The Blue Pill: Step Away from Awareness
Part I: Choose a Mood
Part II: Dwell
Part III: Glimmer

I am not an optimist, but I highly value happiness and life, and as such this mix is a bit of a stretch. The purpose of this mix is to amplify a down mood and let the listener take some time with it. I didn't want to dwell on the death of a lead singer, or focus on a scene in a movie, or any ex-relationship. These are the breaks. Ruminate with dignity.

I think thats my favorite portishead song at this point. Have you ever seen the black and white they made to go with this song? It's fucking stupid. I love the song, and I love portishead, but that movie is fucking retarded. I hate when the ideas in your head are better than what the performers do. It always kills it for me. That Tom Waits song is fucking killer. This mix is dam good! ++
