So it's Saturday morning in the US, which means technically my birthday's almost over, since I was born in Indonesia, and they're +15 hours from where I am now. But I've never chosen to celebrate it like that. Instead, this will probably hit the airwaves when I'm asleep.
I'm writing all of this four days earlier, but today I turn 40. That means the 30s are over, well, my 30s anyway. Did I do enough with them? Have I started to leave a mark on the world that will outlast me? Did I bring enough positive energy into the world? Was I too afraid, too headstrong, too impatient, too argumentative, too something?
Dunno. Got four days left in my 30s. We'll see what becomes of them. And then we'll see what happens when I get into my 40s. Will the entertainer have an audience, or merely an empty room?
Look at me, getting all melancholy and shit. Anyway. This is a bunch of music I wanted to listen to, so I built this mix for me, to get me through my 40th birthday. Maybe it'll be awesome. I'd like to hope so. Regardless, it'll be a ride. You're welcome to come along as well.
