So I finally got around to compiling a Micromix for the Deerhunter blog. I planned on having it done weeks ago, but in the words of Cheech Marin watching the ghost-Titanic in Ghostbusters 2: better late than never.

The mix consists of a bunch of second Golden Age era-cuts, most of which you guys probably already know, some which you might not. Anyhow, it came out well and is worth checking out if if nothing else but for the commentary on the songs themselves, that may or may not include the secret revelation that the Pharcyde’s “Passing Me By” was slated for inclusion on Home Alone IV: Passed over Passover. Not to mention the rarely discussed fact that Black Sheep’s “The Choice is Yours” was an underground anthem in the pro-choice movement.” Either way, I hope you like it .

You’ve got a fairly attractive wife who may or may not have been in the film Red Sonja . Utah just isn’t the place for you. AK-47 might actually go down in history as the only man on earth to ever request a trade to Siberia.
