Let’s keep this going, shall we? Got a week’s worth of post I want to get out in the 2 1/2 days I have available before we head to the Great North on Wednesday for the weekend. First was yesterday’s awesome collection of 2008 gems by one of our original Society members Story, and now today is a little mixtape by relative new member Pookie Night (seriously, you’ve GOT to love that username).
So what do we got? A best of 2008 mixtape? An Essentials mixtape? A Society project mixtape? Nope, instead you just have an absolutely beautifully put together, good ol’ fashion mixtape. Part of an on-going series of mixtapes he intends to deliver (this is the first of two posted so far) called A Relationship In Mixtapes. Mixtape No. 1 is The Average Are Extravagant, from him to her (from her to him, A Pensieve For Your Thoughts, is already up too!) and is simply gorgeous. It flows from the fun to the ornate to the quiet…. seemlessly.
I’m very excited to play this (loud) in the car on Wednesday and just let the mixtape carry the long drive along, mile after mile, through the border (where baby will flash her brand spanking new greencard she just got yesterday (not via the marriage route, the hard way) after three long years!) and on up to my favourite city and future home, Toronto.
