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

socio-economic backgrounds.
