So, this was incredibly difficult and also fun! I started it in October, after I saw the film for the first time...

According to last.fm, I listened to each of these songs 60-80 times in the process of putting the mix together. So, uh, this has taken some time? Also there are 35 tracks, because making decisions is hard! So this is more of a fanboxset, really, but I didn’t think anyone would mind... there's a download link for each song, and a .zip file of all the songs at the end of the post. If you need me to break that .zip down into smaller chunks, I think I'm able to do that, so let me know!

There are probably too many Cooper Temple Clause songs on here (three), but it’s not my fault that they wrote such an applicable album! And the title is from a Mountain Goats song, but not the one I used in the actual mix. Okay? Okay. Enjoy!

I just got spoiled for Doctor Who. BOO. I should've watched it already, though, so I guess I had it coming.

Anyway! Lyrics meme!

Also, I said nothing on here about the fact that April 24th marks the anniversary of the Coopers splitting up. I don't know if there's really anything left to say about that, but yeah. Silly boys.

Happy Christmas, Merlin fans. Here's an over-ambitious fanmix!

This is, in theory, a mix celebrating Merlin and Arthur's ~platonic love~ through the years, beginning with Merlin's arrival in the city, and ending- sort of vaguely- with the glory years of Camelot. And then it has bonus tracks!

Our Smallest Adventures )

Book meme- Opening lines )

Also, I am starting to think The Boys Are Back In Town might actually really be my proper favourite song.

In other news I went shopping. I bought a dress (£7, reduced from £30! But two sizes too small, haha. I might post a picture tomorrow), and cheap records (Belle and Sebastian's BBC Sessions, Super Furry Animals and Brendan Benson, plus some anonymous bargain vinyl). I didn't buy a beautiful, glorious, heavenly lumberjack shirt, because it was too expensive and looked like pyjamas. However, if I am still using those adjectives for it by the end of the week, I may weaken. I do have some birthday money, after all.

Conor McKnickerless,

WarChild asked you if you might make a few donations to their fundraiser, and THIS is what you gave them? Seriously? I do concede that it was good of you to give anything at all, blah blah, and yes I am obviously a bit tempted by that Coopers gold disc. But SERIOUSLY? There are maybe two, three things there that will make any money. You just palmed off a bunch of freebies you don't want, didn't you? Like those people who give old underwear to charity shops. You suck.

The idea of giving WarChild £20 and getting a Coopers gold disc for my trouble is very appealing, but the thing has your cocking name on it, so I'll pass.

:)

I've always been disproportionately fond of John Martyn. So now I'm disproportionately upset to hear of his death.

RIP, good man.
