40th Commemorative Mix Tape

I didn't "commemorate" anything with this mix. This was my first mix started at my new job at WMGX. As a result, it's chock full of easy classic rock from the WMGX CD library. 100 minutes.

Emma

Despite marrying Chris Martin, moving to London, and having several half-English babies with peculiar names, Gwyneth Paltrow is still technically American. Gwyneth does a terrific English accent, as heard in Emma, Sliding Doors, Shakespeare In Love... (Maine Mall Cinema)

A Time To Kill

Professionally staged with an all-star cast. At 149 minutes, it's a little long, and definitely too episodic. Quite satisfying nonetheless.
