If David Bowie is Fëanor, Robert Plant is Finrod.
Celtic with a hard c - There was a dire need for a mostly traditional Celtic folk mix not including Whiskey in the jar nor any Michael Flatley sequin bullshit, I thought. Just a couple of my personal favourites, not necessarily but mostly from Celtic performers. I’m not pretending to be anything of an expert, just an enthusiast - that is not pretend.

The mix is a birthday gift to myself, technically. (That, and having my Dad’s/Gran’s ‘63 watch repaired.) You’ll get a post tomorrow, probably. One week late and I wasn’t even drunk for the duration. Some of the performers’ names may be incorrect due to SoundCloud labelling, drop me a line if that’s the case.
We’re having the flat painted, thus two-week semi-hiatus, no worries, I’m probably still alive and thinking about horrible puns even if I don’t report regularly.
My Body Is A Cage - Arcade Fire

#[sharp inhale] #these are the times that try canon; seriously this is the point in time where i’m going to ignore agents of shield for THIS PRECISE REASON #the immediate decision to rebuild shield cheapens this turn so fucking much i dont CARE about what cap 2 does for your mediocre tv show #you cannot mistake this film for anything except what it is - a movie made in the 21st century when we’re moving#out of the immediate recent past; it couldn’t have been made at any other time other than now and to TEAR! AWAY! THAT MASK! #and show you that anyone and anything is capable of being /this/; that this rot can grow anywhere and that #we’re not as different as we like to think - is such a smart decision #it topples the status quo it is very decidedly moving forward and goddammit this show had to go and ruin it #man fuck it fuck it so hard fuck it to hell (ilvalentinos)

#yeah. YEAH.#THE POINT IS THAT SURVEILLING AND SIGNIFYING ANY HUMAN LIFE AS IMMEDIATELY WORTHY OF DESTRUCTION WITHOUT THEM DOING ANYTHING WRONG#IS NOT! A GOOD FOUNDATION! FOR A GOVERNMENT ORGANIZATION!#WE CANNOT PREDETERMINE HUMAN LIFE AS DISPOSABLE; WORTHY OF DESTRUCTION; PART OF A MASS OF OTHER THAT WILL DESTROY US#WE CANNOT CHARACTERIZE SOME HUMANS AS GRIEVABLE AND MOURNABLE AND OTHERS AS /NOT/#THE WHOLE POINT OF CAP 2 IS YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES. BY HAVING THE DRONES; YOU HAVE EMBODIED THE IDEA THAT SOME HUMANS ARE MORE GRIEVABLE;#RECOGNIZABLE; WORTHY OF CARE#YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES AND EXPECT THE ORGANIZATION TO STILL BE ‘GOOD’#YOU CAN’T HAVE THE DRONES!
