This song is the basis for the theme of my LiveJournal--not my Dreamwidth, because I just haven't bothered, re: DW, and honestly, the song stopped sounding true to me while I was in the bitter downward spiral I've been in for the last three years.

I am so, so, so much better now. And it feels true again. I'm so relieved.

We have all the time in the world to get it right
And we have all the love in the world to set alight

(Also one of Doug's favorites, for those playing along at home with Doug and Jer. Doug's crush on Glen Hansard is *crazy* intense, lol. God love that boy.)

First full day of a new year, and it feels fine indeed (even sick as I am, ugh.)

So today I was having some trouble getting into the right headspace. And Doug said to me, ”Play some Frames!” and I said, ”Doug, I would love to, but I can’t access the machine with all my Frames on it.”

Well, I’ve bought a lot of Frames CDs in my time, and some of them are wickedly expensive, being imports. So he said, ”Just get more!” and I did, I torrented and I have been listening to Glen’s amazing voice all day. And then I made Doug a wee playlist for himself, but then we realized that, really, the stuff by the other artists was breaking up the flow of the mix.

Rather than zip and upload this one, since nobody tends to actually DL fanmixes and it ends up being annoying to me while I watch counters and things (cause I am just like that), I thought I would bring you another rousing rendition of the Youtube Mix Tape phenomenon. ;)

Meet Glen Hansard, mine and Doug’s most favoritest ever in the world. 5 youtubes under the cut. (Finally, Rise, Rent Day Blues and Pavement Tune and Red Chord under the cut.)

So there you have it. Couldn’t find my favorite versions for all of them, but hopefully the essence of the amazingness that is The Frames comes through. :)

Ew. So, I have been obsessed with Iron and Wine, right? Like for the last several months.

You know how you get into an artist and you just magically gravitate toward certain songs and can ignore the others because you just get favorites?

Well, that happens to me, anyway. But today I put on one of the ones that I kinda liked the general premise of, or thought I did, and I really took a listen to the lyrics.

You guys, it was seriously, SERIOUSLY rapey. Like, how did I miss this? SO RAPEY. So then Meg and I were discussing his lyrics, and how generally they are really good lyrics and they make me think that other artists are just a joke because this guy can really write (and I really think he can). And she started pointing out MORE RAPEYNESS and other stuff.

So whatever, now I have to stop listening to him because all I can think is RAPEY.


I am going to miss Sam Beam, but he has to go. Like, stat.

How does this shit sneak past our radar? What the fuck is wrong with people?

Whatever, I will always have my girl folk artists, and Glen and Mark. Fuck you, Sam Beam, you will never be rapey in my general direction again. But I am going to miss you.

(FYI, the offending song is here: http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858555096/ Trigger warning like woah, obviously.)

Because making a mix tape is more fun easier than writing Doug and Jer, and also because my roommate just desperately needs new music before I DIE.

RP tonight put this song in my head. Traditionally, this has been a Sam song, for reasons which will be readily apparent, but... I think tonight it could have applied to almost anyone present.

Or maybe just my Sam and Dean.

Embedding doesn’t seem to want to work, so I put the youtube link at the bottom...
