Taking after Carly’s own tradition of following up albums with a “side B” that includes a bunch of cuts that didn’t make the original album, we’ve done the same with our original playlist, while also taking the chance to update this with some of Carly’s works that have been released since the original came out.
Otherwise, like we said the last time, it’s impossible to explain this any more.
A soundtrack to uneventful teenage days. Not the angsty side of youth, but the biding your time of youth. Music your cooler friends listen to that lodge in your head for processing, vibes from video games that incongruously feel like hanging out at the mall, something something identity. A cross between getting a ride from a friend so you don’t have to take the school bus and a Makoto Shinkai movie. Sort of works either as a playlist for work music or for waiting for everyone to arrive for book club.
Recently, Matthew asked if I was ready to do a new Trash Garbage playlist, which was a nice question of him to ask. The back half of 2021 is apparently full of ~*life changes*~ for me, and because of that I’ve been the less active half of the blog lately.
I haven’t been listening to much music lately. When Matthew asked what I’ve been listening to, I answered honestly, which was that I was mostly watching weird direct-to-video or made-for-TV documentaries about severe weather, as just some kind of background noise. I mentioned I had a playlist of these and half-jokingly suggested I run that as the next playlist, to which Matthew responded enthusiastically.
So here’s 11 documentaries from the 1970s to the early 2000s, all of which detailing some aspect of severe weather, mostly tornadoes (blame my midwestern upbringing). I have no idea if this will actually resonate with anyone, but hopefully it does, because – and I know we throw this term around loosely here – “non-spotify playlist” and “non-music playlist” are both very trash garbage. Consider this first one to be a preview/mission statement/threat of future experiments to come.
finally, a trash garbage playlist with Tegan and Sara, Fucked Up, and ska in it and we insist it actually works.
now, sure, it’s a little different here in the year of our lord 2020, but summer is the worst season. this is a playlist of songs for joyously fuming about how it’s too fucking hot right now. this is a bunch of mostly party-pleasing mostly pop and rock that wouldn’t be out of place at a rooftop or backyard gathering that it’s too hot for and no one is paying particularly close attention to how you kind of fucked up the music. it’s kind of mellow, but it’s pretty fun about it. (aliens-mostly.gif) it’s about two hours, which is probably how long it’ll take for someone else to insist they take over the music.
