Leiurus/Dendrobatidae from mathewkumar on 8tracks.

I’ve been terrifically busy and despite starting this Tumblr with the best of intentions, I haven’t managed to do much else but scroll through other Tumblrs, mouth agape, wondering if I should “reblog” this or that and then never bothering.

To tide you over, I’ve decided to maximize the leverage of my cross-social network presence by posting up an 8tracks mix of my This Is My Jam “jams” on my tumblr (which I will then tweet and post on Facebook about.)

Joking aside, my initial foray into This Is My Jam was a genuine attempt to see if I could use it to (very slowly) build up pleasing mixtapes, and you can definitely see that here—tracks mostly work one after another, and there are thematic links; some hidden, some obvious, even though I really was just selecting the music I was most “feeling” at the time. Like the best mixtapes, if you put in the effort, it’s personally revealing. But you will have to put in some effort, considering the second track is straight-up death metal.
