On Tiny Mix Tapes you can submit a theme for a mixtape and someone will make you a track listing for the mix. The archive of mixes is pretty awesome. My favourite theme so far is called, we have tricked a homophobic future investment banker into thinking my male friend desperately wants him. now we need a tape to continue the ruse, and to accompany the cupcakes we’re putting on his doorstep. I’m also kind of partial to Soundtrack to low-budget movie about a group of mid-twenties misfits joined together by their love of horror movies and cross dressing (both guy to girl and vice versa).
Speaking of homos and corporate schmucks, this morning Mattilda brilliantly skewered this article about how gay company executives are turning back the tide on homophobia and increasing productivity, just by existing:
Snyder tells us that “out-of-the-closet gay executives in companies like Deloitte, Disney and Morgan Stanley are managing employees who report significantly higher levels of job engagement, satisfaction and morale than employees of straight managers in other environments.” Isn’t that so cute? Singing show tunes and organizing potlucks have really paid off for the corporate gays — they keep their employees in line by entertaining them! That’s right, if you do the can-can right, your employees don’t even notice that they’re indentured servants.
