Mix Tape From A Friend: Quarterlife Recession!

My friend Neil recently made a mix tape, via video linking, concerning the phantom feeling of the "Quarterlife Crisis." Here's what Neil had to say on the matter:

The mix deals with issues of being in your twenties during the current economic slump - feeling lost/indecisive, finding a home, making sense of relationships, and a whole bunch of other good junk that no one can really put into words. It was partially inspired by this excellent article about quarterlife crisis: Go on, read it. Now!

The mix can be found in video blog format here:
(note: videos 4 and 13 start on their own, because dailymotion is a newb to video hosting. You should probably pause them immediately)

I've checked out the mix and it is very cool. Props go to Neil because the mix includes two of my very favorite songs on the matter of feeling displaced/indecisive about your life...
-"Let's Get Out Of This Country" by Camera Obscura
-"This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)" by Talking Heads.

By the way, for a sweet Arcade Fire cover of that particular Talking Heads song, check this out:
