    Élan is forever doubting your girlfriends happiness. He believes she is somehow being cheated…you must forgive him Paul!

    Paul Trafford,
    AT LONG LAST I have found you!!!! I have spent the past three years endlessly googling your name, hoping to find trace of the man who captured the heart of my beloved!!! After examining this blog, I find my mind…boggled. How is it possible that the love of my life left me for a boy who has nothing to offer but mix cds!!! I, on the other hand, have PINK THINGS to proffer! How could she resist! She MUST be crazy!

    plugged this into my ipod and listened to it for the first time walking around in the snow storm. it set an awesome mood. i liked the song choice a lot for the most part.

    and that picture is swell too.

    what tracks did you dislike?
    there’s minimal mixing here.. mostly just waves, noise and reverb between transitions. but that’s the idea. still put the same amount of work i would into a normal mix.
