The Second Playful Page 

An album of playful music, curated by Warren & elle

Playful is a book with two introductions, 12 chapters, also a few spare parts.

Each section has a song, as you can see here. Now, the book's not ready yet,

but the music's out there. So we thought, Why not?  Warren and elle bring you

the songtrack you didn't even know you were waiting for, plus a few links, if

certain nameless Ph.D. can figure out how to post them here. [Thanks, elle!]

Picture a vinyl album of 16 boss tracks, shimmering and hovering over your

neighborhood like a UFO in a really bad 50's movie. But a friendly musical UFO.

Warning: Prolonged exposure may induce whistling, foot-tapping, and dancing.
