Broke Ass Stuart’s
Listen Up: Valentine’s Day Soundtrack

I was thinking today … what if your Valentines Day was a movie?
Perhaps you were asked to be the director of said movie. The producer wanted the movie to be a silent one, and all the scenes would be set to music. The location scout informed you that cameras would just follow the main character from the point they woke up … to the moment they went to bed. And then you found out that the main actor/actress was you? What would the soundtrack of your day be?

I decided to create the soundtrack of my Valentines Day using all local SF bands.
Here is my “romantic” story … told by a play list that rocks:
