Me, White Noise

I'm sitting here at my computer completely disgusted with the massive amount of work that I have in front of me. Procrastination is not my friend yet I embrace it like the wanting summer breeze caressing a gentle maidens bosom (I'm not even sure what I'm talking about so dont ask). I need a vacation really bad, wait, I just came back from one. Another would be nice though. Pictures from my trip to Aruba are up on my Facebook page so feel free to check them out and become envious. Finally finished my Holiday Mixtape (or Holla day Mixtape as it's known on the streets) and believe me it's good. I am no longer calling it the Christmas Mixtape, as it may be deemed discriminatory towards our Kwanza and Festival of Lights celebrating brethren, the tracklist is as follows:

1. Coldplay - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
2. Sufjan Stevens - Come On! Let's All Boogie to the Elf Dance!
3. Arcade Fire - Jinglebell Rock
4. Death Cab for Cutie - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)
5. The Flaming Lips - A Change at Christmas (Say It Isn't So)
6. David Gray - December
7. Local H - Disgruntled Christmas
8. The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
9. Radiohead - Winter Wonderland
10. Coldplay - 2000 Miles
11. The Polyphonic Spree - Little Drummer Boy
12. Feist - Lo, How a Rose E're Blooming
13. Pas-Cal - Last Christmas
14. Sufjan Stevens - That Was the Worst Christmas Ever!
15. The Walkmen - Christmas Party
16. The Polyphonic Spree - Happy X-mas (War is Over)
17. Dave Matthews Band - Christmas Song
18. Trans Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Eve

You are all going to thank me for all of this free music I scoured the web for:

Download tons of David Gray live, rare and B-side mp3s, as well as videos

Download a whole bunch of Damon Albarn mp3s (check out the rare Blur tracks towards the bottom of the page)

Download three live Radiohead shows

Download a whole bunch of live and rare Neutral Milk Hotel mp3s

Download tons of Sublime bootlegs

Holy shit! Squirrels kill a dog. Squirrels. Fucking killed a dog. Anyone I have ever told the story about how the squirrels killed my pet turtle and doubted me, well here is your proof.
