Courtney’s Mix Tape


The Banshees love to travel, but we all have different styles of going about it.  When I go someplace new, I like to make a playlist for bus rides, or runs that coincides with my travel destination.  I stock up on movies and books that have the place I’m visiting as the setting, and I coordinate my costumes, eh hem, my ensembles accordingly.


When Courtney told me she was going on holiday in Cambodia, I got all giddy and she looked at me strange.   When she told me she was going to continue traveling and spend one night in Bangkok, I clapped my hands at the thought of the luck of her vacation soundtrack, again she looked at me with her naive eyes (and ears) and said “what?”.  “Ah Cupcake”,  I said,  “you,  your country bumpkin and hip hop playlists need a music lesson.  Don’t worry, I’m gonna make you a mix tape”.

Drum roll please.
