Getting There

So, I entered my first Interference B&C competition. Originally, I was really excited, thinking to myself, "Hey! Now you can show these people some of your musical tastes!" Well, that excitement became worry for a while when I realized my musical tastes are somewhat limited. I started off with not even half of enough material, and I was just trying to find enough to fill 60 minutes. Then, I found a great transition in the middle, one with a lot of restrained hope that sort of came out of an almost nothingness. It's a feeling in those middle tracks. So, I built around it. I tried to frame the fall into nothingness before those tracks, then after them gradually gain the hope into something great at the very end. It's a full emotional journey, my tracklist. The beginning is a realization that the world is tougher than you ever thought, and that feeling makes you sink. It's a terrible realization. Then, hope climbs back into the picture and you cease it and try to make the best of it. It happens to everyone by their teenage years, but how many of us make it all the way back up? This is almost a lifetime in just over an hour. As I write this, I feel I'm making it sound too serious, cause I never felt that way about it, but analyzing it, that's sort of what it is. I can hear the meaning much better than I can speak it, if that makes sense.

The Easy and the Fun Life of Road Trips

It's a perfect C.D. to listen to on a road trip.

This C.D. captures the simpleness and the little things in life that makes life have its meaning and excitement. It mixes a good selection of classic oldies and today's wonderful indie and alternative tunes. This C.D. is the C.D. to listen to when you are driving and you want to pump up your stereo.

I thought CIB's concept was fine -- simple and non-pretentious.

But Phillyfan has one of the best collections of songs in the competition.
