I am a DJ

For today's booster club car wash fundraiser, the OG put together a playlist. She declined the obvious choice (at least I thought she did, but it seems to be there now), and was also hesitant to include anything that was in any way outside the mainstream, aiming, instead for guaranteed positive feedback over statements of individuality or an attempt at becoming a tastemaker.

I wrote about this awhile ago, citing the elusive "illusion of newness within the confines of the familiar" and, as someone who, in his salad days, communicated with girls mainly through mixtapes, I am painfully aware of how much thought and effort goes into music selection. ITunes may make it easier, but I suspect that the emotion in the game is unchanged.
