You know what else has stood my personal 'test-of-time'?


...


Well, I guess friends come and friends go. So do bands and songs. I'm not exactly waiting for these songs to go, but everyone disappears, no matter who loves them. Yeah, that's a great line from Dave Eggers' What is the What, and I'm all melancholic today because I got home from Rome yesterday. I already miss everybody and I want to go back to that over-tagged city.

This mix was made before I went to Rome, and is all I listened to on the trip. That and a whole shit load of David Bowie (L). Yeah, that's right - that's all. Because I don't listen to Shakira - I dance to Shakira when I'm drunk on absinthe and we have left the bar that shows Wonder Showzen on a big screen.

(Give it up for the best of the best).
