Mixtape VIII: Transatlantic Yearning

"If the only place where I could see you was in my dreams, I'd sleep forever."

A mixtape is a long celebrated tradition between music fans which is used to reflect many things about the compiler tastes & feelings. This can also range from a casually selected list of favorite songs, to a conceptual mix of songs linked by a theme or mood. Since the last time i have posted i have developed (dare i say) a crush on an very special, talented individual who lives on the other side of the world from where i am placed. 

The question remains: can someone you have never met, yet occasionally speak to online generate some vague but strong emotions inside of someone? There is no denying that we now live in a mediated culture where we are bombarded & equally surrounded by images nearly every second of our live, especially living with the youtube (which is where i first came in contact with this magnificent person). 

Regardless of a shared interest in horror cinema, it could be seen strangely as resembling a fan having a crush on an actress or singer. As stated here before i have a tendency to over-think every little thing-which most likely has developed from writing/directing films (which she has similar skills). It's almost like dare i say it (cliched and all) the perfect person you could only ever dream about. 

On the contrary realistically my track record with woman is as foul as rotten meat. Not being pessimistic its true. One can't account for email exchanges & hardcore flattery on my part to expect anything to end positively with this, Yet who's knows as Jimi once said. This post is to likely come off as creepy as i have another tendency to scare women with words, so i guess this mix-tape is a document of yearning or carving for someone, who you are most likely never going to be able to see or wake up next to one morning and just to stare at their natural beauty. Just reading back through this makes me sounds totally nuts so I'll leave it here!
