When You Were Young and Wise

I'm going through a bunch of mixed CDs all titled with dates that were made around my freshman year of high school. I'm finding out I had truly appalling taste in music. Appalling and varied. One CD alone (07/15/2001) had Brandy, Neal Diamond, REO Speedwagon, BBMak, the Righteous Brothers (I went through a Top Gun phase, don't ask), Dashboard Confessional, and Alanis Morrissete. I find the occasional Jimmy Eat World, Greenwheel, or Incubus song that make me feel a little better about myself.

Thankfully my musical tastes have mostly improved. The internet has really helped me expand my musical horizons, so I never have to listen to the radio to discover new music. Thank God.

If I still liked the same music I liked in the 90s, today would be a sweet, sweet day. Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, and Tupac all have albums out today. Oh, the 90s.

I am going to buy the BSB album for you for xmas. That is, unless you bought it already and just don't want to tell people about it. :)

And don't worry...I was going through some of my mixed cd's from high school with Ness a couple of weeks ago and she just laughed at me. I hanged my head in shame.

Oh yeah, like you are so old now. Sheesh.

You graduated from high school in 2005?

Fuck. Me.

I feel ancient.

And I still love to hear a little Righteous Brothers every now and then. Between Top Gun and Ghost, it's okay to admit you like it.

That other shit, though . . .

Josh: I may or may not already own it.

Mr. Fab: I know, right. 23 is looming.

Avitable: I graduated in 2003, if that helps. the cd from 2001 was my sophomore year
