the holiday season is nearing. this means: mix tapes for my family, a long-run tradition because i work crap jobs and make no money, and also because in my family, we give gifts for every goddamn holiday. who ever heard of halloween and thanksgiving presents? anyway... i've been thinking this one over for a while. it's for my dad. he's a pretty neat guy. these are some songs that he's introduced me to while we were having "sarah and jerry time" through the years. some i've loved. some, not so much... but here's a little collection i came up with for him to kick back to, relax to, maybe smoke a little... after all, being an accountant is a fairly stressful and unforgiving job.......

My dad listens to most of this stuff already..... So how will it make him feel young and hip? No one at my school listens to this, hence, he would feel like an outsider.

The Friday the 13th Badge I
Friday the 13th taught us all the heartwarming lesson that if you are a camp counselor, it's probably not in your best interest to let that (potentially mentally retarded [see wikipedia]) kid swim alone while you are trying to get a piece of ass.
