My wife and I are taking it easy this Thanksgiving.  Normally we drive up to Green Bay to spend the weekend with my parents, but with our weeks being rather crazy lately, I decided we’re just gonna hang out at home and eat some pizzas (cooked on the grill of course).

This change of the normal tradition got me thinking.  I think Thanksgiving may have more to offer than just boat loads of pie, turkey, and mashed potatoes.  Seriously, the Thanksgiving season is a great time to remember how much God has given us.  Even if your life seems sucky, man, we’ve all got a lot to be thankful for.  It’s with this in mind that I created a soundtrack for your Thanksgiving holiday (you can thank me later): Life is Good.

I hope you enjoy this Thanksgiving mix!

I got the band Hello Kelly sent to me recently and I’ve been promising to offer my opinions on The Blah Blah.  Let me start off by saying that, as a part-time music snob (yes, I admit it…), it’s my duty to give you all the reasons why this band shouldn’t be in your playlist.  They don’t sound indie enough…  They aren’t introspective enough…  They aren’t folk-influenced in any way…  Their songs are too catchy…  Their lyrics are a little over-used and simplistic…  They’re too optimistic…  They sound a lot like all the other pop-rock bands out there…

But I’m really liking them, despite my attempts to remain aloof and snobbish toward the pop-punk ways of this band often dubbed “the hardest working in Ontario.”

I realized I haven’t put up a mix CD in a while (an Easter mix I made never made it to the blog…), so here is the first of two summer mixes.  This first one is “Ain’t No Cure for the Summertime Blahs – A Soundtrack for Your Summer.”  You should probably play it non-stop until September.

I tried to capture the fun of summer with a lot of upbeat, hope-filled songs, from the past to the present, from the obscure to the well-known.  The next summer mix CD, which should be out soon, has more searching, road trip-styled songs.

Anyway, hope you enjoy the mix, and give me your comments.

dontbreakmyheart.jpgI got up an hour and a half ealier today to make a Valentine’s Day mix CD to post, filled with the ups and downs and inside-outs of love, the hopes, dreams, and fears that go with relationships, the triumphs and the heartaches.  It was gonna be a masterpiece.

But after all my listening, sorting, ordering, and creating, I have nothing to post because Internet Explorer has decided not to let me upload files, for whatever reason.

I guess I’ll try again tomorrow, after Valentine’s Day is over and the mix CD will be pointless, but for now, here’s the track list:

1. Steven Delopoulos – She Held My Hand
2. Bob Dylan – Girl from the North Country
3. Rosie Thomas – Say Hello
4. The Innocence Mission – Love That Boy
5. Destroy Nate Allen – Ambulance
6. Aaron Sprinkle – Really Something
7. Dave Thompson – Overboard Love Song
8. Michael Blair Project – Peace to You
9. Jesse Sprinkle – Sunsites
10. Bill Mallonee – Here Comes the Heartache
11. Don Peris – Catherine-Anne
12. Waterdeep – Diana
13. Fine China – Are You on Drugs?
14. Sufjan Stevens – The Mistress Witch from McClure
15. Relient K – Faking My Own Suicide
16. Ben and Bruno – New Friend

As you can see, it was gonna be an amazing CD exploring love in all its dimensions, so hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to upload the songs.  Come back then to check it out, and in the meantime, download the album cover above.
