Here at the gecko-surrounded homestead Jimmy the Verizon FiOS guy used a few wires and a drill to usher us from the stone age into the twenty-first century. Now, rather than steal a neighbor’s weak wireless internet signal, I can surf the web with reckless abandon on my strong, wireless, encrypted, $40/month internet connection.
With that, here is my Weekly Mix Tape from the 120 or so songs that reside on my XM-playing Inno. This week’s version happens to consist entirely of songs I recorded straight from Lucy, XM Channel 54.
Stone Temple Pilots – Plush
Beck – Loser
Soul Asylum – Run Away Train
Collective Soul – Shine
Sponge – Plowed
Cardigans – Love Fool
Jesus Jones – The Devil You Know
Third Eye Blind – How’s It Going to Be?
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give it Away
Devo – Whip It
Although I sometimes struggle to find my XM Satellite Radio and MP3-playing inno among partially-unpacked boxes of junkola, here is my weekly mix tape:
Jars of Clay – Tea & Sympathy
Erasure – Who Needs Love Like That
The Cranberries – Linger
The Breeders – Roi
The Smiths – Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before

It’s moving day, folks!
This week’s edition of My Weekly Mix Tape comes to you, for the last time, from ZIP code 18901. Inspired by the sight of all our worldly possessions in boxes (about 150 in all – 1/3 of which are books), I am drawing this week’s 10 tune Mix Tape at random from all the music I’ve ripped to my computer so far – about 80% of my collection. Enjoy!

Erasure – Chorus
Jesus Jones – Are You Satisfied?
The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
Fatboy Slim – Right Here, Right Now
Depeche Mode – Walking in My Shoes
INXS – Strange Desire
Sarah McLachlan – Ice
New Order – Vanishing Point
October Project – Wall of Silence
As a high school kid I made a hobby of making mix tapes, stringing together my favorite New Wave, Techno Pop, and Alternative tunes on a 90 or 120 minute TDK cassette. Ah, those were the days.
Well, now with my new little toy, I can do it again – but this time without worrying about efficiently using all 45 minutes per side or sitting around a CD player all afternoon. So, here is the first installment of My Weekly Mix Tape.
This week’s mix tape of ten tunes comes to you, at random, from the 120 songs that are currently on my inno. Here you go:
Go West – Pet Shop Boys
Republica – Ready to Go (Original Mix)
Erasure – Oh L’Amour
The Smiths – Girlfriend in a Coma
Sonique – Hear My Cry
Smash Mouth – All Star
Moby – Move (You Make Me Feel So Good)
Monaco – What Do You Want From Me?
Dada – Dizz Knee Land
Pearl Jam – Jeremy
