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.

Down With The Russians! EP
This mix is about how I’m breaking up with you.
Why It’s Pretentious: I CALLED IT AN EP, YOU GUYS. Also, my friends and I referred to people as countries because we thought it was cool. (Wasn’t.) (I have nothing against real Russians.) (I like their hats.) I know this mix was a pretty jerk move. I knew that back then and I kind of regret it now. But he decided “Feel Good, Inc.” was our song, my high school self howls, grabbing present me by the collar. And he wanted to be a wrestler.
Well played, high school me. Well played.
