MFF#19: Fuck This Place
This mix was made for Heather. I don’t talk to her very much anymore, but I used to talk to her every day. For a large chunk of this summer, I was living in an absolutely horrible student flat that was empty for the summer whilst trying (and failing) to find a job and waiting to be able to move in to the house I live in now. In retrospect, it was probably a huge mistake. A whole bunch of things either happened or didn’t happen that made it an absolutely miserable time, and I think I probably took this out on Heather quite a bit by being a fairly massive jerk to her for pretty much no reason. I’m not surprised she doesn’t bother to talk to me anymore. So this was kind of intended as an apology mix CD, and it’s full of some of the songs I listened to most during my time there, as well as songs I thought she’d like. It’s a pretty good mix of more indie/pop stuff, with a few curveballs in there. Often gloomy, as you might guess from the name, but occasionally cheerful too. It’s all over the place, much like I was at the time.
The cover photo is the view from the window of my flat. I really, seriously, hated that place. Click the cover to download, and although the folder will look a bit messy, it’s all tagged up properly.
