Mixtapes have been my constant, and this is a mix I've wanted to work on for a little while. Now, I have the incentive to finish it, as a celebration for the twentieth mix contest.

This is a mix of songs and artists that were all introduced to me through mix exchanges. These songs have stuck with me and have grown on me immensely. I thank everyone mentioned below for schooling me well. Cheers!

Like the cover I 'shopped? Best of luck to Desmond, Penny and to the lady in the photo.

From Kate (MIXSPACE) July 2005

My favorite tape. I knew this task would be brutal because I took these mixes for granted and all I know about this tape is that it was recorded over a Jason Donovan Ten Good Reasons tape, and it is from "Kate". She set the bar very high for cassette packaging. This tape has been a constant.

The age-old tradition of Three Kings Day is to fill the shoes of good children with candy, while they sleep. Bad children get shoes filled with scorpions and other venomous creatures. Congrats on third place!
