Saturday at Sunset: Bright Future

posted by: Arjun Daily Specials | Saturday at Sunset

I’m not going to sit here and pretend that every week of my life is life-changing. This past week wasn’t really at all. I went to school. I did my work. I came home. I wrote some for the site. I turned in a college application. No big deal. I did realize some stuff, I guess. I realized how little I want to die. It’s weird; when you’re a kid, you don’t want to die because your parents tell you that you have a bright future or some shit. Like, all babies in the world could die, and they wouldn’t care. They might cry, but it’s not because they’re sad that they’re dying; it’ll be because they pooped their pants or don’t like drowning. But for me right now, this is my bright future, or I’m nearing it, at least. I don’t want to die because what’s happening right now is awesome, and I can actually see that the future will most likely be awesome, too. I don’t want to die because I’m young and motivated and want to accomplish so much. I don’t want to die because I want to try, and if I fail, I want to try again.

Hopefully, that made sense and wasn’t too offensive. Hopefully, it doesn’t inspire any baby murders. If it does, you missed the point entirely. The only thing separating the songs below from the normal Saturday at Sunset mini-mix is a cover and a .zip file. Download all of them, add them to your iTunes, plank on a million. We had a power outage last night, which is why this is a day late.

Quit harassing me.

  1. Professor Penguin – Past
  2. Wake! Owl – Gold
  3. Bwani Junction – Two Bridges
  4. Antonio Paul – City Dreams (shout out to Cooper from our Facebook page)
  5. Samuraj Cities – Arabic Jewelry
  6. Coasts – Drum Song
  7. Unknown Mortal Orchestra – Boy Witch
  8. City Rain – Digeridoo
  9. Motopony – King of Diamonds
  10. [BONUS] Kanye West – Monster (TEACHERS Remix)

It makes me think that you want to go to come back, not to go.
