...There are also some photo journal entries above and the usual random crap bag I post. 





***January Third Two Thousand and Ten***




A quick update solely to point out that all the photos from our Costa Rica trip are up in the
Photo Journal section. 

Now I've gotta get my shit together and put together my tardy "Best of 2010" list.  Look for that next time, if that is the sort of
thing you find yourself looking for.

As a late christmas present/early flag day present, I present to you a couple of mixes I made for Skyler, Chelsea's brother...
a few of these songs may have shown up here before.  It's the typical stuff I post - indie rock, garage, oldies, mope rock,
ginger music, rhino rumpus, cat scratch and the fevers, flim flam jim jam johnny came a courtin' - all of the usual genres.
