Ed’s 2019 Yule Tide Mix

Whoa, I am way behind on updating to my website. I will do better at this some day. But for now…how about a little music?

I realized something after mixing this together…The songs are all rather upbeat, major keys. You can tap your foot to most of them. But upon analyzing the lyrics to the various songs there’s a darkness to this mix. I didn’t plan for it to be there, but it’s there. I still think it’s a good mix and I’ve been enjoying listening to it for the last couple weeks, but I wonder if I subconsciously made a mix that reflects the way this year has made me feel as a person.

That’s the best kind of subtext. Anyway I hope you enjoy.

Finally some sleep

Had a few dreams last night. Freshest one found me lighting fire crackers on the sidewalk by my house. I get a little freaked out when I see thus bright red light, thinking I started a fire, but after frantically trying to find that fire to put it out, I realize it’s just an especially vibrant sunrise.

This begs the question, why was I lighting fire crackers before dawn?

What’s that line in The Lord Of The Rings about a red dawn? Blood has been spilt this night? I don’t think my subconscious was working on that level.

The actual sunrise was not so vibrant.

Sunrise
Sunrise...what sunrise?

Interestingly, the sleep report suggests I finally got a good night sleep:

Sleep report for April 16-17, 2012

See those valleys? I never get those! It’s cool. I wonder if it has anything to do with me sleeping the opposite direction on my bed. Maybe I’ve been getting up on the wrong side this whole time. I suppose I’ll find out tonight.
