    There’s a girl who I am crazy about. Despite her being taken and me just not having a chance with her, I in all of my glorious pathos made her a mixtape for Christmas. She loved (who wouldn’t?). There’s nothing really message-wise in it, just introducing her to more music. Her birthday is in less than a month, so I’ve been working on another one. I finally filled up Side A.

    "Sugarcube" – Yo La Tengo
    "Mighty Little Man" – Steve Burns
    "Perfume-V" – Pavement
    "Careful" – Sebadoh
    "Exit Flagger" – Guided By Voices
    "Hyper Enough" – Superchunk
    "Start With" – Seaweed
    "Harvest Spoon" – Free Kitten
    "Stars" – Hum
    "The Desert" – Vivian Girls
    "Audrey’s Eyes" – Velocity Girl
    "Cannonball" – The Breeders
    "Tidal Wave" – The Apples In Stereo
    "Scuffle With Nature" – The Takeovers

    I think it’s a nicely done tape that giving to her will subtly suggest "Oh, you know that dude you’re dating? Yeah, I’m better."

    Do you guys have any suggestions for Side B?

    Songs so far for Side B in no order yet.

    I still have about 10 minutes to fill, and some of these songs might get cut as I order them and put them on the tape. Help is needed.

    "Friends Of P." – The Rentals
    "Ambulance" – Saturday Looks Good To Me
    "Celebrity Art Party" – The Embarrassment
    "Michael Says Not" – Mighty Mighty
    "Suki" – Unrest
    "Darl" – Buffalo Tom
    "All Sideways" – Scarce
    "Hurry! Hurry! Before It Happens Again" – Vague Angels
    "I’ll Be Your Jonny On The Spot" – Ween
    "In A Name" – Tsunami
    "Motherland" – Eleventh Dream Day

    She’s a Weezer fan, so The Rentals was obvious. She’s a big Smiths fan, so I figure she’ll enjoy Mighty Mighty stuff.

    I suppose since she’s a Smith’s fan and since you’re desperate to get with her, one choice might be Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want. Its a beautiful song and would be a great ending to side 2 in my opinion.

    She should get that hint right?

    You haven’t updated us on the mix-tape mission… Was it a success?

    She hasn’t talked much about it. I don’t think she’s had the chance to listen to it much.

    I guess I’ll find out in due time.
