TSURURADIO Presents… MIXTAPES WEEK: Easy as A-B-C by Peanut!!!

I hate mixtapes!

This might sound like a strange introduction to an article about a mixtape, but I just do. I hate them. They are an absolute pain in the ass to make! Selecting the songs. Tagging the songs. Uploading the songs. It’s a lot of work and somehow the end results never seem to be as I imagined them.

Some people just have it in them to make good mixtapes. People like Tsuru for instance. Of course he’s had a lot of practice, since he’s posted approximately  6,234 of them here on TSURURADIO over the years (check out his most recent one ‘I Want To Be Your American Idol‘). But hey, it’s a quality nonetheless!

Anyway, I haven’t got nearly as much experience and I also happen to be a lazy basterd. So my contribution to the Mixtape Week is a lazy one. Sort of lazy one. Not really that lazy, because it was still a lot of work. Selecting, tagging, etc. you get it right? The lazy part of it is that I just picked some of my fave songs in my current iTunes library, browsing through the artists from A-Z (hence the title). So it’s become a kind of ramshackle affair with nothing coherent about it, except the fact that I like each and every song in the mix. Go check it out!
