Mixtapes can come in different forms--sometimes a mixtape is just a collection of one's favorite tracks, sometimes it is a collection of tracks put out by a sinlge artist. Sometimes they have small edits made to them, like a DJ saying their catchphrase.

Try creating a mixtape of your own. Mixtape is broadly defined in this case. It can just be a collection of songs with some theme (genre, etc.), or you can mess with the tracks. You can add a small touch here and there or edit the tracks to your heart's content, adding outside sounds using tools from your favorite audio editing software.

I've been playing around with Audacity, which is free, so that cold be a good place to start.

I put together this playlist with superhero-type characters in mind.  I really love how in movies certain songs are played along with the introduction of a character and at the climax of that movie.  These are meant to be character and moment-defining songs that stick in your head.  The …

My Cleaning Playlist

Cleaning and organizing can be difficult in silence. That’s why I must have a cleaning playlist. I like for most of the songs to be upbeat to keep me moving. If classical music was playing, I’d probably end up laying in bed while looking at old photo albums or something. …

Who doesn’t love making playlists/mixtapes? I might have went a little overboard with 29 tracks, but let’s just say it’s Volume 1 and Volume 2. Almost all of these are early 2000s music from when I was a kid. It’s basically of a mixture between pop, R&B, boyband music, and …
