My January featured the trail end of a visit to San Francisco, game prototypes, Pizza Wars 7, and designing the “I Love Pizza” exhibit.

A couple of these songs were featured in movies that I saw in January. The Sia song was in Lion (2016) and the Talking Heads song was in 20th Century Women (2016).

I broke my rule about only featuring one song by the same band on a mix by including both Weezer songs from their split 7″ with Wavves. Sorry.

They’re surprisingly hard to purchase—especially without buying an entire game of jacks. If anyone has a lead on where to buy them in bulk, let me know. Photographed January 10, 2017.
