The Buildup…

August 5, 2010

For the next couple weeks, I’ll be posting playlists based on artists who are playing Bumbershoot (Seattle’s annual music-fest). Artists will include – Bob Dylan, Rise Against, The Decemberists, Motion City Soundtrack, Weezer, Neko Case, Fresh Espresso, Crash Kings, Jay Electronica, Delorean, Hole, LMFAO, J. Cole, Drake, and The Thermals. Killer lineup this year!

Today’s playlist is based off a song by HEALTH, who recently released an album, ::DISCO2.

Grooveshark is being very uncooperative and slow today- I’ll post a link later.

Here’s Today’s Playlist –

  1. Eight by Chew Lips
  2. Round and Round by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti
  3. Die Slow (Tobacco Remix) by HEALTH
  4. Stay Close by Delorean
  5. This Momentary by Delphic
  6. Fall Silent by Groove Armada
  7. Standing on the Shore by Empire of the Sun
  8. Dominos by The Big Pink
  9. Sick Muse by Metric

Lowering the Bar

July 1, 2010

No, I have not forgotten about you, dear readers. I was on a two day trip to Idaho with no chance to post, but my deficiency in that arena consumed my thoughts every waking moment. Well, maybe not, but I did feel a tiny twinge of guilt. I will doubtless feel much more so on my upcoming trip to Hawaii – I’ll be gone from the 4th till the 11th.

My iTunes library has reached such a volume (34 days of music…well, of audio. Two days of that is most likely audiobooks) that I’ve been forced to pursue my old strategy and convert all music to 64 kbs mono (same quality as 128 kbs stereo, which is pretty standard, except there’s only one audio channel) to save space. I’ve already filled 500 gb and 120 gb external HDDs with…stuff, mostly movies, TV Shows, and video games. I’d almost ran out of space on my 320 internal HDD, but converting my music will save me about 25 gbs.

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Gimme That Punk by Audio Bullys
  2. Animal by Neon Trees
  3. The Other Side by Kele
  4. Dance Hall Drug by Boys Like Girls
  5. The Perfect Mistake by Cartel
  6. Kids In Love by Mayday Parade
  7. Lost in Stereo by All Time Low
  8. Tiffany Blews by Fall Out Boy
  9. All Around Me by Flyleaf
  10. Ghost Town by Shiny Toy Guns

The Eye of the Storm

June 9, 2010

For me, today was the last day of  “school”. I say “school”, because I still have 3 very intense days of finals, after one day of “Rest” (which in this case means studying until my head explodes). But all homework is gone, as are classes. Thank goodness.

You may recall, if you’re the sort of person who actually reads what I write (and now that I think about it, if you weren’t you mostly likely wouldn’t be reading this), that last night I was reading an article on Kotaku about some game design principles. I was..inspired by this article to, again, start making a flash game (I know, not the most ambitious platform, but hey, everyone has to start somewhere). It’s going to be a 1-D fighting game. I’ll post a beta in…oh, let’s say two weeks, and a final release in probably a month or so. Hopefully.

I started off making an Electronic playlist today, only to realize that the amount and variety of electronic songs I know well is not quite as great as I had anticipated. If today’s playlist flows a little sloppily, now you know why.

Today’s Playlist:

  1. Lights Out by Santogold
  2. Thieves in the Night by Hot Chip
  3. Fall Silent by Groove Armada
  4. Satellite Mind by Metric
  5. Lisztomania by Phoenix
  6. Tigerlily by La Roux
  7. Doubt by Delphic
  8. Cream Dream by Simian Mobile Disco
  9. Ambling Alp by Yeasayer
  10. IT IS ON! by United State of Electronica
