winter mixtape



i made a mixtape for the winter called "up at the farm & down in the graveyard" (like the last sentence of ethan frome because living in massachusetts in the winter makes me really commiserate with that guy). it is under my nom de mixtape, thurn taxis (like the family that founded the european postal service). these are the songs on it, which i do not own but which sound nice together:

10 tracks / 40 minutes

0:00 cloud nothings “morgan” from turning on, 2010
3:06 talking heads “found a job” from more songs about buildings and food, 1978
8:06 indian rebound “i’m not yours” from indian rebound EP, 2010
11:25 wombs “protein shake” from unitopians, 2010
13:41 oberhofer “petz / haus,” live on heritage radio, 2010
18:42 ava luna “clips” from services, 2010
22:55 menomena “cough coughing” from i am the fun blame monster, 2003
26:16 tennis “seafarer” from cape dory, 2011

my friend josh went down to williamsburg last week to pick up beirut tickets for some people (they were only available at the box office) and managed to snag me one. i only just found out he did on friday. the show's a week from tomorrow. i can't believe this is happening.

this summer's going to be rad. i will see you at a bunch of free shows, for sure. i can't wait for them to announce what's at the waterfront this year but i guess we'll find out soon!

READ STUFF THAT I WRITE

basically when i write a story that i feel is publishable i then continue to write stuff that won't make it into the actual work just for the sake of writing more about the characters. sometimes in doing this i figure out more about these people that i make up which i then work into the actual story, although i mostly just do it for my own amusement / out of boredom. anyway, i've decided to start putting some of this on the internet so that you guys can read it. i'll make sure to link to it when i add something new. and if you are on tumblr follow me!
