I rediscovered my love for Pneumonia the past few weeks.

My friend Bobby is part of a mix tape club with a few other people. I’m so in love with the idea that I’m going to copy it. Here’s how it works:
- Each person is responsible for creating a mix 1-2 months out of the year (depending on the number of people who participate). These mixes will be burned to CD(s) and mailed to the other members of the club. So you’ll receive a new mix every month.
- The goal is to find awesome new music and share under-appreciated older stuff.
That’s it, really. I guess it helps if people generally have similar music tastes, but that shouldn’t prevent people from throwing in awesome music from all genres. If you’ve listened to any of my mixes, you know that my taste skews indie and alt-country.
So is anyone interested in participating? It’d be great to get people from all over who don’t necessarily know each other.
I was originally going to call this my Winter in Cambridge 2010 Playlist, but that seemed disingenuous. I haven’t spent that much time in Cambridge, and this playlist was almost entirely created during and inspired by my trips to New York. Ideally I would have everyone listen to this playlist while walking through NYC on a cold night, but I understand that’s probably asking too much of my three loyal readers.
I tried to find a good mix of old and new, and I’m happy with the result. I reserve the right to edit the playlist, however, and welcome additional suggestions/feedback in the comments!
Okay, so I’m 20 songs into my 2010 Winter Playlist. Feel free to send me suggestions. Expect a final version to come soon, probably after the D.C. rallies next week.
Here are some of my past playlists. There might be a little bit of overlap.
This is random music I listened to today, instead of working on my copyright and architecture paper. Two of the songs (#2 and #6) came to me via my friend Hsieh AKA Hsieh-nay AKA Triple H. She loves all of those nicknames, so everyone should use them.
Thanks to my obsession with Grooveshark, my blog is quickly turning into a collection of playlists completely unrelated to my law school experience. Regardless, this is a collection of my favorites from the height of my emo phase. Note that I only included songs I loved back then, even if I no longer like the song/band. Except I still secretly love these bands. Especially Brand New and TBS.
I hope to supplement this with a 2004 list, in which college (and DC++) helped me discover much better whiny music.
Other playlists in the works: “Shitty music that I love,” “Pop-tastic,” and “I grew up in Texas.”
Bob Schneider will forever be associated with Joanna’s 2007 birthday drunkfest. This is the only song I remember from the entire concert that night.
It’s officially spring break at HLS, and I’m relieved to actually have a break this year. I’ll be around Cambridge until Sunday, and then off on a road trip with my friend Joe. We haven’t finalized anything, but I’ll definitely be in NYC from Tuesday through Thursday to watch a deposition for a case I’ve been helping out with. I’ll have to resist the urge to shout “lawyered” every time the opposition makes a mistake.
In honor of spring break, here’s a list of (not spring-like) songs I’ve been listening to this semester. It’s a lot of stuff from last summer, and doesn’t really need to be listened to in this order:
1. “Lisztomania,” Phoenix (if you didn’t guess this one, you clearly need to do a better job stalking me)
3. “1901,” Phoenix (yeah, there are two Phoenix songs, almost back-to-back — YOU CAN JUST DEAL WITH IT)
It definitely doesn’t flow as well as my past playlists, but I was pressed for time. Enjoy!
Song of the day: Damien Rice, “Coconut Skins”
This is the best video I could find; not as good as the original recording, but acceptable.
