets a chance to weigh in on who’s mixtape was their favourite. During this time and during the polling, I’d like to share some of these with you! Why? Well, one… maybe you’ll see what we got going on down in the Society, all the love & good times being shared & discussed, and decide to join in on our fun. But maybe more importantly, two…. it’s about the music, and music this important to someone needs to be heard.
Our first share is actually not eligible to win as she won our last challenge which I hope to be sharing with you very soon (her super sexy shirt is on the way!!! WOOP!)… But story not only brought it, but she when above and beyond by bringing a four part, 40 song, chronological order mixtape, and even this was super-edited! It’s a beaut folks, from Simon & Garfunkel to the Cure to Arcade Fire to even Madonna, it’s all here and now it’s all right HERE…
Thank you so much Story, now enjoy as the…
