Welcome to DPD!

The DPD Project is a thematic mix-CD project created by music geeks and best friends Chris Diamond, Chris Prokop, and Michael Darpino.

Each CD in the project has a theme that ties the songs on it together. For every theme we each pick five songs that we feel best represent it. The collected fifteen songs are then mixed together in alternating order based on our last names. The songs that end up on DPD are meant to be the very best songs for their particular theme.

We write liner notes for each song to explain why we picked it for that theme. The project has grown into a sort of musical memoir over the years since music has been and still is such a huge part of our lives.

Kathleen Hanna fits all of these categories and so many more. She is the untouchable, unattainable, impossibly furious hell-cat of the world.

I love this song. Is she making fun of the open-mouthed worship people have for her? Or is there really some bad-ass awesome chick out there somewhere that she herself adores and drools over?

This one is dedicated to all the low self-esteem, short haired, glasses/jacket/jeans wearing former Riot Grrrls that could rule the world and don't even know it because they're done with their experimental lesbian phase and now they're dating some dip-shit jerk rocker dude and listening to Deerhoof.

Whatever happened to Riot Grrls? C'mon girls. Bring the bitches back!
