Mixtape: Girls Are Such A Drag (I’m On Fire)

June 14, 2009

Summer marches on, and here is another mix for your listening pleasure! I’ve been working off-and-on on a mix for the past month or so, and if I may shed my modesty for a moment, it’s totally fucking awesome, and one of the best I’ve ever made. However, this is not that tape (that will come later, but only if you’re good). This particular tape is made up of the remnants of the first, and all the leftover songs that needed a home after I mercilessly cut them. But of course I padded it out beyond that, and shook things up a bit.

Despite the title that was lovingly contributed by our friend Tom DeLonge, and despite the message that this tape seems to be conveying (unintentionally) throughout a lot of these tracks, there is no sob story of lost or unrequited love behind this. I think my subconscious is just a bitter asshole. But fuck it, it’s summery and happy enough and I like it (and besides, it’s not like it isn’t true; Tom DeLonge knows what he’s fuckin’ talkin’ about).

This tape is definitely schizophrenic, and possibly obnoxious in more than a couple places. But surely somebody will get a kick out of it.
