Two Coins For Charon

I've always loved making mix tapes. mix CDs... and now everything is more and more digital...
Well, last year I took a road trip with my friend dennisatl and dj'd the many-houred car drives using my iPod and an FM Transmitter
and he and astromante suggested i make a CD...
well, i've just gotten around to it
greatly influnced by the CD i'm making for Jorge as an introduction to "emo"

These CDs fell together pretty easily: i compiled a playlist of over 60 songs
and was surprised that i could make two good discs out of it
Jorge recently introduced me to the program "Jam"
it allows for cross-fading and levels far superior to just burning from iTunes
so i had a lot of fun doing that last night
however, these files are all just individual
if you want me to burn you a copy i did with all the flow
ask nicely...

it took me a while to figure out what to name it
i didn't want it to be too depressing a name
but then the idea of the value of life experiences occurred to me
- what else do you have when you're passing into the underworld?
and the, now quaint, material of actual CDs...
so, Two Coins for Charon
to get across that river

some of these songs are "old standards"
so i choose to put them up like this instead of in a zip file
download one at a time or take the time to get all of them

i've been loving music blogs lately
so want to share more on here of my obsession with songs...
