Pretty songs to get you through your winter crushes

So here it is: the second half of mixmas 2012. This is a much more easy-going set of songs. These songs, unlike part one, don't demand running shoes and gas pedals and hurtling velocity. They feel comfortable in a living room. Or on a brisk walk with a hat and gloves. Or with a glass […]

In Praise of Messy Lives: A soundtrack

God it feels weird getting up on this TGW stage again. It's been a real long time since I was up here. It was May 2012. It was to share something called Farrell and Trixie's Memorial Day mix. That was nine months ago. Just weeks before all the changes. All the conclusions. The untanglings. The […]

A Year in the Dollar Bin – 2012

You thought maybe I wasn’t going to do a 2012 music mix? I thought so, too, until the idea occurred to me to compile some favorite songs from my dollar-bin finds from the year. In my musical tastes of late I’ve been way too caught up in what records from yesteryear can be found on […]

A tape full of hiss and a sleeping bag on the floor

It has come to my attention that a number of my lovelies are going to be traveling for much of the summer. I will miss you all terribly and want to go with you wherever you go. And so, I’ve made a little summer mix, something by which to remember me while you enjoy your […]

Thursday playlist: Loose associations

Last time grandpa fawcett posted here, it was a bunch of gripes. This time it's a jumble of thoughts and enthusiasms, the ramblings of early dementia: 1.) This song “A Real Hero” by College (feat. Electric Youth) is from the movie Drive. I could not stop playing this song every day, ten times a day, […]
