britt's midsummer mix

Well, Al and AWM have given it goes, adding some nice diversity to the lot. I don't know what charities they are supposedly representing or if they want to hoard the fortune to themselves. as for me, I'll decide if I win. Rebecca still has to go- Matthew, C-raw? feel free to do as well. and Adam!

...

here's a transit of my year in terms of famous female writers, do you follow?
- winter 2010: Sylvia Plath (basically want to die)
- spring 2010: Anne Sexton (still want to die, but more insane. I did not sleep with my daughter, though....)
- summer 2010: Anais Nin (darker periods, with more light, a return to former self. although my former self is basically dead so I am kind of a zombie version of Brittany, but a good zombie).

thus, my midsummer mixes have traditionally held a melancholy air of them, the same kind of air that reminds you autumn is just one premature frost or changing leaf away. that school supplies are all the rage at Target and Staples, etc.

BUT I NO LONGER FEEL THAT BAD. I welcome the fall. even though summer's weather has been lovely (if not oppressive this year) and I hope this well thought out mix (cough cough cough) expresses that mood:

-

"Scissor Runner"- Jenny and Johnny

this couple is in love; you can hear it in their voices, the playful back and forth. it's adorable. not excruciating or angering- just adorable. it's like rediscovering your first love, if that was a good thing.



"Wicked Blood"- Sea Wolf



"Memories"- David Guetta feat. Kid Cudi

"Easy"- Joanna Newsom

there is something about that album that makes me feel like a farmer's wife in 1898. and he's coming back for the night and it's around twilight- but he doesn't have a face and we don't have sex. it's a mood thing.




"Front Row"- Metric



"Short and Entertaining"- Jamaica



see previous post on this subject.

"Sweet"- Annie




"Swimming"- Florence + the Machine



"Dandelion"- Charlotte Gainsbourg




"French Navy"- Camera Obscura



"Sovay"- Andrew Bird


"Sleep All Summer"- St. Vincent + the National


I can't verbalize how much I love this song. I sing it in the shower (both parts). that's how much I love it. imagine that, please. it kind of sounds weird.

"Shiny and Warm"- Goldfrapp

snapping the nice mood created by that last one...

"40 Day Dream"- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes




"So Happy I Could Die"- Lady Gaga



"this is the Lady Gaga song I don't like! the lyrics are so bad!"- my mom

"Swisha"- Ratatat



"Airport Taxi Reception"- Sondre Lerche



"Autumn Sweater"- Yo La Tengo




"Radio #1"- Air



"Set Yourself On Fire"- Charlotte Gainsbourg




SHE DESERVES TWO MENTIONS SHE IS THAT GOOD.

"Past In Present"- Feist


"Let's Go Surfing"- The Drums



"Totem on the Timeline"- Klaxons



"The Party"- Justice f. Uffie



I know a lot of people hate this song but whatever, Uffie is such a pleasure for me. she's what I wish I could be- this callous stupid party bitch. so. I would like to party with her but I'm pretty sure I'd wake up with a Frenchman peeing on me, not that that hasn't already happened.

"A Pretty Girl Is Like..."- The Magnetic Fields



a toaster? a microwave? a handstand? many things.

"Too Young"- Phoenix

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
