Delayed Dreams

I mentioned a while back that i was using a little custom playlist to help me get to sleep at night.

Here’s a few select tracks from said playlist…

MP3: Cotton Jones – Somehow Keep It Going

MP3: recoveryUnit – Naming The Causeway

MP3: Panda Bear – Ponytail

MP3: Zero 7 – In The Waiting Line

MP3: Sufjan Stevens – John Wayne Gacy Jr

MP3: Fleet Foxes – Tiger Mountain Peasant Song

I created these tracks under my Fragile X pseudonym about a year or so ago for a short film a friend was doing for her University course. I now also use them to help get me to sleep. It’s just me and my guitar. They’re merely a short 3 or 4 minutes of noodling with the amp down low. Helps me relax though and puts me on the road to slumberland.

MP3: Fragile X – Summer ’05

MP3: Fragile X – Tree Road

A few more random things.

You share your birthday with Will.I.Am, Terence Trent D’Arby and Eva Longoria. Julius Ceasar was murdered on this day as well apparently.

Oh and it’s a national holiday in Hungary. Just thought i’d throw that in for some international appeal. And you never know they might be secretly celebrating your birthday.

“Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you….”

I know you’ve probably seen this before but here it is anyway….

Happy Birthday Emma

Love Weighs More Than Gold

Christmas is a holiday that persecutes the lonely, the frayed and the rejected.

MP3: Sufjan Stevens – That Was The Worst Christmas Ever

MP3: Slow Club – Christmas TV

VIDEO: Malcolm Middleton – We’re All Going To Die

Redemption?

It’s Christmas so we’ll stop
It’s on with the lights to warm the dark
It can cloak elsewhere
As the rot stops for today
Let the rot stop just for one day
Only good red eyes, red suits, and faces will radiate
And the cold will hide its face
Now the cold is turned away
We can be best friends with the people we hate
‘Cause we’ve all got blood
And it’s warmer than you think
Yeah it is warm and it is thick
We all breathe out clouds
We’re built to give at least once each year
And that’s better than never I guess
And life might never get better than this
With the perfect excuse for our natures to change
And wear shiny clothes
Oh it’s Christmas so press pause and we’ll go

Oh it’s Christmas so we’ll stop
‘Cause the wine on our breath puts the love in our tongues
So forget the names i called you on Christmas Eve
In fact forget the entire year
Don’t reflect, just pretend and you won’t feel scared
You won’t feel a thing
‘Cause it’s all been tucked away

And once you’re tucked in bed
You’ll hold on to the day for the last few seconds
Your gray dull face is protected from the wind
And I’ll protect you I promise I will
And the rest of our lives will be just like Christmas
With fewer toys
You’re a good girl I’m a good boy
Or so I thought

Oh it’s Christmas so we stopped
Were it not for the tick of the clock
And the spinning of the Earth in space
We could always be this way
And as we sleep at the fall of the day
In the room next door the tree lights brighten the rodents eyes
And catches a glimpse of the dust beginning to rise

The next day life went back to its past self
