notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

2008 Music Mix, Part 1

Updated 1/4/09 7:22 PM: I changed the files to make them stay in the correct order when you put them in iTunes (hopefully) so if this has been causing problems you may want to re-download.

Continuing our tradition of sharing our favorite new music at the end of each year, here is disc 1 of my 2008 mix:


You may recall how this works, but if not here's a refresher: Follow the Rapidshare link above. Click on the "Free user" button. Wait for the timer to count down, then click the download button. Save the zip file ( to your desktop (or wherever else it will be easy to find later). Find the zip file on your hard drive and double click on it, which will create a folder called NFtMd1 with 21 mp3s in it. Drag the mp3s into iTunes and look for the album called "NFtM Matthew's 2008 Mix 1." Burn to CDR. Enjoy. Leave a nice comment.
