dressed up like a lady: I made you a mixtape. Vol. 1

I made you a mixtape. Vol. 1

I made you a mixtape. That's how you know I have a crush on you.


I dig Spotify. Just make an account and download it, like iTunes. It takes like 2 minutes. It's the way of the future.

For the first year MC and I were dating, he drove a car with a tapedeck in it, so I made him monthly mixtapes. I missed cassettes for some reason, and as you might have noticed, we're kind of into each other. Nothing says "I'm obsessed with you," like a mixtape. I made them using a giant Say Anything style boombox that I thrifted from the Salvation Army, but I must admit, Spotify is way easier. 


  1. I am a huge fan of Big Star. This is a good mix.

  2. This is such a cute way to post a playlist! Listening now.

  3. Unfortunately my old mac can't support Spotify. But I love your play list -- it's been a while (late 90s?) since I've listened to Matthew Sweet!

  4. Whenever my husband looks over my shoulder if I'm on the computer, he's like who's the girl with the pink hair again? I'm not explaining to him anymore that I don't actually know you (he's not savvy with computers, lucky for him, he's cute). I love being introduced to different music - thanks for the awesome playlist and the introduction to spotify! Can't wait to see "the dress" come to fruition!!

  5. I love creating mix tapes - which is really just a long poem.


Leave a comment. It's good for our relationship.
