CD Project - Last one for a while...

violethamster asked for a little help during mid-terms and upcoming finals. Apparently the girl isn't getting enough rest (I can identify) so I made her a lovely CD to help those sheep over the fence. I'm heading out in about 6 hours to drive to Utah with the whole fam damily for a Thanksgiving with the Griswolds, er... the relations up north and west. I have been asked by karabair to send a postcard fic from SLC, so I'll post it when she gets it. Hope I survive my kids!! Love you all!! (Oh, and violethamster? you rock for the kind words and recs. You don't know how much I appreciate it. fitbitcabear? I heart your fic, and the fact that you are posting it to my convenience is absurd and absolutely lovely. crazydiamondsue I heart you most of all!! I have the most awesome on line friends.)

1.I Am Trying To Break Your Heart, Wilco. This song SOUNDS like a dream.
2. A Pillow of Winds, Pink Floyd. This was the song I went to sleep to when I was in college. Good times...
3. A Kiss To Build A Dream On, Louis Armstrong. For happy sleepytime!
4. The City Sleeps, MC 900ft Jesus. Never heard of this guy? That's because this was the only good song he did. And it is goood. It'll give you weird, trippy dreams.
5. Sleep Like A Child, Joss Stone. Butt in the air, mouth open, drool on the pillow deep sleep.
6. Blue Velvet, Bobby Vinton. It was only a dream... DO NOT WATCH THE MOVIE BEFORE BEDTIME. Bad thoughts of "mommy, mommy!" in your head. Listen to this instead.
7. Mother's Pride, George Michael. Quiet and smokey. Good to unwind with a comfy pillow and a pitch-black bedroom.
8. Caide Sin Do'N, Clannad. Celtic lullabye. Perfect! Imagine your mom is Irish and she's singingyou to sleep. Or Liam's mom. Whatever. Nighty-nite!
9. Lullabye, Emitt Rhodes. Continuation of a theme. (From The Royal Tennenbaum's soundtrack.)
10. Sister Moon, Sting. Another jazzy, smokey, quiet tune to get those sheep a'hopping.
11. Release, Pearl Jam. Many nights in my dorm did I set this track on repeat and fall asleep. More good times...
12. Pinch Me, Barenaked Ladies. Sleeping yet? Dreaming yet?
13. Space Oddity, David Bowie. Having weird dreams? Maybe this'll help.
14. Last Broadcast, Doves. Another song that sounds like a dream. BUY THIS ALBUM. Thank me later. Such a lovely dreamy tune.
15. Good Night, The Beatles. Same here. *muwah!*

When I get back I need marlo, fer1213,and spikefan to email me their snail addys so I can dash off their discs. dovil, I got yours already and it should go out the Tuesday after I get back. Wish me no broken bones and lots of fluffy snow!

No wonder you're always tired!
It takes me for-freakin-ever to compile a CD mix.

I miss you, too!! I was looking for you all friday because I knew you would get the Mike D ref. Waah! I'm in Utah hiding my porn from the Mormons, and will be back Saturday.

Heart you! Miss my lj friends! Happy turkey day to you, too.

Re: hello!!
Hello back!!
Yes, I got the Mike D. Shoo-ga Wahta reference...one day too late. :(
I think you were already on your pilgrimage. Waaaah!
Looky, I'm dedicating my "Where's Mike D?" icon to you!

I've been busy with report cards, scary real-life stuff, and I was gifted a paid account! Look! I've gone from ghetto to ghetto fabulous!

Hurry back! I love you and your filthy porn loving ways!

Like the songs!

Have a good time this weekend. Eat lots of turkey and pie! Interject random bad!fic refs into any and all conversations, thoroughly confusing people not in the know *g*

i just said "crap in a bag" and they all looked at me crazy. then mr. stoney walks by and says he just egressed and all is right with the world.

talk with you soon!
Nov. 25th, 2004 10:37 am (UTC)
hee!...keep those refs coming...the two of you can have you own little world of egressing and she juice and confuse the crap out of everyone else (which will then, hopefully, end up in a bag...)

I listened to "Good Night" when I was in college right before I went to sleep for months.....

::sighs happily::
Nov. 19th, 2004 11:02 pm (UTC)
Squeeeeee! I can't wait to listen to this!

I have actually heard of MC 900ft Jesus. I liked the song "The Killer Inside Me". I haven't heard "The City Sleeps", though.

I'm pretty sure I've never heard "A Pillow of Winds". Which surprises me, because my stepdad has a record collection to rival Giles'.

"Blue Velvet". I am such a huge David Lynch fan, my mind just automatically goes disturbing places. But I don't mind having a few creepy dreams. Makes things interesting.

My musical taste is mainly of the 90s, and I love Pearl Jam. Also love the quirky humor of "Pinch Me", have always been a Bowie and Sting fan, and "Good Night" was one of my favorite songs when I was a kid.

Haven't heard the others, and I'm greatly looking forward to hearing the whole thing.

Hope you have a wonderful trip, and that the kids don't crap in anything inappropriate.
Nov. 23rd, 2004 09:06 am (UTC)
i have instructed the children to crap in the porcelain thingies, so hopefully that will stick.

i'm glad you like the mix! i burned a copy for our trip and we had "quiet" time. nice.

talk with you soon!
*hugs my friends*

Got the CD and listened and *loved*. I'd never heard Wilco or the Doves before, and I thought they were amazing.

Thank you so much for this.

no broken bones yet!
Nov. 20th, 2004 05:10 pm (UTC)

That is all.

Except: Bowie, Space Oddity, that gets two thumbs up and a couple of toes to boot.
Nov. 23rd, 2004 09:09 am (UTC)
*tickles your toes*

I am so excited about the Spangel CD. I have been workingo n that in my head for two weeks, and cannot WAIT for it to get to you!!

I'll be shushing down the slopes today and tomorro, then turkey, then heading home, then burning CDs!!!

*puts fingers in ears while you squee*
Nov. 20th, 2004 07:45 pm (UTC)
sheeat. I thought I already emailed you my address... maybe I emailed it so somebody else!!
Nov. 20th, 2004 07:49 pm (UTC)
yes... I did. To your Gmail. :D on Nov. 8th. Do you not often check your gmail?
Nov. 23rd, 2004 09:11 am (UTC)
derp. I didn't change my email addy for LJ to the gmail account, so I just assumed. Know what happens when you assume? I turn into an idiot, that's what.

your cd is almost done in my head, so it should go out immediately once i get home...

have a great week!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
