    Not much different from my highschool mixtape, the only thing that’s missing is some power/epic metal

    I had some of those songs on my mix tapes as well. although mine had more smashing pumpkins korn and The Cure. but I have more fond memories taping songs off the radio. which for me was more challenging I had a radio tape player combo with a mic built in. so I had to make sure to be real quite when taping off the radio and praying no one came in started talking to me cuz it would definitely pick that up on the microphone.

    Congratulations! You gave up doing Monster Madness for this?!? You were supposed to put out horror content throughout the year. I can honesty say you put out ZERO quality content this year. Just a bunch of mediocre vanity projects. So I say again, congratulations.
