the best stories have the biggest plot holes

this is me

"So if I want to drink alone dressed like a pirate,
or look like a dyke,
or wear high heels and lipstick,
or hide in a convent,
or try to be mayor,
or marry a writer,
smoke crack and slash tires,
make jokes you don't like,
or paint ducks and retire...
-Amanda Palmer


My name is Amita, I live in Vancouver, and I am 18.
I participate in the Star Wars fandom and bandom.
I complain, a lot, mostly the lack of friends I have that I can actually stand being around.

I am always looking to make new lj friends, so feel free to add me.  :)

In striking coincidence, Ben Kellau’ie had been stationed on Kalevala for seventeen years(.)'

Additional Tracks
  Also, I mentioned three songs in the fic that none of my mixers included- so I'm including them here!

I included 'Diamonds and Gold' by Tom Waits because in the movie, Ryan's character kills himself while listening to 'Dead and Lovely.' I changed it to 'Diamonds and Gold' because of the meaning to rl Ryan, who has lyrics from the song tattooed on his wrists.

The inclusion of 'I'm Afraid of Who's Afraid of Virgina Wolfe' by Murder by Death is nothing but shameless promotion. I love this band so much and they are super involved with bandom bands, and wanted to spread their sound!

Finally, I put a lot of consideration as to which Fall Out Boy song to include. Int the film, Pete's character has a tape of his old band's song called 'Through the Roof and Underground.' I wanted a FOB song that rivaled Gogol Bordelo's, and finally settled 'Of All the Gin Joints in the World.'

mixer's notes --  I honestly cannot tell you how excited I was to come across a Wristcutters: A Love Story AU. I adore the movie and was thrilled to be able to mix your fic! In keeping with the road-trip/otherworldly vibe, I set out to make a mix that would compliment that as well as the plot. Some songs, like "Lazy Confessions" struck me as just unpolished and quirky enough to fit within the world through which Ryan, Pete, and Brendon are traveling. Others, like "Foundations", are meant to speak to what's actually going on. Ryan's in an interesting place and makes an emotional journey as well as a physical one and I really hope I managed to capture that and create some ambiance as well. Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to mix your fic and for writing something so delightful to read!  

I really hope you enjoy listening to this mix as much as I enjoyed making it!

Wow!   This mix was so beautiful, and I am so surprised that this was the only mix that used a song that I mentioned in the fic, and even then, made it a different version!   It's a beautiful idea and I'm so happy.  :)   Just like she described, so many songs just fit and I adore it!   Thank you so much, lady_deathangel .  ♥

a note from the mixer -
    In the .zip of the songs I missed the number 10 on the third track statistics before I uploaded it and everything. And I made the file on my other computer so I can't change it now. So sorry, that isn't actually supposed to be there!

eeee mixes!   I'm still so excited people took to the time to do this stuff for me!!!   I adore this mix for including songs by bands that I love, but didn't realise related to my story at all.  It also introduced me to a few new bands and songs (suddenly, Foxy Shazam is popping up everywhere!)  and I'm so glad discotechnical , who has the bestest username ever, took the time to make this for me.  ♥
