I Don't Sleep, I Dream

A while back I posted that I was going to give away a couple of mixtapes to people who commented on what the title of my "It's Saturday Morning and I Don't Want To Get Out Of Bed" mix, saying that I would pick a couple of winners and mail them mixtapes.

This never actually happened.

If it were up to me, you would all get handcrafted mixtapes with super-sweet packaging delivered straight to your door by the always-reliable United States Postal Service every single day of your life just for reading. Because we're homies like that. Unfortunately, due to the time and expense involved, this is not a viable option. So, I'm settling for the next best thing. Instead I am going to post a link and artwork which you can download and put on your iDevice, burn to CD, transfer to wax cylinder, 8-track tape, reel-to-reel magnetic tape, etc. I'll also put a heading in the sidebar with links for each month as well as for any other mixes I may make along the way, sort of like Ben has been doing for our group over at Mixtapery.

Cool?

Cool.

p.s.- like your little nemo in slumberland cover art as well.

p.p.s- quantum of solace is a F#$%ING TERRIBLE name for a movie. sounds like a required viewing for a high school science class.
