Happy Holidays, from Ardenstreet (aka enjoy this year's end-of-year mix)

I usually make, burn, and bulk mail a mix CD for friends on an annual basis, but this year I got lazy and just uploaded a file. Lucky for you, you get to enjoy it too:

(download, unzip, and presto!)


As my fellowing mixing friend John will attest, I am slightly obsessed with the mix CD genre, so if you have something that you've put thought into (i.e., considered flow, not just putting in songs just because they're obscure or you think I'd like it, etc.), please do share. It's a fine, fine art to make a good mix CD, but the ones that are good are FANTASTIC.
