Cover image is an a amalgam of found images:
yes.. I used powerpoint for part of it.. Any tool available should be used, I say.
I like patterns. This specific compilation is pretty simple, it is a psuedo-bellcurve. begining at one minute, each track increases in length by 30 seconds. at the six minute thirty second mark, the trend goes back down.Simple enough.
Creating a themed compilation around restrictions like this is actually pretty difficult, but can be accomplished. I am not going to advise what the theme is, but will gladly accept speculation on the matter :) If you figure it out and ask me, I will let you know.

I am always looking for ways to improve, so please leave positive and negative feedback..
- Compiled for continuity from the first song to the last. If burning to CD, it should be burnt to disc “gapless” in order to remove any annoying interruptions and play smoothly. Playing on MP3 these gaps are fairly inevitable, if you use a crossfader, I would suggest no longer than 1 second.
- Please listen to it from beginning to end at least the first time. First time through, the song order is important. everything is placed in a specific relationship with the song before and after. After the first play through, skipping to tracks you enjoy will not detract from the overall feel of it.
- This compilation was created to fit on an 80 minute CD-R
