When we moved to Texas four years ago, it snowed that first Christmas. Everyone swears up and down that it doesn’t snow here…yet every year, snow. And everyone’s flabbergasted! “What?! It never snows here!” Hey, guys! It snows here! Get over it. I miss the Chicago snow…I’d give anything to be in this weather again. You can’t build snowmen out of this. You can’t build forts. You might be able to ice skate somewhere…if they had salt trucks and plows to clear the roads…Instead, it just melts…refreezes…melts into mush…refreezes into treacherous ice islands in the streets…upon which, they throw some sand at it and hope it does some damage.
So here’s to going stir crazy. To having cabin fever. To being locked inside your apartment for FOUR days. Every time we leave to get food, cigarettes, booze (for the nights, you see…instead of a fireplace)…we’re risking our lives on the ice-laden streets of Denton.
So to keep you entertained on your many hours inside, if you’re snowed in, an ode to snow to help keep you warm, wherever you are.

One of our favorite things about Mixtape Masters, if you haven’t guessed, is being spurred into looking for new music or old music that has somehow gone undiscovered to us. We discovered the ultra rad Phoebe Snow and Zoot Woman as well as Electric Presidentthis week, which are all definitely worth a listen.
For more mixtape master madness, check out these peops: Hi-Fi Weddings, One Cat Per Person, Tylre, My SF Budget Wedding, Fashion Under 100, Dead Flowers, Jo Rooting, Craft My Life, Another Damn Life, Casa de Kaloi, Bunnies’n Beagles, Something Different, Savoir Weddings, Existing Between Reality and Dreams and Fancy Notion.
