All the pieces come together . . . TONIGHT!

To keep with this music theme Arrow kind of has going, I am going to share something with all of you. I really love to make mix tapes, as in actual mix tapes not just burning them on CDs. It hasn't happened in a while, mostly because Hydra commandeered my boom box about a year ago and I haven't seen its pretty face since. Ahem.

Well, almost two years ago I made a Lost themed mix tape--end of Season Three. It is compiled of songs that were somewhat pivotal, in my mind, in Lost and songs that could be about Lost. I tried to come up with a song for each character, and sort of managed to do it by way of the pivotal tunes, but I wasn't entirely successful. It's not my greatest mix tape, regrettably, so I think it is about time to make a new mix. That's where you come in. I will list you the songs already on my current mix, and the rest of you can add on to it through the comments! Now, I won't be making copies for everyone here--as much as I would love to--but I will compile the list whenever people stop listing and we can all make our own mixes. Maybe even submit artwork or something for us all to vote on and use for our own special mix that we all created together. I just thought of this so I haven't worked through the details yet. So. Start submitting now. Keep submitting until you can submit no longer, even if it carries over into other blog comments.

I will take this time to briefly say that tonight I will be watching the BADASS premiere at the Angelika theatre, probably by myself unless someone in the Dallas area wants to come with me. I will also be baking a Dharma cake!! Complete with bomb. Mmmmmm. Pictures later.
