So I've been working on a project for the month before the Lost finale. Starting on April 23, I'll post a song on my tumblr each day that reminds me of the show and an artwork, and then in the end I'll collect it all on LJ to make one big fanmix.

Except as I was picking songs, I realized that through my current obsessive glasses, everything was reminding me of the island mindfuck OT3. and Juliet, but that doesn't count because every song actually IS about her

Because [ profile] usedshoes and [ profile] buongiornodaisy = enablers, who encouraged me to go through with this craziness, I decided to put together a quick mix before I start the 31 Days of Lost.

Someone To Watch Over Me
A Jacob + Man in Black + Richard mix

full album download
(sendspace mirror)

If those don't work, try this .tgz file (should be openable on Winrar)

Radiohead - Nude (download)
Don't get any big ideas
they're not gonna happen
You paint yourself white
and feel up with noise
but there'll be something missing

Now that you've found it, it's gone
Now that you feel it, you don't
You've gone off the rails

So don't get any big ideas
they're not going to happen

You'll go to hell for what your dirty mind is thinking

Mountain Goats - Grendel's Mother (download)
The cave mouth shines.
By pure force of will
I look down on the world
From the top of this lonesome hill.
And you can run, and run some more
From here all the way to Singapore,
But I will carry you home in my teeth.

In the great hall you drink red wine.
You chew meat off the bone.
I beat down the new path to the castle.
I come naked and alone.
I laid my son on the bier; I burned the wreath.
Fire overhead, water underneath.
You can stand up, or you can run.
You and I both know what you've done,
And I will carry you home.
I will carry you home.
I will carry you home in my teeth.

Soap&Skin - Thanatos (download)
I swell without a scar to end the time
A shell without a star at the end of time

Watch the bend of my wandering
of hunting with the lightning gun

Tremor on my heaven son
Tares above my kingdom come

Torn open tomb
I fell in your cold fission bomb
I fell in your war

Ages of delirium, curse of my oblivion
Tremor on my heaven son
Tares above my kingdom come

M Ward - Fisher of Men (download)
He's a fisher of men and he's wise as a prize fighter
He's like a soul miner mining souls on down the great divide
Oh, he's a fisher of men

And he put his name in my verses and his name in the hook
Before I knew what I was cooking, it was already cooked
He's got a line in the water, he's a fisher of men

And he put his name in my chorus, in the dark before the dawn
So that in my hour of weakness, I'd remember it's his song
He's got a line in the water, he's a fisher of men

Hird - Water Under My Bridges (download)
Every day floats by
Like water under my bridges

Every day floats by

Deerhunter - Nothing Ever Happened (download)
Only when I dream but there's no way out
You learn to talk, you learn to shout
Focus on depth that was never there
Eliminate what you can't repair

Nothing ever happened to me
Nothing ever happened to me
Nothing ever happened to me
Life just passing, flash right thru me

See thru the wind to awakened stream
Adjust your eyes to the state of things
Focus on depths that was never there
Nothing's easy nothing's fair

Nothing ever happened to me
Nothing ever happened to me
Nothing ever happened to me
Life just passing, flash right thru me

Leonard Cohen - Avalanche (download)
When I am on a pedestal,
you did not raise me there.
Your laws do not compel me
to kneel grotesque and bare.
I myself am the pedestal
for this ugly hump at which you stare.

You who wish to conquer pain,
you must learn what makes me kind;
the crumbs of love that you offer me,
they're the crumbs I've left behind.
Your pain is no credential here,
it's just the shadow, shadow of my wound.

I have begun to long for you,
I who have no greed;
I have begun to ask for you,
I who have no need.
You say you've gone away from me,
but I can feel you when you breathe.

