Part of my job includes a bunch of business trips. Sometimes it's fun, an opportunity to see new places, meet new people, all that. But most of the time it's just rather dreary, trying to make time pass in hotel rooms that all look much the same.

This mix is put together only using the music that is on either my iPod or my laptop. I have to be able to listen to it *now*, after all.

I think there are few retired bands that I so consistently think of their retirement with such disappointment. I had just seen them live last summer at a festival, had never heard them before and thought they were great, certain to make great stuff in the future, then just a few months later the announcement that they're disbanding. :(

Track Description:
Said the plain clothes cop to the holy ghost
“I’ve heard nothing yet that wasn’t the wind”
And we all got sick on a strip club meal
While the statehouse pardoned all the witches again
So the white tooth man with his kids in the car
And a wad of money that was already spent
Said “I love my dog but she just ran away,
She’ll keep running like the world never ends”

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!
