Music To Turn 22 By: Catch 22

When I turned 22 I wrote a cover letter to a radio station in Madison, Wisconsin, where I was living at the time, seeking an internship. In my letter I framed my wanting to intern with them by the Catch 22 conundrum of being at the age where one wants to get experience but can’t get hired anywhere because he or she doesn’t have said experience. It got me the interview. However, I was so open to getting experience – any experience, my lack of focus caused me to lose out on that opportunity. C’est la vie.

In putting together this birthday compilation I again was still of the mindset that I needed to fill the CD up. A number of these songs I did not feel good about then, and still don’t like them now. And most of the ones I wasn’t sure about were suggestions from my BFF (sorry, Lisa) and were more her taste in music than mine. I’d say 10 of the tracks (1-4, 6, 7, 10-12, and 17) are me.
