I made a mixtape for a girl.

Something was really lost when the mixtape died. You see once upon a time a boy could make a mixtape for a girl. I personally took part in that exact ritual. The music on the tape represented how cool I was and the lyrics on each song were specific planned out messages. I took pride in knowing I had to coolest music. I walked the streets of NYC going from record store to record to be sure of just that fact. It’s a shame every tune in now just one click away. I wonder what teenage boys are giving girls these days.
