I miss being able to share fan soundtracks and mixtape-like things online, but of the ones I can still share, here are some I made.

Please note that a lot of the covers for the 8tracks playlists do not appear, but they should play fine. (And if not, just click through. Any covers and/or track listing graphics were made for the FST community on LiveJournal.
