Mixtapes (a.k.a. mixed tapes). As Laura said:

Remember mixed tapes, how rad were they?  I guess now I should say, “put this on your next mixed CD”, but that just doesn’t sound as good.

A couple mixes have been passed between friends and I’m thinking it’s time to step it up and share my eclectic tastes as well. Want me to make you a mix? Drop a comment (possibly with some bands you like) and I’ll send a CD your way. You’re free to reciprocate, but it’s not required.
