Memorex Memories

Memorex Memories is a new segment where Impact staffers rediscover their own mix CDs and playlists from childhood, pre-teen, and teen years.

I like to think that my inner child is alive and kicking. I watch cartoons regularly. I read picture books about dinosaurs. I eat macaroni and cheese and chicken nuggets. Well, that last one is more of a financial thing at this point, but still, I take pride in how well I’ve preserved my sense of wonder and immaturity in the face of, you know, taxes and stuff. One thing has changed during my descent into this pre-death stage of life called adulthood, and that is my musical taste. In a little over a decade, I have gone from a clueless kid with a p2p service to working for a college radio station. Enough about me, though. You came here to take pleasure in a cringe-inducing assortment of music that a fourth grader thought was “wicked sick” ten years ago.

Let me give a little background to this mix CD. The year is 2003. George W had declared “Mission Accomplished” overseas, SARS was all the rage, and it took 3 days to download the latest Linkin Park single on Kazaa. Because all I ever really did was listen to my dad’s copy of AC/DC’s Back in Black, I used p2p for pop music, “rarities,” and sound bites from movies and TV shows. This is an explanation just as much as it is a warning.
