My Favorite Mix Tape

This tape used to live in my mom's Honda Accord, back when I used to drive to the mall or music lessons or wherever.

It was given to me by a girl named Ryan, one of my few "online friends" from the late '90s/early '00s.

I never knew I liked Sonic Youth or Prince or the Pixies until I listened to the songs on this mix.

I have since lost the tape, but I still have the case. Ryan, where are you now?
