It's that time again. Time for another fanmix by yours truly from one of the bazillion Big Bang events happening around LJ. This time it's for vampirebigbang. There's a lovely story by burningchaos set post Book 11 Turn Coat in the Dresden Files series. It's about Harry and his half-brother Thomas and the discovery that their feelings for each other might be more than brotherly. It's actually kind of adorkable (as is my mix). Her master post is here.

Anyhow, here the mix I put together for burningchaos. It's sort of (mostly) happy and I tried to keep it more on the dorky side of adorable, and not the smooshy side, because that's not the tone of the story at all. In typical me-style, there's a good mix of rock and weird indie/pop/STUFF. I don't know what to call it all. ANYHOW. I Hope you all enjoy!

Ludo - Love Me Dead
Anouk - Make it Rain
Starsailor - Shark Food
Cat Power - Red Apples
Halestorm - Familiar Taste of Poison
Nightwish - While Your Lips Still Are Red
Devendra Banhart - A Ribbon
10 Years - Fix Me
Flight Crash Companion - The Tried to Break You, 2.0
After Midnight Project - More to Live For
Breaking Benjamin - You
Jude - I Know
Amon Tobin - Keep Your Distance

Bonus Tracks!
Nightwish - Reach (Yes, there are two Nightwish songs on here, thanks for noticing!)
Lady Gaga - Monster (See I told you it was adorkable.)

Okay, so I lied. It's mostly angsty and grrr, with a few light moments tossed in. That's what I do.

You can grab the mix .zip file here (right click, save as)


PS. If you like this. I have some more coming soon, which are going to be awesome! Remember my Delerien mix? And how I said I kept putting it on repeat? Yeah, I've got a mix coming up like that. It's not violins, but it's got me listening to it over and over and over again.

PPS. I totes forgot to mention something about this mix. On the back cover, the Thomas I used is James Franco. I've never really been a big fan of his, but when I was looking through images of actors that would fit, I came across a photo shoot of his that totally solidified the idea for me. The images of Harry of course, are from the book covers.

Ooooh, I love that Nightwish song (it was on my personal mix while writing Delirien, amusingly enough). I will have to grab this when I get home today, and will keep an eye out for your next one!

Meaning 'While Your Lips Are Still Red'; I didn't see the second one until after I'd commented. Also, heee, Lady Gaga. That song does work alarmingly well for the Dresden Files.

I hope you like it. :) I love that Nightwish song too, a little different from their regular stuff, but still awesome.

I'll add the link in to your master post.

I'm glad that you're checking them out! The tag "music in the key of life" should have all of my playlists/fanmixes - so you can find them all that way. :)

Cool. I've got a few more on the way -- three, I think?

Ouch! Jolly Holliday is one of my absolute favs. I'll check what's up with it and let you know. (I may have cleared it out and not realized it. If that's the case I'll put it back for you.)

Jolly Holliday mix has been reuploaded. You can get it here. Hope you like it!

I think the Ludo song is an .mp4 which is the iTunes file type. I've had occasional trouble in the past with people downloading songs from me that are .mp4 even though they seem to work perfectly. So, it's probably the file type that's causing an issue. :( At least you already have it.

Loving the angsty grr. :)

And magical concert tickets have been acquired. Yay for Ticketmaster sending it to the right house this time. :)

It's the music I like the best -- it's a genre of its own.

ooooh yay!!

Ooh, looks awesome. Grabbing, thank you.
