This is going to surprise you, but I love making music mixes. When I was supposed to be compiling The Family Mix I spent way more than my allotted time putting together the video playlist at the back of the book. And with the memoir I’m polishing and tweaking right now, I inevitably decided to add a playlist at the back, and pretty much that’s where all my polishing and tweaking energy is channeled right now.
You know what else I think is pretty boss? You guys. You are so kind to stop by and read this blog week after week, to leave comments here, to share my posts on Facebook and Twitter. I don’t take it for granted, not a second of it, because I know you all are busy and being pulled in twenty directions. I’m really grateful that you make the time in your day to read my nattering.
So I was thinking about an appropriate way to wrap up the year and it came to me with all the deliciousness of a Reese’s Peanut Butter cup: two great tastes that taste great together! My readers, and a music mix.
I’m going to make a personalized music mix for a Midlife Mixtape reader.
Here’s how it’ll go down. If you’re interested in entering, leave a comment below with your top three favorite artists. That way I won’t send you something full of rap when you’re all about Kenny G (although to be fair, I don’t know WHAT I’d send a big Kenny G fan.) I promise it will be eclectic; it’ll have some new stuff, some old stuff, and something to make you shake your rump-a. Beyond that, I await inspiration from your Top 3 List.
I’ll take entries until Tuesday, December 10 at 5 pm PST. Then I’ll start mixing.
Ready, set, go!
Oh, the lovely, lovely trumpets in this piece. Make sure to listen to their dulcet tones.
