The Christmas CD Contest is still a ways off, but I’ve (of course) already compiled my playlist. I think I’m going to have a FANTASTIC and RAD 75 minutes of music when it comes time to play the CD.

This year’s theme, contributed by my beautiful wife, is “Color.”

I leave it up to interpretive guesses, to determine the nature of my CD, and ultimately, its color.  As represented through pace, mood, tempo and sometimes lyrics. It’s pretty much a DEAD GIVEAWAY. The object, for me, is not to ponder over the color, but identify with it and ponder over choices, rather than trying to figure out what color I picked.
