Int. Night - A New York City Apartment
For fear of the Mayan Apocalypse, Cameron has been hiding in his bunker for 30 days, living off of a steady diet of cheeseburgers and Surge. BOOM. There is a clatter. He awakes from a deep slumber.
April is over!? But ... why?
Our hero drags his weak knees and bleary-minded body toward his sturdy company-issued laptop. He logs on to the World Wide Web, surprised to find it still intact. Suddenly, he can barely move. A singular article brings Cameron's racing mind to a grinding halt.
... Seacrest ... Must. Make. Free. Mixtape.
Ryan Seacrest has become the new World Chancellor. There is only a limited amount of time left. Cameron acts quickly to put together a mixtape of the best tunes from the month of April, 2012. The following is his list of crime-fighting indie rock that will surely electrify your frontal lobes with high-frequency awesomeness. From the gentle folk musing of Field Report to the ass-kicking torque of Torche, the mixtape was designed to give its listener an ultimate understanding of good and evil.
