13 years ago today, I landed in Los Angeles with nothing but a suitcase full of sweaters, a handful of CDs, a walkman, and fear. None of these things useful in any way, combined or on their own.
This is about 52 mins. It’s long. I’m sorry. Once the ball got rolling, I kept finding more stuff to add. I also found a song about mayonnaise I was coerced into doing, but that’s not on the mix. Maybe some other time. It would go nicely with that song about my menstrual cramps, or that other one about doing things on your own under the sheets. Right, anyway.
