As in, “You’re listening to some awesome music. You gonna vastate me with that?”
Keep warm under these covers.

Greetings from Belmar, NJ!
This marks the first time since the summer of 2003 that I have tried to make a mix on a CD. I have done a number of web releases, and given out a few really long archive mixes, but I think the time has come to make a new mix on a CD.
This mix goes well with spreadsheets, sharpened pencils and adding machines.
This is what the future sounded like in 2005.
MP3 blogs got their start in the early 2000s. In 2005, there was a proliferation of music bloggers who posted hot new music, sometimes, in violation of copyright laws. In the post-napster era, mp3 bloggers shared some of the best music the radio would not play. Today, some of those bloggers have their own legitimate satellite radio shows, like Aquarium Drunkard, My Old Kentucky Blog, and Gorilla VS Bear. They are still leading the charge for independent music.
I released this mix in 2005 to showcase some of the new music I was absorbing at the time.
