Beloved Groupthinkers, here is my grim-dark, kink-friendly, vamped-out mixtape WIP. To the tune of this music, I have done a lot of drugs, played a lot of LARP characters, had a lot of kinky sex, consorted with persons of dubious, questionable, and sterling character, and generally made good use of the time this atheist bitch has had on this dumpy sphere. I'm posting this as public so I can get suggestions that will jog my memory so I can actually make a proper music compilation. Seriously, I'm fucked without your help, GT.
Seeman - Apocalyptica feat. Nina Hagen (this woman is so hot)
Assimilate - Skinny Puppy (I trained as a stenographer and used this song as my constant metric to evaluate my writing speed. I always fell short. Then I met Nivek Ogre and felt even more floored.)
Kiss - London After Midnight (TW: rape lyrics)
Tears - The Crüxshadows (seriously I dare you to listen to this song and not hum it later)
Psychopomp - The Tea Party (A Canadian alt-rock band with Eastern influences. They predate the American political Tea Party caucus by a considerable margin of years. A psychopomp is a bird that carries the spirits of the dead from the land of the living to the land of the dead. I have loved this band for decades.
Passenger - Deftones feat. Maynard of Tool (You don't want to know how much sex I've had to this song. But seriously, how can you listen to this song and not want to fuck someone's brains out? That's a rhetorical questions, dude.)
Blood and Tears - Danzig. I love Danzig for reasons I can't fully articulate here. Oh, fuckit, since this is a post I can always delete it. My beloved Levitas Cat was named Danzig. Mostly because Glenn Danzig is a great composer and a man with a beautiful voice and who happens to have the name of a gorgeous city with a tragic history. But yeah. The name Danzig will always rip my heart to shreds.
Rise Like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst (live recording. I have loved Conchita since I heard her a few months ago and I will support her forever.)
If you can't tell, I VLARPed for many years. Nothing will ever excise that beloved stain from my soul.
The list of tracks that were on a sticky note that didn't make this list in hyperlink included the following artists/tracks:
Fleetwood Mac/Silver Springs
The Eagles/The Last Resort
David Bowie/Under Pressure
Opera IX/Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Miike Snow/A Horse is Not A Home
Type O Negative
Rosetta Stone (I had a whole paragraph written in an earlier draft about how ridiculous it was that I was trying to make honest Youtube searches for Rosetta Stone, Paradise Lost, and The Tea Party, and NONE OF THEM had anything to do with archaeology, literature, or American political nutjobbery! Sigh.
