Tiny Mix Tapes

For a few of my unemployed months, I have been submitting mix tapes to the website Tiny Mix Tapes for their Automatic Mix Tape Generator. I am a robot. So I figure most of you out there don't know this, so I decided that I will post all the mixes I have had put up on the site up to this time here so you can check some of em out. If any of them sound fun to you, let me know and I can hit you with a copy. Remember, these are mixes random people have requested and NOT my themes directly.

I want to blow up the world.

This is a strange concept I came up for this, but if you want to blow the world up, you must have a lot on your mind. Here's a mix with both your full fledged anger at the world around us and your obvious paranoia.

(The Cops Are On to you! Go into Hiding!!)
09. Secret Machines- "I Hate Pretending" (Ten Silver Drops)
10. Pavement- "Cream of Gold" (Terror Twilight)

(As the heat blows over, you come above ground and see what you have finished with your plans. The sweet euphoria of success comes late in the track, but first you see the destruction you have caused.)
11. Godspeed, You Black Emperor!- "The Dead Flag Blues" (F# A# Infinity)
12. Pink Floyd- "Goodbye Cruel World" (The Wall)

Songs to listen to during the first night of a 72-hour period during which you are kept awake by snorting many lines of blue adderall powder

Note from Cropulis: These are songs I find disgustingly addictive, almost to the point where I need to listen to them over and over again. Also, they are a bit nuts and fun to hop around and bounce of the walls to. I feel this is fitting for the type of 72 hour marathon that you may venture into.
