Which reminds me: It's about that time of the month: time for another mixtape give-away. Why? What did you think I meant?

Do you want to win? Okay, here's the contest: I have two titles in mind. This is a mixtape specially formulated to make you not want to get out of bed or up off the couch on a Saturday morning. It's pretty mellow, sleepy stuff. I have two titles from two songs on the mix. You must choose one and cast your vote by commenting on this post:

* Bed Is For Sleeping

{ or }

* Sleeping In

I will look over who has commented on this post and will pick two winners, at random, sometime soon. Probably over the weekend. We'll see how it goes.

Did all of last month's winners get yours alright? I know Ben got his because he mentioned that his had been pretty manhandled by the glorious USPS. Dave? Chris? Any problems? Did you get them? Lemme know. I'm worried sick.

In other news, it's Thursday, the second-worst weekday ever invented, coming in right behind Monday in my very scientific polling of my cadre of imaginary friends. If I ever meet the nincompoop who invented Thursday, I swear I will kick him in the nards. Word is bind.

Sleeping In.

Dylan said...

Jason - Really? I'd always heard it as "bind." Chalk it up to East/West Cost differences, I guess.

And which are you voting for?!

jason quinones said...

i'm all for "sleeping in".

i'm lazy.

i can only beat up a measly group of 18 five year olds y'know!

HA-HA!

Oh yes, I did get the mixtape. It was great stuff. I didn't want to say anything until I had listened to the whole thing which I just did a couple days ago. It was the best thing in my mailbox since... lets just say I was going to do a post with just a picture of the cool CD mailer it came in but decided it may be a little too geeky.

Dylan said...

Dave - Glad you enjoyed it. But which are you voting for?

Dave L said...

I think I am going to have to vote for "Bed is for sleeping" - it would look cooler on the CD case.

Dave L said...

Whoa, you are an incredibly fast comment man.

Here you go, cuz.

and...Bed Is For Sleeping

Caitlin said...

I like Bed is for Sleeping.

Brandt said...

Definitely - Bed is for Sleeping. Cover art swimming through my head. Though if I had my mac&cheese I'd title it "People Die in Bed". You can't pass that up, you just can't.
