Mix Tape #33 - It's Raining In Vancouver But I Don't Give A Fuck

Oh. Hey. Christine? If you ever find this? I hate you. Seriously.

That said, this mix turned out pretty well! There's actually new stuff in here. Occasioned by the latest issue of The Big Takeover, which is my favorite place to read about music. Jack Rabid's kind of a windbag [pot...kettle-ed.], but his heart's in the right place. And the reviews section is pretty much the size of the yellow pages. They uncover seriously cool stuff. Screw Pitchfork. Get that magazine.

What else to say? Well, the new Dinosaur doesn't suck which was a pleasant surprise. And I know that Magik Markers isn't a crowd pleaser, but it made me wistful for all the terrible things on Homestead in the late 80's. Like Jad Fair or something. If you bail there, though, you're going to miss Plunt. You don't want to miss Plunt. No, no.

And what's with all the Sparklemouse Dangerhorse lately? I never would picture them being friends.
