This is a mix CD that is [livejournal.com profile] velvetcherri's Friendship Stimulus gift. Will be uploading the actual tracks over the next few hours. Done.

Absinthe and Whiskey

1. "This Girl Is Taking Bets" - Thea Gilmore
This girl is a stencil
Of a brushstroke in the rain.
She's a ghost of the city,
She's a body through the windscreen.


2. "Control" - Poe
All those things
That you taught me to fear?
I've got them in my garden now,
And your not welcome here.


3. "Not Pretty Enough" - Kasey Chambers
Don't I make you laugh?
Should I try it harder?
Why do you see right through me?


4. "The Babysitter's Here" - Dar Williams
She says, "Do me a favor.
Don't go with a guy
Who would make you choose."


5. "Small Blue Thing" - Suzanne Vega
I am thrown against the sky.
I am raining down in pieces.
I am scattering like light.


6. "Down to Nowhere" - Thea Gilmore
Yeah, I am going down to nowhere.
Oh, it's child' s play.
We are turning up our collars,
We are hijacking the day.


7. "When I Was a Boy" - Dar Williams
And now I'm in this clothing store
And the signs say less is more.
More that's tight means more to see.
More for them, not more for me.


8. "The Pointless, Yet Poignant, Crisis of a Co-Ed" - Dar Williams
I'm not a leader,
I'm not a left-wing rhetoric mobilizing force of one.
But there was a time way back,
Many years ago, in college (don't laugh).


9. "A Kinder Columbus" - Deb Talan
Dancing down a sidewalk,
Past a honeysuckle moon.
Such tenderness and his head against mine.


10. "Closer to Fine" - Indigo Girls
And the best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously.
It's only life, after all.


11. "How Will He Find Me" - Deb Talan
I walk the world with a skin so thin.
I can wear no adequate protection,
Everything comes crashing in.


12. "Like a River" - Kasey Chambers
Rain falls, won't wash this away.
I'll build a stone wall to make you stay.


13. "Water to Sky" - Thea Gilmore
She lived in the spaces where the lightning fries.
Take her to the frozen earth, God.
Yeah, she lived in the spaces with the dark in her eyes.
Take her from the water to sky.


14. "Tangled and Wild" - Oh Susanna
Well, I have lived in this city
Nearly all of my life,
But in my heart there's a country
That's tangled and wild.


15. "Mouth" - Merril Bainbridge
Now, will it be my fault if I
Take your love and throw it wide?
You might restrain me,
But could you really blame me?


16. "I Won't Be Your Yoko Ono" - Dar Williams
Some will give their love for fashion.
Others trade their gold for passion.
I don't have the goods to start with,
Never had the reins to part with.
Still, I hope you take me seriously.


17. "Be Like Water" - Sarah Fimm
If everything is just the way it should be,
Why am I, why am I still hungry?


18. "Holding Out for a Hero" - Frou Frou
Racing on the thunder,
Rising with the heat,
It's gonna take a superman
To sweep me off my feet.


19. "Coin-Operated Boy" - Dresden Dolls
this bridge was written
To make you feel smittener
With my sad picture
Of girl getting bitterer.


20. "Suddenly I See" - KT Tunstall
And everything around her is a silver pool of light,
And the people who surround her feel the benefit of it.
It makes you calm.
She holds you captivated in her palm.


21. "Pussy Manifesto" - Bitch & Animal
Manifest this (motha fucka) #1:
Every living thing comes from and returns to...
(Get it?)

It lives!

Finally done. This is a mix CD that is [livejournal.com profile] kashmir_ki_kali's Friendship Stimulus gift. Will be uploading the actual tracks and a .zip of the complete mix over the next few hours: It's all up; have at it!

