it's all hopeless, but it's not serious

Artist Song
owen  who's found who's hair in who's bed  
cat power  back of your head 
beck  lost cause 
amy rigby  better stay gone 
the velvet teen  forlorn 
the new year  the newness e nds 
chris walla  our plans, collapsing 
the new pornographers  my rights vs. yours 
say hi to your mom  prefers unhappy e ndings 
steven jackson & the leavers  the leavers and the left-behinds 
rogue wave  love's lost guarantee 
cheri knight  white lies 
pedro the lion  bad diary days 
bob mould  the silence between us 
the magnetic fields  i'll dream alone 
loudon wainwright iii  our own war 
idlewild  live in a hiding place 
the beautiful south  hot on the heels of heartache 
nada surf  always love 
quasi  i never want to see you again 


Going through a break-up is never easy, neither for the leaver nor the left-behind. And who cannot relate from first-hand experience? But in the words of the poet, Ms. Browning: "I would rather experience a hopeless love than a passionless love." In other words, it is better to have loved and lost as long as you loved (and were loved) well.

This is the first of two alt-dj mixes from natalyesaurus and avocado rabbit. Natalye is not big on capital letters as you can see above, and her mixing partner wants to cheer her up.

But of course there is a quiz: Which band in this mix is led by a husband and wife who have split up?

Browning was an incredible poet. I absolutely love (with capital letters) that Beck track. And Loudon!

Is this title something like Desperate, But Not Serious? This playlist certainly has no capital letters, but has plenty of capital artists and is put together by two capital mixers. Long-stemmed red roses to both of you!

The thought that has gone into this mix is great. Is the answer to the quiz Quasi (Sam Coombs and Janet Weiss)?
