Playlist: Friendship Is Magic

There were a lot of FEELINGS at A-Camp, but one of the biggest was the friendship-joy-explosion of being around a herd of people who just get you. I started this mix coming down the mountain from last A-Camp in April and I finished it after the Labrador puppy levels of friendliness I felt this time.

This friendship mix is dedicated to all the A-Campers who make my face hurt from smiling so much. Some of these songs are obvious and cheesy, but then again so are my feelings for you queermos. Who’s up for a cuddle puddle?

  1. ALICE!! I totally had “We’re Going To Be Friends” on my original 1.0 playlist. I can tell we were meant to be friends.

  2. Oh Alice, Alice, Alice. You are beyond amazing. I don’t know if I’m more impressed by this playlist or the way you held onto that Sharpie at A-Camp. Seriously,the way you held such a death grip on that thing, I kept waiting for you to whip it out at the sex panel!

  3. I really love this! Sometimes I forget that “I’ll be there for you” is a real song and not just the ‘Friends’ opening jingle.

    Also! I just realised that I captioned the photo as “by Rachel Walker” which cannot be true given that Rachel Walker is in the photo. So props to whoever actually took it, it is amazing.
