Hey music fans! AdventurerNeil checking in here. Don’t have a ton of time or energy right now, but I wanted to share a mixtape that a friend from work gave me a little bit ago. It’s pretty darn good, and I’d promised him I’d make it appear on the old ‘RU. Finding time and hosting has been a bit of a challenge, but I think I got this… (if not, I’ll mess around with it some more tomorrow).
So without any ado, really…

I like this mix because even though I’m passingly familiar with around half of the artists, I had only heard ONE song on it before. So new to me = good! This mix also scores very high on my timeliness measure, with plenty of artists that are hot hot hot right now! I’ve placed an inconspicuous “BOOYAH!” next to the songs I like most on it at the moment.
Check the bands out, and if you like them, give them your money!!! >:-| I mean, you could give them stocks (which would pay them a dividend) or bikes (which would get them from point A to point B), but maybe they already have those things. Maybe they just want some cash for their work. You know, sweet high-liquidity c-a-s-h. IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK!!??!? That’s right. It’s not. Now raid your stash and make with the cash, Nash!
Anyway, it’s tired, and I’m late, so beddy-bye for me. I’ll see you in the not-too-distant future with an artist interview and more epic mixtapes, of course!
