mix: tripping on eggshells


tripping on eggshells. a mix that grew from a motley collection of songs that invoked that certain je ne sais quoi and a name that I was sure wouldn't fit, but here we are. the songs are sometimes light, sometimes a bit heavy, sometimes easy to understand and at other times not, but they are always beautiful. (in my opinion.)
01. yael naïm, paris
02. fleet foxes, innocent son
03. charlotte martin, redeemed
04. hanne hukkelberg, lucy
05. stars, the ghost of genova heights
06. andain, beautiful things
07. charlotte martin, chocolate
08. adele, hometown glory
09. andrew bird, plasticities
10. the postal service, suddenly everything has changed (the flaming lips cover)
11. sarah slean, eliot
12. radiohead, exit music (for a film)


I hope you enjoy, and if you want a specific song or two, just ask. :)

photo four: spring!

I'm notorious for procrastination, but I was pretty sad to realise I haven't posted photos here in a while! I was looking through my photos since the last time I posted, and I'm amassed a nice collection. Unfortunately, there were almost fifty photos, so I decided to split it into two posts, spring and summer. It worked quite nicely since there are about twenty-five photos in each. :) This, then, is the spring post!

mix: bare hands won't help you

(banner by me)

bare hands won't help you, but you'll see the sun soon enough. for those times when the world on your back feels too heavy, and a small sadistic part of you wishes the world was ending so your problems wouldn't seem so large.

When I go through insane amounts of stress, I listen to music. Thank God I'm so obsessed with music or finals would've had me underground. ;) Enjoy!

mix: elyssa's bday

Today's a very special day -- anythingbutgrey moves up a number! This is a mix for Elyssa, who is wonderful and amazing and oh so many other things. It initially started off at about thirty songs but I managed to trim it down, haha. Enjoy, dear!