Stop the Progress, I Want to Get Off
complete mix

1. "The Last Trip Home" - Battlefield Band
But progress runs its driven course
And tractors [have] replaced the horse


2. "Silver Darlin's" – Battlefield Band
But the lads that used [to] work them
They've gone for better pay


3. "Men o' Worth" – Ed Miller
But when the work is o’re, and my boat rots on the shore
How will I feed my family when the companies move away?


4. "Smith & Taylor" – Chumbawamba
Every maiden voyage leaves a widow on the shore
And every blessed spire sees the earth get its reward


5. "City of New Orleans" – Tom Rush
The conductor sings his song again:
"Passengers will please refrain
This train's got the disappearing railroad blues."


6. "I Ain't Got No Home" – Bruce Springsteen
Now I worry all the time like I never did before
'Cause I ain’t got no home in this world anymore


7. "The MTA" – Kingston Trio
When he got there the conductor told him
"One more nickel."
Charlie couldn’t get off that train


8. "Cities" – Talking Heads
What do I smell? I smell home cooking
It's only the river, it's only the river


9. "What Have They Done to the Rain?" – Joan Baez
And the grass is gone, the boy disappears
And rain keeps falling like helpless tears
And what have they done to the rain?


10. "Where Do the Children Play?" – Cat Stevens
Well you've cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
Will you keep on building higher
'Til there's no more room up there?


11. "Mercedes Benz" – Janis Joplin
Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends


12. "57 Channels (And Nothin' On)" – Bruce Springsteen
We switched 'round and 'round 'til half-past dawn
There was fifty-seven channels and nothin' on


13. "Big Yellow Taxi" – Joni Mitchell
They took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum
And then they charged all the people a dollar and a half to see 'em


14. "Pleasant Valley Sunday" – The Monkees
Rows of houses that are all the same
And no one seems to care


15. "The Great Unknown" – Dar Williams
And we looked out to see your enemies
And we see that you're looking all at us instead


16. "Won't Get Fooled Again" – Pete Townsend
I know that the hypnotized never lie
Do you?


17. "The Universal Soldier" – Buffy Sainte-Marie
And, brothers, can't you see?
This is not the way we put an end to war.


18. "Space Oddity" – David Bowie
Here am I floating 'round my tin can, far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do


19. "Marathon" – Cast, Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris
So we keep on dancing, dancing
We can't rest

20. "A Place Called England" – June Tabor
Someone's sown a patch of sunflowers, though the soil is sooty black
Marigolds and a few tomatoes, right beside the railway track


some notes )

Enjoy!

So, Dad introduced me to Pandora, and I'm in love. (And isn't it sad that it's my father who's introducing me to new tech?) I mean, the channels I've set up so far are very repetitive within the channel, but I think I know what to do to broaden them some. We'll see.

Also, I just realized that weekend I'd been intending to spend doing the [livejournal.com profile] jd_ficathon match-ups is the same weekend I'll be helping move my bro into his dorm. *facepalm* Move-in is on Saturday, but we may not drive home until Sunday morning. I edited the existing info to say that the assignments will be going out either 31 Aug or 1 Sept, which means that, if I don't have time to do the match-ups over the weekend, I'll have Monday night and Tuesday to finish. And if I'm working those days? Heh, I'm fucked. :(

About how many songs do you think a mix CD should have on it?
melayneseahawk: (solitaire)
I don't even know how I got to this. I'm not awake enough to play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon YouTube.
I wouldn't call it the Evolution of Dance, personally, since it's not exactly in order. It's rather funny how gay some of these dance trends were. And I love how he flat-out refuses to do the Macarena (at around the 5 minute mark).

(And then there was a spoof on it which was the first 45 seconds of music, with a guy just standing there drinking a beer and pretending to nod at people. I'll admit it, I laughed out loud.)

The remix is currently with the beta, and I'm hoping to have it posted up before I go to work today. Long, nasty shift (1:45p until closing, which means 10p usually), so you're all invited to visit me. *hint hint* I tend to ply my guests with coffee...

