The Upload Project #8: Mystery Basement CDs

Yes, The Upload Project is back- because apparently, all I did when I was in college was burn CDs. When we cleaned our crap out of the Parentals' Basement I found so many burnt CDs. The vast majority of which are untitled- and all of which are a total mystery to me. The CDs that I went through in round one were like a trip back to graduate school in Mankato. These CDs: they're a trip back to my undergraduate years, if not before that and it's... weird.

But anyway, the Mystery Basement CDs have begun. Enjoy, I guess?
