I still make mix tapes now and then, or I guess I'd have to call them compilation CDs now. ("Mix tape" sounds so much sexier.) I decided that from time to time some of the comp CDs are what I want to talk about here in my blog. My first entry - which may come as no surprise to you - is all about Star Trek.
Ever since I went to that "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" Soundtrack Celebration a few weeks ago, I haven't been able to stop thinking about Star Trek. I've been reading old books I have and watching episodes again on DVD and Blu-ray. It just hit the nostalgia button in me and put me in a nice, warm, geeky place.
Before the event, I went through my Star Trek CD collection, music from the various TV series and films, and found a few comp CDs I'd made not that long ago. One that stood out was a CD filled with music from the original TV series. GNP Crescendo produced a lot of licensed Star Trek soundtracks during the 80's, featuring the underscores composed for Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. I think I bought every single one they ever released at the time. The music from the original series was especially fun to listen to.
