This is a re-worked version of a tape I made for a friend who was moving away. Most of the songs are about moving/ leaving, some are just about the open roads, some are about cities and how exciting they are. Half the songs are meant to guilt-trip my friend, and half are meant to show the excitement of going somewhere new. Moving is a double-edged sword, and so is this mix.

Scout Niblett is a crazy person and I totally love her for that, but if you don't get it/ appreciate that kind of insanity, I can see why you'd not like her. I also agree that HHH, Postal Service, and The Faint generally suck, BUT these songs of theirs are pretty awesome.
