My first post for the lovely [profile] lisal825's [livejournal.com profile] lisal825 Literary Lads We Love Meme... Fest... Thing. Lisa is doing a big thing made of small things. This is my small thing:

10 Tracks
Includes .zip file and individual DL links
(Extremely) vague spoilers for the final book

So, this is a very hastily put together, spur of the moment thing. As usual, I am right in the middle of planning an essay as we speak. (Question: To What Extent Did the First World War Transform the British State? Answer: Lots and lots, yes/yes? Zzzzzz.) So I'm extremely bored, as you can imagine. I can't help but think that starting a relatively short piece of work over twenty four hours before it's due really takes the challenge away. I want the adrenaline rush, you know? So, yes, instead I am taking a super short break to make this. I hope you enjoy it.

I initially wanted to make a long, long list about all the ways in which Dumbledore is subversive, awesome character. I eventually decided the list idea against it because a) I am doing a similar post for Littlefinger, and I am stuck because words, words, words, and b) I imagine my take on Dumbledore isn't atypical in fandom, and since this fandom is so large, what could I possibly add? I'm kind of wishing that I had done the list now, if only just to confirm that my take on Dumbledore isn't atypical. I'm sure it isn't. Whatever.

Questions, comments and insults all welcome.

[Note] I am an idiot and forgot to include Track #1 in the .zip file. The individual download link works though, so if you want the song, please get it from there.

+ zip

01. Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out) -- The Arcade Fire

I woke up with the power out
Not really something to shout about
Ice has covered up my parent's hands
Don't have any dreams, don't have any plans

I went out into the night
I went out to find some light

02. Intervention -- The Arcade Fire (I know I use this in every fanmix ever, but... but...)

Working for the Church
While my family dies
Your little baby sister's
Gonna lose her mind
Every spark of friendship and love
Will die without a home
Hear the soldier groan, "We'll go at it alone"

I can taste your fear
It's gonna lift you up and take you out of here
And the bone shall never heal
I care not if you kneel

03. Holocene -- Bon Iver

And at once I knew I was not magnificent
High above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

04. We Are Nowhere And It's Now -- Bright Eyes

If you hate the taste of wine
Why do you drink it 'til you're blind?
And if you swear that there's no truth and who cares
How come you say it like you're right?
Why are you scared to dream of god
When it's salvation that you want?
You see stars that clear have been dead for years
But the idea just lives on

05. Man on Fire (Little Daylight Remix) -- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

Come dance with me
Over murder and pain
Come and set you free
Over heartache and shame

Only one desire
That’s left in me
I want the whole damn world
To come and dance with me

06. Walk Home -- Sleeping Bag

Keeping all the jewels, running with the thieves
Got to take advantage of someone, so it seems
Keeping what you owe, people that you know
Have to take advantage of something

When you walk home

07. Wolf -- First Aid Kit

Wolf father, at the door
You don't smile anymore
You're a drifter, shapeshifter
Let me see you run, hey ya hey ya

When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Where the sun would set, trees were dead and the rivers were none
And I hope for a trace to lead me back home from this place
But there was no sound, there was only me and my disgrace

08. Girl From Kandahar -- Fuchsia

Some choose to live on their knees
And some to die standing
How could they ask us this?
No choice but complying

You'll find in people there's a hidden side
Some play their Dr. Jekyll and there's Mr. Hyde
Some talk of moderation and you realise
There's no escaping when two cultures will collide

09. Power -- Kanye West ([personal profile] 12_12_12 has had a terribad effect on me)

I'm living in that 21st century doin' something mean to it
Do it better then anybody you ever seen do it
Screams from the haters, got a nice ring to it
I guess every superhero need his theme music

No one man should have all that power
The clocks tickin' I just count the hours
Stop trippin' I'm trippin' off the power
(21st century Schizoid Man)

00. Split Like a Lip, No Blood on the Beard -- Buke and Gase
