Getting Out of a Car with a Shotgun

About a week and a half ago, I got an email from my friend Justin. It said “So, my friend Hank was in town this last few days and he, Sam and I made mix tapes full of songs to be played “when getting out of a car with a shotgun”. One can only assume how the shotgun will be used. I thought you might be interested in adding to the list of mixes. I’ll give you ours when you’re done.”

What popped in my head was an image of a man holding a shotgun stepping out of a car with a shotgun in slow motion while the wind whips his tie to the side. So I decided to put together a mix of music that sounded like a soundtrack to a Tarantino film. It starts off all funky and gory, but gets really weird and awkward near the end.

  1. Hi, I’m trying to download this, but it seems to be giving me “launch.php” instead of a nice mp3. Any poss. you could check the link, or use a different thing than divshare to upload it (sharebee’s nice)?

  2. Grad school happened. :|
    I plan on posting again at some point, but it just hasn’t happened yet. Hopefully 2009 will include some bloggin’. For what it’s worth, I’ll toss up a year end list, but that’s really not that interesting for other people to read.
