Blood Orange

[Download Mixtape] Tape Tuesday: Fear of Missing Out

New Tape Tuesday!

Fear of Missing Out is the reason I check my Twitter (and Facebook and email) every second of every day. It is the reason I did not want to stay an extra day in D.C. with extended family. The deep-rooted fear of missing out on something almost always involves friends or girls or dreams. For this mix I wanted to take songs that may seem simple or one-dimensional and uncover their second and third dimensions. I think behind each of these songs there is a vulnerability and fear, and that fear is what makes this tape heartbreaking and relatable. The common fear of missing out that lives within us also lives within this music. And it also doubles as a great mix for your imminent post-NYE depression.

Tape Tuesday: Fool’s Paradise

You and me’s just a fool’s paradise.

I used to watch a lot of movies. Early in high school my dad even joked that I had watched the most movies in the world for my age. For some reason or another in the past year, I just have not made time for one of my favorite mediums of entertainment. Over spring break I decided to change this. I just sat down, disconnected myself from online society, and engaged in the lost art of watching movies–but not just any movies. I wanted to watch films that would change my life: big movies with weighty concepts and twisted ideas. Movies that could warp my perception of things in a two hour runtime and make me re-evaluate how I would approach daily scenarios. I (re)visited the works of Charlie Kaufman, Woody Allen, and briefly, the Coen Brothers. Fool’s Paradise is an amalgamation of the inspiration garnered from watching Raising Arizona, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and Manhattan. Also, as I explained to my friends, the first third is a great “turn up” playlist, and the rest is the opposite of that.

  1. Cold War Kids – Miracle Mile (Houses Remix)
  2. BenZel – Fallin’ Love (Alex Young Remix)
  3. KYLE – Fruit Snacks
  4. Phoenix – Entertainment (Blood Orange Remix)

  18. Phosphorescent – Song for Zula
  19. The Colourist – Wishing Wells

Yeah then I saw love disfigure me / Into something I am not recognizing
