Mix Tapes

Here’s the deal: Send us a thought, phrase, question, quotation, or whatever else, and if one of our mix tape robots fancies your suggestion, the crazy set of circuits might just make a mix tape out of it — well, at least a tracklisting for a mix tape out of it. Request a mix here, and help us compile mixes here.
