Mix Tapes and Poems

    If you grew up in the 80s, you know the gorgeousity that is the Mix Tape.
    The Limited Edition John Booth Mix Tape titles included "Things Always Kept in a Glass on My Desk","Silent Fields on a Moonless Night", and "A Sunlit Bridge, a Duck in the Clouds, and a Dream of a Boat Called ‘Birdhouse.’" Mostly these were born in my first two years of college, when a) I was introduced to scads of new music and b) I was a DJ on WBGU and had access to a recording booth and piles and piles of albums.
    My college friend Katrina – a fantastic writer, by the way. Seriously. Throat-clutch good – takes the Mix Tape concept to stratsospherically cool levels in this article for Poets & Writers.
    Don’t believe me? John Green ("Looking for Alaksa") digs her. Take his word for it.
