spring broke

some signs point to i should make a mix for spring, about now. which would have to be called:


spring mix (what else.)

here's one: three seasons ago it was summer ['06 ] and i made popsical. three seasons before that it was autumn ['05] and i made october is eternal. three seasons before that it was winter ['04-'05] and i made wintry mix. and now it's spring ['07] and a seasonal mix might be due.

this was basically the first mix i ever made for mass distribution. i devised a way to fold paper sleeves for it, and passed them around a few days before spring break at college. it still sounds pretty great to me:
