Marusin Compilation 2007

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

Another year, another Compilation. This is Volume 7 which amazes me that I have committed to doing this each year for so long. Every year I come very close to not putting things together but something at the last minute pushes me through. I created an iMix of this year’s compilation (which includes everything besides [...]

Am I a Rock Critic in Training?

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007

Listening to the last episode of Sound Opinions for 2006 (via their podcast), both Dero and Kot’s 2006 “End of the Year” Mix Tapes look eerily similar to the Marusin Compilation 2006. I don’t know what that says about my music tastes. I’m somewhat annoyed. :) They do say that all rock critics are failed [...]

Marusin Compilation 2006

Thursday, December 28th, 2006

It’s 2006 (well, the end of the year I guess) and it’s time to put together the annual compilation (#6, but who’s counting!). I didn’t think it was a good year for music, but then I started going back to what I listened to throughout the year and I guess it was much better than [...]

It’s not the end of the year yet, right?

Wednesday, December 27th, 2006

It’s been a crazy holiday (and I’m sure that I’m not the only one that feels that way). Anyways, we’ve been out and about all week and I haven’t had much time to wrap up the compilation (actually, I shouldn’t say that! The compilation is complete, it’s the distribution mechanism which I should have outsourced [...]

Changes to the Marusin Compilation this year

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

I’m going to be doing things a bit differently for the annual Marusin Compilation this year for a couple of reasons (lack of time being a major one)… I’ll get more into the details later, but if for some reason you don’t think you’re going to get a copy, leave a comment on this post [...]

Marusin Compilation 2005

Monday, December 26th, 2005

Here we are again, 2005 and another year-end compilation. Lots of good music this year, so without further ado, here’s what I put together: 01.) “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House” – LCD Soundsystem So many great songs on this double cd, might as well go with the one everyone knows… It was between [...]

Compilation a’comin

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

The elves are busy cranking away putting together the annual compilation. Somehow Christmas has snuck up on me and I just realized over the last couple days that I had to get my act together… :)

Marusin 2004 Compilation

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2004

If you’re just tuning in, it’s become tradition in the marusin(.com) household to record a year-end compilation of some of the best songs that I stumbled upon in the preceding year. 2004 marks the fourth annual compilation and honestly some of the best songs yet. I wouldn’t say 2004 was a break-out year for “whole” [...]
