Forum name: Axver



Life In One Chord

The harsh Cold War reality has been replaced by the fearful and corrupt War On Terror reality. In a bleak world of monotonous life in a rundown post-Soviet city, one man pours his soul into his guitar to avoid being trampled down and forgotten. It leads him into conflict: with the obstinate music industry, with the attitudes of friends and lovers, with the pressures of travel. But most importantly, it leads to conflict with the monolithic and monotonous reality and to a discovery of hope.

Headphones are recommended for best effect. Cover credit goes to LemonMacPhisto.

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."

1. Julee Cruise- "I Float Alone" - Floating In The Night (4:35)
2. Phil Collins- "In The Air Tonight" - Face Value (5:32)
3. Miles Davis- "Miles Runs Down The Voodoo" - Bitches Brew (14:03)
4. U2- "Mysterious Ways" - Achtung Baby (4:04)
5. The Smiths- "How Soon Is Now?" - Meat Is Murder (6:41)
6. Pink Floyd- "Set Controls For The Heart Of The Sun" - Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd (5:20)
7. Peter Gabriel- "San Jacinto" - Security (6:34)
8. Genesis- "In The Cage" - Lamb Lies Down On Broadway (8:12)
9. Kate Bush- "The Dreaming" - The Dreaming (4:41)
10. Ennio Morricone - "The Ecstacy Of Gold" - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly Soundtrack (3:24)
11. Utopia- "Overture: Mountaintop and Sunrise/Communion With the Sun" - Ra (6:54)

I realize it's Columbus Day in the U.S. and Thanksgiving in Canada, but where the hell is everyone?

This is a very pivotal heat right here. I hope people show up between now and tomorrow morning, because we've got two great playlists here and I wouldn't want them to be shortchanged.

Axver gets my vote. The overall body of work is excellent and just above Screwtape's, which is great in its own right.

I'm going with Axver here. His playlist just beats out Screwtape's.

I suppose it's only fitting that this is going down to the wire. I'd just like to say for the record that although I've been using my notAxver account to avoid wasting my 30,000th post, I have not and will not vote with this account. I'm only voting with Axver. I'm not going to try to fix the results. I'm just going to hope a couple of cool people come along!

Ok, so in the five minutes since I posted, Axver received two votes. Looks like you got your wish.

ETA: liam showed up just in time...

Holy shit! I told Liam to get his arse over here because he was thumping the Supertracklist and should vote here too (though I didn't know if he'd pick me over Screwtape). Can't believe someone else came along though. Voting's been a trickle and then right at the end, two possibly decisive votes.

I'm kind of tempted to vote for Screwtape with notAxver to force a draw.
