My Current Playlist; Tailgating (and coping) with Music

I love making playlists - for just about everything, but especially for tailgates/parties. I have created scores of song collections based on our weekly tailgate themes, crowd, moods, etc. This season I had started compiling one for the Nebraska game - our scheduled theme was "best of" - we were celebrating 10 seasons of knockout awesome tailgates, and I wanted to pick some excellent songs to fit the mood.

And then things changed. Drastically. I don't know if it was Wednesday or Thursday night that week, but I started a new playlist of songs that just reflected my mood at the time - most where angsty or whiney songs - but they really meant something to me. We didn't play any music at the Nebraska tailgate (which, btw, was kickarse) - but I've been listening (and adding) to the playlist ever since.

Well, I'm in a kinda bitter and sad place right now. I'm trying (no really, I am) to work my way through what has happened to Penn State in the last 2 months - and while I don't really have any answers, I do have my iPod (shoutout to Tailgate Maven!).
