Autumn is (nearly) over

Christmas lights are up in (almost) every corner of the world, the temperatures have dropped dramatically in the past week, I’m now wearing my new gloves and thinking about Christmas presents, the longest bank holiday of the year is here (in Spain, that is) and in about a couple of days time my house would give anybody an epileptic fit.

So I’m sharing these photos from last year before it’s too late and I have to save them for next year.

As usual, click on them to see bigger versions on flickr.

It’s that time of the year again (a playlist for cold weather)

It feels like every autumn/winter sees a new melancholic playlist/mix CD from me. This is this year’s. I don’t have any music on my computer at the moment, so I can only offer a spotify link.

01. The Velvet Underground – Sunday Morning
02. Jason Anderson – I am like snow to you
03. Braid – Always Something There to Remind Me
04. Archers of Loaf – Floating Friends
05. Elliott Smith – The Biggest Lie
06. Texas is the Reason – Antique
07. Múm – A little bit, Sometimes
08. Guided by Voices – Hold on Hope
09. Bon Iver – For Emma
10. The Mountain Goats – Song for Lonely Giants
11. Cap’n Jazz – Basil’s Kite
12. Casiotone for the Painfully Alone – Don’t They Have Payphones Wherever You Were Last Night
13. Mogwai – Dial: Revenge

If you want something to download, why not check out last year’s playlist? The cover is my blog’s header, and you can download it here (part I) and here (part II). I made it in January last year and it still gets played often. I swear it’s only a coincidence that the same Elliott Smith song got on both of them

Autumn in the forest

The only thing I miss about living in a small town in Kent where there was nothing to do is living next to a huge park full of deer. These photos were taken last autumn, and you can find bigger and better versions on my flickr.
