OK, you bastards. Here's the deal:
I just finished up a super-secret mix CD of all of my favorite drinkin' songs. It's a special mix made for drunks, by a drunk, while drunk.
Musically, it's all over the place. I assembled the rough list over the last couple of weeks, but once I got in front of the burner (and a few glasses of Michter's Small Batch Unblended American Whiskey down) all the rules went out the window. I cut tracks, I added tracks, and (somehow) I mislaid one of the CDs before I could get the track I wanted in the mix. I decided (with about 15 minutes left of recordable space) that if it didn't have 'Nellie the Elephant' by the Toy Dolls on it, then it was worthless. That song ain't even about drinkin' - It's about an Elephant that escapes from the circus, but (nonetheless) it's the greatest drinkin' song ever... Because I said so, that's why.
The mix is brilliant. It's meant to be put on repeat and let go. The mix is much better the third time around (and 11 rounds along). I'm seriously diggin' it - my liver is not.
So, how do you get yer filthy semen encrusted hands on this bitch? Don't e-mail me - this one ain't so easy. In order to get a copy of this mix you need to get it directly from me, and I need to be drunk. Them's the rules. I'm bringing back a fist-full of these puppies back to IL with me. Get a few rounds in me, and once I start slurrin' these things will loose themselves from my clutches like the spoils from a bourbon pinata. That way, I get a chance to blather on about how great track # 25 is, and why I put on track # 22, or talk about the relationship between track #5 and Track #6... blah, blah blah.
A good time to ask for the CD is when I'm trying to get the bartender to play it in the bar by using only grunts and hand gestures, or vomiting in the corner - both times are golden.
The IL contingent is getting the first crack at this mix, so you DC folks will have to wait 'til September to catch me in The Hunt, Black Cat, or DC9. I'll be seeing you soon - You bring the whiskey, I've got the tunes.
