mix post: shiny & new edition

Robert Frost once wrote, "The best way out is always through." Having a birthday that directly follows on the new year means this a ripe time for renewal for your lowly correspondent. It's been quite some time since there was a mix post entry (September, in fact), so I thought the coming of the new year was a perfect occasion to give tribute to the power of music that spurs us on.
