Shop Your Closet (or Music Library)
With all of the talk about the economy and how even more budget cuts are coming, I’m sure a lot of us are watching our spending. I’ll admit that while my requirements for purchasing a new album are probably more lax than most, not even I will buy just anything. I typically purchase a little music each week, but not last week, when I found a case of my old cds that was so good that I haven’t thought about iTunes or a music store since.
Fashion articles suggest that a good way to create a new look for cheap is to shop your closet, meaning look at some of the clothes you own but haven’t worn in a while and try mixing and matching them in different ways.
If your money is acting funny right now, don’t worry; just shop your closet, I mean music library. Whether you have 15 albums or 150, I’ll bet you can find something cool to jam to. And, to reward you for the money you’re saving, here’s an extra mix this week, comprised solely of songs from my recent rediscovery. I assure you that I’ll be wearing these out. The playlist is below.
