I don't know if they're serious, but we may have a hair metal survivor on our hands.

Dear non-existent God, NO!

Also, the genre needs to be renamed hair hair, because there was so much hair and no metal involved.

So, Melony Lemons, I'm trying to create a positive DI tracklist.

It's hard bloody work. And I think it has too much post-rock.

For every good thing that happens in B&C, an equal, but opposite reaction must always occur.

What kind of post-rock? It's all pretty downbeat, but not all of it is a good soundtrack for a suicide.

Space Moon proved that.

bye Ali. I could never imagine going to bed as late as I do with school the next day. Midnight-1 AM maybe.

Well, here's how it all started. I was listening to Alcest's Tir Nan Og a few days ago on a really beautiful evening. Now, I think Tir Nan Og is the most beautiful album closer I've ever heard, and I thought it'd be an amazing way to end a tracklist. So I thought I'd try to make a tracklist of the most beautiful music I know, and in Desert Island style.

I'm a bit tired of how unpopular my actual songs are. I'd like people to enjoy the songs as well as the overall atmosphere and stuff. So there's that too. Though I can hear criticisms of this already in my head too. I keep reminding myself I'm making this list for me.

So I think with something focusing on beautiful music, the kind of stuff that soars and has atmosphere, it's going to naturally gravitate to some kinds of post-rock. I mean, EITS are there. Caspian, Yndi Halda, Eluvium, and This Will Destroy You too.

Have a good night, Ali, and I hope you don't end up too tired!

Don't worry about the criticisms you'll get over this; they'll be minimal in comparison. With your gift for getting a good atmosphere going, mixed with some songs that are actually quite beautiful, I may even enjoy it thoroughly. Post-rock is probably your best bet if you want to stay in your comfort zone a bit.

Damn, why in the hell would someone rip their vinyl copy of an album and post in on the internet in MP3 form? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. It not only sounds worse than a disc would, but it removes the innate warmth of vinyl.

I would like to surprise some people. I want it to be something where people say "this isn't what I expected from Axver". Part of it is based on the beautiful songs that evoke an emotional response from me, so it will stick to some of my comfort zones, but I want to head out into other areas too.

I am really enjoying this tracklist. Essay-writing has motivated it actually, as I write best to atmospheric music, Pure Reason Revolution in particular.

Now, there is a bit where I send the tracklist into darker territory, but it's only a few songs and it's to illustrate the darkly beautiful aspect.

I've found thematically it's developed into another tracklist about where I come from, like Part I of my DI III entry. I guess an idealised memory of what it was like in my childhood. It's cliche but it gives it meaning. It's not hard to illustrate New Zealand with sweeping soundscape music either.
