The end of 2009 left me with a single thought: what’s next. I may have had a difficult year but I am looking forward to making some necessary changes.
Instead of conjuring up a few resolutions I thought about what I need to do with this year. I have many goals. It is time to take some risks. It was with that thought in mind that I spent the last three days creating a mixtape.
My life before was filled with many dashed hopes.
For Halloween I wanted to create a few zombies for some friends. For Christmas I wanted to create personalized CD sleeves for my parents. My head was cluttered with these little projects. I am sick of over thinking. No more talking myself out of things.
Instead of wanting to make a mixtape I hunkered down and started it one song at a time.
The tape is filled with naughty boys: Beatles, Eagles, Steve Miller Band, Rolling Stones, Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Violent Femmes, Ramones and The Doors.
The tape is a necessary jolt to the system.
