ŏn.us.tees – ŏn.us.playlist – summer 08

I’m still debating whether I’ll include a mix cd with the online shirt orders…

it SEEMS quite obvious given my passion for music…

however, there’s the whole being “honest” part with this venture… and sending customers a CD full of music they didn’t pay for nor i received permission to send out… might be an issue…

i’m 85% “go for it” and 15% “nah, champ… let’s not do this…”

the only purpose of the CD is for the customer to get a sense of the ŏn.us.tee vibe… and a chance to expose them to some of the artists we dig… and hopefully get the artists new fans…

so… i’ll start with simply listing the playlist here…
