Despite the fact that we're all, as the Bunk might say, going to jail behind this shit, your funk mixes have been something of a phenomenon. I gave a couple to the bpl, who played them at a party she threw, and then I had to burn more for the people in her band, who loved them. Basically, any time someone hears one, they say "What is this? This is totally awesome."

There are a lot of commercially available funk mixes which would have a similar effect, ogged. apostropher presumable draws on them, but removes the songs that are only of historical interest or are less likely to be enjoyed by white people.

I try to avoid work these days, but I recently came out of retirement for One Last Big Score. I spent a day and a half putting together playlists for marches and rallies.

It ended up being mostly the hot rally hits you'd expect ("No Surrender", "Tubthumping", "Ain't No Stopping Us Now", "America"), but I did get a few of Apo's deep cuts into the Something To Listen To While We March playlist.

Born to be Blue is a heartbreaker. I was working on that with my vocal instructor at around the time that my wife was leaving me, and it worked out well for the song.

I'm really liking Sifu's mix. The first track has me racking my brain for where I've heard that guitar part before, and the Mark E. Smith guest vocals or imitator on the Von Sudenfed song is cracking me up.

DS's mix has an amazing beginning set of songs, but I haven't heard any more of it yet.

This has inspired me to make a mix for a female friend. However, my adamant opposition to including songs that appear to send any hidden emotional message has led me to be unable to include any songs by Crooked Fingers, though I know she would like them a lot.

I hope the backstory here makes up for the fact that this is not a new mix.

In May 2006, my wife moved out. In June of that year, I sent her one song per day, starting just before midnight of the 2nd with "Good Man" by Josh Ritter and following that up with "No Children" by The Mountain Goats. Those two made it onto Take Knecht Back which has a number of other songs from that month.

Here are most of the rest: A Bad June

1. I Wish You Love - Blossom Dearie
2. Ruin My Day - Jon Brion
3. The Cold War - The Bruces
4. Cheat - Franklin Bruno
5. Time After Time (feat. Sarah MacLachlan) - Cyndi Lauper
6. Your Ex-Lover Is Dead - Stars
7. One More Night - Stars
8. Jealous Guy - Donny Hathaway
9. Anywhere Anyone - dnTEL
10. Evil vs. Good - Clem Snide
11. Desire As - Prefab Sprout
12. Come Down Now - The Negro Problem
13. I Can't Go For That (No Can Do) - Hall and Oates
14. Since U Been Gone - Ted Leo
15. I Feel So Good - Richard Thompson
16. Good Weekend - Art Brut

74: I could re-up it. Recall, however, that it is the whitest blues mix ever imagined.

I'm guessing that my honkitude is equal to it. Only if it's not a bother, though.

It's not a big bother, and I'm pleased that there's demand, but I can't do it today. Send me an email and I will do it this week. I'm glad the internet has permitted our honkitude to reach out and touch politely.

72 regarding arms for Mugabe: this is excellent.

In fact, the Jetpacked mix in general has some strong kung fu. I'll have to check out the others later.

Tango Apocalypso

Hmmm, in the book I started reading today, A Handbook for Visitors from Outer Space by Kathryn Kramer (not Cramer), the most popular song of the day "Apocalypse" inspired a parody "Apocalypso".

spot four letters with a squashed kitten wrapped round them, my arse.

I read this, laughed because it was a funny sentence and I assumed it was hyperbole, and then clicked over to the tab with ttaM's mix waiting for me only to find that jesus christ you really *do* have to decipher squashed kittens.

Must give the RapidShare folks their due: that's a pretty entertaining, if stupid-as-fuck, captcha.

Pmon, do you want someone to just burn cds for you? Because I could do that, probably.

Huh. I didn't have to complete any captchas, just click on a link and then wait a couple of minutes for my "download ticket" to be enabled.

There is a Jimmy Buffet song by that name.

Btw, I feel bad because I always take, take, take with these mixtape threads, and never give. I apologize; Im not enough of a music buff to have stuff of my own to mix up for yall.

But I do want to say that ttaMs mixes, in particular, always really make me happy. Im listening to the Sunday morning mix right now, and its completely awesome.

(Also, ffs, why the fuck has Firefox decided of late that after half an hour or so its going to start deciding that the apostrophe key means "find"? Grrrrr.)

90: [Apocalypso] There is a Jimmy Buffet song by that name.

Yes, seems to have been written by Matt Betton. It was 1993, book was written in early 80s, but probably an independent "rediscovery" of the pun.

There's also a National Health tune called "Apocalypso", a rewrite of a different National Health tune called "Collapso", which Selwyn Baptiste said was "not bad for a white band".

DS, that ninth track is nothing short of a revelation. Holy fucking fuck. I am forever in your debt.

95 is exactly right.

Also, the first few tracks of Xenophilia made me jump up and down gleefully.

And my fi has requested Happy Hound be loaded onto her iPod for the gym.

Still to listen to the others -- thanks all.

Also, as I am *finally* playing your mix, Mr. B. says "ooooooooooh! Who is that?" (The Slits, Heard it through the Grapevine).

What a fat fucking haul of a mixtape thread.

Sweet!

Glad people are liking the Sexton. I think it's a sin that he's not better known.

Glad to hear I'm not alone.

Po-Mo's mixes are pimpin'. Love that Cosmo Baker track and the Ebony Rhythm Band especially, and Working For a Nuclear Free Society (whom I'd never heard before). I'm going to work my way through all of these eventually.
