Music is eternal, but we are not.

I started a project for my 33 birthday documenting all my favorite records since the year I was born.  Ideally I wanted to dj a set by picking one song from each year, but the task proved to be impossible. You can see I am still working on the list and I plan to make it a lifelong project.  It is a fun project to do.  You should give it a try.
