Remember how I said that I wanted to make a mix every week or so for the rest of the summer? Well I finally finished the one I was working on - see the spotify mix and the youtube link (if you don’t have spotify). Listen and let me know what you think. Then if you’re up for it suggest another mix idea or theme. Give me something and I’ll create a mix and as soon as it’s finished I’ll post it here.

[Here’s the youtube version in case you don’t have spotify. A few of the songs are different versions than the spotify ones because they were all youtube had.]

Lately, my postings have been sporadic at best so I’ve decided to start something new. For the rest of the summer I’ll be taking suggestions for themes etc and sharing a mix every week or two. The first one I’m currently finishing, so no suggestions there. But I look forward to your input. The idea is - message or submit an idea, theme, etc that you want a playlist/mix made of and I’ll turn it into just that. After I’ve made it I’ll post a spotify playlist as well as a youtube version (for those of you without spotify) right here.
I would rather not go back to the old house there’s too many bad memories there When you cycled by here began all my dreams the saddest thing I’ve ever seen and you never knew how much I really liked you because I never even told you oh, and I meant to Are you still there? or have you moved away? I would love to go back to the old house but I never will
“And I will say that we should take a day to break away
from all the pain our brain has made
the game is not played alone
And I will say that we should take a moment and hold it
and keep it frozen and know that life has a hopeful undertone”—Migraine / Twenty One Pilots (via a-prodigaldaughter)
Did it ever occur to you that the music you’re listening to now you’ll hear again in 30 years on some oldies station in the car with your kid and you’ll remember listening to your favorite band on your old computer in your old bedroom wondering how one band could change your life like this one has and then you’ll finally understand why your parents only listened to the oldies when you were a kid.
White Apple / Blind Pilot In shadow, in dark In cold wind, open up your heart ‘Cause time brushes your face And one loved them, every new shape One loved them for what could not get left behind Or washed away
Some were seasons, some just days I’m bringing nothing with me I mean to save This faint sweetness, this wick of light This white apple, full of bites
A white apple, full of what has slipped away from me Full of flesh, sweet as memory Full of hope, grown from a fallen tree Full of a life, I can’t just let myself believe
So if I haunt you, if I do If my shadow leans up on you too No good intentions or ways I talk I’ll just leave a light lit for you to walk I’ll leave a light lit for you to walk
