Working on the packaging at midnight was reminiscent of my days as a ‘zine slinger. I totally miss spending all my change on music and selling plasma for grocery money, making my own paper with my roommate’s cookie sheets and blender, and attending Black Student Union meetings for the free coffee {what?}. Somehow now bad coffee’s just bad and I forget to find new things that inspire me. Being handed some zip-tied jewel cases containing Prodigy, Bjork and Dwight Yoakam tracks will totally remind you what your life’s been missing lately, like whoa.
