Living off the LAN
This weeks assignment from The League is “What songs were forever being looped on your car’s stereo back in high school. A cassette could only hold a dozen or so songs, so that’s the magic number of songs to list. If your car didn’t have a cassette deck in high school, go ahead and pretend it did, you punk.”
This week’s assignment is quite interesting. Mostly because my teens were spent getting to know the CD (writeable and re-writable did not exist at that point), so the art of a good mix tape was lost on me. However over the years, I have developed a little knowledge on the art of a good mix tape (CD), by trying and failing as well as my fictional mentors.
I learned from great shows like “How I Met Your Mother”
Barney: Now people think a good mix should rise and fall. But people are wrong. It should be all rise, baby!
And from movies such as “High Fidelity”
Rob: The making of a great compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules.
So here it is, my Mix Tape submission to The League…
