I know, I know, the music mixes have long since departed Blast-O-Rama, but honestly, it’s because I wound up devouring far less new music this year on a steady basis than in years prior.
I mean, a new relationship, a lay off, the job search, writing two different a comics and plotting the best live art competition ever will do that to you.
Never the less, I’ve brought back the music mix for A YEAR IN REVIEW SPECIAL!
Here are, hands down, my favorite tracks from 2008. I’ll pop back tomorrow with a run down of my favorite albums and movies of ’08.
