mixtape: traveling tunes

I hate the process of traveling, but I love going places. Go figure. Due to my disdain for the process of travel, especially air travel, I needed to piece together what I would consider a calming influence for it. An espresso and a good mix of music later and I’m usually alright. The return trip home from Madison, Wisconsin was a balance of the serenity I sought and the aggression I feel when navigating throngs of people, security, scheduling, luggage retrieval and the sight of home coming into view from the aircraft window. I grew up on thrash and speed metal so there’s always a bit of a soft spot for it and although many of these bands are derivative of one another they all bring something to the table that makes them stir my heart and keep me sane. It was a great trip and this was what I considered a great way to end it.
