I love my friends. But I love my music even more.

Whenever someone close to me has a birthday, I make them a specific mixtape tailored to their interests. Sometimes I combine them if two friends have close birthdays. Depends on how many blank CDs I have or how lazy I feel.

And since all these compilations are different and fun and awesome, I figured I should share them with you.

NOTE HUNGRY
(made for Connor. His taste in music is a lot like mine, but with more house/ambient/trance stuff. I think this is a result of dating for seven months. Anyways, he's the only kid I know who likes Joy Division as much as I do.)

2. Suicide - Cheree
3. No Age - Teen Creeps
4. Hüsker Dü - Broken Home, Broken Heart
5. Liars - Let's Not Wrestle Mt. Heart Attack

Some shoegaze, some trip hop, a little no wave. Funfunfun.
