The Mystery Mix

A couple of days ago was one of the most misunderstood yet appreciated holidays in this nation’s history. In fact…I didn’t post at all that day (actually since Tuesday, but hey…I’ve been busy)…so here’s a mix, a mystery mix, in celebration of that glorious unnamed holiday… and if you’re wondering where I’ve been for the past 5 days or so, this should shed some light for you:

[MP3] The BeatlesGot To Get You Into My Life
[MP3] Miles DavisBudo
[MP3] Animal CollectiveGrass
[MP3] Bob MarleyOne Love
[MP3] Kanye West / José GonzálezGet ‘Em High / Lovestain
[MP3] Jimi HendrixPurple Haze
[MP3] Nick DrakeThe Thoughts Of Mary Jane
[MP3] Band Of HorsesWeed Party
[MP3] Elliott SmithHigh Times

Still can’t guess the holiday? Here’s a hint: IT’S ABOUT SMOKING POT… You’re obviously not a golfer.

On a completely unrelated note, there’s a cool little lyrics archive upstart called Bread for Music, operating with media wiki (the same software that Wikipedia uses). It’s a tad small at the moment, but it’s submission-based and only has room to grow…so head over there and check it out, and if you’ve got the time, submit a few songs!

“This is a hybrid. This is a cross, ah, of Bluegrass, Kentucky Bluegrass, Featherbed Bent, and Northern California Sensemilia. The amazing stuff about this is, that you can play 36 holes on it in the afternoon, take it home and just get stoned to the bejeezus-belt that night on this stuff.”
Nice idea for a mix though, but maybe you could’ve added one Cypress Hill song, just to be safe!

Purple haze is about smoking pot? Wow you guys sure have some strong pot up there. (yeah, I know it’s art, close enough, ..etc)

but .. I can’t stop my urge to point that out.

never said the songs were about pot, just the titles…although Got To Get You Into My Life is definitely about pot.

Could you guys go back to uploading songs to your personal web server? You can’t stream ‘em with Google Pages for some reason.

Hi there! I’m a kid from Sweden, and I discovered recently a band from Canada called “The Unicorns”. I wrote a small article about them on my blog… Anyway, They disappeared after their debut album in 2003. Has anybody ever heard of this band, and maybe know what happened to them. Just wondering because I think they’re great.

the unicorns disbanded and (some of) the members re-emerged as “islands” that connor just got to see.

ah i didn’t know (some of) the unicorns had morphed into islands

now i know why islands are getting hyped so much (or at least part of the reason) (they’re so pretty)
