Hey, did I turn you on to the Mendoza Line? Also, what did you fiddle with?

Yeah, you totally did. I don't remember what the song was, but it was on one of the mixes you sent me a few years back.

As to what I fiddled with--I added Beck, Wilco, Aimee Mann, Stevie Wonder, Metallica, Tom Petty, the 'Mats, the Police, Sly & the Family Stone, R.E.M., Bowie, Waits, Loretta Lynn, the New Pornographers, Midnight Oil and maybe one or two others. (At this point I forget.) There were a lot of pretty irrelevant/personally distasteful artists from the late '70s/early '80s on there. Although in retrospect, I should have at least added the Ramones in there.
