“33 Pages” – A Digital Mixtape

Since I haven’t written about music much lately, I decided that the best thing to do is piece together a mixtape! However, that’s not very exciting in the age of the blogosphere—I could just throw a bunch of songs into a folder, provide a suggested order, and call it a day—so I took another route.

In homage to an art that probably officially died away before I was born, I recorded the songs into two different “sides” (I know I know this is sheer insanity just work with me here) with hand-made crossfading and order selection by yours truly. Yeah, I know, a real labor of love. A bunch of new songs and a couple of old songs, some songs that have been on Wampoholic and others that have yet to grace this tumblr.

I guess reading Chuck Klosterman finally got to me! HAY~UCK

Fun Notesies

  • I saw Manchester Orchestra at the Paste Festival in 2006, never ever thinking they would get famous. Now they’re blowing up! So kyuuute!
  • I cut out the very end of “Up Up and Away,” but that brake effect is not me.
  • The original “Pick Up The Phone” is soooooo good even though I love the remix I posted a few months ago.

TV Tropes

I hate to do this to anyone who still hasn’t discovered TV Tropes and thus still, y’know, has a life.. But you owe it to yourself to spend hours indulging in this collection of all the cliches in every form of media. You’ll feel justified, you’ll feel shocked, and maybe you’ll even learn something.

Childish Gambino, “What the Fuck Are You? (Colouring of Pigeons)”

I know next to nothing about this guy, but he rapped over Colouring of Pigeons by The Knife and the rest of his releases are all him rapping over other alternative songs with a lot of buzz.

It also helps that, despite his voice being a little overpowering compared to the instrumental, his rhymes are very solid. It’s a compelling message about realism and standing up for what you care about, and it builds over the course of the song right up until the last moment. Check out his other work at his website.

i am not talking, i’m just a rapper.

It’s like soccer but painful. And more manly.

Damn my roommates for playing classical music right now. I’m doing my best to drown them out via Nicki Minaj.

No real post today. Byez.
