Subject: Mixes? My bad...
M. Lynne Murphy spake thusly:
My teenagers are always trading mixes with each other.
the word isn't very new--there have been dance mix albums for a number
of years. what seems to be new is that people are calling their
homemade tapes mixes as well as the commmercially available mixes
This isn't very new, either -- or at least,
not in my crowd. We've been trading "mixes"
with each other for at least 6 or 7 years.
And I've heard "my bad" for at least 10 years,
though only recently have I heard the phrase
uttered by many people overlapping race and