Ella Fitzgerald - Someone to Watch Over Me (download)
There's a somebody I'm longin' to see
I hope that he, turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could, always be good
To one who'll watch over me

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he carries the key

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me

Blue Oyster Cult - Burnin' For You (download)
Time is the essence
Time is the season
Time ain't no reason
Got no time to slow

Time everlasting
Time to play besides
Time ain't on my side
Time I'll never know

Burn out the day
Burn out the night
I'm not the one to tell you what's wrong or what's right
I've seen suns that were freezing and lives that were through

But I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you
I'm burning, I'm burning, I'm burning for you

Sonic Youth - Sunday (download)
Sunday comes alone again
A perfect day for a quiet friend
And you, you will set it free

I see new morning yound your face
Everybody says it's another phase
And now, now it's come to me

See the magic in your eyes
I see it come as no surprise
And you, you turn your eyes away
Yeah, you, you turn it all away

I guess it's true, it's never too late
Still I don't know what to do today
Oh, why can't I set you free?
Will you do the same for me?

Emahoy Tsegué-Maryam Guèbrou - Ballad of the Spirits (download)

Fever Ray - I'm Not Done (download)
Some do magic
and some do harm
I'm holding on
holding on
I'm holding on to a straw

Who is the Alpha?
and what is made of cloth?
How do you say you're sorry
and there's nothing to be afraid of?

Is it dark already?
how light is a light?
do you laugh while screaming?
is it cold outside?

One thing I know for certain
oh I'm pretty sure
it ain't over
I'm not done

Radiohead - Bodysnatchers (download)
I do not
What it is
I've done wrong

Full of holes
Check for pulse
Blink your eyes
One for yes
Two for no

I have no idea what I am talking about
I am trapped in this body and can't get out

Make a sound
Move back home
A pale imitation
With the edges sawn off

I have no idea what you are talking about
Your mouth moves everywhere

Has the light gone out for you?
Cause the light's gone out for me
It is the 21st century
It is the 21st century
You can fight it like a dog
It brought me to my knees
They got scared and they put me in
They got scared and they put me in
All their eyes wrapped around my face
All their eyes wrapped around my face
Although everybody else can see
Although everybody else can see

I'm alive

I've seen it coming

Bonus track: Lady GaGa - Monster (download). I could not resist.

Jacob Christ! This is amazing! I was waiting for someone to make an OT3 fanmix AND YOU DID IT. Taking like every other song, thank you.

He's a fisher of men and he's wise as a prize fighter
He's like a soul miner mining souls on down the great divide
Oh, he's a fisher of men

OH THIS DESCRIBES JACOB SO PERFECTLY. I don't know if that's what you had in mind (if I make a fanmix it's always very personal and I never know/care if other people pick up on my meanings so sorry if I interpret this completely wrong) but yes, yes, YES.

From: [identity profile]
IT SOOOO IS. ... the upside of Lost's obsession with religious symbolism is that every song about a religious figure is ACTUALLY about Jacob.

(I know what you mean about the fanmix being personal, I don't care much for leaving explanations cause I figure most people will pick up on it, and if they don't maybe the way they see it is more meaningful to them? Plus, this way people can decide if they see the mix as slashy or not lmao)

I love. love. love. That in this mix there's Ella Fitzgerald AND Radiohead. Funny random fact: my music teacher in high school was the drummer from Blue Oyster Cult. He showed me his iPod. it was awesome. And yes. Every song IS about Juliet.

I've been checking out a ton of old movie posters - hence the tumblr post last night with the creepy Roman Polanski one - and they def knew how to rock the single-color look. I miss those days. (Not that I was alive then but you know.)

I'm listening now, this is genius.

I'm in such a old/silent film high right now that I know exactly what you mean. They were so colorful and creative, mostly illustrated. Now-a-days it's all excessive photoshop and boring ideas.

ext_44710: (' where are you going/where've you been)
From: [identity profile]
Yes, and every poster either has super contrasty blue/orange photography or big red text to tell you it's a comedy. BORING. I guess movie posters will be dying out though, with DVD rentals and downloads and movies on-demand becoming more popular.

I'm glad you like :D

AHHH. I love your taste in music; all these songs have a LOST feeling about them, and I absolutely love it. Grendel's Mother came on shuffle a bit ago, and I immediately thought SMOKEY/JACOB.
