Always on the outside, always looking in...

Dylan and I have made what is essentially a perfect mix.
It is called Ping of Pong.

On the fourth of July (July 4th) while listening to his "High Five!" mix, I had the idea that Dylan and I should collaborate on a mix for all of you nice people. The idea was that we'd take turns back and forth until the mix was completed with each new song having to somehow relate to the song before it.
From that, Dylan came up with the idea of calling the mix "PONG" (... you know, because we were going back and forth).
I thought this was particularly brilliant of him.
Going off around two hours of sleep, the title "Ping of Pong" (see King of Kong) made me giggle like a school-girl so I shared it with Dylan.
Apparently he hadn't had much sleep either, because he liked it too.

Then he made the awesome cover you see above and it suddenly became a great title no matter how much sleep you've had.

We're planning on offering an explanation of sorts as to how the songs are connected at some point soon, but I'd love to hear any of your theories on how/why one song leads to another.

April, thanks on the cover compliment. The mix was way fun to put together. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we (I'm assuming Chris enjoyed it) enjoyed putting it together.
