Mix Tape #45 - Skates

So you know what's awesome? Doing 85 on a deserted back road surrounded by Utah scrub and blasting "Skates" by Hayden.

MAN, I'd forgotten what a barn-burner that album is. It's nearly perfect and highly recommended. Awkward, self-conscious, and featuring songs about: being hot for 16-year-olds, how hard it is to talk to girls, calling in sick to work, fucking up romantic overtures, shoving rocks up one's nose, not being able to die in your dreams, and Susan Smith. And "Skates" which is just weird, sad and, uh...passionate? It's about ice skates. Sort of.

And you know who was really cute? Tawney Reed.
