NOTES: I picked song titles with names of painters, actors, directors, writers, or historical figures, beginning with Kubrick, ending with Chandler, and hoped that what happened in between made for good listening. There were many otherwise great tracks that just didn't fit the flow of the mix, but that might be included on future mixes. This mix has some hip hip-hop and some slick post-rock along with a reggae track and the folk song or three, so if you choose to download the mix, be forewarned. I looked over some of the similarly themed mixes from years past - many of which are stellar - and I hope this one is unique enough to warrant posting on this site. The Edie Sedgwick song about Mary-Kate Olson and the Dan Bern song about Johnny Cash and Anais Nin's imaginary love affair both crack me up. "Henry Miller" is performed by a band who has a really great Slowdive-inspired sound, which sets up the final track for a fitting send-off, hopefully. Enjoy.

CLAIRE DANES! Sifl and Olly were the reason I decided to check out My So-Called Life. Kudos for track nine alone. I love Bowie's cover of track fifteen. I watched Factory Girl for the first time, the other night, and Mary-Kate was in it. The universe and your mix are sending me a message, but what is it? I quickly looked for the Edie Sedgwick songs. Very cool. Great mix. Ride the themed mix wave as far as it will carry you.