Also, insta!rec: In Civilized Parts by [livejournal.com profile] penknife, written for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest. It wasn't that Jack grew up without any rules, but he's not sure he likes these. In his early teens, Jack Sparrow is sent to live with his aunt and uncle so he can get a 'prenticeship in an honest career. The story perfectly captures Jack's voice and his inability to fit into the social mores of living on land. Not incredibly long, non-graphic R, definitely worth the read.

And now to catch up on my poetry:

Some songs have the kinds of lyrics you ignore, or can't hear anyway, but some deserve to be written down in poetry books.

And your bones have been my bedframe. )

Frankenmix explanation here. Files up in SendSpace tomorrow morning now (I got impatient).

Frankenmix 20.0 [Dec 07]
Winter Break Mix

1. A cynical song: “Experiment” – Kevin Klein (De-Lovely)
Be curious,
Though interfering friends may frown.
Get furious
At each attempt to hold you down.


2. A song that starts with the letter "K": “Keep on Lovin’ You” – Lisa Loeb
And I'm gonna keep on lovin' you.
'Cause it's the only thing I wanna do.
I don't wanna sleep.
I just wanna keep on lovin' you.


3. The unofficial theme song of your family: “Monkees Theme” – The Monkees
Hey, hey, we're the Monkees
And people say we monkey around
But we're too busy singin'
To put anybody down


4. A song that uses bells: “Bells: Tolling of the Knell” – Kronos Quartet

5. A song for a long and boring drive: “Bohemian Rhapsody” – Queen
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouche
Scaramouche
Will you do the fandango?

[I have been known to sing along with this song at full volume when tired of the people I'm with.]


6. A song that includes the word "fire": “Fire in the Sky” – The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
There's a fire in the sky
It's like the light in your eyes


7. A cold song: “Funeral Tango” – Jack Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris
They've laid my poor soul bare,
And all they do is laugh.

8. A song that you only listen to in December: “The Atheist Christmas Carol” – Vienna Teng
It's the season of grace
Coming out of the void,
Where a man is saved
By a voice in the distance.


9. A song that's thisclose to driving you nuts: “The Boy With the Violin” – Buskin and Batteau
But the window was wide open.
There were footprints in the dew.
And in her heart, she was hopin',
But deep inside, she knew.

[Rapists and bad prose: the song I love to hate.]


10. A song that makes you smile, despite yourself: “Marvin” – Stephen Moore
Outer alloy,
Inner void:
Marvin.


11. A song for working retail: “Say Something Funny” – A Class Act
Make mine a double special, please, on rye.
Say something funny,
Right on the money.
Say something funny.
Try.

12. A song for your loved ones: “What I Did for Love” – A Chorus Line
Gone.
Love is never gone.
As we travel on,
Love's what we'll remember.

13. A song for hiding out from your loved ones: “Looking for Space” – John Denver
And I'm looking for space
And to find out who I am
And I'm looking to know and understand


14. A song for the end of a too-short vacation: “Spring Street” – Dar Williams
Yeah, let's watch the tour bus stop and tell us:
"Here's the scene of a spring green life dream.
Take the best part,
Write it in your caffeine diary."

Frankenmix 19.0 [Nov 07]
Skinny Dippin' and Lone Star Sippin' and Steel Guitar Mix

1. A song about zombies: “Zombie Nation” – Kernkraft 400

[Cheap shot, I know.]

2. A song about robots: “Marvin” – Stephen Moore
I'm just a robot and I know my place:
A metal servant to the human race.
I work my can off trying to satisfy.
I know they'll disconnect me by and by.


3. A song about pirates: “Black Freighter” – Steeleye Span
And the ship, the Black Freighter,
With the skull at the masthead,
Sails into the bay.


4. A song about ninjas: “Battle Without Honor or Humanity” – Tomoyasu Hotei

[It...made sense at the time.]

