Roots, Canals, Wisdom, Extraction: A Mixtape
I’ve made a lot of mixtapes and put some of them on the Internet. Here are some that you can download now. Here are two you cannot. And here’s a new one. It is a two-disc set of my favorite songs from December 2011-March 2012. In that time, I’ve had two teeth pulled from my head and another drilled straight through, down to my gums. My mouth is permanently changed. I chew like a llama, softly and with delicate purposelessness. I feel different. There’s a new relationship between my mouth and my ears. One makes the other sensitive. I rattle more. That may have affected this collection.
I definitely put a Lana Del Rey song on here, FYI. OK, bye.
Reblogging this both sympathetically (I need to have my wisdom teeth out soon, and am too much of a pansy to make the appointment) as well as expectantly (because if Fennessey’s listening to it, I know that I should, too).
