Crank it & clean the house/do something (or someone) creative then let me know what songs you liked or hated or couldn’t believe I put next to each other. Ok, that might not work with the first track (stand-up comedy)… but after that, you should be good to go.

2013 is going to be a very musical year, I can feel it. My personal resolution is to start playing the drums again, hopefully with some awesome people but I’ll just start with getting back behind the kit.

Thank you all for being a part of my life & I hope you enjoy this eclectic mix. Cheers!
