This mix is about a relationship, from the chase to the wedding.
Why It’s Pretentious: It starts with some latin jazz-inspired pop, hits some garage rock and Smiths/Coldplay covers, and then ends with some big band. What about that is not pretentious? Actually, it technically starts off with a drunken ramble by Frank Sinatra because… I’m not sure. Also, the title makes no sense whatsoever. I’ll love you… indefinitely? You know, for the foreseeable future, but who knows what’ll happen? Real romantic, high school self… Happy Valentine’s weekend from 2005.

On A Sunday Series: Seven Deadly Sins
This mix is about the seven deadly sins.
Why It’s Pretentious: This is part three of my five-part trilogy about Christianity. The actual title is “The On A Sunday She Thought It Through Series: Part Three - Seven Deadly Sins. There are seven!!! And they are deadly!!!! REPENT, LEST YOU BURN IN THE FLAMES OF HELL FOR ETERNITY.” It also came with some pretty stellar artwork, as I cut and pasted minimalist photos of models participating in cardinal sins. I like to think that the America’s Next Top Model episode on the seven deadly sins was directly influenced by Tyra Bank’s visions of my mixtape. Ridiculous? No. Accurate? You betcha.
