In honor of this very special day in history, of which I need not remind you as it is such a momentous event, ubiquitous in every child’s school book and classroom, we’ve taken great care with this week’s mixtape. It was important to really try to sum up the complex feelings of the day, to crystallize what it means to be what this is, in all its myriad aspects. I think you’ll agree on first hearing this that we’ve achieved something that’s… Wait for it… Epic.
And if you have no idea what this mixtape is pertaining to, for shame! You really ought to know, and if you don’t, I’m certainly not spoon-feeding you the answers. No sir, or ma’am. Wallow in your own ignorance.
