Mix Tape Blues

Posted in Art, music with tags , on December 27, 2008 by darcyarts

I tried my hand at making a mix tape as I had promised to create one for some lovely young hipster relatives of mine.

They sent me a beautiful specimen to cheer me through Christmas and beyond.

I got through side one of my project and screwed up the last song which was too long.

I haven’t listened to the bungled side one, but somehow, in the very beginning the thing got away from me.

I’d selected about 10 tapes to blend a song or two from but started with a different first song than I had planned and it all went to hell from there.

I’m sure the thing sounds like the work of a drunken psycho killer and not in a good way. Am I rusty. It was kind of fun but I think half of me is in a dark place.

I started with Elvis Costello’s “I’m Not Angry” and followed that with John Doe’s “I’d Hate to F*@# up World-wide Brotherhood.”

Dude, I messed up.

I’ll try again when I’m done with my custom Dragons and Deluxe super giant squid special orders!

One Down and 99 More to Go

  I woke up insanely early. About 5:30 a.m. but stayed under the covers until about 6.

I decided it would be a good time to tackle some Blog and Flicker stuff. I had chosen to have a Flicker widget on my blog from the get go. For months it has been random peoples photographs instead of my own because a.) I love photos , anybody’s

and b.) I did not know how to get my stream in that lil’ widget.

It took a while but I figured it out and now the Flicker photo bar on my blog is me all me.

After a few days of drooling over  Stoopidgerl’s Flicker, a magnificent feast of hundreds of photos, I knew I had to push myself.

 This is a Stoopidgerl’s photo of a Nikki Sixx resin necklace she made. It rocks for days and days.

There will be no whimp in my soul when it comes to cultivating my own aesthetic.

I like to remind myself that Tibetan monks are praying for our liberation at this very moment.




Now here is something else that I was thrilled to encounter recently.
