Over at Eat.Geek.Play they asked me to make them a mixtape.
I tried to slap together a variety of things, the sorts of things that inspire me and fuel my process. A peek into what’s on as I work, but also what’s been on before that’s shaped my brain. Because when I work, I have playlists for tone and projects and I use them like prescription. Music has always been a great mental trigger for me. That’s why music also attaches to memories so well for me. Certain songs/albums/bands really define periods of my life, friendships, and relationships. I like having that ability to delve into an album and have my heart transported somewhere else for 45 minutes. It can really help the writing sometimes.
Rereading the post, I realise how real I get in a few entries. It’s nice to write about real stuff. We should always be honest.
Enjoy the tunes, peeps.
