Trials + Tribulations


Everybody Makes Mistakes

every body

So I made it back from Utah, found a house to live in a couple weeks, but am still mega tired from the nonstop drive. Twenty-three hours in a car is a long time, I don’t care who you are. Especially when there’s no cruise control.

Anyway, I had a good time in Utah. My friend, DJ Fader and I had another house/basement party (we made these cool self-congratulating flyers) and it was fun too. I made this mix also, so you can enjoy some of the tunes we played.

2882639175_4a7c093ebe_bYou probably remember Dragonette from their track “I Get Around,” or maybe the Midnight Juggernauts remix of said song. Anyway, they’ve covered Calvin Harris’s “The Girls” but changed the gender. I guess this is kinda old. Whatever.
