Love can be so sordid.  It makes sense and then it doesn’t and it drips all over the floor and messes up your life.  Everyone involved just wants a safe boat on the sea, but can you drop all expectation from your shipmates?  How far does unconditional love really go, anyway?

The title of this mix is meant to be somewhat ambiguous, but ultimately pertaining to the trial and error of any worthwhile relationship.  The most likely association is that of a woman being tamed.  Like a lion tamer, but taming a woman.  The lion connotation also works well considering the  astrological influence for this mix.  (Leo.)  On the other side, the title can also be interpreted as a woman who tames.  I know there are a lot of them out there, and many of them are Leos also.

So yeah.  It’s still the beginning of August.  We’re in the lioness’s den and we all just have to deal with that until the asshole Virgos (love you guys!) take the crown.  Until then, I guess this mix is for all those lovely Leo ladies out there.    Thanks for the strange depth.

Hey!  It’s a break up mix!  Maybe it’s a tad late, depending on how long it takes to dispossess another soul from their own.  We all know these things come in groups so surely someone out there can use it.

I’m in that number, so this mix came easy and out well.  Ideally, I’m hoping it will serve as a cathartic tool for anyone that needs it.  For no, my friends, these are not all songs of sadness or despair.  Each song feels naturally in its place within the progression.  If a person could submerge oneself into this mix, then perhaps it could live up to its title and provide a truly cathartic experience to the listener.

So though my particular situation is not quite resolved, I can say that I definitely learned at least one thing from it so far:  Your friends really don’t want to hear about this shit.

Fair enough…but everyone likes a mix tape!

“Until I Die (Rum Blues)” by Never Sorry with Lulu Skidoo – at Le Carnival des Autres – 1010 Gallery, Knoxville, TN – 5.6.2011

This weekend, Never Sorry played a crossdressed acoustic set at Le Carnival des Autres at 1010 Gallery in Knoxville.  In this video, we are joined by Lulu Skidoo (aka Michelle Sanders) for this performance of “Until I Die (Rum Blues).”  She wrote these lyrics.  Myself and Megan Driscoll fleshed out the music.  Then, obviously, everyone else together brought it into form.

This video was filmed by Maurita Roman. I have at least one more good recorded excerpt from the show and it will likely get posted soon.  For now though…

Today is St. Valentine’s Day once again and I have the loveliest of all Valentines, to be certain.  So I made this mix for her, prior to this day.  Now that she has digested it alone, I am sharing it here as a St. Valentine’s day mix for all.  What kind of love would I be spreading if I didn’t?
