Valentine's Day Mixtape or Last Minute Gift Idea

8. Anna Kramer - I Like to Have You Near
9. Johnny Cash - 'Cause I Love You
10. The Selmanaires - Take It Slow With Me [live 1-7-2006]
11. The Rosebuds - Warm Where You Lay
12. Magnetic Fields - If There's Such a Thing as Love
13. Of Montreal - Everything Disappears When You Come Around

19. The Gurus - It's Only Love
20. Maximo Park - Kiss You Better

Update, 2/18: Took down the pic, as I presume Alex doesn't object and I agree some criticism was warranted. It's not important re: the content anyway. I shrugged it off as black humor, but don't see any reason to offend anyone.

Nice mix - perfect combination of the classic, the cliched, the alternative and the obscure!

Me and my other half have rather taken a the opposite approach, but I think it works nonetheless.

Nice pic as well - might raise an eyebrow or two!

Rachel, not that it's not my mix -- this is an Alex post. He gets all the credit here.

many thanks for the cool mix. Could really save my day, we'll see. And I wanted to ask if you'd do a repost of the VU Tribute album pretty please?

um...I generally like your blog...but seriously, that pic does more than raise an eyebrow. It is very upsetting...I just don't think it's ok to take the towers and interpret them into something as trite at a valentine...especially without any kind of explanation as to why the person drew it. I mean...falling stick figures?

There are a lot of us in nyc who simply will never have a sense of humor about this.
