Threadswindows: A Mid-Winter Mixtape

threadswindows

Due (most likely) to exhaustion, I’ve noticed that the majority of these songs are instrumental. I suppose that’s because at this particular time I’m beyond words, simply working toward getting on my feet again.

Each of them have lived with me at different times over the past month or so, now keeping me company as I organize for the new year and prepare of my first review of 2015: Tarsem’s The Fall (2006). I couldn’t think of a more appropriate time to revisit this particular film, charting despair to hope. Some of its dialogue is featured below.

Keeping that in mind, I suppose these songs do the same thing.
