Camping Sounds

Dre Wapenaar - TREETENTS (1998)
I've neglected to post about the odesseyian adventure and reckless abandon mixed drink that is summer camping in Wisconsin. I've neglected many other vitals recently including paying parking tickets, finding a job to pay rent, and buying toilet paper... but in my current pull-yourself-up-by-your-bootstraps git-er-done mood, this post seemed the most appropriate to complete. And honestly, what is weightier than a dynamic group of young adults putting aside an entire weekend to venture into the wilderness to learn important life lessons, puke them back up, and learn them again... sometimes at a rate of 60 in an hour.

Alongside beautiful people eloquently composing reflective text, I offer the following thoughtful playlist as a descriptive homage to Campsite #38 and hopefully as some inspiration for similar last-minute adventures.

DAY ONE: When there are pressing decisions to be made, depart for the closest secluded forest for a weekend.

The Theater Fire - I Heard About You (mp3)

Cursive - A Disruption from the Normal Swing of Things (mp3)

Miguel Mendez - Drinking Beers (mp3)

The Rapture - Get Myself Into It (Prince Language Disco Edit) (mp3)

Ray Lamontagne - Crazy (Gnarls Barkley cover) (mp3)

The Doves - Firesuite (mp3)

DAY TWO: Before noon, I can only be awoken with a cocktail of the following recipe: 1) a hot dog penis, 2) a healthy dose of peanut butter, 3) "wakin bacon", and 4) a swig of vodka, whiskey, and orange juice.

The Evangelicals - Another Day (And You're Still Knocked Out) (mp3)

Crosstops - Camping with Two Bisexual Girls (mp3)

The Tossers - Drinking in the Day (mp3)

Scala - I Touch Myself (Divinyls cover)

Girl Talk - Bounce That (mp3)

The New Pornographers - The Slow Descent Into Alcoholism (mp3)

Leslie & The Lys - Bonus (Dinosaur) (mp3)

Eve 6 - Here's to the Night (mp3)

DAY THREE: To my extensive pickup line repetoire (most famous for the raspy, crooning"Hey Ladies") was added "If you get off work soon, there are body shots in the parking lot".

Summer Hymns - Wet Mess (mp3)

So Many Dynamos - Search Party (mp3)

Caroline - Sunrise (mp3)

My Brightest Diamond - Something of an End (mp3)

Well... I suppose.

salty
noun 1: someone who drinks one and a half bottles of a roomate's red wine; 2: someone who throws personal objects across the room while listening exclusively to bright eyes; 3: someone who acts out a self-fulfilling prophecy in which everyone hates him/her because of obnoxiously thinking everyone hates him/her; 4: anyone with a wound, a bottle, and very little to lose; "that grimaced, gin-marinated man choosing the gutter over (or because of) his noble gentry... looks like a salty" or "that salty just dedicated Missy Eliott's I Hate You So Much Right Now to me"

Whoa I haven't heard "Here's To The Night" in years. That brings back some memories.

Kyle, I wrote this in my blog, but will put it here too. Yea, the cover of " I touch myself" very disturbing. The sound it self is wonderful, but then when you listen to it and what they are singing, creepy....
