accidental flares of love burst through the atmosphere

Playlist 12: Slightly Ambivalent

I've given up trying to explain my taste in music to people and most people have given up trying to predict what I'll like (I usually fucking hate everything people try to get me to listen to...but I think that's just because I'm an awful person). Here's a playlist with a ton of eclectic shit on it that I tried to organize as well as I could. Everyone will probably only like one half of it. I'm not even going to bother putting this one up on Designers.MX because I'm sure I'd just get a ton of comments on it that are like, "This makes no sense, I don't get it" and blahhhh blah. What the fuck is there to get? It's a playlist. But I digress.

Listen and subscribe here, if you can make sense of this one ;)

I am going to Los Angeles to build a screenplay
about lovers who murder each other
I am going to Los Angeles to see my own name
on a screen, five feet long and luminous
as the radioman says, it is 5am
and the sun has charred the other side of the world and come back to us
and painted the smoke over our heads an imperial violet
it is 5am and you are listening to Los Angeles

The stupid, the moonshine, the Star Me Kitten

The bar, the car, the street
