Say It With Alanis Morrisette

I worked with a guy once who used to make annual mix tapes and label them 'Stu's Hits' in thick black permanent marker, adding the year at the end ... just like 'Hits of 1990' or 'Summer 88' (which are real titles from my real one-time music collection).  While we all have the technology, it's like we haven't thought about continuing the 'mix tape' tradition with the thoughtful exchange of USB flash drives to mark an occasion, such as a birthday or a road trip, but for the love of all things retro, somebody HAS come up with a way to bring the mix tape love back.  I for one would be happy to start the ball rolling with a little gift to someone like you that today would feature 'Sunny Afternoon' by The Kinks, 'Little Birdhouse In Your Soul' by They Might Be Giants' and 'Phantom Limb' by The Shins... just becoz.
