The 2010 mix is here!

It’s even later than usual, but this year’s mix is done!

By far the fastest, safest, and easiest-on-my-bandwidth option is to download the mix via bittorrent. It’s easy: install this program (or this one if you’re on a Mac) and go here. Voi la.

Alternatively, you can download the mix as a single zip file from Dropbox. All files are high-quality mp3s.

I always make actual CDs for anyone who wants one (a dying art form), so send your address to realish at gmail if you’d like one. Really, you too!

If you’d like previous years’ mixes, you can find them, going all the way back to 2003, here.

The only thing I ask in return for making the mixes is that you listen to them all the way through, in order, at least a few times before they become random singles scattered throughout iTunes. Order matters!
