We here at Milkit Entertainment have been making running mix-tapes for years. We understand the rhythm and flow of a well-paced outdoors run, knowing that you simply can't craft a mix by cramming an hour's worth of balls-to-the-wall AC/DC singles back to back to back.
This mix was especially made for a 6-7 mile run (for those able to run an impressive, but not Olympic worthy, 7-8 minute miles).
Run, Run is intended for the open road only. Please do not listen to this mix indoors or in a car.

On Thursday, May 16, the final episode of The Office will air on NBC, bringing to a close my favorite sitcom of the last decade.
After it stepped out of the shadows from its UK predecessor, The Office became the most clever, edgy, heartwarming, and hilarious show on network television. Dare I say its second and third campaigns still stand up as two of the greatest sitcom seasons of all-time? Seinfeld made us laugh, but never made us cry. Are you telling me you didn't reach for a Kleenex when Jim finally asked Pam out on a date?
(above: Some of the following moments are worthy of a classic Jim Halpert smirk.)
Many will tell you the show has slipped over its nine seasons, but episode for episode The Office is still thoroughly entertaining. And in fairness, where do you go after you create two of the best televisions seasons ever?
Because I hold The Office in such high regard, it always stung me—much like Roy probably felt after getting a face full of pepper spray from Dwight in Season 3—when the show would veer from its tight production, direction, and writing. Keep reading →
If you were a teenager in the early '90s, you undoubtedly are familiar with the work of Bruce Stark. He is the artist responsible for crafting those memorable sports caricature shirts that everyone seemed to own when cruising the halls of their respective high school.

And when your favorite sports team won a championship, you'd hope that Bruce Stark would pen a team drawing with every player holding their pointy index fingers high in the sky.
Maybe it's because of my day job, but I'm regularly asked what music I'm listening to. For some reason I have trouble answering that question, because I'm always listening to music, but I think people want a specific answer, as in what new music am I listening to.
Whenever I'm asked this question, I should just tell the person to wait until the end of the year, when I've had time to compile my yearly best-of-playlist.
Being birthed out of a college radio show, the Free For All has gone from tape to CD to podcast format. Looking back, it's funny to think how I used to bust my hump just to dub 30 copies and homemade liner notes for my friends, and how easy it is now to share music with an audience that's limitless.
You may not like all of my song selections, but if you fall in love with at lease one, that's good enough for me.
