You should maybe go vote for me…. Monday August 20, 2007

Well…I kind of didn’t have a real job for a little bit there and so I took to doing things like entering mix cd contests hosted by Bumbershoot. Now, in the way of those sad unpopular girls who launched largely unsuccessful campaigns to get nominated for prom queen every year I need you to vote for me. It’s easy, you just go here and follow the directions. You can vote more than once! Kind of like American Idol…only with less looking at Clay Aiken’s face.


I’m number 35 and my cd is called “Obscure Time Signatures are for Lovers.” It’s all waltzes because a) I really like waltzes and b) the all-waltz mix cd brought me my second ever win of anything in the Trail mix cd contest last semester (this is a different mix though because the songs had to be by current or former Bumbershoot artists).


Here’s the tracklist:


1. Bird On a Wire – Rogue Wave
2. MX Missiles – Andrew Bird
3. Let It Die – Feist
4. Waltz #2 (Xo) – Elliott Smith
5. My Mother Was a Chinese Trapeze Artist – The Decemberists
6. When I Was a Baby – The New Pornographers
7. Enchanted Forest – P:ano
8. Sad Songs and Waltzes – Cake
9. Death of an Interior Decorator – Death Cab for Cutie
10. Drink Deep – Laura Veirs
11. Weird – Menomena
12. My Mathematical Mind – Spoon


I don’t have it uploaded on the internet, but if enough people want it I will go through the hassle…because I love you guys and because I still only have half of a real job.
