Monday Tuesday Mixtape Update 04.28.09 :: The Hip-Hoppin’ and the Beboppin’

April 28th, 2009 · 7 Comments

I guess it’s kinda lame that this is my first hip-hop mixtape after a year of doing this mixtapin’ thing, but hey … I mean, I’m like the whitest guy in the world. And this is probably the whitest hip-hop mix ever. My brother Jack helped out with a few of the tracks as well. […]

Monday Mixtape Update 04.20.09 :: Class Photos — Before They Were Big

April 20th, 2009 · 12 Comments

Monday Tuesday Mixtape Update 04.14.09 :: Sad Bastard Music

April 14th, 2009 · 13 Comments

Was a time I’d make huge playlists and burn CDs of the saddest songs I could think of and listen to them when I was bummin’. That’s not my bag much anymore, but I can’t deny that I have a bit of a chub for some sad bastard music. Your woman done left you? I […]

Monday Mixtape Update 04.06.09 :: Hard Rockin’ Daddies

April 6th, 2009 · 5 Comments

If you’ve been following the mixes for the past couple months, you may be saying to yourself, “Hey, I like all this old sunshine pop and power pop pap as much as the next guy, but isn’t it kinda wimpy? Joel, why don’t you give me some hard rockin’?!” To that I say, “Shahmown an’ […]
