Mix Tapes II

Yesterday I stopped by the office of the online games store to swap my copy of GTA: San Andreas for PlayStation2 for what I’d ordered; GTA Double Pack for my Xbox. To compensate for the mess, they gave me the Triple Pack for the same price as the Double Pack. It contains San Andreas in addition GTA III and Vice City. Giving me the Triple Pack wasn’t strictly necessary since I’ve already own a copy, but I don’t complain.

Problem solved.

Yesterday I also met with Liv Marie who used to live the same shared apartment as I live now. It often strikes me how incredibly different we are, still we’re able to enjoy each other’s company every now and then. We also have very different taste in music and two or so years ago I created a mix tape for her to lure her into alternative rock similar genres. I didn’t succeed, she though the music was “too angry”. Not even Matthew Good’s excellent track “Weapon” was her cup of tea. The track listing of the tape is available here.

When we discussed music yesterday - and when I criticized one of the “bands” she likes - she ended up calling me a music snob. What gives? Anyway, I’m going to create another mix tape for her with more…eh…kinder music to see how she likes that.

Diversity is important in every aspect of life, I guess, even if it comes to music.
