Though I'd been uploading music to the Internet since the beginning of the decade, my first real mix was a collection of Christmas songs posted back in 2005. These last four years have been an interesting trip; through music blogging I've made the acquaintance and friendship of endless talented musicians, writers, artists and knowledgeable music lovers, many that taught me a thing or two. Usually, my yearly Christmas post looks back at the accomplishments of the past twelve months, there's no danger of that occurring this time 'round. It's been a somber and sobering year for most that read this, surviving this one is an achievement - I'll leave all that for my year-end post, I rather keep this as pleasant as possible. Thanks for being here, though things could be better, I'm going into 2010 feeling upbeat - hopefully, you are as well. Without further ado, on to the music...
