Music Monday

Day 5—A song that reminds you of someone.

While there's lots of songs I associate with a variety of people and places, this is the one that has the strongest (and oldest) association.

My oldest and most frequented Internet haunt is Room With a Moose, a fan site dedicated to the long-canceled Invader Zim. This was back in high school, and after a couple years of message boards and chatrooms we decided to make our Internet friendship a meatspace reality. The first "MooseCon" happened in 2003, and to mark the occasion we all submitted music to one member, who picked out the best song or two from a person, put it on a CD, and make us a soundtrack. Another member did cover art, and thus began a tradition of twenty-first century collaborative versions of mixtapes.

This was one of my favorite songs from the first one, which even today is pure magic to listen to.

And happy post-Rapture, everyone!
