Orange + Green

Here is a gargantuan play list celebrating the fact that my numero uno, Ryan (orange) and I (green) have now been together for 7 whole years!

The mixtape actually collects songs from CDs we had made for each other when we 1st met in late May, 2010 ... Summer was just around the corner and the air was charged with the thrill and excitement of just having met someone special ...

The mix is filled with that sentiment, plus the dual joy of both letting the other person know what kind of music you're into and simultaneously wanting to impress that person!

Aside from the personal history this playlist encapsulates, I think it makes a rather excellent pre-Summer sort of soundtrack!

As always,

*** ENJOY ***

Twin Peaks Moods

In celebration of the arrival of the long-awaited 3rd season of the dark and mysterious Twin Peaks, I created a medley of Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch's incredible soundtrack moments from both seasons of the TV series and its accompanying feature prequel film, Fire Walk With Me.

As always,

Outside of Me

"Am I really all the things that are outside of me?"

I began seriously compiling 'mixtapes' around 7 years ago for this blog .... Back then, mixcloud didn't exist ... One had to post the compressed music file in a link and just hope that folks might download the mix and enjoy it on itunes etc ...

Now, thanks to wonderful outlets like Mixcloud, one can simply click & readily listen to the mixes! A godsend!

So I have a slight trove of mixes I created when my blog first began that never made it to mixcloud. This is one of them, and I find it still startlingly 'fresh' listening to it 7 years later! At the time, all the music on it was more or less brand new, which encapsulates a sort of thrill and excitement ...

... I think it's perfect for a warm, Spring-turning-into-Summer day!

As always,

*** ENJOY ***
