Mortal Mix Tape

I've often wished my life had its own personal soundtrack. I mean, it sort of does inside my head...just last week, Beyonce' was driving me insane by living inside my head and singing "To the left, to the left" at exceedingly inappropriate times. But I'm talking about the sort of soundtrack that plays out loud over events like in a movie. I want to be Molly Ringwald getting dressed for school to the sounds of the Psychadelic Furs telling me I'm pretty in pink. Actually, I just want to be Molly Ringwald, but that is another story entirely. Anyway, since you know how I like lists, here is the soundtrack to Christopher's life.

What a clever and sassy way to musically represent yourself. All good films have soundtracks so why shouldn't ones life! Here I may try it myself later on - if that's okay....?

Love the Squeeze and Crowded House choices, Chris.

Hey I just wanted to say hello to you. I hope law school is going well for you.

Lena, feel free...I stole it from a friend's Myspace page anyway! Oh, and Squeeze and Crowded House were very underappreciated in this country. I saw Crowded House live in Cincinnati years ago, and they were fantastic (opening act: Sheryl Crow two months before she became famous).

Hi Ces, law school sucks! :) They added Criminal Law to our schedule on top of everything else, and I really dislike it. I'm much more worried about finding a job for the summer than anything else, though.
