Mixtape: The Art of Giving Up 2 (730 Days)

This is the sequel to The Art of Giving Up, my ninth most popular mixtape, created almost exactly one year ago. Like the first one, this is a nearly interminable collection of outsider audio: odd music, odd spoken word, odd home recordings -- basic oddness. Since my interest in such work was directly inspired by the people behind the internet-famous 365 Days Project, this second volume consists entirely of selections that were published on that site in its two non-consecutive years of active updating. WFMU currently hosts the archives.