5. A song about cheese: “Shazam!” – Beastie Boys
I'd like a lettuce, tomato and Munster on rye.
All this cheese is gonna make me cry.
Gorgonzola, Provolone.
Don't even get me started on this microphone


6. A song about Canadians: “Song for the Mira” – The Garrison Brothers
Out on the Mira, the people are kind.
They'll treat you to home-brew and help you unwind.
And if you come broken they'll see that you mend.
I wish I was with them again.

[For those of you who don't know, the Mira is a river in Nova Scotia.]


7. A song about cowboys: “Cosmic Cowboy” – The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
Don't bury me on the lone prairie.
I'd rather play there alive.


8. A song about eyeliner: “Big Time” – Linda Eder
First we'll improve a bit on Mother Nature.
I got a doctor friend you'll see.
Imagination plus augmentation:
Voila, a brand new me!

[No, no eyeliner mentioned, but it fits, somehow.]

Yeah, so C and her friend getting back at around 10 totally killed two work hours. But the astronomy homework is done. So post this, then shower, then outline for the history exam make-up tomorrow, and I'm good to go. Or something.

Again, more abstract than I usually do. And a lot more instrumental, too.

Frankenmix 18.5 [Oct 07]
Early Morning Mix

1. A song of fire: “Fire in the Sky” – Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
There's a fire in the sky.
It's like the light in your eyes.


2. A song for never rhyming with anything: “The Pointless, Yet Poignant, Crisis of a Co-Ed” – Dar Williams
I'm not a leader.
I'm not a left-wing rhetoric
Mobilizing force of one.
But there was a time way back,
Many years ago, in college (don't laugh).


3. A song for sunshine: “Sunshine on My Shoulders” – John Denver
If I had a wish that I could wish for you,
I'd make a wish for sunshine all the while.


4. A song for atavistic urges: “Puer Natus Est Nobis” – the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos

5. A song for finding the horizon: “America” – Simon & Garfunkel
Counting the cars
On the New Jersey Turnpike,
They've all gone
To look for America.


6. A song for three o'clock in the morning: “Mercedes Benz” – Janis Joplin
Oh Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?
My friends all drive Porsches, I must make amends.
Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from my friends,
So Lord, won’t you buy me a Mercedes Benz?

[This is the kind of song my brain sings at 3a when I get a little loopy.]


7. A song for (pretending to be) royalty: “Pomp and Circumstance” - Edward Elgar

8. A song for the end of the rainbow: “Pastures New” – Nickel Creek

Frankenmix 17.0 [Sep 07]
Indian Summer Mix

1. A piratey song: “Black Freighter” – Steeleye Span
And the ship, the Black Freighter,
With fifty long cannons,
Opens fire on the town.

[Amusingly, this is a Brecht song, and it's Brecht who is currently making my life hell in both play analysis and design.]


2. A song for an unexpectedly rainy morning: “Rain on the Roof” – Lovin’ Spoonful
You and me were gabbin' away,
Dreamy conversation, sittin' in the hay.
Honey, how long was I laughing in the rain with you?
'Cause I didn't feel a drop 'til the thunder brought us to.


3. A song that would fit in on Sesame Street: “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” – Simon & Garfunkel
Hello lamppost,
Whatcha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-duh doo-doo,
Feelin' groovy.


4. A peppermint sort of song: “That’s When I Love You” – Aslyn
And when you're mad 'cause you lost the game,
Forget I'm waiting in the rain,
Baby, I love you,
I love you, anyway.

[Sharp but sweet? Maybe? No? Oh, well.]


5. A song for mowing the lawn: “Tangled and Wild” – Oh, Susanna
I have lived in this city
Nearly all of my life.
But in my heart there's a country
That is tangled and wild.

[It made sense at the time...Maybe it's just because I don't like yardwork.]


6. A song that has the letter V in the title: “Like a River” – Kasey Chambers
I think the sun is finally rising.
It's burning down because I miss you.
I'm gonna walk right through the fire,
Cos all I wanna do is kiss you.


