I thought I’d make a surprise comeback ala Michael Jordan (specifically his 3rd surprise comeback, with the Washington Wizards) by putting up one of the best “mixes” ever “created” by “man.” Despite its numbers, the 32 tracks on “Playlistlessness” are indeed rather carefully combined. It’s a listening journey and once you take it you will feel instantly and undeniably closer to me, Typewritermender, its author. If you don’t, then you just don’t get it and are probably an idiot and thus we were never really friends. If you’re ready to take the test, there’s a track list post-jumpus. (P.S. Another mix likely to follow in the time between shortly and soon. It will be melancholy so put on your cryin’ hats)
