Upon cleaning his car for the first time since the fall of 2010, Jesse Palmer of Leavenworth, Washington recently rediscovered a ski playlist he’d made as a mix CD for the drive up the mountains.
Immediately excited about his newfound “score,” the Stevens Pass local claimed he was immediately hit by memories of deep snow. “10/11 was just such a good season man, I listened to this playlist almost everyday on the way up to the mountain.”
With a tear clinging to his eyelash, Palmer appeared to fight back a sentimental breakdown. “I’m really looking forward to cranking this puppy tonight.”
True to his word, Palmer put the cd into his retro, 90’s style garage stereo during a cookout later that night, According to reports, the party was disturbed to hear the mix of Glitch Mob, Zed’s Dead, Pretty Lights, and Alt-J. “Jesus, I can’t believe we used to like this shit,” said Palmer’s ex-girlfriend.
“Where the fuck did this CD come from Jesse?” asked another.
Immediately embarrassed, the host began frantically fast forwarding to find “that track” that was “his jam” during what “will go down as the best season ever.”
When he finally found the track in question, ‘Eyes on Fire (Zeds Dead Remix)‘, he lit up only to realize that the track is the most overly dramatic, seriously lame thing he’s ever heard.
“I don’t get it, what’s changed?, we actually liked this music at one point…”
It was at this point of the conversation when one of Palmer’s #1 ski pal and former roommate reminded Palmer, “Dude, I hated riding in your car for this very reason but you kept insisting it was ‘Dope’.”
When asked later why Palmer had not heeded his buddy’s constant ridicule, the former roommate had a simple explanation. “Listen, he was in his early 20’s when we lived together and I was almost 30. Let’s just say he was doing what people in their early 20’s do in ski towns these days– take ecstasy, ski, and listen to horrible music.”
