I Love/Hate Valentine’s Day Mix Tapes, Volume 2

14 Feb

Golden Girls Valentine

Well, that special day is here again. A day that is either filled with romance and love and chocolate and wine, or a day that is filled with hatred and resentment and pizza and vodka. For me, it will be just another Friday, because take-out = love in our house, and we get take-out every Friday.

Breaking Bad Valentine

Last year, I told you all about how my friends and I used to drive around and drop off Valentine’s Day mix tapes to one another each year, and I made my own for you. Well, I’ve decided to keep my little Valentine’s tradition alive and do it again. This time there’s even more poppy goodness and dramatic sadness. So, if this holiday makes you more in love with love than you already are, go ahead and play the Love is the Best! mix.

But if you wish someone would take everyone’s happiness and crush it into small pieces and then stab those pieces with a paring knife so they can be thrown in the river, then maybe the Fuck Love mix is more up your alley.

Or maybe you want a little of both! Either way, make sure you call your friends today and tell them you love them because they’ll always be there to make mix tapes for you…

    […] And the tradition lives on. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (the corner of Saturday and Saturday), so it’s time to sit in your office and listen to a soundtrack that expresses your excitement, or impending dread, for what’s ahead. And maybe you’re just apathetic, which I can also respect. I love love, but as years go by there is one thing that makes me feel pretty ho-hum about this important national holiday – I like to celebrate anything by eating in a restaurant, and Valentine’s Day has now made it impossible for me to enjoy this simple pleasure. Everywhere you turn there is some Prix-fixe menu that looks like this: […]
