Presenting The Total Absorption Mix!

The first online edition of the Green Monkey Music Project has been completed, and is available for download!

I'll probably write a little blurb later today on this here blog discussing my selections.

If the participants of this mix want to discuss their own selections, please feel free to do so! I'll put a pointer on this post if you end up posting about it on your own blog (or you could always just add comments here, I suppose).

My post about my choices is now up.

Damn; we are some cool kids, aren't we?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Wooooooooooooo, so much good music! I downloaded it all, even my choices. My post is up also.

Splotchy for President!

Cup said...

My vote's in the Splotchy camp now, I must admit.

Splotchy said...

beth, if we ain't cool, then I don't wanna be cool. Did that make any sense?

dr mvm and beth, thanks for your votes, but keep in mind that at this point I am only a write-in candidate.

Moxie said...

I downloaded everything because my music collection needs a extreme makeover. Thanks for doing a project like this! I will have to start perusing your blog more often.

Splotchy said...

Thanks a lot for stopping by, moxie! Feel free to drop by anytime!

I hope you enjoy the songs.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I may not be entitled to vote in your fine country, but the least I can do is post a justification for my picks, which I have now done.

Splotchy said...

Excellent, barbara!

I've added the link.

Dale said...

Great idea and I've read the posts, now I will go shopping for about 15 songs I've never heard! Thanks Splotchy.

Splotchy said...

Glad to be of service, dale!
