To the others in my CD swapping group:

Point the first: I am lazy and was out of town this Sunday-Tuesday, so your CDs have not gone out yet. However, I hope to get them all burned (burnt?) tonight and in the mail tomorrow at lunchtime. I am ambitious and busy like that. I have no idea what I'm going to eat for lunch, though. More troubling. Your CDs may be et¹.

Point the second: Since this mix was supposed to be THE MUSIC YOU ARE LISTENING TO THIS VERY MINUTE, I found it a bit difficult. I am only listening to one song at the moment, and I don't think a CD with just "Some Crazy Bastard Wants to Hit Me" is going to satisfy your cravings, you greedy monsters. So I expanded it to Every Song That I've Heard Since K Announced The Swap That Made Me Say "This Is A Cool Song That I Like Or This Is My Song Of The Moment," Presented In The Order In Which They Made Me Say "This Is A Cool Song That I Like Or This Is My Song Of The Moment." There is none of my usual careful/obsessive attention to track order and trying to carefully arrange things of similar energy or sentiment to create an allover journey through the music². Instead, it's a chronological collection of what I liked over the course of two weeks or so. This means that you have Joe Dassin followed by The Kleptones followed by Gary Lewis and the Playboys... and you're going to like it! Or else!

Enjoy your ESTIHSKATSTMMSTIACSTILOTIMSOTMPITOIWTMMSTIACSTILOTIMSOTM mix, my fellow swappers. Since I'm lazy and shiftless, you won't have cool cover art, but you can see the track listing here:

So there.

¹ I like this word.
² Has anyone who's received a CD mix from me actually experienced an emotional journey while listening to one of my mixes? I thought not.

Thought you wrote "lazy and shitless". Mm hmm.

Got it today. Thanks!

Got it, too. Thanks. Now I feel bad for not having sent out mine yet. But it's lying on my desk, if that counts for anything.
And it's so cute that you put 98.6 on the mix. I love that song!

I just realized that I know "L'été Indien". Where from? I can only guess that we listened to it during French class somewhen. It seems the kind of time and place where I would have first heard that song.
