Forum name: Screwtape2



Playlist Title: The Red Hills House

LJ Entry explaining playlist: http://screwtape2.livejournal.com/8011.html#comments

What is man afraid of more than anything else? Is it death? Is it love? This is the story of a man, a woman and the female orgasm. The fear of which has brought two people together: a female drifter and a man with a car. The woman says, "Take me home." Her finger points to the west and higher. This woman lives in a house surrounded by red rock. The man on the other hand must resist the urge to engage this beauty sexually for fear of the female anatomy. In the orgasm there is a meeting with mortality and the heart of the universe itself. It is the revelation and confession before the dance. It is the soliloquy before the death of stars and children. When listening to the playlist envision the journey either by road of by bed. These are the final moments before the real show.

A Girl- "When I was a child, I used to play in the snow. It was my world and a place where I created. A strange effect followed that. In adulthood, I would chill when I was in the awe of love. Those singular moments would bring shivers. Love is the warm wrapping of another's wings around you. I now bring myself to be frozen in the awe of love with the hope that your wings will wrap me. May our wings bring us under the covers where the outside world is held back. I don't want to be alone anymore."

A Boy- "When I was a child, I almost died in a swimming pool. I've never been that alone in my entire life but I've never been afraid since. The nearest I ever come is when I think about others alone. Love is all I have ever wanted but love brings sex. In the orgasm, there lies the whisper of death and beating heart to silence. Then we're both alone. I don't want to be alone anymore."

A Man- "In a nightmare
To fuck
Too fragile to save the woman
She bleeds a river through the pass
Underfoot
The childhood security of life
In gasps the hand of death on her forehead
Sweat is dangerous
If we go swimming together,
Will I be accused as the murderer
As she is the one who bleeds?"

To touch
To discover
One finger down a cheek
A nose running down the other
Lips opening
Hair put down
Brushed out of a face
A blanket wrapping around
Sealing a moment inside
A kiss
A vow
A promise

A Woman- "Outside there is beautiful sunset. The kind with a purple sky and a gentle explosion of orange as delicate as straw in the wind. It is a moment when all things stop and the demons of the day rest. I miss childhood wonder. Staring at these colorful curtains before Orion comes out to play. It is like love over and over this little marble. I miss falling towards whatever dreams the night may hold. One last breath. One last lover's kiss in the presence of the awe of love. One last smile before the real show."

Oh bloody hell, this is too hard to decide. I'll wait and see how this pans out. If it turns out my vote will aid in someone getting a bonus point, then that might make the decision easier, because this is truly an evenly fought battle.

Screwtape2. I don't buy the concept, but the songs are good. Rates a little higher than Liamcool's list.

Sorry about the scheduling. It is complicated and messy with 15 entries. I tried my best to have everyone play a match early. It didn't work out though.

I like liamcool's playlist and would like to see it get a point, and it appears Screwtape will win this one, so I'm voting for liam.

I'm glad Liamcool is getting a point because his playlist really deserves it.

Wow, I'm surprised how close Liam is. After further consideration, I had to give my vote to him. Both Liam and Screwtape are very good at creating setlists that flow well and are cohesive - I needn't elaborate on what I've said plenty of times in the past. What clinched it for me is twofold: firstly, as the tracklists as a whole are so evenly poised, I had to break it down to individual songs and I generally favour Liam's selections; secondly, I just love Liam's ending. It's the best and most original in the tournament. He goes against all ideas of what should happen and reaches a powerful conclusion. I can't not vote for that.