7. A song about he done me wrong: “The Man That Got Away” – Linda Eder
The man that won you
Has run off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen a final inning.


8. A song for when the network is down: “Don’t Ask Me Why” – Linda Eder
I get all wet
Each time I surf the net.
Yet, Baby, don't ask me why.


9. A song about anatomy: “Red Right Ankle” – The Decemberists
This is the story of your red right ankle,
And how it came to meet your leg,
And how the muscle, bone, and sinews tangled,
And how the skin was softly shed.


10. A song that mentions butterflies: “Ode to a Butterfly” – Nickel Creek

11. A song to vogue to that isn't actually “Vogue”: “Hot Hot Hot” – Buster Poindexter
How you feeling? (Hot hot hot)
How you feeling? (Hot hot hot)


12. A song for a car chase: “On the Road Again” – Tom Rush
On the road again (on the road again).
And can't stop more than just a few minutes,
Babe, to make love to you.


13. A song that calls for w00t: “When I Was a Boy” – Dar Williams
See that picture?
That was me:
Grass-stained shirt
And dusty knees.


14. A song for saving the world: “Rhymes and Reasons” – John Denver
And you wonder where were going.
Where's the rhyme and where's the reason.
And its you who cannot accept,
It is here we must begin.

Will be interspersing Frankenmix posts with homework tonight; expect and honest-to-God RL post sometime around 1a.

I was a little more...abstract with this one.

Frankenmix explanation here. Files up in SendSpace soon now.

Frankenmix 17.0 [Sep 07]
Indian Summer Mix

1. A piratey song: “Black Freighter” – Steeleye Span
And the ship, the Black Freighter,
With fifty long cannons,
Opens fire on the town.

[Amusingly, this is a Brecht song, and it's Brecht who is currently making my life hell in both play analysis and design.]


2. A song for an unexpectedly rainy morning: “Rain on the Roof” – Lovin’ Spoonful
You and me were gabbin' away,
Dreamy conversation, sittin' in the hay.
Honey, how long was I laughing in the rain with you?
'Cause I didn't feel a drop 'til the thunder brought us to.


3. A song that would fit in on Sesame Street: “The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Groovy)” – Simon & Garfunkel
Hello lamppost,
Whatcha knowing?
I've come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain'tcha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-duh doo-doo,
Feelin' groovy.


4. A peppermint sort of song: “That’s When I Love You” – Aslyn
And when you're mad 'cause you lost the game,
Forget I'm waiting in the rain,
Baby, I love you,
I love you, anyway.

[Sharp but sweet? Maybe? No? Oh, well.]


5. A song for mowing the lawn: “Tangled and Wild” – Oh, Susanna
I have lived in this city
Nearly all of my life.
But in my heart there's a country
That is tangled and wild.

[It made sense at the time...Maybe it's just because I don't like yardwork.]


6. A song that has the letter V in the title: “Like a River” – Kasey Chambers
I think the sun is finally rising.
It's burning down because I miss you.
I'm gonna walk right through the fire,
Cos all I wanna do is kiss you.


7. A song about he done me wrong: “The Man That Got Away” – Linda Eder
The man that won you
Has run off and undone you.
That great beginning
Has seen a final inning.


8. A song for when the network is down: “Don’t Ask Me Why” – Linda Eder
I get all wet
Each time I surf the net.
Yet, Baby, don't ask me why.

This is the story of your red right ankle,
And how it came to meet your leg,
And how the muscle, bone, and sinews tangled,
And how the skin was softly shed.

11. A song to vogue to that isn't actually “Vogue”: “Hot Hot Hot” – Buster Poindexter
How you feeling? (Hot hot hot)
How you feeling? (Hot hot hot)

On the road again (on the road again).
And can't stop more than just a few minutes,
Babe, to make love to you.
