Lazy-i Best of 2008 Compilation
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Lazy-i.com. Teresa gave me a copy of Microsoft FrontPage on my birthday back in '98, which I used to build the site's first pages based on a design by the same genius that created this CD's design -- Donovan Beery of eleven19.com. The site hasn't changed much (maybe it's time for a facelift? Donovan?). Neither has the purpose behind the annual comp CD -- to recap the best stuff I had a chance to hear throughout the past year as part of my work with Lazy-i and The Reader. It's nice to know that in a world in the midst of complete and utter change, some things stay the same.
