on beautiful, sunny new england days, i could be found squirreled away in my bedroom with the shades drawn low. so low that you couldn’t tell if it were day or night. and while the rest of humanity busied themselves with healthier hobbies, i sat on my bed for hours, obsessively manipulating piles of cassette tapes into pure art. and really, the next best thing to getting the perfect combination of songs together was the making of the cover art.
for my run tonight (a steady trot to brooklyn heights, and then hill repeats by the bridge), i’ve made this playlist, which you can check out. it’s an indulgent cocktail of my favorite hip hop, lo-fi and indie music.
my taste in music baffles many. it even baffles future-me, it turns out. i’ll put together the ACTUAL playlist i made 21 years ago (which, foolishly, was handwritten on gold foil).
