the mixtape

Ah, the mixtape. The mix cassettes I made over my formative teen years is basically a call and answer foreshadow to the woman I became. From tapes, to CDs, and now playlists and soundtracks, mix lists eagerly cultivated a night of romance. Let you scream rage your protest of being grounded. Told someone you were crushing on them. Keep you on pace for a run. Let you feel old school, made you feel vintage, ushered you into a new generation of music and mayhem.

All hail the mixtape. Happy National Disc Jockey Day.
