Title: in revolution
Warnings: Some swearing, songs about violence.
Notes: You could hypothetically call it a mix for The Anatomy of Revolution. This mix begins with a track that could easily have ended the mix. It goes through stages of revolution, from discontentment and hope up to revolution and sacrifice, down to republic and purification, and on towards discontentment and hope once more.
Technical: Each song is uploaded individually to Boxnet. There is also a .zip file of the entire thing uploaded to sendspace. If anything is deleted or doesn't link properly, please tell me so I can fix it immediately. All songs are mp3s. Links to files are the symbols (⚔) between song name and title.

Title: sordid hearts are hard to hide
Warnings: Swearing, sordidness, and spoilers.
Notes: "His sins were catching up with him." This mix is darker than it might have been, but it also has more hope. I wanted to catch the general atmosphere of the stories, full of hedonism and sorrow, but with the hope of redemption and the suggestion that not all is doomed and damned.
Technical: Each song is uploaded individually to Boxnet. There is also a .zip file of the entire thing uploaded to mediafire.

Subject: life in a world of eldritch abominations
Title: Leave the Horror
Warnings: Songs about horror and pulling out people's spines.
Notes: This is mainly inspired by "A Study in Emerald" and the idea of day-to-day life in a world where horrible monsters slowly drive everyone mad as a matter of course. It is specifically focused on the idea of a Lovecraftian version of Victorian London and the relationships of those who might inhabit it, trying to protect each other from and falling prey to the horrors down every street and in every mind.

Title: Fervency
Notes: I have made a Christmas mix for you! It is very unChristmassy, as it is mostly composed of songs you might like and songs that have in the past made me think of the Master (the two are not mutually exclusive). The final track is the Giveback Track: it's a song you gave to me that helped me, so now I'm giving it back to you. Then, perhaps, when you need help, it will have added meaning to it. Merry Christmas, Vessa.

The last song, the 'Giveback Track' is a song you've given me that I want to give back, because it gains meaning when it moves between people.

Notes: These are your Christmas songs. My selection of songs were centred around the idea of love that I think you are the master-mistress of, to coin a phrase. I hope you like them. The 'Giveback Track' is a song that has passed back and forth between us, a song that means more than the sound and words by now.

Notes: This is a collection of songs for you! I tried to choose songs that suit your musical tastes, from what I know of them, songs that might help lift you up and carry you through. The 'Giveback Track' is to thank you for a song that you gave me which has meant much for me for that reason. I'm returning it to you in the hopes that it can also mean something to you.

The 'Giveback Track' is sort of the arcing of the thank you; it's a thank you for a song that you gave me and that made me happy, and a returning of that song, because meaning accumulates as things are passed from hand to hand.

Warnings: It follows Braxiatel's development from the New Adventures to some time after The Wake.

For the darling [livejournal.com profile] taelow's birthday, I have constructed a fanmix for her, drawn mainly but not entirely from 70's-era music. Let's call it "70's-era-ish." That works, right? This fanmix is for the buddy-cop partnership that is made of the sheriff, DCI Gene Hunt and his deputy, DI Sam Tyler. They fight and fight and occasionally go out drinking and get along, though often, they go out drinking and fight. They're best mates, mentors to one another, Guv and Boss of A Division's CID. Their relationship has been tried and tested again and again, but they always pull through. So for you, [livejournal.com profile] taelow, I present:
