Hola hola hola hola — I’m listening to Challengers by New Pornographers — my friends! Happy Mondays to ya! Got a special treat for you to today, yep, just for you! It’s not everyday that Baby, aka TsuruBride makes a mixtape, but when she does, oh my oh my is it cause for celebrations!!
Well, except this mixtape may not make everyone all that happy when you think about the subject matter, but you know, it’s best to let Baby tell it…
So my latest mixtape brought some drama into the Tsuru household. You see, I wanted to make a mixtape all about broken hearts, and Mr. T, as I like to call him, thought maybe I was trying to tell him something. But this wasn’t the case at all! If anything I love him more now than I ever did (*tender*), especially with that sexy new haircut! RAWR!
Anywhoozle, I had a couple reasons for the mix tape: 1) some of my fave songs on 2010 are about heartbreak and I wanted to make a mix with these songs, 2) it’s the end of summer, which makes me think about the end of summer affairs and going back to school, even though I haven’t been in school in forever, and 3) just cuz I don’t need a mixtape to commiserate with, don’t mean the fine Tsuru fans should be short changed on a mixtape!
So without further ado, I’d like present, A Rare Bird, a TsuruBride Mixtape: The End of The Affair (aka Fuck You). Enjoy!
Oh baby! I love you too!
Without further ado indeed!!! Ah wait, one ado, only 5 days left to enter into our fan-sign contest!!! Hop to it! Okay, enough ados!!!
