teh s3quence 015 – HALLOWEEN 2011 EDITION

Because I like to do things out of order (and also because I totally forgot that I hadn’t posted teh s3quence 014…), I’m giving you teh s3quence 015, the HALLOWEEN EDITION!

Usually when I make a Halloween mix, it’s pretty straightforward — pick a bunch of songs that are about zombies, vampires, ghosts or are otherwise spooky, mash them together, make sure there’s at least one requisite track from an actual Zombie (Zombie Girl, White Zombie, Rob Zombie, Nik Fiend (who actually is a zombie) and call it good. This year, I went about it a bit different.

Rather than just get a bunch of Halloween-themed songs, I tried to pick tracks that were actually spooky, not just about spooky things, or spooky in a campy way (see: Sneaky Bat Machine and Voltaire). So this mix has a lot more emphasis on mood and ambiance. Oh, there’s the Zombie Girl track in there, too, and I threw in “Everyday is Halloween” at the end to lighten the mood (how often can you say that you added Ministry to lighten the mood?), but otherwise I was going for stuff you might actually play if you were hosting a haunted house or a let’s-all-watch-The-Exorcist party. Also, you know, I had to step up my game this year to compete with @slighter’s Halloween Mix…

teh s3quence 012 – the rapture edition (…or not)

Sometime before the world was supposed to end in earthquakes and fire I decided to make a playlist to commemorate the event.  No, actually I was just inspired by the #myraptureplaylist meme that @neilhimself started on Twitter and HuffPo’s Rapture playlist (most of which doesn’t appear on mine).  The majority of this mixtape was compiled post-rapture, so this is really more a the-rapture-didn’t-happen-and-we’re-all-still-stuck-here mix. 

with all the stuff that’s supposed to happen post-rapture, you’d think it would have already come…

teh anti-4th(of july) s3quence

i always make these playlists for various holidays that are the opposite of the norm.  so, like alien sex fiend’s “stuff the turkey” or the ramones’ “merry christmas (i don’t want to fight tonight” for christmas.  in that spirit, and in the spirit that dissent is patriotic (even though, for the first time in a long while, i actually have a bit of hope for the country and faith in our prez), i make this anti-4th of july mix, which is somewhat appropriately posted on the 5th of july (although, it would have been better had i had this idea earlier and posted it on the 4th to combat all the “star spangled banners ” and “america the beautifuls” and john phillip sousa marches).

so put the speakers in the window and crank this baby out, blow up some leftover, illegal fireworks and have an anti-4th barbecue.
