Cura is my weekly-ish mixtape. You can listen to it and subscribe here. If you like to listen to music with ads, Youtube is your friend. I keep it as one playlist so it’s easy to subscribe to. I update it fairly frequently, but I also keep an archive playlist on Spotify so you don’t have to miss a thing.

I hope you like it. I made it for you.

Here’s this playlist’s lyric poem:

I’m glad that we broke up, And I’m glad that you’re back. And up where I’d climbed, it felt so pretty. Save your worries for another place and time. Don’t forget what you’ve learned. All you give is returned. What can’t be decided. In the morning it will bring itself to you. But I just wanna party all the time (And I just wanna get stuff done) I revel in the hands of love I bite I scratch I destroy. Horror in the face of love I fought I love I enjoy.This is the up and down. This is the in and out. This is the quiet and loud. This is the way. Was there anything I missed. As far as you know?. When all our bones and muscles hurt, what’s so funny about that? When you remember a saying you can’t relearn, what’s so funny about that?

Here’s this week’s lyric poem:

I put a spell on you, Because you’re mine. So, shush, shut your mouth. I’m not listening anyhow. I can’t make this house a home. I don’t want to make you hate me. Isn’t it so funny, How beautiful you are When you’re walking out the door. I befriended all my enemies. They had my back against the wall. And loving is hard, it don’t always work. You just try your best not to get hurt. And how could I ever think that it was meant to be. And how could I ever think that anything was made for me? Keep it slow. Oh, I know, know, know, know. Let me go. But never let me go. Spinning through the town, Sooner or later, the fever ends.

Here’s this week’s lyirc poem:

All I want in life’s a little bit of love to take the pain away. Getting strong today. My legs ain’t stuck to the ground. I don’t even want a job. When am I gonna start being cool, like everybody else is, everybody else is. If I was your girl in this damn world, I’d cut you in two. In the golden hour, holding on to burning embers, there’s no sound. And if you’re ever lonely, if you can’t find the way, if this world comes to an end, I wanna be there with you. These are the people that I get drunk with. These are the people that I fell in love with. Please don’t leave me blue. Make all my dreams come true? Maybe it’s time to get out of bed.

Soundiiz Cura Link List

I’ve been making these cura playlists for a while now, but if you’re not on Spotify, you can’t really enjoy it. Music listening is super splintered, man. Starting today, I’ve made a little mini-link site for Cura, where you can click on the service you have and listen to it there.

The link is right here. You can click this and go to the thing I made. So far, I’ve got Apple Music, Spotify, and Youtube. I’d add Amazon music for a certain someone but that’s not a real music service apparently so I can’t do it yet.

Mixtape 2019

I began an experiment two years ago to build playlists of my favourite songs for every year. It began with the 80s and 90s, and then I sort of retroactively made them for this century. I’m slowly hitting the 70s but that music feels really far away for me, so it takes a bit longer to sift through.

If you follow me on Spotify, you’ll find a lot of year mixtapes.

These mixtapes are personal and subjective as hell and probably a bit corny for some while being too unknown for others. Music’s hard. I try to keep it to 20-30 songs per year but that number wildly fluctuates. I thought I hated 2019 but this one is 34 songs and I really love them all.

Here it is on Spotify:

Cura

I wrote a lot this morning but it was all very personal stuff that isn’t for the book and isn’t something I can put here, so instead I’ll just share this semi-weekly playlist I make on Spotify that’s also deeply personal. I’m having that kind of day I guess.

Cura is a mid-level spell in Final Fantasy, the kind that heals your character a little bit more than just a regular Cure. It’s fucking dorky but it’s also exactly what this playlist is going for.

You can subscribe to this playlist, and it’ll auto-update with new songs every few weeks. Save the ones that break your heart.
