I set out create a mellow mix of songs from the K archives to fit nicely with the cold, wet Fall weather that we’re having right now in Olympia.  This was almost a bummer mix, but in the last few minutes of compiling, the addition of a few upbeat tunes (“Detroit Music” by Chain & the Gang, “Red Light” by The Vibrarians, and “Canned Oxygen” by The Halo Benders, to name a few) turned this thing around.  I think I’ll put it on when I get home, make a cup of tea, start the fire, and read a book.  I don’t think the neighbors will mind if I turn it up real loud.  You probably should too.

Love,
Sarah
