description:
Ok, so my school starts at 7:30 in the morning. Because public transportation is notoriously shitty, I have to wake up at 6:00 so as to catch an early, definite train. Not only that, but I'm surrounded by bloody yuppies yacking away on their Blackberrys for the whole ride (Why do I always have to feel like I'm living out American Psycho?!). I'm not really as bitter about the whole thing as I sound (even though I have to be outta the house before the sun is even up), it's just not the ideal situation.

This mix is for those days, when I'm racing around the house in the dark, getting my bearings together, only to have the train screw me over, just so I can rush over to a school that isn't even that fun.

Tracks 1 - 7: Getting ready to leave the house.
Tracks 8 - 16: Walking to the train-stop / riding the train.
Tracks 17 - 23: Getting off the train and walking the final stretch to my first class.

Sorry for the rant, and enjoy!

In the future, Biff Tannen will almost assuredly own all of our asses. So, here's a preemptive honoring of his eventual kingship.

Congrats on first -- the future thanks you. Now, make like a tree and get the hell out.

Nice. Props on Hot Chip. I believe that you're braver than I for listening to Gogol in the morning. That may cause crippling accidents for me.
